“Lovely garden respite, service perfunctory to minimal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2010

We recently stayed for 7 nights, having booked 2 suites and a single room. The rooms were clean and somewhat quirky, as previously described. The garden was a real treat, a lovely place to relax and enjoy the daily included breakfasts. The desk service was, however, minimal and begrudging at best. Requests for information or help with dinner reservations etc. were met with abruptness or incomprehension. The phone itself in the room had to be rented (although once rented there was no charge for local calls). The suites were located on the 3rd and 4th floor (actually the 4th and 5th) with no one to help us up with our bags. Although there was a coffee machine on the ground floor that was always available, there was a charge to make a cup of coffee or tea, symptomatic of a lack of graciousness or the lack of providing any extra comforts to guests. All in all, none of us would stay there again.

I only stayed there two short nights, and in a single room, which was on the small side - but what I look for in a hotel is a comfortable and quiet sleep, and this I got in abundance.

The room was charming, and overlooking the quiet and nice garden at the back (I have no idea how quiet the rooms at the front are however.)

The location is, I think, quite good for a city the size of Berlin. Very close to the main train station, and I walked to the center very easily.

I really enjoyed the place, and would definitely stay again.

We loved this place. It's on the northerna edge of Mitte and has great transport links (two underground stations close by and trams and buses past the door) but actually with a tiny bit of energy you can just walk into town, which is pleasant and interesting. Our beautiful room was very comfortable and we liked the historic feeling of the building and its odd layout. As well as the old building there are some newer rooms out in the very pretty (and peaceful) garden, so I suppose those in the know could choose which sort of "feel" they wanted for their stay. There's no dinner but there are some fantastic restaurants nearby, including the "other" Honigmond round a couple of corners. Breakfast at the Honigmond Garden was excellent and effectively unlimited so you could eat for the day! The reception is nice and club-like and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. If we were lucky enough to return to Berlin we'd be back at this lovely hotel without hesitation.

We stayed four days and four nights in Berlin and were lucky enough to find this wonderful hotel. It's very centrally located on the busy Invalidenstrasse but absolutely quaint and serene. Many of the "must see sights" are walking distance-at least for someone who likes to walk. The most interesting restaurants are just around the corner and you are a stone throw away from the happening place: Prenzlauer Berg.
Berlin is always worth a trip and the Honigmond Garden Hotel makes it difficult to leave this terrific city.

This hotel is in the heart of Berlin, near the brand new Hauptbahnhof and within walking distance of many of the city's major museums, galleries, cafés and designer shops of Oranienburgerstrasse and Hackesche Höfe, the bookshops of Prenzlauer Berg, theatre and opera. It's just down the road from the magnificent old natural history museum and round the corner from the historic Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof, the last resting place of writers, philosophers, actors, including Bertolt Brecht, Helene Weigel, Heinrich Mann, G.W.F. Hegel. From my suite of rooms on the third floor (no lift! good exercise! incredibly peaceful!) I looked down into the delightful oasis of the hotel garden: its pebble paths wind past trees and flowering bushes, a bridge crosses a small fish pond. Oskar the cat keeps an eye on fish, visiting birds and hotel guests. The rooms are bright, clean, and furnished rather theatrically, with an eclectic mix of history and humour. Falling asleep I had the choice of focussing on a large gold-framed painting of a high-seas battle between pirate ships or watching the wide-screen TV. There was a generous bathroom, a small but well-equipped kitchen, and a charming sitting area. The breakfasts were excellent, the staff extremely helpful, there's a computer for guests in the reception area, and a big bowl of chocolates. In some ways the Honigmond - the name means "honeymoon" - offers a little less than expected (rooms without telephone, and private internet access had to be purchased) but in important ways it offers much more. Its surprises and charm place it in a class of its own.

My wife and I stayed at the Honigmond Gardens for 2 weeks June-July 2008. We had a large apartment one floor above ground level overlooking the garden/courtyard. The apartment was pleasantly quaint/eclectic; the recently remodeled bathroom was first-rate.
The staff are exceptionally nice. The garden is a treat...we enjoyed breakfast outside every morning except when the weather forced us inside. Breakfast features an excellent selection of pastries, cereals, juices, fruit, breads, meats, and cheeses. The apartment was quiet...like silent...throughout the evening and night.
The Honigmond experience was nearly flawless (assuming that kind people, good food, quiet, and a beautiful garden meet your specifications for "flawless").
The clientele (during our stay, anyway) was predominantly German. This observation may relate to my only criticism of the Honigmond Gardens. No credit cards; only cash or one of several EU (only) debit cards. For an international visitor this was a pain in the behind; I wound up transferring the entire amount of a 14-night stay in advance to the Honigmond's bank (at E165 per night). I have no regrets whatsoever at having done so; it just was aggravating to manage the relationship between the Honigmond; the Honigmond's bank; and my bank. This is the only downside of staying at this privately (and excellently!) managed property.
And I should note as well...the location is just about perfect: at the north side of Mitte a short walk or tram-ride from Prenzlauer-berg. If, like us, you're not a great fan of traditional German food but thrive on inexpensive, international, fusion-type food, you can't beat Prenzlauer-berg.

This hotel is worth every penny!! They've paid attention to all the details and it shows. The friendly staff makes you feel immediately welcomed. If you've got an early flight out and would otherwise miss breakfast, they'll pack a lunch for you to take along.

The location is convenient for exploring Mitte and a short walk into Prenzlauer Berg.

In response to an earlier review: there is now an elevator in the hotel.

The rooms are extremely comfortable, quite, clean and artistically furnished.
