Mercure Hotel (Narita, Japan)

4 Case Rating


Location

Hotel is located in the town of Narita. There is a free coach that goes back and forth to the hotel from airport, stopping at both terminals once to twice an hour different times of the day. The hotel is right in the centre of Narita, so bars, restaurants, shops and even the famous temple is within walking distance from hotel.

Room

The room was presented very well with pyjamas, slippers and two pillows on the double bed. It is clean and comfortable mattress. Lighting is adequate and the alarm clock has the ability to turn the main light off as well as control the AC unit. There is a small desk and chair which is good if you need to work on laptop (however the hotel has only cable-no WIFI and charges which means if you have a IPAD your stuffed to get on to the internet). The bathroom was clean with a good working digital toilet, clean bath and shower and adequate amenities of toothpaste, toothbrush and shaving kit. The TV has a good amount of Japanese channels but only one english option which is the BBC news 24. There is a option to purchase video but its just what is on the screen and non interactive (Shawshank redemptions and two adult channels) which for 1000yen was not worth it but you can preview for like 5 minutes. The view of the window was off Narita and overall was basic but comfortable room with the location being the best part.

Facilities

The hotel has a bar, a coffee-shop (which has a computer with access to internet again chargeable for every 15 minutes) and a restaurant where breakfast commences. There are two building in which the other apparently has a swimming pool and fitness centre but did not see. Breakfast in the morning is pretty good, with a decent selection of buffet food. The bread is very fresh and soft. There is alot of japanese options but for westerners there is scrambled egg, sausages and omelet.

Staff

Very hospitable and polite, helpful. Check-in and check-out very efficient and smooth. Coach to airport was full during check-out so they kindly organised a taxi which was free.

Overall fairly comfortable stay for one night and Narita is worth exploring, the temple is about a 15 minutes walk and you will need about an hour there because it is very impressive and idyllic. Showing beautiful Japanese gardens and old historical temple buildings. There are also decent small bars and restaurants everywhere which appears to have lots of air crews hanging out. If you wish to go Tokyo, the train stations is about a 2 minute walk and Tokyo take 1hr to 1.5hrs to get to.
ADVICE for international travellers. If you need to get cash out from an ATM and do not have a JAPAN card then get it out at airport or Aeon Mall (15 minutes drive away). No cash machine in Narita takes international cards and does not have english translation function on them.
