MEININGER Hotel Berlin Mitte Humboldthaus
Ranked #146 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed 27 November 2013 via mobile

Strategic location 100 meters from the entrance to the main train station of Berlin. Very clean, good breakfast, good shower, high quality, helpful front desk. Small basic room, but OK for a budget hotel. Good price. A lot more then we expected.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

Thank you very much for your feedback!
100m from the main train station sounds like our MEININGER Hotel Central Station, which is indeed just a puddle jump away.
MEININGER Hotel Berlin Mitte has also a great location though, right in the heart of Berlin with walking distance to many sights and a little less busy.
Why not check out our other hotels around Europe, like Amsterdam or London?

I paid $58usd which is a great value. I paid for a double room but they gave me the duplex room which could sleep 3 people (I didn't even ask) which was great. The room was clean, has everything you need, looks like new Ikea-like furniture, plenty of towels, shower was hot, a remote to control heat/air, Samsung lcd tv had a few channels in english (CNN, music videos). The room is a bit small and narrow but what do you expect for this price. The subway is literally in front of the hotel, also tram and bus. The location was great, my favorite places to eat there is a place next to Espresso Ambulanz (Wifi password is berlinberlin) it has a breakfast buffet, its a bit pricey around 9-10eur a person (extra for drink so bring your own) all you can eat but really good food such as different cheeses, eggs, sausage, fruit, you can take a look at the selection before buying, there is a very nicely decorated Indian restaurant great food and big quantity so you can easily share the dish I had mango soup and mango chicken dish, many happy hour specials 4.50 or 3.90 euro a drink, there is a Kebab place great food and prices 3.50eur for chicken kebab sandwich, the hotel has a kitchen and washer/dryer you can use, the kitchen opens at 7:30am so if you are leaving early then take your stuff out the night before, a cheaper value area to eat & drink is near Rosenthaler Platz subway which is a 15-20min. walk which I highly suggest-(if you need wifi a hotel called Circus username & password is circus or circuscircus, directions from the airport, choose AB ticket route which is 2.60eur: Airport Bus – Bus TXL - Direction is S+U Bahn Alexanderplatz via Hauptbahnhof

• Get off at S+U Bahn Brandenburger Tor (Berlin)

• Change to train S1 (SBahn)- Direction S Frohnau (Berlin) to Oranienburger Straße (only 2 stops)

You can also use S2 (Direction Bernau) or S25 (Direction Henningsdorf) instead of S1 from S-Bahn station Brandenburger Tor.
Whichever comes first. Enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: 5th floor has duplex rooms

This is a great place, the location in Mitte is perfect. Around 50€ per night with breakfast is very good value for money. The superior rooms are on the 5th floor. Your bedroom will be a duplex, large desk and sofa downstairs, beds upstairs with a homely feeling. I really appreciated the relax and friendly atmosphere. It can be a busy place with school trips, but it was no bother at all. I highly recommend it.

Booked this hotel for a weekend with friends in Berlin. There are a few Meininger hotels in Berlin and, unfortunately, all of my friends were booked into the one next to the (very impressive) train station. This turned into an advantage as my hotel was ideally placed in the city for what I wanted. It's relatively close to all the main attractions (Brandenburg Gate, 15 min walk, Berlin TV tower, 10 min walk, Jewish synagogue, 1 min walk). It's also on a road with lots of bars and restaurants but it's also very quiet. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff are pleasant. I booked a single room and got a double and my room was on a split level, with the bed being on a mezzanine floor. This was lovely although the steps to get up to bed were very steep (especially difficult when you've sampled German beer!). The only problem I had was checking out. I booked through Expedia and paid in full when I booked but the hotel had obviously not received the payment. Even though I had my payment confirmation, the receptionist wouldn't let me go at first. Only a phone call to the manager sorted it out. All in all, a pleasant, decently priced, perfectly located hotel to stay and see the truly excellent city of Berlin.

The location is indeed an excellent starting point to explore the city.
We are sorry for the hassle caused when checking out, we had only recently started to receive bookings via Expedia so the procedure was pretty new to us.
It would be great to welcome you again on your next trip to Berlin!

Wifi is free of charge in the whole hotel and you need one password per device.
Of course you can get as many of them as you need, just ask at the reception, we are here 24h a day.
Why not check out MEININGER in Vienna or Brussels next time?

Got to the hotel from the airport in about 40min and from the first moment the experience was great. Friendly staff at the front desk who checked us in within minutes, gave us directions and told us where to go for a supermarket. Also drinks, beers and snacks are available at the front desk.

The central location puts you within a 20-30min walk to anywhere in the city and the S-bahn station steps from the hotel's door puts you anywhere in berlin within minutes.

The hotel is very clean and new, the room was small but seemed to have been refurbished recently. The furniture seemed brand new and the bathroom was very modern and clean. For its price this is an excellent hotel.

The guest kitchen was very handy to cook a meal or have breakfast and was barely being used during our stay (we had it all to ourselves). It is equipped with the essentials to cook just about any meal. A supermarket is about 15min walking from the hotel. Next door to the hotel is a small restaurant that serves a good, german, well priced meal for those who don't want to cook.

Only downside I could say is the "adult nighttime activities" along oranienburger strasse further down from the hotel, but this was not at all an issue for us and the area seemed very safe regardless.

All things considered this is a great place for a comfortable, budget weekend trip to berlin....

We were 7 guys, but we booked a room with 8 beds so we could have the room to ourselves. It was great - we were only staying the one night, so just needed a base to dump our bags for the day, come back to change and rest before going out, and somewhere for a few hours sleep.

This was great - comfy bed - although you would hardly notice being drunk - but a convenient charging socket by each bed. Very clean and modern rooms, toilet and bathroom within the room - toilet separate to shower - which is handy when you are a group of guys. Bascially - it's like a nice hotel room but with many bunkbeds instead of one. We were on the 4th floor.

Location is great - 10 mins walk to alexanderplatz, but there are good bars, places to eat in the area.

Check in staff helpful - would have been good if we could have checked in a few hours earlier than we did though - but we arrived early - just left our bags in lugagge room.

I am reviewing as excellent not comparing to hotels but to other hostels I have stayed in. - Hence the excellent rating.
