Hôtel de l’Horloge, Avignon

Centrally located hotel with a Provençal-style library lounge, cozy rooms, and breakfast under a veranda

Overview

Hôtel de l’Horloge sits on the Place de l’Horloge, almost directly in the middle of Avignon's historic Old Town. Despite being on a buzzy square, you'll still sleep soundly on a charming, cobbled side street. The hotel has a rich history and is known for its authentic character and contemporary Provence ambience. Here, you'll be a 5-minute walk from restaurants and attractions like the Palais des Papes and Avignon City Hall. 

Make yourself at home in a room with warm tones and materials like wood, sea rush, and wrought iron. The accommodations range from simple yet elegant standard rooms to more spacious suites, all providing the comfort of a 4-star hotel. Furthermore, the Junior Suites, Privilege Rooms, and the main Suites feature welcome gifts, while the Tradition Rooms offer a double bed or separate bed option. Not all rooms are served directly by a lift, and some rooms may have steps to enter the bedroom area or access the bathroom.

At Hôtel de l'Horloge, you can enjoy a Provençal buffet breakfast on a beautiful veranda. You can also enjoy breakfast in your room or on your terrace. The hotel also features a library lounge that doubles as a meeting room, a souvenir shop, and small reading nooks on various floors. Previous Kimkim travelers have praised the hotel's breakfast, known as the best in Avignon, which offers fresh, local, and organic sweet and savory products.

Great location for walking to all major sites within the walled part of the city. No hotel parking garage provided and a bit of a walk to the public parking garage. Read more

This hotel is in a great location in Avignon - very close to the train station, lots of restuarants and the Palais des Papes. The room was quite large and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great - lots of tasty options. We would definitely stay in this hotel again. Read more
