“My favorite hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

This was my favorite of the 5 hotels I stayed at during 2 weeks in Germany and France. Upon check-in, I was surprised to be upgraded to an apartment (Residenz) in the adjacent building. Considering I only paid 110 USD per night, this was unexpected. The front desk clerk was very friendly and gave me a free walking map of the city, which was just what I needed. The apartment was beautiful, spotless, and featured tall ceilings and a view of the courtyard. I heard no noise what-so-ever overnight. The apt featured a full stove, microwave, fridge/minibar and plenty of cabinets (no plates pans or cutlery, so I would have needed to furnish that in order to cook). The apt also featured a very nice espresso machine, which I must say was brilliant. I don't think I'll ever be happy with the rudimentary coffee machines in other hotels after experiencing this. Bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was well appointed. Only disappointment was the lack of free WIFI. I finally gave up and paid 3 EUR for 1 hr of access, but it was only because I had an urgent need. Also, there was no free bottled water in the room, unlike some hotels. I didn't try the breakfast, since I can't imagine whatever it was would have been worth 18 EUR extra/day. There is Coffee Fellows and other places within walking distance for morning fare. Location was good, with Checkpoint Charlie (tourist trap) nearby and the excellent Jewish museum under 10 min away by foot. I had to walk about 15 min with my luggage from the Friedrichstrasse S-bahn station since the U-bahn is under construction right now. My biggest disappointment was that I only got to stay here for 2 nights. For the price, location and city, I would have gladly spent a week here.

We stayed for 4 nights in a huge, well-designed superior room. It was like a suite with a large lounge and two other lounge chairs, wardrobes, a fridge, coffee machine & a balcony. The bed was very comfortable. The toilet was in a separate room off the foyer area and the bathroom had a walk-in shower with good water pressure. The room and all the hotel public areas were very clean and tidy and all the staff friendly, helpful and efficient. The breakfasts were excellent both in variety and quality of food. The hotel is in a good location for exploring Berlin & I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if we are in Berlin.

Excellent hotel, quite impress by this Mercure Hotel. Everything perfect from the welcome desk to the room with separate WC . Breakfast quite extensive. Great location near the U bahn Stadtmitte, very near the Check Point Charlie. About 30 min walking through the Gendarmemarkt towards the museum isle. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Had room 118 with view to an interior courtyard with trees. Very quite.

We usually stay at at least one Mercure hotel while traveling in Europe and we were happy with our stay at this hotel. The room was large for 2 people with ample room to move around and it had 2 closets, 1 for each of us. The bathroom had a large walk in shower and the the basin area was a decent size. Breakfast was in a nice bright room and the offerings were plentiful and all of the food was really good, with various egg dishes, bacon and sausage, great cereal/muesli selections and lots of fruit. There was a large selection of other meats and cheeses and the coffee was very good and you could request a take away cup for coffee too. It was very easy to get around to the different sights from the hotel location. All in all we were very happy with this hotel and would stay there again.

Beware to check your reservations with this hotel. As the name implies, there are apartments (residenz) also next to the hotel. We wanted two regular rooms, but were shuttled off to the apartment side and there the bedrooms are on another floor than the main part of the apartment. So, for carrying luggage, or for those that have a difficult time with slippery / varnished stairs, do NOT look here.

The breakfast was decent but a bit over-priced (very typical of Berlin, so no surprise). Overall, avoid the apartments! Even the idea of a sky light over the bed is crazy when the sun rises at 4 AM!!

The hotel is in an exelent location, near 2 metro stations, and near some touristic attractions like Gendarmenmarkt and Checkpoint Charlie. And it´s also possible to walk towards the Berlin Dome, the Brandenbourg Gate and the Reichstag.
Very friendly hosts. Highly recomended.
