Loved this Charlottenburg pension, where a creaky lift takes you to the third floor of this gorgeous turn of the century building. Chrissy, the owner, is super-friendly. The rooms have tons of style, but don't expect Euro-box amenities. Breakfast -- delicious -- is served in a magnificent dining room, crammed with interesting furniture and decorative touches. Yes, it's all rather... More

On the 3rd floor (with elevator), the owner welcomed me with warmth and friendliness. The rooms are quiet, tidy, clean and comfortably basic. I stayed in a very small single with toilet and sink, and used the shower down the hall (they do have rooms with shower and W/C). My window, as I think most of the rooms do, faced... More

We stayed in this hotel in March last year, and became enthusiastic about its rare qualities. We have shared our impressions in a review. The hotel is located in an impressive building from 1898. Apparently undamaged in the war, it is a beautiful relic of the prosperous years in Berlin from about 1870 to the beginning of World War I.... More

This hotel is located in a fashionable and near central area of Berlin. We stayed 4 nights and the owners were so friendly and very helpful. However, hotel was very tired in appearance. The carpets were old and shabby, the decor and furniture was mismatched, the TV was outdated and the wifi was limited to an area in the passageway,... More

This place has the friendliest host ever! Thank you Chris, you made me feel at home! The rooms were gorgeous! Really retro and quirky and very clean. Great location near shops and restaurants and a great breakfast included! Will stay again if we come to Berlin again.

The hotel Pension Colombus was a great stay. Only a few minutes walk from the train station, the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The owners let us check in early. Really early, like 9am. The room had plenty of space for our needs. No noise when it was bedtime. The breakfast the next day hit the spot. The fine... More

This charming hotel is excellently situated, close to large shops, restaurants and the city open top buses. It is very retro in style and pristine clean. I had a spacious double room to myself, (advertised as classic style room), with a magnificent bathroom and plenty of hot water. Beds were comfortable and breakfast extremely varied and plentiful. The owner was... More

This hotel is in the perfect spot as central base while staying in Berlin. Just five buildings of the K'damm and easily accessible by U- or S-bahn this is an ideal location. From here it is easy to get to all the top museums, tourist spots and great restaurants. The staff, especially Chris, couldn't be more helpful and responsive. Awesome... More

Arriving mid-morning I was met by a very friendly, welcoming hostess. Not only was my room all ready but I was served coffee and cakes in the breakfast room as well. My room faced the yard so it was quiet and I had a few good night's sleep in a comfortable bed. There was a bathroom with toilet and and... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
