“cheap, comfortable, quiet and convenient”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Hotel is in a good location on a quiet street, within walking distance of many sights. Hotel is cheap with no extras that I did not really need. Reception was efficient. Room was basic but bed was comfortable and it was quiet.

ActualIy i make a mistake with my reservation,we traveled with my 8 yrs old son, and want to reserve a room in ibis hotel and i did not know there are two ibis hotel one is budget and the other one in normal 3star hotel. thats why i was shock n scared when i saw at the reception a lot of teens standing.. I thought "ohh this hotel are for Partys,for young ones and realized i make a mistake".but since the rooms is paid in advanced i have no choise but to take it.but when we are on our room i realize i was mistaken.. the hotel are very silence and since we are in the non smoking room you can really assure its a non smoking room,not only the room but the whole floor (6th floor)..i was amaze for the very cheap price ive got a very clean room with 3 bath towel,3 hand towel 3 blanket...the rooms dont have a mini bar but it wasnt a problem since there are restaurant... i would tell all my friends to stay in this hotel if they go to berlin, its worth it for the price... keep up guys..

Room Tip: since my family dont smoke i would advice to the non smoker a non smoker room..

Simple rooms with a separate toilet, but the sink and shower cubicle are in the corner of the room, so no privacy when washing up if you are traveling with someone. No wardrobe or any other space for your clothes, just a few hangers. Suits fine whe traveling alone and no intention to spend time in a hotel room except for a sleep.

Breakfast is quite simple too, and maybe not worth the money. I´m sure you can get better with the same price from some nearby restaurant.

Free wi-fi in the rooms was a surprise for me, thought it was offered only in the lobby area. Worked smoothly.

All in all, I would go again because of the reasonable prices, but maybe try breakfast somewhere else next time.

Clean rooms were ok, if rather basic and small. Good location near the centre and public transportation (bus and train). Service was average, but ok for our needs. Would recommend it for budget travellers.

Zero complaints-clean rooms, friendly front desk staff, great location, great price. I paid $72 a night in late April for a standard double room with private bath, so especially good deal if you are splitting that cost with your travel companion. Great option for budget travelers who don't want to stay in a hostel or shared room/shared bath situation but also don't want to break the bank. Several S-bahn and U-bahn stations are 3-6 minute walk away. Checkpoint Charlie, Topography of Terror, Unter Den Linden Street, Brandenburg Gate, Tiergarten park are all a 3-15 minute walk fom the hotel. Also easy to get to Museum Island and Alexanderplatz-maybe more like a 20ish min walk.

I guess the only negative is that if you are sharing a room and are a private person, you will feel uncomfortable that the shower/sink are out in the open. Hard to describe, but I personally had no problems with it. Towels and bar soap provided, but no hair dryer or extras like that.

Very good value for money and at a decent location- trains running to city center every 3-4 mins. Rooms are ok type but if you think of the budget,they are what you can get at that price!
1. The child's bunker had a screw half-inserted that resulted in a minor bruise to my sonny. Fortunately, that was a no-blood affair.
2. The front desk is seriously understaffed- that affects their mood. This is apart from the fact that I had to wait for 10 minutes just to collect my deposited luggage.
3 (i.e. 2.5) The room was still being swiped when we reached the room. The wet floor compelled us three to wait near the door till the floor dried up.
All said and done, I would stay in the same hotel chain next time, but may not be at this particular hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the road. Otherwise, at night, you can't open the window in case you fe...

You get what you pay for. Basic rooms, with basic comfort and a basic breakfast buffet. Very friendly personnel ! Excellent location, just a few meters from "Anhalter (S-)bahnhof". Very clean and secure underground parking facilities are available for €12/day.
