“Not up to standard”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2008

There is no good reason to stay at this hotel. It's miles out of the city centre in a run-down area, next to a four lane main road and a rail intersection. We thought we'd got a bargain but we were wrong. We got to the front desk and could see the hotel was shabby and in a state of disrepair. We were shown first to a room overlooking the noisy traffic-filled street and it was really substandard: the beds were old with creaky broken springs, the acrylic floor covering was so old it had dissolved in places into black stains, the room smelled of smoke, the sheets were clean but old and the room was cold. We asked to move rooms and the second one was marginally better but the beds were still old, and it was cold and was generally a very depressing place. When we left we were charged €100 of our €150 cost for three nights as we had arrived after midday. The guy on the desk reacted as if this was a normal occurrence. I'm sure they make more money from cancellations than from people staying. Be warned! Why stay here when for €20 more you can find a new hotel room in a much better area. We didn't take photos as we couldn't wait to get out!

Since this was our 3rd trip to Berlin, we needed a room for one night. We made reservations for this hotel through the Venere website. Hotel cost was 50 Euros with an additional 5 Euros for use of the hotel parking lot.

Since some of the rooms don't have bathrooms, we reserved a room with a bathroom. Furthermore, we specified late check-in between 9:00 and 10:00 PM. Upon our arrival, we discovered that our room had been given away. Our room did have a sink but no toilet. There was a community shower and toilets for both sexes. Unfortunately, the women's WC reeked of urine. However, there was plenty of soap, paper towels and toilet paper available.

Our room was small and comfortable. Perfect for our short stay. Although there were only 2 of us, our room could have been used as a triple.

Breakfast was simple with coffee, tea and juice available. Hotel staff was exceptionally helpful with directions. Furthermore, they didn't have a problem with us leaving our car in the hotel parking lot while we toured Berlin. Bus and S-bahn stops are half a block from the hotel. Be sure to pay for an S-bahn ticket. While riding the S-bahn, we were asked to show our tickets.

The only drawbacks for this hotel were the bathrooms and the issue with our reservation. Otherwise, this hotel is fine for a short stay in Berlin.
