Alex Hotel
Ranked #324 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed February 16, 2008

After a booking misunderstanding in my previous hotel, I de-camped to Alex Hotel and was pleasantly surprised! I was informed that the establishment has been operating as a hotel for just over a year. Nonetheless, management and staff seem to be getting a great deal right: this is a very pleasant, friendly hotel, situated in the looming shadow of Alexanderplatz Tower, which is a short ten minute walk away. Alternatively, hop on the tram outside.

If you are expecting a traditional German hotel or the luxury of a Marriott, you will probably be disappointed. However, the Alex Hotel offers the traveller a warm, modern ambience, simple, albeit spotlessly clean rooms, and a hearty breakfast on which to explore beautiful Berlin or to attack a day full of meetings. In short, the place is ideal for tourists and business folk alike.

This hotel is in East Berlin on Greifswalder Strasse, a ten minute walk from Alexanderplatz (there is also a tram with a stop right outside the hotel). There is not much going on in the direct vicnity of this hotel, except for housing blocks, graffiti, and a couple of heavy metal clubs... but it's walking distance to the hipper, gentrified areas of Prenzlauer Berg with plenty of restaurants and bars. The hotel itself is new, clean, and modern. Our room was small, minimal, but comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly, and the buffet breakfast was extensive. At the time of our stay, although wifi was advertised as being available throughout the hotel it only worked in the lobby area, which was not a problem for us since the staff explained that they were in the process of fixing the problem. I would not recommend this hotel to travelers who prefer location and luxury, but to couples or groups in their twenties or thirties who are on a budget and enjoy walking. Overall, we were satisfied with our experience at Alex Hotel.

From the outside it looks like a cafe. This is in fact the breakfast room. If you want a hotel that is clean, modern, tastefully decorated, value for money, reasonable location, pretty good breakfast, with helpful though slightly off-beat / unconventional staff, then this is for you. If however you want a more traditional type of hotel in terms of staff / reception, it isnt.
I had a couple of friends join me in the breakfast room and i was told it was no problem for them to help themselves to coffee, which was much appreciated.
