We had a week here in April 2017, as part of a choir tour, and found the place to be clean and tidy, very friendly staff, a good if frequently chaotic breakfast area, and a basic room with a good bath/shower, but paper cups for tea? Our 5th floor window could easily have been fallen out of, and the stair...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

If you want to stay on the middle of the town in a good hotel, it is a great choice. Although the windows are little narrow, but the view is wonderful: you can enjoy the life of the center. And the center is full with restaurants and everything is very close. But if you are sensitive on the voices and...

if you are visiting Avignon for the first time, as a tourist, that this Hotel is the place to be. We spent 3 nights here and we found that it is close to all central activities, restaurants, and the Palais des Papes which we saw from our room. A bit noisy during mornings, but if you face the back than...

Great location, next door to the Palace, by the main square. Friendly but efficient receptionist Paula had everything ready for us the moment we gave our names. The hotel was, as expected, modern, well-decorated & nice & clean despite the rain. The room was fantastic. Large with lots of windows, an enormous bed & super bathroom. It was spotless &...

The hotel has simple clean rooms, the staff was pleasant and accommodating. They gave us adjoining rooms which made our stay very nice. Next to the Palais and walking distance to everything in Avignon. We had a lovely breakfast.

Ideally situated in the heart of Avignon. We had a bad start as there was an awful smell in our room. this was quickly resolved however without any fuss. The rooms were clean and okay for a short stay. The staff on the front desk were very friendly and helpful. All in all good value for money

The Mercure Avignon Centre Palais des Papes was such a wonderful hotel right in the heart of Avignon. Since we had a one-year old baby with us, we sprung for the Prestige room to get a little more room. I highly recommend this room for the killer view from the terrace and a wonderful bathroom. Plus, you get an in-room...

we stayed offseason, just after new years for one night. The location is great, next to the Palace and near many restaurants. I think the staff the first night was probably new, she could not fix a problem with our bill and she did not know the hours of the palace. I would think being the only person at a...

Firstly, the receptionist who checked us in was amazing and very helpful - 5/5 stars! The overhead shower is awesome, one of the better showers I've had on my 4 week road trip around Europe. However, the rooms are tiny - barely enough room for two to move around, never mind accessing your luggage. The springs on the left hand...
