This is a nice "old style" hotel in a very good location in Charlottenburg. Room was nice and a good size with a good bed. Irritations are present - wi-fi is poor to useless, tiny tv with only "News" for English speakers and something just weird happens if you decide to eat/drink on street terrace as this is shared by...

The hotel is incredibly clean, the rooms are very spacious and the bathroom is big! It has a fridge and a TV as well. The location is amazing, very close to a lot of stores and restaursnts! There is even a Haagen Dazs store inside the hotel! Highly recommended!

Great location in a busy street near the shopping centers. We booked 4 single rooms for one night and as the hotel boasted 4 stars we expected the rooms to be big enough for adults. Unfortunately the rooms in the "old" wing were too small and the bathroom was equally tiny. The rooms had no Air Conditioners but they did... More

The entrance has some beautiful art and even has an entrance to Hagen Daz ice cream. The parking is an issue even though our travel agent booked parking we had to park a block away and it was very expensive. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathroom size is acceptable. I do think that the breakfast could have been... More

Hotel is in a great location with easy access to the subway and buses. However some staff in the hotel were very unfriendly and rude to myself and my partner. When we asked for directions the lady at reception seemed very unwilling to help and starting huffing and puffing when I asked how to get to the Berlin Wall. She... More

This is an average hotel, nothing special. The room was somehow clean, except for the yellow stains on the pillows and a whole in the bathroom tile - not acceptable for a 4 star hotel. The staff is not very friendly, they do not know how to say hello and goodbye they ignore and snob the guests

We stayed for 4 nights, the hotel is in a great area for sightseeing. Very comfortable room, extremely clean, with helpful staff. The ice cream parlour on site was very welcome. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice.

Friendly staff, but really small and uncomfortable room, without any connection with pictures they show at the site . We were disappointed, according my world wide experience this hotel isn't suitable for their 4 stars rating

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
