“Good base for exploring Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This hotel was well placed for exploring Berlin and also close to the Christmas Market. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed the sauna which was again spotlessly clean! The breakfast was magnificent! I would use this hotel again.

When we booked this hotel we didn't realise that is was situated so close to checkpoint charlie. This was very handy for us as we only had to walk up one block and then we could catch the tour bus.
The room that we were given was a lovely room with two separate rooms both with queen size beds and a nice big bathroom although I didn't get to try out the bath as we didn't spend much time in the room as there was just so much to see and do in Berlin.
The breakfast they served was vast you could have anything that you wanted from cold meats, cheeses to hot food or just toast if you wanted too.
Our five days there was very relaxing and we enjoyed it throughly. If we are ever back in Berlin we will be booking in here again.

Room Tip: Their double room suites are very nice and comfortable and if you didn't want to socialise with...

This is my second stay at the Mercure Checkpoint Charlie and my enthusiasm for the hotel is undiminished. This time we choose a Privilege Suite (room 402), which was huge and allowed us to entertain the friends we were travelling with. The room was clean, well maintained and all the equipment, including two televisions and fridges, worked perfectly. The bathroom included a bath and separate shower. The shower tray was large, but to avoid getting water all over the bathroom floor it was necessary to stand in the corner of the shower, which rather defeats the object. There was only one negative and that was the Wifi access. In the morning, access could only be gained by standing in the room entrance and even then it was intermittent. It was better late at night, but not great. The hotel management has since indicated that it is trying to improve the access. We ate breakfast in the restaurant three times. The selection and quality of the food was excellent. The mostly young hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.

Good place near of Check Point Charlie . Confortable and spacious rooms. Nice breakfast from buffet. Friendly, smiling and professional staff. Quite place. To be recommended either for business or for tourism, even if east berlin is really still less attractive than west berlin

Spending a couple of days there for business was a very good experience for me - I never good such an amazing room fur a reasonable price in a Berlin - not even taking the location of the hotel itself into account. The staff especially at the reception area was outstanding as well.

I have to travel to Berlin regularly and since there are so many hotels I usually try to stay in a different every time, so I know quite a lot of hotels there already. This one is indeed a very good one. It is located very close to the city center, but still quite enough for a decent sleep. I liked the spacious rooms and the excellent breakfast.
