Modern Hotel centrally locatedPosted Oct 23, 2013
Pros: The Mercure chain is well run and moderately priced.
Cons: The air conditioning system could be improved so the windows don't have to be opened to cool the room.
Location: There is a block of wonderful restaurants adjacent to the hotel and the Palais des Papes is across the street. Nice shops within a 3 block area.
The Mercure Cite des Papes is a moderately priced hotel modern hotel. It is a bit noisy given its central location and proximity to restaurants and bars, but generally comfortable and clean.

Nice hotel very centralPosted Sep 13, 2013
Very clean and well located hotel right next to the papal palace. modern interiors and bathroom was particularly impressive. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a bit small but that is what you would expect for the location.

Awesome location and great roomPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very satisfied... would stay there again and recommend it to others. Not only was it a great hotel, it was convenient to the Palace and a ton of great cafes and shopping. Darn near perfect!

Excellent StayPosted Aug 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is just next to the major spot. Many restaurant nearby. Fast wifi is a merit. As we drive to Avignon, but the nearest car park to hotel is few minutes walk on the unflat path, so not easy to take luggage from car park to hotel.

The hotel offered the conveniences of an American style hotel while still maintaining the French flavor.

Great hotel, small details missingPosted Jun 10, 2013
Pros: Convenient, confortable.
Cons: Non-working air conditioning!
Air conditioning in room didn't work. Also small upkeep things like kickboards in lift that had been broken and removed but not replaced, hairdryer that didn't work... shouldn't these things be checked? I thought Mercure was a quality chain...

Modern in the midst of MedievalPosted May 31, 2013
Pros: The comfort level, the location in the very heart of the old town,
Cons: If you arrive by car, good luck getting your GPS to find it- even though once you DO, it seems so obvious!
Location: Super convenient and steps away from great restaurants, the Palace and the heart of Avignon
Very conveniently located for seeing the Papal Palace, this hotel is actually a very modern venue in a very medieval setting- but it works. The rooms were excellent, the service attentive, the morning view out the window was lovely.

Wine country base camp next to the Palais du Pape.Posted May 22, 2013
Pros: Nice room, nice bed, good fridge. Good food too.
Cons: They could be more agressive about turning on/off the central AC/heat -- was there when you might not need either, but with window open.. noise
Location: Main square and tourist highlights of Avignon are no more than 200 meters away. Lots of wine areas less than 1 hour drive too !!!
Solid hotel with stylish rooms and great location. Stayed for 3 nights and benefitted by having friends in a B&B about 10 minutes walk away where we could park our car (hotel has no convenient parking -- but you can load/unload right in front if you figure out how to get 'buzzed in' thru the barriers keeping most cars out of the clocktower square pedestrian area (call ahead). Breakfasts were good and restaurant was much much better than most on the main square.
