“Great little Pension in Berlin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

I stayed here 14 years ago when I studied in Germany. So when my family came with me this time, I wanted to stay here again. We were not disappointed. It is located at an excellent location just 1/2 a block from Kurfurstendam and about 3 blocks from an U-Bahn or S-Bahn stop. The price is excellent considering its location. The rooms are good sized and have a refrigerator in them. The breakfast is a typical European breakfast full of breads, cheeses, meats and other items, all very good. They also provide free wifi in the breakfast/lobby area 24 hours a day. The only slight downside is there is no soap or shampoo provided for the shower and the pillows are super thin even folded in half.

We were very happy with this hotel. Well positioned only 50 metres from Kurfurstendam and Ubahn station where cheap and regular transport is available. Good breakfasts. Will return next time we are in Berlin.

Its a friendly, clean pension hotel in what must once have been a residential apartment block that offers spacious rooms and a good breakfast. No air conditioning or in room mini-bar but that's no problem at this price. The location is great if you want to be near what was the center of the old West Berlin, with its chic shops, cafes and charm. I hadn't been to Berlin since 1983 and of course it's much larger today which means it does take longer to get around - the wall just isn't there to stop you going further east! So it's no longer as central as it once was, though it's still the place to shop. However, the U1 tube line is only a short walk away and the buses are good too - get a day pass or if you're staying longer, a season ticket! On street parking is easy to arrange too (mention it on the booking form) and its not hard to get to from the autobahn.

We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

Hotel Kurfurst was probably the hotel I was searching for during my Berlin trip. Among the three hotels I stayed during my trip to Berlin, this was the best hotel at a pocket-friendly price. Location was great, 50 metres from Kurfurstandam and Bleibtreustrasse Bus stand, directly connected to the Tegel Airport with bus which will help you to save some extra euros! The single room was spacious enough(unlike other 'big' hotels with a small cramped single room), with neatly decorated interior and a clean attached toilet with shower. Breakfast was adequate and good (though I must agree with someone who will say they don't serve us branded food!). The dining hall was also nice. The rooms remind us old European building. All these I got only for 40Euro/night. Internet was chargeable but affordable. Booking from website may help to save you some extra euros. Strongly recommended for business traveller, single and family who wants to save money and still want a nice stay. However, no swimming pool or spa.

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious. Some rooms have older TV sets. Booking from travel websites may help to get...

44 euro/night for spacious room with a toilet, a shower and a balocony. breakfast is included.

Staffs are friendly. The reception is 24/7 open.

The building itself is not so new, but is renovated in a proper fashion. I find no problems. Clean and neat room in a very convenient but quiet location.

Line bus 109 brings us directly from Tegel airport to the corner of the hotel. It takes 20-30 min.
Just go straight up to the north along Bleibtreustrasse, then you get Sbahn station Savignyplatz in 5 min. walk.

There are many restaurants and cafes in the neighbourhood. Shopping spree on the Ku´damm.

One more thing: Lights in the public space (Entrance on the ground floor and stairs) are turned off during the night.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

We stayed here last weekend and can recommend this to everyone who wants to stay in a small and clean hotel close to everything.

We were three adults and one room was enough. It was really clean, big plus!

Breakfast was also good, it was enough of food and variety.

Only minus are that you have to pay for internet and that staff do not speak that good English, but we managed well :)

Bus 109 to Tegel Airport goes 70 m from the hotel!

Hotel was also cheap!
