“Nice hotel, excellent location, needs wifi availability.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights in one of the standard rooms. Rooms were very clean and had all facilities required.

The hotel is on a busy street with trams so I can imagine the noise might be a little intrusive on the lower floors. My room was on the 4th floor so it wasn't really a problem. Had a couple of drinks in the hotel bar which were a bit expensive (but probably standard by hotel prices) and a meal in the Tapas bar which was average.

The biggest selling point for this hotel is it's location. Two mins walk to the U bahn and S bahn. I can recommend getting a Berlin travel pass as these make travel around the city exceptionally easy

Staff were very helpful and polite. I would stay here again. The only drawback was the lack of internet. Wifi was available at hourly or daily rates but the price was ridiculous. Only real let down with this hotel was the lack of free (or evenreasonably priced) wifi.

If the hotel management could getthe wifi sorted then thiswould be a 5 star review

Room Tip: Ask for a room on as high a floor as possible. The River side of the hotel is quieter.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband as we were holidaying through Europe for 4 weeks. We arrived via the train which was conveniently located 2 minutes from the hotel. On check in I found the staff to be a little abrupt and just not service orientated. They didnt show us a map of the city or offer to take our luggage. In every other hotel we stayed in (we paid around the same price for Melia) we had breakfast and wifi including but this was not offered at Melia. Breakfast was 22Euro a head (hope they are serving champas) and Wifi was $4.99 Euro per hour. In todays interconnected environment I think it's a bit backwards when internet is not either free or included in the room rate. The room overall was spacious and ok. There was no tea or coffee making facilities and it just lacked something. Needs to be a little more customer focused and pay more attention to detail and basic customer needs

Hotel is located in town center, just near subway, bus and train station. Hotel is great, rooms are tidy and clean, and the hotel bar is ok too. Only annoying thing were the price of wifi internet. It's not ok to charging that much for day use or (hour of internet).

Melia Berlin is excellently located in the city centre of Berlin (Friedrichstrasse). It is a modern hotel with high standards. Breakfast and Internet was not included, which you should take into account when comparing the offer from Melia with other hotels nearby.

If free Internet access is not important for you, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. If it is important to you, you will find better deals nearby.

This is an excellent hotel. I had a large doubleroom by myself. The room was absolutely sound proof. It's perfectly located on Friedrichstrasse right by the station and there are lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. The location was pretty much perfect - being just 50m from Friedrichstrasse station and within easy walking distance of Museum island, Brandenberg Gate, Reichstag etc. We only got the metro to the Ku'damm and to explore the Prenzlauer Berg area.

We booked a Level Room and were very pleased. The room itself was very comfortable and quiet. A bonus we could open the windows as it was quite hot inside. We ate a very good breakfast in the Level Lounge which goes on until 11am (great if you come in on the late Easy Jet flight!) and then didn't eat again until afternoon tea in the lounge when we got in from sightseeing. The canape buffet and drinks are also good from 6pm.

If you are able to book the $30 F and B credit it's a fantastic deal as we were astonished to find the 3 night credit of $90 was deducted from one meal that we had in the hotel so the meal was basically free - we'd only expected $30 to be deducted. We ate in the Tapas bar and the food was really good and unusually for a hotel the bar was buzzing with tables being turned 2 or 3 times on Friday night.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room and you will get an inside view ie no view but quiet rather than street facing.

You cannot fault this hotel the rooms are immaculate ,the service is top rate as is the food & the choice at breakfast. We stayed on the level (floor 7) which we had before as we loved the use of the lounge which you can relax in with beverage of choice available all day including a great array of nibbles.We always buy the ABC travel card covering the number of days we are there as it covers all areas including just outside berlin & all 4 modes of transport (train,subway,bus,trams,) The location is perfect for visiting anywhere in berlin ,a great place to walk around in the evening with all the buildings beautifully lit & often with querky ideas. with plenty of eateries & shops all around.We would definatley stay again

Room Tip: If you like peace & quiet don't have a room facing the road as the trams are noisy this does...
