Gold Hotel
Ranked #311 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed September 21, 2009

This hotel, outside the Mitte, is a hidden bargain. Rooms are modest but very adequate. Free wi-fi in the rooms, too, which is above and beyond what a lot of hotels offer.

It's two blocks from a subway stop, which makes getting into the center of town easy. It's not near many significant tourist sites, but is well located for dining. There are numerous restaurants and coffeeshops just a few blocks away, where you can get everything from great Thai food to classic schnitzel.

The hotel's own breakfast buffet is great - eggs, hot meats, cold cuts, cheese, bread, cereal, etc.

Some staff speak English, too, and will help with everything from directions to dining recommendations.

The neighborhood doesn't look so great when you first get there - there is a lot of graffiti, for example. However, we didn't have any problems at all. The neighborhood is rather artsy, with lots of young adults.

Downsides are: Smoking still is permitted in the hotel, so you could smell some residual smoke in the hallway There really isn't any room service or hotel restaurant. Also, there is a kindergarten nearby that can get noisy certain days (but only in the late morning-early afternoon). Finally, like many smaller hotels, there is no air-conditioning, so those visiting during the hot summer months might prefer another place.

I stayed here for Christmas & New Year's Eve 2004. I found it a very pleasant and comfortable hotel. Mind you at that time it lacked a restaurant or bar but drinks and snacks may be purchased at reception and enjoyed either in your room or in the nice enclosed garden room. The staff was extremely pleasant and courteous.

It located in a very safe part of town and there were always taxis parked out front to whisk you whereever you desired. The only problem I encountered was returning to the hotel from the western part of Berlin, many taxi drivers couldn't find it (mind you, my German is extremely poor) I later learnt that it might be helpful if you asked for specific directions (get them to write it down for you) from reception.

All in all, it was a very comfortable above average budget hotel.

My daughter and I shared a twin room for 5 nights. It was rather small, but clean and comfortable. The only problem was that it faced the front street and was quite noisy, as taxi stand is below. The windows blocked the noise, but needed to be open, as it was hot.
We asked for a room facing the back, which would have been nice, but they were full. Lovely hotel, generous breakfast, nice solarium/ garden area. Staff very friendly and helpful. We will return, and ask for a back room.
