The Mercure Vientiane Hotel Review
The Mercure Vientiane Hotel, Laos [hotel info] — If you are searching for a taste of the Orient, where you can immerse yourself in the beauty of the land, where the people are incredibly welcoming and absorb the exoticness in the atmosphere, then look no further than the gorgeous land of Laos.
The Indo-Chinese country of Laos may not be the first destination you may come up with, but the rugged and awe-inspiring beauty of this place is simply divine. With many ancient Buddhist and native temples and other historical places to see, along with the many adventure trips you could undertake, Laos is gaining a good reputation as a tourist spot.
The Mercure Vientiane Hotel [hotel reviews] is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Vientiane. The exterior of the hotel could be mistaken for any other hotel the chain creates, but when dusk falls and the lights comes on. It looks as though it’s a hotel standing in the middle of paradise.
The Mercure Vientiane stands in a good convenient location and the grounds surrounding it are well kept. A sculpture stands before the hotel and when night falls, it is lit up, looking simply stunning. The Mekong River offers a touch of charm to the setting and although the hotel is modern in appearance, the designers have given it a touch of local flavor by incorporating a pointed arch to the windows.
There are no shortages of rooms at the Mercure Viantiane. 201 rooms plus seven suites, all designed to make you feel welcomed. The walls are painted in a creamy color that really does remind you of soft whipped cream, and colorful accessories add a touch of exoticness to the room. Each room is given fresh flowers and fruit in the suites and no matter which room you take, it has been decorated with a delicate Laotian flavor.
As with any Mercure hotel, all the mod cons you need can be found here (television, phone, refrigerator, hairdryer, safe etc).
The Mercure Vientiane offers guests to sample the drinks within their three bars and to dine on wonderfully tasty food in their restaurant. The restaurant has a good selection of traditional Lao, Chinese and western dishes on the menu and the bars are well stocked with a variety of beers, wines, spirits, and local beverages.
Leisure and Activities
There are several great leisure activities to be found at the Mercure Vientiane which includes an outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, a gym, tanning salon, tennis courts, and a disco. The hotel also offers a reliable babysitting service and there are several safe play areas for children of all ages.
Business is conducted in style at the Mercure Vientiane. There are several rooms designed for business purposes and the hotel has all of the necessary equipment to hand, along with dedicated, reliable and informative business staff.
The hotel isn’t located in the city center which is good for me since I just normally spend staycations. Mercure Vientiane Hotel is a nice 15min walk to several dining places located by the Mekong River and that also a plus.
