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

Accor master lounge thread (not Sofitel)

This is one of two Accor lounge threads. The other thread is exclusively for Sofitel lounges, this one is for "lounges in all Accor hotels except Sofitel".

Please breathe life into the thread by adding content. You can also help maintain the wikipost as a single quick reference.

Among the things that will interest people are:

Which hotels have lounges?

Reports on the lounges, including size, style, food and drink offerings, other facilities, service, location within the hotel, view.

Whether access is granted to Platinum Le Club members who have not booked Club rooms or equivalent (including lounge access granted together with room upgrades).

Not in the least. This is precisely what I was hoping for: get up in the morning and see that the thread has started to take shape while I slept.

True up to a point, boss. I'd say that "normal" posts still have their place -- for detailed reviews, for links and possibly even photos (just don't start taking them while I'm in the lounge...), for reports of closures or new lounges in the pipeline. A "normal" post also lets thread subscribers know that there's something new. Finally, if everybody added everything to the wiki it would get rather long.

I'm guessing that we'll end up with a lounge list in the wiki, with links to hotel websites and/or FT posts with more details. We can also edit the first and second posts occasionally, in order to keep the wiki to a manageable length. My initial idea was that post 2 could summarise reports on lounge access being granted (or denied) to Platinum members. Time will tell whether it makes most sense to order that information by brand or by continent/country.

Added a first Grand Mercure Lounge -Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore.

I think AccorHotels really have a game-changer here, as it has a good range of mid-upper tiers hotels in lots of areas, and this update of their Elite benefits will draw in fresh loyalty.

Let's share more of these previously unknown mid-upper range hotels with lounges and give some reviews on their elite recognition consistency.

Hi ZenWorld, did you book a room with Lounge benefit or was it granted to you via upgrade/status?

Novotel Seoul Ambassador

NOTE : Some of the information in this post are outdated. See updated information in post #105 (august 2015) of this thread. Direct link :
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/25311354-post105.html

There is a Premier lounge on the 16th floor. I had booked a room without club access but access was kindly granted as part of the new benefits for platinums.

The lounge is not very large, but has some pleasant views on the city and close buildings. You can check-in and check-out in the lounge.
Few comfortable seatings (sofa), the majority being tables and chairs.
There is a meeting room that you can book for 2hrs max.
Breakfast is not very sophisticated but more than sufficient for me (usual bread, pastries + bacon, eggs and some warm Asian food).
Complimentary drinks are served from 6 to 8:30 pm. Minimal offer : soft drinks, one red wine and one white wine, and a few strong alcohol drinks (vodka, gin). No cocktails. Some canapés and of course peanuts, chips, etc.
Great staff, very courteous and always ready to help and to serve customers.

So overall, of course not as nice a Sofitel club lounge, but not bad at all for a Novotel

Accor master lounge thread (not Sofitel)

Starflyergold/IHM any possibility to make this and the sofitel club thread as stickies? I see both as useful and considering there are wikis in them as a reference, they should stay somewhere near the top?

Ideally I would wish to avoid a long list of stickies in the forum as it pushes active threads further down the line but I'm open to views.

Maybe one sticky which lists key threads such as the lounge threads, the Sofitel review "directory" one and more?

No point in asking IHM , as neither he nor IMH can stickificate a thread, but luckily the boss has already weighed in:

Yes please! (Or just add the links to the FAQ thread?)

Sorry!
I'm open for anything... Just would be a shame to see them disappearing off the front page.
Agree to both suggestions...
