“Modern & comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

I loved staying at this hotel!
ROOM: Upon arrival I found I'd had a complimentary upgrade on my room. The room was on the 5th floor, a great size, with a comfy chair, sofa bed & desk. The mattress was very soft. The bathroom was also nice & modern, with a walk in shower. It was also at the back of the hotel, so nice & quiet in the evenings. There was a safe in the bedroom and also a mini bar - for those people who like their hot drinks, note that the tea & coffee isn't complimentary (I've never seen this before).
STAFF: The reception staff were very friendly and helpful & I felt at home there as soon as I arrived.
WELLNESS: There is a nice gym, relaxation room and a spa area with a steam room, sauna & foot baths. You just need to let a member of staff know you want to use the steam/sauna 20 mins in advance, so that they can heat it up.
LOCATION: The hotel is a few steps away from a U-bahn station so it's easy to get to any part of the city from here. It's very close to the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnis-Kirche, Europa Centre, KaDeWe, KuDamm and within easy walking distance to the Tiergarten & Savigny Platz.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Room Tip: My 5th floor room was lovely & quiet

This hotel is conveniently close to the famous Kurfürstendamm shopping street. Everything is easy to reach by public transport. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The room was fine. It would be nice if there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room, but we didn't really missed it because we were gone all day. The room was a little too warm.

The location of this hotel is great. it was easy to visit Berlin while i was staying here. its close to the biggest shopping mall in Berlin. For people who wanna go shopping and don't wanna walk to much, i suggest this hotel. Also, the room for this price i think its reasonable, especially in this location(The room i stayed was clean and cosy as well. ).

Our team had the great pleasure to stay in the Hotel Alsterhof for our visit to the ITB fair 2014.

We could not have chosen a better hotel for our visit. The hotel is located within easy reach to the fair (10 minutes by Underground) and at the same time offers a great ‘city centre’ experience. The most famous Shopping Mall in Berlin, the ‘KaDeWe’, is just on the doorstep of the hotel and one of the main shopping areas in Berlin, the ‘Kurfuerstendamm’ with the famous Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, lies within a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
Enough said about the location, our stay was really made by the hotel itself. The hotel lobby is small but very functional, can easily accommodate group check-ins and the staff is always friendly, at day and night. The rooms have just been refurbished and offer a very comfortable, modern and functional feel. The desks are perfect for working whilst travelling and the internet always worked faultlessly. The favourite part of my stay in a hotel in Germany is always the breakfast and all my expectations were fulfilled and exceeded with a huge assortment of any breakfast items you may wish for.
The hotel also offers some modern meeting facilities on their top floor, overlooking the roofs of Kurfuerstendamm. Within its’ capacities this space offers great flexibly and you need to look no further for suitable meeting space for you next meeting in Berlin.

All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to stay in Berlin:
Tourists, business travellers and fair visitors are all perfectly catered for at the Alsterhof Berlin

We have been now three times at this hotel, and think to use it again. Very well situated, excellent friendly service; twice a large and agreable room, once a good, clean functional room, but a bit small. Price/performance ratio quite good. The breakfeast is good, not as fabulous as some time in germany, but very valuable. Restaurant agreable for a snack, not tested otherwise. The location is really good, close to the underground, and 5 minutes from the Kurfürstendamm

Room Tip: Take the top rooms some have fantastic view on Berlin Roofs (Gedänkniskirche visible)
