“Super city hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Very cute, centrally located hotel. You are 5 minutes walk from Hackeschen Höffe - amazing location. The service was very friendly, first I got a room facing the street, which I thought was going to be noisy and the lady at the reception exchanged it for another one facing the courtyeard. Yes, the rooms are rather on the smaller side, but for a city trip with few nights - absolutely perfect. We loved the design of the room and the bathroom.

Room Tip: take a room facing the courtyeard - qieter

The Monbijou hotel is situated in the Mitte district of Berlin - near the Hackenshun Mkt - it was just a stones throw from a good selection of restaurants and near the river Spree and the Museum Island. Although in the old East it is ideally situated only a few minutes from the Alexanderplatz.

Berlin has a joined up transport system so it is easy to get round the city and relatively cheap - you can get a Berlin card or do it by daily tickets. A great alternative are the hop on hop off city tours - we took a two day ticket which included a boat ride for 25 Euro. You can do most of the sites this way. Berlin has become tourist city - but there are a huge number of building works going on (it will be nice when it is finished).

Food and drink are not expensive - at pretty good restaurants 4 of us ate out for around 80 Euro including wine and beer. The food is ok but not a gastronomic delight - you get what you pay for.

The hotel was very good - very modern with a nice roof garden - the breakfast was good and at 14 Euro may seem expensive but if you eat out and want an English breakfast it soon mounts up when you include coffee or tea - so treat yourself.

There is not much not to like about the hotel - but remember it is a boutique hotel so the rooms are slightly small - but ok for a city break. Also since the air conditioning is centrally controlled it does not allow adjusting so when it was hot the air conditioning was not that good.

We liked the hotel - it had good ambiance and the staff were excellent - it is a good deal at the price.

The reason I did not give the full 5 stars is only because of the size of the rooms and the air conditioning- in all other aspects it was excellent.

Room Tip: We had a room looking into the courtyard - which was mostly great - but breakfast is served there in...

So the three things I look for in a hotel are: cleanliness, location and breakfast. On these three criteria Monbijou gets a perfect score! We had an angle suite on the third floor and it was spacious and spotless. A huge bathtub and a shower with ginger scented soaps, shampoos and creams! The breakfast was just amazing: lots of breads (fresh and warm), croissants, homemade yogurts, jams, cold cuts, fruits, salads, veggies and a number of hot dishes options! Lots of juices, coffee machines and teas galore (none of that tea bags nonsense). We had a hard time getting out of there in the morning. It costs €14 per person and well worth it in my opinion. Last, but not least, location, location, location! Just a few minutes walk to the Hackescher Market (must explore), Museum Islands and just about every other major attraction. If you want to explore Berlin by foot, this is a great place! The staff was friendly and helpful and a complementary bottle of water in the room was a nice touch. I know exactly where I will be staying on my next trip to Berlin!

Room Tip: Corner suite was great!

Monbijou is a newly built hotel and its in a great location. My room however was quite small, next to the lift and looked into the courtyard (despite me paying a what I consider to be a reasonably high price). I was disappointed that there was not a bath, even though I requested this on arrival. I also requested an early check-in and late check out which were both denied unless I paid a further premium. I found the receptionist curt and unfriendly. The best things about the hotel are its location - close to Oranienburger Strasse, Auguststrasse and Hackeshcer Market and the Spree and also the breakfast (which is not included). The room itself was definitely not great value - overall I preferred the Amano down the road for its outlook, bar and better value price...

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the road as opposed to the courtyard.

The location is great, with the station a 2 minute walk and a pleasant 10 min walk to museum island. Great cosy bar/ lounge area to read and have a drink. Room was small- but we were aware of this. We slept very well, the beds were very comfortable. Only downside is the room size, but I would stay there again,

Room Tip: Choose to face the courtyard for less noise

The location of this hotel could not have been better for me, a solo traveler. It was just around the corner from the train station and many restaurants and attractions. The terrace at the top offered a spectacular view of Berlin and many of my best photos were taken from that viewpoint. I did not purchase breakfast because I do not care for such a big meal in the morning, but I saw that it was beautifully served. Free internet access was great and several English channels on TV were available. Yes, it is small but it had everything I needed. All in all, it was the perfect place for me!

This hotel is in a great location, easy to get to the airport, metro, trams and buses. Easy walk to Museum Island. Loads of restaurants nearby. Gorgeous breakfast with special little touches. Cosy fire in the lounge to warm you on wintry nights.

Room Tip: Very modern rooms
