“Inexpensive hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night, as we wanted a hotel in that area and it offered a great price and seemed quiet enough, compared to the main road. The hotel entrance is in a side road of frankfurter allee and offers rooms facing that small street or the backside. It was quiet for a good night sleep. Unfortunately the air condition was not really making an impact to that hot summer night. Staff was friendly and the room size ok. We would definitely return.
We did not use breakfast for 10 EUR each. If needed you have bakeries and other shops in the neighborhood.

See previous review. I made an error - the hotel is in the old EAST Germany area not the WEST. I was I bit uncomfortable about the area getting off the metro by night and walking several blocks to hotel it but was unfounded. It just is in a business area that closes early so daylight gave it a better view.

We travel to Berlin quite regularly but hadn’t used this hotel before. I was slightly perturbed when we turned up and had to pay a city tax. I’m sure it was in the small print, but every other hotel we’ve stayed at in Berlin has included this upfront. Still it was less than 10 euros so I didn’t complain.

The room was slightly shabby, things were a bit worn and chipped . However it was a decent size, and was clean. Actually the cleaners were very quiet and always cleaned our room although we left quite late each day. Had to ask a couple of times for another pillow (they are very thin) but got there in the end.

Sadly there was a sour note. We left our bags on the last day and when we returned to collect them (slightly later than anticipated) a HUGE coach party had just arrived. My boyfriend could actually see our bags in the office. He politely explained that we had a plane to catch and just wanted to grab them, but the woman snapped that he’d have to wait until she had dealt with everyone else. This showed a supreme lack of common sense. I’m sure nobody would have minded waiting 20 seconds while she let us grab our bags, given that there were so many of them. We left the hotel feeling really annoyed and cross.

I wouldn’t warn against staying here (although the presence of large parties always worries me slightly). If you are looking for great customer service and a bit of luxury this is not the right place. However if you want a clean bed for the night in Friedrichshain it’s fine.

This was an unexpected trip to Berlin . . .long storey but we had started out in Germany,visited Paris by train then returned to Germany. We went into a travel agent tofor ideas for the weekend. By default picked up this tour a gentleman sitting next to us was trying to cancel his tour because his wife was ill. Voila, we made a private deal with him for a fraction of the cost (he was basically going to lose 80% of his money). The travel agent changed hotel name to us and we were off. We got train tickets from Germany, the hotel, Hop-On-Hop Off tickets, Metro tickets for 3 days, and Blue Man show tickets. My husband is a big history buff so he was in heaven in Berlin. The hotel is in the old West Germany quarter. 2 Blocks to Metro. Surrounding area has many communist style apartment buidings. Hotel is fairly new, has the feel of business hotel, more American style rooms than typical in rest of Europe. It's clean, roomy bath. Bed comfortable. We were out all day so just slept there. Big breakfast buffet included. There is a large atrium surrounding the hotel and several office type buildings that has 2-3 restuarants. The German restaurant didn't have any one that spoke English to interpret menu but food good. Overall a good trip for us, despite a lot of time on trains.

Hotel room was big and clean, facing rather quiet street. Huge bed, at least for my european standards. Pillows were of variable quality, from soft and thin to almost ok. Two would do, ask for another. Otherwise nothing to complain. Friendly staff, great location between Samariterstrasse ubahn (300m) and ring sbahn (600m). Area close to hotel was great too, near boxhagener platz and great restaurants there. For rainy and lazy days there are a few shops and restaurants in a atrium - style small shopping centre on location. A minimarkt run by a friendly man on other side of street from reception is open to midnight every day. Copy shop on other side of FriedrichstraBe from hotel great and cheap for printing tickets and so on. Wifi cost 20e for 5 days, pretty stable 1,2-1,6 mbit/s. Probably optimal for small-scale business travel, but good for a enjoyable weekend in Friedrichshain too.

Room Tip: Towards street was good, window was openable, view was nice, old berlin buildings.

For us it's the perfect place, round the corner from our son's house. Quiet neighbourhood, spacious rooms, good bathroom. Breakfast bufet sufficient for start to a day's sightseeing. Pillows are way too thin and floppy! No mini bar, hotel bar not open very long. Vending machines in corridor expensive. You're much better off buying softdrinks & snacks from small shops across the road.
Short walk to U-Bahn which gets you to Alexanderplatz and onwards to most attractions quickly.
