It is a small school hotel well-managed. It is central located and close to the subway. Very simple but clean. The room is very small but you can sleep weel and take a good shower. Not for more than 3 nights.

We booked this hotel for a city trip to Berlin. When we arrived, there were no parking spots left. When we asked about parking, the only employee there was had issues communicating with us in English and didn't understand us. When a spot opened, we managed to fit, although it was a tight squeeze; the parking lot is very small.... More

Booked this hotel due its closeness to the U-Bahn - (Kurfurstenstrasse) and (Bulowstrasse) meaning you are only 10 mins from Potsdamer Platz. I stayed for 3 nights at a cost of E87 without breakfast and I opted for a room without a bathroom however was given a room which was en-suite. The room was small but perfectly adequate for my...

Rooms are quite small but equipment is ok. The hotel's location is quite close to Potsdamer Platz, and the subway stations Bülowstraße (U2) and Gleisdreieck (U1, U2), which was the primary reason for me to choose it. I didn't book breakfast, so I came out with quite an adequate rate.

Just 3 U-Bahn stations from Potsdamer Platz, hotel Academy offers budget accommodation - it is not easy to find accommodation in the hotel in the center of berlin below 50€ (breakfast incl). Reception desk is staffed to 7 PM, you can afterwards enter hotel with code. My room was claustrophobic small - I could not even open the door to... More

Academy hotel stands out as a clean and tidy hotel. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff were hospitable. Breakfast was nice. The area was central but yet quiet. We highly recommend Academy hotel for an afforable Berlin vacation.

Good location, only about 300m walking from U kurfurstur strasse, gleisdreieck is even closer, but we found no path there. Good friendly staff, good breakfast, good location. Victoria bar is near, so you can spend the saved money on cocktails.

This hotel is perfect for a visit to Berlin. It is used as a training establishment for young trainees but superbly run. It is not manned 24hrs a day but you always have access by means of coded doors. Off street parking is available but it is not secure. The rooms are exceptionally clean and spacious and have everything you... More

We booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor recommendation, and were very happy with it. The atmosphere is homey and friendly. The room is specious and pleasant. It is true that the hot water does not last very long and that there is some noise from the u-bahns passing quite close to the hotel, but all in all this is a... More

I stayed three times at this small hotel (a five store building), because it is close to a training course where I go regularly. It is nice, no doubt. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, cozy atmosphere. All the rooms are little different. If you are lucky, you will get the jacuzzi room (there is only one, I think,at the... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
