I was here for three nights and loved it. Staff were very friendly and happy to help. Cecile in particular was great! I had the buffet breakfast each day and it was excellent. Plenty to choose from and very delicious. Location is great. You can walk to most sights otherwise there are S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations close by. I could... More

As hotels go this place is pretty basic, though the rooms are clean and quiet. The point of this place though is the combination of the extremely low price and the fantastic location I'd recommend it if your on a tight budget or just want to save the pennies for Berlins great nightlife

I stayed here with 24 students and 3 colleagues. Our stay was well prepared by the staff by e-mail and when we arrived rather early all our rooms were ready, as were the room keys. All the room keys had the names printed on them. The staff was very friendly it didn't matter if they manned the reception, the breakfast... More

I stayed one night and the room was a little bit dusty and only one thin clean blanket available. The other blanket on the bunk bed looked dirty and old. Luckily the heater was warm so I used the only blanket and my friend used none. The room was not so small for a minimalist style hotel and the price... More

This hotel has a great location (one block from S-Bahn Anhalter Bahnhof) and people in frontdesk were very kind and friendly. However, should improve room cleanness: sheets and floor were dirty -was very discusting-. Wifi was terrible.

I do not want to be too negative about this hotel - it is clearly marketed as a Budget hotel and so expectations must be realistic. It is well kept, clean and efficient with very good cleaning staff who reset the rooms each day. However, it is hard to sleep with one very small, weak pillow. It would be so... More

We stayed in the Ibis for 3 nights in November and found it comfortable and clean. It was very easy to find and very close to a few of the most popular attractions. There was a supermarket around the corner and a few restaurants nearby. The only issue we had is that one lift was broken and the other kept... More

Hotel is great if you are on a budget. The rooms are clean , beds are comfy and the shower is powerful. Reception staff were very welcoming. Located about 100 metres from Anhalter Bahnof on the S2 line and a 5 minute walk from Potsdamer Platz. Topography of Terror and remaining part of Berlin Wall are less than 5 minutes... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
