“Does the basics, as expected.”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

The NH Berlin City West Hotel was as expected for a cheap bed and breakfast. The phone didn't work in one room and safe was locked in the other and there were no tea making facilities in the rooms but the beds were comfy, the food was nice and the staff were kind and very friendly. The hotel is conveniently situated between 2 U-bahn stations so you can easily get around the city.

If you want somewhere cheap and cheerful to put your head down before getting out and about then this hotel does what it says on the tin.

The NH Hotel City West is close to 2 subway lines and not too far from the S-Bahn. The location is on Bundesallee and not really in one of the tourist areas. But if you like to experience 'normal' Berlin and don't mind going on the subway to see Berlins' tourist sites, then the NH City West is extremely good value. Round the corner is a street which as a number of supermarkets and bakeries. 15 Minutes walk from the hotel is Prager Platz with stores and cafes and a bit from there Victoria Louise Platz which is very nice and also has a subway station. You can even walk within about 30 minutes to Kudamm. The rooms are decent; nothing spectacular but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is overpriced at Euro 18. In any case I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed in a suite, which was massive for one person and had a large balcony, but the tv was rather small for such a large room and international channels were limited.
Broadband is free, but slow and breakfast is now €18 so don't bother and go out to one of the local cafes instead

We 'won' this hotel using Priceline for $70 per night total and were disappointed to see that we paid basically the same cost as advertised on their website, Oh well, that is the risk of using those services. We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel and frequently had problems with the toilet in our room running or the flush lever breaking which we fixed ourselves but nonetheless was something that should not have happened at a "4" star hotel.

It is a one minute walk to the U-Bahn station which was very convenient however because of where we were going we frequently had to switch to the S bahn at Yorkestrasse which was inconvenient. We love riding the public transportation in Berlin but this hotel is just a bit further out than we like to be. When you walk around all day and want to take a hotel break for an hour, you will (in most cases) have to switch trains twice to get back and usually it took us 20-25 minutes to get back depending on where we were in Berlin.

The elevators at this hotel are originally from the 1960s and refurbished(?) a few years ago, but they seem to have a mind of their own. We frequently had to wait in the lobby for 2-4 minutes for the elevator to come. This may have been because of the housekeeping crews taking over the elevators but it was enough of a hassle that I felt it necessary to include in this review.

The free 'wifi' the hotel offers is capped at just over 100 Kbps, which is extremely slow. Most home internet connections are 40-100+ times faster than this. Remember dial-up internet? It is twice as fast as that.

While the neighborhood was a bit boring, if you leave the hotel and turn left (away from the U-Bahn) and then turn right at the first light there is a small grocery store a few blocks down which was very useful and located in a beautiful residential area. We enjoyed strolling through that residential area at night and seeing how Berliners lived, very calm and peaceful area.

Overall we were satisfied with the hotel, large room, comfortable beds,
but we will not be staying there again nor recommending it to others because of the pitifully slow internet (important for us) and distance from the main sights of Berlin. I also suspect this hotel is closer to a three star hotel than a four.

The hotel is a bit far from restaurants and shopping center, however thank god U-Bahn is just a few steps from the hotel entrance. It takes around 15 mins to Ku'Damm and Messe Berlin.

I stayed with my colleague at TWN room and found out the beds are arranged very closed to each other (I think around 20cm gap between those beds). Clean room with extra space for cloth hanging, free WiFi at the room and public area.

There are a couple of things I hate when staying at hotels:

1. Overpriced food at the restaurant. In this case breakfast 14 euros. While I am sure that you would have great variation in foods, there is a biodynamic bakery just 5 minuttes away, that does serve breakfast for 5 euros

2. When information found on the homepage are not accurate. There is NO free internet here, and the price for parking is 20% higher than listet.

Both of these things cost one point in my evaluation. The room in the hotel are quite large compared to other Berlin hotels. Its very close to two subway stations, which my pregnant girlfriend loved, The neighborhood is quite boring, and you need to take the subway to see anything. There are a few restaurants and bars close by, but none of them seemed very exiting.

I've stayed in this hotel several times, but this was the first time since they renovated last autumn. I booked my stay on the night of arrival and I still got a deluxe room for just 69€ a night, without breakfast. Rooms are nicely decorated and even though the room faced the noisy Bundesallee, I could barely hear the traffic. I have never tried the breakfast here, as I tend to go to bed very late when I'm in Berlin. The neighbourhood is a bit boring, but you have hidden gems, like the Badenscher Hof jazzclub not far away. Since the U7 and U9 tube lines cross just a block away, getting around Berlin from here is easy. And to be honest, taxis in Berlin are cheap.
