To be sure, this is not one of the usual hotel chains. It is different but if you are looking for something special this might be it. Try not to get the room in the basement though. If the bathroom were any smaller one might not fit inside. And it was a bit dark.
Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean. A bit far from the city center but good public transportation close by.

this is a cross between a b and b and a hotel and so is perhaps not for everyone, but I just loved it and would highly recommend it. Clean, hospitable, great breakfast, well-priced, and of course Friedenau is one of Berlin's undiscovered secrets....

Stayed for a few days and loved it - with the possible exception of my bathroom, where taking a shower in the tub was a bit challenging. This, however, paled in comparison with the rooms that were large for German standards, the beautiful garden and breakfast room, the superb breakfast and the laid back atmosphere.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, don't stay here if you like chain hotels. But if you like to see the real Berlin, not the touristy part, with great access to the center via S and U Bahn, and stay in an old neighborhood with loads of old buildings, stay here.

If you are the sort of person who walks into a hotel with a tick-list of features which you expect a hotel to have - don't stay here. But, if you're more relaxed, you're likely to be delighted. It's quiet, old-fashioned with comfortable and spacious bedrooms into which practical, but not overly luxurious, bathrooms have been inserted. There's off-road car parking, and a small garden, complete with cat. The proprietors are welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is served in a comfortable, and decidedly ornate room, and the, cold, buffet is varied and excellent.

A five minute stroll takes you to Friedenau S-bahn station, and, after a further 10 minutes, you can be at the Brandenburg Gate - so why stay in the city centre, especially since Berlin public transport is so inexpensive and efficient?

A party of four of us have stayed here twice, and would certainly return.

Oh - and don't miss the cream cakes at Frau Behrens Torten in nearby Rheinstrasse!

I have stayed at the Friedenau hotel three times with my wife on holiday in Berlin. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a stylish and comfortable hotel that is different to the usual chain hotels and that has a friendly welcome.

The hotel is themed as a culture hotel and holds salon evenings for local writers. The rooms are tastefully decorated and often have original artwork by Berlin artists.

The lovely breakfast is in a light and open room with views of the beautiful garden. In summer you can breakfast in the garden.

The hotel is in a quiet and up-market suburb, five minutes walk to the S1 metro line that takes you into central Berlin in 15 minutes.

The owner speaks excellent English and is helpful and friendly.

There is no lift in the hotel.
