Downsides: - the bed and the floor of our room were not 100% clean; there were a few hairs, a little bit of dust and a few spots; nevertheless, it was acceptable for us, the dirt was quite little and overall, it all made a rather clean impression to anyone not very peaky - after we paid the city tax via the app, it did not show up to the reception; even the next day when we checked out, they were bringing it up although we had already showed them that we paid the day before and they were fine with it - something that may be annoying in all hostels in Berlin was that we had to fill in a lot of personal data and agree with covid rules like testing or vaccine mandate and mask-wearing on the floors; however, these rules were applied on a self-responsible basis in practice so we had no struggles with staff patronizing us - we had to fill in a lot of information twice, once digitally and once on paper; that combined with the reception hidden without signs in the yard made our arrival after an exhausting journey quite lengthy; however, the time it took us to get to the room was still acceptable - in the evening, there was supposed to be silence at 10pm; however, it took somewhat longer until a group of high school students stopped making noise; when I went to the reception a few minutes after 10pm, the reception was all busy and the receptionist did not seem to be happy to hear our complaint; he said he would take care of it soon but it took quite a while until it got quieter; in general, while the reception was not rude, it could have been a bit friendlier Upsides: - wifi and telivision were working well and included English-speaking CNN (although the German television was more interesting for us) - beautiful view into the yard with trees - a comparably low-budget offer for a twin room (about €55 for a hotel room with two beds stuck together) - a lot of good gastronomy and shops in the neighborhood - public transport nearby - generally good isolation; the accomondation was in good shape - the room was quite spacious for the price and had a comfortable bathroom with shampoo and soap fixated at the wall Summary: If you are a neat freak, can't stand any small noise, want only super friendly staff and do not like to fill out forms or formally agree with covid rules, it may be wise to stay away from this hostel. However, especially in comparison to what we could have had otherwise, our stay was quite enjoyable.
We have enjoyed our stay in the Almodovar hotel, the staff was very helpful and great. Hotel has 5 parking spots in the garage for 19€ per night (I am not sure if that was the price). The garage has "lift/shelves" for 4 cars, so only regular cars/SUV up to 2000kg per one and it is quite interesting experience (in a good way). We had VOLVO XC60 and it fitted without any problem :) The rooms are very basic, yet clean and cosy. I think it is not worth to book Suite (which we did), regular room would be the same experience, yet cheaper.

Sketch is located near the Warschauer station, which is handy as you can just hop on the S Bahn and get within 5 minutes to Alexander Platz and other well known sights. The property itself, is a little hiden but a sign at the entrance of building 54 shows the 2 entraces. I usually used the elevator, which is located at the 2nd couryard (left). Note that it is the last elevator in the couryard. As soon as I entered the elevator a feeling of excitement arouse. An atmosphere as in industrialized elevator hit me, all rough and iron (in a positive kind sense). As soon as you arrive to the 3rd floor (You press 2 in the elevator), you will need your code which opens you the main door and the door of your room. The rooms seemed very new (probably refurbished), mattresses are comfortable (not too hard and not too soft). Internet was stable and strong and the overall interior practical and nice! Overall, it has been an awesome experience that I will definitely repeat.
This hotel is basic but provides a good base for a break in Berlin. The location, next to an underground station is most useful. Checkin was welcoming and efficient. The room provides all necessary amenities but lacks comfort. I found the bed to be uncomfortable and the duvet and pillow were lumpy. The heat could not be controlled so the room was hot at night despite it being January. The water pressure in the shower was very good . The rooms were clean and towels changed when necessary but during daily cleaning cups were not cleaned adequately.
I left my luggage here in advance and it was not possible to check in at three in the afternoon.
There was a vignette at check-in. The front desk gave us a room with someone and swiped the card. A man was lying on the bed. Fortunately, it was scary to wear clothes. Going to find her to solve the problem, it was she who made a mistake, but she was frightened and not very satisfied.
The sanitary conditions are not very good, the transportation is very convenient, there are dm and rewe supermarkets nearby, and there is a large shopping mall near the train station.

A very modern, arty and colourful hotel with lots of graffiti type paintwork in the main lobby and restaurant area. The breakfasts were fantastic with a very good variety of food and probably the best scrambled egg I have ever had in any hotel. The staff were very helpful and service was excellent and we had a quiet and comfortable room. The hotel is situated on the 5th floor of a shopping mall and therefore quite hard to find especially if you are arriving by car. They charge a very reasonable 3 Euros a day to park in the adjacent car park and the U Bahn stop Frankfurter Allee is just round the corner. There are a lot of good restaurants for dinner near Samariterstrasse which is a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel or one stop on the U Bahn.
This was my 3rd visit to the nhow, and after the first experience, it just set the tone for me, because the standard was so high. I'm a little late to the game with this review as it was Nov 2019 when I last visited. I had intended to write this not long after but when the pandemic kicked it went off my Radar, and the world as we know it shut down. So now we're able to travel again I will always choose to stay at the nhow Berlin because for me it's such a special place, it ticks all the boxes, it has really affordable and competitive prices for a great stay, in a unique, relaxed, funky and luxurious hotel in a great and accessible location. Berlin has one of the best public transport systems in the world, so whether you want to chill on the river terrace, or sightsee, you can hop on a boat into the center of the city to see the sights by water, or if you wish by foot, public transport, or bicycle. The hotel is just a short walk from the Tram, Bus, Train Bicycle, or Boat, so plenty of easy travel options. At the nhow Berlin, every guest is VIP Rockstar and made to feel that way, by the personable hotel staff and the luxurious and relaxed vibe of the hotel. I found the hotel staff was always courteous, friendly, and professional and went above and beyond to provide a special and memorable first-class stay. I've said in my first review on my Birthday, I was invited into the studio and as a DJ / Producer myself it was a dream come true to be in a high-end professional studio, not only with an awesome view but a studio that has welcomed everyone from the likes of Paul Van Dyk to ZZ Top. I also was fortunate to have had my music releases played in that same SSLdream studio on high-end production studio monitors by the Studio Manager, and by the in house DJ one night, and this was all organized by the hotel, they even left me a birthday cake, and each time on my return, they would leave personal messages in my room welcoming me back. The hotel and its staff are really special and they work hard at making you feel welcome and more than just a paying guest or another tourist. When you first arrive and step through the doors of the hotel, you're visually greeted with a warm and positive vibe of the funky and chic design and motif which carries on through to your room, in fact, all through the hotel including the Bar and Restaurant. It feels like you're stepping into an exclusive club, and when you see your room, you feel like an A-lister celebrity. The attention to detail and standards of the rooms are of VIP quality and the cleanliness is high. Each room has a Nespresso machine, fresh fluffy white bathrobes, and comfy pink slippers, all of which are a nice touch, and not forgetting other quirky and luxurious features, for example, the shower, sound and light blocking curtains, AC, nicely stocked and inexpensive minibar and really comfortable beds. The rooms are of a high standard and well-designed, whether you get the regular standard luxur

I stayed with a group last weekend at Industriepalast. I had a room that I shared with two friends, all seemed fine. I left my Nintendo Switch on the table thinking I could do that if only I, some friends and personnel of the hostel had access to the room. When we got back to the hotel in the evening though, the console itself was gone. I went to the reception to ask if someone might have taken it or brought to lost and found on accident. The employees were just rude about the whole thing and accused my friends of stealing from me. We checked all our bags to see if maybe someone put it in one of our bags while cleaning but nothing was found. They told me they would ask housekeeping if they saw the thing in my room and of course they didn't and once again the people from reception said it was my own fault and I must have lost it somewhere myself. If I wanted to get anymore help they told me to just report it to the police. The security in the hostel itself is awful as well, during the day people at the reception did not pay attention to who walked in at all nor did they bother, they were more busy with themselves. All with all it was a horrible experience and I would recommend all people that want to make a reservation at this hostel to stay as far away as possible.
Hotels Near Stralauer Allee (Berlin) In Berlin Review
The hotel is right at the entrance to the U7 underground station, which is good. However, I find the policy of extra fees appaling. The room was fully booked upfront online and when checking out I was asked a weird question what the nature of my visit to Berlin was (!). Does anyone has the right to ask me about it? What if I do not answer this question? And as it turned out, "Holiday/private/leisure/visiting friends/sightseeing" are the answers which mean you will have to pay extra EUR 3,18 for nothing. Does a private trip mean that I use the room EUR 3,18 "more" than on a business trip? Does the hotel want to punish those on "private" trips and tell them "Do not come to visit Berlin or you must pay extra"??? Ridiculous policy. Not coming to Berlin, next time I will choose places where I am not punished because I am not on a business trip.
Location is awesome. It's almost like living in a park atmosphere. Lots of walking trails nearby, close to downtown and most of the major tourist attractions, but still in a quiet area. Public transit is readily available (bus stop right across the street, and several trams within short walking distance). Front desk staff were incredible throughout our 5-day stay there -- from check-in to check out. As we were in Germany to assist a family member, ours was more like a working holiday than a relaxing one and although our personal circumstances were seemingly constantly in flux, the staff were EXTREMELY courteous and helpful in adapting our reservations several times. The hotel is very clean and well-maintained. There is a nice beer garden in the back where you can get an early start on "the German experience", but don't worry about all-night partying or rowdiness...it closes around 9:00 p.m. so, even though we had a room right above it, the noise was never an issue. Rooms are well-soundproofed so getting a good night's sleep was never a problem either. I would give this place more stars if possible, primary due to the outstanding staff and service provided during our stay. This will definitely be our "go-to" place whenever we are in Berlin.
Ocak (January) was a very pleasant surprise for our 4 days stay in Berlin. My wife’s criteria for choosing it was the bath tube and the private parking. And as we arrived we realized that was a wonderful choice. The rooms are spacious, queen size bed comfortable (much appreciated the extra pillows), more than decent wardrobe, a small kitchenette that we didn’t use, cozy living area and a generous bathroom with a pretty big bath tube. Everything clean & tide. Also a safe is available for your valuables. Parking place was the other surprise. As we were traveling all the way to Finland, our car was loaded with luggages. And Ocak has a perfect safe place in the i underground parking in which the access is done by elevator (the whole process takes about 4-5 minutes). The elegant restaurant was the perfect place for the variated breakfast (delicious and fresh). U fortunately it was not opened for dinner, and same for the bar (that had a good selection of drinks) because of the Covid situation. In less that a km you will find restaurants, a shopping mall and also a train and underground train station which makes the access to the touristic attractions (plenty) l very easy. We were delighted to find out that the hotel is owned by a turkish living in Berlin (and you can see in this in the attentions for details, architecture and guest oriented attitude) and that the employees - extremely helpful, kind & friendly are also turkish (delighted as Turkey is our souls home country, and if Covid kept us away from it, Ocak did a great job to makes us feel a little bit like being there). If there is something more that I would like from this hotel, that would be a balcony (as a smoker) and a minibar. But this won’t keep us away from returning here very soon and to highly recommend this wonderful location. Thank you Ocak for existing and for making us feel like home!
So here's a property that aspires to be a JW (ha!). Management should first spend time at one to know what a JW is like. Despite a prominent Bonvoy Elite sign, there's a single (one lone) agent checking everyone in, and there were 5-6 groups around 2pm on Fri 3/25. When I simply asked to be checked in quickly (up since 5am), the agent said she's also up at 5pm, she's also tired, and she has to work all by herself (the constant talk back). To make up for it, said agent did upgrade me to a suite when one became available 2 days later. I chalked it up an overworked staff who tried her best. I was offered a small meal at the Bar each evening (they didn't have an M Lounge). Each and every night, this would be a long drawn out 2-3 hour out affair. The Bar is sometimes busy (mostly bar/drinking patrons) but even on an evening when I am clearly the only person ordering food, it would take 90-120 minutes for it to be delivered. I should add that it's a daily menu and the kitchen simply needs to warm and plate it! On one occasion I had to ask for my food to be delivered to my room because I had 10 mins to eat before a late conference call (with Australia). On my last evening, I finally spoke with the Bar staff only to be met with more excuses and talk back (this seem to be a recurring attitude here). The older lady is particularly good at it, "can't you see we are busy...." I haven't said anything on the first few nights because they do have an outstanding staff (Samantha) who truly exemplifies a JW. I had asked to speak to a manager (they promised me one will contact me) and I am still waiting. Now, I can see why they don't want to speak to guests. I've since checked out and my subsequent stays at other Marriotts have already been posted to my Bonvoy. I am still waiting for this "JW" Berlin to post my stay (despite an email reminder) and for a manager to contact me! Truly, I wish this JW the best of British luck!
The location is good, it is very convenient to go to various attractions, and you can walk or take public transportation. Shopping around is very convenient. Reception front desk and doorman service are very good and very polite. The hotel's decoration style is more ancient, and it doesn't matter if it is different from person to person. It is difficult to comment. What the individual doesn't like is the breakfast mode provided by the hotel. The buffet style on the table is only a small variety of bread, butter, cheese, sliced meat, a little fruit, a little juice and so on. Any omelet or egg, or sausage, or hot vegetables, must be ordered in a variety of language menus provided by a single door. Although the speed of serving after ordering is OK, the taste is average and even disappointing. The taste of the drink is average. The overall feeling of the hotel's breakfast quality is not worth the price it sells. In particular, if you are accustomed to eating a self-service rich breakfast, you may not be able to adapt to this breakfast mode.
This place is fine, but not great. You can certainly do better, but I also wouldn't advise against it. I personally would stay somewhere else next time. Pros: Good location, lots of good food and drink in the area. Good transit connections. Clean Reasonably priced Good use of space, some clever designs for the kitchen area. Nespresso machine and water boiler are provided, but you have to provide your own capsules, which are available at reception, though probalby cheaper to just buy on your own. Cons: Ironically, we chose this place because having AC was important to us, knowing that it can get quite hot in the summer. However, it was barely functional. The reception never responded regarding the issue. We mostly slept with the windows open, which leads to the next con. The street is extremely loud. Constant sirens. Lots of traffic. There is also a hostel across the street with loud people outside well into the night. The couch was uncomfortable as well as the pull out bed. The bed was pretty comfortable but something about the mattress protector felt not very breathable, so that was uncomfortable for temperature regulation. The rug did not add anything to the room and it also didn't fit the space so was folded up along the wall. I would have preferred it to not be there. There were no bowls in the cabinet. We asked reception for some, but they never gave us any. There were also no clear instructions about who is responsible for cleaning dishes. No sponges, dish soap, dishwasher soap, etc. Housekeeping did load the dishwasher on the days that they serviced, but we didn't have our room serviced every day. If you are working normal hours, that interferes with the hours that housekeeping will service the room, so you have to plan to leave for some time, but it is unpredictable. The laundry room was kind of disgusting. It smelled strongly of mildew and there is only one washing machine. It takes forever as well, assuming the machines are even available. Waschsalon down the street was a much better experience. Reception was not particularly friendly or helpful. Every interaction I had was disappointing in some way. No table/desk for eating/working.
I am a guest of your's. I am very happy here. I sing highly of your service.
First of all, the hotel is so beautiful. It looks like a garden. I enjoy it.
Then, foods are delicious and some of them are amazing. Most important reason
is that the bed is so big and soft that I don't want to get up every morning.
It's wonderful here. I can't believe it that I must leave. I want to live here
again if I come to this city again.Thank you.Sincerely yours a guest.
The hotel booking was made in advance as it was the close to the conference venue. However, it was not a convenient walking distance. There is no parking at the hotel and all luggage has to be carried from the public parking lot opposite to the hotel. Here the parking lots are extremely narrow making it difficult to unload luggage. No assistance is offered by the hotel staff to unload the luggage despite three staff being present at the day of check in. The hotel does not have an in-house laundry service contrary to what is advertised on the website. The hotel rates provided were not competitive to conference delegates as booked by HRS. The hotel lifts are rundown and shabby. The carpets and rooms and curtains and toilets are unclean and unpleasant. For two days I had to complain of foul odour in the corridor and lifts. This after a tiring day at the conference was unpleasant. Some of the nice things about the hotel are the proximity to the CityCube for the conference. The staff at the kiosk in the hotel are friendly and serve a few hot snacks and drinks. The breakfast on level 8 is served well and the view is pleasant. Overall I had to check out a day earlier as the hotel staff were unable to resolve the foul odour issue. I was offered free breakfast, however, I refused the same as inadequate and inappropriate redressal of the issue. No suggestion was made to offer a change of rooms till the matter was resolved. This was most inappropriate to force a guest to stay for two days without adequate amenities. I hope that the management can deal with this issue appropriately. Betlin as a conference host needs to upgrade standards of respect to guest delegates.
We bought the holiday through the Wowcher mystery holiday. On arrival we was given a room which had 2 single beds even though we had specifically booked a double room. We spoke to the receptionist who advised us there was no double beds in the entire hotel, which was a lie. I found out once we were home from a friend who recently stayed there that the hotel does have double beds, so for 3 nights we had to sleep on pushed together single beds and falling down the middle. The room was really warm with no air con, so we had to have the window open majority of the time but it was so noisy due to the main road being outside the hotel, plus the sirens of ambulances going to and from the hospital next door! We was on the 11th floor and the window opened fully with no safety latch, which is a big safety hazard, especially if you have children with you. The hotel was quite far from the centre of Berlin, however there is a tram stop a 2 minute walk from the hotel with trams every 5 mins. It’s about a 30/40 min tram ride to the centre. There is a bar downstairs which had a selection of drinks which was open till about 10pm/11pm. Overall very very basic and disappointed that we was blatantly lied to, as that could have made our stay that bit better.
We booked two Deluxe Studios four our family of 4 + dog. Comfortable, clean and spacious rooms. And an added plus of having kitchenettes so we could eat-in if we chose to. Hotel is in a great Mitte location across the street from Tram and around the corner from U-Bahn. Great area of town to walk around. Plenty to see and do and plenty of nightlife and great cafes at your doorstep and all-around. Hotel staff is very attentive and helpful. Only downside, rooms appear to all be on the street side, so there is street noise into the night most nights. We were so exhausted from our daily adventures it really did not bother us too much, but can see how some light sleepers might find it a problem. Would most certainly recommend and will certainly consider next time we travel to Berlin.
Maps.me map is wrong, Google maps are correct. Located on the west side of the main street. It is a little less than 10 minutes on foot from Alexanderplatz. 1 S-Bahn from SXF Airport. Dormitory for 4 people Shower toilet Ensuite. There is a mini locker. There is a locker that can be locked under the bed. Wifi is connected even in the room. The room and the toilet are beautiful. There is also a light outlet and storage at the bedside. If it's hot, fans can borrow a deposit of 20 euros at the front desk. There is a washing machine in the basement. 3 euros for washing dryer 3 euros. Cospa is wonderful in Berlin where the accommodation fee is high.
Because we are two girls to go to Berlin to play, so it is quite important to stay safe. The location of this home is very good, there are subways, supermarkets, commercial streets, and Chinese restaurants (the reviews are quite high, but I did not eat). It can be considered as a quiet place. The hotel is quiet near the hotel. It will go back around 11:00 in the middle of the night. There will be no strange people wandering around. But after a five-minute ten minute walk to the commercial street, curry36 also has a branch there. The hotel looks like it will be after 3 pm, but you can leave your luggage in advance. A credit card guarantee is required before check-in, and if not, a debit card is also available. The English at the front desk is also good. (In addition, the iced peach steam in the lobby is very good) I live like a suite, 59 flat. Is the entrance to the living room? There is a sofa TV or something, going inside is a bed, a wall behind the bed is a table, you can make tea or coffee. The wardrobe is also over there. Overall it feels quite big, there are two bathrooms, the shower and the bathtub are separated in the bathroom. (The only downside is that the bath water is easy to overflow, and the bathroom is a wooden floor. It takes a long time to step on it. It feels a bit uneven.) Breakfast did not eat, so I don't know, the overall is a good hotel, not expensive, the service is not bad.
Had a great two night stay. The beds were very comfortable. Had a lovely nights sleep. My travelling companion said it’s the best bed she has slept in. The pool was great. I couldn’t bring myself to go in the sauna as I didn’t want to remove my swimwear - but the facilities looked nice. Breakfast was excellent. Lots of choice for me, a vegetarian, and my meat eating friend. Location was fantastic - the Metro is outside and the zoo station a short walk away. Staff were overall very helpful. The reason I couldn’t bring myself to give it a 5 star review is that the room we stayed in could do with a little bit of updating. It’s certainly due a refurb to bring it into this century.
Stayed in a Junior Suite. Room was large and extremely clean. Two large doors to let lots of air in. Only thing that disappointed me was it says its a room with a balcony however there is no actual outside space, the doors open and there is a bar directly at the doors and only one chair in the room so no way for us both to sit there. Bed was so comfortable and great pillows! The blue nightlight option was beautiful. Bathroom was fab! Shower was amazing, didn't want to get out!! Floor in the bathroom is heated. Wi-fi is decent but keeps signing you out so don't lose the piece of paper with your codes on it. Cleaners were fantastic, changed our towels & bed daily and fresh glasses & cups. Ate one night in the restaurant on the rooftop and the food was beautiful. Then sat on the rooftop lounge outside with a drink and the view and lights were beautiful. Location is great... Two underground stations both within a 2 minute walk. I would recommend to get a welcome card if travelling a lot as it covers underground, trains and busses. We would have spent 3 times the amount we paid for the 4 day card and also covers from airport if you buy zones a,b&c Staff were very friendly throughout our stay. Would have given 5 stars if I had of known in advance there was no actual balcony but was one of the main reasons I booked as my partner doesn't drink and our plan was to sit out there at night where I could enjoy a few glasses and he doesn't have to be in a bar. But overall had a lovely stay. My pictures don't do the room justice but just to give an idea.
I stayed here for 2 nights, last week, and had a very good time. Perfectly located, just a few minutes walk from The Zoological Gardens train station, it is ideally located for getting around the city. When I arrived at reception, the man asked me how my trip to Berlin had gone, and I explained that Ryanair made it a difficult trip, with their usual arrogant attitude, and I also missed a connecting flight in Milan. As my journey had not been good, the guy on reception immediately upgraded me, free of charge, just because I had a bad day. That is the sort of customer service that makes your day better. (Ryanair could take some tips form this guy!) The room I got was a double, which was clean and tidy, and the bathroom was also very clean. I did not have breakfast, and my only other interaction with the staff was on check out but based on the excellent staff, and a very nice room, I would happily stay here again.
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Adlon Kempinski for 2 nights last weekend. We are lucky enough to often stay at 5 star hotels so it takes a lot to really impress us. I can honestly say that we both thought this was one of our favourite hotels ever. It goes without saying that it is a beautiful, iconic property in a fantastic location. However, the staff were just incredible. Every single person we dealt with was friendly, helpful and professional and genuinely seemed to care about our stay / comfort / query. It really was an absolute delight. We had a relatively ordinary room so I know it was not that they thought we were "important" guests. We spoke to the lady cleaning our room, the bar staff in the lobby bar, the breakfast staff, the front desk, room service on the phone, the concierge and the pianist in the lobby bar. I asked Paul at the concierge desk about a local Italian restaurant that I had seen but could not remember the name. He knew immediately and asked if we were going to dinner there. We said yes and he asked if we wanted him to book it for us. Within about 2 minutes, we had our reservation. Nothing was too much trouble. Our bedroom was spacious and luxurious as you would expect. The breakfast was probably the best we have ever had for quality and choice - open until noon which is great because you don't have to get up too early and you can treat it like brunch. No one chased you out near the end of the breakfast time - it was all very relaxed. The lobby bar was sumptuous with a fountain in the middle and the bar / waiting staff so attentive. Alexander Frey the pianist is also a world renown conductor and organist. When I phoned to see if we could have a late check-out, I was told that the room was reserved. I said, don't worry then and the man on the phone said, it's my job to worry, let me see what I can do and he then organised a later check out for us. Literally everyone who works there is at the top of their game. And I know that takes a lot for such a big hotel. All I can say is that whilst their staff training must be good and their staff selection process rigorous, this sort of service comes from the individuals themselves. Add that to such a historic and lovely hotel and you've got more than 5 stars. Thank you to each and every member of staff who we dealt with at the Adlon Kempinski - you made our trip so special and if we are ever in Berlin, we will only stay with you!
I’ve stayed at this hotel many times over the years for business and leisure and really love it. It always leaves me with big smile on my face and I feel well prepared to face the day ahead. I love the quirky furniture, the vibe of the place, the good size of the rooms and the central Mitte location. I also love all the little extras like the special toiletries, the free bottle of water etc. Huge windows let in plenty of natural light. A shower which is so big it’s almost a room in its own right. There’s a slight John F Kennedy theme but it’s a tip of the hat (such as the throne-like armchairs in each room) rather than full on memorabilia. The only unusual thing this time was a small kitchenette in our room. Yes, there was a kettle for making a tea or coffee which was appreciated but why does one need a stove top and sink when there are no other pots, pans, cutlery etc? Strange but not disconcerting. Although I have had breakfast at the hotel when I was on expenses, we find €22 a head too much so prefer to head to one of the multitude of cafes in the area for breakfast. Foot creme! Just what my poor feet needed after three weeks of travel. And now the hotel is helping the bees out too. We passed on room cleaning in lieu of a donation to a bee protection agency. Bless you, John F! I’ll be back!
Just leaving here as one writes this. Stayed 7-9 march 4 of us. One good thing is the GM and relations manager who i was in contact with prior to staying and as was charged in € and not £ bank charged me but the GM offerrd us free breakfast to compensate this much appreciated although no one checks you in to breakfast so anyone can eat without having to pay. Check in staff were VERY ignorant and rude especially the ladies on check in at 11am on sat 7th shockingly rude and not good customer service at all. Rooms ok water comes through and stinks like sewage not good. Rooms are more like a ibis budget and no tea / coffee facilities which isnt good. The black guy in the evening on sunday julian I believe his name was VERY rude and near on shouted at me and my friend who had separate booking to us , he had email from customer relations manager stating he could have free complimentary drink for his stay AND julians basically said its not valid and he doesn’t care who email from even if was from a high management and shouted at us to speak them not him he is disgustingly rude and said something in german to us and he abd his colleague laughed so cleary wasn’t something nice. Location is good though and some cafe restaurant and bars etc nearby and a lidl 2min walk away. I may stay again if new staff are employed ill be writing to accor to complain may stay at NOVOTEL next time
A great hotel in a central location. The breakfast was great, although the atmosphere was pretty noisy taking into account the huge number of people staying at the hotel. The only disadvantage is that for parking I was not able simply to drive into the parking garage, although it says that no prior reservation is needed, so I suppose I had to call the hotel in advance and tell them I'm coming with a car. So I would advise Ctrip to update this part of the information. Nevertheless, if you want to pay 10€ instead of the 22€ a day for parking in the hotel's parking garage, you can consider the parking area at Gleisdreieck, which is around 5 minutes on foot from the hotel.
I wrote a review at the airport yesterday giving the Das Stue 5 stars for an amazing stay I have removed it today and am writing this one instead When I came to pay my bill on Tuesday night prior to checking out on Wednesday I commented to the young duty manager behind the desk (who was pretty dismissive and rude at the time) that I was surprised they had earmarked so much money over the 4 night stay They had earmarked a total of £5500 which was more than the total rate - I accept they then add on money for guests spend (turned out this is an additional 100 euros per guest per night which is more than Ive experienced anywhere else in the world) The manager was quite rude and said - dont worry about it, we will use this earmarked money to settle the bill The final bill was £4600 I get home and get a call from my bank to tell me I am hugely overdrawn in my chequing account When we look into it - the hotel charged me the full amount as a new debit - they did not use the earmarked funds (which my bank had already approved), howver, they then they had not cancelled the earmarked payment. This means my bank has paid out £4600 and allocated another £5500 = OVER ELEVEN THOUSAND IN TOTAL I called the hotel who said they will get their credit card payment company Concardis to cancel the earmarked amount - they have done this, but it will now take up to 7 days for my bank to clear this off. WHY IF THE EARMARKED FUNDS HAD BEEN APPROVED DID THE HOTEL NOT USE THIS AS THEY SAID THEY WOULD?? I am now having to transfer money to cover my other commitments until this is sorted out. The hotel seem to be suggesting its my banks fault - it is not becuse they approved the earmarked funds, the hotel manager said that is what they would use and then they took another full payment I AM REALLY REALLY ANNOYED There is little point offering such a relaxed and charming stay and then ruin it with this appalling experience - I suggest you avoid or pay in advance (which I offered) or use a Credit card (which I dont generally use) OR stay somewhere else where they do pre-authorise such huge amounts
The service staff is very enthusiastic. Very clean. The hotel room is small but already prepared. The soundproofing is too bad, the movements in the hallway are clear and clear, and the walls of other rooms will be vibrated. I was scared at night. The mattress didn't seem to breathe, and it was very hot to sleep on, and didn't sleep well at night. Air conditioning is either too cold or too hot to master. I felt that the price was good before I checked in, but I really didn't rest well.
We spent 3 days at Gorki last week, slightly early Valentine’s trip. We love it as it’s just easy here, spacious apartment, clean, modern, great location and in one of the best cities in world! We cooked one day and ate out the rest of the time. With so many bars and restaurants within walking distance, you are spoilt for choice! Regarding the review below, not sure what that’s about, we’ve never had any issues, hence our third visit and not our last. Also, we just loaded the dishwasher ourself, we didn’t need the room attendant to do it! Love the personal service too, when we booked our visit, Constance messaged me the list of rooms to choose from, from the category we had booked. This was great as each apartment is different, no 2 are exactly the same. We are working our away across the different categories :) We asked for a late check out and were told it was €50, we declined that, but we were able to stay in the room until 1pm. We’ll be back in the summer, see you then!
Although the hotel is not in the city centre, the 100-way bus at the door is almost accessible to all the popular attractions - the Parliament, the Brandenburg Gate, the Museum Island and many more. And there is a supermarket 200 meters away from the hotel, it is very convenient to buy things (we just go to the supermarket to buy things for breakfast, because the German hotel's breakfast is really no attraction). There is also a Vietnamese restaurant and a Chinese restaurant within 300 meters nearby. If you are tired of Western food, you can get a sip. The hotel lobby also has its own cafe and light meals (this is rare in this 3-4 star hotel in Germany). There is a coffee machine and a few free capsules in the room, which is quite good. Also very clean and tidy
This was our third attempt at your trip to Berlin due to covid cancellations. Sandra, the hotel manager, was so helpful when it came to re-arranging our booking multiple times and always emailed me back really quickly. I really appreciate that she was willing to give me a voucher to use (which she later extended) for a later date when our flights were cancelled and I had no idea when I could re-book. As soon as my boyfriend and I entered the hotel a member of staff greeted us, and the two women on reception were also really warm and friendly. The hotel itself is perfect. The reception area and bar/restaurant area are very grand, but not pretentious. We had a few drinks at the bar over two of the evenings which was great. I had an excellent German white wine and the service was brilliant. The room was large, bed really comfortable, bathroom was lovely. Location was perfect - really close to U and S-Bahn so we could easily travel all over the city. Can't recommend this hotel or Berlin enough. Thank you for having us :)
Just back from a five day trip to Berlin staying at Novum Gates Hotel. We flew into Tiegel Airport from Manchester and the journey from airport was really quick and easy. Board the X9 bus outside terminal building B and for this hotel get off at Ernst Reuter Platz, you know when you are there as the audio on bus tells you, and the hotel is just a few hundred yards away. Hotel is sited about ten minutes walk from Zooglischer Garten railway station so this enables you to move around the city with ease. There is also a subway station around the corner from the hotel, Ernst Reuter Platz which is the U2 line and day tickets on here allow you to use all public transport although you need to check the zones and be sure to validate the ticket on platform before the first journey. The hotel is good value for money and we had room 027 in the block D which overlooked the courtyard. The hotel is a strange layout with a square shape around a central courtyard. Be aware that that is a city tax to pay upon arrival although this only came to 12 euros for our stay. Room was huge and very clean. Bathroom was great with amazing shower and again really clean and modern. On the downside for the room, there is only news channel available in English amongst over 40 channels so this is a bit of a let down when you get back from a day out. Bed was very comfortable however would benefit from having more than 1 pillow each and definitely needs proper double duvet not 2 single ones on a double bed as the rooms can get a little chilly at night. Breakfast was really good, staff very polite and served you a thermal jug of coffee to your table whilst you help yourself to juice, fruit, yoghurt and cereals with a wide choice. There was plenty of cold meat, cheese and salad if that is your thing for breakfast, but also warm option of scrambled eggs and sausages each day too. The usual array of breads and croissants accompany the rest and there is plenty to ensure you can fuel up for the day. Times served are from 6:30 to 10:30, great for days you want a lie in and also for early flights home. We would recommend buying a 2 day bus tour ticket from the tour buses which are easy to spot and depart from the bus station at the zoo. We used the first day to stay on the bus, a 2 hour round trip and then decided on the places to visit next day. I would recommend a visit intothe Reichstag although you will need to boom this advance, it was simple to do before we left UK and you will need to take passport on the day but the history and the view are worth the effort. My final recommendation would be the huge department store Ka Da We, the sixth floor has a food floor with bars cafes and aces to eat, I have to say the burger there was amazing and would recommend to all. Visit Berlin with an open mind and experience the history and people and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
The hotel is generally better, close to the bustling area of West Berlin, and convenient for shopping. Just pay attention to Ctrip's overseas precision killing is very stimulating. It is basically locked up for various price fluctuations, tax calculation, room reservation, etc. There are many traps for orders to be transferred to third-party suppliers. And the order complaint is more difficult, Ctrip overseas service is poor.
Pros: - warm welcome and farewell - friendly staff (each of them!) - clean rooms - conveniently located close to the railway station "Gesundbrunnen" - parking spaces available for a fee. Cons: - breakfast. The hotel charges you with € 10 for breakfast. The question is: What will you get for your money? Frankly speaking, it is disappointing! You get one bread roll, one slice of sausage, one slice of cheese, a mini-croissants, jam, a banana, a yogurt and orange juice. On my last day, the hotel reduced this offer and one of the two plates were replaced by the possibility to ask for cereals. It was not possible to get a second serving or make any changes according to your preferences. To avoid any misunderstanding: the quality was not poor but one bread roll for an adult is too less! In the surrounding area of the hotel are several cafés and bakeries located. To put you in the position to make your own judgement whether to order breakfast or not, please see the enclosed photos. Potential for improvement: - there is no garbage can in the hotel room (only a small one for sanitary products in the bathroom). It would not be only in the favor of the hotel guest but also in the one of the hotel staff if a garbage would be in hotel room to keep the room clean - in particular in the light that due to the Covid19-issue, the room will be cleaned up only on special request. Further information: - there is no safe in your room but lockers in the lobby area. - a few steps away from the hotel is the train station "Gesundbrunnen". At this station are long-distance trains (ICE), regional trains (Regional Express), suburban trains (S-Bahn) and the metro arriving and leaving. For example: it is a 4 minute ride with the Regional Express to Berlin main station and a 8 minutes ride with the metro "U8" to Alexanderplatz. - In front of the hotel are free public parking spaces. If you prefer a safe place to park your car, the hotel offers own parking spaces in the courtyard for € 15 per night. - In the neighborhood of the hotel are located several German (Lidl, Aldi, Rewe) and Turkish (eurogida) supermarkets and the shopping center "Gesundbrunnen".
An awesome hotel which is beyond five stars. Everything is OK! The only downside was that I forgot the souvenir bag I just bought on the table when I had meals in the lobby, and I went back to ask the waiters. They were impatient and replied that they didn't see it. When I wanted to ask more, they got a little impatient. It was a pity.
Wonderful trip - Wonderful stay in a lovely hotel. Great value, modern, fab location and it had everything we needed! The staff were mostly friendly and polite, check in was smooth and some staff were knowledgeable of the area and what was on offer nearby. Extras would have been nice such as biscuits and tea
