Avignon Grand Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
From the outside this hotel looks average and the roadworks directly outside do nothing to help this but as soon as you walk into the foyer you can see that you are in a nice hotel. Booking in was easy. We were on the first floor overlooking the City Walls. A wonderful sight as the sun rises. Our room has two large double beds with ample room for storage and a bar fridge. A sliding door separates the lounge room which has another tv, desk and coffee making facilities. There is a seperate vanity with on wall hairdryer next to which is the toilet, shower and full size bathtub. Impeccably cleaned daily. Breakfast is worth the 15 Euros with a wide selection of items. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling with children or alone!
Wonderful huge room, with adjacent sitting room. Great views looking at the "walled city". Road construction out front made it a little challenging for the taxi service, and our tours, but obviously this is not the hotels fault. Very nice shower, however we seemed to have a little problem with controlling the water temperature. The front desk was very helpful, especially Heather who went over and above with her helpfulness in whatever we needed help with. Nice breakfast area and good food. Would be wonderful if this area could also serve dinner..
An arrival with a main entrance closed by works on the street. A disaster. The hotel clean, spacious, old, i.e. little updating of their rooms, their elevators always busy for service. An unattractive bar, where at 8pm they hesitate if they will attend or do. If you want a late check-out they tell you that you should pay Euros 15 for each additional hour, i.e. they have no have a real late check-out. Finally they accede and give us 1 hour of late check-out. . But the important thing the hotel satisfied with. Looking other hotels around, this is a luxury, of course you are light years far to be able to say that they are 4 stars. Who would grant them?
We visited here at the last minute as we were due to travel into the Alps but it had been snowing so we decided to head to Avignon instead. We originally booked in for one night but it was so nice and in such a perfect location that we stayed for two! We had a Superior room which was laid out with two double beds, a bathroom and a sitting room. It was very nice. The staff in the hotel were very polite and also very helpful, in particular Heather was extremely helpful and recommended a fantastic place for dinner on our final night, she even called ahead and made a reservation for us! The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the old city as it faces the old city wall, the only annoying thing was the roadworks out front as they were confusing and limited access to the front of the hotel. I suppose the good thing is that they won't be there forever! All in all a very nice stay.
Stayed here for two nights, had a junior suite, which was very nice, with a little lounge, & two double beds, bath & separate shower, & toilet. Staff were very helpful , especially Heather the American lady, told us of a great Pan Asian restaurant called Colonial,she called them up for us. My daughter is disabled so we needed room with her scooter. All was good, the owner was waiting outside for us when we arrived. The car was in a car park below the hotel, just took the lift straight up to the reception. Overall all was good, they were all very helpful.
A friend had stayed here and loved it. The location is good and were leaving on the train the next day. We were "upgraded" to a ridiculously large two-bedroom, two-floor suite. Had we known, we would not have gotten two rooms. First problem: no air-conditioning. We were sweltering and, of course, there are no screens on the windows so when we opened them, we were infested with mosquitos. Evidently, the air-conditioning is turned off in September - no matter how hot it is outside. The beds were hard as rocks. The icing on the cake was that when we tried to leave our room in the morning, were were locked in! A locksmith had to be called to let us out. The front desk lady was calm but completely uninterested or unconcerned regarding the situation. We were on the third floor. What if there had been a fire? A heart attack? Any emergency? Zero apologies from anyone, and the locksmith said the locks do this from time to time and need to be replaced every two or three years. After a rushed breakfast (which was excellent, I will say), we made it to our train on time.
Stayed here one night on our road trip Nice rooms and very helpful staff. Not a great view from the hotel We did not eat at the hotel as there was so much choice in the town Heather was incredibly helpful and had som great tips. Many thanks
Horrible no air conditioning the room was so hot and stuffy didn't get any sleep. They turn off their air conditioner in September so bad luck if it's warm and they are not accommodating Don't stay here find somewhere else if you want a comfortable night sleep
It's 9:15 at night and the temperature outside is 19 degrees but it's still sweltering hot in my room. Management have turned off the cooling, and won't reinstate it, so I'm it looks like I'm facing an unpleasant evening. Booked in for 3 nights, and tomorrow will be 29 degrees so really not impressed!
Stayed here for 6 nights. As many reviews have said, the rooms are spacious but the furniture is oh so dated and the bed uncomfortable. Shared the room with many mosquitoes and didn't get any sleep for couple of nights. No atmosphere in the lobby area although the reception staff are friendly and helpful. Just as well we planned a lot of trips and spent very little time in the hotel.
