“Spartan hotel in convenient location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

A nice under 100 Euros hotel in Berlin. If you have business at Julius Kühn-Institut or at the Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum and have a short budget, it's the placer to stay. My only complain is related with the quality of the beds. In my room I had a single bad and a couch, and I just slept in the bed only at the first night. The couch was much better. The pillows are strange, but it seem to be a standard in germany.

In other hand, the staff was very kind and the cleaness of the hotel and the room impecable. Simple but honest breakfast option and good TV channels, including in English and French, which was a relief. I could be there again, if the keep the couch in the room!

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip to Berlin. The staff was very helpful with my booking (I had to modify it once) and my request for a quiet room was met. Comfortable room and good range of buffet breakfast. Free wireless was nice, given that so many hotels levy a charge these days. Rathaus Steglitz (access to U-Bahn and S-Bahn) is just a 5 min walk and there's a bus stop just in front of the hotel.

I stayed at this hotel when attending a conference at the Free University. The Hotel was basically comfortable, and very clean. As other reviewers have said, it is a little dated throughout, but it is not falling apart by any means. It is close to the U- and S-bahn stations, so one can get into the city (Potsdam Place or nearby) in about 15-20 minutes, so quite quickly. Probably not a place for tourists (because you'll be in the city!), but its a perfectly nice and leafy area of Berlin. Breakfast was basic and nice. My internet was fast and stable (and I didn't have to pay for it, but perhaps other guests do?).

Nice hotel in a great location. There is even a grocery story about 5 minutes away, plus plenty of restaurants and shopping. We did not have to pay for internet, but it didn't work the first day we were there, and the hotel staff seemed to think we were doing something wrong.

Breakfast was great and staff there was very polite and helpful.

The Hotel Ravenna needs a facelift and a makeover.

The rooms are cramped. The furniture and decor deserve "relic" status. The hotel offers a passable breakfast, which is a nice start to the day. But, like the hotel itself, breakfast consists of basic fare offered with a half smile.

Most of the staff seem perplexed if not downright diffident toward basic requests.

Wireless access requires the purchase of Internet credit cards available (sometimes) at the front desk. Unfortuntely, the front desk ran out of the 5 EUR cards (smallest denomination available) repeatedly thoughout our two-week stay.

For the money, you can do better. Berlin offers a slew of low-budget but high-quality hotels in far more inviting locations.

The hotel is located a few blocks from the Rathaus Steglitz U-Bahn stop, which is a plus.

However, if you choose to drink or dine in the area, visit the General Post Office pub, a fine establishment to the right and a couple of blocks northeast of the hotel.

My colleagues and I stayed at the Hotel Ravenna to attend a business meeting in the local area. For a sub-100 Euro hotel, it was great. Staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean (a little dated furniture wise, but what would you expect for €77 in a European capital city) and the buffet breakfast was above average for "continental" (Selection of juices/fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, fresh boiled or scrambled eggs, selection of meats/cheeses, selection of breads/rolls, etc). The neighbourhood is safe, (leafy green suburb of Berlin), but close to some shopping malls and supermarkets. Rathaus Steglitz U-Bahn station is a 5-10 min walk giving access to two underground train lines into central Berlin. There is an Italian restaurant next door which was relatively cheap and the food was great and there are other restaurants and pubs nearby. 10 minutes walk turning right out of the hotel are the Botanical Gardens (€6 entry)...my colleague and I only had an hour to spare before we needed to get back to the airport, but it was fabulous, the tropical plant houses and the tropical plants inside them are huge! I would certainly have no problem staying at the Ravenna again and would have no problem recommending it to friends/family.
