Very simple and very cheap! Booked this hotel in the middle of summer on 12 hours notice for less than $100 USD for 4 people and a dog. Hostel like rooms with bunk beds and no frills but for the price it was fine. Stasi museum right next door too!

A good experience. Our 4th floor room was newly refurbished. This hotel is good positioned in a quiet environment within easy reach of the bus and tram station. Lots of parking is available. The staff were friendly and communicated excellent in English..

Stayed at this hotel with my family because it has 4-bedded rooms. Our room was on the 8th floor which was only accessible by stairs from the 7th floor, which was kind of inconvenient. The internet, which was not free of course, was really slow no matter where you use it from, your own computer or the hotel's computer. Rooms were very clean and staff was helpful, though. There is were nice Chinese and German restaurants within walking distance, and a small shopping mall for things like breakfasts or groceries.

Hotel was mostly occupied by school groups or groups of young travelers, so do expect noise and a little bit of chaos especially when they have just arrived in the lobby. The walls are not sound proof, either.

Like most of the other reviews say, the hotel's location is pretty far from the city center (Alexanderplatz tram stop), but there is a direct tram from the shopping mall which takes around 20 minutes.

Room Tip: Don't get rooms on the 8th floor.

Hotel Kolumbus in Berlin... what to say... It was a weird experience. I spent 2 nights here and I must say the room was nice and clean, which is what I care the most.
It might have been a case, but the hotel was full of young teenagers. The atmosphear is kind of funky and freaky. Modern art in display and house music in the reception at night. It looks a serious place from the outside and then inside is plain weird, not bad, but different from all I expected and what I have seen before. The location is not super, as it takes about 25 minutes to get to the centre, but the tram is direct, so not a big deal.

Hotel is quite a way out of town and located in a residential district. Good German restaurant within a few minutes walk and laundries, both self service and drop and pick up are only 10 mins walk away. Regular trams are only 5 mins away along with a ice local shopping centre. Hotel caters for large groups and was crawling with school groups. But all seemed to be handled well with minimal fuss and delays.

Room Tip: Average sized rooms, don't get one by the stairwell as this is very noisy.

The location of the hotel is about 20-30 min with the tram from Alexanderplatz and it takes 5 min from tram stop. There were a few large groups of school kids staying here and they were very noises. The hotel is a former dorm, so that's what the rooms look like. The view from my room was of a disused house littered with rubbish. Good audibility in the rooms. Given the price, the hotel is on an acceptable level.
