The Prepayment Charges

Customer review rating 1.5/5

W. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Hi Mercure, by mistake I did a double booking on my stay at Mercure at 18/04/22. I cancelled my double booking immediately and was before the 7 days cancellation. Mercure did refund me but however the credit card company refunded me lesser due credit admin charges. This is not fair for overseas card holders like me. My question is why does Mercure need to charge by credit card upfront even thought i booked way in advance before the 7 days cancellation policy. This is incur additional charges for me if I need to change or rebook any hotels in the meantime.

Dear Tan W., First and foremost, we would like to thank you for bringing to our attention your experience in our hotel. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations, we would like to express our sincerest apologies. Regarding your request, I confirm that the debit is done automatically once the reservation has been made. Indeed according to the conditions policies, you have the possibility of canceling your reservation up to 7 days before. However, by choosing this rate you have a discount by agreeing to pay now. If the payment is refused, the reservation will be canceled automatically. For next time, to avoid charges from the credit you have to book a flexible rate, in order to pay directly at the hotel. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Best regards, Julien GIROST Front Office Manager

The hotel was as expected; well located, clean, functional etc. The welcome was not so much; it's hard to tell the difference between someone playing on their laptop with their earphones in, and the reception desk. I would have liked to have bought a coffee at the corner counter too, but nobody seemed much interested in paying attention so I just left it and went out for one.

Shocking that the windows are from the 70s - no energy saving possible and loud

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Patrick Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

Accomodation is fine. The team is friendly. But it is shocking that the windows are so badly closing: The quality is from the 1970s. Energy consumption of the building must be therefore high. Due to the bad window quality, the noise level from the street is high which makes a stay definitely not comfortable.

Hello, We would like to thank you for taking the time to share your experience on your recent stay at Mercure Gare de Lyon TGV. We are sincerely sorry to hear that you have been disappointed by your stay and we wish to apologize for the noice. Indeed, the location of our hotel is very central in the capital, nest to the Gare de Lyon station. This is a definite advantage for getting around Paris easily, but this location generates some noise from Parisian activity. For your next stay, do not hesitate to ask us for a room on the station side view and on a high floor, which are a little quieter. We would like to thank you for your review and still hope we will have the chance to welcome you back soon. Best regards, Julien GIROST Front Office Manager

Very friendly staff who made sure I had my free drink E. though it was a bit later, very quiet and the room offered a nice view on the famous station clock. Good use of my sleeping time and money! A little good to great tip, a coffee station for guest to leave with some takeaway before heading to the TGV would be great.

Always a pleasure to visit Mercure in Gare de Lyon!

Hotel was closed but would not give me a refund

Bob H TripAdvisor review

We were hoping to stay here as we have before - the location is perfect. However, I tried to cancel and they said my booking was non refundable. Then they told me they were closed anyway! I thought that was a bit of a cheek - what if I had showed up and they were closed? Surely they have broken the contract?

Excellent location if travelling by train

Christine064 TripAdvisor review

We chose this hotel primarily for its location right next to Gare de Lyons station where we were catching a train to Barcelona the next morning. It is literally next door. It was pouring with rain and we didn’t even get wet. The hotel was fine for a one night stop. Staff friendly and efficient Everything very clean. Excellent choice for breakfast including cooked. Rooms small but not unexpectedly so and beds huge. We were travelling with friends and they gave us adjacent rooms as we had requested. Only suggestion is to tell guests you need to use the key card when inside the lift as we made idiots of ourselves pressing the button then getting out when it didn’t work thinking it was out of order until another guest told us.

Dear Christine064? We are delighted to read that you had an excellent stay and enjoyed your visit at our hotel. It is always encouraging to learn that guests are satisfied with our service as it is what we strive for every day. We are sorry for the little problem you had in the lift. Indeed, you need to swipe your keycard to get the lift works, you have a sign to indicated it just below the lift buttons. Hope to see you soon. Le Mercure Paris Gare de Lyon TGV.
