“For a quiet stay”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We arrived quite late to this hotel due to the lateness of our fast train arrival time. I dont like room service so we went to the adjacent Sofitel for a late supper, the staff were very pleasant and food quite good. I must admit we were surprised with the size of the bed, it's huge, three people could sleep it. I knew that we were staying in a "compound" style property but was disappointed that we had to go to the Sofitel for a swim, I had presumed that the Mercure had a swimming pool. This meant I felt obliged to accompany my teenager daughter to the pool each time she wanted to swim. Breakfast was ok but the food only warm, not hot, unless you ordered an egg or omelette.
The rooms are quite large, we shared with our daughter (who was on a fold up), and were given a corner room. It was very quiet, which was a pleasant change to our bustling, huge Beijing hotel. I suggest this hotel for couples and business. Children would find the lack of pool etc a bit too quiet.

Room Tip: Request a corner suite

I haven't even stayed there yet, and I just had to write a review of the outstanding customer service I am getting from this hotel. They respond so quickly and thoroughly to email enquiries helping with airport transfers, room bookings, tours, and more. Their Reception Manager Evan Zhang has the most excellent English and is so helpful. Thank you Evan!

First impressions go a long way, and as soon as we arrived at the Grand Mercer, it was the little things that I observed that sets this hotel apart from other hotels, making the difference between a good stay or not.

During check-in the receptionist was courteous and professional. Checking in to any hotel in China can be laborious due to regulations that require photocopies of travel documents (e.g. passport), and the receptionist tried to make it as painless as possible.

When we walked into our room, it was our sense of smell that told us the rooms were going to be decent- that is there was none. No residual odors of recent cleaning products used, no smell of previous guests who disregarded the no-smoking policy, and no musty or moldy smells! Absolutely nothing, it was brilliant. Even though we had a ground level room, the hotel is off of the main road, so you will have no noise issues here. Our room was well appointed and provided all of the comforts one would need while far from home.

The hotel had courtesy umbrellas available for guests at the entrance that we took advantage of during a light rain while on our first walking excursion.

Food choices are numerous, as there are 3 hotels here Sofitel, Grand Mercer, and the Mercer on a compound resulting in a variety of food choices to satisfy your appetite. From Cantonese, Moroccan, Japanese, and a Brazilian BBQ. The prices can be steep at these restaurants so we splurged 1 night at Churrascos the Brazilian BBQ, and the total for my wife and I with drinks was $100.00 USD.

While all staff that we encountered were extremely friendly and professional a few of them are still trying to perfect their English skills so patience is a must.

I will say that to visit such venues as the Drum and Bell towers, or Beiyuanmen Street will probably require a taxi or the three-wheeled electric bikes to get there. It was hot and humid when we visited (1st week in July), and it was stifling. If you choose to walk to the towers for example it will take 30 minutes or so. There is a city square near the Grand Mercer (7 minute walk), and it was fun to visit in the evening when the temperatures were cooler, and the locals danced, played badminton, and participated in various other activities creating a truly local experience.

The bottom line: if you want a great venue that has clean rooms, a variety of restaurant choices, personable hotel staff, and affordable rates (we paid 80.00 per night) then you can't go wrong with this hotel. I almost forgot, we did order cappuccinos every morning and I was a bit disappointed in the size to price value: less than 5 ounces per cup and we paid over 10.00 dollars for two. Though they were excellent in taste, you get an idea of how the room service prices can add up quickly.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your kind comments on hotel ambassadors. I am glad you found them to be kind and friendly, as that is absolutely the way we would like our guests to feel when they are staying with us. We are very selective with our recruitment in terms of hiring people who have the right disposition for our hospitality industry.

I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our ambassadors as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

At the meantime, I am truly sorry to note that you found the portion of the cappuccinos you ordered less than satisfactory. Please rest assured that we have brought this to the attention of the relevant department.

Thank you again for sharing your experience and we look forward to welcoming you back in near future.

Yours sincerely,

This is a well appointed business class hotel in a complex of several others, which gives a variety of resturants from which to eat.

The breakfast had a good choice and was fresh and the staff were very polite and helpful.

The rooms were well appointed although ours seemed a little dark as it was on the ground floor with bushes etc outside

A good hotel in a nice location

I really liked the Grand Mercure hotel on Renmin Square, as everyone spoke English. This is a must find when in China!!! The breakfast buffet was excellent - all very fresh. The location was good and the spa in the Sofitel, the hotel next door, was just fantastic. The hotel grounds were nice, compared to other hotels. The bedroom and bathroom were a nice size, although the beds were very small. I think this hotel is a Gem in Xian.

Remnin Square is a modern square- lots of trees so its a lovely oasis in the middle of the city. The square houses 3 Accor hotels-Sofitel, Grand Mercure and the Mercure. plus another hotel all very nicely landscaped. Taxi fare from the airport is 150 RMB try and get a copy of the address in Chinese to give the taxi driver. Hotel staff spoke great English and were very helpful. Rooms very clean and well appointed -a great place to stay.

This hotel is located in a grouping of hotels in a safe, convenient location. The staff was friendly and spoke some English. Breakfast has abundant. Rooms were comfortable. Bathroom was large with an interesting "wet room" tub/shower combination. All in all a fine hotel in a good location.
