“Decent Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The rooms were clean and tidy and the view from the window was amazing. The bathroom was a big small but it had the basics. No bath and the shower was a little small and the door wouldn't close properly. Atleast the water was a decent temperature which can be lacking in other hotels.

We booked a double room which was two single beds pushed together. The one Pillow you get is particularly flat and there is no extra one provided and the sheets seemed to be smaller than a single duvet so you may be a little cold at night but then you can control the heating in the room.

I didn't eat here so I couldn't talk about the food but from the menu left in the bedroom it was not worth the cost. Please be aware the price they tell you does not include the €10 service charge

Very good location though. 5 minute walk from the Berlin Zoo Rail Station

The Berlin Mark Hotel was perfect for my husband and I. It is only a few minutes walk away from attractions like Kurfurstendamm, Tiergarten and Kaiser Wilhelm church- which look amazingly festive at this time of year! Also, the U-Bahn station is accessible within 5 minutes which made travelling to the centre of town very convenient. It seemed a nice area, with many restaurants, bars and hotels. Our room was on the 6th floor, facing out onto the street but had no problems whatsoever with traffic noise. The communal areas such as the lobby/bar area are stylish and modern; the rooms are slightly less so but still very comfortable and welcoming. The TV and all its international channels was a bonus! However I would have appreciated coffee making facilities, and we could not get the wi-fi to work. The staff were really lovely and spoke perfect English, to compensate for my rusty German speaking skills! They could not do enough to help. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel as there is a supermarket and bakery on the same street. Overall a wonderful stay and great location, we would definitely stay here again. Would recommend to anyone.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in November. We paid £135 for 3 nights via Expedia, which I thought was very good value.

The Berlin Mark is not stylish or fancy & the decor is pretty brown/beige, but it does have the essentials & perhaps a bit more (we particularly appreciated the shoe cleaning machine in the basement!) Staff were welcoming & friendly & happy to assist with any query.

The hotel is located just off Kurfurstendamm a few minutes walk from nearest tube stop. The Hard Rock cafe was at the end of the road so the hotel could easily be found again when we were returning from our sightseeing trips. It was a few more minutes walk to the Zoo & Tiergarten & it was straightforward to access public transport to reach the other major sites in the city such as The Riechstag etc.

From Tegel Airport to the bus stop nearest the hotel it took about 25 minutes.

The room was a small double, but clean & comfortable enough. The shower was excellent: powerful with good temperature control. No bath. There was a fridge & mini bar but no coffee/tea facilities in room, although we were told we could access the Executive Suite for free hot drinks & water/juice etc.

Breakfast was not included in our package & we decided to eat out. The hotel has a bar- drinks were perhaps slightly more expensive there, but you have the convenience factor.

There are a number of restaurants on the same street- some serving german food & a couple of Italian eateries.

WiFi was free & the connection appeared to be quick & efficient. There was an in room safe.

Our room on the first floor faced the street however, it seemed quiet & even with the windows open ( the hotel was rather hot & stuffy) we were not disturbed.

I certainly recommend the Berlin Mark Hotel as an excellent budget choice.

The location is great!
The hotel is very clean, nice staff, but to many malfunctions in 3 days of our staying.
We upgraded to business class room, which includes free wi-fi. The wi-fi didn't work from our room. Only by the end of the first day we moved to another room which was OK with wi-fi.
Also had problems with room key, which didn't work. Had to use assistance several times..
But the most annoying thing was: When we upgraded to business, the reception guy said that we can enjoy free and unlimited Wi-Fi and free soft drinks. During checkout we've being told that we have to pay for drinks. What the reception guy forgot to mention, is that the drinks are free in business lounge! He didn't say a word about it, so i understood that the intention is to our minibar. Its not that I had to pay to much, but it made me feel really not comfortable.
Must mention, that some hotel workers did try hard and were very kind and nice.

Located at a strategic point for both sightseeing and shopping, with the U-bahn within 3-4 min. walk (KuDamm). very helpful and professional staff with excellent English. Nice facilities for the money (free lounge with business rooms). Recommended.

Room Tip: 1. get the business room 2. try the Luardi restaurant on Meinekestrasse near the hotel.

We stayed here during our stay in berlin.
The room was big and spacious. The subway station is a bit away, but not too far. Shops, restaurants and bars are in the neighborhood. On the same street it is a very good italian restaurant!

We went to Berlin for a week to visit the city and sing in two concerts so we had lots of time to explore and this hotel is ideally situated in the Western part of the city close to shops, restaurants and the S-Bahn & U-Bahn for travel to Alexeanderplatz and the airports. Hotel rooms just fine, clean, lots of hanging space. Buffet breakfast fine, but crowded and a bit chaotic but doubt worth staying in for dinner - lots of good restaurants close by. Bar area & lounge fine too and staff very friendly and helpful with tourist questions & travel. Can buy Berlin Pass at desk too. Very close to "Story of Berlin" which you must visit and shops galore! Thoroughly recommend hotel for a stay in this great city.

Room Tip: Though it is not a noisy area ask for room at back and on 6th floor. Could be worth asking for an up...
