Excellent hotel right in the center of AvignonPosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Comfortable, charming, easy close to everything, pleasant and helpful staff, croissants available around the clock, excellent breakfast, holiday decor
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Location: Central location right in Place de l'Horlage, several minutes walk to Palais de Papes, Pont du Avignon, restaurants, shops, churches, etc.
From the warm welcome to the excellent customer service to the lovely, comfortable room, my stay at Hotel de l'Horlage was delightful! Awaking each morning, the sonorous tolling of the bells of St. Agricol informed me of the time, then and throughout the day! It is so nice not to have to consult one's watch.

A nice hotel in Avignon.Posted Oct 14, 2013
We enjoyed a stay of two nights at the Hotel de l'Horloge. Our room was comfortable and quiet, even though it faced onto the Place de l'Horloge, the busy square in the centre of the old town. The staff were very pleasant and provided good restaurant recommendations. The hotel was a short walk from the Palais des Papes. We didn't ever eat breakfast in the hotel, choosing to have our breakfast at one of the many cafes on the Place de l'Horloge.

Nice hotel in AvignonPosted Sep 27, 2013
Pros: it is in the center of Avignon plus walking distance to the buses going to Gare Avignon TGV and the Gare Avignon Centre.
Location: We walked to the Pope Palace and many shops nearby. For breakfast, we went to a Bakery nearby.
I read from previous reviews that it is very hard to find. In reality, it is very easy to find, follow directions going to Place l'Horloge and there it is. The room we got (room 110) is very spacious and the bathroom as well, very clean and comfortable bed. Our friends got room 112 and they were not as lucky as we are, they got a small room but of course their room rate was cheaper. I understand now what the reviews I read said that it being at the plaza, you need to request for a room in the higher floor, we were on the 1st floor, so we heard a lot of noise. For us, the noise was in the early morning. At 5:30, we heard the garbage truck, the cleaning truck, the delivery trucks and the restaurant below hosing the street. If you are an early riser or deep sleeper, it is fine. But otherwise it was a pleasant stay. The restaurant beside the hotel (Lou Mistral) have great food and reasonable price.

This is NOT a 4 star property.The décor is dated and bordering on shoddy. It was central and convenient to the sights and it was clean but the building requires a major overhaul. My double (booked) room was just OK and was definitely overpriced.

central location in AvignonPosted Sep 11, 2013
Pros: Apart from all the above comments,the check out time was 1200 hrs with the facility to store luggage for a later departure.
Cons: Would not need to change anythig
Location: ,Popes Palace, garden,Cathedral.Pont St Benezet.( go on, dance on it!) lunch boat cruise to Arles. Pont du Gard.Nimes(take train for half day)
The hotel was about 15 minutes walk from the central station(not the TGV station 15 mins bus ride away!) Right on the corner of the square only a few hundred yards from the Palace des Popes.Bear in mind some european hotel star ratings can be less than Uk, ie 2* in Paris are more like broom cuboards! We upgraded to superior and were very pleasently surprised at the room size and facilities. All the staff spoke wery good english, were curteous and very efficient. e mail contacts were also very efficient(Thank you Kevin!) Didn't haave their breakfast but used the shop on the opposite corner called 'Snacking' .good english spoken and cakes to die for. Sit outside with a 'Grand Cafe' and watch the city go to work. Find the indoor market, Les Halles with it's vertical garden, buy your own bread and make your own snacks. Also the Carrefours supermarket is best for everyday provisions. its on the main street which runs right from the station to the square.

Superb beds and breakfastsPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
We couldn't have been more cotent. Friendly staff superb standaed of room except for theseparate wc, Location could not have been betterd.Hot nights -windows open thus it was noisy but drop a few degrees and the double glazing would have kicked in. You can't gag the French at night discussing at the top decibel range.

Great locationPosted Aug 14, 2013
Pros: Location and the staff was very helpful in suggesting restaurants. Don't bother with the breakfast, there is a great bakery around the corner.
We stayed here for 3 nights and I would really recommend it. The location is perfect for a visit to avignon- it's 1/2 block from the square.
