The East City City Hotel is perfectly situated with a view of the East Side Gallery (remnant of the Berlin Wall with amazing artwork). Unfortunately, our view was of the Sanitation Service parking lot on the other side of the hotel. In addition, the room was small, the carpet was stained, bathroom tiles were cracked and there was very little... More

This hotel is perfectly located. Just 5 minuts walking from U-Bahn Warschauer Station, S-Bahn or O2 Arena where we saw Beyonce show. Sightseeng double-decker bus stop is just 10 steps away from hotel doorstep. Hotel bar open 24/7. Breakfast was not overhelming but enough. I assume if you want to have hotter breakfast - you probably should presence yourself much... More

Room was clean and good size. The bed was a little short for me and you can't move the side table out of the way (resulting in me hitting my head in my sleep oops) but otherwise a great room. Directly opposite the East Side Gallery and you can see parts of it if you sit near a window at... More

I have been returning to this hotel for the last ten years. It's convenient--a moderate walk from the Ostbahnhof and a short hop from U and S stations on nearby Warschauer Strasse. But the East Side is also an independent enterprise and totally unique. It has character. You feel the pulse of Berlin here. The building (as the very gregarious... More

Our go-to place in Berlin. Very clean and comfortable (fantastic FIRM beds), relatively inexpensive for a big city, fresh and ample buffet breakfast, good coffee, and an in-hotel bar that stays open really late and is a cozy place to end the day. Mostly youthful or young-at-heart clientele. Just around the corner (really about 90 seconds!) from trains and buses,... More

We popped in for a drink while we were checking out the East Side gallery and honestly thought the hotel was a sleazy motel due to the soft porn pic's everywhere. Thankfully, it turned out to be a decent place for a beer, non sleazy, nice friendly barman although a little pricey.

We booked this hotel for our stay while running the Berlin Marathon in 2011. The location is fine, its near clubs and restaurants although a little outside the center of Berlin. Its very close to transport so no compaints. The rooms are basic but clean. My only complaint would be that there are no blackout blinds so you wake up... More

We found a great deal for this hotel. I was aware that it was a little out of town, but for the price we were willing to compromise. The rooms are very clean, quality of towels good - in fact the quality of the room was better than many 4 star hotels I have stayed in previously. It's very close... More
