We had a pleasant stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was ideal for getting around. The hotel is situated just within the old city walls from where all local attractions are within walking distance. On the other side of the city wall within a five minute walk is the train station from where one can catch trains to all local destinations. There is also a shuttle to the TGV station which stops nearby. Best of all, the hotel has enclosed on site parking with quick and easy access to major roads. We used our rental car to go exploring on some days and the trains from both the local station and the TGV station on other days.
“Beautiful historic hotel”
The hotel was absolutely gorgeous. I must have taken fifteen pictures of it because of its beauty. Everyone that worked at the hotel was polite, helpful, and Phil has perfect French and beautiful English. The rooms were modernized, and it was comfortable. Get the standard room, it's cheaper and they are like lofts...so the bed is upstairs while the bathroom is down. I can't wait to return, and when we do, we'll certainly stay at the St. Louis. Also, the location is perfect.
“Historic, convenient and comfortable”
The location is great. Get off the TGV navette (bus) at the Post Office; it costs E1.10 and runs most of the day and night. Walk around the corner. Some rooms are quite minimal (others nicer) and for warm weather there's a pool that I've never used over several visits. Desk can get busy. No tea/coffee sets in rooms. Nice breakfast at extra cost, patisserie and pharmacy nearby. Walk to Palace of the Popes, shops, etc. Great town.
“Amazing Setting with Updated Rooms”
The hotel is in an old cloisture and has a modern edition. We were in one of the rooms in the original cloisture. You had to go through a small chapel to reach the rooms! We had 2 floors with a sofa bed, living area, and full bathroom on the bottom floor and a spiral staircase, bedroom, and another full bath upstairs--which is unbelievable in Europe!!! The service was superb, especially Philip at the reception! It was conveniently located to the Palais du Pape, shopping areas, and restaurants.
Beautiful, clean and very quiet rooms. Well appointed. Centrally located and very near the Tourist Office where they have great information on the area winerys. Parking was availale on site which is not always true in small walled cities. Helpful with good restaurant suggestions.
“first choice in Avignon”
having stayed at several Avignon hotels, this is the -- best bang for the buck -- impeccably clean, large well appointed rooms, excellent staffing service. It's prior history as a cloister is evident in the architecture throughout the hotel.Being inside the city walls it is ideally located -- one block from the main street. added benefit of having parking on site at no charge. My next stay in Avignon will certainly be here.
“A Best Bet”
Total satisifaction with this hotel,staff and location. The room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. The desk staff could not have been more helpful. Location was excellent. Would not hesitate to return. With all this praise said, I do have one negative. The hotel restaurant was a failure. Staff was not at all friendly. Service was poor at best. I think they were trying to be a be something they were not. Would not recommend the restaurant at all.
The location of this hotel is ideal in my opinion. Close to the shuttle stop yet tucked away. It is pretty and quaint. I stayed in the "old" section which was nice. They also have a rooftop pool.The shower is a bit small but that is really the only problem I had and it was fine. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it.
We just loved this hotel - the staff was uniformly pleasant; the dinner menu was innovative and reasonably priced; the rooftop pool was small, but delightfully refreshing with 95 degree temperatures; we were walking distance from all the sights we wanted to see; and we enjoyed the quiet.
“Lovely, Unusual Hotel”
I loved the rooms in this hotel! They were unusually designed, very spacious and modern. There is parking in the back of the hotel for guests. Staff was very helpful. The hotel's location is excellent for walking within the old city. A computer is available for free internet connections.
