“Clean, Modern and Great Location - what more could you want!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

This hotel was a great base for exploring Berlin! Charlies Checkpoint and the metro was very close to the hotel. The rooms were modern and clean. We had bed and breakfast and the breakfast was lovely with enough choice to set you up for the day. The receptionists were helpful offering directions and maps if you needed assistance. I would recommend this hotel for use as a base whilst in Berlin.

The staff were most helpfull from an early arrival to giving us any information we required, location wise the Hotel could not be more central for visiting all the multitude of the Cities attractions. The breakfast is as good as it gets and is needed fo set you up for a day in agreat friendly city.

We stayed two days in Berlin and did some research to find a good quality hotel in a good location. We chose Winters Hotel which is opposite one museum, in walking distance to the Holocast Museum and 100m from Checkpoint Charlie.

The rooms are very modern and comfortable. My only issue is the twin donnas rather than a larger singular doona.

Parking is great (onsite in a central courtyard). There is also public parking on the street opposite the hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms overlook the street so there is not much difference between the rooms

The hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly. It was also a good location.
However the down sides for me were the shower had no where to hold the shower gel or shampoo so I had to keep putting them on the floor. The bath towel wasnt much bigger than the hand towel and the walls of our room were so thin that we could hear talking from the room next to ours. Which made us a little uncomfortable as to what they could hear from ours!. Which spoilt our weekend away.
The hotel was nice but I wouldnt stay here again.

My fiancé and I stayed for 3 nights in February 2014. The address was Zimmerstrasse, not Hedemannstrasse.

The location is great for checkpoint Charlie, the SS and Gestapo headquarters, Friedrichstrasse, Gedarmenmarkt, Koncerthaus, opera, and the middle of Unter der Linden, hence between Museum Island and the Brandenburg Gate.

The hotel looks a bit box like and after booking it we found a very negative review but I could find very little to fault it.

It was very quiet and comfortable.

The staff were friendly and helpful. I speak a little German but not enough. The staff were happy to switch to English when my German ran out. Even the cleaners were ready with a "good morning" or "good afternoon" when we met in the corridor.

The entire hotel was beautifully clean and the rooms were very comfortable.

Someone has reviewed uncomfortable beds but this was not my experience and I do have some joint issues so I can be quite critical of comfort of beds. It was a little weird to have a kingsized bed with 2 single duvets.

The rooms were a very good size. They were facilitated with fantastic showers, ample storage space, great lighting and good controllable heating, a minibar, and there was a self-setup safe in the room. There was also free Wifi Internet.

The only things I could knock the hotel for are, firstly that there was no complimentary tea/coffee making facility in the room (this may be a British thing). Secondly the breakfast was 14€ where you could get it for 3 or 4€ just outside. Thirdly, there were complimentary Internet connected PCs in the lobby but printing from these was very difficult as they did not allow saving files and then using an online email provider to mail the saved files to reception. I had to generate files then mail them from my mobile phone to reception to have them printed - this all worked but was hassle. The fourth niggle was that the Wifi kept logging you off, so we had to reconnect repeatedly which was a little painful on our mobiles.

Given the breakfast cost we didn't try the restaurant but found a very cheap pizza point over the road and there was a lovely bar over the road too. There were also fast food kiosks at the corner so bratwuerst, Indian food and kebabs were 50 metres away.

All in all a very good hotel.

Stayed at this hotel between 20-3-14 until 23-02-14. The hotel is spotlessly clean.great stay, nice big modern room, Breakfast was also very good,the only complaint we had was the bed was to hard,I could feel thee bed springs, not good for a 4 star hotel in a superior room, otherwise faultless, close to all the sights and subway.
