“Good location but lots of traffic noise!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Clean and stylish hotel in a central location. However it is situated in the middle of a traffic island which meant it is noisy at night if you like to sleep with the window open as we do. We also found it too hot for us although some people may like this. Friendly staff.

If you are in Berlin for a couple of days and have interests such as eating, sightseeing, shopping, drinking... And all over again this is a great spot to start from. All is great, rooms are nice, people friendly, and for breakfast all you can think of is served.
We were happy with this choice. If I go again I will most likely stay there again.

Very modern, clean and friendly hotel. Close to public transport. Service minded staff who speaks many languages. Big and modern rooms. The bus to central Berlin is just outside and the Nollendorfplatz underground station is a 5 min walk away. Can recommend the farmers market on saturday mornings at Winterfeldtplatz , 10 min walk south of the hotel.

We went for a short break mid week. The directions to the hotel took us to Zoologischer Garten Metro but we would suggest going to Witternbergplatz, just a 5 min stroll away. The hotel was perfectly located between Charlottenberg (main shopping area) and other main attractions that you can either take the trains / buses to or even walk (20 - 30 mins) as it takes you past the Tiergarten. When taking the metro / train especially with luggage, do not change at Warschauer Strasse as you need to negotiate stairs and a walk down the road (100 metres) to reach the other line.

The rooms were immaculate and the staff warm, welcoming and helpful. We had dinner in their restaurant one night and the food was of a high standard. Wander to the first floor of the hotel where they have a gallery of pictures showing the history of the hotel through the decades. The building also consists of different design themes that we found out by accident, taking the lift at the rear of the building and walking all around to get to our room.

If you can, ask for a room facing the rear. The only downside to our room was it faced Lutzenplatz, the main road and square which got a bit noisy but not so much we were inconvenienced by it or that it spoilt our stay.

The staff were ready with recommendations and it really helps if you're there for a short stay and only wanted to take in the main sights. Thoroughly recommend the hotel and will return someday.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear away from the main road or on a higher floor.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed in this hotel and for business trips it is perfectly suitable. The reception staff are very friendly, helpful and the bar facilities are great for popping in and out. There were a couple of issues with the room and in particular the fact that the cleaning staff decided to leave a cold cup of coffee in my room for 4 days. I even put the cup on the room service tray to be taken away but they decided to take the coffee cup off and clean around it! Sounds petty but it was a running joke to see if they would actually remove it. Room service breakfast was not good, so I would definitely recommned going down to the resturant.
If I was sharing the room I would have been concerned by the glass wall into the bathroom and which looks straight on to the toilet but luckily I was alone...

Once again persistent issues were experienced with free and paid Internet service at this hotel.
Nothing has changed over the last few years. Hotel Berlin offers what they call free Internet but it does not work ever. You figure if free does not work then the paid high speed Internet connection should, but not really . Logging on and getting kicked off and having to pay for each device separately is the order of the day.
The quality breakfast has been replaced gradually by inferior products and inferior and limited selections.
Some of the rooms were renovated recently and mine was comfortable and well maintained.
Upon checkout I mentioned my issues with the Internet and with a shrug and a check with management half of the charge for the online service was adjusted .
After many years staying here I am inclined to seek other accommodations next year.

Room Tip: Get a renovated room and bring your own wifi or mifi device it will save you money and aggravation
