Hotels in Berlin
We have visited Berlin twice and stayed in two different areas – Invalidenstrase and Kreuzberg. Read on to see where we stayed in Berlin!
Mercure Berlin City
We stayed at 4 star Mercure City Hotel in Berlin which is centrally located making it accessible for travelling around the vast city. It is 100 yards from the shopping street Friedrichstrasse and is just 2 minutes from Naturkundemuseum Underground Station which has great connections around the city.
The main train station is 1km away and we travelled from Tegel airport on the S+U bus “Alexanderplatz via Hauptbahnhof in 25 minutes getting off at Invalidenpark and walking 5 minutes to the hotel. The cost was only €2.80 and can be used as a part of a travelcard.
The Mercure hotel has been recently renovated in 2017 so the hotel is modern and bright. The rooms are a decent size with A/C, a flat screen TV, desk, wardrobe and a large bathroom. The reception area is open 24 hours and you can store your luggage on the final day. Breakfast is not included in the room rate is an extra €15. We chose a local café Balzac Coffee which is like a Starbucks. Get the delicious cinnamon roll!
We stayed at 3 star Hotel Ludwig Van Beethoven for a city break. With its close proximity to the metro (Hermanplatz) and the nightlife in Kreuzberg, it was a great location. There is a direct bus from Schönefeld Airport to Hermannplatz or a taxi is around 20-25 Euros.
The rooms were spacious with free wifi and breakfast for around £35 per person per night. There is a lovely terrace area for eating breakfast or having a drink and the staff were friendly.
