We are disappointed in this hotel. We booked a standard room. We got an attic room with a very small window overlooking a neglected garden at side of the hotel. We complained and the next day we got another standard room in the 'modern' part of the hotel. This time with a big window but a blind wall as a view. Wd recommend to book another hotel if you want to book a standard room.

Lovely building. Exceptionally clean and excellent service. Very helpful & friendly staff. Very quiet. Excellent central location - easy to walk everywhere. Heather gives you top tips on excellent local restaurants. Perfect all round!

We were surprised how close the hotel was to the main area of town. The hotel is older but we chose it for the classic feel and it was delightful. Breakfast in the morning was reduced as a special price and great selection.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Firstly the hotel atmosphere is lovely, and it is very conveniently located near the Avignon Centre train station/city walls. The cloister has been converted into a hotel. This means that there is a single tiny elevator to take you to each floor. Unfortunately for us, our room was up on a mezzanine level only accessible by stairs. There were no hotel staff to help us with our bags. Our room was spacious including a separate living area. The bathroom was very poorly designed with no light in the shower (literally it was pitch dark), and a bath tub with an extremely high faucet meaning the water went all over the bathroom floor. There were multiple boulangeries and restaurants in easy reach of the hotel. Overall I would recommend this hotel for the atmosphere and location.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Cloitre Saint Louis. We arrived at the High speed station and took a cab directly to the hotel for less than $20€, and were warmly greeted. Since we arrived prior to check-in, we left our bags and strolled around beautiful Avignon. The hotel is set in an old monastery so the rooms have a unique set up, which we liked. Our room had a balcony and was spacious and very quiet. The bathroom is modern with a good shower. The location is perfect for seeing all of Avignon on foot as it is located within the old walls of the city. Also, it is a short walk to the local train station for day trips. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and every one we encountered spoke excellent English. We opted for the hotel breakfast for $15€ per person, and it was very good if a little pricey. The breakfast had a wide selection of cheeses, meats, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, plus scrambled eggs and bacon, coffee, tea, juice, and of course, pastries. The hotel also has a restaurant open in the evenings, but we did not eat there...too many other enticing little places scattered around Avignon. Good value for the money and we would stay there again.

We liked the hotel. It is quiet central 15 minutes walking distance to popes palace. Staff was friendly and breakfast good. Parking is available for 15€ per day Rooms are Ok, nothing spectacular though. We thought only thing which was bad, were the thin walls You could hear everyone talking on floor as if they'd be right next to you. Anyhow, we thought it was good

The hotel is housed within a beautiful 16th century building and located within the old town so that al of the sightseeing areas such as the papal palace, Pont d'Avignon, etc. are in easy walking distance. The historic interior is pleasantly appointed with modern furniture and lighting and the bedrooms are pleasantly furnished. The breakfast buffet was slightly chaotic. The secure parking is worth the Euro15 but otherwise the hotel is somewhat expensive for what it offers.

We booked into this hotel because when we stayed here in 2000, it was very nice and owned by Best Western. This time was a disappointment. The staff are wonderful and eager to help. However, while the rooms are nice, the shower is minuscule and has a tendency to flood the bath area. There is no shelf in the shower to put soap or shampoo, so it has to go on the floor. Also found the hotel to be noisy, with a DJ playing in the restaurant until 11 or 12. In the morning, something starts humming from 4:00 onward. All in all, have reservations about recommending.

The hotel is, for the most part, in a beautiful 16th century Jesuit school. It's superbly located in the centre of Avignon. Our room was in a modern wing, and although it made good use of the space available, felt a bit more like a university halls of residence room (albeit a nice one) than a four-star hotel. The finish and fittings were a little tired, and given it is not a cheap option, didn't deliver fantastic value for money. None the less, it was good enough - just not great. The art gallery just around the corner is well worth a visit - stunning building with very good collections and visiting exhibitions.

We stayed for two night recently (4 couples). The hotel is very interesting and a great place to stay in the centre of Avignon. The arrangement for parking were good as was the service provided by all the staff. It was quite disappointing that the bar and restaurant were closed to guests on the nights of our stay. That was however compensated for by good meals at nearby restaurants. The four rooms we had were good except for the ventilation - once we worked out the opening of the skylight all was comfortable. Would stay again though check facilities availability.
