“A very comfortable and relaxing stay”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I have used Mercure hotels in Germany before and knew that I would not be taking a chance in using this one in Berlin.
The hotel is in a very central location so that all the main tourist sites can be reached easily by foot. Our room was large, well appointed, with very comfortable beds, and was spotlessly clean. There was always plenty of hot water for showers and the room was nice and warm 24 hours a day. Breakfast was excellent and as long as you book a room that includes breakfast at the outset it is very reasonable for what you get. The hotel staff were always very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I think that anyone who stays here will really appreciate what good value it really is. Our only grumble was the drinks machine in the room, which required special sachets for use. It would be so much easier to provide a kettle instead.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 6th floor facing inwards, so there was no noise from traffic or anything else.

Great location smack between the old east/west city centers, easy to get to from anywhere due to hotels proximity to U & S bhan stations. Hotel itself is typical 4* so at 60 euros a night it was a bargain & had everything one might expect i.e. clean, large room/bed, gym etc. Breakfast however was + 18 euros (no problem, plenty of cafes etc around the corner). The hotel also charged for in-room wifi which is a minus especially when the free wifi in the lobby doesn't work, however I think a lot of Berlin hotels charge wifi so no real loss by staying here. The hotel has rooms for smokers!

Room Tip: smile & ask nicely:)

Service was excellent and we were felt very welcomed and very pleased with the service and our room was upgraded for free as we arrived early. It was absolutely amazing. Breakfast was expensive but definitely worth it. Location was superb and we walked to the central area within 10 minutes. Definitely worth staying again!! Best hotel in Berlin.

Located near Checkpoint Charlie it has good access to the underground. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful and good breakfast. Try and get a deal including breakfast. Will definitely use again on next visit to Berlin.

This was our biggest "treat" accommodation in Europe, and it was incredible. The room was substantially sized (bigger than one apartment we had lived in), the beds were fantastically comfortable and the breakfast was the best hotel breakfast we have experienced anywhere. In fact, we treated ourselves to slow dining each breakfast, and were able to skip lunch every day.
The staff at reception were fantastic, and spoke excellent english, which was great when we were trying to get a last-minute table at UnSicht, so they could offer us their advice on other suitable restaurants when UnSicht was full.
Location was great, close to everything either by foot or by bahn.
Only complaint was that the only free internet was a single computer in the lobby, but that was not often in use.

Lovely hotel with internet access in the lobby, and friendly staff who greeted us with big smiles. We didn't have much to do with the bar or breakfast as there is so much to do in Berlin we were out most of the time. We were upgraded to an apartment (not sure why, I can only think it was because it was my birthday) and the room was absolutely fantastic, my only gripe was the coffee machine wouldn't work for some reason, but no hassle for us as I say we were always out. Love the Mercure and haven't had a bad stay in one yet.

Well located, a couple minutes' walk from Checkpoint Charlie, and a 20-minute walk from the famed Brandenburg Gate and Unter den Linden with the majority of Berlin's sights. Clean and well lit, rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Breakfast buffet offers a nice variety; dining room is modern and well attended.

The only drawback was no free wifi in the room. I spent a lot of time in the lobby, the only spot where wifi was free. Fortunately, I had my iPad with me, for only one public computer was available.

Room Tip: Though I'd requested (and was given) a room at the back, the street was so quiet that even a roo...
