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

Here we are just outside of Nimes and still at our gorgeous little farm. Today we headed to the bustle of Nimes to check out what's happening. Well......... We found the set for Russell Crowes Gladiator only it is NOT a set, it is the rigidige colosseum, and yes, the arena was used in the movie Gladiator. The most pristine Roman colosseum in Europe. It was built at the end of the 1st century AD. As we went through self guided tour you ...
... Unesco listed site but it didn't grab me, I did appreciate the engineering feat and the architecture however, Brendan LOVED it, he was totally in awe of this site. Weird, we are similar but different. So tonight we are bunking down at a farm just outside Nimes, we have electricity and wifi and the owner is a lovely French gentleman. This afternoon we sat and had a beer and soaked up the amazing late afternoon sun and said to ourselves, life couldn't get much better than ...
... nearly all which was done by Paul. He loves doing itineraries and he loves technology. He relishes setting up my communications and he tracks my every movement using smart phone apps. He can look at an app and know where I am right now. He knows if my plane is on time or running late. He keeps an eye on me and we speak everyday. If we have good wifi we have a video call. He does all this because he's also a nice person and he ...
... occurrence in the ancient arena. We line up and purchase tour tickets and make our way down underground along the vaulted corridor out into the seating area of the arena. The tour is really a waste of time and we are not impressed as we all sit on the hard benches in the blazing sun and listen to a recording of the history of the arena. So we wander discreetly away and find a cafe for coffee and croissant.
Nimes is quite a pretty city ...
... we have driven round in a gigantic circle and at last found a huge shopping centre to buy a French sim card for the poor broken phone. With the help of really lovely sales assistants at Orange trying to understand our broken French.
The phone is still turning off and on and getting extremely hot so i shut it down to conserve the battery. It is possibly more damaged than we like to think. Once again we manoeuvre back out into the mayhem of the traffic it is a ...
