"So Much Potential Yet So Underwhelming"
Beautiful old building with wonderful court yard and generously sized rooms...but that's about it. The staff was rude and barely acknowledged us as we came and went, breakfast was meager at best for what they charged, you had to pay daily to park in their lot despite being a guest at the hotel and repairs in the room were poorly done. On the whole we were very disappointed. This hotel is screaming for someone competent to take over so this beautiful spot can realize its full potential.

"Night in Avignon"
We stayed in the new building, which was modern. The room was spacious, clean, well-equipped. We were able to open the window to the courtyard, which was nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location was great, walkable from the bus drop off at the Poste and walkable to the Palais des Papes.

"location location location, not much else"
Beautiful lovely old ancient building located in center of town, within short walk of all major attractions of Avignon, including old Papal palace and bridge. However, our refurbished room was on top floor underneath uneven ceilings and arches, we bumped our heads, and there are lots of spots on low ceilings where we could see other residents have also bumped their heads. Service was very poor, ask directions to the pool or restaurant or bathroom or your room and they will point you off in any direction just to get rid of you! A nice staff that ensures you get to your destination in the hotel would be a nice innovation for them! The staff actually appeared to us to be rude and uncaring.

"Dinner"
Nice hotel and location. We dinned one evening in the hotel restaurant and the food was wonderful. The only troublesome issue was that one of the wait staff had a terrible cold and should not have been working. We told the head waiter how disconcerting is was to have someone who was sick handling our food and silverware. No action was taken as she was workng the very next day.

"Comfortable large room"
We stayed in room #305 and that room was inside a old church which connected to the main hotel. The location was excellent (for us), because we were a block away from the train station on our right and the main city to our left (as we exit the hotel). The hotel itself is very old, and nothing is "perfect" but you can sense the cleaness as soon as you entered. Some cracks in the celings, and I think our showerhead was broken? We didn't have a view, but their large windows made it very pretty. We visited during some type of a festival in Avignon and there was much to see :) We definitely enjoyed ourselves!

"Waste of money"
The room was dormitory like in its amenities. The air conditioning in the room did not work. While the staff continued to say "this is France so the air conditioning" does not work like it does in the US, they were able to provide a fan. With he windows open and the fan we were able to sleep. I'd recommend you go for a drink or possibly a lunch to see the site but I would not waste your money on the overnight. Possibly some rooms are nicer but that was not my experience.

The location of this hotel is great. Trying to find it and parking for it is a nightmare even with GPS. The room itself was nothing at all special-plain, adequate. A/C only to a certain degree. The grounds though were beautiful and the dinner exceptional. Sitting outdoors for dinner was a lovely setting. Made the stay there worthwhile. The hotel personnel we encountered were all very friendly and helpful.

"Good Location"
Location perfect for walking to the major sights. Suggest that you have a list iof restaurants that are close as we found we were a bit overwhelmed by a new location and no knowlege of where certain kinds of restaurants could be found. A plus was the parking in the back for easy access. Another plus the spacious room. I don't think we were supposed to get such a spacious room but we arrived a day early and we were accepted early with an upgrade on the room. I believe we would return.

"Who rated this property a 4 star?"
By far the worst hotel we stayed In of the three hotels in Provence. The rooms were shabby, dingy and dirty. We were excited to stay in a former monastery, but you would have never known that is what it was since they put us in the annex. It looked like a cell block in a prison. A common area was not available for relaxing with our friends. The front desk personnel actually seemed annoyed when a question was asked. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Highly recommend this hotel"
The hotel is located within the old section of the city and easy walking to everything. Our room overlooked a courtyard with trees and a water fountain. Very quiet and serene. The room is much larger than in other places creating a relaxed atmosphere when two people are moving about the room. The room was clean and had the largest bathroom of the five places we stayed during this trip. We do have to mention that we were upgraded (not sure the relationship with room size). The hotel staff is very helpful and knowledgable of places to see and even other restaurants to visit. The hotel restaurant staff was professional and the food very good although the location and shape of the restaurant is a bit odd. It is essentially in a corridor that may have once been opened to the courtyard situated 'outside' of a series of interior rooms. We highly recommend this hotel.

"Great, modern rooms with a view of older Avignon"
It was a very pleasant stay. The service was friendly and the room was beautiful and modern. I did the superior, which had a view of the courtyard, a modern bathroom and bedroom, and had a nice overall space. The rates were reasonable for quality and the location was well situated to see the main sites of Avignon. A couple of negatives would be a so-so restaurant and dirty water using hot water on our last day. Other than those it was a great stay and I highly recommend it.

Beautiful property and very classic hotel, but the service was somewhat indifferent. We booked online to get a good rate. Our room was very nice but there was a noise from a motor in the ceiling that made it hard to sleep, and the staff was aware of it but didn't warn us. Not to discourage anyone from staying here, but room 26 is not acceptable.

"Delightful stay in a stunning propery"
Everything at the Cloître Saint Louis contributed towards a wonderful stay: the property is absolutely stunning and peaceful, laid out around an inner courtyard where three majestic plane trees rustle in the most delightful way in the breeze; the staff was absolutely charming and accommodating - they even provided me with late room service past the normal service hours one evening when my return to the hotel was delayed; and the location is perfect as Avignon train and bus stations are within walking distance as well as the city centre. I am definitely going back and recommend it warmly.

"Avignon stay"
This is an unusual Hotel in that it was once a Jesuit school . On a site in the centre of the City , It is built around three sides of a sandy quadrangle with many mature trees and a narrow entrance from the street. In the centre is a fountain covered in moss ! Our room also had a unique feature . On the ground floor - itself raised from the street - there were 6 steps up to it. Whether this was because of the previous usage as a school or whether it was flood protection - the River Rhone sometimes floods the City - I cannot say. The room was very large and comfortable- and dark ! At one end was a form of patio with strip lighting - in the middle we were groping around. The Restaurant was excellent - although a limited choice the cooking was good. We never took breakfast - a good tip for France is to always to find a local Cafe doing Coffee - croissant . It will cost you half as much as a Hotel breakfast - and the croissants will be straight from the oven !! Overall definitely worth the money. Bring a torch though !

"Great Place to Stay"
We were attracted to this accommodation as it was several hundred years old and had an interesting history. We were not disappointed by the standard of this hotel and were delighted to be upgraded to a two level room. The dining room is superb, with a lovely ambience, located in what would have been part of the original cloister of the monastery. An easy walk from the train station and a few minutes from the main shops. The Palais du Papes and the famous bridge are also within walking distance. Though not inexpensive, we felt it was well worth the cost to stay in a place with such character.

"Good, but flawed hotel"
The hotel is in a good location and is in a beautiful building with excellent rooms. However, it has not got some of the details right. There are tea/coffee making facilities but it only supplies paper cups. The room had a mini bar but with no alcohol and we only had thin plastic 'glasses', supplied for the bathroom. We have stayed in much cheaper hotels with proper cups and glasses! The staff are perfectly efficient and bi-lingual but we got no sense that they were concerned about how we were enjoying our stay in the hotel or Avignon. After staying in this hotel we went on to stay in a similar quality hotel in London where the customer care was infinitely more friendly, without being obsequious.

"Great hotel for City break"
It was a great place to stay - full of character as it was a 16th century building which had been cleverly remodelled to a high standard. Modern rooms were stylishly minimalist facing onto a pleasant green courtyard. Space had been used very cleverly so that there was plenty of room for clothes (sometimes an issue in new hotels) and a separate loo and bathroom. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were expensive but worth it because the food was plentiful and delicious. Had dinner there twice and both meals were beautifully cooked and presented from an interesting menu. Rooftop pool was quite small but plenty of space to lie on deckchairs close by and soak up the sun. It was within the historic city centre and 10 minutes away from Palais des Papes. Watch out for mosquitoes though, as we were quite badly bitten when dining in the hotel garden and on our balcony.

Lovely historic cloisters sensitively re-used as a hotel with friendly and helpful staff. A welcome little pool on roof as July was very hot, c.38 degrees.

Old part of hotel looks fab, cloisters, chapel, nice garden for breakfast. But our room was in the modern part. Here the furniture was shabby, the chest of drawers was falling to pieces, bathroom was very cramped and the toilet room was so small I ended up using the loo by the restaurant. It was also a big shame that the swimming pool was not open as it has no water in it. This was not nearly as good as other 4 star hotels we have stayed at. Breakfasts were good!
