“Great location, don't be put off by the entrance”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This older pension is perfectly located on Wittenbergplatz, with subway and bus connections right outside. Ka Wa De just across the street. The reception is on the second floor, after going up what seems to be a shabby facade and stairway. The lower floor was being rehabbed when I was there. The room was comfortable, breakfast was typical tasty German selection. Don't expect much from limited staff. Priced right for the area. Don't be scared off by the entrance!

Room Tip: Noisy street, ask for a room in back

Great location, spacious bright, clean room, helpful staff. Had a lovely quiet stay here. Building has lots of old fashioned charm. The square is busy and the u-bahn is a minute away. KaDeWe opposite and worth visiting. Highly recommended.

My son and I stayed for 3 nights and found the location excellent as we were on a museum/art trip. The U-bahn is located opposite the hotel at about 2-3 mins walk; all of Berlin is at your disposal from here (recommend getting a Welcome Berlin transport ticket for all public transport - very good value; 26 euro for 72-hour ticket). Locally there are a number of restaurants and numerous bars and the very busy Witty's for currywurst and bratwurst (great little hub of activity). Smallish supermarket next door to hotel for daily expedition rations.
The room was very large. The room was cleaned every day and towels changed. The TV didn't work properly as very poor reception. Maybe the hotel owners should think about installing cable/satellite. The breakfast was the usual fare with enough to stock up on.
All-in-all this is a very good hotel in an excellent location.

We were staying for 5 nights,
The service and the staff was above all expectations !
The rooms are big enough, the breakfast was wonderful and the location is very good, next to the U and in front of the Ka-De-We.
Highly recomended !!

It is a very good Bed and Breakfast Pension, in a great location, close to nearly everything.
We stayed as a family in two rooms: One Double and One Triple. The rooms were spacious and clean. Having the main gate and the pension and the rooms keys, gave us the homey atmosphere. Breakfast had all the basic continental mix. The staff was polite and welcoming, but all of them speak only German, except a young man that is taking the shift on Friday. He was very welcoming and helpful in supplying us with maps and directions and brochures. The supermarket in the next building, is a high plus to the pension location. Having the underground station just few meters away is a high advantage.
My wife, who is intending to visit Berlin alone within the coming few months, felt very secured so she decided that definitely she will stay in Pension Classic.
Thanks for the staff, and thanks for the young man who speaks English, for helping us in catching our appointment in Helios-Klinikum Berlin, Klinikum Buch

Nice b&b in a great location (Wittenbergplatz). Very easy to get to when you travel from the tegel airport. there is nothing to complain but still this will not be the best pension I've stayed. Room was big and clean but with no atmosphere, the same with a breakfast room - some music will make it more pleasent ! But breakfast was very good, fruits, cornflakes, fesh rolls, ham and cheese...
The is a wi fi in the rooms, staff is ok but do not speak english...

We stayed two nights at Hotel-Pension Classic and once we found it had no real problems. The entrance stairs and the hotel itself are rather shabby but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff pleasant enough.
The one real problem we had was finding the hotel on arrival in Berlin. The instructions for travel from the airport were fine but that was where the usefulness ended. Despite what the hotel staff will tell you the hotel is not opposite KaDeWa, in fact that is confusing information as KaDeWa fronts three streets and one side is actually on Wittenbergplatz - the same as the hotel. But the hotel is not opposite. If you catch the bus to outside KaDeWa you need to cross the dual carriageway street. You will walk pass the underground station as you cross the square. The hotel is on the square and is located between two cafes (as you will be advised by the hotel). You will also be told it is behind a large iron gate, well it is actually a security door (large and iron to be sure) so don't go looking for a gate, it will only confuse you as it did us. During daylight hours the hotel signage is visible but not at dusk or in the evening.
Breakfast is excellent value and the location is excellent.
