I've given the hotel an overall four star rating based on value for money and efficient and friendly service. The bar was very pleasant and the breakfast room more than adequate. The room was a little spartan, but it is after all a budget hotel and we only slept in it. One negative point was that our first room was very hot (the ac only functioned as a heater) and opening the window made it too noisy. We were, however, immediately given a quieter room at the back when we raised this at reception. The location wasn't ideal, especially in the very cold weather, but the east railway station was just across the road and the underground a relatively short walk away. Overall we were very satisfied.

The hotel needs to provide more towels, one thin one is not enough. There should also be a bath mat when one steps out of the shower. The shower drainage needs to be checked regularly; I had to shower standing in ankle-high soap water.

For a brief business trip, covering a conference outside the city, this hotel has everything that is required. However, I am sufficiently impressed to plan to stay at the same hotel for an upcoming week's holiday in Berlin (its central location meant that I wsa able to see enough of Berlin from the train to the conference to make me want to return)r

We stayed at the Ibis Berlin for 1 night as we have an apartement for the rest of our time here.

I actually was suprised when my husband said the Ibis is only a 2 star hotel. Room was basic but very clean. Bed comfortable and ncie size room. Our flight got in at 7am and we got to the hotel around 9ish and they checked us straight into a room which was really great.

We had an amazing view of the TV tower which was also very nice. The hotel is a two minute walk to a main train s-bahn station. I would suggest this hotel to anyone who wants a cheap Berlin say.

Oh by the way, we paid 110 euro for the room and 10 euro each for breakfast which was all the basics and well worth it!!! Had all the usuals and more.

We stayed here for three days and two nights. When we first arrived. The neighborhood seemed pretty sketchy and dirty, but it didn't let my hopes down just yet. We arrived to our very small room, nice and clean, but very small (just enough room for beds, and a few suitcases). The bathroom in our room was also nice, clean and updated (still very small, but that's what you're going to get in Europe). We had a good sleep on the very comfortable beds, no noise, no disturbance. Breakfast the next morning was the best part. They have EVERYTHING and it's all great food, too. The hotel also has a nice bar and a lounge area. There is also a FREE computer with FREE internet in the hotel lobby (most European travel hotels have computers, but you have to pay for them). We had a nice two night stay here at the Ost(east) Berlin ibis, it seemed to be a great travel hotel. The only thing I have to complain is the surrounding area is NOT the most desirable parts of Berlin (also quite boring). But the good thing about the location is the big East Train Station which is just a short walk down the block.

Stayed there for two nights in the cheapest room.

It's a no-frills hotel designed to satisfy your basic sleeping and shower needs. Room has a bed, a shower, towels, small old TV with 20 mostly german channels and that's it. Rooms are very clean though. Staff is efficient and not too nice but you shouldn't have any interaction with them besides the check-in.

What I was missing the most is an in-room safety deposit box (How expensive could these be???) which is standard in almost every hotel these days.

Location is 100 meters from the ostbahnhof, which is east Berlin's central train station, and has very frequent trains that will take you anywhere in Berlin very quickly.

Anyway for this price (75 euro per night) this is what you'll get everywhere in Berlin.
