“Stylish hotel, but no ventilation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Nice design with allusions on 70's. Friendly reception, clean rooms. I was upgraded to a better room with no additional charge. Bathroom is spacious and very conveniently planned. Downside is that there is no ventilation in room, which makes impossible to stay in this hotel in summer. Even I opened all 4 big windows no air came from outside.
You can get to hotel on foot either from Halensee S-Bahn station or from U-Bahn Adenauerplatz.
Ku'damm is perfect for shopping, eating, enjoying life as it was here in golden 20s of XX century.

We get a room in front, big size, nice vieuw, minimalistic design and minimalistic services too.
This hotel is not prepared for the summer of Berlin, the hit in the front rooms is terrible, and you cannot open de windows because the noise of the street (even in the 4 floor!). We wanted a ventilator but we receive something for the warm air, we asked for water to the room, and there is no room service. The first night was impossible to sleep. After long discussion with the reception, finally we get another room with air conditioning.
The description of the hotel is 3 star superior, but without according services. No frigo bar, no room service, not all the rooms has air conditioning, the security in bathrooms is not the best, ( no handles in the bath or panic alarm), no shampoo only soap. The standart category is what it is, and the following category the only upgrade is: air conditioning!

Room Tip: Not in front! ( they put the air conditioning for the rooms in the back... bad planning!

Dear Silandrina,

Thank you for your review of the Ku’ Damm 101 Design-Hotel Berlin.

The last couple of the days were unusually hot in Berlin but we hope that you enjoyed the city despite the heat wave.

We are sorry, that you couldn´t sleep on your first night. You did book a Standard Class Room, which does not have air-conditioning fitted. It says on our website as well as all other booking websites, that only our 64 Upper Class Rooms have air-conditioning.

As for the rooms without AC, we close the lightproof blinds to keep them as cool as possible during the day. For a more immediate cooling effect, we also provide free (non-heating) fans to our guests.

The Ku’ Damm 101 Hotel does have a minimalistic design concept and a young, unpretentious team but that does not make us comparable to a hostel. The hotel offers all the amenities, which make your stay relaxed and enjoyable. 3 spacious room types, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, Lobby Bar with room service from 6am – 11pm, vending machines for snacks and drinks, a portable mini-fridge on request, an innovative breakfast buffet on the 7th floor with views of the city, an all-natural organic cosmetic series, concierge services, bathrooms with underfloor heating, in-room guests safe, satellite-TV with international channels etc…

We are happy that we were able to upgrade you for the remaining nights.

Best Regards

Your Ku’ Damm 101 Team

we stayed here for a weekend. loverly hotel, modern and very clean. The breakfast is amazing, very fresh and of the topfloor, so you have a lovely view of the city. It is located at 15 minutes from the subway, which is down the Kurfustendamm so there is enough to see when you walk around. The employees are very friendly and the room itself is very clean and light (we had a room at the streetside). All in all a very good hotel for a business or city trip!

The 101 is at Kurfürstendamm and near the subway station Adenauerplatz. There are al lot of restaurants in the area. In 30 minutes you are at Potsdam Platz and in about 15 minutes (no traffic) you are at the airport (Tegel).
The rooms are very nice and clean. Try to get a room at the inner courtyard. They are really quiet. Breakfast is at 7th floor and very good. 5 different kind of juice and a lot of other tasty food.The staff is really nice, friendly and very helpful. The 101 is our hotel for berlin trips in the future.

I read a lot of reviews for this hotel before I booked it. A German friend recommended it and it seemed to have the best pricing in that area. When I got there, the clerk said I needed to upgrade, if I wanted air-conditioning in my room, so I did. I included breakfast for each day as well.

The rooms are very contemporary and I found it needed more area rugs, but the one by the bed, I moved it closer to my bed, so my feet hit the rug instead of the bare concrete floors. I asked the maid service to leave extra towels for the bathroom floors to walk on. I really enjoyed the bathroom space. The room was very spacious! The front desk clerks were informational when it came to directions and suggestions. Every night, I asked for a new restaurant to visit. There is a great Turkish restaurant just around the corner named Tugra that was a suggestion.

The KaDaWe is the major shopping mall in the area. I walked to this area and enjoyed a summer solstice parade with lots of Western music. The shopping is great!

Every day, I had a new destination to visit and would ask the front desk directions, and the best means of transportation to use. I took the bus to the museums; they are all located in the same area, so that was easy. Night life demanded a taxi ride to and from.

The entire staff and breakfast was great. Breakfast had many hot and cold items in their selection. I highly recommend this hotel based on pricing, accommodations, and service!

Room Tip: Ask for air-conditioning if you will need it for a comfortable sleep. Ask room service for extra to...

Ku´Damm 101 calls themself a design hotel - as very often seen this means that rooms are quite simple furnished and service limited. But if You are looking for a relaxed hotel with a central location in a nice neighbourhood this is a good option. But dont expect any luxery - You get what You pay for - a comfortable bed!
Rooms are different and make sure that You get a room with ac. Some are without, and during summertime this means that it becomes too warm to get any sleep - only possibility is to leave the door to the joint balcony open.
Breakfast is normally not included - You will have to pay extra. It can be recommended as it is fine and ample and served in a bright restaurant on top of the building.
