“European TD tour”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Hotel in good location 5 min walk to centre of west Berlin, laundromat nearby if needed, they have signs I the lobby for it, service was good, bed soft but squeaky, metro lines are nearby as well to head to old east Berlin, a lot of road noise, get room on the non road side of the hotel is possible. Shower was good, shower had door rather than a curtin which was a nice change,breakfast was average, no air con in rooms, clean and neat all things considered, would stay again, but will need a fan in the summer

Room Tip: Get a room on the high floors on the non road side to get away from the road noise

as said in title, this is one of the cheapest hotels within 5 mins from KuDamm, Zoo, KaDeWe etc. the rooms are really basic and probbably a bit tired, staff is not amazingly friendly, but you pay less then in any other hotel around 1km ans still have clean room and wondefull breakfast (I was really surprised what they offer for these rates).

The Hotel Arrival has some great murals and props lying around, but the novelty of this wears off when it's obvious the rooms aren't anything special. Free wifi in the rooms is pretty nice, however. Smoked salmon on the breakfast buffet is also a nice touch.

This hotel is old and has some really queer decor going on inside!! But don't let it put you off , the rooms are just fine, maybe just a bit worn. It's clean, tidy, things work, and the breakfast spread is a great way to begin your day in Berlin! Location maybe not the best, but metro is efficient and reliable.

I called the hotel to make a reservation and they didn't require credit card info which made me nervous. I reconfirmed the reservation before we left and they said we were fine but it seemed a little weird esp. since their English wasn't very good. It was just one nite and it was fine but seemed to be more of a hostel in much of a hotel. And there must have been some big groups cuz you couldn't even deal with the crowd at breakfast. The room itself was very clean, shower was decent altho small and hard to maneuver in. I was worried about being in the first room on the first floor but it wasn't noisy at all. Maybe I was just a moron but couldn't make a phone call from our room and the semi morose receptionist wasn't much help. The location was good for that part of town there and it was just a 10 min walk to the Zoo station for the bus to the airport.

hotel close distance to metro station and within walking distance to the centre. receptionist friendly enough but did not know much english. very helpful, especialy when asked her to change the room as it was very noisy, next to the lift and to the street. no sound proofing at all you can hear noise from everywhere. very strange choice of paintings on the wall which did not match with the overall decor (same in the dining room!). very nice breakfast though.
