“This hotel is really worthwhile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I stayed in the Mercure Checkpoint in the weekend of Jan 25th to 27th and I really consider this a worthwhile hotel, it does not have a expensive rate (pre-paid, non refundable), the hotel staff are kind and serve you very well.
If you are in a vacation travel, looking for museum and historic spots, this hotel is well placed, not so good as Unter den Linden or around Museumsinsel, but it is no more than 15 min walking from the Gerdarmenmarkt.

Well located in sidestreet of famous elegant shopping street Friedrichstrasse (10 minute walk to the best section), around the corner of Checkpoint Charlie, offering very comfortable spacious rooms for an affordable price. Four star indeed. Paid internet connection slow.

Staying at Mercure Hotel & Residenz Berlin Checkpoint Charlie was very pleasant for 3 days: the rooms is big, bed is very comfortable and a coffee machine is available in the room. The bathroom is also very pleasant. The staff was very friendly.
The bad aspects are that the Free Internet is only available in the lobby and that the breakfast is expensive.

We booked a room with an internet offer in this hotel due to its central position, and we had the good surprise to find out that the room they gave us was really huge for two people and for that price.
Breakfast is served in a small environment (if compared with hotel dimensions), so it could be a little crowded, but it is fairly rich.
The hotel, as its name shows, is close to Checkpoint Charlie and Stadtmitte subway station is very close, and from there you can reach any attraction of the city without need to have your own car with you.
The disctrict is quiet and the feeling is that you can walk to and from the hotel even at late hours with no troubles.

Room Tip: If you look for something particular ask for rooms on two levels on the first floor (even if sleepin...

The family of 3 stayed at this hotel for 16 nights so we had an experience of feeling all sides of the service of Mercury Check Point Charlie Hotel. My opinion is to say many warm words to staff. I asked my daughter (she stayed with us) what she liked the most and she said it was this hotel ( I was surprised as I thought she would mention malls or KaDeWe, or something like that). And this is true. Good location, reasonable price, good (like at home) breakfast, everyday cleaning the room.

Going to breakfast, all the time we met friendly staff. Yes, it's true. Smiles on faces (not false ones), good attitude, many questions like "what would you like to drink", "some coffee, please", "fresh orange juice" or something like that.

By the way, I never saw a cleaner of the room we stayed at. Maybe they had a detector? Who knows, really it was pleasant.

Paid extra for above standard room and got huge room with balcony and coffee machine, at reasonable international price. Staff very helpful and free internet. 5 min to U-Bahn. Although far from best shopping and fair distance to main sites. Use the "pedal bicycle guys" and taxi's who are quite reasonable.

Room Tip: Smokers - Pay extra and get large room with balcony & coffee machine
