AccorHotels opens Mercure premises beside Bangkok Airport rail link

 The AccorHotels group has just opened its latest property in the Thai capital city of Bangkok. The Mercure Makkasan is a four-star premises and is less than 100 metres from a station on the Bangkok Airport Link.

The hotel boasts a stylish accommodation portfolio comprising 4 executive suites, 18 executive rooms and 158 superior rooms. The executive collection units are on the higher floors and offer commanding views over Bangkok’s skyline.

These also come with separate living rooms and bedrooms as well as free minibars, in-room espresso coffee makers and state-of-the-art media players. The superior rooms also have minibars, although these are not free, in addition to the likes of the latest televisions, rain-showers and wireless internet.

A quirk of the décor at the Mercure Makkasan Hotel is that it features railway themes. This is to reflect the fact that it is beside the Airport Link Railway Station. A State Railway of Thailand station for services from Bangkok Hua Lamphong to Pattaya and the border town of Aranyaprathet is also close by

While the hotel’s décor may be off the wall, its facilities and guest amenities are not. The main guest conveniences are a spacious swimming pool and sunbathing deck, a wine bar and a dining room serving tasty Thai and international specialities.

Hotel industry analysts say the opening of this latest AccorHotels premises adds to the chain’s mid-range choices and brings its tally up to seven in Thailand. The Mercure Makkasan Hotel is five stops, or about 10 minutes, from Suvarnabhumi Airport on the Airport Rail Link.
