I did not even sleep there. I just asked via e-mail (in German) if it's true that the Internet connection did not work and all I got was a copy & paste answer. When I asked for more details the owner just ignored me. As a result, I decided to cancel the reservation (luckly without paying a cent) and searched... More

We have spent just one night with my girlfriend during visiting Bread and Butter fair trade. Was easy to find it out, but it is not a hotel - seems more like very cheap guest house. The room where we overnighted was pretty large but a bit fusty - I don´t remember how much we have paid but it was... More

Is this really a hotel or is it the front for some kind of money laundering? Almost non-existent wi-if connection; thin walls that didn't insulate us from the noise from the hallway and other rooms; no fridge; located on a busy arterial road and needed to catch a train a couple of stops in order to do anything remotely interesting....

I only booked a room in this hotel, because my normal hotel had no vacancies at the time, and this place was close to the agency I needed to visit. I booked based on a quick look at the pictures on the rooms on the internet... First for the positive: The staff was quite friendly and helpful, and - considering... More

The hotel room that I stayed in needed urgent re-decoration to bring it into line with modern standards of privacy and style coordination. Lace curtains did not hang even or even match; ditto for curtains that should have closed completely but didn't, thus leaving gaps and giving the impression of a cheap student flat. Colors were mismatched as were styles... More

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel has a pretty ok standard. The rooms are clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel is a nice place to sleep, and the area is quiet. A walk (10-15 mins) away you can find restaurants and cafés with delicious food and nice atmosphere.

We were a bit sceptical of this hotel at first because of the reviews! But we arrived early in the morning and they put us in our room straight away! It is a converted apartment house but it's great! The room was spacious and clean and had large windows! Breakfast was included but very basic! Staff very friendly but has... More

Not really what I'd call a hotel... More like a converted house (which isn't entirely the hotel; there are normal apartments there too). There is a small breakfast room / reception, which isn't open past 6pm. We arrived at night and so had to collect keys from a safe on the street. Rooms are then accessed through another door down...

I would not stay here again, as this hotel is not very well kept: Dark, ugly furniture. Bathroom OK, but could definitely be much cleaner (esp. dirty shower curtain). I showered wearing my flipflops! Breakfast does not have much coice (no ham or fresh cheese), only bread, jam, and boiled eggs. Hotel is rather far away from everything, in contrast... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
