“Only hotel with shuttle for TXL early morning departure”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I spent hours reviewing hotels that would be in close proximity to Tegel Airport (TXL) since we had a 6:20 am flight departure for Dusseldorf on Jan. 2 and could not take any chances on missing this early morning flight. To my amazement, there were few hotels near Tegel and only one, The Mercure, that offered shuttle service to the airport. So the Mercure it had to be. The hotel is set in a forest-like location near the airport, but certainly not within walking distance to this particular aerodrome. The front desk people were efficient and knowledgeable, English speaking, and assured us they would get us to the airport for our 6:20 am flight. Our room was clean and efficient, the bathroom was spotless, and the bedding was immaculate with comfortable duvets provided as needed. One nice hotel benefit was unlimited use of the hotel computers located in the lobby - no fee and no time limit. We do have an Accor loyalty card which may have made a difference.
Our only complaint about this hotel is about the old matron who appeared to manage the restaurant. When I wondered into the bar to look at the menu, she immediately told me to get out of the bar and go to the restaurant if I only wanted to peruse the menu. She didn't speak much English, but I certainly didn't appreciate her tone of voice. Two hours later my wife and I decided to dine in their very attractive but small dining room. We chose the leg of pork, sauerkraut and boiled potatos. I commented to our server that it was traditional in my German-heritage family to always eat sauerkraut and pork on New Year's Day if one expected to have money throughout the year. I asked her if such was the case in Berlin. She said not and then proceded to ask the matron-manager the same question who replied: "Some of these Americans are quite weird with their interpretations of our traditions." She should have had the common sense to keep her thoughts to herself.
The bus to the airport was ready to depart at 5:00 am and we were at the airBerlin counter at 5:10 am, so other than the restaurant incident, we were pleased with our stay at the Mercure Tegel Airport. As a footnote (and warning) the new Willy Brandt (state-of-the-art) airport is now scheduled for opening mid 2014. SO MUCH FOR GERMAN EFFICIENCY AND ENGINEERING!!! This airport will replace most of the TXL flights. There will be a new Airport Marriott at the Willy Brandt Airport.

Room Tip: Rooms are extremely well sound proofed. I never heard any aircraft noise during our 18 hour stay at...

The hotel is really close to the airport and they have a free shuttle service. The rooms are big, the bathroom in my room was smelling a little but in general clean.
The wifi is not free but during the check in they made me register to their loyalty program and in this way I had complementary wifi.

Of corse I went there since my flight was very early the following morning! They have a shuttle (of course for free) to go and come from the airport, you just need to call them when you are at the airpot and wait 5 min. for the shuttle. Moreover the bus TXL that goes from the airport takes you to Alexanderplaz in about 45-50 min so that I could spend the evening in town. The rooms are large, very comfortable, people at the reception are kind helpful and efficient and if you book in advance the price very good!!

I stayed here prior to an early morning flight back to the US. The rooms are comfortable and functional (wish the internet was free) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I ate the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and it was better than I thought it might be. Location is the best for rapid access to the airport. The shuttle had me there in less than 5 mintues and was available as soon as I asked.

You can even reach the airport Berlin-Tegel TXL walking distance, its just about a 10min walk trough a quiet street to the hotel. But they also offer a shuttle bus. This Mercure is modern and comfortable and very quiet even with the short distance to the airport. There is also a outdoor pool during summer season and a good restaurant. The breakfast buffet is a bit expensif but also very good quality with everything you can wish. The staff is friendly and fast, in the lobby are two free internet computers for guest use. To go to the city there is also a public bus with a busstop nearby and public travel is cheap in Berlin. This Mercure hotel is the perfect place to stay if you have a early departure or late arrival from / to TXL.

very close to the airport and with free drive from and to Tegel.
rather basic service and a bit smelly rooms - for one night it is ok, bot not very much to enjoy.
Bathroom looks like at an old ferry - although more spacious.
if you need to stay overnight close to Tegel - ok but do not expect too much!

It is a good choice if you want to stay in a good hotel near the Tegel Berlin airport - it was easy to reach coming from the south and only 5 minutes to the airport using the free shuttle service from the hotel. We had dinner at the hotel, a little pricey. Breakfast was very good.
The room was nice, quiet, the heating system was working fine - good shower and nice flat screen TV. They charge for the internet access, at 10 Euro/24hours. The internet connection was disappointing, very slow, I would expect high speed in Germany.
Front desk service was friendly and efficient.
