“just a basic but clean and friendly stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

i was in berlin just for a short business trip and have no complaints. the price was very reasonable, the staff was friendly, and everything was clean enough for a few nights' stay. if you're looking for basic accomodation with no frills in a decent neighborhood, look no further.

The hotel is near all west Berlin atractions (zoo, Kurfurstendam street), and conected by bus and U bahn (2 blocks away) to the former east Berlin.
The hotel is good and they were giving a complimentary buffet breakfast.
Avoid going to breakfast at 8.45AM as the room is croaded and I also think the rooms are quite small if you a party of 3.

The hotel is located in the quite area of Kurfuerstenstrasse and is very conveniently close to KaDeWe, while luckily far away from the Kurfuerstenstrasse U-Bahn station, an area abundant with hookers, pimps and drug abusers. So if you want to take a U-Bahn train, I recommend to go to Wittenbergplatz station. The hotel itself is very clean and neat. The room is comfortable, with A/C, tea/coffee making facilities and TV. The breakfast is included in the rate and is very good. All in all, I would recommend this hotel without any doubts, particularly if you plan to go on a shopping spree at KaDeWe.

Dear amk2f,

thank you for you good review.
As you mentioned, we are located right in the heart of Berlin City Centre West- just a few steps away from the famous shopping area Ku'damm and world-known KADEWE, Kaiser Memorial Church, Zoological Garden and many other famous tourist attractions.
Let us know when you are again in a shopping mood - we are just a phone call away!

Kind Regards

Checked in for 5 nights on 1 August and had a very enjoyable stay. The room was spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. The air conditioning was very efficient and as the temperature was in the 30s an absolute essential. The staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, the dining room did get busy but the staff were continually bringing out refills and clearing tables as soon they were vacated.

Hotel is in a great location, about 15 min stroll from the main shopping area. Ka De We is a fantastic upmarket department store, the deli on floor 6 is amazing, numerous eating areas. Turn left out of hotel and virtually next door is lovely cafe bar, prosecco only 3 euros a glass. The bar in the hotel is very reasonable as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Berlin, loads to do, friendly people and the hotel was the perfect base and extremely good value.

Room Tip: Our room 101 was at the back of the hotel and very peaceful. The internal soundproofing is excellent...

good place to stay and value for money. Rooms clean and well maintained. Beds comfortable too. Bathroom towels and toiletries changed daily. Staff very friendly, helpful and spoke good English. A good variety for your continental breakfast and great that it was included in the price of the hotel. Hotel close to u-bahn Wittenbergplatz and the bus100 stop is on the other side of the road and only 15 mins to historical centre of Berlin. Wi-Fi ok but not great in rooms. Only one small issue was with the shower being hard to control. Its temp went between hot and too hot when a cooler temp would have helped. Reported it and was told the shower temp was also controlled by the temp within the room. A cooler room a warmer shower (strange). Reported again on leaving and the member of staff said they would have it checked it out. Would have no problems staying here again. Berlin a lovely city.

This is our second trip to Berlin this year. We chose to stay at this hotel again given its ideal situation (close to Zoo Station). Breakfast is great, staff are friendly & helpful, and this is a quiet part of Berlin. There is also a Ubahn (Wittenbergplatz) within 5 mins walk.
This is very handy for anything on the West of Berlin (Charlottenburg Palace, Olympic Stadium etc), but is also only 6 stops from Potsdamer Platz.
Good place to stay.

Room Tip: Room at the back is quieter.

This hotel was a pleasure to stay in. NIce breakfast, clean, quiet and a great location. If they had free wireless in the rooms, I would have given it an even higher rating. But the next time I am in Berlin, i will definitely stay here again.
