Select Hotel Berlin Checkpoint Charlie
Ranked #145 of 635 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I stayed here for four or five days in Nov. 2011 and enjoyed it well enough. The hotel is just down the street from Checkpoint Charlie, and pretty well situated for transit links and walking about downtown. It's not fancy, and I'd say it is more geared toward a business crowd than anything else, but the rooms were clean, well maintained and the hotel seemed secure and safe. No complaints.

Stayed in this hotel for 2-3 nights on business and mainly chose it because it has been offered by a business partner on a special discount.

I would say it is an average hotel in this category: nothing especially negative, nothing especially positive that I could recall. The rooms are nice and modern, decorated with comics of Berlin sights.

Breakfast is rather expensive and can easily be avoided, as there are plenty of bakeries and small cafes in the area offering substantially cheaper morning treats.

The Berlin Mitte subway stop is just around the corner!

The hotel has been recently renovated and is of very good standard. The reception staff spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful. Room and en-suite were very clean, flat screen TV with BBC and Sky News channels together with the usual CNN, CCN etc..
The location is very good, a five minute walk from Friedrichstrasse U Bahn (N.B. at present the U Bahn is closed north of here for engineering works so you have to approach from the south). Checkpoint Charlie is adjacent to the U Bahn station.
Black marks though for (1) no tea/coffee making facility in room and (2) The breakfast costs 14 euros and is only average. There are excellent places nearby where you may have a really nice continental breakfast much cheaper.
The bar was pleasant and not overly expensive.

Good rather than very good hence only 3 stars- stayed 2 nights.clean rooms I didnt like the corridors with the automatic lights- it seemed too dark before they came on although obviously a good green credential-and thought the hotel lacked atmosphere. However we were out sight seeing all day and it didnt really matter. They had ran out of extra blankets and the room took a while to warm up. Excellent deli for lunch on the corner and at the other end on wilhemestrasse just near the asador restaurent there is a plain cafe/bakery serving coffee& croissants so not worth paying for breakfast in the hotel

Me and my partner went on a short break to Berlin - found an amazing deal on 'Last Minute.Com'. Usually a deal that is too good to be true usually is - but thankfully not in this case. We found the hotel no problem - did not need a taxi as the Berlin transport system is superb. First impressions were good, staff great, reception area fab - but we could not check in until later - so we left our bags and started our mega sightseeing marathon! Fantastic location - you can get just about every where on the tour buses - very good value for money too. We returned to our hotel later on in the afternoon - shattered. Got a large drink from the bar and we were then shown to our room. Excellent - lovely and clean - very modern - comfy beds - just lovely! After a siesta we went down to the bar again - great atmosphere - although part of reception. Staff really helpful and not over priced. The next few days were the same - can't fault the hotel at all.. Would definitely go back! 10 out of 10. Can't comment on breakfast as we did not eat there....

We have just returned from a 5 day break staying at this hotel. We were impressed with the hotel, it is clean, modern and we found the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The reception area doubles up as a bar and after our day's sightseeing, we found it an ideal place to relax wiith a drink. Bar prices were reasonable for a hotel of this class.
The hotel's main attraction is it's location. One of the main city centre streets, Friedrichstrasse, is just around the corner. This connects with nearly all of Berlin's sights, the nearest being Checkpoint Charlie, 2-300 yards away.
We used a taxi from Schonefeld airport, paid 35 euros and found it an easy and relaxing way to get to the hotel. On departure date, the receptionist arranged our taxi and had another easy journey.
As our booking was room only, we took breakfast out each and from the numerous places to choose from, we found Back Factory. Overlooking Checkpoint Charlie, it is a modern, self service take away with a seating area on 2 floors if wanting to eat in. Excellent selection and exceptional value.

Winters Hotel is well situated, just off lower Friedrichstrasse, in central Berlin; midway in between Hallesches Tor and Kochstrasse UBahn stations (line U6). It is a clean, smart modern building, with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are very clean, simply appointed, but comfortable, and very quiet. There are a range of cheap restaurants and takeaways in the immediate neighbourhood, also branches of Lidl and Netto supermarkets are just a short walk away. I have stayed there twice now, and would happily do so again. The SBahn station at Anhalter Bahnhof (line S1), is also just a 5 minute walk away.

Room Tip: I have only had rooms which faced the rear courtyard, and which have no view. Both were of equal sta...
