This is hotel is conveniently located in a very cool area. The staff is very nice and helpful (they helped us out immediately when we asked to change the room), and the breakfast is good and very fulfilling. Our (second) room was big and bright with a fully equipped kitchen and a balcony. In conclusion, a very nice place to... More

Most people who go to Berlin tend to stay in the Mitte. There's nothing wrong with the Mitte except that it is completely full of tourists and the hotels are overpriced. If you are willing to adventure out just a bit, go to Prenzlaurberg, (P-berg for those who live there), and stay at the Ackselhaus Blue. P-berg is a neighborhood... More

If you want to stay in a place in Berlin that has as much character and creativity as the city itself, stay at Ackselhaus. Each of the rooms are individually designed and have their own theme. While this is not a new concept, the care and innovative design that goes in to each of these rooms (I peeked into another... More

We had a truly wonderful 2 night stay in the Picasso room. Hands down, the Ackselhaus is one of the nicest hotel experiences we've ever had. From the amazingly and helpful front desk staff, the delicious buffet breakfast, the super comfortable bed, to the deep soaking tub - everything about our stay was exceptional.

Stayed here for 3 nights, home from home in a city that doesn't sleep. Best breakfast anywhere. Been coming to Berlin regularly since 1988 and this is the only place I would return to. The honesty minibar system is value for money too. Peter Schmitz

Soulfull room (Kairo) , clean and spacious. We loved it. Really great breakfast and the location is convenient. Great stay for an Urban getaway to Berlin. Really nice backyard that we want to come back and visit in a warmer part of the year. Go stay here!

We spent a long weekend in Berlin in Ackselhaus/Blue home in the middle of Prenzlauer Berg. A perfect location to enjoy Berlin atmosphere in a short period of time, to effectively visit some of the several highlights the city can offer and still to have a relaxing, individual stay in one of the most attractive European metropoles. The location is... More

This hotel is positioned in a quiet street but very nearby to public transport and shops / cafes. The hotel itself is quirky but the rooms are large and immaculately clean. The bathroom was very up to date and had a wonderful shower head and lots of space. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times and made checking in... More

Spent 2 nights here following the Berlin marathon, moving across the city to experience some of East Berlin. Public transport, even with heavy cases, is really easy in Berlin, and we had no trouble finding Ackselhaus with a bit of forward planning. Reception staff were extremely helpful and we were given the "Rome" room which was beautifully decorated and had... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
