Four nights at this most comfortable and well-positioned hotel were barely enough to discover all that amazing Berlin has to offer. We said, time and again, how fortunate we were to have chosen this hotel as our base. One has no grounds to find fault with any aspect of these accommodations - save for the fact we found the shower... More

I discovered this hotel just after the Berlin Wall came down, and I have stayed there over the years for both business and pleasure. I remember it originally as a small property located right on the Kurferstendamm with a lobby on the second floor and a small breakfast room. Now, it's a large property with a beautiful lobby, well appointed... More

Our third visit to Berlin, and due to a mix up in plans we needed one night at very short notice. We already knew this area, but this hotel exceeded all our expectation. Even the constant playing of the album in the foyer is okay. Rooms are great - a bit small, but can live with that. Wifi. Easy access.... More

Stayed at the hotel California, in February, for 5 nights! Very nice room on the front looking down on the boulevard which would have been lovely in the Spring/ Summer months. Comfy bed. No fridge. No tea or coffee facilities. Flat screen TV but limited English channels unless one paid for sky channels? Impressive breakfast menu and good room service.... More

What more can you ask of a hotel than it has comfortable beds and a great breakfast? This hotel provides both. My friend declared the bed the comfiest she has ever slept in in a hotel. The room was an average hotel room, beds, wardrobe, room safe, en-suite bathroom etc. But clean, and cleaned every day. The staff were very... More

this hotel was one of a number we considered on our five night break to Berlin in mid January and we ultimately chose it due to location. The room was very spartan although quiet and the usual free safe was a plus but definitely NOT four stars. the breakfast as all have commented was resonable with a varied selection of... More
