BANGKOK, THAILAND — Accor has announced the launch of a dual branded Mercure & ibis hotel, which will open on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Soi 24 on 1st December 2019.
 
Situated in the capital’s central business district, guests will enjoy convenient access to a diverse range of restaurants, vibrant entertainment options and the very best shopping malls. The Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station is just 100 metres away, ensuring swift connections to the city’s iconic cultural attractions as well as Suvarnabhumi and Don Meuang international airports.
 
Sukhumvit is the longest street in Thailand, with numerous adjacent 'sois' (sub-streets) where visitors can explore plush shopping malls, delectable dining and thrilling nightlife offerings. The trendy Phrom Phong district is filled with an excellent collection of restaurants, eclectic bars, creative cafes and hip clubs which give the area a distinctly contemporary, cosmopolitan essence enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
 
“We are excited to partner with The Erawan Group to launch this dual-branded property in Bangkok. The combination of our Mercure and ibis brands will ensure guests can choose between one of the world’s largest midscale brands and the most recognised economy brand, offering an unbeatable price to fun ratio,” said Mr. Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer, Accor Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
 
Mercure Bangkok Sukhumvit 24 will feature 201 rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant, rooftop swimming pool, fitness centre and meeting facilities, complemented by the brand’s authentic, locally-inspired service. Guests staying on the executive floor will enjoy privilege access to the Executive Lounge for complimentary refreshments throughout the day.
 
ibis Bangkok Sukhumvit 24 has 300 rooms, boasting a vibrant atmosphere and convenient amenities. The hotel will offer the ibis ‘Mission 15’ promise, which provides guests with prompt service and support by the hotel team within 15 minutes at any time during their stay.
 
”We are pleased to introduce our third dual-branded hotel concept in Bangkok in partnership with Accor. The 2-in-1 hotel concept offers our guests a superb choice between Mercure, a renowned midscale brand where business and leisure guests can experience local stories, and ibis, a popular economy brand aimed at today’s budget-savvy and trendy travellers, in one of the city’s most exciting districts,” said Mr. Youssef Elkhomri, Senior Vice President – Hotel Operations, The Erawan Group
