I stayed in this hotel while visiting Berlin's Christmas markets and found it was superb. Location was good, only a short walk to the train station and quite easy to get to and from the airport. The general appearance of the establishment is well appointed both inside and out, rooms are spotless too and the beds are extremely comfortable with... More

We stayed at the Hotel for a few nights in February, lovely spacious and clean room/bathroom. Very helpful staff and the breakfast had something for everyone from continental to traditional German. Internet free in your room (as it should be in every hotel). The only draw back would be that the TV stations are obviously German or other European channels... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in February. The reason we booked this hotel was the proximity to the O2 stadium where I had booked tickets for a concert. As it turned out, we couldn't have found a better place for sightseeing, restaurants and public transport to see all that Berlin has to offer. The O2 is 15 mins walk... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel. Check in was quick and our room was spacious with a large bathroom, toiletries, etc. There was a good sized fridge but bring your own travel kettle as tea making facilities not included. The restaurant was very stylish and we enjoyed a large selection of breakfast items including... More

Can't fault anything about this hotel, we really enjoyed our stay here. The room was large and had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic and had something for everyone. I only used the fitness equipment once, but it was fine. It's only five minutes walk from Warschauer Strasse S + U Bahn and... More

I stayed at Upstasboom for 2 nights in February whilst on a city break to Berlin. The location was good if you want to stay in Friedrichshain which is more of a trendy/arty area with many cafes and restaurants. The hotel is also about a 10-15 minute walk from the river and the Berlin wall East side gallery. 2 metro... More

We stayed at this hotel for four days in December to celebrate New Year's Eve .The hotel is great and the location is perfect near by are an U-banh and S-banh station.The staff is very helpful and breakfast was great. One minus - the room was to hot but other wise we were very happy to stay in this hotel.

Stayed here for New Year 2014/15. Having read the reviews we were expecting something pretty special. Unfortunately though there were some things that let this hotel down. Firstly the positives: helpful & friendly staff, good breakfast and everywhere spotlessly clean. The hotel location though was disappointing and not as good as others we have stayed at in Berlin. There were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a bed and breakfast basis. Hotel was really comfortable, clean and very friendly. It was however in a rather run down part of the city.

Stayed here when going to a concert at Astra Kulturhaus, only a ten minute walk away. The location is good, lots of small shops and restaurants in walking distance. Not high street shopping though, for that you'd have to go down town. But for more alternative shops (like used records) it was great! Wifi in the hotel was actually decent... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
