After having stayed at the Ibis Siam Bangkok which is in the same building as the Mercure, a couple of weeks prior, I can definitely recommend paying a bit extra to stay at the Mercure. It wins hands down!
The Mercure is stylish, modern and sleek in every way. Check in and check out was a breeze. The rooftop pool was perfect after a long hot day of travelling. Although it is a bit of a wind trap up there, so hold on to your hats (literally!).
The room itself was perfect. Spacious, clean, modern, free wifi and great bathroom amenities. I have to pay special mention to the shower, which was in my opinion, possibly the best shower I have ever used anywhere! It is awesome. Wait until you try it and then you'll see what I mean!
If I had to be really picky, then I would agree with other reviewers in that the bed is definitely on the soft side, however after a full day of sightseeing and shopping, you'll be asleep in minutes anyway.
The breakfast was average. It had all of the usual suspects that you would expect, however not a great selection of hot western items and the chef on hand to cook eggs how you like them, only really offered fried or scrambled. Not a big deal really, and was still well fed, but I did leave breakfast slightly disappointed.
That aside, this hotel is one of the best I've stayed in, in Bangkok for value for money and for location.
It is directly outside BTS National Stadium station, which makes catching the train to /from the airport, a breeze! No need for taxis here. Everything is on your doorstep, all within walking distance, MBK mall, Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon.
Mercure is definitely my number one pick for Bangkok and I will definitely be back!
