INDONESIA
  • Novotel Mangga Dua Jakarta - Premier Lounge 8th floor - Large lounge with view of the centre courtyard with pool.
  • Pullman Jakarta Central Park - Executive Lounge 12th Floor - somewhat "cold" layout.
  • Novotel Semarang - I forgot which floor it was but the size is moderate. It serves breakfast and evening cocktails. No views but great hospitality by the GR staffs. I was allowed early check-in and had breakfast there eventhough my breakfast actually starting from the next day. As other Accor hotels in Indonesia, no juices or soft drinks provided outside the evening cocktails hours.
  • Novotel Bandung - The premier floor is located on the 3rd floor. The lounge is quite big and open layout. They serve breakfast and Afternoon Hi-Tea (that's they called for evening cocktails). Unfortunately no view at all.
  • Novotel Jakarta Gajah Mada - Executive Lounge located in 22F. Friendly staff and nice choice meals are available.
  • Novotel Tangerang - Premier lounge on top floor (20). Nice view over the surrounding area with CGK airport in the distance. Serves breakfast and some afternoon finger food. Lounge was very busy during my stay, was hard to get a seat and even a bite to eat/drink.
  • Grand Angkasa Medan - Lounge on the top floor. Not in use. Hotel will be completely refurbished by mid 2015.

CHINA
  • Pullman Shanghai Skyway - Currently located on the 51st floor in the former Fendi-themed Presidential Suite. Great views. May be moved once renovations are complete.
  • Pullman Shanghai Jing'an - (formerlyGrand Mercure Shanghai Central aka Zhongya) - Takes up the entire 27th floor, views to both sides from different rooms, but Zhabei is not that much to look at. Rather good breakfast with hot items on circulation and staple but varied cold items. "Happy hour" with ample food options and some alcohol only between 18:00-20:00. Soft drinks 6:30-22:00, otherwise fridges padlocked (!) and coffee / tea machine turned off. Adjacent large boardroom can be booked for up to 2h for free, except for 9:30-10:30 when the hotel's management meet there. Very slow and problematic iMacs with colour printer, but the computer room has a nice view. Lounge can get crowded when hotel is full.
  • Pullman Wuxi - Top floor. View of 'nothing much', but one of the best lounges gilbertaue has seen. Unfortunately occupancy is so low that they don't serve breakfast here. Evening canape has a great variety and tastes good too.
  • Pullman Beijing West Wanda - Top floor. Amazing view to West Beijing area with glass all over the lounge. Not crowded; eventhough the hotel was 96% when I was there. Personally, one of my favorite lounge in Accor properties. There were free soft drinks throughout the day.
  • Novotel Beijing Xin Qiao - 15th floor. With a view to the main street of Chongwenmen; which is nothing to see. The lounge is not small actually, but since the layout quite strange and lounge was separated into two or three so it feels quite small.
  • Grand Mercure Beijing Central. Disappointing lounge. Breakfast available in the lounge or in the restaurant. Coffee, tea and soft drinks available all day. Cocktail hour last two hours. Wine, spirits, beer and soft drinks available. Canapé available during this time. The lounge service is poor compared to most Accor lounges. Even to the extent that there was no sparkling water left and when I enquirer they said "sold out". My request for still water was ignored. Two computers and printers are available for use along with a meeting room.
  • Novotel Beijing Peace: 19th floor, good views over Beijing, nice service and good food offering. Review here.
  • Pullman Oceanview Sanya Bay - top floor. Excellent service with good sea/pool views. Breakfast, afternoon tea, and canapes served. Access via swipe card.
  • Novotel Suzhou - Great lounge if you like longer time with alcoholic drinks. Breakfast not currently served as they are modifying the lounge to hold more dishes for breakfast after getting complaints but can go downstairs to main restaurant. Afternoon snacks, soft drinks during these hours. Canapes from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, alcoholic drinks from 5:30pm- 10:30pm. No view apart from the other side of the hotel across a courtyard.
  • Grand Mercure Shenzhen Oriental Ginza - 25th floor next to the Japanese restaurant. Breakfast is served in the Japanese restaurant or out on the deck has seating. Views of Shenzhen bay. Soft drinks available all day and from platinum members can be taken back to the room free of charge. Afternoon tea treats. 2hr happy hour with plenty of food for even a small dinner. Sushi, 6/7 hot dishes or hot snacks. Salads and other cold bits.
  • Pullman Xiamen Powerlong - A decent lounge with good breakfast options or can eat in restaurant 1st floor, Soft drinks all day. Usual afternoon tea cakes, Evening canapes and Alcohol. Nice view of the inlet.
  • Pullman Hong Kong - Very nice full service lounge. All Platinum members have access. See Pullman Hong Kong and a review with pics here
  • Novotel Hong Kong Century - According to dfs24 in February 2014 the lounge is small, and the spread also small, but the quality of food is above average. See pictures here
  • Novotel Hong Kong Nathan Road Kowloon. Very small lounge, and has a "good and detailed" view of surrounding buildings. Breakfast selection is small - you'll do much better in the restaurant with the masses unless you want a really quiet place.
  • Novotel Hong Kong Citygate - Top floor. Has a good (just good) view to Ngong Ping Cable Car and nearby mountains. Lot of variety of finger foods and drinks. Breakfast is served on 06:30 - 10:00; Afternoon Tea 14:30-17:00, and Evening cocktails 18:00-20:00. Platinum members will get guaranteed access to Lounge regardless room type of their bookings

same as in Novotel Seoul Ambassador Doksan. No breakfast in the club lounge for around 2 years. Other offerings seem to be similar as in Gangnam. Thanks for the report, Goldorak!
Offering is actually pretty poor if compared to Novotel Singapore or Novotel Ploenchit in Bangkok

Mercure Istanbul Topkapi has an executive lounge, I wasn't able to visit it during my stay as my partner booked the room and was gold, they didn't let us use it although I was platinum (not that I was expecting them to, I asked just in case).

Indonesia - Grand Mercure Jakarta Harmoni:

There is definitely no premier or executive lounge at this hotel. The lounge on the top floor is actually a bar with paid beverages. Also, it is all-smoking.

So that top floor bar/restaurant is already open now? Good thing - I was curious to check it out but it was still closed.
And no, this hotel doesn't have executive lounge.

Sure, I guess anybody can check it out, since it's just a regular bar.

You probably didn't miss much. We stayed there in June and did get Lounge access but at the time it was a meeting room with a mini-fridge, coffee machine and a couple of snacks in a heater; I think we were the only room using it though.

When they get the hotel finished, if they haven't already, I'm sure the lounge will be more impressive

745-8? is this a secret code?

during my last stay there was nothing to admire from the balcony. Due to the Indonesian haze you could not even see the Marina Bay Sands building (the lizard sitting on 3 towers)

Nothing has changed since June.

Soft drinks in mini-fridge, coffee machine and a couple of snacks in a heater.

IMO this should be removed from list of lounges.

among Novotel lounges it is certainly over average! They offer excellent French cheese, sandwiches, burgers or samosas, cold snacks as well, beer, white and red wine, other alcoholic beverage
