1.1km from Sophies WeltenWe stayed at the Hotel Kastanienhof for six nights. We really enjoyed this East Berlin neighborhood with lots of activity, close-by transportation, and interesting shops. Our hotel room was good sized and the bed and pillows were comfortable. The shower pressure was good. The room had a kettle for hot water and I was given a fan upon request. Leeria at the reception desk was very helpful and kind. Unfortunately, on the way to the airport, I realized that I had forgotten a pair earrings (not expensive, but one-of-a-kind) and since we were traveling with another couple, we couldn’t return. I called Leeria (I hope my spelling is correct.) and she ran up to the room and found the earrings. Beate, from the hotel then sent me an email to let me know that the earrings were in the mail. And, indeed, they arrived today. What lovely ending to our stay at Hotel Kastanienhof in Berlin! I highly recommend this hotel and will always be grateful to the kind folks who work there.
