It is a long drive from the ferry to the TRYP hotel. As we were running late the driver contacted the hotel and they put dinner on for 2000hrs instead of 1900hrs.This allowed us time to freshen up having been on the coach for 12 hours. The hotel is being revamped and painted and the reception area looked a little bleak but the staff were very friendly. We were on the 4th floor. Whilst I as an ex smoker could smell nicotine my wife, who has never smoked could not. The room we were in was clean Towels were changed daily and the area cleaned. The central heating was on 24 hours a day. The restaurant had a good selection of hot and cold dishes for both breakfast and the evening meal. Breakfast was a puzzle to me. There was a German and Italian coach in the hotel. I always thought the continentals ate the croissant, cheeses and cold meats but my, do they like bacon,egg, sausage and beans. There is no kettle in the bedrooms so one cannot make a drink unless you take a kettle with you. Tea, coffe, etc is available from Netto 60 yards away. I did find the bottle of water left in the room expensive at E2.30 as it is only E1.09 in netto. We went on a tour of Berlin and visited the wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the site of Hitlers Bunker, the Brandenburg Gate etc. One can have their picture taken with American Soldiers but, they are not American they are Germans in American uniforms and they charge 2 Euros. We visited the Christmas Markets in Potsdam and Charlottenburg Castle. Potsdam has numerous stalls some selling curryworst a curry sausage. There is a curryworst museum in Berlin. Charlottenburg market is more of an artisan and crafts market you will not see anywhere else and really is a must. There is the Gluwein or mulled which can be fortified with Vodka, Brandy and is very warming. The Hotel is situated in a housing area and is surrounded by flats I do not feel we van be too critical as we must remember this was a communist country.

Room Tip: 4th floor is a smoking floor. Rooms to the rear quieter

My husband and I needed a last minute hotel for just 1 night. Chose this bc we had business nearby. It was inexpensive (?62 incl bkfst), so I didn't have huge expectations. Rsvns were easy, staff very friendly and the room was good size, clean, new bathroom and excellent bedding. Parking is ample and free. The bkfst buffet was fantastic. When we checked out, we only had to pay ?50. They gave us a special rate for bkfst without us asking for it! Maybe bc we had a small issue with the TV, which was immediately resolved? Dont know. In which other capital can you get a decent room at that rate?
Extra bonus: we had some extra time next morning and found out we were in walking distance from the "Stasi museum". It is a bleak, bland neighborhood, but the museum was interesting.

Stayed here before on a coach trip, again this time on another coach trip so didn't book it ourselves! The hotel has changed name but nothing else had changed at all! The hotel is on a long residential road which has a Lidl, and a couple of Nettos (which were handy for wine and nibbles!) The road was very busy so we couldn't open a window. The food was good and the restaurant was pleasant and clean. Beware of the slippery showertray however - had to tread carefully in there - still has a curtain which seems outdated nowadays. Reception staff were not as helpful this time - several local children were running riot up and down the stairs and monopolising the lifts and a couple of us couldn't get on them so mentioned this to reception and was told there was nothing they could do!! Security may be an issue here then!!!
Only frustration this trip was no-one mentioned the Festival of Light was on while we were there - so we missed seeing it - we would have had to get a taxi or use the Metro but could have done it. My advice would be to check what's on before you go and not rely on information in hotels!

Room Tip: A room at the back may be quieter but haven't stayed in one so can't guarantee this - best t...

Perfect that you liked our food and that the restaurant was pleasant and clean. We do apologize, that the reception can’t help you with the problem with the children, which was occupant the elevators. You are right, that the reception don’t mention the Festival of Lights is very annoying. We do apologize for this. Hopefully we can welcome you as a guest on your next trip to Berlin.

Dear Photojoerelihan,
Thank you for your rating at TripAdvisor. We apologize, that your heater was not working in your room. Normally there is no problem to change the room, when the technician is not able to repair the heater in one day. We can understand you very well and this is really not normal. We are sorry, that you had to call to your tour operator to sell the problem. We will forward your feedback to the management, to hope, that this never will happen again. We hope that you will give us another change to show you that we can improve our service. Best regards your Tryp by Wyndham Berlin City East Team

Ok, it's a bit out of the way in the former East Berlin but its a huge sprawling city so wherever you stay, it will still take some effort to get from one point to another. Found the staff pleasant & helpful. We missed out on the hot breakfast as there were around 5 coach parties in & we decided to have a lie in. By the time we went in all hot food had gone, however, cereal etc were available & it was good. Only big disappointment was when we got back to hotel after a night out we couldn't get a coffee (no facilities in room). The guy on reception pointed us in the direction of a Turkish Kebab shop about 10 mins walk away where we managed to get one! Comfy beds & clean room, thankfully no fleas!!

Dear FEENCHAP,
Thank you for your feedback about your stay in our hotel at TripAdvisor. You are totally right, that when you want to go from one point to another in Berlin it will take easily 1 hour. In front of the hotel there is directly the bus station and when you walk a few minutes you also reach the tram station. In about 30 minutes you are at the city from Berlin. We are happy to read, that you found our colleagues pleasant and helpful. Great, that you got the information, that at the Turkish Kebab shop you will get your coffee also in the night. Perfect, that you felt comfortable in your room and that you found you bed comfortable. When you visit Berlin next time we would we delighted to welcome you again.
