Where to stay in Avignon

Help! I am overwhelmed with all the choices for places to stay in Avignon. My husband and I will be there for 4 nights in June 2009. We want something nice, cute and in a good location. Our goal is to stay under 125 euro per night. Any recommendations would be wonderful. Thanks!

We stayed in Avignon for one night in September 2007 at De l'Horloge. It was right downtown, very close to the the Papal palace, restaurants, shops, etc. The room was pretty small (as is typical of less expensive European hotels we have been in), but it was quite nice, the staff was very helpful and the location couldn't be beat. It was only 113 Euros per night at that time. I found it and reserved the room on Venere.com.

I can tell where I would not recommend, unfortunately. Hotel Colbert. It was inexpensive (60 Euro I think). Nice breakfast and check in area. But there was a distinct sewer smell that came up from the shower drain. We had to close that door at night to keep the smell out of our room. And we had a really hard time finding the hotel.

Hi Sarah, We have stayed at the Mercure Cite des Papes hotel on several visits to Avignon. We enjoy being in the heart of the old city. There is an underground parking lot 100 meters away. Mercure is a hotel chain with hotels all over France (along with it's sister Ibis hotels).

Hi Sarah. This past spring I was in Provence and we stayed in Isle sur la Sorge at Chambres Sous l'Olivier. I know you're looking at places in Avignon, but just in case. Isle is not too far from Avignon. Loved this place. The best part was that the owner Julian made fabulous home-cooked meals which we shared with Europeans vacationing there. We ate out too but found that Julian's food was far better (and cheaper). Plus when you're done eating - you're home! No driving.

Happy travels,
Amanda
