Reviewed 27 November 2013

Ibis budget category really surprised me. Hotel is at a very good location (walk distance from Check Point Charlie , Topography of Terror and public U/S transportation). Service was fantastic. Stayed there to run the 2013 Berlin Marathon. So, the night before hotel offered a pasta buffet and on race day breakfast started 05:00 am so runners could have enough time get ready. Amazing staying!

Cheap and very clean. No frills but what we wanted. Good location close to u Bahn and Potsdamer Platz. Close to main tourist sites. Bring your own shampoo and bottle opener. Breakfast ok value. Staff generally friendly.

Easy to book, really cheap inc. breakfast and really quick check-in.

No keys to door, just a code so be careful with it - One of our party cleverly took a photo of theirs but then their phone had run out of battery at the end of the night so back downstairs to see reception.

We had a large double with a bunk bed stretched across it and a sink in the middle of the room. En-suite and a seperate toilet so no complaints. A friend compared it to a chain of budget hotels in France which Ibis probably now own.

Only downside was the lack of a bar, but it was next door to its big brother Ibis which had a fantastic bar with great beer - Would recommend spending the extra 10EUR to stay there rather than the Ibis Budget.

Breakfast was basic and fair enough and extremely busy - Nothing really hot unless you
heat it yourself. Again, would recommend the Ibis next door for a few dollars more :-)

For the prices and the location, you couldn't complain. great view out of bedroom window of the former Gestapo HQ...

Room Tip: I think there are options of either two single beds else a double with a bunk - Not that comfortable...

I knew already the area. This hotel is cheap (I paid less than 40 Eur/night) but I just slept there. It was clean, silent, with a comfortable bed and centrally located. It's not fancy or luxury but I was not looking for more that it offered. And I was a returning guest.

We have selected this Ibis Budget because of the number of advantages: perfect location, good price, well-known chain with service and quality on the expected level.
We have got all this and were quite satisfied, but there were also some drawbacks.
- We did not like sleep quality.
- The room has just no place to put things and clothes (we knew this, and this is because of the "budget" specifics of the hotel, but there could have been at least something).
- The booking process was quite strange: we stayed for 7 nights, the website allowed to book for 6 as maximum. So we booked 6 + 1 separately (this was also a guidance from the website). When we came it turned out that we will have these bookings separate, so we will have to change the room for the last 1 night! It took some effort from us and staff on the reception to keep the same room.

Overall this hotel is a really good choice for a city break. But a bit more expensive hotel (like Ibis next door) can give more value compared to the money spent.
