“Great location & the guys on reception are outstanding”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

This was our first visit to beautiful Avignon which we loved & it proved a great location from where to visit Orange (disappointing); Nimes (recommended) & Arles (a highlight) all by train. Situated minutes from the Palais des Papes, Hotel Medieval was the first base for a 3 week holiday in Provence & the Cote d'Azur & the guys on reception here outclassed all other receptionists that followed. Without exception they were friendly & considerate, genuinely interested in their guests & very helpful. As an example .. .. we returned from a wonderful day in historic Arles which we visited when there happened to be a big festival (1st May) at which the menfolk present their lady with a little bunch of Lily of the Valley which is pinned to their beautiful victorian costumes. As I'd returned without one, the guy on reception excused himself to return moments later with a little posy for me which scented our room for the remainder of our stay.. .. how thoughtful! There's no lift & all rooms above ground floor are accessed by a sweeping staircase. We were in Rm 20 which overlooked a quiet side street. As expected for a 2 star rating it was quite basic the only drawers being those in the bedside tables; there was a large walk in closet with a few hangers & a wooden table with 2 chairs, a wall mounted TV above, & a comfy double bed with rather dated bedding. The air conditioning wasn't connected in early May & there were no tea/coffee making facilities. The small, modern, en suite had a half bath over which was a good quality shower & the towels were good quality too & replaced frequently. Communal hair dryers, iron & ironing boards were available through reception. Breakfast was available at extra costs but we preferred to eat from local patisseries or cafes. There are some lovely restaurants in Avignon amongst which our favourite was Le Tour closely followed by Chez Lulu which is a stones throw from reception & we enjoyed the neighbouring Bagel Bagels for a late breakfast too. It's worth walking up to the Rocher des Doms park above the Palais des Papes for great river views & of course a first glimpse of the famous bridge Pont St-Benezet. The city walls can be accessed from here too & they make a very enjoyable walk around the perimeter. Despite its tourist prices we found ourselves frequently drawn to the Place de L'Horloge which is a great spot to soak up the sun & ambience whilst people-watching! From the hotel it's only a 15 min walk to the station from where there are regular trains to some fabulous destinations such as Nimes & Arles. Enjoy!!

It was an ok bedroom, bathroom could be a little cleaner, but it had a bathtub. Walls are pretty thin, could hear other guests from across the hall and up stairs. Staff was very helpful, breakfast was fine. Location was great, close to all attractions. If you have a car, there's parking nearby. There are a lot of stairs and no elevators. Is a great base to drive around the villages of the Côtes du Rhône.

The hotel is in a perfect location, just a couple of streets from the Palace of the Popes and Town Square, as well as all the fine restaurants on the way. Mike was fabulous from the time of booking via e-mail, and was very helpful and informative upon arrival with recommendations for dinner and places to see. With 2 adults and two 11 year old children, we wanted to be in one room; in hidsight we could have had two rooms with a bit more space but everything was fine with Mike setting up an additional bed for us in the triple room.
There were minor issues other reviewers have mentioned like the timed shower, but this was a great hotel with superior value for money. I would highly recommend it, and with Mike "at the helm", we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor. The courtyard rooms looked nice with a pleasant area to sit and relax o...

Reviewed 22 November 2011

This hotel was recommended by trip advisor and several other sources,however we found it to be very mediocre. It was very dark in the hallways and the room and we did not find it to be at all charming especially after my daughter 24 year old daughter was severely reprimanded by the front desk clerk when she entered the lobby wearing her prescription sunglasses. She was told in no uncertain terms that it was very rude to wear sunglasses when communicating with him and he was insulted that we had not greeted him personally upon entering. We had already checked into the place early that morning and were discussing briefly amongst ourselves what arrangements we needed to make regarding transportation for our trip a vineyard the next morning. When my daughter who speaks fluent French began to speak to him, he went off on this tirade telling her there was no need to "try" to speak French as he was an Englishman. I asked him if there was a blow dryer we could get for the room and he grimaced acting like I had said something vulgar. I reiterated that I needed a hair dryer and also a conversion plug. He came up with the dryer but went to a drawer to look for a plug and said "the Americans' always steal them so they did not have any to lend. It was obvious he did not like Americans and was very condecsending to women. We were both very upset and it ruined our evening. Out of all the hotels there, we had chosen this one and were very upset by the unwarranted rudeness of this man.
