Review Mercure Hotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 24

Location, location, location.  That was the first thing that attracted me to the Mercure Hotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 24.

The second was Vue – the rooftop bar with as the name suggests one of the best views over Bangkok. I just love rooftop bars when visiting cities. I enjoy seeing the city from up high whilst enjoying a cold beverage or two.  Another plus for Vue is the swimming pool adjacent to the bar adding to a very chilled vibe!

The third thing was that the Mercure Bangkok is part of the Accor Group which I am a member of their Accor Live Limitless program. With over 5100 hotels in 100 countries, there are always hotels that I can book and earn points for during my stay. With great reviews from previous guests, I needed to check it out myself.

Over the last decade, we have used Bangkok as a destination that we base ourselves for a few days to a month and we always choose the Sukhumvit area. The area is within easy reach from both Bangkok Airports – Suvarnabhumi (BKK) 24 km away and Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) 26 km away.

Location of the Mercure Bangkok Sukhumvit 24

The Mercure Bangkok is located at 5, 1 Sukhumvit Soi 24 Khlong Tan, Khlong Toei.

The BTS Station Phrom Phong is located 100m away and the luxury shopping centre EmQuartier is a 5-minute walk.  Terminal 21 is within easy reach too with either a 2o minute walk or 2 minute ride on the BTS from Phrom Phong to Asok.

Our favourite street-side restaurant Im Chan located at Sukhumvit 37 Alley has great cheap Thai food.  We have been eating there since 2013 when we first came across it when exploring Sukhumvit.

What impressed me on arrival at the hotel is the expanse of lush green lawn fronting the private main entrance/driveway.  Soi 24 is a busy area and to have so much greenery it is like entering your own private oasis.

The Mercure’s sister hotel The Ibis (part of the Accor Group too) is located to the left of the main entrance and there is a small 7/11 store to the right.

Reception area Mercure Bangkok Sukhumvit 24

As you enter the reception, the well-placed and well-designed Deli Bar is to the left and that leads into the Ibis Reception. The Concierge Desk is located to your right. You then pass into the Reception Desk to your left and a colourful funky seating area is located to the right. I really do love bright and welcoming reception areas, especially after a long flight.

If you are an Accor member you can check in online prior to arrival to help speed up your check-in process as well as your check-out process.

The Mercure Bangkok Sukhumvit has 201 well-appointed rooms located over 9 floors from 20th – 29th. The Mercure hotel caters well to business and leisure travellers.

After a speedy check-in and having got my key I headed to my room on the 27th floor.  Once again I was impressed with the bright and cheerful decor as I opened the door and was immediately drawn to the large windows with views over Bangkok at night.

The bathroom had a large glass window that overlooked the bedroom area and if you didn’t want to close the curtain you could shower whilst enjoying the views of Bangkok.

Funky wallpaper that lined the wall behind the mini bar and the open wardrobe added another dimension to the room – making it seem larger. A safe as well as an ironing board and iron was located there.

A kettle was provided with tea and coffee and complimentary bottles of water.  The mini-bar was stocked with all the goodies one would want during your stay.

A welcome letter with complimentary snacks was provided.

Apart from the table and chair there was a funky yellow sofa chair with a footstool located perfectly for putting your feet up after a day of sightseeing in view of the TV.  As I had some work to do there were power points located close to the desk for charging all of my equipment.

The king-size bed was comfy and the sheets luxurious, perfect for a good night’s sleep.

The bathroom was spacious and luxury toiletries were provided.
