Great location, not so great experience.
The location is excellent. However the hotel is quite run down. Our non - smoking room had clearly been smoked into and all they did was spray with refresher and that made it worse. Also, I am quite certain we got a ton of bites all over on our body while staying here. Still dealing with the pain. The room lacked pillows. We got two tiny pillows. The shower design is so bad. Everytime the bathroom fills up with water spilled from the shower. The hotel needs work.

This is definitely NOT 4 star hotel. Location is amazing, right next to all historical places and have a lot of dining options close by. Tiny room with uncomfortable bed and almost non existing pillows.

Perfect location
We had a basic room which was very clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but perfect as a home base for us during our stay in Provence. The hotel is perfectly situated in the center of the old town. Lots of sites, shops, and restaurants to walk to. Yvon At the front desk was delightful and gave us great recommendations and information throughout our stay. We can’t wait to visit again!

Perfectly located
Small rooms, but very functional and have everything you might need. Our windows opened to the Pope Palace, and walking around the walled town was lovely at any time of the day and night.

Good Location , Friendly Helpful Staff, and somew
An older but comfortable hotel. Located within a brief walk to a variety of attractions. On a boulevard lined with stores and restaurants. WiFi was available in room and was usable to plan our daily activities and pre-purchase . No concierge, but staff very friendly and helpful with accurate directions and suggestions. No breakfasts served on the premises, but many sites available within a short walk.
