“Somewhere between average and very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I think that it was a good hotel, unfortunately there's not option on here between average and very good. The room was large and set up quite well to give you lots of space, especially as I was sharing with my mother so having the bathroom and WC seperate was good. The staff weren't always the friendliest, but we were there at the marathon so they were busy - and lets be honest this is pretty stock standard for Germany hotels. The room had a great coffee maker, but no kettle for tea. The bathroom because it didn't have a toilet was quite small, but then had a speaker so you could hear the tv while showering. So they have definitely thought of somethings, just missed it on others. The bar staff were nice, but the menu for lunch was really limited, although the food was good. Oh and they obviously have a bird problem, so the balconies are all covered in netting, and its not made for tall people... The location was fabulous, and for that main reason I'd go back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Really pleased to be able to access our room on arrival at midday. We requested a courtyard facing room as recommended by other TA reviews. Very quiet room but also because of being on the sixth floor.
As other reviewers have commented the 18 euro per person charge for breakfast seems particularly steep. Found it somewhat annoying that on arrival at the hotel, we were offered a deal of having breakfast for 15 euros per person if we took all three days but if we want to have just once it would be at the 18Euro rate and we need to say in advance. This way of charging does not seem very welcoming to the guest in my opinion. Instead went to nice cafes for croissant and coffee within five minutes walk.
Back to the positives - the hotel has a nice bar with comfortable areas of different seating and had a warm atmosphere on each evening. Very comfortable room with good quality fittings and furnishings. Bathroom had a separate walk in powerful shower.
Great location for restaurants. Ten minute walk to Gendarmenmarkt. Easy to use the efficient public transport system to get wherever you want to visit around the city.

My wife and and I spent 3 days at the Murcure Hotel. We picked this property based on review from Trip Advisor. I good decision. Our room was well maintained and very clean. The bed was also very good. The baths were excellen; plenty of water pressure and room in the bath. We had 1&half baths. There was a setting room and balcony and 2 TV's. We found this property well managed.We did not eat breakfast here; it was to expensive! Our check in and out experience was very efficient. The staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations.

Room Tip: Ask for inside courtyard room.

The hotel is truly affordable with excellent and spacious room. I can't believe that the room was so big and very nicely decorated...and also has two bathroom! for less than 150 euros!!! The location is perfect to go anywhere in Berlin. When I visit Berlin, I will definitely use the hotel at checkpoint again.

Just a round the corner from Checkpoint Charlie, this hotel has a great location. Within walking distance you will find a plethora of very good, authentic German restaurants (have the Concierge make reservations early, though!) The hotel itself has an adorable bar right off the lobby, which also serves food (try the apple streudel). The staff was extremely accommodating.

Stayed for 2 nights. The expresso machine in the room was an exceptionally nice touch. Location wise - smack in the middle of Check Point Charlie, easy enough access to public transport and tourist bus. I really enjoyed my stay.
