    Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Hotel Berlin Zentrum

    Great little hotel in heart of Gay Berlin Neighborhood!

    from

    If you are gay this is a great 2 star choice in the heart of the gay Schoenberg section. Gay bars are all over the place including the popular Connections. Apollo and Steam saunas are within walking distance. Gay Video store with cruise area down the street.

    As for the hotel itself, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful and fluent in english. The Breakfast for 10 Euro is a real feast and can easily function as combo breakfast/lunch. It included bacon and eggs which is unusual in Germany as well as the usual german breakfast items of cold cuts, great selection of gourmet cheeses, cereals, breads, jams and the like.

    Rooms are quite adequate but small with TV minibar/refrigerator and phones. Bathroom includes soap and shampoo pump in very nice shower. Heated towell rack and hairdryer too. This hotel is a great value choice in Germany. I got it through priceline for approximately $100.00 US per nite.

    Excelent for city break

    from

    this is a small hotel very well located to visit the city. Staff was helpfull and and the rooms spacious and clean. Breakfast was above average and gave the energy needed to walk all day.

    there are good restaurants 5 minutes walking. One Italian (in the same street in front of a video store) and one Caribenean.

    A very good suprise.

    Good place to stay

    from

    Ended up at this hotel as a last choice but was very impressed with what we got.

    Breakfast was of a very good quality with plenty of choice. The rooms were basic but met their purpose. However, there was no air conditioning, which was noticeable in the hot weather.

    Located fairly close to the centre of Berlin and is easily walkable to most areas.

    Awesome Hotel!!!!

    from

    Stayed at Scandhotel in 3/05. Very friendly and helpful Staff. They all speak English. Excellent Location. The room is good size and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

    Bit noisy, but for the rest a good hotel.

    from

    Scandotel Castor, Berlin

    December 2004

    This is a small but nice hotel, though it is a bit noisy (inside - and outside, when you open the window). The rooms are not very big, but they are spacious enough, everything is nice and clean, and the bathroom (we had a shower, no bath) is a nice size as well. There are duvet covers on the beds, that are rather hot, and the pillows are terrible because they are so very thin. The box spring beds are very comfortable though, and the reception was very happy to provide an extra couple of pillows.

    There is a tv. in the room with plenty of channels-all German except BBC World. There is also pay-tv for about 10,00 per night.

    What makes this hotel extra good is the helpful and friendly staff AND the ample breakfast.

    It is a decent breakfast with cereals, yoghurt, juice, different kinds of bread, meat, cheese, boiled eggs, assorted jams, fresh fruit (salad) etc. If you wanted they would even cook scrambled eggs for you. This gives you a good base to have a look at the sights in Berlin.

    And the hotel is close to public transport. There are buses at the end of the street, and if you go a bit further there is the subway at Wittenbergplatz.

    Some tips for your visit in Berlin :

    1.When you want to order a Schaulust Museum Karte (12,00), remember that almost all museums are closed on Monday.

    2.The Welcome Card (21,00) is very useful if you want to use all forms of transport to get from 1 point to another, and it also offers you discount on many attractions. The public transport is very good in Berlin, and almost always runs in time. There are plenty of busses, trams, and of course the subway.

    3.Berlin still has many building sites, but in between are some very nice spots like Nikolaus-Viertel, Gendarmenmarkt, and you must not miss the Reichstag. And of course there are lots of interesting museums. In the summer you must visit Tiergarten Park. And also Botanischer Garten looked like it would be very nice in summer. Do NOT try to visit Vitra Museum, because it has been closed since March 2004!

    4. We were there in the middle of the winter, but Berlin seems a city that is best visited when the weather is nice, and people are strolling through the streets and sitting on the terraces. Also the river Spree seems a lot more interesting when the weather is nice.

    What we did not like was that there was a lot of graffiti, a lot of waste-lands, and a lot of rubble. Also (for the non-smokers among us), Berlin people smoke all the time and everywhere. After a while this can get on your nerves.

    Just one more tip for dinner: in the Fuggerstrasse = same street as the hotel there is a nice Indian restaurant, Maharadscha on the opposite side of the street. Good price, good food.

    "Excellent Location"

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Scandotel Castor

    20/24 June 2004.The hotel is situated in a quiet

    side-street to Martin Luther Strasse,near to Kudamm and KaDeWe.The staff was highly professional and polite.The room was very clean.

    We had wholesame breakfasts with a variety of

    cheeses,vegetables and different kinds of bread.

    We bought Welcome Cards for 72 hours-21 Euros.

    We had our first lunch in Silberterrasse,KaDeWe,to-

    day´s special,a good Piccata of turkey.In the afternoon we visited the Bauhaus Archiv Museum

    (design,architecture and art),situated in Klingelhöferstrasse 14,Tiergarten,interesting.

    You can visit the dome of the Reichstagshaus.We had a wonderful view over Brandenburger Tor,the

    river Spree,Fernsehturm am Alexanderplatz,

    Berliner Dom and Rotes Rathaus.

    The highlight of our visit was MoMA in Berlin,200 masterpieces from the Museum of Modern Art,New York.The place is Neue Nationalgalerie-Kulturforum,not far from Potsdamer Platz.We took

    our places in the queue for buying tickets 08.15.

    An hour later we could enter the museum.You can look at the Dance by Henri Matisse and Picasso´s

    Boy Lending a Horse.Among the surrealists I want

    to mention Dali´s painting: The Persistence of Memory, with long watches,among the Pop Artists,

    Roy Lichtenstein´s Drowning Girl.I have earlier seen Marc Chagall´s museum in Nice. It was interesting to see his old paintings from Russia:

    Over Vitebsk and I and the village.These works are

    imaginative and visionary.

    Not far from MoMA you can find the Gemäldegalerie. It displays European art from the

    13 th to the 18 th centuries. Among others you can see the Dutch painters: Brueghel,Rubens and

    Rembrandt and the Italian artists Raphael and Tizian.

    In the evening we went by bus number 200 to

    Alexanderplatz to visit Hackesche Höfe. It is a complex of high and decorated buildings ,nearly 100 years old,surrounding nine courtyards,where

    you can find a range of restaurants,shops and art

    galleries.We had supper at Hackescher Hof and ate

    a richly coloured salad,which was very fresh-looking.

    We used the next day for rest and shopping.We roamed in the neighbourhood of our hotel (Fuggerstrasse).Many streets were really "green".

    South of our hotel we found a small restaurant called April,where we got bread,vegetables and a good red wine,Merlot.

    A Little Gem

    from

    Picked this hotel because of it's reputation for great breakfasts - and wasn't disappointed. The choice of food would put a lot of top-priced hotels to shame. As a bonus, the location was excellent for the KuDamm & KaDeWe. Room was small but comfortable, and surprisingly quiet seeing it was on quite a busy street corner. Lots of excellent bars & restaurants in the surrouinding streets too.

    Good Location

    from

    Stayed at the Scandhotel in June 2003.Excellent service, nice size room - I had a twin for single use.

    Good choice at breakfast.Very good location, short walk to the metro trains.Friendly bars on the same street.

    Great hotel

    from

    Tried this hotel for the first time this year and I would definitley use it again. Very friendly staff, English speaking. The room was a good standard - I think it was technically a single but it had a large bed, minibar, TV/Radio, ensuite with walk-in shower. Excellent breakfast served until 11 at weekends so ideal for those late nights in Berlin. Talking of which, the hotel is ideally located for the Schoneberg gay scene in FuggerStrasse and Motzstrasse. I was there for the Easter weekend and the clientele was mostly straight couples but quite a few gay guys too. Being Easter there was plenty of free chocolate available from the hotel too - what more can you ask for! The hotel is also very well located for the Ku Damm and the delights of the KaDeWe department store. Also just a few mintes walk to Viktoria Luise Platz U-Bahn station. I have stayed in cheaper hotels in this area but I think this hotel was worth the extra.

    Caviar for breakfast

    from

    Cracking service, comfortable rooms(even the triples where you get a proper bed), they even put breakfast on early as we had to get a train to Poland. We were a large group of football fans and we thought we'd get iffy service, but we were actually treated like human beings, which makes a change. I'm going back there with my wife at Christmas.

We visited the main university of Berlin and the square where the nazis burned all of the books from the library which were written by Jews or people they didn't believe were worthy. We then visited the Reichstag which is the German parliamentary building and checkpoint Charlie which was the border crossing between ...
