“Unpretentious, but good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

The room is small and a bit basic, but clean as was the bathroom. There was no soap for the shower.
There isn't any further service than the room.
It's well positioned for exploring the city, not so far from the historical points of interests and close to the bus stop, and S bahn.
The reception is not active during the evening and night.

On the whole the pension was OK for the money, clean and in a good neighbourhood, free WiFi, coffee machine and fridge in room (buy your own coffee). The room was quite shabby and old fashioned but I can live with that for the price. I was not told about the kitchen on arrival and it is only now that I read reviews I found out there is a kitchen, where ever it was, it was nowhere near my room and not indicated in room info.

But the worst thing was the noise. The gas boiler would start at all times of day and night and was noisy so would wake me up. But on my last night the fire alarm was making a horrendous loud whining noise all night continuously for over 12 hours.

Another thing to watch out for is that because the reception is only sporadically open, it's pot luck whether you'll be able to leave and pick up your luggage later on the departure day. If not you'll have to pay for a locker at one of the DB stations.

Close to Ubahn - friendly and helpful staff - but rather dark and slighty damp room - no cleaning for the 4 nights,we stayed there.
Clean towels every second day ! Shared kitchen was OK !

Stayed here for 3 nights in January.
Location is excellent. Not to far to the Sbahn
Room and bathroom were basic but clean.
Rooms were secure.
Would without doubt stay here again.
If you are looking to come to Berlin for a long weekend, this is a very good option.
Give it a go.

The owner has many apartaments is this street and you can stay in one of the apartaments. Mine (was a 2 beds separated with provate bathroom) was great, very spacious, clean, confortable, with a private bathroom. Very silentious. You have to check in until 9 pm, otherwise there is nobody there to give you the key. Make a email before going telling them what time you will be there. The bathroom was great. The entrance of the building can give you a worng impression that it is not a good place, because the walls of the entrance have graffit and are in bad conservation, but the roons are good! It is really near the U, S bahn and Tram station, you can go every where quickly. Near to a place named bisquitt where you can have your breakfast (2 minuts walking). 2 minutes to the market named REWE. I really recomend this.

Pension Marie is just off Schonhauser Allee which is one of the main hubs just north east of the city centre. You can walk to the city within 25 minutes or get a bike - very easy as Berlin. Pension Marie is very comfortable, secure and quiet and it's cheap. An easy place to simply leave your bags, close the door and go off exploring for the day.
