Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is very centrally situated in a courtyard on the main street with a public car park nearby. The hotel consists of 3 different old buildings of different levels. It has no lifts but otherwise the relatively small rooms have all the modern comfort including air conditioning. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced.

Nice 3 star hotel in city center. Clean comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Nice outside patio ideal for an aperitive. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast : fresh great tasting fruit, mature cheeses, fine sliced charcuterie, fresh baguettes, orange and apple juice, simple but great taste

Horrific experience, for the following reasons:
1) No air conditioning. It was 95 degrees outside, and it felt like that in the room. We sweltered. The front desk personnel insisted that we could adjust the temperature in our room; not so. I finally went down to the front desk and complained and the person adjusted something behind the desk, which lowered the temperature by a degree or so.
2) The room smelled bad, probably due to problem number 1.
3) There was a musician with a huge amp directly in front of the hotel who cranked out crappy American music until 1:00 AM. If we hadn't already been unable to sleep because of the intense heat, we would have been kept up by the pounding music.
4) No safe in the room. I had to lock up my valuables inside my (thankfully) lockable suitcase.
5) Shampoo/bath gel container was completely empty, which we discovered while already in the shower.
6) No (apparent) nearby parking. The hotel should provide explicit instructions on where/how to park, especially during the Avignon Festival, during which time the street in front of the hotel is closed to vehicles.
7) The outdoor patio is nice, but not enough to compensate for the host of negatives.

Good morning, I am sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. We had no problem with the air conditioning system, the temperature is regulated independently in each room. And we also have general order at reception. Exceptionally, we have employed a musician/singer from the Avignon Conservatory, generally very popular, to host this festival evening until 11 p.m. The premium and privilege rooms are equipped with a safe. For other rooms, a safe is available at reception. Best regards Mathilde

Five minutes before arrival at the hotel they called me and told me they do not have any room for us. We booked it in September. They had made a reservation for us at another hotel situated in a off-center area without telling us. When talking to them they had no explanation to their behavior. No one was able to explain to us why they did the relocation. Be aware if you book this hotel you do not know if you actually going to stay there even ten minutes before arrival.

Hello, We are sorry not to have been able to welcome you. Indeed a technical problem forced us to close the room reserved for you. We explained to you and we booked another hotel of the same category, 200m away. We understand your disappointment, but your rating does not reflect the quality of our services. Kind regards, Mathilde

You’d think that a hotel advertising itself so close to the station would have a ramp to help you get down the steps with luggage. This property has steps abound, no ramps and staff that just stare at you whilst you struggle without offering to help. If you have mobility issues, do not come here. If you have any sizeable luggage, think again.
Staff totally unfriendly, towels grey and ragged, rooms worn.

Good morning, Our establishment is accessible to people with reduced mobility, and we have a suitable room. We have rooms accessible only by stairs, and others by the elevator. Of course, it is up to you to reserve the room that suits your mobility, and to notify us of your difficulties. Best regards, Mathilde

Hotel is not managed properly and is hit and miss when dealing with customers. We arrived late on a Monday night with prior notification of late arrival and found out there is no parking at the hotel or nearby street parking. At the risk of getting a ticket we quickly unloaded our luggage in the street and had to carry them to the fourth level after being told the elevator that was operational was not available to us for unknown reasons. We get to our room and it is suffocating hot without the ability to turn on the a/c. We go back downstairs to ask why the a/c was not working but the receptionist was gone to bed for the night. After ringing at the desk for over five minutes, the receptionist wakes up from his sleep to tell us he does not service the rooms at night. When he finally comes to the room after our insistence, he discovers the switch to the a/c hidden behind a closet that guests should not be expected to discover on their own.

Response from Hôtel Central Avignon, Directeur général at Hotel Central Avignon
Responded 26 June 2023
Good morning, I'm really sorry for the confusion. The Jean-Jaurès car park is located 150m away, in the same street as the hotel. The hotel is made up of several buildings which only communicate via the ground floor. The oldest part is not accessible by elevator because its structure does not allow the installation of an elevator. This is why we market our rooms by very clearly specifying "access by stairs" or "access by elevator". Rooms with access by stairs have lower prices. The night watchman, after having welcomed you, left the reception for a moment to prepare the linen and the soaps ordered by the chambermaids for the next day. Each room is equipped with a wall control to adjust the air conditioning. Best regards, Mathilde

We enjoyed our three days here more than any other French hotel we've used, because its like being part of a family. Great room; if you're not great at stairs, pay a bit more for the area serviced by the lift. Simple bar on the ground floor, with a courtyard area that's impossible not to relax in and which encourages conversation. However, the gem is the rooftop garden; we put a meal together from the local Carrefour, including wine and beer, and took the lot up there, no problem.
Its an easy walk from the station and close to everything; like most places we stayed I'd love to have seen a couple of USB ports in the room However, if that's the worst I can say, I need to get over it and buy another adapter. A wonderful place from which to see an ancient city.

An excellent location in the old town, a very close walk to the train and bus stations in Avignon right on the main street through the old town. So also a very close walk to the Papal Palace and the Place de l'Horloge. Very clean and surprisingly big room with a buffet breakfast included. Staff there was great and spoke english as well.

Located on the main shopping drag. Very clean room, friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast plentiful and wide choice. Whereas the room was perfectly fine, the bathroom needed serious attention - toilet seat not fixed, shower door needed sealing surround and new handle. I would suggest a couple of bottles of water in the room? No lift so there were 3 flights of stairs to the room - not for those with poor mobility. BTW the wine and tapas bar attached to the hotel was excellent. It offered simple but good food and the 50s/60s music superb.
