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. You should find the bus that takes you from underground station to it (but if you come after midnight you should go about 0,5 km to another bus station and take night... More

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

I went to this hotel with friends in a 4 bed room, as I was in Berlin looking for the history. I had a great trip, and it was really easy to get to all the places we went to. The hotel is near a tram station that makes it easy to get to Alexanderplatz train station quickly. However, I... More

Stayed here with 3 of my mates in a 4 person room. Stayed for 1 night to break up the journey on the way east to Latvia. Although it was basic it was clean and tidy with bunk beds. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke better English than we did German which was very useful! Close to... More

Good hotel overal, excellent for the price. Everything you expect from a 3 star hotel. It's located a bit far from central Berlin but it's well connected with m6 tram(15 min to Alexander platz). Also there is a shopping center, supermarket and ikea store near the hotel.
