I recently stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group with Gate 1 travel. The employees at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful they also made restaurant recommendations and reservations for me. The lobby was clean and offered free wifi as well as two desktop terminals which functioned properly. The lobby also had a bar with a great bartender who also put out delicious snacks at night for the hotel guests. My room was large and clean and the bathroom was very modern and had its own balcony as did my main room. The breakfast buffet was included and well stocked every morning and had pleasant attendants who greeted us every morning with a smile. This location was near many good restaurants and shops. I would stay here again when in the area.
Not 100 percent up to Mercure standard, but still a good deal with its central location, large rooms and nice breakfast. Plenty of nice restaurants arround. Staff okay. Only minus: no wifi in the rooms (didn't think that still exists at such an international four star chain)
