“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Stayed here in 2011, it's right across the street from the central Hbf. Berlin station, where you can find tours for hop-on hop-offs tours, trains to/from other counties and locally. There are lots of street vendors across the street from the train station - inside the train station there are plenty of shops/resturants.

The hotel was very modern both in the room and the lobby, check in was excellent and a breeze, even for those who don't have reservations.

Rooms were very well equipped, with a nice balcony. Free use of Ipad's in the lobby as well as free internet. However, one must pay for wifi in their room. (very common throughout europe)

Highly reccommended for a single traveller, or couple - average price range.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a Balcony.

I recently stayed at the Motel One Berlin-Hauptbahnhof, after a recommendation from a friend. The room was small, clean and cosy, the terrace was private and had a great outlook.

However I would warn other travellers, that if you need wifi for business or entertainment the Motel One Berlin-Hauptbahnhof will be a less than adequate experience. It is very, very slow, one has to login everytime and it is impossible to use if you need to work or contact people quickly. I waited 5 minutes to access one news page.

I tried to address this with the Front Office I was told "We are fully booked so the request for the internet is very high. The only solution is to be patient" and another response "We always have trouble connecting all Apple products to the wifi".

iPhone and Mac users be aware.

I think accommodation that advertises itself as having free, high speed internet and then provides that type of a response, needs to acknowledge that their wifi needs to be upgraded quickly and advertise their services correctly.

Room Tip: Book a room away from the lifts

We stayed three nights at this hotel within an easy walk of berlins main railway station. It was clean, comfortable, reasonably appointed. And excellent value. I would have no hesitation at staying again

Room Tip: We had a balcony attached to the room, small but nice to sip wine on.

Easy located the hotel via the exit from Berlin Tourist Center.Nothing much around the hotel but can get almost everything at Berlin Hbf.This is a nice and modern hotel. Room size was acceptable,clean and comfortable.If the hotel can provide a bottle of mineral water and tissue paper it would be better. Wifi connection was good,I even can watch movie online.
Breakfast was served at the hotel lobby.I can say that the whole hotel lobby is the place where you have the breakfast. Breakfast dish was simple with about 3 different type of breads,ham,cheese etc.Coffee was nice.Highly recommended their freshly baked croissant,very fresh and tasty.

We had some reservations about the name 'Motel One' expecting something like a Travelodge on our first visit last year but this is a great Hotel, very clean and calm with friendly staff, a great breakfast and a lovely patio. The hotel is about 5 mins from the north exit of the Hbf but most of that is crossing the roads. It's still level with the ends of the rail platforms to give an idea of distance

This hip Hotel has surprisingly small rooms. Not much room for two people with three suitcases. Small closet space for a hotel. The other problem was getting my iPad online. I have stayed in other pensions in Europe where the iPad worked fine. Nobody could make it work even when following the hotels manual for signing on.

The breakfast is good and the location was across the street from the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) which was the reason we choose it. The rooms were very hot since their computer controlled air conditioning would not go on due to outside sensors that told the system it wasn't needed.
