Reviewed June 6, 2013

The Kastanienhof is perfectly located in East Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg district. There are 35 rooms, breakfast/bar area, complimentary WiFi on the 1st floor only but LAN access for laptops in each room. The staff is helpful, suggesting restaurants, directions, etc. The #M1 tram stop Zionkirche is only 20 yds from the front door, connecting you to the S-Bahn & U-Bahn. Plenty of restaurants and shops along Kastanienallee.

We loved the hotel! The location was great for us, it was exceptionally clean and had a friendly, helpful staff. If I return to Berlin, I will stay there again. We enjoyed the local restaurants and being in the neighborhood. Even though the breakfast was not included, it was worth the additional charge. Free WiFi was available in certain areas, but would have been nice if access was in our room. We highly recommend this hotel!

I've been coming to this hotel in Prenzlauer Berg for over 10 years now. It is perfect; good price; nice staff; good breakfast and ideally situated for the Mitte (2 trams whisk you to Friedrichstasse in less than 10 mins) and Prenzlauer Berg with its tree lined streets and many good restaurants.

Room Tip: The street side has a bit of tram noise so ask for a room overlooking the courtyard

Couple of nights in November - Berlin is great and Hotel worked well both public transport and by taxi. It's small in what was East Berlin typical small city centre layout great for in and out. Was a bit mousy with the teams but also convent because of the trams.

Super nice and helpful staff. Room was very clean and pretty spacious for the money.
Also great location right in Berlin Mitte, with many shops, restaurants and public transportation close by. They offer a lot of things for families with kids too.

The Kastanienhof Hotel is well appointed, spotlessly clean with excellent transport connections. It is surrounded by wonderfull cafés and restaurants. Above all the staff and management are very welcoming and friendly. They go the extra mile for their English guests. I feel at home in the Kastanienhof.

The Hotel was in a good location in the old East Berlin.From the airport you take the S9 train for about 40 mins (3 euros) to schonehauser allee and then the M1 tram which drops you at the door. If you want to go into town just jump on the trams.The hotel was clean and good value, the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Berlin is too big and spread out to see in a few days so take the city tour from Alexander Platz for 16 euro which takes you to 15-16 points of interest, brandenberg gate, checkpoint charlie, reichstadt etc. you can jump on or off at any of the locations and another bus is past 15 minutes later. All in all a great trip with a clean friendly hotel to have as a base.Plenty of cafes and bars in the area but never seemed many people in any of them and a good thai massage by the church and 200mtrs away.

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor and just about right
