Hotel Mondial
Ranked #199 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 13, 2013

CONTEXT
A five-night first trip to Berlin from Sunday 7th April Friday 12th. Tourism.

PROS
The hotel is pleasant and attractive, combining old-fashioned features with new.

Location. The hotel is on Kurfurstendamm, a well-heeled boulevard stretching westwards out of the centre of West Berlin. The area boast cosmopolitan restaurants, shops and other features. It is a fifteen-minute walk from Zoologischer Garden station, there are subway (Kurfurstendamm) and overground stations nearby (Savignyplatz), and buses run from in front of the hotel into other parts of Berlin at a regular basis (I recommend the all-in travel card which covers all of these and encompasses a wide-radius out of the city too). The hotel is situated close to Berlins’ top jazz clubs: A-Trane and Quasimodo, great for an evening’s entertainment.

Rooms are pleasant, clean and spacious. I had the Classic Double room, which is more than enough space for one person. There is a Nespresso-style coffee machine in rooms, and mini-bar/fridge.

Pool. Not very large, but suitable for gentle swimming and relaxation.

Free sauna and steam room. The steam room was out of order for the duration of my stay, and the sauna was not working for the first two days (I had to constantly remind staff about this before it was fixed). If this is an important feature for you, check with the hotel in advance that these facilities are working. The good thing is that they are provided at no extra cost. Furthermore, I was provided with a gown and slippers for this facility at no extra cost.

The hotel has an attractive bar, although this was shut on the night of my arrival.

Restaurant. I did not eat here, but the menu looked good with its modern take on German cuisine (prices above average).

CONS
The cleaning staff get to work very early in comparison to most hotels (8am). My room, 605, was next door to the cleaning staff’s service cupboard for the sixth floor, and I was often woken up by them beginning work in the morning. If you think this will bother you, ask for a room away from there, bring ear plugs, etc.

Whilst a pro of the area is certainly its attractive location, sometimes it was hard to find somewhere to have a quiet drink and relax. To the north of the hotel at a few blocks’ distance is the Union Jack bar (Irish-style decor, impressive range of single-malt whiskeys, UK-pub name!), and within fifty metres of that the Goethe bar (an authentic Berliner bar with local beers, friendly locals and thick with smoke!). Alternatively, head up to the Europa Centre where there are lots of restaurants and bars.

CONCLUSION
The Mondial is a great hotel for a few nights comfortable stay in a large city that is demanding on the tourist. If your budget allows, then I can but recommend this hotel for its service, facilities and location. After a long day, the sauna and pool was a blessing for the weary tourist who had wandered around the city all day, and the proximity of the Jazz clubs was also a very good think for afforable live music and entertainment.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms numbered X05 - they are next to the service cupboards that the cleaners use and this may...

Because of a massive traffic jam we arrived at twelf in the evening and missed our dinner.
Nevertheless this was a nice buffet prepared.
The rooms were perfect, good size and a specious bathroom.
The staff was friendliy.
The hotel is perfect situated not far from the center and one of the most lovely bars " das Klo".
You have to go there.
We stayed 4 nights, and are sure that we will come back.

We arrived at our hotel at 7pm on Sunday evening. The hotel was in a great position on the Kurdam easy bus service 109 from the airport only 2.40 euros. We were given a room on the 4th floor and were very happy bathroom had a walk in shower and the facilities were great especially the hair dryer. The only thing missing was tea/coffee making facilities in the room. It had the usual tv and fridge. We did not use the restaurant but for 3 out of the 4 nights had a nightcap in the Bar and was made to feel welcome by Muller the Barman who was lovely and the service was excellent. The hotel does have an 80's feel but it was great and we would definitely go back as we had such a good time in Berlin.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 4th floor at the back of the building so very quiet.

The Mondial is situated at the Kurfuerstendamm in the center of Berlin. It has easy access to public transportation and the airport.
The rooms are average, though on the small side, but given the good price it is ok. Reception staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is a pleasant surprise, only the choice of bread could be better.
The hotel sports a nice bar, which, especially for a hotel of this size, is rather unusual.
Overall, definitely a good choice for a Berlin trip.

We stayed for four nights at the Mondial. We got a great value deal and it is in an ideal location with very easy access to any part of the City,via train or tube. Was also very easy from Schönefeld airport. Very polite welcome and were given our room early. Modern and clean with pretty much all that you need in your room. Coffee/tea making facilities were the only absence which should be a must in a 4 star establishment such as this. Lovely swimming pool and sauna facilities which we made use of every day. We did not eat or drink in the Hotel so cannot score it on that. Hotel is very well located for bakeries so you can enjoy breakfast out if you wish. I thought also that bathrobes could have been provided as they have an in house spa. Apart from these few little points would have given it a 5 star score. Otherwise would highly recommend this Hotel and would definitely visit again when in Berlin.

I spent the weekend here, primarily to go to Deutsche Oper, but also to see something of Berlin. The hotel was clean, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Kurfurstendamm is a smart shopping street: I bought a teddy bear for my grandson at Steiff, just 5 mins walk away. There are very good public transport links from nearby. I used the buses and S-bahn (Savignyplatz). The single room was comfortable and well appointed. The restaurent was pleasant, though I only took breakfast (which was very good) there. The hotel bar did not open on the Sunday.

Room Tip: I suspect rooms at the back (away from the road) might be the quieter option. I had one and is was v...

Well located on Kurfurstendamm, the hotel is close to transport, shopping and restaurants and bars.Rooms are a bit dated and cleaning was inconsistent. Advertised as four star, this is probably not the case. Breakfast also was a bit hit and miss. Wifi is included but very slow. Service at times was very good, other times very poor. Parking also available, although limited. Overall, if you can get a room at a good rate, not a bad option.
