Great location for Berlinale Film Festival! 2 blocks from EFM (European Film Market) at Martin Gropius Bau, 20-min walk to Potsdamer Platz. 1/2 to 1/4 the price of other hotels affiliated with the festival. (I hope I can still get a room next time after writing that! ;) You will also meet other Festival attendees because of the family-style Breakfast. Room facing courtyard was clean, sunny, quiet, comfortable, and had good wifi (included). There is an elevator if you have large bags or any injuries. Close to transportation, cool cafes, Checkpoint Charlie, and other tourist sites. Angelika gave me a good map. The bus routes are very convenient to go East to Oranienstrasse or anywhere else. I like staying in Pensions, because you get a little more "local" experience. To me, the area was a bit spooky because of the history of the neighborhood. But, that's Berlin. Also the energy-saving auto-lights are very Green/economical, but at first if you're a woman traveling alone, may put you on guard for a moment. But the area felt safe in a city way. That way, it's more like staying in a flat than a hotel. Angelika & Agnese were helpful and very friendly, but I didn't know how to reach them for questions in the evening since I didn't have a mobile phone set up yet.

For our first trip to Berlin we could not have done better. The warmth of the hospitality was evident from the first contact we made with Agnese and Angelika. Close to the main sites but peaceful location. Beautifully presented breakfast set us up for a day's sightseeing. Good advice on places to eat. Excellent in every way.

Stayed in the family room for 4 nights and loved it. Had the place to ourselves so it was very quiet and peaceful. Angelika was very kind and helpful and laid out a lovely breakfast each morning, coffee was awesome and so was the jam made by Angelika's Aunty. Close to Ubahn and checkpoint Charlie and loads of good restaurants (try the Vietnamese one across the road, delicious and cheap). Enjoyed our stay here immensely. :)

The Pension Gallerie is a bit of an ugly duckling on the outside, but on the inside it transforms into a swan. We had a lovely, large and comfortable room across the landing from the communal area of the pension. It was very quiet and we had everything we needed ... except a hairdryer, but I'm sure this could have been provided if I had asked. Angelika and Agnes provided plenty of assistance with directions on getting around Berlin. A beautifully presented and delicious breakfast buffet was laid out each morning - even a 'breakfast to go' on our last morning when we had to leave early to catch our flight to Copenhagen. Don't be put off by Google street view - you'll be missing out on some of the best and most affordable accommodation in Berlin.

Location is good and just a quick trip from train station by taxi. The rooms are very clean and large. It was great to be able to unpack and spread our gear out, and sit somewhere other than on the bed. The host, Angelika, is friendly and helpful. Pension Galerie is great value for money and is a good base when staying in Berlin for a few days. Just one complaint (at the risk of sounding like Goldilocks) the beds are rock hard and the pillows are marshmallow soft - a happy medium would be just right!!

This is a great place to stay in Berlin! Very convenient location, two U-Bahn and one S-Bahn line within 5 minutes walk. Very good breakfast, good comfortable rooms and reasonable rates. Very friendly and helpful staff. We have only one wish - that card payment is accepted!
