“Near the Tegel Airport, is a basic, clean, good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

This is a basic, clean, no frills place, which, if you're on a budget and need to be at the airport by 5:30, can be a good deal. You can take the low, non-refundable advance price on their Web site. The frequent bus 128 to the airport stops at the door. Restaurant prices are high, but there are some alternatives cafes in walking distance.

Room Tip: The usual standard that you get from Dorint.

I stayed here at the beginning of the year and was very disappointed.

Firstly the biggest point is that it is at the end of the runway at Tegel and landing planes are 150 to 200 ft above the hotel so there is a constant noise of landing planes.
It is great if you wanted to see who makes the tyres on the Air berlin 737 but that is about it.
The hotel needs a refurb, the beds are poor and facilities are poor and menu choice is poor.
Poor in room entertainment.

But the staff are friendly and welcoming.

This is not the usual standard that you get from Dorint.

If you are on a tight budget then it is ok, but if it was my bucks i would stay else where.

Whilst it hardly sits comfortably with the high end luxury standards of many Dorint hotels, pricewise it can't be beaten, with rooms on a weekend at 35 EUR in October, breakfast not included.

It may be way outside the centre, but its almost next door to a U-bahn station with trains every 10 minutes to the centre, a journey of less than 15 minutes. The station and area felt totally safe, even late at night. Its also just a couple of stops on the airport bus from Tegel. There are lots of snack kiosks (currywurst), ethnic restaurants (Turkish, Indian, Chinese) and fast food joints (Burger King) outside the station for dining.

The hotel itself may be on the flight path to Tegel but I never heard the planes from my room, which although basic, was clean. Staff were wonderfully friendly.

I'd much rather stay here for next to nothing and buy an all-day travelcard to commute to/from the centre, than stay in an expensive central hotel.

Our flight was cancelled, so we were put up by the airline at this hotel. It is about 5 mins from the airport, but also only a 1 minute walk to the U-Bahn, you are only 15 miutes from the centre of Berlin. The hotel is pleasnat and very clean. The resturant serves a really nice dinner and breakfast. It is situated on the flight path of the airport but it didnt disturb us too much. The rooms are quite basic but are very spacious and clean.

This is a basic, clean, no frills place, which, if you're on a budget and need to be at the airport by 6:00, can be a good deal--if you take the low, non-refundable advance price on their Web site. My room was on the top floor, yet the airplane noise (they do fly right overhead) was truly negligible. The safe in the room doesn't work (there's supposedly one at reception); the alarm you set on the TV does. The frequent bus to the airport (7 min.; tix from the driver) stops at the door. (Forget breakfast; buy a sandwich after security.) The subway, a safe 5-minute walk, has you downtown in 13.

This hotel is in a poor location, directly on the flight path to the airport with planes passing about 100 meters above the hotel almost constantly - unless you live on a flight path back home there is no possible way you would get a good night sleep or any quiet. Of course, sleep is a bit rough as the bed is not comfortable and pillows are terrible. The bathroom is not much better. The hotel is also located a good distance from anything worth going to in Berlin and there is nothing of substance in walking distance. With all these I would expect it to be a lower price - all in all it should have been better for the money.

As the name say, the Dorint Berlin Airport Tegel hotel implies, it is near the Tegel Airport. To be more precise, the hotel is about .25 miles from the end of the runway. While this would normally not be an issue with hotels that had adequate soundproofing, this hotel does not. The noise of the jets screaming directly overhead from 6:00am to late into the night makes it difficult to relax, get work done, or even get some rest during those hours. If you do stay here, remember to bring ear plugs!

When it comes to the room, it was pretty disgusting. The bedding appeared clean and fresh, but the sofa was so stained and dirty, I was afraid to go near it. It looked like something from a crime scene. I've attached pictures so one doesn't think I'm exaggerating a bit.

The room size was OK, but it has a rather weird layout. The bed wasn't parallel to the walls, but angled between the two. Look at the pictures to see what I am describing. To make matters worse, the desk area had no power outlets, which made using a laptop there a bit of an annoyance. The internet was very pricey at 24.95 Euro per 24 hours.

Finally the neighborhood appeared to be mostly an industrial type area. At night it was very dark and didn't seem like a place you would want to be wandering around.

The hotel rate was 90 Euro, which is a decent rate for Berlin. There are certainly better located, cleaner, similarly priced hotels in the area.
