The Mercure is a newer structure. We had an excellent experience. The staff at registration was welcoming, friendly, and helpful in English. The server in the bar for our complimentary glasses of Pino Grigio was quiet but friendly. The room was reasonably spacious and completely up-to-date.
The location has two strong merits: the Folkwang Museum is next door and the HBf is about five blocks away. One potential short-coming for travelers without a vehicle is the smaller number of nearby restaurants. Free checking of our bags after checkout while we visited the museum was a bonus that confirmed the Mercure's gracious spirit.
