We had a nice stay at this hotel for the price. We had a room overlooking the courtyard. It is a basic older hotel, the room was fine, there was a nice comfy bed, good wifi connection and the location was nice for sightseeing. Restaurants were a quick walk away and it's a great connection to public transportation. Staff was... More

Hotel California (as it was called previously) was right in the heart of the main shopping area, we were told. It was very nice and the staff were helpful. The breakfast room was too big and felt like a cafeteria, but the food was nice.

When I checked in at 22:00 a very friendly young lady looked after me. I was in my room in no time at all. Any of the staff I came in contact with were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a very nice location. Close to a number of attractions within walking distance. The Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church,... More

For the 4th time we stayed during Traberderby weekend in Hotel California. The Staff people are very kind and give you the idea that you are very welcome. The rooms are good, the breakfast is super. Wificode should be working for 5 machines, but doesn't: no problem at all, you get without any hesitation a sufficient number of free Wifi... More

Hotel located in a convenient central Berlin location which was easily accessible fron Tegel on the 109 bus (€2.70 fare) and a short walking distance from Uhlandstr., Ku'damm and Zoo stations. Room was very comfortable with a generous breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Will visit again. Recommended.

Good rating on booking.com and the friendliest service you can imagine! Room is good and we had kid with us - we checked the room and before we got back up the 3rd bed was made. Full recommendation! German white beer right in the courtyards bar as well.

The hotel was in a great location, although slightly hard to find by car. They can't guarantee parking in the hotel car park so have an agreement with a nearby multi-storey (although secure we felt very uneasy leaving our car as the carpark did not look very desirable!) the hotel itself is everything you need for a short trip to...

Nice, clean and very little noise. One can come and go as you like and the staff are nice and helpful. From the hotel it is easy to walk to the U bahn and even the airbus is close. Nice to walk on Kurfurstendamm.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
