My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Pension Bregenz in August for 6 nights. We had a pleasant experience overall. One of the best things about our stay was our host, Christian. Upon arrival he helped us take our suitcases to our room. He was very thorough in explaining different bus/s-bahn/u-bahn routes and ticket options to us, and had transit tickets behind the desk so we could buy them right there instead of having to get them at the metro station. He took us into our room and showed us everything, and gave us a mini-guidebook on the Charlottenburg area. He was always there during breakfast with a hello and a smile. The Pension is run by Christian and his wife, but she was more behind the scenes. I only saw her in passing at breakfast time, and she always smiled.
The Pension itself is located in an old building a few blocks off of the Ku'damm in a quiet residential area. When you arrive, there is an intercom outside and he will buzz you up. There is usually nobody at the front desk except at breakfast time, so you get a key to the building and a key to your room. The Pension is on the fourth floor of the building. There are stairs as well as an elevator. It's one of those old elevators that is quite small (there was just enough room for the two of us and two suitcases) and has the doors that you have to open and close yourself. The room we booked, a double room, consisted of a fair sized room with a big, comfortable bed, a TV, a mini-fridge, a couple of chairs, a small entrance way and the bathroom. Our room looked out onto the courtyard. It was quite hot when we were there in August, and there was a fan in the room. It was quiet in the Pension and I always felt safe there.
Breakfast is served in the main reception area each morning from 7am-9:30am and had a selection of meats, cheeses, bread, apple slices, yogurt, tea, coffee and juice. There are also quite a few restaurants in the immediate area.
The Pension is apparently a T-Mobile hotspot, but we couldn't connect to it from our room or the hallway. There is a computer terminal in the hallway with internet access for 2 EUR an hour. The internet was quite slow, but if you're in Berlin, you shouldn't be spending much time on the computer anyways!
Most of the places we went to definitely required one transit transfer, and most of them even required two. We would either take the bus from Olivaerplatz to the Zoo s-bahn station, or we would walk to the Adenauerplatz u-bahn station and go from there.
Overall, the room was comfortable, the shower was good, the hosts were absolutely excellent, and the location is safe. We paid 80 EUR a night including breakfast and tax.
