We popped in for a drink while we were checking out the East Side gallery and honestly thought the hotel was a sleazy motel due to the soft porn pic's everywhere. Thankfully, it turned out to be a decent place for a beer, non sleazy, nice friendly barman although a little pricey.

I stayed in the hotel with my girlfriend as we were trying to stay longer in berlin so our options based on looking something affordable which made us consider this hotel as our option. starting with the one side of the coin,First of all,the hotel is ok, as its close to the train stations, so getting to the city centre or any part of berlin is a click on your finger tips,(big up for that), secondly, the hotel staffs were really really friendly and helpful, and thirdly, the breakfast was good over the hotel value. The other side of the coin is, The room they first gave us was less more value than a cheapest hostel you can ever imagine, but we complained on it then they gave us a top floor which was ok looking room, and those are the one you see on their hotel room images. other problem with the hotel was about the bed since it was kind of broken as you feel better sleep on the floor (since they dont have sofas in the rooms as you see on the picture) rather than the bed we found in the room. also there is no wifi internet reach in the top floor, so we were suppose to go down the bar/restaurant to get a wifi and this was such a disappointment i most felt. also the room TV have less than 4 boring germany channels only. another thing is the noice from the main road since their windows are not sound proof which forced us to wakeup early everyday as u can not sleep more than 6am and it was also supported with the sun light getting all in your room since the curtains were so thin. Therefore, i recommend this hotel to high school teenagers or something like that but not for couples or other backpackers since we found out that, in berlin there are alot other cheap hotels worthing the price.

Room Tip: rooms facing the gallery side have a good view but noice since they are close to main road, beware to take the other side since you will end up having a garage view.

We booked this hotel for our stay while running the Berlin Marathon in 2011. The location is fine, its near clubs and restaurants although a little outside the center of Berlin. Its very close to transport so no compaints. The rooms are basic but clean. My only complaint would be that there are no blackout blinds so you wake up when the sun comes up. The staff are very good and friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good and theres a good atmosphere in the bar in the evenings. Overall good option for a budget weekend but budget is the word!

Room Tip: call the hotel directly, I paid over the odds through expedia

We found a great deal for this hotel. I was aware that it was a little out of town, but for the price we were willing to compromise. The rooms are very clean, quality of towels good - in fact the quality of the room was better than many 4 star hotels I have stayed in previously. It's very close to public transport, the M5,M6 are just around the corner - which take you directly to Alexander Plats. We had a quick drink at the New Orleans bar (part of the shared hotel bar with Holiday Inn) which was OK, although a bit dowdy and depressing if you're still in your 20's :-) On the downside, they charge €3.50 for water in the hotel rooms (although don't mention the price anywhere in the room) plus reserve €150 to your credit card for security without even telling you (even if the room is paid for!) ... which annoyed me immensely. So besides these two downers, would definitely recommend the hotel to a group of friends, or family looking for a cheap, clean option. Wouldn't recommend it to a couple for a romantic weekend though ;-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room in House 3. More modern than House2

The East Side Hotel is a good Hotel for the price. It is in a trendy neighborhood full of nightlife and convenient to the train station. Our room had lovely view of the parking lot of a construction equipment company, but I don't travel to stay in the hotel room either. The only problem is that they're moving equipment pretty early each morning. The hotel is reasonably clean, not perfect, but you're not paying for a four star hotel either. I would skip the breakfast. It says they have wifi in all the all rooms, but we could only get anything useful in the lobby or bar. One word of caution, there's no air conditioning and no screens, which is not unusual, but it can be a problem if you are outrageously allergic to insect bites like me it can be a problem.
