“Relaxed, Great Location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

A fine compromise between some ultra-hip boutique hotel and a soulless "business chain". The rooms are great - we were on the 10th floor and had a great balcony (though no furniture out there - perhaps that has changed, the hotel had only been open a couple of weeks). Staff are relaxed and friendly, and the location is just perfect. OK if you don't like ex-GDR concrete you might feel a bit out of it - but I do, and anyway you are a stone's throw from everything in Berlin.

Minor quibbles I hope the management will address

- quantity of bathroom supplies not really adequate for two people, and weren't replenished as well as would have expected.
- little bit tricky to find, taxi driver got lost, could do with a better explanation on the website. My room-mate was coming from S-Bahn and also found it tricky to find on foot.

But overall: great pricing, comfortable rooms, fantastic showers and nice people in a perfect location for someone on a short break.

Room Tip: 10th floor rooms have balcony

Thank you! There will be furniture on the balcony in the future. As you already said we just opened the hotel and not all the furniture have been delivered, yet.

I very much like the Indigo chain and think that the concept works well. Stayed at this new Indigo mid June for 3 nights on their "Getting to know you rate". The hotel only opened in May and is still going through some opening issues but overall our stay was excellent. I will be hyper critical here but please bear in mind this is on the basis that it has just opened.

The hotel is located around 3 minutes’ walk from Alexanderplatz next door to the Holiday Inn and is in a good location for public transport. You are unlikely to find a taxi waiting so you need to get reception to call one for you. This is not a problem at all in Berlin.

We checked in around midnight - advised in advance - and this was no problem and efficiently handled. The room booked was a balcony room on the 10th floor - corner room and had a good view - It’s not that picturesque - Alexanderplatz and the surrounding area is not anyway unless you like Communist 1960s architecture but it does have a particular charm. The room was excellent and the balcony had a couple of chairs and a table for a glass of wine - if warm enough.

The room was equipped with a very comfortable bed, a sofa and good TV area, a large rain shower - no bath. Free internet and good lighting. There was a desk area and a corner by the bed which should have contained a table but only the glass was there. A finishing touch not complete I guess.

There were a large number of builders and technicians going up and down in the lift which was a bit time consuming but I am sure that this was due to the fact that this was the opening period.

Breakfast was great on the first two days but a little chaotic on the 3rd as on this day the hotel appeared to be full. It appeared that staff could not just keep up with demand on day 3.

The bar is pleasant and the service excellent. I have to say at the end of each evening we always stopped in for a glass of wine. All good.

Room cleaning left a little to be desired. Room cleaniing was late on 2 of the 3 days and for some reason they did not leave any shower gel or shampoo. Perhaps this was a supply problem.

For Berlin, there is not much in the surrounding area but a 3 minute walk takes care of that.

Definitely recommend the hotel and will only get better as time passes.

Room Tip: 10th Floor. A bit more but think that they are worth it.

Due to cancellations of another hotel, the Indigo was overrun by hords of loud youngsters and the breakfast area was a bit lilke the final days in May 1945... Total chaos and a free for all.
Let's forget that.
Brand new hotel, nice rooms, should be good breakfast.
Free internet, I believe.
Parking in a round the corner in an old, good East Berlin style parking. Must be seen.
Hotel is near(ish) to Alexanderplatz which is still being rebuilt. All a bit choatic and stoill lots of old buildings around. This can be called charming, certainly this aspect of Berlin is disaapearing quickly.
All in all, a good hotel and the Indigo concept is refreshing to see in the IHG group.
Oh yes, loved the steak for dinner downstairs!!!!!!

I stayed at the Indigo on Alexanderplatz during one of my many business trips to Berlin. Beautiful new hotel with an excellent location. Lovely spacious rooms. The staff were superb, very helpful and extremely friendly. Highly recommend this hotel, whether for business or pleasure.

Hotel Indigo, Alexanderplatz, is a newly refurbished hotel. I believe the hotel opened at the begining of May 2012. Needless to say, it was a beautiful hotel to stay in, only 4 weeks after it opened. Our room was spacious and had a view of Alexanderplatz, of course not all rooms can have a great view but I suspect all the hotel rooms were as tastefully decorated and as comfortable as my own.
Other than being a very nice, calming and relaxing place to stay, the staff here were, without any doubt, the friendliest and most professional people I have come across is quite a while. It made all the difference to our stay. It also made a huge difference to stay in a hotel that had enough staff on duty to do a fantastic job, this was very refreshing.
The bar is a great place to relax and have a drink after a heavy day of sightseeing, it has a really nice ambience. The food was great too. The restaurant called L'entrecote, not surprisingly sells a good steak as well as some excellent house red to chase it down with. It is fair to say that, although the restaurant is not trying to compete head on with specialist restaurants, it provides a good all-round menu to satisfy the needs of the guest, with its signature dish being steak. I can say we did enjoy the steak very much.

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend. We found in it anything we needed for a great short vacation. Location is superb, nearby Berlin's historical sites and best areas (Alexanderplatz), service was friendly, professional and helpful, rooms are well equipped and organized and the shower is just outstanding ;-).
The restaurant was very good and overall we were very pleased.
Very highly recommended.
