N52°30'29.0" E13°24'19.1" Berlin's room rates might be low compared with other European capitals, but they do not include breakfast and free Wi-Fi Internet. Breakfast in Berlin cost easily € 18 per person per night. Grimm's is an exception in Berlin's Stadtmitte including breakfast for less than € 100 a night. Grimm's was adamant not to offer any discount for early and direct booking. There is probably no margin left in low Berlin room rates. Wi-Fi costs € 2 per hour in the room and is free in the lobby. The room doesn't have a fridge or water cooker. So enjoy the flat-screen television without thee or coffee.
The Grimm's hotel was built in 2009 on the Eastern site of the former "Mauer". The "Mauer" stood in front of the hotel. Find a line of stones and a plaque in the street pavement, showing where the wall actually stood. A piece of no-man’s-land is opposite the hotel.
Grimm's is a modern design hotel in an apartment block, like we visited in 2011 in Brussels. It has a fairy-tale theme from Grimm's. We stayed in the "Frau Holle" room 303 in May 2012 for three nights. All rooms are so called soundproofed. The bed was of good quality. Like so many hotels nowadays, it presents itself as eco-friendly, but with a rain shower we were lost a bit. New to us was the key lock inside the room, to switch on the electricity with the room key.
The breakfast buffet in the lobby is more than adequate in its continental and English breakfast offerings. Nothing "petite". Luxury items are available from the buffet, like salmon, various cheeses and French croissants. The breakfast until 11:00 hour is very good.
Grimm's is an affordable and modern hotel, just a walk from U-Bahnhof Spittelmarkt in Stadsmitte. The included breakfast is excellent. Recommended

Location: Well located a short (5-10 min walk) from Spittelmarkt U Bahn which gives you access to all the key locations across the city via the U2 U-Bahn. Centrally located between Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz.There is not a lot else around the hotel so be prepared to walk/travel to busier more lively parts of the city. The Nikolaiviertel or St. Nicholas Quarter is a 15 min walk away with nice restaurants and Brauhaus (brewpub).

Hotel: Modern, fresh, well designed. We were lucky and had been upgraded to a suite which was spacious, had a balcony, 2xTVs (all in German), living area and an amazing bathroom - the shower was fantastic! Lots of storage space in the room to hang clothes and hide cases and although modern with sleek lines, was decorated nicely too.

Cost: Obviously it was a bargain for us as we were upgraded to a bigger room for the same price but on seeing some other rooms and the general cleanliness and space around the hotel, I'd say it was good value.

Staff: Friendly, helpful and pleasant. Thankfully they spoke great English and advised on transport links and provided maps for us. As we were taking part in the Breakfast Run the day before the Berlin Marathon, they extended our check out time at no extra cost and were understanding when we were so delayed we even missed the later check out time! Nice for hotel staff to be flexible for a change!

Overall: Comfortable, good value, helpful and friendly staff. Even had a bike rack out front for hire of bikes to explore the city (12E for the day). Would seriously consider staying here again if visiting Berlin.

The Grimm's hotel is beside modern very cozy. The rooms are clean and very nice although they are quite small (But Berlin isn't a town to stay in your hotel room too often). The bed is small as well. The bathroom was big, with a nice shower and very clean as well! The staff was friendly and helpfull.
The breakfast was fine as well, no too much fresh fruit or vegetables, but good bread an more than enough to choose from.
Just around the corner (Neue Grünstrasse) is a lovely place to have homemade lunch, it's called 'Cappucino'. You can walk within 20 minutes to a lot of nice places everywhere in Berlin, the U-Bahn (Spittelmarkt) is just 5 minutes walk away.

Thank you for your comment. We have extra large bed for really tall people. They are in the lenght 2,20, but everything else should be in a normal size. We have fuitsalad, a choice of different dryed fruits, tomato, cucumber and paprika. I'm sorry, that you couldn't find the right one for you! We will think about it and we will try to make better choice. We have different categorie of rooms. The size is depending on the price. The normal Double-room has the standard size and we have also doubleroom deluxe and premium. There are bigger. Maybe you will try one of them next time. See you soon!

Great find in Mitte. 4 blocks from Gerdarmenmarkt and Checkpoint Charlie. Quiet central area. Modern brand new hotel. Excellent breakfast for about 9 EURO. Location is not such an issue like others mention. This hotel is 1 block from a Marriott Courtyard - so it is well-located in my book. I got a hot deal for 3 nights. I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay for a double room even if you are a single traveller - you get a nice size room for not much mor...

Is a very nicely decorated hotel with good service. however, the hotel is a bit out of the way from metro station. Other reviewer has mentioned is a 3-5 min walk- must be a brisk walk. With a suitcase, it was a 10min walk and pretty quiet too and i couldn't find the street signs and people on the street weren't able to direct me. It is more in the residential area and nothing really fancy around and every day, I had to finish my day early during my stay as I dont feel comfortable walking down that road with lots of hidden danger or maybe i am just over reacting.

Free WIFI available but at the lobby only which for a new hotel, they can do more than that.

Grimm's is a medium-small hotel in a quite zone of Berlin, at a short walking distance form metro stations which allows you to reach easily what you look for in Berlin. The hotel is recently rehabilitated, where you feel fresh and brightness, with wide and bright rooms. All the rooms are different each other with decorations and sentences inspired to the tales of Grimm's brothers. Free wi-fi in the rooms, the possibility to have a very satisfactory breakfast and the courtesy of the staff are other values of Grimm's hotel. Recommended.

There was free parking directly outside the hotel. The hotel was very nice but there was a lot of construction work going on immediately adjacent which meant the windows were rather grubby.
The bathroom had the best shower ever - beats any 4 or 5 star hotel ever stayed in. There was free water in the room which is not common in Germany.
The breakfast was good but the hot food selection was very limited and the cold food was replenished by hand by the manageress who was not wearing chefs whites and with no food handling gloves or tongs. Not a big deal but it just didn't look very professional and I think this hotel is supposed to be aimed at business travellers.
