Mercure Liverpool Atlantic Tower Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I bought the biggest room available .. had to get an upgrade so that I could get a WINDOW that opened up. Door was shaky, due to construction I was told, however there was no construction... AC worked .... the nice thing was the bar on top, but going outside to the main clubbing spots at least had a life. Overall, I want a QUALITY American room, I paid $180 a night ... I see that price does not always account for quality. Find a Hilton or Sheraton and get the dimensions on a LARGE room.

Stayed at the Thistle for The Open golf championship. Great location! Short walk to the waterfront, to museums, to Beatles spots, restaurants and the train station. Room was very spacious and comfortably appointed. Lovely staff, very helpful.

good hotel for the money. clean and close to all. good wifi. big and nice room.

My wife and I traveled to England to visit her family over the Christmas holiday. Within our 14 day visit, we booked a hotel in Liverpool for a special night out for just the two of us as we figured we would need a break from staying at my mother-in-law’s house as its usually quite a busy place and the bed usually hurts our backs. We planned on seeing a show at the Royal Court Theater in Liverpool anyhow and decided if we found a reasonably priced hotel, we would book it. We wanted to find a hotel that was reasonably priced, but also within a walkable location to the main attractions- Albert Docks, Liverpool 1 and of course, the Theater. After doing some research online, we came across Atlantic Tower Hotel. In other reviews, we had read that it had received an overall 4.7 Stars by consumers for great location, good price point, and clean room. At the price we were offered the room, it seemed like a great deal, so we opted to book a room at this hotel. Once we arrived at this hotel, we were greeted by friendly staff. You could tell the hotel was a little bit older, but it seemed to be well maintained. When we checked in, we were told our room was on the 10th floor. When we found our room, we noticed it was a bit smaller than other rooms we had stayed in, but the bed was inviting, things were clean and the room- even with natural lighting- was well lit even though our room overlooked an office building. We put our stuff away and ventured into the city for the evening. It wasn’t until we got back in from the show that we really spent any time in the room. When we got back to the hotel, the overall place was pretty quiet. We took the elevator to our room and sat down on the bed. At this point, it was 10pm. Upon settling in, we realized we had some noisy neighbors. At first it was no big deal as we figured they would settle in as well, but whereas the walls were paper thin, we heard EVERY conversation they had, every door slam, every time the toilet flushed or brushed their teeth (which seemed to be very often). After a hot shower, we settled into bed. This was immediately disappointing as the bed was very uncomfortable…like worse than the one we’ve been staying on. Additionally, it was two twin beds that had been put together and there was a huge lump in the middle of the bed where the mattresses met. We made it through the night, until 7am when housekeeping started to deliver breakfasts to other guests and cleaning rooms. The housekeepers were hardly quiet complaining about other guests in other rooms. They were in the hallways banging around, yelling to each other and began vacuuming as early as 8am. Even if the bed was comfortable, this made sleeping in impossible. When we went to check out, the staff assisting us didnt seem to care whatsoever not even asking how are stay was, or even using basic courtesy to thank us for staying or wish us a good day. Long story short, if we wanted to sleep on an uncomfortable bed and be woken up at 7am, we would’ve saved the money and made the trek back across the river to my mother in laws. Aside from the location and the nice front desk staff at check in, be prepared for medicocracy at its finest.

Hotel was perfectly located - close to Matthews Street and everything you want to go to. Room was perfect, maybe a little small, but clean and nice. Staff was amazingly nice and helpful. The restaurant situation was a little strange - there were menus all over the place, but that menu was not available in their restaurant?? Internet and breakfast at 10 pounds each per day were probably over priced.

Stayed two nights. Room was clean and spacious. Both nights listened to noisy neighbors (different people/language) in adjoining room. Buffet breakfast (10 pounds extra per day) was excellent, not sure of price with exchange rate. Only complaint for this and many higher end hotels is they charge for using their internet computer (several hotels I stayed at didn't charge at all for this service), and they charge for using their in-room phone even though it is billed to a calling card. Again, several places I stayed at in Europe didn't charge for phone calls if you billed it to a calling card. Otherwise, no real complaints. Especially good location for Albert Dock where the Beatles Story museum and the Magical Mystery Tour begins. Not opposed to staying there again.

The Atlantic Tower by Thistle was a great surprise in that it really feels like you are in a ship and, if you are lucky enough, has a nice view of the river and the 'spooky' looking church and Customs Building. The room was very comfortable. The ONLY problem was with the Restaurant ... and at that may not be a real 'problem'. When we entered the restaurant for a late snadk the person greeting us would NOT let us enter the restaurant without first going to the bar first. There they took our names and we waited (after buying a drink) until our names were called. When we got to the restaurant itself, the feeling was that it was old (but not classily old) and somewhat not so clean. The menu was very restricted and the food was decidedly unremarkable. All that being said, we would still stay in this hotel again.
