Hotel Ansbach
Ranked #566 of 635 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed 3 December 2010

We stayed for one week in the end of November.
the staff was very welcoming though their English wasn't great, which was actually the case all over town in some places while being horrific in restaurants...

The hotel was ok, the room was cleaned and tidied daily, not very much else to say, there was a small TV which only showed German channels.. Breakfast was included, and was pretty good, though it was the same stuff all week long, even on the weekend.

One big no no for me was the lack of free WiFi, you had to pay 2euro per hour or 7euro for a whole day.. so keep that in mind if you're coming here.

Nice hotel for the price and the location is pretty good, but I think the mitte area is better for young people coming to visit.

The location of the hotel is excellent - all tipes of transport are just minutes from it. Famous Berlin ZOO is just opposite. We went there to see as much of Berlin sights as possible and we succeeded fully! It's due to friendly and effective staff! Especially we want to thank receptionists Olga and Vika, who helped us to find the most interesting places to visit! Breakfasts also were good and rooms were clean.

Booked this hotel for a 7 day stay because we had to stay in Berlin unexpectedly for another week. We wanted cheap and chearful and thats what we got. We had a twin room with basin, very small. The shower and toliets were down the corridor, but as other rooms on our floor had en-suite we never saw anyone else using them. The hotel is staffed with Russians so launguage was sometimes a problem. The buffet breakfast was just the job, we made up rolls for the day too. Wifi was way over priced so had to visit local cafes with free internet. Overall great location and good value if you require more privacy than a hostel but very basic accomodation.

Left hotel booking right to the last minute & this place was pretty much the only one with 3 nights available (that wasn't charging silly money!). Originally wanted something more central but as it turned out, this hotel is very well located for the price - Wittenbergplatz tube stop is literally two minutes walk, & from there it is only a few stops to get right into the centre on the U2 Pankow line. If you turn up late & hungry, as we did, there are no places to eat - that I could see - but Zoo Station is one stop the other way & there you can find several food vendors (great pizza, currywurst, noodles...)
The hotel itself *is* very basic but for the price, one can't moan too much. It's all kept very clean... they need to sort the pillows out perhaps, as they are not really pillows as I know them to be..! Had to stuff towels under there to get a bit of height, but that's the only gripe really. Breakfast is OK in a continental sort of way; plenty of cheeses, ham, bread & cereals...with UHT milk ;) I only have coffee anyway, & the coffee was very good.
I probably would use this hotel again; *maybe* you could get slightly better for the money but I suspect it would be more out of the way....I would recommend it if you just want somewhere to bed down; for the price & location it is perfectly fine.

We booked this hotel last minute so didn't really have a lot of choice of budget options in central Berlin! The hotel was very good though - did exactly what it said on the tin - no frills simple room which was clean and comfortable. We went for no ensuite as it was cheaper but there was a sink in the room which was useful. The shared shower and toilets were impeccably clean and modern - we were glad we didn't pay the extra EUR15 a night she tried to persuade us to on check-in for ensuite! They also put on a fantastic breakfast in the morning - bread, ham, cheese, cereal, stollen, juices, fruit - more than I expected.

Location wise it is pretty good depending on what you are looking for. Being next to KaDeWe and the Kudamm was great - although very quiet in the evening. We were there for Mauerfall 09, so spent most of our time heading east towards Brandenburg Tor - although late night U-Bahn connections made sure it was very easy to get back. You are also close to Zoologsicher Platz with direct trains to the Airport so it is very well connected.

All in all, a very good budget option and would definitely recommend it to others.

Basic hotel near train station in center of town. Check in was easy and Russian lady was helpful with directions. Room with private bathroom, two twin beds. Radiator worked well and room was comfortable. Plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. Window opened to allow air in. Included small tv and closet. Bathroom was small but worked ok.

I stayed in this hotel as it was recommended by a friend but if I had known what it was really like I would have given it a pass.

I booked the room with a bathroom and as stated in the 2008 reviews it is really basic so all you get is a room with a bathroom (no frills). There is no air conditioning in the room so I had to rely on an open window for fresh air, only the window just tilts forward a little.

There are better hotels closer to the main parts of town which cost the same or close to the price you pay for this so called hotel which is more like a hostel just do your research or go the the tourist information and tell them what budget and where and they can help you book a room for a small fee (EU$4).
