“Great location for budget traveller”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

Is located in a convenient place with easy access to travel routes. Rooms were big enough for 3 of us, and were cleaned to a good standard. Bathroom however is badly designed. Struggled to get out the shower because the sink is in the way. And can't bend over the sink because the shelf is in the way! Staff were helpful and eager to speak English. Breakfast ok, just your average continental which you'd expect. Overall good for a traveller on a budget.

This small hotel occupies one floor of the house. Very cozy and clean rooms, though the furniture in the room old but well maintained. Bathroom looks great and modern on the background of old furniture in a room in the hotel good service and a standard breakfast in a small dining room.
The hotel is located on the street Kurfürstendamm, which is considered the head of the street for shopping in Berlin. In walking distance from the hotel metro Adenauerplatts.
If you are on a business trip or vacation and do not plan to spend most of their time at the hotel, the CITY wish for you.

The city hotel am Kurfurstendamm is very well situated, right on the Kurfurstendamm. It is less than a 2 minute walk to the u-bahn (subway) station adenauerplatz, where also a lot of busses have a stop.
Along the Ku'damm there are a lot of shops, the most nearest to the hotel are quite upscale, but also more chains are there. The side streets are full of restaurants, and very close to the hotel there are some bakeries and a bar. The walk to restaurants is a bit farther then one might think, since the Ku'damm is very long. But almost in front of the hotel there is a bus stop, where you can take a bus along the Ku'damm. If you have a welcome card of city card, you can access the bussess for free.

The hotel ads say it is a 3 star hotel, but I would not rate it more than 2,5 stars.
It is located on the first and 4th and 5th floors of an typically older Berlin building, with the building built around a central courtyard. There is a small elevator.
There is no real lobby, next to the reception desk there is one chair and a display of some tourist flyers, with a drink and snack machine. There is a breakfast area. On the first floor, the rooms are located either on the reception side, or on the other side of the central hallway. The rooms on the 5th floor can be accessed by going to the 4th floor by elevator, and then taking the stairs to the 5th floor.

The rooms are nothing special, perhaps some a tad outdated in design, but they are clean, with good beds, a seat, tv and small but clean bathroom. Don't expect fanacy designed or hip decors, but for a good night's sleep during a city trip, the rooms will suffice.
I stayed in a single room at the courtyard. The room was not large, but there was enough space for a suitcase and moving around a bit, next to a single bed, 2 smaller tables and chairs and a closet. There was no noise from outside, only sometimes you would hear the taps from the nextdoor bathroom. The rooms on the Ku'damm had a bit more outside noise, but it wasn't very disturbing, but this was in winter.

The staff was okay, they were helpfull when they could. I have read reviews stating they could hardly speak english, but eventhough I mostly spoke german with them, their english seemed more than okay to me!

There is wifi, but you have to ask coupons for that, which are free, but only valid for 1 hour after logging in. Mostly I got more than 1 at a time though, so no problem there.

All in all, for a (short) city trip, the hotel is okay, as it is clean, good located and mostly a fair price-quality comparison. As you pay less than in better hotels, don't expect superior amenities.
For a city trip I would again consider the hotel, if budget was not too large.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 5th floor are under the roof and can only be reached by stairs from the 4th floor. Ther...

The location of the hotel is very good, very close to a metro station. Rooms size are reasonably sized, though conditions are old but clean.The hotel reception is not located on the ground floor; one must walk up the staircase or take a lift in order to get to the reception (beware the entrance at the ground floor does not look like a hotel). No kettle or tea/coffee making facilities are provided in the room, not convenient if you are traveling with babies or young children that needs hot boiling water. Breakfast included with the hotel is very reasonable.

We liked the hotel, the rooms (even though they were not that modern), the food was good(but it was the same everyday ) and information provided by the staff was helpful.
We liked it very much that it was on a street full with shops for every kind of person.

Now, the bad aspects. One of them will be the bad connection with the city center. even though the underground station was close enough, we had to change 2 subways and a train to get to the main atractions.

All in all, we liked the hotel but for the next visit, we will try to find a hotel closer to the city centre.

Our recent college group to Berlin really enjoyed staying at the City-Hotel which is spread out over several floors of a classic Berliner Wohn- und Geschäftshaus. The international staff was welcoming, extremely friendly and the breakfast was fantastic. This is not a new or modern hotel, but most of the rooms are very spacious, some even feature balconies and the value for the price charged is just right. Nothing beats the location right in the heart of everything, easy walking distance to bars and restaurants, shopping etc. The hotel does not have air-condition which can be problem for those used to it on a hot summer day, but they provide fans for those who ask.
