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

Visiting Arles, one of the most distinctive towns in enchanting Provence, is like journeying back to ancient Rome. The town is filled with landmarks and ruins dating from its periods of Roman domination that began in 30 BC. Here, you'll view the outside of the colossal hilltop Roman amphitheater, where 21,000 spectators thrilled to gladiator fights in the first century ...

Back through the Wall and off to find dinner. I had spied a Couscousserie the previous night which I wanted to try. Run by a v cheerful Algerian. The inside restaurant was up a tiny vertiginous tiled spiral staircase, so we opted for sitting outside. As un-co as we are, the prospect of an unglamorous tumble loomed large in our minds.

We go to the middle of the bridge and watch the fish biting almost as hard as Priya just did, it is a pretty cool little day stop, after about half an hour we're summoned. Next stop is Barcelona, it'll be cool to get dressed up for a change, maybe head to Opium. I need to wee.
