"Old World Charm in Rhone Wine Country"
La Miranda (Avignon) is a magical retreat within the walls of the old City of Avignon, which is in the middle of the Rhone wine country. Parts of the building dates to back to the former residence of cardinals that served the nine Popes that resided in the grandiose Papal Palace next door, which was the seat of the Catholic Church during the 1400s. Our room was spacious and decorated in fine French country still style. The breakfast room overlooks the beautiful courtyard gardens and is set up with a vast French breakfast buffet, of breads, pastries, yogurts, fruits, boiled eggs and, of course, aromatic cheeses. A special treat was a Chef’s diner down in the kitchen and wine cellar that once served the cardinals. Six of us (three couples all strangers to each other) watched as our charming young woman Chef cooked on a wood burning stove and her assistant served amazing appetizers, a delightful baked cod, then veal rib roast and followed by desserts and, of course, cheeses. Each course was well paired with a wine from the region. The hotel staff is top notch courteous and helpful. Their restaurant and winery visit suggestions were “spot on.”
This hotel has met all our expextations, wonderful location, historic building, very well restored, spacious room, excellentbreakfast and very wellcoming staff. Thanks to all. The only thing we regret we missed the table dinner prepared by cheff in the 19th century kitched, which was only on Tuesday and Wednesday every week. We were there on Wednesday but it was full booked. So I highly recommend advance booking.
"Charming, tasteful, friendly boutique hotel"
A charming hotel, with lots of tasteful details, set in a very old building, excellent central location next to the palace of the Popes. Friendly welcome at reception, staff generally efficient, professional and friendly. Has a very good dinner in their celebrated restaurant, with a nice roaring fireplace. All good, a nice place to stay if you are visiting Avignon.
"Charming hotel in an excellent location"
Right behind the Palais des Papes, conveniently located in order to explore Avignon's center, and the riverside. Each room has different decoration, character, charm, while the same applies to its public spaces such as its bar, restaurant, tea room etc.. This is a very old building (>600 years old), and a pleasure to spend a night or two in it. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and valet parking equally convenient (and necessary). Breakfast was adequate, and the dinner at its restaurant (whose setting is very beautiful) quite good. Went there with friends, and I am confident couples will enjoy it even more.
"Luxury Boutique Hotel"
This hotel is directly behind the palace of the popes in Avignon.It dates back to arounf the 14th century and has been refurbished in the style of the the old french palace and so is very quirky .The rooms are fairly small but well decorated but do not have amenities such as tea/coffee.Our room was let down by the bathroom where my wife had trouble turning the shower on because the tap was so stiff and there was mould on the tiles and the ceiling of the bathroom.Not good enough for a 5star hotel and the price.Staff were generally very friendly and helpful except for 2 at the front desk
