This is one of the best hotels I stayed in Europe during our last trip. Nothing can beat its location. It's next to the hbf. If you are traveling by train, this is the place to stay. The rooms were made available in time. The room was pretty small (triple room), but sufficient. Neat, clean and good service. What distinguished... More

The room itself was good, functional clean and good value. The location is great for the train and also the parliament, it's a long enough walk into the main shopping area of Berlin though. However unfortunately we has to deal with the same female receptionist for checking in/out etc and her manner was terrible and she was quite rude and... More

I stayed here on a school history trip a while ago. A great place for school groups! The rooms were extremely clean and quite spacious for a hostel. The breakfast was good, what you would expect from a German hostel. The staff are very friendly and were great with all of our concerns. My friends money was stolen when we... More

We´ve been twice to Berlin... both time at Meininger Hauptbahnhof. The place is really great and it is 2 minutes from the metro/train station!!! Also, after walking only 15 minutes you´ll be in front of the most famous monuments of Berlin.

The hotel is ideally situated being adjacent to the central train station. However, we did not feel comfortable in our room. It is like they mad dash made it ready as there was disgusting filth under the bed and dirt all over the floor of our room. Do not stay on the upper floors - elevator could take a while... More

Good hotel, small rooms but very convenient. Elevator, good breakfast but a lot of student or school classes. Hotel well located at the side of the rail station with taxi at the front, there are several city tour buses nearby, and a a good view from our room with the river, bridge....a part of town too.... Many places such as... More

I had a very enjoyable experience at this hotel. The rooms were decent, clean and accessible. The food was good. The hotel gives a fun vibe with a lot of youth around. The hotel is very close to the Hauptbahnhof - train station - and there is a store where you can purchase postcards, and many vending machines. Wifi was... More

The super noisy group of German teenagers in front of my room woke me up in the middle of the night at 1 am and it lasted 2 hours with all the giggling and shout. There is even no phone in the room so you could not dial the reception to report this, very disappointing!! The wifi in the room... More

The rooms are smaller that rat holes! If you book a room for 4, you would probably get a room with 2 bunk beds and it is impossible for all 4 people to stand in the room at the same time. The only good thing about it that it is close to the main train station.

This hotel which is located in a very good location (right beside the Berlin central station), does have several draw backs. Be aware that although it calls itself a hotel it is meant more like a hostel catering to teens and backpackers rather a true hotel. For its centrally location versus its price, this is not a bad choice to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There couldn't be a more central location than by the main railway station. Eight bus lines, subways and city trains and countless regional and long-distance railways meet here. The hotel is thus ideally positioned for exploring the whole city. The panorama roof terrace affords spectacular views of Berlin. Our international guests benefit from free WiFi and meet up in the lobby, hotel bar, guest kitchen and the gaming area in a relaxed atmosphere. What more do you want? ... more   less
