The hotel is nice and comfortable. It is conveniently located close to bus and subway stations. What impressed me the most was the bartender, Max. He treats every guest as royalty, bending backwards to make your stay an experience to remember.

What a lovely surprise this hotel was. The room was stylish, if somewhat small, and the overall finish was above expectation. The bed offered excellent support and comfort and the fully tiled shower room was spotless. The front desk staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful and dealt with our safe problem effectively and efficiently. Only downside was the lack of air conditioning during a period of 33 degree Celcius heat and some building works which started at 6am - had there been air conditioning and the window been closed it wouldn't have been an issue. Looking forward to a return visit to Berlin and will definately consider the Castor

Room Tip: Only some superior rooms have air conditioning so consider this when booking if within your budget.

We had a great stay at Castor the Vine. The hotel is comfortable and clean with helpful staff who speak good english. We experienced a little road noise but it did nothing to spoil our stay. There are several good restaurants nearby - we would particularly recommend 'More' where the food was of an excellent standard and the service was great. The hotel is also well located for public transport.

Our first trip to Berlin was made all the better by being able to stay at this excellent hotel.. Great staff, really comfortable, tastefully appointed rooms and a fine breakfast to set you up for the day and the ensuing night. Great value too. >Book early as we found its reputation preceedes it, and it can become fully booked quite rapidly. great location for central Berlin and its varied ,friendly nightlife right on the doorstep. As they say "all tastes catered for". Cannot recommend highly enough. Only some street noise stops me giving it 5 stars, but hey its a brilliant trade off. fully airconned room and ensuite wetroom. Will definately book again. David Daies and Derek Livesey

Room Tip: the room numbers ending in .....01 are really spacious corner rooms with great views

Castor The Vine might not look too impressive from the outside, but we never wanna stay somewhere else in Berlin. The value for money is excellent, rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, bathrooms are modern etc. But the best thing about Castro The Vine is the very friendly and efficient staff. Always serviceminded and greeting you with a smile. The hotel is perfectly situated in wonderful Schöneberg, probably the best part of Berlin. Definitely coming back!!!

My room was nicely decorated in modern style. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast better than in a much more expensive hotel in Zurich the night before. Excellent location both for sights within walking distance and bus/subway. Handy to a variety of good restaurants. Gay friendly, but mostly straight clientele -- neither team should be scared away. And very reasonably priced.
