The worst experience ever in Berlin!!! As soon as I arrived with my 11 month baby, luggage and stroller, nobody welcomed me, not even a smile, not to mention they didn't even care to assist me with luggage and baby. For any request the answer was negative, even for a glass of water- they said I had to eat in... More

End up staying in this hotel because it was one of the few that made reservation for less than 5 days during the new years eve, and would not recommend for anyone. Far from the city, wasn't able to find the hotel with the directions they gave after the reservation, only after a nice lady that lived close by walked... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on the internet. I´m very sorry that we failed to meet your expectations. Our hotel is located via public transport only 20 minutes from downtown. With the Tram M6 do you go directly to Alexanderplatz. With best regards from Berlin Christian Werner Hempel director More

First of all, I was there for New Years Eve, and first thing you can notice is the staff, they were polite and open to the visitors, they printed out my reservation tickets that I got on my e-mail without a hesitation and with a smile on their faces. In one point I had problem with wi-fi(which is 8 euros... More

I visited hotel last Christmas holidays. In general, I liked this hotel. There were a lot of keys from our room - everyone had one of them (in Amsterdam there was another situation, we had only one key and so had to walk together). Our room was clean and there wasn't a bad smell inside it. But the view from... More

My ecquaintance with this hotel started with a very long way to it. I knew that it is outside the city but it's really difficult to reach it.

We stayed here for a very cheap 4 day break to Berlin. It is out of the city BUT it only takes a 15 minute tram to Alexanderplatz to get here... A taxi also only costs ~12 euros to get from Alexanderplatz to the hotel too (as the trams don't run from 4am - 5:30am - just when we needed... More

We stayed at The Kolumbus Hotel for three nights and can honestly say our room No 412a was lovely, could have benefited from tea/coffee making facilities.plenty shops around the Hotel. It is a ten minute walk from the tram which runs about every 4 mins, and about 20 minutes into centre. No complaints at all, plenty to eat for breakfast,... More

Berlin is a large city. This hotel is in the suburbs, but wherever you are, it takes time to get around. The beds were firm, the shower excellent. It was busy as it is an athletic's hotel, lots of groups staying. The breakfast was adequate, ask the staff for scrambled eggs, they are prepared to your liking. The hotel is... More
