Hotel Mercure Annecy Centre is a short walk from the rail station. We had a bright comfortable room with a small balcony facing Rue Vagelas. Breakfast was complimentary for seniors over 65 years. The breakfast room is not large, and depending on occupancy it is best to get in early for a table. The hotel is well located on a relatively quiet street (Rue Vagelas), with shops and a supermarket close by, and the old town (many restaurants and quaint buildings) is a block away. The many other attractions of Annecy, including Lac Annecy, Musee Chateau, are within walking distance from the hotel. The hotel staff is helpful and friendly. We stayed 3 nights in the hotel.
