“Furniture=blocks?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2009

There was a bathtub at the front door. Nice.

The hotel was located in the middle of nowhere. It wasn't easy to find. The area is quiet but...

Our room was on the
first floor. The view from the window was to a park. People walking by could see right in. Yes, we did have curtains, but they were transparent.

All of the furniture was made of wooden blocks. The bed was made on blocks, the chairs were blocks, the shelf on the wall was made of blocks. I'd never pay so much for anything like that.

Brilliant value, brilliant location, basic but clean and roomy, service a bit perfunctory but really you couldn't find fault with this place for the money.

PutInn is just a few minutes walk from Stadmitte U-bahn and conveniently located for sightseeing; Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Tor and Potsdamer Platz are a few blocks away. There is, however, little nightlife nearby and after dark this area is a little soulless although apparently safe to walk around.

The reception staff were very cheerful and friendly and it was very apparent that a lot of effort was put into keeping the place clean. In contrast to other reviews I thought my room was very small and dark. There wasn't much competition for using the shared shower room which was routinely cleaned but was poorly ventilated and subsequently damp and mouldy.

If you want a quiet, inexpensive, no-frills place to stay for sight seeing then this would probably meet your requirements.

I was very happy with my stay at Putinn. The location was great - I walked everywhere. The place was very clean, I never had to compete with anyone for my shared bathroom, and the breakfast, while not spectacular, was certainly adequate. I arrived outside of reception hours but had no problems making advance arrangements to get my keys. Definitely not a party hostel, but I was looking for a clean, quiet, well-located, inexpensive place to stay while I was in Berlin, and Putinn was perfect.

I have stayed here for 5 nights last june. This hotel was the very suprise of my whole trip. The location is simply perfect, just a block from subway station and Friedrichstrasse, the most elegant and commercial street in Berlin and no more than 3 from Gendarmenmarket (don't miss the Fassbender & Rauch chocolaterie) and almost 4 blocks from Postdamer Platz (Sony Center) and Brandeburg Gate. The Putin it's a new building in the very center (Mitte) of Berlin. We stayed at the Berlin room (non smoker floor), extremely BIG, sunny (3 wide windows that looks to an interior and greeny plaza), confortable and so quiet. There's a lavatory inside of every room and a nice bathroom only shared with 2 others rooms. Every floor has a living room with a balcony, a nice kitchen where they serve you a breakfast (coffee, tea, juice, toast, jam, cheese, granola, etc). There's another room with a wash machine and you don't have to pay anything for its use. The boys/girls from the reception are helpfull and wonderfull! So, if you dont need a concierge all the time on the other side of the telephone line, this is by far the best place to stay in this wonderful city. There's a web [--] and email is [--]
