“Nice locality for budget travellers”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Just 2 minutes walk from Berlin Central Bahnoff, this is an ideal place for budget travellers. Rooms are very well maintained and cleaned every day. The staff is hospitable & welcoming. There is a kitchen with all necessary utensils - an ideal place if you want to cook yourself. The location can not be a better one for what you spend (less than euro 35 per person per night). We were slightly hesitant after seeing the location & low tariff, but our experience had been magnificent & would like to stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the opposite side of Bahnoff have better views.

While the lobby of the hotel is modern and trendy, don't be fooled. This place is one skip away from being labeled a hostel (minus the rooming with other random people). Good for travelers in the their teens/early twenties studying abroad and on a big budget. Plus side is that you are close to the train station which is easy to get around. Definitely not walkable to the bars.

Room Tip: The 4-person rooms have 2 bunk beds and are cheaper than the 2-person rooms. You're better off g...

This hotel is a short walk from the main train station. It is a very good starting point for Berlin. The room was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Take note that room price changes based on availability. Price could be pretty low if you book early.

I went to Meininger Berlin on a trip, being told it was a hostel, I didn't expect much at all. Although, it was much more of a hotel. The whole 'hostel' is very student-y which is good if you're a student yourself. At night at the bar in the hotel, it gets quite busy so you socialise with loads of different people around the world. A negative to the bar is that it takes forever to get a drink, more-or-less waiting half an hour for a drink is ridiculous because they ran out of glasses every night.
I wasn't expecting much of the hotel room itself, it was quite small and the TV didn't work, although we were only there to sleep. The bathroom was very modern and clean, which I wasn't expecting.
Breakfast was a bit of a low too, only having ham and cheese rolls, and cereal with sour milk. Not nice!
Being next to the train station was very convenient, they have restaurants, fast food shops and a supermarket and pharmacy type of shop. (I recommend going to Vipiano and Currywurst.) Just outside the hotel is a pizza shop which sell the tastiest pizzas, which are absolutely humongous!
It is in a nice area, 10 minute walk to Brandonburg Gate, 15 minute train ride to Berlin Wall. It is good for different types or architecture, when you look past all the horrible concrete flats!
I definitely recommend going up Fernsehturm Berlin, to look all over the city, it really is amazing and at €12.50, I thought that was really cheap. The Berlin Zoo was pretty good, with loads of animals, it did look a bit run down, although I don't think the horrible weather helped.

We have just returned from a midweek stay, 60 students and 5 staff. We were all very impressed with the friendly staff and the clean and warm rooms were excellent quality, especially for a hostel. The reception and bar area was lively and sociable and ideal for our students and great for our regular meetings. The location is perfect for walking to many of the attractions or for using the transport system. We were expecting some noise during the evenings but found it to be fairly quiet in the bedrooms.

The location is great. It's right in the middle with the tram/bus station and underground station right outside
Friendliest bunch of receptionist to have encountered. They were very helpful and insightful, enabling us to easily arrange our daily tours/trips and get around the city.
The luggage room was very helpful in storing the luggage either until check-in time or check-out time and your arrival/departure.
As a family of four (mother and 3 children) we booked a family room. However, we ended up in a quadruple room with two bunk-beds and four lockers for storage. Which was not all that helpful.
The breakfast buffet was average. Not a major variety but a very reasonable price rate and yummylicious homemade jam.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks last year sharing a double room with my sister.
The hotel looks more like a hostel (most of the guests were quite young and the decoration was pretty informal).
The price of the room was quite surprising as well way cheaper than expected which is awesome, and the staff were very friendly.

What most pleased me about the hotel was its location, right across the Hauptbanhof station! Also if you arrive at the Tegel airport you can get a coach to the station and the other way around.

What bothered me a little about the hotel was the cleaning service, my sister and I felt like our room was not well cleaned, only the sheets and towels were exchanged daily but we could clearly tell the room lacked proper cleaning (I am NOT picky about cleaning). The pillow was also VERY uncomfortable but we managed to deal with it.

The room internet signal was quite low, even though the internet was free it was hard to get good signal. To be fair I barely needed to use the internet and I am sure the hotel lobby had better signal since it was usually packed with people so.

Overall I had a pleasant experience and I would definitely stay there again!
The positive things make up for the drawbacks so if you are looking for a decent hotel at an affordable price rate this hotel is perfect for you :)

Hello!
Thanks for your feedback.
We are sorry about the WIFI connection, it´s busy and slowly just when the hotel is fully booked.
We are going to improve the signal power soon.
If you had a positive experience, take a look in our home page and for your next travel to Europe you can enjoy one of our Hostels.

Kind regards
