We were thrilled when we first entered this magnificent building which is a wonderful oasis of calm in bustling Avignon. But our rather scruffy room which cost nearly 300 euros was a bit like a capsule hotel room with a tiny windowless bathroom and a metal sink! The bed linens were sweaty and the pillows lumpy. The aircon was blowing hot and cold all night so sleep was intermittent. The breakfast involved taking a tray and helping yourself to whatever you could find - there was nobody to greet you and explain how it all worked. Juice was bottled. The fruit - peaches, plums, apricots - was as unripe as you'd find in a UK supermarket, which after two weeks spent enjoying the ripest and most delicious fruit all over Provence, felt cheap and cheerless. On the plus side, the service at reception was very good, the rooftop pool was a bonus and we had the most wonderful dinner in the hotel restaurant with great food and service. But I didn't feel that this hotel is trying hard enough in terms of its price-value ratio.

Come and discover the Provencal art of living during your enchanted stay at Cloitre Saint-Louis, only two steps away from the Palais des Papes (Pope's Palace) and famous bridge. ... more less
