Mercure Now Open near Makkasan Station in Bangkok

Renowned for their local charm and personality, the newly opened Mercure Bangkok Makkasan located in Bangkok’s city centre features 180 modern rooms and suites. With direct access to Bangkok Airport Link Makkasan station and Petchburi MRT station, the hotel offers travellers convenience and accessibility to the city’s attraction and malls located within the precinct.

Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia, says that “Mercure offers an authentic experience that is rooted in the local surroundings and Mercure Bangkok Makkasan is located in the area’s century-old railway heritage where Makkasan was the main depot for the State Railways of Thailand since 1910. It has since become a major rapid transit hub serving the Airport Link and MRT today. The latest opening of Mercure Bangkok Makkasan adds to the growing network of mid-scale brands which currently stands at seven with another three more new hotels opening in Bangkok and Pattaya within the next two years.”

Featuring 158 Superior Rooms, 18 Executive Rooms and four Executive suites designed with unique train travel inspired themes, guests can ease with comfort in a relaxing ambience after a long flight.   Rooms are equipped with a Smart TV, an in-room safe, minibar, rain shower, free WiFi and great views of Bangkok’s city centre, particularly from the Executive Rooms and Suites on the uppermost floors. The 25sqm Executive Rooms and 45sqm Executive Suites feature a separate living room with complementary minibar, espresso machine, iPod dock and BOSE Bluetooth speakers.

For leisure activities, the outdoor pool and fitness center offer guest a great work out area to sweat it out after a long day.  For business meetings and corporate events, the hotel features three floor to ceiling meeting rooms with natural light. Guest can also look forward to relishing authentic Thai and international cuisine at The Station, an all-day-dining restaurant that features live cooking stations with chefs preparing a daily selection of a-la-minute dishes.

For an evening wind down, M Wine lounge offers an extensive selection of wines, cocktails and gourmet food while The Pool Bar serves a choice of refreshing juices and light snacks in a garden setting with unobstructed views of downtown Bangkok.
