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.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in Sept 2013. This hotel is in an ideal position for a tourist wishing to walk to the main attractions, which we did including the isle of museums. We were very impressed by the service and organisation of the hotel. Nothing was too difficult. Service was swift and great every time including trivial requests like ...can I borrow an umbrella.... No issue - there was an umbrella there for us every time. Staff was very friendly, knowledgable and helpful including currency exchange or tour tickets. Very clean spacious room with a comfortable bathroom. A great hotel at reasonable cost. Great apples free for guests in reception!
