“Wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We booked this hotel for a four day stay in berlin and were delighted with it. It is situated near the old Checkpoint Charlie, which is a bit of a tourist trap during the day, but quiet at night. This is very important to me as I am a light sleeper. But anyway our room was away from the main road facing a courtyard. Very nicely designed room, comfortable bed with duvets! So much nicer than those awful blankets and sheets that so many hotels still use!

The hotel is easy access to the train line and many famous landmarks are within walking distance anyway.

Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard but the street is quiet at night anyway

Winters have made a very nice job. Not just perfect location, near the Checkpoint Charlie, Stazi and Gestapo museum, but also near the U-Ban, that gives you a perfect connection with every single corner of Berlin and Tegel Airport.

Room Tip: Cannot do: hotel is very big.

The hotel was booked direct from the UK for a weekend stay. It is excellently located for Check Point Charlie with a metro station close by, less than 10 mins walk. Be careful though as there are a few hotels in this chain around these streets and you may well end up in the wrong one. We did and we were not the first, it happens a lot so navigate by street name and not the hotel name when asking directions.
The twin bed rooms are excellent with a shower / wc separate to the main room. Very clean and tidy. Your room key gets you in the hotel and once past reception through another security door to the list. Reception is modern, bright with free wifi and staffed with very helpful receptionists. There is a breakfast room that doubles as an evening restaurant but we did not use it. The buffet breakfast looked ample. Our breakfasts were taken in the many coffee shops around the locals streets, reasonable, clean and long opening hours. Well worth seeking out. The rooms gave TV a chair and desk but do vary considerably in size so again worth checking what you get given by reception to what is available. Check point Charlie's is a 10 min walk and the Brandenburg Gate about 15 to 20 mins. Go there for the start of the free walking tours where are plenty and often. We found a few bars for a beer close by the hotel but none were too smart but very friendly. Function over style. All in all you can not go wrong realy if you want a decent, clean and friendly place to stay. It can be found on most of the booking websites but cheaper to do direct. If and when I go back to Berlin , I am happy to stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed in three rooms on the first floor and all were well worth the just under £45 a night we pa...

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.
