We stayed at the hotel with our German language beginner’s class of 17 year olds and already sensed a certain skepticism towards this age group from the receptionist upon arrival. The Russian staff at the reception spoke English and German well enough to make simple conversation, but not well enough to clarify misunderstandings. The receptionist seemed perpetually annoyed and referred... More

This hotel is located in a very pleasant part of Berlin. The main problem I had with this hotel is the poor customer service. The staff working at the reception desk was rude and not helpful. All in all although rooms are good value for money but the people who run the place have no idea how to make their... More

Hotel de Ela is a nice hotel, if you are only staying a few nights (we stayed 4). We were given a room on the ground floor, which was very spacious. Tv was unwatchable, terrible reception. Very sheer curtain which could bother people who like to sleep in. External bathroom was nice and clean, but inconvenient when you had to... More

We were four people staying at this hotel. We were given a room on the second floor. The room was an old world feeling and large windows with sunlight. For the night we closed the shades and no problem to sleep. The bathroom was kind of small but OK. We loved the place because we felt relax and like if... More

This hotel is in a great location, but that's kinda the end of the positive things. No air conditioning, no bathroom in your room, no blinds to keep the sun out of your face in the morning, and don't be fooled by the many reviews saying that there is "free breakfast", because its definitely not free. Its 7.65 Euros for... More

I was afraid of staying in this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but the hotel is great (and cheap!). I stayed in triple comfort room and the room was facing the street, but it didn't bother me (but it might disturb light sleepers). The room was clean, bed was nice and bathroom/WC was clean and modern. I also... More

Everything I wanted for a short stay at a very affordable price: big and nicely decorated room, very quiet at night (my room was facing the hotel’s backyard, second floor), comfortable bed, fresh linen and extra pillows, wi-fi Internet, everything worked just fine in my room, reasonable breakfast. I am satisfied. Importantly, very nice and welcoming personnl. The hotel is... More

Hotel is an good location to travel inside Berlin’s central areas as well as for connecting to Tegel and Shonefeld airport, and in general it is a good value for the money. Extra large room, good bath room and healthy breakfast, keeping in mind the really budget room rate we paid. Even though the hotel is situated in central Berlin... More

I definitely do not recommend this hotel, there are better options around. The internet is NOT working, bad mattress and pillows worse. Terrible smell of dust. And the elevator is horrible and outdated.

On arrival in the room the first thing me and my partner noticed was the distinct smell of dust. Bearing in mind that Germany is not an exotic country, a proper duvet would have been nice rather than 2 single padded bed sheets. On top of this, the pillows are awful, 2 bags of wool where when laid upon you... More
