“Budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

When it comes to this hotel, you have to look at things in perspective. The location is great (although for younger people I wouldn't recomand West-Berlin as it's a bit dust, better to stay at the Mitte area), very close to the Ku'damm (about 3 minute walk). The hotel itself is not that fantastic, but reasonable quality at this price/location. The beds were fine and the hotel is quiet. The rooms were small but not really a problem when you're on a city trip and don't have a big suitcase. The rooms were clean although the carpet looked a bit dusty and worn out. Rooms were cleaned every morning and towers were changed. However, on our second last day the room wasn't cleaned and towers weren't changed until 17:00 due to lack of staff. Desk staff was friendly and spoke English well.
Didn't try the breakfast as it's usually too expensive for what you get. Better go to a nearby Starbucks where you actually do have wireless internet access (I can't believe this hotel isn't offering free wifi. So zeroes.)

Hotel is not OK, rooms are so, so ! The breakfast is perfect, but too much and better to have breakfast at one of the local breakfast shops close by. Tons of good food places around for super quality/price balance.

Room Tip: Do not choose this hotel !

My first trip to Berlin and this was a great standard of hotel. Nice large bed, spacious bathroom (there was even a bath which seems to be a rarity in hotels these days). Everything clean and just as you would hope to expect. Immaculate decor. Lots of choices at buffet style continental breakfast and only a ten minute walk from Zooligische Garten train station which is very handy. You can get a bus to the hotel as well but we preferred walking. Lots of cheap eateries nearby.

One word of warning though for non German speakers: this hotel seems to go by three different names which is very confusing when trying to get a taxi back late at night. German taxi drivers have the patience of angels but they are not psychic. Write the address down or get a card to take with you as you are never going to remember 'Lietzenburger Strasse' let alone pronounce it after a few refreshments!

Room Tip: Try not to get a room near the lift. I was as far away as possible but heard it during the night...

My first trip to Berlin and i was particularly pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the Hotel staff.The restaurant was imacculately clean and the waiting staff efficient and magnanimous.The Hotel has a great location just off the Ku'damm which should suit shopaholics,there is also a plethora of bars/restaurants on hand too.

The rooms were very clean and warm and i experienced little problem sleeping,though as has been observed in other reviews it may be advisable to avoid rooms directly opposite the lift shaft.

There are two underground stations a short walk away in Uhlandstrasse and the 'City Cicrle Sightseeing Tours' also start in the nearby Ku'damm.

Check-in is from 3pm and Check-out at midday,however there is a luggage room available in which to deposit your bags should your flight times prove awkward.

Altogether the Hotel offered very pleasing value for money,i would happily (and plan to,) use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room opposite the lift shaft as there can be some noise from the doors opening and cl...

Visiting Berlin near Christmas time is a fantastic experience and should be a must at least once in everyone's lifetime. However, where you stay could affect your visit.
On our annual Christmas long weekend stay in Berlin, we decided to swap hotels only for a change of scenery.
The Grand City Hotel Berlin Kudamm looked to be a decent choice.
I was booked into a single room on the third floor, my friend on the fifth. Not a problem at first until I went to bed. As my room was opposite the doors to the lift, i heard EVERY single person who used the lift, ALL NIGHT!!
When I asked to change rooms, as they were almost at capacity, they had to do some changing but was done. Up to the sixth floor (lift only goes to fifth) I went and I thought all problems were over. Well, my new room was opposite the large motor that operated the lift so, although not as loud, there was a constant rumble every time anyone used the lift.
The rooms were clean and tidy and staff were always friendly. It became very obvious quickly that all the staff's English was better than my German so any problems were solved easily.
I would recomend the hotel, just avoid rooms away from the lift.
