We stayed 4 nights in the room on the top floor with a terrace overlooking the Popes Palace. It was a lovely room and the terrace was an added bonus. There are plenty of places to eat close by in the square and there are nice shopping streets. We walked to and from the station and it takes 10-15 minutes. The staff were friendly and helpful, but be warned breakfast may be a challenge as there are bus tour groups who stay at the hotel and go through the breakfast food very quickly. The air conditioning worked well and it was quite warm when we were there. We really liked Avignon. A pleasant city and a lot to keep you occupied for several days.
