“Best Etap in france, yet not so clean rooms!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

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!

Hotel Etap was exactly what we expected--basic, economy accommodation--good breakfast--perfect for a couple of days' sightseeing with relatives in Arles. A little outside the centre of town, but services nearby.

Room Tip: Keep the window closed--mosquitoes!
