We stayed 11 nights at the Thames Residence Hotel (which is inside the Grand Hotel) near the central train station (Gare Central) and the bus station. It is directly outside the city walls of the old town of Avignon, but a short walk to all parts of the old town. Philippe was an excellent host; he recommended restaurants and places...

I stayed there for 2 nights in May. The residence is adjacent to the Grand Hotel (same entrance). Very nice room (# 169) in general, nice bathroom and a small kitchen. Please note the balcony view was not the best (the city wall is on the other side) but it was quiet and private. My host Philippe was fantastic and...
