“Good value budget accomodation”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Great location in an area full of character, great restaurants and shops. A 5 minute walk from the U-Bahn; this hotel is easy to reach using public transport from the airport. Check-in was efficient and friendly, and reception staff were extremely helpful. A plentiful buffet breakfast is served until 12 noon. The hotel has a small bar that sells a limited range of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks at a reasonable price.
The only negative aspect to the hotel that we found was that it was slightly noisy in the late evening/early hours, but after a heavy days sightseeing it was not too much of a problem.
This hotel is a great base to explore Berlin from.

I have spent some time on various visits to Berlin at Hotel Transit. It's well located and fairly close to a subway station and easy to access.
Check in is easy and simple, the rooms are functional, clean and have large windows. on the downside they come with carpet floors and the walls are pretty thin, so if some drunk crowd comes back late at night, you hear them from far up the floor until they finally make it to their rooms.

Breakfast is nothing special, but definitely okay go get your day startet.

From other reviews I had expected large rooms however the single room I had was very small. It fited a bed and then the bathroom door could just open and no room on the other side at all. Bathroom basic and the bed not very comfortable. I only stayed there overnight. The biggest issue was parking. When booking, the hotel cheerfully stated that parking in the area is free. Indeed it is and eveybody knows it, so although free there actualy was no parking space to be found nearby.
Braekfast is ok but do not expect any cooked items. All in all student dorm is an apt description of this place

We had our first stay at hotel transit. And trust me one who loves page out of history would love this place. Nice big rooms with high roofs, great breakfast. Big windows. The linen is clean n toilets are good but bit smalll compared to the rooms. The shut the main enterance in. The night so u have to buzz the bell and take the door enterance./ slips. To our amaze we had flight early morning so we had to leave by 4 . And we were offered decent breakfast with hot coffee. Recommended a gud place to stay. Its very close to mehringdamn well connected with bus n tube.

I stayed here with my daughter for five nights recently and was really impressed. It was easy to get to, being close to the station. When we first looked at our rooms I thought that they reminded me of student halls and were too basic. However by the end of our stay I felt that they were ideal for what we wanted - they were clean and comfortable and did the job. Breakfasts were good and we appreciated the chance to have a lie in without missing breakfast. The eating/bar/lounge area was airy and worked well.

The surrounding area was great. We ate a lot on Bergmannstrasse - our favourites were Knofel and the cafe by the market hall further down. We also enjoyed the Turkish market alongside the canal.

I spent three night with other two persons. We occupied a three-bed-room. It was very confortable, kept clean and the crew is very kind. The reception is open 24h. It is situated in the middle of Kreuzberg, next to Mehringdamm's underground stop. Near the hotel there is a lot of currywurst, such as the famous Curry 36, and restaurants and live free concerts. A beautiful place!

We take our students twice a year to Berlin and stay at Hotel Transit, we have tried others and this beats the rest hands down.

It is, what you see is what you get! High to the ceilings and white walls with a splash of blue or red curtains depending on the rooms. Rooms vary in size according to the number of beds.

They have a reception/dining area which is ideal for people to meet up after a long evening out in Berlin. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the bar/reception is open 24 hours. One is allowed to eat at the dinning area and bring ones own beverages. They close the doors to the reception when the party gets off the ground with young people screaming (they tend to when they are intoxicated with alcohol!) and loud music. But from time to time, you will experience some lost soul running around in the hallways banging on doors, trying to find his/her room.

There is wifi in the reception, however not in the rooms. One can still buy hours using a telecom service which is not too expensive.

Be aware that it is full of young people. They are loud and I would advice in investing in soft ear plugs to block out the noise factor.

Smoking is FINALLY not allowed inside the premises. Which is fantastic.

The elevator tends to break down often. Always when we arrive, so be aware of that when packing!

Currywurst 36 - Mustafas dönor kebab - Arman - Vanille & Marille - Pagode - Cafe do Brasil - second hand shops and much, much more around this fantastic hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms are hot during the summer. Bring a small portable fan and you will be happy that you read...
