Review of Mercure Padang

Confused on deciding where to stay in Padang, I ended up choosing Mercure Hotel mainly because of its location which is close to our office. The hotel is also a new one, build after the Padang earthquake in 2009. 

A unique lamp hanging on the ceiling welcomes us at the lobby.

Mercure is located near the beach at the heart of the city. The beach doesn't have sands area, instead it is surrounded by restaurants along the beach line.

The room is modern and looks well maintained. It is dominated by pink that made the room very cozy.

I like the huge pool area just in front of the restaurant, Mercure also provide a fitness facility for their guests.

This was the first time I visit Padang, so I could not compare Mercure to any other hotel. However based on my one night stay here, I would recommend Mercure if you are looking for a hotel to stay in Padang.
