Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cloitre Saint Louis Avignon
Great hotel and location
My husband and I spent one night at this hotel last month (Nov. 2003).
It is located at the entrance of the walled city. It was very easy to find since there are signs pointing to all of the hotels. The hotel is very comfortable and clean. I would recommend staying here when visiting Avignon.
We loved this hotel so much we stayed in Avignon an extra night. The staff were so helpful and the pool on the roof was gorgeous. The medieval courtyard was magical, but our room was bang up to date modern, stylish and delightfully air conditioned. Breakfasts were superb and the whole place was spotless. Having spent our first night in Avignon in a ghastly hotel that was not much cheaper, this was heaven.
A so so room in a dull place
This hotel is on one of the uglier streets of Avignon, a city I like a lot. We got a rather large room in the attic of this old monastery and instantly I started to feel claustrophobic. It went from bad to worse when I found out you couldnīt open the windows. Possibly they have better rooms, but I would hesitate before booking a room in this hotel again. On Saturday night the hotelsīs restaurant and bar were closed, so it was all a bit dull.
Serenity at the Cloitre
The setting of this hotel is the picture of serenity just steps from all the tourist attractions of Avignon. This is one of the rare hotels that exceeded it's online pictures. The rooms are huge in comparison to what you get in Paris, the restaraunt was wonderfull, and the pool is a nice break in the late afternoon from a full day of sightseeing. And the staff was very helpfull, friendly and funny. I highly recommend it.
P.S. It is a bit hard to find since it is off of a side street that is a one way street. But there are actually street signs right off of Avenue de Republic to guide you.
Gorgeous hotel in quiet quarter of Avignon perfectly located for exploring the city and surrounding countryside. Friendly staff, great catering, spacious and well furnished rooms.
10 minute walk from Palais and only a 2 minute walk from Eurostar terminal!
This is the hotel you want in Avignon
This hotel was one of the highlights of our trip (my wife and I) to Provence last year: beautiful setting and rooms, amazingly friendly/helpful staff, great breakfast buffet (best we've had anywhere in world) and dining, central location within the walled city, AND BEST OF ALL, a huge, free parking lot adjacent to the hotel...the only one this convenient in the walled city of Avignon. After staying here and checking out the other hotels in the walled city, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
Amazing architecture, not really hard to find, walking distance to the Palais but it's a walk! Great deal during off season (March). Nice staff.
We stayed at the Clarion for 2 nights in Jan 03. Had some issues finding the place using the directions on their website but it was at night and we were tired. The hotel has no front. Very weired setup but pretty cool once you walk in. We could almost hear/see the kids running down those halls ( I guess the hotel used to be a school ). We stayed in one of the rooms in the new addtion. The room was large but the layout was strange. The room is a rectangler... the bathroom is totally open with no door for privacy when taking a shower. The toilet is on the other side of the room with a door. If you stay around there... make sure to visit O'rileys just down the street. Very nice irish pub.
Anyway, the room was clean and nice people. Wouldn't stay here again just because I would like to try something new and the room had a weird setup but sometimes the dollar speaks louder. great price $70

After downing the drinks with the thirst of a man stranded on a desert island without water for 6 weeks, food was ordered, rapidly consumed and after switching to a couple of glasses of "vin rose"' we got the bill, paid and walked off the lunch back to the B&B. Unlike the previous 'how far can you demean yourself by slumming it, Dimmock', beds for the evening, this place was a dream. Set in typical converted 'Mas' style Provence ...
We landed refreshed and ready to go and enjoy the sunshine and blue skies. We were given Priority #1 tickets to fast-track immigration but still had to wait for our bags. Caught the shuttle to Terminal 2 TGV station to await our train to Avignon, which arrived on time. Easily found our carriage and seats as there are signs on the platform telling you exactly where it will stop. So much easier than second-guessing where to be like we did ...

We walked to a plaza full of outdoor cafés and had baguettes for lunch. Then walked up to the Palace of the popes where the popes lived in the 14th century and did the tour with great views of Avignon from the top. As it was ...
... here from the bus drivers to the Mcdonald's workers seem to be plucked from a magazine. The town itself demands such beauty when it itself is as aesthetic as ****. The tranquility of the place is surprising, it's different to the Swiss Alps but it is just as much from a story book as Lauterbrunnen. Our hostel was pure ****, one of the rooms smelt horribly of sewerage, the beds were **** and the whole place looked run down.
