I decided to have a short halt of 2 nights in new (for me) Mercure Hotel; I was very familiar with former Swiss Belhotel as was the prevoius name and also with Mercure AUH.
The good thing was that the personnel is the same (and a good point is that they recognized me even was some time I didn't accommodate there), the rooms are the same. So no changes from this part.
The thing that I missed was the evening open buffet, before full of surprises and very good; for some period is only based on menu and unfortunately some specialties (as snails for example) that are valid in Mercure AUH are not valid here.
I was told that as new policy, if hotel is not more 50% loaded is no buffet. As seen, were more than 50% load with guests, so I don't think this is the reason.
I really hope to be solved this aspect, and if possible, to have same variety as before, too.
Otherwise, everything is fine and I really appreciated the period spent there.
