[HOTEL] Mercure Pontianak – Deluxe Room

October 6th, 2017 – October 8th, 2017.

Finally, we went back to Pontianak again. Woohoo! We always went to Singkawang first, then spent time in Pontianak. This time, I wanted to stay 2 nights. Well, I used to stay around Gajah Mada street, but this time I wanted to try another area. We chose to stay at Mercure Pontianak. And it was really good, since it’s very near Ayani Megamall.

With its spacious 265 rooms in a contemporary and relaxing design, Mercure Pontianak Hotel in West Kalimantan has set a of new standards for services, style and comfort. A perfect location for business and the only Accor hotel on Equator. For business travelers in need of a place for seminars, conferences, weddings and exhibitions than can accommodate up to 600 participants, modern decorated ballroom and smaller meeting rooms with complete audio visual equipment are available. The hotel has a strategic location, very close to the business centre, the State/Provincial Governor Office, Museum of West Kalimantan, Kapuas River, Equator Monument and adjacent with the biggest shopping mall complex in town, Ayani Megamall.

Deluxe Room with 1 King-Size Bed

Larger than superior with minimalist style with pool city view, comfortable king-size bed, 32″ LCD TV, satelite TV with selected 40 international TV channel, free unlimited Internet access, laptop-size safety box and ensuite bathroom.

At first, they gave us connecting rooms, but it’s facing directly to the university next door that was holding a music event. We asked for another rooms then. We experienced a room like that, and couldn’t sleep at night. That’s why we asked them to move us to another one. Thank goodness, they still had rooms for us, with different angle. It’s comfortable room, but too bad, I didn’t have any electric plugs on my bed side. So I had to sit on the table while working on my macbook. *sobbing*

BREAKFAST

EBONY RESTAURANT

A modern and contemporary design with a stunning open kitchen serving a selection of Asian, Western, and authentic Indonesian cuisine where guests can experience a ‘live’ culinary act.

It was such a busy hotel. I couldn’t take photos of the food since it was almost gone. It was not interesting to be photographed. And the restaurant was too crowded. I couldn’t take photos of the place. Good thing I still could take the environment of the restaurant before checked-out.

Thank you Mercure Pontianak for the 2 great nights.
