We stayed here due to reading reasonable reviews on Laterooms.com! However our experience was something completely different!
Upon checking in we were greeted by a very pleasent young woman who spoke English fluently and was very helpful with our questions of navigating the city! However that is where the please tries stopped!

To start, we used the lift to get our bags up to the room (we had already read reviews about this being bad but our bags were very heavy so didn have much choice) and it was terrifying! Never used it again!
When we got to the room at first it didn't look too bad but upon further inspection it was a different story! Around the room was a wood panelling, which from a distance didn't look too bad, however when you went near it if you touched it just a little it came away from the wall and was simply covering old pipes.
The next issue arose when we found a random door in the room which didn't open, upon further inspection it was a door to the next room. This made us feel very unsafe, to the point where we barricaded the door before going to sleep.
The morning after our first sleep there we were woken at 7:30am by work men hammering and drilling on the floor below us. We went downstairs to complain but it seemed the only member of staff who spoke English was the young woman from the check-in and she wasn't working at this time. After spending 15 minutes trying to explain the problem to the man on reception we gave up. We spoke to the woman later that evening to ask if we could be moved up one floor as we didn't want to be woken again and were told they were fully booked >.<
There was also a member of staff who was the creepiest old man I've ever encountered! Upon entering the hotel one night around 1am, he "checked out" my GF staring at her in a very pervy manner and then said "goodnight" in the most sinister way ever!
The next problem was that the whole time there we were unable to shower. The reason for this was because the shower head was so disgustingly covered in limescale!
Staying on topic of the bathroom, every time we flushed the toilet an awful smell of urine would arise from the sink and taint the whole room with this smell for around 20 minutes.
Finally, the main problem was that even though we let the cleaners in every day to clean the beds were covered in bed bugs. I was lucky and only got bit once on my leg however my GF was covered from head to toe in bites (3 on her face, 5 on her neck, 15-20 on her back/chest and around 10 on her legs) to the point where we had to. Is it a hospital to get cream and medication for it.

Only good points about this are the woman from the start and the location wasn't too bad being so close to the U-Bahn and S-Bahn!

Stayed here as part of Easyjet holiday deal and wanted somewhere cheap to stay in a good location. I really recommend staying here if on a budget! Excellant location, 2min walk to U bahn and near loads of cafe/restaurants. Great for getting around by public transport. Room was lovely, cleaned daily, amazing shower, spacious room with ample storage, huge wardrobe a safe deposit box and free wi-fi if you ask at reception for password.
Had breakfast one day here- usual spread of breads, meats, cheeses, cereal, juice and coffee. Nice enough but a bit pricey at 8 euro pp when you can eat far cheaper outside of hotel. The hotel itself was clearly being renovated at the time so I expect it will be far more modern soon.
The only points that are a bit down is 1- a dodgy lift. Very small and old and creaky- I took the stairs when I did not have luggage. 2- the staff on desk. Do not stay here if you want helpful friendly reception desk staff. We stayed 5 nights and none of the staff over this time were anything but rude to us even when asking simply for a map of area or even the nearest post box!! Having said that though the hotel room itself is the perfect base for exploring Berlin. Buy a day rider pass for 6.30 euro and ride the tube all day!!

Room Tip: Request non smoking if you do not smoke and you will be fine

I stayed here in December with my boyfriend for 3 nights, to visit the Christmas Markets. The hotel was a bargain at 40 euros per night. It is very basic, with outdated decor, but it was absolutely spotless, which is the most important thing!

The hotel location was absolutely amazing. It is just off Kurfurstendamm, which is great for shopping (any designer you can think of has a shop along there!) and is about 20/30 minute walk to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. It is close to the Adenauerplatz train station, which is just 1 stop along from Charlottenburg Palace. It is also pretty easy to navigate your way around to areas such as the Brandenburg Gate and Museum Island.

Overall, for the price I don't think you can beat it. If you are looking for a hotel you want to relax in and watch TV and eat nice food, this isn't the place for you. But, if like me, and you just need a place for sleeping & getting ready for a day out sightseeing, then it is perfect.

Room Tip: All rooms seem pretty quiet, as the Hotel is on a side street.

I was in Berlin for the ITB Trade Fair. AGON Lichtburg is well located in the city centre, near the Ku'dam. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful, offered to call a taxi when I needed one. The breakfast was nice, with a quite large choice. The room was very basic and could do with some renovations, but at least it was clean. My colleagues had problems with noise, especially the rooms close to the elevator.

When you need a clean place to stay at a affordable price, without any luxury, then this is an option for you.

I booked this hotel for a business trip so I was hoping that it would be very comfortable. When I arrived, I was given a smoking room, which absolutely stank of smoke and the carpet was all stained. On request, I was moved to a non-smoking room, which stank just as bad as the smoking room. The carpets were filthy, towels were dirty and off white. The shower had scum all around it. Not a single cent has been invested in the upkeep of this hotel. The only good thing about it is that it's close to public transport. If you're a non-smoker, don't stay here.

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel if you're a non-smoker, or if you like the room to be clean.
