We arrived in Avignon by train, and this hotel was easy walking distance, even with heavy bags. It is one block off the main road which makes it peaceful and quiet, but still near shops and restaurants. Buffet breakfast is a bit expensive, but plenty of good food choices. The building itself is just lovely, built in the 1500s around a central courtyard. We liked the quirky historic rooms but ours had interior stairs so be sure to specify if you have limited mobility. The hotel does have an elevator. Look for the 16th century chapel just hidden away in the building - we found it by accident and it was spooky, dark, and wonderful!!

It was a room on the 5th floor. Staff were very pleasant and I enjoyed my stay. It was quite an expedition to find the breakfast room though, and I only belated discovered a very pleasant though poorly lit lounge on the same level.
Although the weather was not wonderful ( it was January) I made use of a very pleasant little terrace adjoining the room; it was great to get some fresh air like this. Above all the hotel was quiet despite being in the very centre of town.

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful long weekend at La Mirande recently. I would recommend this hotel especially in off-season as I imagine the service is more attentive (as it was during our stay) than it would be in the summer. Our room was spacious and charmingly old-world. The many common spaces are delightful, especially the indoor atrium which services afternoon tea and the walled gardens. We also enjoyed dinner at La Mirande which served an especially good cheese course. The entree was nothing special but overall I would highly recommend this hotel and restaurant.

Historic and stylish, Avignon’s highlights are the beautifully preserved ramparts, a huge medieval fortress, and the monumental Palais des Papes, recalling Avignon’s 14th-century papal seat prestige. Made famous in a children’s nursery rhyme, its medieval bridge is also a top attraction, although only four arches remain of the original 22. It’s also famous as a city of performing arts and hosts a spectacular Summer Festival.
