We stayed here 3 nights in July with our daughter. Location is excellent - walk to shops, restaurants, zoo, U-Bahn, buses, etc. The rooms are all different sizes and configurations from what I could see - we were very happy with our room. It was large, with a balcony overlooking the Ku-Damm and a nice bathroom. We had an extra... More

Personel friendly, breakfast perfect, rooms, lobby etc very clean. The location Kurfurstendamm is one of our favourits. But stil i am disapointed about two things. 1. we were with 4 people and by the reservation of the rooms I asked for rooms nearby. But room 264 isn't close to room 257. 2. 264 is to small. It was my room... More

My Average rating has everything to do with this hotel billing itself as a 4 Star establishment. If that's what it is... the three stars is what it deserves. The rooms had a dated quality to them. Despite high ceilings, the decor seemed a bit tacky and in need of some renovation. Otherwise the rooms were clean, the breakfast was... More

The place is clean, quiet and has a great location. The only misgiving I have is that we thought the breakfast buffet was included in the price. We checked out and then found out that the breakfast was 7.50 Euros per person. The buffet was still worth it, but I wish we had been informed beforehand.

The location of Hotel California is excellent and the foyer makes a good impession. When I checked into my room I was amazed that there was no air conditioning and the room was very hot and stuffy. A four star hotel with no air conditioning is not just on. My visit was totally spoilt by the stuffy nature of the... More

We had an enjoyable time at the California when we stayed for four nights in late June/early July. Our second floor room was clean and airy, but I think that without air-con, it would be uncomfortable once temperatures get over 25 degrees. The room faced the inner courtyard, which meant that we could sleep with both windows open without traffic... More

So me and my wife spent 3 nights in berlin as part of our honeymoon to europe countries and we checked into this hotel as a recommendation from our travel agent here in malaysia. Everything else was fine apart frm these two things that i think could use a bit more than just improvement in the future. When we first... More

Wi fi was OK for me. Unbelievably powerful shower. Breakfast was average, probably better value to go to a local cafe if you have the choice. Nice clean quiet room, but no aircon. One to watch out for with the summer coming.

Very good location.The minus was the very poor internet connection that kept breaking down.Really every day and the reception could not do much.Also the shower door was broken and kept falling off the rail.This was reported to the reception on at least two occasions and despite assurances that it would be fixed nothing happened for the duration of our stay.

Lovely place, good atmosphere, great cocktails. If we were not already staying nearby would definitely go there again. Friendly staff and nice outside area to sit and watch 5the world go by. All that was missing was The Eagles!!
