Visited over Lunar New Year / Valentine's Day with my partner from 13 - 17 Feb.
Conveniently located right in front of National Stadium BTS, it is merely one stop to Siam (do walk though!) and a few more to the major BTS stations. From the airport, you can take the Airport Line to Phaya Thai before changing to Siam then hop right off National Stadium. Sounds like a huge fuss but trust me, its easier, cheaper and quicker than taking the cab. But should you be taking one, do note that the address is pretty new to the cabbies - simply direct them to National Stadium BTS or MBK mall (you need to tell them to turn right and keep slow when you have MBK on the top right of the t-junction). Lots to buy and see and eat on the streets down to Siam especially when the vendors lay out their stalls on the sidewalks by afternoon.
Relatively comfy for up to 3, roomy for 2 persons. Mercure rooms are generally high floored (Ibis rooms are on the lower floors). We got a room on the 21st storey and the view was fabulous. Housekeeping is perfect - amenities always replenished, and always came back to neat tidy rooms.
Had breakfast included daily which was good because most shops do not open before 10am. Eat your fill then head out for some shopping or sightseeing. Breakfast spread is adequate but nothing to shout about, however definitely good enough.
Rooms are equipped with hot water making facilities, hairdryer, drinking water, and iron. No minibar set up during our stay though. Complimentary wifi is provided and you can also use the computers at the lobby (level 9 for Mercure guests). TV has over 90 channels but dont think you'd be indoors much anyway - would be great if hotel could implement a channel guide.
Love the employees - always friendly and ready to help. Concierge and security were great, pity we didnt get their names. The guy we approached went out of his way to give sightseeing and transport advice - just ask them the best way to get there and heed the advice. Security guard on duty also went out of his way to get us a tuktuk at reasonable pricing because there werent any cabs on V-day.
4.5/5 - am coming back!
