Stayed in Berlin for a few nights on a family tour of Europe in 9 days. Really wanted to visit the major landmarks that Berlin has to offer. This hotel is situated in a very convenient location to trams and train services running into central Berlin, at most a 10 minute trip. From there you can travel anywhere on the... More

The location is very good, 5 minutes walk from Schonhauser Alee Station which connects directly to Schonefeld Airport. Many tourist sights can be reached by one train, the others by 2 and the service is very frequent. There are many decent restaurants in the area either in walking distance or 1 stop on the railway. The hotel is a no... More

I stayed in a single room, simple but very clean, a comfortable bed and very good shower and toilet facilities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For € 7 extra you can enjoy a very good breakfast. The hotel is very close to U- and S-Bahn on the Ring. Hotel 103 is not very cosy and it lacks space... More

This hotel has basic rooms but they're comfortable and scrupulously clean. The hotel itself is set back in a lovely courtyard and on main U-Bahn and S-Bahn routes as well as trams. The staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The only minor problem I had was figuring out the lock to the room.

This is an acceptable hotel in Berlin, it was pretty cheap and the hotel itself was pretty nice. However, there were no atmosphere whatsoever. If you are travelling by yourself or even a small group then the Hotel 103 is probably a bit boring and there is no social area to meet anyone. That being said, I acknowledge that for... More

Our stay in the hotel was very pleasant. The hotel is in a pleasant surrounding close to the U-banh. The staff were courteous and helpful, breakfast with enough delicious meals. When we visit Berlin next time, we plan to stay in the Hotel 103 again.

Hotel room was poor, the curtains in the windows weren't wide enough, leaving a considerable part of the window uncovered. We complained to the staff two times but nobody did anything about it. The WiFi is awful, when it's working, because most of the time it isn't. There were no bedside tables, only stools and no power outlets near the... More

Lift : was unreliable. In the evenings, waited for 5 minutes after pressing the button but no lift would arrive. Room : was unbearably hot and windows had to be opened all the time. At night, the staff member would be drinking and talking in the courtyard, making sleeping difficult. Upon checking, room was clean though. Room service was unreliable... 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.
