The first Mercure hotel opens in Bratislava
Tuesday 12, October 2010
The first Mercure hotel in Slovakia features modern color schemes, sophisticated interiors, a white and yellow facade, cozy rooms and pop-art designs. This four star establishment is located in the center of the capital Bratislava and offers 175 ultra modern rooms including 11 suites.
The hotel’s designers have used a subtle play on transparency (bathrooms, lounge area and open space restaurants) to create the hotel’s unique style. Soft lighting and bright colors lend each of hotel’s spaces their own atmosphere of relaxation and well-being.
The hotel has been designed to cater for all the needs of the 21st century traveler: Privilege rooms include the international press and Brazilian coffee, private lounges are accessible 24-hours a day for relaxing moments and small business meetings and the hotel also has conference rooms that can accommodate up to 120 people.
A visual and tasty experience
The hotel also offers guests a culinary adventure by reinventing traditional Slovak food with an international touch. Ladislav Olcsvary, the hotel’s General Manager explains that “the chef will be serving a menu combining traditional local cuisine with the latest culinary tastes from all over the world.” Guests will be able to prolong the adventure by sampling Slovak regional wines from the Grands Vins Mercure selection.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
