“Comfortable room, conveniently located”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Large room, clean enough, conveniently located. Right across the street from U2 subway. Hotel is not in the center of town but just minutes on the U2. We could get almost anywhere from there with no problem. Several buses outside the door.
Room was clean enough but dusty under the beds(I dropped something under the bed) Staff very helpful all the time. We originally asked for 2 beds but got 1 when we arrived. The receptionist changed rooms immediately with no fuss and was very accommodating. The only negative was the lighting. It was impossible to read in bed or anywhere in the room because of the poor lighting. We asked for reading lamps and were given 1 that night and another one was brought in the next morning. Well worth the price. Will stay there again this summer.

This hotel is modern, clean and centrally located (U-Bahn and S-Bahn close by). Schönberg is not the greatest area but rooms are incredibly spacious and wifi is free, quick and works perfectly. I paid € 28 a night - a real steal even for Berlin.

We first went to this hotel in the summer of 2011, and came back to celebrate NYE 2012 here. The hotel is really good for it's price, the rooms are quite spacious and clean, the beds are good (never wanted to get out) and the bathroom is also spacious and clean. The first time we had a room situated across the metro station and last time situated at the courtyard, both are good. It's literally next to the U bahn Bulowstrasse station and only a small walk from the Kurfurstenstrasse U bahn station. The neighbourhood is fine, there is a supermarket nearby and a kebab shop on the corner across. Not many restaurants around, but that's not a problem seeing as it is so close to the metro.
The only thing is that we didn't book the breakfast as it's a bit on the expensive side, we got sandwiches from the shop in Kurfurstenstrasse in de morning, 2 for 4 euro's including a bottle of water.

We stayed 3 nights around New Year as it is located close to where we were partying. Close to U bahn station but there were few nice restaurants in the area so you had to take the train to go everywhere. I would go closer into the main part of the city next time. The hotel and staff are very nice and I would recommend otherwise.

Stayed for 5 nights in December. Easy to get to with U Bahn station next to it. Cheap eats in nearby Kebab stores. Convenient location for visiting major attractions with Potsdamer Platz 10 mins away on bus. Nice room and very clean as well.

Only problem is the very soft and flat pillow which is quite uncomfortable to sleep on. Kettles are only available if you ask the reception as well.

Overall very good given price for the stay is cheaper than private twin bed rooms in a good hostel.

Room Tip: If you are looking for twin beds call the hotel a week before arriving.

We had a huge room for 4 friends with a double and 2 single beds and loooooads of space. Really great hotel with helpful friendly staff. The hotel is in a really good location as it is just across the road from the train station and has few cafes and supermarkets near by. I would defiantly stay here again!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms seemed to be huge and loads of space for a group.

I have just returned from my 3rd trip to Berlin in as many years and as I booked somewhat last minute, I was pleased to find a hotel that offered both good value and convenience. The City B, did not disappoint.

Located directly opposite Bulowstrasse U-Bahn station, the hotel offers access to most of Berlin with ease and simplicity.

Despite being opposite the U-Bahn station, If travelling from Schonefeld airport, the most direct route is to take the bus to Rudow and then the U-7 U-Bahn to Kleistpark and take a 10 minute walk up Potsdamer Strasse.

If you wanted to take the U-Bahn directly to the hotel, then this would involve the bus to Rudow, the U-7 to Bayischerplatz the U-4 to Nollendorfplatz and then the U-2 to Bulowstrasse.

I booked a comfort room and was most pleased by the size of the room, the amount of storage space and the inclusion of a kitchenette unit. The only downsides of the room were that it was very hot, that the kitchenette offered no utensils, just a sink, microwave and a fridge and that the step from the shower was quite large and could be difficult for those with limited mobility.

The breakfast is 7.5 euros which seems good value - there are 2 types of egg, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurts, cereals and fresh fruit on offer and the bread basket was just great to delve into. Drinks wise, you have coffee, tea and herbal tea along with water and fresh juices.

There is no room service at the hotel and no evening meal service, but you are certainly not short of eating establishments in the immediate area. A vending machine in reception does however provide a selection of drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic).

Overall, the hotel offers a good standard of accommodation in a convenient location that is just 2/3 stops away from the Ku'Damm shopping area and probably 7/8 stops to the main tourist attractions that Berlin has to offer,
