It is just a short walk to the chic boutiques and the hustle and bustle of Friedrichstrasse, but as a guest at the 4-star Mercure Hotel & Residenz Berlin Checkpoint Charlie you can also enjoy the calm and comfort of a grand Wilhelminian-style building. All 136 lavish rooms have air conditioning and free WIFI. Relax at the fitness center and sauna. The hotel is approximately 10 minutes from the main train station, 15.5 miles (25 km) from Schönefeld Airport and 3.1 miles (5 km) from the A100 highway.
An excellent and attentive staff - even kept the bar open specifically for our group of 8 persons. Nothing was a trouble to them. We all made gift purchases at the hotel... Our rooms were spotlessly clean and although not ready for us when we arrived at 9:30 (we did not expect them to be), the very helpful receptionist took our luggage and gave us tags to collect on our return. When we returned we received an excellent run-down of facilites available in the hotel prior to being given our keys. Couldn't fault the excellent breakfast and our meal (included as part of the Italian Weekend Break) was also excellent - we went off the main menu at very little cost!!! The staff in this restaurant were also very warm and welcoming and helpful. Our upgraded suites were perfect also. Couldn't fault this hotel in any way. Would recommend to anybody and hope to make a return visit.
Everything was perfect - may be an idea to have tea/coffee making facilites in the rooms but we didn't miss same!!!
Great location, comfortable rooms and helpful staff.
The breakfasts were relatively expensive but offered a wide selection of food - enough to last a morning of sightseeing!
The hotel had a family suite comprising of two double rooms which was ideal and very good value
Family Suite was excellent size and Hotel was very central
Did not like the fact that the hotel had no restaurant for evening meals.
Near downtown. Good communications (underground, etc). Free internet access and a free PC. I was very lucky because I booked a normal room and they gave me a suite
