Zarenhof Prenzlauer Berg is locatedl in the very hip area of Berlin, not quite in the center. Which is good, because the rooms are quite quiet (if returning guests don't shout in the courtyard). The rooms are comfortable and the bathroom is well equipped. The furniture has seen its best days, but hey, what can you expect for such low... More

The name Zarenhof means in German "Zar's court". Actually, except for the carpets and Zar's family pictures - rooms were pretty simple. We've booked a room on 4th floor. it had a small balcony, tiny kitchen, standing shower + toilet in one room, LCD tv' phone, refrigerator, two chairs, writing desk and small table. everything was clean and comfortable, although...

My friend and me had a standard room with separate beeds (90euros). The size of the room is standard and the bathroom quite a huge alley. The room is equipped with a small kitchen, tv, cabin and fridge. The room was definitely clean! The hotel offers as well free WiFi but you have to get your code at the reception.... More

We picked up this hotel following recommendation of our friend who lives in Berlin few years already. Major reason was a 50% discount (in January 2015) and location. From location point of view, we weren't only searching for proximity to the center (Mitte), but also wanted to have good restaurants and coffee shops around. As we left all kids at... More

Tucked away inside a typical Berlin courtyard, the Zarenhof evokes the Communist era of East Berlin but all the good sides of it. Pictures of former Russian Tsars adorn the walls and the decor, though modern, has something of a bygone feel to it. The rooms are spacious, so clean and so comfy with great tea and coffee making facilities,... More

The location of Zarenhof Prenzlauer Berg in a second inner court is perfect. The U-Bahn, which is not a subway at this place, the tram and the car traffic in Schönhauser Allee are noisy. Nothing of this noise penetrates to the apartments of Zarenhof. However, the building in which it is situated is old (albeit refurbished and in good condition)... More

We choose this hotel from other trip advisor reviews, so thank you! It was a very comfortable stay and would go back again. The location was great being a 5 minute walk to the underground and a 6 minute ride to Alexander Platz. A short walk found many lovely restaurants. All staff were very friendly and efficient and overall good... More

This hotel is in my opinion a average 3 star. No special features. A basic room which was huge. Basic bathroom and facilities. Nothing really special. The main positives are the relation to the Mitte area. You can walk in 5 minutes. The breakfast was very good! The free internet a blessing (and it was fast)

Was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The hotel is situated at the back of the building off Schoenhauser allee, in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg, close to the cafe/boutique hot spot of Kollwitzplatz. It has about 5 or 6 floors, but there is a lift; it is quite a small hotel compared to some of the larger modern ones and... More

Booked this hotel for two nights for a weekend getaway with my husband and two sons, aged 19 and 20. We booked an apartment with breakfast included. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and situated in a quiet courtyard. The U-bahn was situated just across the road with easy links to the whole of Berlin, including Tegel Airport. Transport is cheap... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
