“Don't expect much, be prepared for some weird situations in Berlin”
Reviewed 13 May 2011

I stayed at the Amaryl City Hotel in Berlin for some days with my partner. We urgently needed a room to stay in for four days and this hotel seemed to be a reasonable choice. Rooms are OK (our was) but you hear everyone walking through the hall. It is not expensive but we has some weird experience with a young receptionist - he wanted to reserve a room for us at the price a little bit higher (some 20%) than it was written on the web. After that we made a reservation on the web ourselves and the price was even lower (some 5%) than written on their website (!) We than turned back and packed in. For this reason we've preferred to talk to other receptionist later on. There were two others who were doing their job as professionals. Quite strange and bizarre experience for the European capital. The hotel was than quite decent for some days stay. But: be aware at suspicious receptionist.

Room Tip: Do ask for the price before comming. Ask twice.

125 Euros for a single room? Sorry, did you mean a single broom cupboard? The rooms are so small you couldn't swing a cat in it, although your average alley cat would be far too discerning to ever grace this place with their presence. At least the room had a tv, although request a remote control at your own peril as the porter seems to interpret this request as a euphemism for indecent proposals. And contrary to what the website advertises, the WiFi is not free.
Also be aware to have enough cash on you because this 'quirky' hotel requires advance payment in cash before you can actually see the room...

recommendation: check out!

We stayed here for a few nights in June 2007. We needed a base in berlin for a few days as we were heading to dresden for a conference. This hotel is more like a glorified hostel. Room was big but bathroom was gross, room very plain and not like the pictures on hotels.com again another misleading representation. The breakfast was ok filled the spot but my boyfriend hated it so he went without. It was a very old fashioned hotel reminded me of something from a WWII movie. The lift nearly killed us the first day so we used the stairs even with our heavy suitcases as we were worried we'd be decapitated!! The location was great really central. If i was a student looking for somewhere to put down the head for the night fine. But this hotel is not for a romantic break with your significant other!! The staff were fine i have to say.

We were caught up in the volcano problem in Berlin and this awful hotel took advantage of us. We decided that we could not stay there and they refused to give us our money back. In the end they gave us 10 euros each so they made 360 euros for doing nothing. Don't go to this hotel - there are many other hotels in Berlin and this one is unbelievably bad. We lost so much money and didn't even use any of the dreadful facilities.

To start with it, I have never written a review online however after my stay at the Amaryl I felt compelled to warn any potential visitors.

I feel is difficult to classify this place as a Hotel its closer to being a Hostel but even that is being generous. On arrival you are greeted by what can only be described as a building site. The service as you arrive at reception is truely appauling. The breakfast is barely edible accompanied with warm orange juice.

If you are unfortunate enough to stay here I highly recommend you do not use the Lifts!

I would not recommend this 'Hotel' to anyone

Pro's - Good location.

Con's - Ant infested bedrooms, bathrooms and beds. Hostel not a hotel. Owner wouldn't understand 'Customer Care' in a million years. Fire doors wedged open with fire extinguishers. Warm orange juice.

Would I recommend? - Are You having a Laugh!

The Hotel is situated in quite a good location, however this is the only good point. The external approach of the hotel is an indication of what to expect, a dilapidated state, showing a lack of care and maintenance. This general theme is continued through the service recieved by staff.

Our room was on the fifth floor, and we arrived at night. While the idea of having corridor lighting on a timed switch may be environmentally friendly, it would be much more useful if the lights stayed on long enough for us to get to our ant-infested room.

The room was advertised as a three bed room, but was in fact two singles and a sofa, and the bedding was not changed at all during our stay.

The bathroom had notices that you were to leave you towels on the floor if you required new ones. However every night we cam back over the whole week we stayed there, they were still on the floor when we returned in the evening.

The hair dryer in the bathroom was appaling, as effective as an asthmatic dog breathing on you and emitted a smell of burning electrics.

The television had no remote control- not the biggest problem however.

The breakfast was possibly the worst point of the stay, it was literally a selection of processed meats a plastic cheese with stale bread rolls. Or the option of mueseli with some room temperature milk, that i doubt had been chilled at all.

The hotel management on the second night of the stay demaned a security deposit from our group due to damages allegedly caused by us during our stay, despite the fact the damages were clearly old and had been there probably since the hotel was last decorated (likely pre-dating the fall of the wall). The alternative to paying the deposit was that they would kick us out. They said that the deposit would be against any further damages, however the following morning they decided to keep the deposit, and again threatened us with turfing us out. We were a large group of about 50 people, on a study visit, however there seemed to be some confusion between us and another large group of students also staying the hotel, and as such we were all treated as one mass group.

On the final day we asked that we could leave our bags in the hotel as we were not due to leave berlin till late afternoon. The management wanted 3 euros per person, which isnt unreasonable as local secure storage cost roughly the same. However, the secure storage room the hotel promised turned out to be an adjacant disused store front, with the entire groups bags on full display to passers by.

If anybody has seen guesthouse paradiso or fawlty towers and laughed at the notion of a hotel that bad, think again that places like that actually exist. Avoid this Hotel at all costs. Sleep in your car if you have to.
