The hotel is located just outside the city 15 minute walk. the area around the hotel is scruffy and also a rather low class housing development colours your opinion of the site. The hotel itself was well up to standard and the staff friendly and helpful. One word of warning whilst we were having breakfast a walk in thief came... More

We loved our 3 night stay here! Friendly staff, great location, large, clean room. We enjoyed the close proximity to the historic areas of Arles, museums, and business areas, and easy access to the highway. We were there in late April, and the grounds were gorgeous, with irises and wisteria in full bloom, with a bright green, grassy, hilly area... More

I am torn about this hotel because the staff were wonderful, maybe the friendliest and most attentive I have ever encountered in a hotel. But the property was dumpy and depressing, located in a really sketchy area, the breakfast was lacking (even by Ibis Budget standards), and the place just seemed sad. When we pulled up, we expected there to... More

When you book to Etap, you know which level of facilities and services to expect. So they did it 100 %. Cheerful staff, restaurant with etap prices, but you need to be ready for a walk if you iwsh to get to some "central" places. Recommended!

This Etap is inside the Mercury hotel, the rooms are together. So, stay at Mercury for the price of Etap. Giant rooms, nice neighborhood, nice bathroom, nice staff, good everything, except for the clealiness. Carpet was a little dirty. But, in the end, great for the price.

Martine on reception was lovely. The way this hotel is joined to the Mercure Hotel has a number of advantages - big hotel facilities (restaurant) with economy prices. Handy for main routes but 'a pied' to Arles is a little tedious.

Right off the main highway, and a couple of blocks from the fantastic Archaeological Museum and the Rhone. A 3 minute drive to the city center. Friendly staff, good wi-fi service. Nice pool. Only downside was the slow elevator.

I liked this hotel. It was visible from the autoroute and handy for the junction. The town was about 15 minutes walk away. The staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of free car parking! There is a modern archaeological museum right outside and a Roman-themed garden. You can also walk along the Rhone into town an beyond!
