“Cheap but Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This hotel is comfortable and spotlessly clean. It's basic, but it is also very reasonably priced for Berlin. We paid an additional Euro 10 each for a very good continental breakfast. The service at reception was very efficient. The hotel is outside the city centre but the U-Bahn station is nearby which has regular services and you can be at AlexanderPlatz in 15 minutes. There is also a nearby S-Bahn that provides transportation to wider Berlin including a direct line to Schonefeld Airport. The hotel is in an interesting location in the former DDR, not far by train from the East Side Gallery and close to great cafes and bars just a 10-15 minute walk down Gurtelstrasse. Recommended for a cheap alternative in an expensive city.

Room Tip: A little noisy being so close to the S-Bahn and trams but if you can get a room overlooking the stre...

Georghof is a very beautiful hotel. The room is big, clean, decorated and very confortable. The bathroom is modern and has a great shower.
They offer free wifi and paid breakfast.
Despite not being so close to the center, you can easily take the metro to get wherever you want.

Last year stayed at the Georghof Hotel for two nights. We had a double room which was pretty spacious but not perfectly clean - there was a thick layer of dust on the topside of curtains.

When we arrived there was a blond girl(russian nationality?) at the reception and she was quite rude and unhelpful. On our second day was there a german girl who was nice and polite.

The area was ok. There was a big shopping centre nearby and some bars and coffee shops as well.

P.S. The really good thing at the hotel was their sauna.

The room was cheap. Location is pretty good. S-bahn passes by near, didn't bother me.

Coffee maker was dirty. Bathroom and bed was clean. Check-in took a bit long, because of reception mistakes. The room was really cold, slept in my sweate. Very bad Internet. Very bad. Cleaning person walked in while I was in bed.

Overall, the place is cheap. Disorganized in many ways. But the location is not bad. 2/5

I stayed in this hotel many times. but this time i was was a bit disappointed. I paid 90 Euros. Compare where i was stayed 1st night - Hilton, this hotel was cheap with no facilities. Breakfast was ok :) Staff helpful. Nearest station is Frankfurt Alle - easy to get Aleksandre platz, just 10 -15 min :)

This hotel i choose only because i had auction in Estrella hotel just 3 stops from hotel, also to get airport Schonefeld is fast, just 30 min :)

Shops facilities is limited, just one Shopping centre near by.

Hotel has buisness centre, room was clean, bathroom a bit small.. otherwise stay was wonderfull.

Was there for new year's weekend with friends. Rooms are very small, old and not clean. Doublebeds are too small for two people! The hostel is right next to the train line and you can hear it. I woul definitely not recommend this hotel, especially not for families.
People at the reception weren't nice.

Room Tip: Rooms for 2 are really small. Doublebeds are too small for 2 people.

To begin, the room were given in the "hostel" was about 10ft by about 12ft for 3 people in single beds. There was nowhere to store our luggage or items so our items had to be strewn around.

Secondly, I have never in my life encountered staff who really did not care or know what customer service actually means. We complained 3 times about the fact our room was damp that spread further on the floor each day to the point when you walked on it you had to wear shoes otherwise it would soak through your socks. One particular member of staff was very rude. She kept saying "speak to the housemaster", "it's nothing to do with us" "there's nothing we can do" and then told us that the housemaster was waiting for us when in fact we had to wait about for them to turn up which they did not do.

We finally spoke to a member of staff who listened and on the 4th day she spoke to the manager who moved us from the room a cleaner, slightly better room that wasn't damp.

Lastly, there was a used condom still in the room we initially had hanging from the ceiling which had been there since before we checked in there.

This is not a hostel. There's no kitchen. No storage room. There's so many more better actual hostels in the area and I haven't ever felt the need to review a place (unless it was really good) but this place was infuriating.

The manager gave us 1/2 the money back for the time spent in the initial room which wasn't bad.

The initial bedroom we had, within hours of us being moved out, had been ripped apart by workers and the room was being heavily aired out which makes me think it was never fit for purpose in the first place.

Please avoid this hotel and "hostel".
