Great staff very nice and kind people, considering the very strategic position, you can take the metro in 1minute by walk, the price is quite good!! The rooms are small but anyway absolutely confortable, breakfast will be better when become more international and not only in german style, but is ok and the staff is polite. Thanks Luca A

The price reflects the quality fairly well. Our room was small but adequate. Our 'double bed' was two singles pushed together using two single duvets. But we were warm and comfortable. Everything worked and the 12 hours free WiFi was more than enough for our five night stay. Breakfast is a continental style buffet in a lovely sunny room. All... More

The staff is very friendly and polite. The hotel is not close to the center of the city but is really well communicated with public transport. The rooms are small and the decoration is outdated but I thinks is not a big problem, the only issue I saw in the room is that there's not a good light in the... More

A basic hotel with a little bit outdated design and furnishing. The place really needs a renovation, especially the windows. All rooms looking to a busy crossing. When you book, it is clear and obvious. But not obvious, if you close the windows, the noise won’t be decreased in your room and the same time the room starts to get... More

A good backpacker's hotel at most, dark and shabby, no AC, heating or anything, I freezed all night and the cold woke me up the next morning. Of course the rates are interesting but still. I would have changed hotels right away (booked for 2 nights) but I had an event to attend, so I stayed there and changed in... More

This hotel is quite basic but was convenient for visiting friends nearby. The subway is right across the road and that was also convenient. One or two good eating places are nearby especially a very nice 'alternative' vegetarian cafe/restaurant a couple of streets away. Our room was right at the top of the building and was very hot - no... More

A double booking had been made and I cancelled one of the bookings. It was obviously a mistake. When I realized what had happened I called the very same day of arrival and offered to pay for two night, but they charged 80% of the whole week and the manager was nowhere to be found until a week later. I... More

I arrived in the middle of the afternoon. Even though I had printed off my booking information, it still took them a long time to find my room. When the receptionist asked what I was doing in Berlin, I answered that I had come to take language classes to improve my German. She turned to the other staff member and... 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.
