Accor launches Hanoi’s first new international 4-star hotel for over a decade
The Mercure, which boasts a classical French-colonial style façade and a contemporary interior design, is located in the heart of the city center, close to the Old Quarter precinct and opposite Hanoi’s historic central railway station (‘la gare’ is French for train station), which links the city to other major cities in Vietnam including the popular northern destinations of Lao Cai and Sapa.
The hotel is also within reach of other tourist attractions such the Temple of Literature (Van Mieu), Hoan Kiem lake, and Hanoi Opera House.
In celebration of its grand opening, Mercure La Gare is offering a special launch promotion with room rates starting from USD75++. Bookings – Australia 1300 65 65 65; New Zealand: 0800 44 44 22; or www.mercure.com
Patrick Basset, Accor’s Vice President Vietnam, "Vietnam has seen some phenomenal growth and development in the recent years, it deserves a high quality mid scale accommodation like the Mercure Hanoi La Gare." Mr Basset adds, "We are proud to introduce the Mercure brand in Vietnam and show both leisure and business travelers why we are known globally for delivering comfort, service quality and hospitality."
The opening of the Mercure in Hanoi will be followed by the opening in October of Mercure Hue Gerbera in the UNESCO heritage city of Hue.
