We enjoyed very much our stay at the Mercure Avignon Centre Palais des Papes. The location was perfect, the breakfast fantastic, and the personnel was very friendly. We really appreciated the kind and helpful attitude of Yoann, one of the receptionists. He is truly the best receptionist we have ever met!

We stayed at the Mercure for the weekend and truly enjoyed it. The staff spoke english and the hotel was clean and efficient. Excellent location, truly nest door to the Palais. The breakfast is worth every penny, it was also reasonable. It had everything. Clearly a great value for the money.

The hotel is excellent. So is the service. Whatever question we asked, the front desk person annswered with a smile on their faces. The breakfast buffet is very generous. Nothing compares to being right next door to the Palais des Papes, though.

My wife and I spent four days in Avignon at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff spoke English and could not have been more accommodating. Before I arrived I sent a few emails back and forth to request a balcony. Yoann was easy to deal with and told me in an email he would ensure I had a...

This hotel is right next to the Papal Palace, the focus of all sightseeing in Avignon. It abuts the Place de l'Horloge, with its many restaurants and cafes, and is a 10-minute walk from the Pont d'Avignon--which also is a captivating sight. While the hotel entrance, lobby and breakfast room are in a modern building, the hotel also has a...

Clean, friendly, but a bit worn by all of the 1 night tour groups. The location is the thing. Steps to everything that you want to see and if you need good restaurant recommendations, see my other Avignon reviews. I am not sure that there is small and quaint in this city. There is better at 3-5X the rate, but...

Location was very good. Room was clean and comfortable with nice shower and nice king bed. Breakfast in hotel was good, but there are many other places for a good breakfast in the area. Service by the front desk was very good. They helped a great deal with directions, map, recommendations for restaurants. etc.
