We got a last-minute deal for this hotel, when our original lodging plans for our family vacation to Berlin fell through. The hotel and the room was comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was really nice with plenty of choices for the whole family. The area around the hotel is a mixture of run down and just getting fixed up. The... More

Location good for sightseeing as hotel close to local train station, maximum 10 minutes walk. However we had great difficulty finding good restaurants in the neighbourhood, and for this reason only, we would stay more central if visiting again. Neighbourhood somewhat run down and lots of graffiti, but we never felt unsafe. Initially we were in in standard double room.... More

Stayed here in December with a friend. Nice hotel 10 mins from train U-bahn/S-bahn into central Berlin. Good sized, clean room with pleasant staff on reception. Good choice of breakfast buffet. Nice to stay out of the City centre and in East Berlin for the contrast. 15/20 mins walk from East Side Art Gallery (longest stretch of Berlin Wall).

All you need for an ok stay but nothing more. The hotel is quite old. Furniture is outdated and temperature cannot be controlled (radiators). Although very clean, overall the experience is pretty basic. Avoid the rooms just above the hotel entrance. There are a lot deliveries during the night and they can give you sleepless nights. Good breakfast.

We chose this hotel largely based on its location, as I had heard that Friedrichshain is a good neighbourhood to stay in, and we were not disappointed. The bedroom was spacious and warm (really too warm!), nice and clean with a good hot shower. Our 'double' bed was two twins pushed together with two separate single duvets which wasn't really...

A little to the east of town, this is a good choice for spacious rooms in a 1990s-era hotel (about 200m N of Warschauer Str S-Bahnd). It's got everything you could want, including a reasonable breakfast, although the restaurant only has a limited menu at weekends and service wasn't altogether brilliant the time I was there.

Upstalboom was a great place to stay although it didnt start that way. We arrived in our room and were 'treated' to an awful odor. We left for a couple of hours hoping the smell would dissipate but arrived to an intensified stench. We informed the front desk and they assessed the odor and immediately moved and upgraded us.

We chose this hotel based on positive reviews about its location, and it couldn't have been better. Really easy to get in from the airport (S9 train to Ostkreuz, then get any S Bahn train one stop to Warschauerstrasse), and just a five minute walk from S and U Bahn stations which will take you all over the city. It's... More

Stayed for 3 nights in September 2013. Room was adequate and very clean. The hairdryer blew up on our first morning but it was replaced immediately. The breakfast is superb. Not the best location for accessing the city centre - a 10 minute walk to the u-bahn or s-bahn station but its a very quiet neighborhood.
