AccorHotels Opens Mercure Hoi An Royal, Offering Boutique Comfort And Quality In UNESCO World Heritage Site
AccorHotels, the largest operator of international hotels in Vietnam and Asia Pacific, is pleased to announce the opening of Mercure Hoi An Royal, its sixth hotel in Central Vietnam and second hotel in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An. Set in the heart of town, the newly refurbished 96-room boutique hotel combines cultural authenticity with a full range of facilities and high-standard services designed to appeal to the increasing number of foreign-tourists and growing MICE market. Centrally located and only 45 minutes from Danang International Airport, the hotel is near Hoi An Ancient Town and Cua Dai beach, and walking distance to Thu Bon River, the historic Japanese Bridge, and local markets and tailors.
Mr. Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and the Philippines says, “Hoi An has always been a must-go destination for both local and international travellers. Cultural enthusiasts are unable to resist its nostalgic old streets, and heritage as a 600-year old trading port and now as a haven for artists and galleries. The opening of Mercure Hoi An in this historic town adds to the growing network of AccorHotels’ mid-scale brand that embodies high service standards and warmth.” Mr. Basset explains that the hotel will also cater to the many tourists visiting the 26 kilometer stretch of sandy beaches between Hoi An and Danang.
The hotel offers 42 Standard rooms, 40 Superior rooms, and 14 Junior suites. The elegant interiors exhibit traditional flower motifs and vivid local colours with an air of vintage chic. The luxury Junior suites have private terraces with direct access to the hotel’s brand new swimming pool and garden. Each spacious room features tea and coffee making facilities, a safe, a large bathroom, a balcony, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and complimentary Wi-Fi internet access.
Cluster General Manager Mr. Tangi Le Grand says “Mercure Hoi An Royal was designed in a boutique style that blends in perfectly with the local ambiance. Following its refurbishment, the hotel looks forward to welcoming corporate and leisure travellers seeking the high comfort, service and quality offerings of the Mercure brand.”
Among other key facilities, the Royal Restaurant offers all-day buffet-style and à la carte dining with international cuisine, while the Pool Bar is an ideal place to unwind with its selection of cocktails, coffee, tea, and tasty snacks served all day.
To meet the demand for meetings and conferences, the hotel boasts a fully equipped function room ideal for private and corporate functions. Its meeting facilities can accommodate up to 25 guests for conferences or cocktail receptions as well as numerous business needs.
Hoi An is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Ancient Town is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port, dating from the 15th to the 19th century. Formerly an important trading port, today the city is popular with tourists for its historic streetscapes, grand architecture, pretty river and thriving arts and dining scene, as well as its proximity to other cultural attractions including My Son and My Khe Beach. Hoi An is 30 kilometres from Danang International Airport, while Danang is an hour’s flight from Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City.
