I stayed at Mercure Bangkok Siam for 2 nights.
Check - in & Check out
I got checked in pretty fast, and the check out was also very efficient. Front desk reception staff are helpful and speaks English reasonably well.
I have requested for a high floor room, but since their room starts on level 18 (I was put on 19th) most of their room would have been high floors (would have been great if it was higher though). Their rooms are clean, and as one of the reviewers previously said, the room is a little dark. I personally do not like the mist shower head in the bathroom as I prefer strong pressure for the shower. The sofa-bed beside the window is quite a nice addition, and a great alternative to sitting on the bed. One minor issue I had when ordering room service, the table is affixed to the wall. So I am unable to watch the television while enjoying my food. (Room service was decent, nothing special though)
I did not use the pool, but did went up (29th floor) to take a look. Nice view, just that it is a little small.
The best thing about Mercure Siam is its location. 5 mins walk to MBK, Discovery Siam or Siam Paragon. 7 -11 to the left of the hotel and a tailor to the right (not sure if they are good/bad). It is also right beside the BTS (subway/metro) station.
The breakfast was average. The café at level 8 was not too big, but the spread was not the best. They have the basic thai food and western food + bread and stuff. The egg station chef was always the busiest person around. (always got to queue for your eggs).
It was a nice experience staying at Mercure Siam, and will definitely consider staying here again. (if we get the same rates again, especially). Good value of money. Only slight problem is, as the lobby is situated at level 9, there are no staff at the ground level to assist the guest. They do have a counter there, but I only see them half the time I pass the ground level.However, one of their staff did help me get a taxi from the hotel to airport even though it was on a flat fee (as opposed to their policy of only getting metered taxi). Nonetheless, I would recommend this hotel.
