The first Mercure hotel in Dubai has opened its doors.

Holidaymakers booking flights to Dubai can now choose to stay in a new Mercure hotel that has opened in the emirate.

Accor, which is one of the leading hotel operators across the Middle East, is seeking to expand its Mercure brand in the region and has opened the Mercure Gold Hotel in Dubai.

The four-star hotel has 184 rooms and is situated close to the popular districts of Sheikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah Beach Road.

It is also close the state’s business district, which may appeal to those looking for somewhere to stay due to work commitments.

Christophe Landais, managing director of Accor Middle East, said: “We are delighted to add the franchised Mercure Gold Hotel Al Mina Road Dubai to our network … which is also our first Accor hotel to open in 2012.”

Travellers on flights to Dubai could also expect exceptional customer service at their hotel, as a receptionist in the emirate was recently named as the best in the world.
