“Comfortable and central, but some service issues”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Enjoyed another stay at the Hollywood Media, this time for a week. The hotel couldn't be more centrally located in West Berlin, directly at the Kurfürstendamm – everything's available, as well as extensive transport links to other parts of the city.

The staff is welcoming and friendly, if somewhat distant, and checking in and other procedures are painless.

The room is rather spacious and in contrast to the public areas where film deco is everywhere, this is almost not the case in the rooms. Plenty of storage space and a comfortable bathroom with a tub are available. Bed, pillows and other facilities are good and adequate.

Breakfast is served until 10:30 and is very abundant, offering huge selection and good quality – a really pleasant experience. An annoyance, though, is that the staff places “reserved” signs on almost all tables they clean, and have people cramp together on the remaining tables – this is not worthy of a four star hotel.

During this stay there were problems with the air-conditioning in both mine and my companions' rooms – one too hot and too cold. Complaining about this to the reception made no diffence at all – nothing changed and no information was given back to either of us. Luckily, fiddling and experimenting with the temperature controls improved the situation, but the lack of service was still disappointing.

In all this is a very comfortable, and well-located hotel. From previous stays I would have given it a five, but the (still minor) staff issues mentioned steals a point this time. Regardless, I'd be happy to return.

I've been staying here on a regular basis for more then ten years, and always look forward to coming back.

The hotel is always clean and tidy, with a sumptuous breakfast.

Being located on the Kurfurstendamm means that excellent shopping and eating opportunities are never far away.

Very modern, well furnished hotel. Great service and fantastic full breakfast buffet with a huge variety of pastries, hot food, cold food, fruit, and drinks. We stayed in a family room, which was huge. Fantastic bathroom. They have one allergy-free floor.

Excellent location -- near S-Bahn and U-Bahn stops.

I highly recommend it for families. Check the website for deals. Very reasonably priced if you get one of their online deals.

there are plenty of hotel choices in Berlin, however we simply make straight for the Hollywood Media Hotel. Slightly quirky but very comfortable and always reasonable priced. The hotel is owned by a German film director so is individual rather than an anonymous part of an international chain.
All the rooms are of an excellent standard. We opted for an upgraded room which means it is slightly larger with a huge window giving a good view.
Really well placed for the bars and restaurants of Savigny Platz as well as all the shops on Kurfurstenamm.
Sine we last stayed there about three years ago the Media Hotel has maintained it's high standards and value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
[Live like a film-star] The Hollywood Media Hotel Berlin, located directly by the Kurfurstendamm, pays homage to the films, international stars and unforgettable film legends. A private hotel convinces you with its individual and family ambience and is popular with city trips as well as business travellers. The location of this unique themed hotel, by the famous shopping mile, in direct contact to the zoological gardens, the famous Gedachtniskirche (remembrance church) and only a few minutes away from the Potsdam Square, creates the ideal starting point for a discovery tour through this vibrant German capital. The theme "Films" and "Hollywood" are picked up throughout the hotel. Guests can very closely experience a slice of film history during a walk through the hotel in various themed areas. Unique set images and photos of films as well as posters of the Berlin film director and hotel owner, Artur Brauner, complete this cinematic atmosphere. Each of the 182 rooms and apartments is named after a famous actor or a film legend and equipped with a portrait and a biography. If you prefer the classical elegance of a film diva like Marlene Dietrich or the revolutionary charm of a certain James Dean, each guest will become a star during his/her visit. The guest plays the leading role from the very first minute and will enjoy the convenience of a true film-star. Hotel guest can experience the luxury of a champagne breakfast in the "Bel Air" restaurant. This restaurant is also available for meetings and groups for lunch, or dinner in the evening. This Berlin film hotel also offers its meeting and hotel guests a modern smoking lounge. The hotel's own film studio "Neue Lupe" with a stage, is suitable for traditional film shows and presentations, or can serve as a meeting room or press conference. Each event is effectively staged in one of the 9 conference rooms. You would like to escape from the stress of the day? Then come and relax in our "Cleopatra". That is the name of our wellness centre on the sixth floor of the hotel. Guests dive into an ancient Egyptian comfort-landscape and get pampered like the famous queen of Egypt. Modern cardio-equipment for a personal workout, a Finnish dry sauna, a steam bath and an experience shower with a tingling rain effect offer the guests a diversified programme. Individual massages and cosmetic treatments must be booked separately. The Callas Bar attached to the hotel is set up in the style of America in the sixties. Drink a cocktail under the black and white portrait of Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's", and let your gaze be drawn to the lively goings-on in the Kurfurstendamm. The new Italian restaurant "Capone" with seating on the Kurfurstendamm, provides all the sumptuous needs of our guests and also offers room-service. Linger awhile and dream of luxury and glamour, starlets and idols, you can experience all this in the Berlin film hotel and be treated as the major player in a cinematic setting. ... more   less
