Hotel Le Cloitre St Louis4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We loved this hotel! It was in easy walking distance to all of the main attractions. The staff was incredibly friendly and the room was spacious and clean. This hotel has a lot of history and cool little quirks.
The fish at the restaurant of the hotel is not fresh and cooked badly.
We loved the atmosphere and amenities of this hotel. Old building, modern interior. Our room was a two level loft space with a nice view. It was fine for us being in our early 40's, if someone is older, you may want to make sure you get a room on one level. Hauling luggage up a narrow flight of stairs could be difficult. Plus, the bathroom was on the lower level, bed upstairs. Restroom in the middle of the night could be difficult too. I'm sure you could request the specific room to fit your needs. Hotel has an elevator. The rooftop pool was great for a cocktail and watching the sun go down (and, taking a load off after a busy sight seeing day). The staff was helpful (spoke English) and helped us arrange a wonderful winery tour. We took the TGV in from Nice and it was a short can ride to the hotel from the station.
I was traveling with my mother. We had only very short stay in this hotel. The room was nice and clean. The hotel itself is also nice and clean. There is small swimming pool on the roof. As a minus, very expensive breakfast.
Great location within easy walking distance to all major Avignon attractions and Centre-Ville train station. Gated parking in back costs12 euro per night. Front desk staff all seemed to speak English, which was hugely helpful. One of them even helped me make restaurant reservations in Paris for the next leg of our trip, which was great since my French stinks. Free Wi-Fi in the room. The only minus was that the bathroom had a weird stink, like a sewer, which definitely detracted from the overall ambiance of the room. I think the smell came up from the bathroom pipes, and even closing the drains didn't seem to prevent it from coming through. Of note, we stayed in one of the rooms in the newer section of the hotel. I don't know if the "older" rooms had the same issue. Overall, great value, great location, friendly staff, mostly comfortable room. I think I would stay there again but maybe ask to stay in one of the older rooms for a change.
Hotel didn't have our rooms ready so upgraded us. We had very nice rooms in the old section. Great customer service and desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Had read mixed reviews but our experience was great! We also had breakfast and it was really good (extra cost). Good location near palace of the popes. We sayed two nights.
The hotel is in a nice location, although I would have preferred if it had been a bit closer to the main attractions. The beds were very uncomfortable and an alarm kept going off the first night I was there. The first room given to me required approximately 25 stairs to the bedroom. I am not capable of that due to knee problems. My second room required 5 stairs to the room. Hotel staff not that knowledgable.
The cool thing about our room was that we had to walk through the choir loft of a 17th century church (still functioning, mass at 6 PM Sundays), complete with lovely stained glass, to get to our room. The room was simple but comfortable and definitely NOT 17 century style. The staff was friendly and accomodating. We could walk to the most interesting activities in town and were withing two blocks of the train and bus stations. We used both.
On check in the person was very impersonal and short. On a later encounter with her I inquired about the internet and she curtly replied no, only in the lobby. However I encountered the same person on check out and she was very pleasant then. Re the internet. I happened to look for a connection while in the room and it appeared that there was one, but it required a password, so I asked a different person at the desk and he very kindly told me that it might or might not work in the room but gave me a password and it worked fine. Apparently some rooms can get connection and some can't. The room was HUGE and had a big balcony overlooking a garden courtyard. There was a couch as well as bed, a desk and a small fridge/minibar. There were 3 closets, one with shelves. The toilet and sink were in a small room near the entrance and the bath/shower and another sink in the middle of the room....however the room with the bath had an open wall, no door, so not much privacy...and it had a handheld shower that was difficult to use without getting the floor wet. That was the only downside of the room. The breakfast was 16 Euros so we didn't try it. Did have dinner in the beautiful restaurant one night and it was good. The location was great....2 short blocks to train station, bakery across the street and restaurants all up and down the block.
