Mercure Pattaya Hotel
Travel Blogs from Pattaya
Left Adelaide very early this morning. Flew to Sydney then on to Bangkok International Airport. The flight was OK - about 8 3/4 hours but you watch a couple movies, eat stuff and try to sleep and eventually it is over.
The airport is nearly an hour drive south east of Bangkok city, and our hotel is in Pattaya which is an hour and a half …
... said to me as plain as day, ‘Ahhh why not you say Pius Place’. (Its what I had been saying all along and I even tried it in several accents…alas I got back to the hotel).
I had the intentions of heading back out with my waterproof camera case and camera – but decided a quick lay down was required and rest. I woke up at 1AM – so there went going out again with the camera. So being in bed so early Im up at 5AM. ...
Today was probably a little less exciting than our last two days here but we did venture out today to the Sanctuary of Truth. We were intending to get up at 8am but I had a blinding headache so we went back to sleep until 12pm. Clearly three beers is more than I can handle these days!
When we finally dragged ourselves out of bed we went to the bar downstairs from our room and ordered ourselves a club sandwich and iced drink ...
Sorry for lack of posts recently, I've been rubbish!
So I was down in the lovely (when I say lovely, I mean the opposite) Pattaya for just under a week living with a Thai lady named Mrs Noi and her family; they were all great and really treated us as part of the family. I arrived on the Saturday, was shown to my room, met the two other volunteers and then we were taken out to a floating market.

I'm the year of the snake so put some money in a stick and put it in. Ryan thinks he is the year of the ox and so did the same with that plant. We then wandered down the hill and towards the main part of the city. On the way there was a scooter crash with a bit ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Pattaya Hotel
Selected the Mercure Pattaya for a 4 nite stay during an extended Asian vacation in April 2006. Limited info available on TripAdvisor at the time and elsewhere on other travel sites. Probably due to newness of property since only open for about 1 year.
Ein Juwel im Herzen Pattayas
Das Mercure Hotel ist ein Schmuckstück im Herzen Pattayas. Es ist ein helles, modernes und komfortables Hotel (nur ein paar Monate alt).
Tolle Lage. Man hört keinen Lärm vom geschäftigen Pattaya und es liegt trotzdem in der Nähe von Geschäften, Restaurants und der berühmten Promenade (mit den Bars und Clubs). Das Hotel bietet rund um die Uhr eine kostenlose Beförderung mit einem Touk Touk ins Zentrum an (die Fahrt dauert nur rund eine Minute).
Das Mercure ist ein Hotel mit einer sehr familiären Atmosphäre. Die PR-Managerin Cecilia ist immer zur Stelle, wenn man sie braucht, und der Barmanager Phil tut alles, damit man sich wie zu Hause fühlt.
Ich kann es nur jedem wärmstens empfehlen.
Ich habe Anfang Juli mit 3 Freunden in diesem Hotel gewohnt. Ich hatte in einigen Berichten gelesen, dass es weit entfernt von der Hauptstraße liege, was mir zuerst etwas Sorgen machte. Da es ein neues Hotel war, wusste der Taxifahrer nicht so recht, wo es war, aber nach einem Telefonanruf fanden wir es dann doch. Als wir dort ankamen, kümmerte sich das Personal, wie es üblich ist, um das Gepäck und die Anmeldung ging sehr rasch vonstatten! Ich wohnte im 5. Stock und war mit dem Zimmer sehr zufrieden. Es war sauber.. schon mal ein guter Anfang. Das Essen im Restaurant war gut und sie haben ein Frühstücksbüfett für nur 200 Baht pro Person. Das Personal am Empfang war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und der kostenlose TUK TUK-Service zur Hauptgeschäftsstraße war ebenfalls sehr zuverlässig. Auf der Hauptgeschäftsstraße gibt es einen Wächter mit einer leuchtend orangenen Kappe, der sich per Funk mit dem Hotel in Verbindung setzt, wenn man gerne ins Hotel zurück möchte. Sie brauchen kein Geld für den Wäscheservice im Hotel auszugeben, da es viele Stellen gibt, wo man Ihnen den Service für erheblich weniger Geld bietet. Wenn Sie nach Pattaya fahren, würde ich Ihnen raten, hier abzusteigen.... oder im Marriott! Hängt von Ihrem Geldbeutel ab.
Just returned to UK after spending 10 days at the Mercure Pattaya. The hotel was brilliant; excellent service and the staff ultra-friendly with nothing being too much trouble.
I stayed at the Mercure in June 2006 on a spur of the moment trip. My taxi from Bangkok to Pattaya took about 2 hours, and when I first arrived in Pattaya, I thought I made a mistake because of the somewhat unkept conditions. However, when I arrived at this hotel, my spirits were revitalized. A very well run, friendly, and clean hotel. You have to pay for Internet access, but you aren't likely to spend much of your time in your room in the first place. The pool-side drinks are cheap and well made, the Wednesday buffet dinner is excellent and worth the price, and the room was always very clean. International broadcasts from the US, England, Japan, Korea, China, and Thailand were available in my standard room.
I stayed at this hotel with 3 of my friends at the start of July. At first i had read reviews about it being far off the main road so i was a little worried at first. Since it was a new hotel, the taxi driver from Bangkok was not too sure where it was but after phoning, we found are way there. When we got therehe staff helped take all the bags as usual and we were checked in extremly quickly! i stayed on the 5th floor and was very pleased with the room. Its clean.. which is a start. Food in the restaurant was good and they have a breakfast buffet for only 200 baht per person. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the free TUK TUK service to the main road was very reliable too. They have a guard on the main street wearing a bright orange top who radio's the hotel whenever you need to get back. Dont bother wasting money with the hotel laundry either as there are plenty of places where people will do it for you for alot cheaper. If your going to pattaya i would recommend you stay here... or at the marriott! depending on your budget
This hotel is rated as 3 stars, but it's really a 4 star plus. The free 24 hour tuk-tuk brings the slightly awkward location to the best in town, as the free shuttle takes two minutes each way. Nice pool, nice restaurant, but the best thing was the live music, every night, in the bar called "RAY'S". They have great first class musicians and singers there from i think 8 PM to past midnight. They could play anything, and they were great, (all US/euro pop music and old standards and Broadway songs too). After shopping or walking around Pattaya, it was a delight to have a nice place away from the Pattaya madness. Drinks are reasonably priced, and you can sit inside or outside on the terrace. they even had a "happy hour". You are so close to the crazyness of Pattaya, yet it's peaceful and tranquil there. The hotel also has a tour desk, spa, massage, some weekly activities/classes. Food in the restaurant was fine, and an incredible value. Some nights they had a nice big buffet too. Everyone was friendly, and spoke some English. I almost feel guilty, as the price was paid was only around $30 a night, which was a HUGE bargain! A similar hotel in Europe would be $150 to $200 without any problem.
i stayed at the mercure hotel for 5 nights, it is a nice hotel, beautiful scenery at the rear pool area but it has its fair share of problems.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 7 days between 19 - 26 December 2005. This is a brand new 3 star hotel owned by the french Accor Group. We chose this hotel by price and pot luck, we paid 1200 bht or £17.00 per night for a double room.On arrival at the hotel I was very impressed with the set up, very modern lobby, cafe bar and Bistro restaurant. Our room was excellent with all the usual touches, mini bar and balcony with a pool view. The room had a smallish bathroom with only a shower, but all very modern. Service was outstanding and prices for room service etc, very reasonable. This hotel is located behind pattaya second street, some 500 metres from the action, be grateful for this it provides an oasis from the constant noise. The hotel provides a complimentary TUK TUK ride to the heart of the action and a return ride too. French style in this excellent hotel. We would definitely stay there again, probably the best value hotel in Pattaya.
