We stayed at Mercure because for one, it is a recognised branch around the world and therefore knew we wouldn't be too disappointed because they have made a name for themselves. The location is great as it is just outside the Old Quarter, and by just outside I mean easily walkable in 10 minutes to the hustle and bustle, and a 1USD for a taxi ride back to the quieter street of the hotel from the Old Quarter. The rooms are small (we had a standard room), but as a young couple we do not need any luxurious study rooms or ensuites and for just ducking in and out, it was a perfect relaxtion resort. All the things to do in Hanoi are OUTSIDE THE HOTEL OF COURSE!
Everything inside the room was modern and chic, decorated with modern colours and the windows to the streets had a french influence.
The bathroom however are pretty tiny, and the shower looks amazing but would never be designed in a home. There is no door as it is designed as 'an open shower' with just a glass panel, so the bathroom can get floor can get pretty wet. However, this is just a minor issue where the staff clean your room to new every, single day.There is also a fitness centre that I did not use as it was pretty small and not a variety of equipment at all, but you win some, you lose some.
The breakfast buffet is small, but again just right. You can order vietnamese pho or choose the large array of french bakery goods. Not to mention american breakfasts of bacon and eggs etc.
All in all, yes things are small, but for a city hotel this is pretty normal, everything is fitted just right to suit your needs. We will recommend to friends and families. Thanks for a relaxing stay!
