Mercure Hotel Berlin City Center Review

You can book the Mercure Hotel Berlin City Center here.

Mercure is an upscale, discount brand of Accor and has a large number of hotels all over Europe and also in parts of Asia.

This would be my second visit to this hotel primarily for two reasons – location and price. The property is located just off Chausseestraße and Torstraße and has a large number of hip coffee shops, restaurants and bars just around the corner. You can easily walk to almost all the Mitte attractions.

My second favorite hotel area is Potsdamer Platz, where the Grand Hyatt Berlin is, but it’s much further away.

This time, I arrived at 10AM for my check in and wasn’t hopeful, but the super-friendly check-in lady gave me a room right away – no questions asked!

The rooms are small but functional (like most ibis/Mercure rooms) and come with an even smaller bathroom.

During my last stay in August the AC worked very well – and while it was November this time, the room was still hot. The AC showed signs that it would work but no cool air ever came of it. That was annoying.

Also, the shower pressure was surprisingly low – definitely better than my recent stay at the Holiday Inn in Dar es Salaam, but for a newish hotel in Germany, it isn’t enough.

There is free WiFi that’s very slow and paid WiFi which works with Boingo. I took me 20 minutes to log on with Boingo – it was that complicated. And even after that, the reception was only good right next to the door, not anywhere else in the room.

The breakfast is eur 19 and it’s just not worth it, as there’s so many awesome coffee shops around that give you coffee and pastries for under 5 eur.

I really liked the hotel for its convenient location near Hauptbahnhof (just 10 minutes by bus from Berlin Airport) and its functional style, but this time it was just too much hassle. Next time I’ll find another hotel.
