“Overrated in my opinion”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

I booked the Hotel Cigaloun following the good reviews. The hotel is nicely decorated and I can't say I had a bad stay, but my room had some faults that make me say that the hotel is overrated, at least for my experience.
The main fault was noise isolation: no noise from the street, but in my room you could hear other guests entering and leaving their room and you could here very clearly other guests having showers.
It was difficult to set hot/cold water in the shower.
I took a double room for me only so it was really ok. For two people it would have been quite small.
The bed mattress was of the hard type, which I like (good for my back).
I must say that the guy at the reception was nice and helpful.
Breakfast is normal, maybe it can be rated as "good" for French habits. I would have liked some yogurt or something pro-biotic, most hotels offer that for breakfast.
The hotel is is a nice central area at walking distance from all antique buildings.

We had booked our room, a standard double room via the internet and with the help of T/A reviews for 3 nights.

We arrived by train and it was about a 20 minute flat walk to the hotel.
We received an excellent reception from the owner with perfect english. She gave us plenty of advice about restaurants, as well as being able to buy tickets to the Theatre and Museum, and gave us a map of the town.
  Another day she provided excellent advice on catching the local bus to outlying villages like Vaison la Romaine, Sablet and Seguret.  We really appreciated her advice as these bus trips are a highlight of our time in the Orange area.

Our room was Room29 on the 2nd floor.  There is no lift but easy gradient and the width of the steps made it easy to get the bags to the room.
Our room was very clean  with a double bed, 2 bedside tables, a wardrobe and desk, plus tea making facilities.  The  Ensuite was  newly renovated.  Free fast wi-fi.  Very quiet also.

After having tasted the breakfast the 1st morning, we opted to continue with it for the next 2.  Excellent quality.

Hotel is very well  located in the old part of town, within easy walking distance to the Theatre Ancient and  Arc D Triomphe and shopping and restaurants.
On our last morning we could leave our bags while we did some further wandering around.

We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend Hotel Cigaloun

It's rating of number one in Orange is well deserved, Could not have had a better welcome, parking on site easy reach of everywhere, including excellent V Cafe opposite Theatre Antique.
Don't be fooled by the fact that it's says Bar a ,Vin cooking is superb, wines great value. Anyway back to hotel. we had room 11 on front, which had a double bed, bAth and separate single bed as sofa, with reading light. Room has full length mirror, tea and coffee making, and was clean and welcoming. We would return and thoroughly recommend,

Room Tip: See other note, we liked room 11 though

Very nice stay at this hotel this weekend. The room was small but very clean & had a very nice bathroom & garden view. The garden was lovely & the owners could not have been more welcoming. The hotel is really very well situated. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view.

Orange is a good base from which to visit the region: Vaison-la-Romaine, Le Barroux and Gordes for example. Orange itself has Roman ruins, including a triumphal arch and theatre. The hotel is clean and comfortable. We had an upgrade, due to a mistake with our booking, but we didn't mind. Our room was large and well-maintained.
