“best place to start your own Berlin exploration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

If you're first time to Berlin - Hauptbahnhof area is just perfect place to stay. All main rail, subway and bus routes come here. Bus touristic has stop here as well. Bundestag - just 5 minutes walk.
Hauptbahnhof has some shops and nice cafes with extended working hours.

So the best advantage of this hotel is location. InterCityHotel provide you with a valuable bonus - public transport ticket valid through all your stay (including way back to airport). Nice quite rooms. Pleasant bar in lobby just to take a break after long day full of excitement.
Not sure about breakfast - we didn't have it included and had breakfast in Hauptbahnhof (try Gosch Sylt!).

There is another hotel nearby (cheaper one), but it's full of teenagers.

The only disadvantage of this hotel is VERY slow internet connection in rooms.

Location is right next to the main train station. This whole area is new and modern so don't be fooled into thinking that's because it's next to a train station it's a dirty area. It's not. In fact it was really clean! And convenient.
Hotel buffet breakfast is quite large, although nothing spectacular and nothing particularly German either.
Only thing is is that u can't check in before 2pm. We arrived at 11am because if a very early morning flight and we were so tired but were told to come back at 2. I felt they could have been a little flexible at least.
Otherwise everything else was fine.

Stayed 3 days in Berlin at this hotel & it was great! Located near the train station where you
can catch the tour buses & ones to the airport. Great buffet breakfast, staff & room. They actually have smoking rooms, too! Very nice & new. Could use better pillows & English tv stations. Free transportation tickets that helped when leaving at 4am!

Modern, Clean and Good Location. This hotel is just near the Parlament, the Brandenburg Gate and the Tiergarden, all of those is walking distance! Also, the main train station is like 100 meters from the hotel, so it's very well located. People are nice and the hotel is clean, good, and quite. It's a huge hotel, but well taken care of. It's not a cozy or romantic getaway, it's straightforward!

Room Tip: I believe any room is good, cause it's not a really busy area.

Very well situated for visiting Berlin as 5 mins from the main Rail Station. 30 minutes by train from the Airport. More of a Business Hotel than a family Hotel as no extras. A rather square plain building but most buildings in Berlin are Functional in their design

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the railway or building sites. But Double glazing keeps out any noise

Nice clean and cosy room with all amenities, very welcoming front desk staff, and on top of that great breakfast in the morning. Also, you get a free ticket to use in the city train/sub-way/bus for the entire Berlin region throughout the duration of your stay. The location is central - just walking distance to all the historic city center attractions. If you want to connect to the Tegel Airport then just take a bus (TXL) within walking distance from this hotel. The only trouble is the wireless internet, which they offer it free, but is ultraslow. Even if you buy their paid-internet service, still is very slow and is frustrating. Overall, a good place to stay in Berlin for touristic/business purposes.

Hotel is an about 5 min walk from the main train station in Berlin. Very easy to reach.

Rooms are a little small, but good enough. One chair, one desk with a chair and a wardrobe. Bath room has a small walk in shower and is relatively small. Basically only one person can be inside the bathroom.

Beds are comfortable. Electric plugs are next to the bed and desk. Well done! Also the electrical system makes sense, with few, but useful light switches.

My 2 issues with the hotel were the extremely slow "free of charge" internet. There is a faster version for 8 or 10 Euros. The free of charge internet is barely enough to get a 4+ mb email. Also the system loses constantly the connection to the service provider and you have to log yourself in again and again.
The other issue was that I had laundry and it was only returned the next day evening. So be careful if you only stay 2 nights.

Breakfast was quite good, with all the usual goodies. Orange juice was barely drinkable. Some sweet yellow water.

I had to room facing the inside of the hotel. I had to walk a long way from the elevator, but it was really very quite at night.

If it hadn't been for the laundry and the internet, I would have gladly given a very good rating.
