“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

I stayed at this hotel because it was close to a business meeting, and most other hotels in the area were booked out. It was ok, the room was clean and the staff were very professional, but it was rather soulless - I felt like I was staying in a hospital - and the breakfast area had all the charm of a cheap cafeteria.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2010

This hotel is very near the underground and makes it easy to travel around. The rooms are not too big but clean and the beds are just soooooo comfy. Lovely shower rooms look like they have just been renewed. The only downfall is the bar, or the other end of the reception area with four stools, they could easily convert part of one of the breakfast rooms for evening use. All the staff are very friendly and helpfull and all speak good English. Also the Berlin underground is very safe clean and frequent. Impressed with the whole city. Try the Spitteleck to eat, its just round the corner, ate there every night after we found it.

The 3 *** Best Western am Spittelmarkt hotel is 200 metres from the U-bahn underground, in a quiet side street. There is a tapas bar and a bakery over the road, and good restaurants in the Nikolai Quarter, or viertel, are two stops away on the tube. It is a new hotel, with friendly and helpful reception staff, a small bar to the side, and some of the rooms look out over the rooftops to the TV tower in the Alexanderplatz.
Our room was at the back of the hotel - it's worth asking for one this side, as there is building work going on outside the front. The room was large, with comfortable chairs and bed, a safe, and a well-equipped bathroom with a powerful shower. One little niggle; you have to manoevre the folding showerscreen so it fits onto the bath rim as otherwise the floor gets soaked. This can be a little tricky, and we recommended the hotel to change the screen to a fixed type.

Breakfast is served from 7 to 11, and is fantastic! A huge selection of cereals, cold meats, hot meals, wonderful bread and many juices and hot drinks are available.The breakfast is in the lower ground floor is a series of different rooms with different themes, such as French Bistro, Alpine room, Berlin lounge etc, each having its own character. The breakfast really sets one up for a day's sightseeing.
At the end of one's stay, there is a luggage room if you have a late flight.
Spittelmarkt U-bahn is so central that it is easy to return to collect baggage later. To get to Tegel airport, stay on the same tube line until the Zoo stop, or Ernst-Reuter platz one stop further, and then catch the fast X9 bus straight to the airport.

Stayed for 4 nights and found the location very convenient for the underground and getting around Berlin. It is only about a 15-20 minute walk to both Potsdamer Platz and Alexander Platz and within walking distance to numerous restaurants. There is construction around the hotel but our room didn't face the street, we heard no noise so it was not a problem. We did use the bakery across the street for baked goods for breakfast, it was very good. The room did not have coffee/tea making facilities when we arrived but we were provided with them upon request at the front desk. We felt this hotel was very good value for money.

We stayed at the Best Western for a couple nights during a Berlin visit. The Hotel located at Spittelmarkt with the Subway right around the corner to Line 2 which connects the Alexanderplatz to potsdamer platz easily, but even when you're walking it's only 15-20 minutes to get to either. Unfortunately there is construction right across the Hotel which probably will be there for a while longer. The rooms are nice. Hardly any decor, but clean. The staff didn't impress me as much. Check in is not possible before 2 p.m. they are not really able to store luggage if you arrive early and you unfortunately nobody will greet you when walking into the Lobby or restaurant first un like other hotels I've stayed at. They offer breakfast for 9 Euros and have a small computer in the restaurant for surfing the internet, but very open to others. They have a small amount of parking spaces and there is a bakery right across the street for a cheap breakfast.
All in all. It's Berlin and you won't be spending much time in the hotel so for beeing close to everything by Subway it's a good place to stay considering you could be spending double for less in a fancy neighborhood.

The room was huge - easily fitting two teenage boys and me. Flat screen TV, fabulous bathroom - modern and clean as a whistle. BUT the construction zone that surrounds it is a pain at the moment. Our room, with insulating windows was at the front of the hotel and at 0630 the trucks started arriving and then it was on for the rest of the day. Subway is close by, and around the corner 9as directed by the reception staff) is a super cheap genuine german pub style restaurant that we all enjoyed enormously. In 12 months, when all the noise is gone, it will be far more appealing.
