A privileged location in the heart of the city.

This hotel is very located in the center of the old town and within walking distance to cafes, restaurants, sightseeing and shopping. However, rooms were very basic and should not have a four star rating but rather a three star rating. The rooms were dated, bed was ok,

Overall this hotel is good although the rooms are a bit dated. Staff are helpful, the drawback is breakfast, the set up of the room is awkward with stairs on both end but no tray to carry your food. You end up going up and down many times. Tables are not clearly quickly, an area

Stayed overnight here with group. Hotel is excellently located right at the edge of the main square and next to the main sight - the Palace of the Popes. The building is modern with a nice design. Our room was clean and quite spacious with a really comfortable bed and a decent

Confusingly, there are two Mercure in Avignon. This one is right off the quais, driving directly into the hotel parking with a stop-off point to drop baggage before seeking a more permanent parking space further “up.” [As is typical in Europe, parking is not free to hotel

Hi there. Yup as the others have answered. Approx 15 minutes walk. Have a great time, the hotel is in the perfect location!

No. But parking is available in a public garage. The entrance is just a short distance from the hotel. You drop off your luggage (its a little tricky getting to the hotel, but consider it an adventure--it isn't impossible--you may have to circle around once after you figure out how the one way streets all work). Then you drive into the garage. The prime location of the hotel is worth the slight parking inconvenience. It really isn't a big deal though. When departing the hotel we didn't even bother driving back to the hotel. Garage was close enough we just wheeled our bags to the car.

Hello ! We don't have parking at the hotel but we work with the underground car park named Parking Palais des Papes which is 1 minute walking from the hotel! To find it: you drive along the city walls till the famous Avignon bridge (Pont St Bénezet on signs), then you will have the entrance of the underground car park. Take the ticket at the barrier and go straight to level P1 which is the nearest pedestian exit from the hotel! You will have to validate your ticket at the hotel in order to get 20% discount! Kind regards and see you soon at the hotel! Yoann Receptionnist

I am afraid I don't think there are any such rooms apart from rooms with views. They may only be views of nearby houses rather than views of anything else
