Stayed here for three nights as part of an organised tour, and can't fault the place. Location is excellent for the old town, just a short walk across a car park to get to it, and much much quieter than staying in one of the two hotels within the city walls. Breakfasts were superb, and the dinners were also extremely... More

Great position for exploring the medieval castle or a walk down into the old town.The hotel is modern, and our superior twin room was excellent The breakfasts were fine with plenty of choice. The evening meals were poor, with equally poor service. I would recommend eating out, there are many varied restaurants nearby.

A nice hotel with friendly staff. Very close to the medieval fortress. Nice pool. The breakfast was not included in the price and the cost for one night was quite expensive. I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a group organised by a respected travel company. The hotel is very convenient for the old city, only a few minutes walk away. Our room was large (a king size double bed + sofa which would have made a third bed I assume), very clean, air-conditioned with tea and... More

We stayed here for two nights to explore this fantastic area . The hotel is just outside the old city and is very easy to walk to . They have a good sized free car park and a cute swimming pool if it ever stopped blowing to use it ! Not much to say other than that , the rooms... More

I booked this hotel on the Mercure website on a non-cancellable 'hot deal'. The price starts in £s then converts to Euros so I ended paying £10 in conversion rates. When I discovered that other websites were advertising the same deal for about £100 less I phoned and emailed to complain but received absolutely no rebate or satisfactory explanation as... More

Great location for the medieval cite, secure car park, lovely gardens and having a swimming pool is a great bonus way to relax after a days site seeing. The food in the restaurant is very good and presentation also of a good standard with a good choice for dinner and breakfast. The staff could do with some training though there... More

Fourth and final stop using up my Accor reward points and after two nights away from Accor in a huge standard room in a Kyriad Prestige near Toulon this was a disappointment. We booked a standard room for two nights. The plus points are - great location (about 350 meters from main entrance to Cite), free car parking, free Wi-Fi,... More

I loved this hotel. It is located right at the gate to the city, has on site parking and every convenience of a modern hotel. The breakfast was great and the staff very helpful. Our took had a garden view near the swimming pool and frankly from my perspective, this is the best value for money hotel in town.
