“Typical Best Western, not awful, not particularly memorable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

They had bikes to rent, which was good, but the bikes were a little expensive. It's two or three blocks from the train station. The location is excellent to get to the Brandenburg Gate (it's probably 1-2 miles away, much easier if you have a bicycle, but there are nice sights to see on the way, including parks and the Victory Column in the Tiergarten). The room was small, but it had a refrigerator and a nice bathroom. Beware, there is a red light district a few blocks away. The breakfast was good, but Best Westerns in Copenhagen and Kiel we stayed in on the same trip had much more expansive buffet options, so this one was kind of a downer. This was an average experience. Nothing grossly wrong, nothing grossly spectacular.

Good hotel with excellent staff. While the property has a bit of dated feel, the rooms are very comfortable. The staff is excellent- at the lounge , front desk and at the bar. It is also very well located near the U Bahn (5 min walk).

The restaurant staff is also very friendly but the menu needs a makeover.

Room Tip: Go for the President's club rooms.

We enjoyed our stay in President Berlin.
The decoration is somehow dated but the beds are the MOST comfortable that i ever slept on! The location of the hotel is situated between two underground stations and a hop on-hop off bus stop, excellent for going around the city. Situated near the hotel is the KaDeWe, a huge shopping mall with beautiful coffee shops with panoramic views.
Receptionists though should smile a bit more.
WiFi is available for free, just ask the reception.

Room Tip: Ask for front view when booking as ours was at the back of the hotel with view of the skyline and ad...

We would not immediately recommend the hotel as the service of this 4 star hotel was low. The personnel at the reception desk were not service minded. Cleaning of our room had not been done at 3:30 pm. We could not get any assistance from the reception desk to print our boarding cards (we had made our check in ourselves). We asked for at room on the same floor as our family – this could not be met, though we had booked 2 rooms 3 months prior to our stay. WiFi did not work every time. There was no lotion, shampoo or shower gel in the bathroom (which we normally find in 4 star hotels) – only from a “machine on the wall”. The mini bar was empty, there was no soft drinks or the like in the machines in the corridors.

This hotel is in an excellent location close by to Kaufhaus des Westens (KDW). You are in walking distance to Kurfurstendamm and all the excitement the street provides. The room was spacious and standard fare, if you are familiar with Best Western. You can request additional internet codes if you have devices, such as a smart phone, that need to be connected via wireless.

This hotel is conveniently located close to Ka De We mall, main roads and public transport like metro stations and buses. Nice and comfortable rooms, friendly staff and nice breakfast and what else could you ask for? I reserved a standard room but on arrival they upgraded me to a suite room!
This is ideal for travellers looking for value for money budget accommodation.

I would rate this more than average if not for 3 things: there was no safe in our room though the homepage said there should be one, no minibar in room and the vending machines in the hallways were shut down and empty and last (but not least) I contacted the hotel twice via email and once via their homepage during the week leading up to our stay without ever getting an answer. Apart from these things it's a nice hotel, clean and comfortable room with airconditioning, good breakfast, very conveniently placed close to u-bahn and shopping.
