What the hotel lacks in glamour is more than made up for by basic amenities and proximity to desirable locations. The tram stop directly outside means quick, simple access to most local attractions. You can get off a train in chaotic Berlin central station, catch a tram, and be at the Mercure front desk in under 10 minutes. The small bar area has a decent selection and includes one of the best local beers (not widely available) to be found on tap. Renting a bike is highly recommended unless you're not used to riding in Europe and bothered by nearby traffic.
