First, I want to say that the picture in the profile here is not correct. the building that the Murcure is in is more of a war bunker, solid concrete.
Anyways, onto my stay...I personally hate making reservations, I much prefer to scope the city out, figure our where I want to be then look around for a hotel. As it happens, I was able to do it this time around...so this says a lot for the location. Right next to the cathedral, within the midieval protion of the city and central to the action.
As for the hotel, I had never stayed at a Mercure hotel before so I had not idea what to expect. Being slightly suspicious I asked to see the room first. It might be worth mentioning that I was there with my wife and two young children, so we needed somthing roomy, which it was. I also suspect that because I wanted to see the room first, that they gave me the best room available (#329 if you're wondering) and it was, perched over the street and a straight view to the cathedral. The room was equipped with a King bed, and a sofa that converted into a single bed, they also brought up a crib for my son.
The room was a little dated/worn/basic (as can be expected in Europe), but it worked beautifully for our needs. It was a great base to explore Rouen, which was charming and nice in itself.
Parking was 13 Euro, which was a good deal! And in-room wireless internet was free.
