Well, since I paid Euro 31.50, for a night in Berlin, I can't complain I suppose. Location was acceptable. It's a micro room, very bad linen. The pillow and Duvet were really below par, quite ordinary. The bathroom basin was 5 inch wide one, hard to keep the water inside. Lots of cafes and restaurants around. The check-in was easy... More

I've stayed in this pension 3-4 times and been happy with it every time. First time it was very outdated but the staff were nice. The last time I visited (2013 spring) they had updated the decorior and the staff spoke English. Also the rooms had been updated, it also explains the price changes. I could stay here every time...

Great if you're looking for a bed at a really cheap price. Our bedroom included a bathroom, so please, don't compare it to hostels! Wifi didn't worked at all, let's say Berlin is really bad about wireless lan, but whatever. Really close to the underground line, and the street is really cute and full of nice places to have food!

this is not a hotel, it's a pension. very simple place, but clean. The internet conection work really well. the biggest problem, which I consider really really bad, is the smell on this place. The mattress are too soft, and also not comfortable. I would not recomend this place, I'm sure there are some better options.

Fine for visiting Berlin on a budget, but not comfortable and very loud. I was in Berlin for work and stayed in room 10. I didn't sleep much as you can hear everything from the surrounding rooms and the large pipe running across the ceiling seemed to creak every ten minutes throughout the night. The mattress was ok and the... More

This is a good place to stay on a budget. The place was clean and pretty central, only a few stops from Alexanderplatz. There are plenty of bars and places to eat within walking distance in the district of Friedrichshain. We were give our key and reception seemed to close pretty early so it's basically like having your own place.... More

This hotel/pension WAY exceeds it's reviews. I recommed Insor, a cheap and very good choise if you're on a budget, and like to be among the locals. The place is well situated in the relaxed and affordable Friedrischain area of Berlin. Not trendy or city, but cosy and very friendly, with lots of shops and a great variety of food.... More

The Staff are extremely rude and the smell coming from this place is terrible. It made me sick for days. I think their were rats here and I would avoid this place at all costs. Cancel your bookings while you can.

My husband and I (27 & 28) stayed at the "hotel" Insor for four nights and I have never been in such a sleazy place bevor. The photos on the Insor homepage are totally misleading, and have nothing in common with the real rooms. The rooms lay ground floor directly facing the bustling street, some are facing the courtyard (as... More

We booked three nights at Insor through Hotels.com sending my creditcard info to Insor. Since we missed the ferry from Denmark we were going to be arriving late in berlin, so we called Insor and told them this. They told us, that they would leave our key in the restaurant on the other side of the street. When we arrived... More
