Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Pattaya Hotel
Mercure is Another Low-Priced Gem from Thailand
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.
Its newness and value pricing more than compensate for its relatively remote location and lack of on-site dining choices. Hotel provides a regular shuttle to main dining/shopping area until about 1 AM-about a 5 minute ride. We selected a room with a queen and two singles for about US$55/nite for our family of 3 (teenage daughter-age 17). Didn't know what to expect as no room pics or further description.
Walked in and found the two beds were actually a fun area of room designed for youngsters and decorated in a cartoon theme based on Warner Bros. characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, etc. One bed had a laddder/slide to get to the floor. This area also had its own TV with a Playstation hooked up. Great touch and my daughter got a kick reliving her earlier days.
Our room faced the pool and had a convenient balcony. The pool area is surprisingly large and well-done. We enjoyed it daily.
Wonderful stay in Pattaya at the Mercure.
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.
The hotel is away from all the "madness" of Pattaya which is only a 2 minute free tuk tuk ride away from the hotel which is located well away from the main roads. The tuk tuk service was available 24 hours a day and always very efficient!
The buffet breakfast is absolutely fantastic with so much choice and would be hard to beat anywhere - eat as much as you like!
The room was fine and we had an extra bed provided in our room for our 5 year old and still found it spacious enough. Bathroom is a little small but adequate.
Pool is definately one of the best features of the hotel; it's very big and has a separate pool for the kids - 2 life guards on duty until 7pm everyday.
I would highly recommend this hotel to singles, couples and families.
Very well kept
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.
The tuk-tuk is available quickly in almost every case, and only takes 1-2 minutes to get you to the main vein of Pattaya's tourist area. Though this might be thought of as a drawback at first, it turns out to be an advantage to keep the boisterous night life from reaching the hotel and your room. The staff was very friendly in calling the tuk-tuk immediately when they saw us.
A cheap, safe, and polished hotel that is worth the price. Having been to less favorable conditions in Korea, Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, and the US, I would put this hotel above the others. Leaving the hotel was the worst part of my trip to Pattaya.
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
Nice place, BEST value in Pattaya
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.
Difference of opinion
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.
This hotel is off the beaten track down a dark windy lane, in view of this the hotel puts on a free taxi (tuk tuk) service to the main street. however dont expect one to turn up at night. i waited 17 minutes for one and in the end ended up walking 5 minutes to the hotel, very scary indeed as local people sleep in trees etc.
Food is served in the hotel but dont expect to receive what u ordered and dont be surprised if you are over charged. the staff are friendly enough but dont like to be confronted with queries. the rooms are modern with air conditioning and some nice views. if someone asked me would i stay in this hotel again, i would reply NO.
im sorry accor hotels but you need to get this property sorted.

Excellent Hotel - Highly Recommended
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.

As we got woken up by an Asian girl knocking on our door in the middle of the night, we had a restless sleep. Dreaming about *****s and pimps robbing us! We got up later than expected. We headed to the ferry terminal, no food in or bellys and being harassed by locals wanting us go by speed boat. We got on the boat that coat only 30B pp A 30min ride later we are on Koh Larn. Just a little island, plenty of sunbeds to choose from we had to go ...
... sorts of orange coloured mouthfuls, with different shapes, tastes and textures, and also some mango slices with sticky rice. Stunning. A little later the bus pulled in to a row of driedfood market lock-up shops with a covered walkway in front.We walked for fifteen minutes having the items on display explained to us. All kinds of dried fish: prawns, squid, larvae, etc.. It was the area market for dried foods.. ...
... I was riding a scooter. I have lived in Thailand for 5 years, I speak reasonable Thai, I have a Thai drivers license, I had 10k baht in cash on me, I had Thai helpers on the outside who know police and were able to plead my case to all levels of police. None of this helped me get processed any faster or dealt with any better. Not that would expect it too – but just as advice for those farang who think they are “special” I have no complaints – I was guilty. ...
... of the world, over
run with big fat dirty Farrang men! We did have some good Italian food thought
and had a good night out but it is just not the place for us. Also the beach is
tiny and dirty with deck chairs crammed on it in rows and it bloody ****** it
down the whole time we were there.
Time to get
the **** out of dodge and head for Koh Chang.
... paid off and I was able to drive and chip well, impressing JK's uncle (well, he was probably just being nice), despite taking my first swing and the entire head flying off the club!
Jk, a golf novice, soon got into the swing of it (!) and was able to hit a 50 yard target with the last ball of the morning, taking only 30 balls to do so!
We would have perhaps stayed longer, but we had to get back to some sight-seeing, after a very relaxing ...
