Very beautiful hotel, in a quiet street far from noise and traffic but near to Friedrichsstrasse and the main monuments.
Rooms were large and clean, the staff kind and helpfull.
A negative note: breakfast is not included and really too expensive.

Location is great, close to historical sights & shopping street. Room was spacious (we had the privilege suite), simply decorated but had everything we needed, with the exception of a coffee pot. Air conditioning worked perfectly, the room was instantly cool as soon as we turned it on, which was great since the weather was really hot. Breakfast was excellent, and staff were efficient.

We stayed for 3 days (4 nights) at this hotel. We are very glad to have choosen it. It is located next to Checkpoint Charlie, so you can walk to Brandenburg Gate (15 min.) or take the subway (u-bahn). As we were three of us, they gave us a wide and confortable room in the 8th floor. Two small drawbacks: the lift only reaches 7th floor, and there were an unpleasant smell in the hallway. Finally, breakfast is fantastic.

Mercure Hotel & Residenz Berlin Checkpoint Charlie is located in the eastern part of Berlin. It is very close to the Brandenburg Gates, the Potsdamer Pltaz and other attractions. The hotel is clean and nice. Rooms are spacious. The breakfast is good. the price is reasonable. I highly recommend this hotel for the Berlin trip.

We where very pleased with our choice of hotel, the staff where very helpful, the rooms huge, and very clean. The balcony overlooking the courtyard was a great bonus, not usual in cities. There was a good choice of restaurants in the near vicinity, all in all no complaints whatever. Would definately reccomend.

Had stayed at the hotel in 2009 staying in a family suite comprising of two good sized bedrooms, bathroom and WC - very impressed with the accommodation.

Re-booked for 2010 and have to admit not quite so happy this time round. Again, booked a family suite but bedrooms (and bathroom) in this were considerably smaller. Also, whereas the suite last year had a good size bedroom with a desk and wardrobes, this time round the bed in the second room was a sofa bed, no wardrobes. Fine for small children, but not for our 17 year old. Thems the breaks, I guess.

On our next visit to Berlin, will definitely look again at the Mercure, but will also be looking to see if can get a better deal elsewhere, will not be an automatic return.

The Mercure Hotel staff was friendly, helpful and professional. All questions answered; all wishes granted. The breakfasts are absolutely superb (we remain grateful that our room arrangement was inclusive breakfast!). Endless buffet offerings to get you truly prepared for each day. In addition the hotel bar and bistro serves good food and drink til late in the evening - until 01:00 the weekend we arrived.

The triple room we stayed in was roomy despite its narrowness, with separate bathroom and toilet, and plenty of wall outlets (a personal favorite). Hotel staff puts the rooms back in fine shape each morning. The Mercure has a great location within walking distance to Checkpoint Charlie (duh) as well as many other sites, shopping, places to eat, etc. We ended up extending our stay to six nights and it wasn't nearly enough.

Internet availability is provided by a single wired terminal available for guests next to the reception desk , and a fairly slow WiFi signal throughout the lobby. So what. You should be outside seeing Berlin.

The "fitness room" was a bit less than expected, a rather small room on the 7th (top) floor of the hotel comprising an exercise bike and a stair-climber, with an adjoining smaller room with a mat on the floor. Hard to find much inspiration here. Didn't try the sauna. No problem, again, since all the walking and biking we did in Berlin afforded plenty of exercise.

Parking is available from the hotel; the lobby elevator takes you directly to the secured garage level for Mercure guests and costs EUR 13,-- daily. We would definitely fly to Berlin on our next visit, however, as the car wasn't used at all during our visit, and the seven hour drive from Holland isn't very interesting (w/ apologies to those living near the motorway on the way to Berlin).

There are many places to eat near the hotel, or the nearby subway stop takes you anywhere you want to go in the evening. We enjoyed a very nice Italian restaurant a block from the hotel ("Lungomare Trattoria Bar" at Krausenstr.11) for dinners, and late evening coffee.

The recommendation for daily excursions in Berlin is to rent a bike (said the Dutch guy).
Head towards Potsdammer Platz and rent bikes to see this extraordinary city easily and cheaply. We paid EUR 10,-- a bike per 24 hour day, with no deposit.

There's lots to see and do in Berlin. The history is rich and hardly limited to the suffering from WWII and the Cold War. Plenty of other musea! The architecture is amazing. The food, the beer, the shopping, the sites, the nightlife, the people.
Cool town.
