“A perfect hotel in a perfect location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2010

Just come back from our first trip to Berlin, this hotel is ideally placed for seeing ALL of the sites within Berlins centre. Once you get your bearings you realise that you can easily walk to all the historic places. The hotel will also help you by booking trips and/or tickets for events. They were able to give us a printout of the U-bahn timetable that we would need in order to get us to a concert that we had tickets for (yes, the undergroud trains run to a timetable and are extremely efficient). We arrived late at night and had paid a basic rate for a basic room, upon arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a suite - what a fantastic surprise. The suite was massive and absolutely spotless, we had a balcony overlooking an internal courtyard and a little kitchen area where we were able to make a good old cup of tea after a hard days sightseeing. The staff cannot do enough for you and are all very friendly. The breakfast is a bit pricey at 18 euros per person but there is a damn fine selection, we just couldn't help but have it most mornings! Can't wait to go back to Berlin and will definately be using this hotel.

This is a lovely clean quite hotel in a good central location. Close enough to everything, but not in the middle of it. The staff was very nice with great language skills.

The hotel's location is good, near to two tube stations and in a walking distance from the Museum Island. Rooms are very big and comfort and very clean. Breakfast was great, with a lot of options.
The only thing that was a bit disappointing, but did not influence my overall positive view for this hotel, is that some people from the staff were not speaking English fluently; hence I had some misunderstanding when trying to order food from the room service. What is more, I experienced some difficulties with the wifi; I could not get connected with the voucher I bought from the reception, which they did charge me finally even if I did not use it.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel for our first visit to Berlin. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from Checkpoint Charlie and the Hop on Hop off city tour bus. Secure underground parking was available for €13 daily, cheap for a city centre hotel. Check in staff were quick, efficient and very helpful. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable with shower and separate toilet. Mini bar and safe are provided. Unable to comment on hotel breakfast as used new cafe short distance away. Overall this was an excellent hotel in a superb location, I would be delighted to stay at this hotel again.

We stayed at the Mercure Hotel & Residenz Berlin Checkpoint Charlie 3 nights and enjoyed every one of them.

We got a warm welcome and the staff was very helpful during the entire stay. They had time for a short chat and the general impression we got, were employees happy to do what they do.

The hotel is properly quit new and that combined with good housekeeping made the rooms and facilities inviting.

Location is perfect, full of history (cold war) and very close to public transportation (U-Bahn).

Summarizing:

Plusses:
Friendly staff
Great location – close to everything
Newly build
Direct access from closed parking to floor of room, protected with electronic key-card.
Extensive break first of high quality

Minuses:
No restaurant – when travelling with a child, possibility of dinning in the hotel is an advantage.
No coffee / tea maker in the room, which usually is standard in Mercure Hotels.

The two minuses are the reason for “only” four stars. Apart form those, we wouldn’t hesitate recommending the hotel to others.

The hotel is in a great location, close to Checkpoint Charlie, the U-Bahn, Galeries Lafayette all within easy walking distance. The room was very clean and comfortable, nicely furnished. The full breakfast at 18 Euros is expensive but you can easily get a coffee and croissant at a cafe. We would definitely choose this hotel again.
