Though steeped in tradition, West Berlin is as exciting as ever: Attractions like the KaDeWe department store, Kurfürstendamm and the Memorial Church are hugely popular. As a guest at the 3-star Mercure Hotel Berlin Zentrum, you're just a short walk awayfrom the city center. All 78 rooms have free WIFI and some have air-conditioning. Arrival: The main train station is 3.1 miles away, Tegel airport is 5 miles away and Schönefeld airport is 13.7 miles away. If arriving by car, take the A111, A113 or A115.
I really liked the location, as a gay traveller - I could not be any closer to the main gay area of Berlin, excellent location! Also free Internet access across the hotel is huge advantage.
What I really disliked is a lack of sound insulation, the room is very small and you can hear extremely well your neighbours and what is going on in their bathrooms and corridors, lack of proper insulation I find a major problem for this hotel and small size of room.
Location, value for money
Wi-fi in the room was bouncing, so better to have alternative connection option.
Good location in a friendly central part of Berlin. Easy to park your car. Many good restaurants in the neighburhood.
The rooms are very small!
Great hoten in the heart of Berlin, good comfort
no Air Con in the rooms for summer guests
Very good value for money. Location only a 5 min. walk to Porto Nigra (the Roman city gate). The hotel staff is absolutely willing to help with whatever your need. Nice breakfast.
The lighting in the bathrooms made it very difficult to primp: the only lighting is bright spot lights in the ceiling above the mirror. Thus, makeup application was almost impossible.
A lovely little hotel in a quiet street near the gay village. Staff were very friendly. Excellent breakfast. Very handy for the U2 line, only minutes away from station. Will definitely stay there again.
Took my notebook but couldn't get connected to the Wi-fi
Comfortable beds, spotless bathroom. We asked for a quiet room and it was very quiet. Staff were very helpful.
Good location, free wireless internet.
I normally don't go for hotels less than 4 stars, but we arrived in Berlin at 8.30pm and had nowhere to stay. We wanted something that was located near the centre, near the gay area and something that didn't cost 250 euro per night as we were coming to Berlin from previous 3 city breaks (4 places in 1 week...great). This hotel though, even though it was not a posh hotel, was spotlesly clean, a bit dated, but comfortable, strong shower which is nice. It is less than 5 minutes walk from the underground station. Berlin is big, and you can stay anywhere, you will still have to use the undergroun, which is clean, reliable and inexpensive. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Please note that it's not a gay hotel, but it is right in the gay area, and I would comfortably say that it's suitable for both gay and non-gay travellers and for families.
Hotel in the centre of West Berlin. easy to get to, close to shops, bars and restaurants. Staff are very friendly and speak excellent english. rooms are a decent size and clean.
Shame breakfast is not included in the price
