“An excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2012

Spacious well equipped studio apartment close to Zoologischer Garten Bahnhof. Very clean, really good bathroom with fantastic shower. Short walk to Ku Damm and other shops and facilities. The breakfasts looked very good but we did not have anything to eat there.

After some trouble finding the hotel (this was my own fault, I guess I struggle with the german way of marking the roads), I finally found Goethe87. I came kinda off season, so there was no waiting, and my room was available upon arrival. My room/apartment was really fantastic, with my own kitchenette, a walk-in closet, and a really great shower. There was one thing I felt was missing though, and that was the complimentary toiletries that you usually get in hotels, but this was my first time staying at an apartment hotel, so this might be normal for these kind of hotels.

Close to the Zoologischer subway/train/bus-station, you will find a grocery store, with everything you could possibly need. A couple of streets over, you will find a really good shopping street, with small shopping malls, Starbucks, larger international stores(H&M, urban outfitters, Zara and so on), and local brands as well.. All in all, after settling in, and getting to know the area a little better, I can say I really enjoyed my stay at the Goethe87.

Really nice room, with basic self catering facilities (hob, fridge etc.). Some really nice restaurants and cafes nearby and not too far from the tube which gets you right into the centre. Also very close to the lovely park and Zoo. The staff were very helpful and all spoke good English. You get touch card to enter your room, which also get's you in the main door if you come back late. Free Wi-Fi was also good and a decent speed connection.

Will definitely stay here again.

I just thought I'd repeat what everyone else is saying about this hotel: fantastic. The room was spacious, light, and had two desks -- one in a small alcove near the window which is very pleasant. It even included a small kitchen, although I doubt most people staying a night or two would need that. The shower is amazing: it has an option to shoot water horizontally at you from four heads, so it's a bit like a jacuzzi. I'm afraid that's not so good for the environment, because you never want to stop! The Wifi is also probably the fastest i've ever had in a hotel as well. I came here on business, but if I return to Berlin for vacation, I will definitely consider Goethe.

This was my second time in the Hotel Goethe 87. The room (or rather suite) represents excellent value for money and is in a very central location (in Charlottenburg).

The decor of the room is pleasant and you get a lot of space. In addition to the large bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, the room also has kitchen, table and a chaise longue. I really appreciate the possibility of preparing oneself a snack and a cup of tea and coffee. Internet is wireless and free of charge (the password can be found in the elevator).

Check in is either in the cafe downstairs or in the reception on the first floor. If you arrive late, the key will be left in a safe for you and you have to call a number to retrieve it. There is no iron in the room but the hotel can provide one quickly. I did not try the breakfast but there are various fantastic bakeries and restaurants for breakfast just down the road.

Overall, I can only recommend this hotel.

This hotel is just fab. In a good location close to Zoo Station and the zoo itself plus all the shops on the Ku'dam. Easy to reach all the historical bits of the city from here via the S-Bahn etc.The hotel is modern and the rooms are enormous - we stayed in the Ballade - with fantastic showers and good TV and mini kitchen facilities. Huge walk in wardrobe if you need it too. Really can't overemphasise what good value this place is. Stay there!

We stayed at the Goethe87 a few years ago, and i rated it 5 stars. This time, as you see, it's down to 4.

Yes, it's still good value and the apartments are modern and very pleasant and, obviously, it's still well-located.

However, they were clearly having issues with the housekeeping. We stayed for 5 nights and, NOT ONCE, was the apartment serviced properly. The problems ranged from the major - NO servicing at all one day - to the minor - the removal of a set of towels, leaving one set for 2 people.

Additionally, a little more friendliness from the front desk would be nice.

One last point: we had not realised that the building is not airconditioned - and a fan doesn't make it.

We'd still stay there next time but I'd hope that the housekeeping issues had been rectified by then.
