Room is very basic, but good value for money. Reception staff always ready to help.
Continental breakfast with a good choice. Easy access to main city attractions, approx. 400m to the nearest metro station.

Usual stuff really, clean, functional and a "you know what you're getting" breakfast thrown in. Made more memorable by the good reception staff and the welcome that they gave me and my colleague. Well done HIE Berlin, you staff are trained (and still training) well, it made a difference to a dull business trip.

Room Tip: odd numbered rooms are at the rear, and therefore quieter.

Stayed for 3 nights when visiting Berlin in October. Our first visit to Berlin and this hotel is conveniently located for visiting central Berlin. The hotel was very clean and our top floor room more than adequate for a short break. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, and our only minor irritation was that the staff struggled to clear tables quickly during very busy periods.
Internet access was available in the hotel lobby and additionally pcs were available free for guest use - these , however, tended to be dominated by children and young adults often surfing the net or playing computer games - perhaps a polite notice could be put up suggesting a time limit when other guests are waiting ?
the nearest station is a few minutes walk away, Checkpoint Charlie, the Judisches Museum, the Topography of Terror and Potsdamer Platz are all within easy walking distance and a small supermarket and keenly priced restaurants are opposite the hotel
overall, a good value for money hotel in a convenient location and would certainly use it again if returning to Berlin

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms to the side of the hotel are fairly quiet if you need the window open

We stayed whilst on a short break to Berlin. It is in the heart of Berlin and 5 mins from the station. It has a large breakfast area (nice touch is the signs in the lift advising of busy times and the local weather!).

The hotel is very clean. The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English. It had 6 floors and we were on the top floor with a sign on the door saying IHG members room.

The hotel has 2 lifts and the tv has 40 different channels including main ones for UK.

We would stay again and a perfect compliment to our stay.

I was in Berlin on business in January and moved for one night to this Hotel after staying at the Intercontinental nearby for 4 nights.

I was not expecting it to be anything like the 5* Intercontinental, but it wasn't like the two other Holiday Inn Express Hotels that I have stayed at in the past, i.e. The HIE at Frankfurt Airport and the HIE at Zurich Airport. I thought it would be fine for two more nights I needed in Berlin and save some money.

It had everything one needed for a short stay and it was clean. The breakfast was adequate, but not as good as the aforementioned HIE's. Canned pineapple and old 'fresh fruit' available in a bowl was not great, but the rest was okay and there was plenty available.

Location was good for getting around, although not attractive, but that was not an issue to me.

Lighting for reading was actually better than the Intercontinental.

I got back late from a Tradefair assuming there was a bar open and I could get a snack as I was able to do at other HIE's, but there was no food available at all, not even a sandwich. I found this most unsatisfactory as it was cold, raining and late and I did not feel like going to a restaurant nearby after a long day working.

I decided to check out the next day and move back to the Intercontinental and pay the extra.

In essence there is nothing particularly wrong with the hotel, the staff were friendly and the location is good for public transport, KaDeWe, supermarkets etc. and it is cheap, but I would rather pay more and stay in a hotel that is less basic.

Dear loverofmilan,

Thank you for taking time to create a review about our hotel.
It is always a pleasure to have feedback from our guest.
I´m sorry that we could not provide you fully satisfactory.
Opposite the hotel there are two restaurants (Italian 1x and 1x German) both are open until 23:00. They would also be able to instruct a pizza delivery service directly through the front desk.

On your next trip to Berlin, we would be pleased to welcome you back at the Holiday Inn Express Berlin City Center.

I stayed at this hotel while on a weekend trip to Berlin. Honestly I did not expect much other than a small bed and a TV, but I was plesantly surprised when I checked in. The hotel was located near metro and bus stops, though the location was not that impressive. The hotel was not too far away from Potsdamer platz to be very honest, but major city attractions are a good distance away. But because of the metro and bus connections, it was not too difficult to reach the place of interest of ones choice. About the hotel - the facade was nice and welcoming. The staff was quite polite and helpful. The rooms were quite spacious and very clean with well-made beds. The shower and WC area were clean as well, though the shower floor could have been deeper to prevent water from flowing out. There was also a coffee machine in the room, which was a nice feature as well. The breakfast was excellent with a variety of cereals, breads, cheeses, meats and fruit. Overall the hotel was good value for the money spent, although it was not as inexpensive as some of the reviewers have mentioned. I would recommend this hotel for people who do not mind using the public transport system for travel to the main parts of Berlin or for those who have their own vehicles.
