About Mercure Hotel & Residenz Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin

U-Bahn around the corner

Mercure Hotel & Residenz Checkpoint Charlie is named after the former border crossing between East and West Berlin, now a historical sight 4 minutes' walk away. Kochstrasse U-Bahn stop is a 5-minute walk, and the elegant Gendarmenmarkt square can be reached on foot in 7 minutes.

A storied Jewish history

A 10-minute walk away is the Daniel Libeskind-designed Jewish Museum, which explores the 2,000-year history of Germany's Jews. After a 10-minute stroll up Friedrichstrasse, you can satisfy a craving for French design with the Berlin outpost of Parisian store Galeries Lafayette.

Free massage Tuesday

The Checkpoint Bar is a popular spot, serving cocktails or wine by the glass either indoors or in the hotel's green courtyard in good weather. There's a fitness center and sauna which open 24 hours, and the hotel invites guests for a free massage on Tuesdays between 5 and 8 PM.

Free WiFi, pets welcome

The hotel's 139 air-conditioned rooms feature bold blue and orange accents and floor-to-ceiling windows with blackout curtains for a good night's sleep. Rooms are pet-friendly and include free WiFi, TVs with satellite channels, minibars, and espresso machines.

Mercure Hotel & Residenz Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin
Look no further, this is is a fantastic hotel!
Outstanding in every way! Location is excellent, close to lots of things but 1.5 blocks off the main street so it's quiet with a nice ambience in a lovely neighborhood. Super clean, huge room w/small balcony. Staff was top-notch. Great breakfast spread which my husband loved. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Convenient, Clean and Friendly
We chose this hotel because of the proximity to Checkpoint Charlie. It is a short walk to this historic sight. You can catch the hop-on, hop-off bus at the checkpoint too. There is a very nice Italian restaurant right across the street. The room service is great too. We came home a bit late after a long day of touring and just missed the room service delivery time. The manager personally delivered our order to our room. W had a larger room in the residenz section of the hotel, it was like a mini-apartment. Close walk to the u-bahn service too.

Nicely located hotel
Location was great for 3 days of walking all over (formerly) E Berlin and beyond. Also has a beer garden for relaxing at day's end. Room was gigantic by European standards. English speaking staff helpful and courteous. Good value.
