Small hotel with excellent restaurant and cosy spa. Been there many times and always wanted to come back. Enjoy the little unique and special features and forget the standard, boring hotel chains. As the hotel is small you always get personalized service. Only problem is the lack of a night staff.

The hotel is located in an old German school building and hence provides an nice and large atmosphere inside and outside. The rooms are clean and of modern standard, but far enough from those hotels where you do not know in which city you are, as the look a like. In the Mercator the rooms still have an individual flair... More

We wanted to go out for a nice dinner, but not too far to drive. So we decided to give the Mercator hotel in Gangelt a visit. I've been there already more often for a beauty treatment and can only recommend it. The saunas and the swimming pool are also recommendable for a 2 hours relaxation break and the breakfast... More

I have stayed at the Mercator about 20 times in the last 5 years and in each case, my visit has been outstanding. If you're looking for a great 17-room boutique type of hotel, with excellent clean rooms, first-rate restaurant, a spa that meets all your needs, and service/staff that are outstanding...then the Mercator is your hotel. Whether you're in... More

Stayed there for 1 week in August 2012. I called ahead and booked only to find out upon arrival that the spa was closed for the Summer break. I booked mostly for the spa which was very disappointing. The website and employee over the phone did not inform about that closure. Also, the spa is only open a few days... More

I came to Gangelt for the hotel as this is what I was told to book. It turns out I ended up finding my house in Gangelt also. (literally right around the corner from the hotel) The hotel is very typical German with a modern flair. Rooms are super cozy and wifi is everywhere (that isnt common yet in Germany)... More

Just came back from a one-night stay at the Mercator hotel in Gangelt. I really don’t understand the other reviews @Tripadvisor. Our room #108 was smelly, damp and hot with no airco. We checked-in in the afternoon, so far so good. The room is a bit dated. We left for diner in another town and returned at about 21.45h. When... More

“Hotel is beside a cathedral, with church bells, so if you are a light sleeper and visiting during the summer and expect your windows to be open, you should ask for a room facing away from the church.”

“If you have the time, explore Gangelt...awesome town with a great history.”

“I travelled with another person on this trip. She had a room next to mine. Hers was significantly smaller. If you want a big private room with lots of windows(3) ask for 107. The only negative, if you are a light sleeper be aware the town clock strikes on the hour. Nalso note there are no English channels on TV. It's a cute little German village thogh so be sure and explore”
