“Very convenient place in Berlin”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

I spend a few nights at the Holiday Inn with my family while exploring Berlin for the first time.

This is a standard Holiday Inn Express property. The hotel seems recently renovated. Rooms and bathrooms are simple but functional and extremely clean. Beds are good but nothing fancy.

Staff is friendly. Free wi fi in the lobby and complimentary buffet breakfast.

The location is good, in a quiet street but within walking distance to Potsdamer Platz (about 10 min), with shops, restaurantes and the subway. If you like walking you can easily reach Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and other attractions. There're also a few restaurantes and a supermarket just meters away from the hotel.

The hotel also has onsite parking for about 7 EUR per day, which is highly convenient if you've a car.

I highly recommend staying here, it's a no-frills, comfortable budget hotel in a great location.

Having stopped at this hotel a couple of times I can say it is clean, value for money and perfectly situated to explore the city. A short walk from a both U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations that give full coverage of the city and outreaches. Very friendly and helpful staff made the visits very pleasant experiences. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Berlin. There are parking spaces but you need to book these seperately.

Room Tip: I don't think the location of the room was important as we stopped in both a front location and...

I spend 6 nights at this hotel with my wife.

The Holiday Inn Express City Center is very conveniently located. It is 5 minutes walk from the metro station and 10 minutes walk from Potsdamer Platz. There is a supermarket just across the street.

The rooms are basic, but the bed is excellent. There is a safe in the room. The reception staff is very friendly and helpful.

The complete breakfast is included in the rate. There is no luxury, like smoked salmon or chocolate croissants, but everything is very tasty.

When we go back to Berlin, probably we are going to stay here again.

Just got back from spending 3 nights in Berlin at the Holiday Inn Express. The reception staff were very friendly and courteous and happy to securely store our luggage until we could check in later in the day. The room itself was fine; fairly basic but did the job for a short break - our bathroom was a wet room style, which some people might not like, but was fine for us though. The rooms were quite warm though and changing the temp/fan settings didn't seem to do much, but it wasn't a major issue.
Breakfast was satisfactory as I knew what to expect; just a selection of meats, cheese and the usual continental stuff, but seeing as it was included with the room and still cheaper than other hotels in the area I was happy.
It's less than a 10 min walk to Potsdamer Platz and to Checkpoint Charlie so is well located and the general area felt safe, if not the most lively.
Overall, a good value for money hotel, well located for exploring Berlin.

I've been in Berlin for 5 days, unfortunately staying in this hotel. Only reception people deserves appreciation. They were kind, helpful and what most important - professional. The rest about this hotel is disaster. Old room with stains on carpet. TV with magic function - to change volume it is not enough to press volume up/down button - it has no effect. I discovered, that going to 'menu' function (which actually is disabled) enables volume change button (seriously) Air-con noisy with no effect on changing temperature. It heats all the time. Only potion is to turn it off. Heating/cooling - no effect. Only increasing noise on fan mode 1-3 reacts.
Bizzare toilet doors which are apparently fingers crackers. (seriously be really careful).
Welcome surprise - shower is set to maximum hot water - which is nearly boiling! Just malicious behave of houskeeping mates.
Another malicious behaviour was that after 2 days of using free sachets of regular coffee it was replenished with decaffeinated - seems like attempt of cutting usage. There was no option - I had to buy my own from nearby Netto shop.
Breakfast - only cold sandwich meat, lots of type of bread, some hard boiled eggs, jam and cereals, tea, coffee, milk - nothing impressive.
'Non smoking' hotel - so guests have to crowd in front (at December in Berlin is about 2 deg C) to smoke a cigarette. (otherwise 200 euro fine)
No utensils - toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shaving tools. There is an information, saying 'if you forgotten something - ask in reception' - I couldn't be bothered. So I bought my own in nearby 'Spate Kauf' shop from nice Asian guy.
I am just wondering, as I had no iron with me - will they expect to carry that?! There was no iron in room.

Basically, as I wrote before everything, except reception stuff seems to try to make your day bad and make you feel unwelcome.
It was a business trip so I had no choice, but will never ever choose it by myself.
I strongly NOT RECOMMEND this place.

Room Tip: Look for other hotel.

The hotel is very conveniently located near the Anhalter Bahnhof Station (S-Bahn). It's less than 5 minute walk away from the hotel, from there you can easily jump on to the S1, S2, S25 Green & Pink lines to Friedrich Strasse Station that is very well connected to the rest of the city and quiet central too. Very quiet room and friendly staff. The breakfast can get very crowded, so please check with the reception for best off-peak times, that is only in case you are not under time pressure or on a business trip. There is some room for improvement in the quality of breakfast served.. the breakfast was very boring and remained the same on all days that I stayed there (4 nights). I was a little bit disappointed to not find any fresh cut fruits.. but leaving these things aside.. This is a very good hotel and very good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room whose window faces the inner courtyard and not the street. Also try and request for ro...
