“Valentine's weekend”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We arrived by car and parked right at the end of the street for a fee of 10 Euro / 24 h, and it was the cheepest and nearest parking fee what we could get next to the hotel.
The position of the hotel is almost perfect, it is in Mitte Berlin in the centre next to the historical border Checkpoint Charlie and you can walk from the hotel to several touristical points without getting tired.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, they speak english as well and could give us useful tips regarding the sightseeing and transport(gave us also maps).
The room with a double bed was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable, we had a big flat tv and also an internet cable which we could've use for free. Free wifi was only in the lobby.
The breakfast costs 14 Euro / Preson which I consider exagerated, but near to the hotel you can find easily a few turkish and german bakeries and you can have a good breakfast for already 3 Euro / person.
If you want to eat in a restaurant then ask the staff because they can give you good tips and also a vouchers for which you get an extra drink.
We had a lovely Valentine's weekend in the hotel.is.
It was worth the money (88 Euro / 2 nights / 2 person as a special prise for Valentine's Day), and I can recommend it for everyone.

The hotel was very clean and our room was extremely spacious. The bed was large and very comfortable. The ensuite was spotlessly clean. Staff friendly.

The hotel was ideally situated in order to visit several Christmas markets and various tourist spots.

Only criticism would be that we were due to fly out on a Wednesday morning and arrive mid-afternoon, but due to severe fog, our flight was eventually cancelled and we were unable to get a flight until early Friday morning and arrived at the hotel late Friday morning. Having telephoned the hotel on the Wednesday evening, after being advised of our next available flight, we were told that our booking would be amended from 4 nights to 3 nights from Friday until Sunday.

Unfortunately, due to a breakdown in communication within the hotel administration, we were locked out of our room after a long day exploring Berlin. Eventually, after the receptionist had advised us we would have to pay for the extra night, the management agreed to allow us to stay for the Saturday night without extra charge.

However, because we had used Avios points, the hotel refused to admit the situation that had truly occurred and Avios would not refund the wasted points.

Although there is a breakfast room within the hotel, there is no restaurant nor dinners served and the bar is literally a very small bar attached to the reception desk.

Overall the hotel good, but disappointing due to the lack of communication and agreement between the staff.

Room Tip: We had a room in the old part of the hotel, away from the lift, and it was very spacious and peacefu...

Very nice hotel with basic yet cute design, very clean and most importantly: great location. Just few steps from CheckPoint Charlie and Friedrichstraße, 2 minutes from the U-6 subway station, 10 minute walk from Potsdammerplatz. great value for money.
I just wish the staff knew English better and that the wifi would work Bette, but it guess that how it is all over Berlin.
However in overall it was great place to be in.

My best friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in December 2013 (2nd-5th), we arrived in the afternoon and were able to check in immediately. Check in was quick, and the staff were friendly and spoke excellent English. Our room was on the fourth floor, it had 2 single beds, a desk and a chair. It was pretty spacious with plenty of storage space and a safe in the wardrobe. The only problem we found was that the wifi only worked in the lobby, aside of that, we could not fault the hotel.

There is a U-Bahn station less than a five minute walk from hotel, Checkpoint Charlie is about the same distance away. You're also within walking distance from a number of the main attractions, you can easily walk to Potsdamer Platz, as well at the Brandenburg Gate and the Bundestag.

Overall, I would definitely return and would recommend the hotel to others. It was in a nice quite location, but transport routes make it accessible to most of the main sites. I really enjoyed it.

For what you are paying, this hotel is great. The hotel itself is clean and modern, the staff are very friendly, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom was nice. The lobby area is great if you need wifi and although my girlfriend and I didn't have the breakfast, it did look like there was plenty of selection. (Although, there are cafe's on every corner for much cheaper!)

The location has got to be its biggest highlight, in the centre of Berlin with all the main attractions within walking distance (even better during Christmas time with markets scattered over the city). The hotel can feel a bit 'out of it' when it gets dark at night because its actually a couple of minutes beyond Checkpoint Charlie where the streets are very quite, but at no point did we feel uneasy in the area.

Let's be honest, it isn't the greatest hotel you've ever seen, but for the price, it's much better than expected and although I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a couple of days, it does the job perfectly for a few days exploring Berlin.

My boyfriend and I had booked at the Winter Checkpoint Charlie and had paid weeks in advance, confirming the arrival time (around 10:30 pm), however, once we arrived we were told there was a problem with our booking and we had to go to a nearby hotel '5 minutes walk away' (actually 15, which could be very unpleasant if cold/raining or carrying heavy luggage).
Despite this disappointment (which according to other reviews is likely to happen), the Winters at The Wall was very modern, nice and clean and very well located and excellent for the price we paid (£85 for 2 nights, best value for money of all the European hotels I have ever stayed in).
Would recommend and come back myself.

A lovely, comfortable hotel that covers all the necessities. The staff were helpful and the bar area was lovely. Rooms are quite stylish, with good en-suite bathroom and very comfortable beds. We always returned to the room looking immaculate as well.

Biggest plus was the location. It is in walking distance of most of the main tourist sights, and it was very easy to get further afield as well as the nearest U-Bahn was just up the road.

Nothing particularly stand-out about it, but for a clean comfortable place to rest your head after a day exploring sights (or in our case, Christmas Markets), it definitely did the job!!
