Altstadt Spandau
Ranked #578 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed 3 January 2016

Like every year and hotel on new years eve, the hotel was overpriced. The first guy at reception was very helpful and explained lots of details around Berlin, so we thought everything would be fine. He also told us that there would be a night-service at reception (a sign says its 24/7), but it may happen that the night shift worker may be out for "a few minutes", so I dropped the key at reception (we didn't know if we come back together).

The disaster starts here. It ended up that we had to wait 20 Minutes outside in the cold, the guy from night shift left his phone number inside the hotel and locked the door, what is really helpful in our case. Without the help of another guest we would have waited longer.

At the morning there was no hot water for shower, a nice experience after such a cold night. Breakfast was quite good, lots of things to choose from and of good quality and taste. Unfortunately all the doors were open to outside for cleaning so we froze while having a breakfast.

The beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom was the opposite. The whole place smelled a bit, there was no possibility to lock the door when on toilet because the key was missing.

I want to be honest, it's hostel not a hotel and so I didn't expect much.
WiFi only working in the reception
Room was nice enough but there was a terrible mouldy smell
The bathroom had no soap, shower gel, body lotion...nothing
Towels and hairdryer were provided and the water pressure is good
The room was warm and the TV was fine
Breakfast was ok, fresh rolls, boiled eggs, ham, cheese, salami, cucumber, tomato, juice, tea and coffee
For one night stray is acceptable but I would not recommend to stay any longer. Still can't get the smell of the room off my clothes, terrible.

This hotel was a very unpleasant experience. On our trip through Europe this summer we stayed at The Alstad Spandau in Berlin. The rom was not at all what we expected when looking at the hotels pictures. The room was old and smelly, the windows were rotten, the tiles in the hallway was loose, the bathroom was 30 yrs. old. The bedside tables were home-made boxes. The tv did not work. Just an awful experiece....the man at the front desk just looked at me when I told him this was not what we expected. The only positive thing in the hotel was the breakfast! They may have newer and better rooms, but in our case this hotel beyond disappointing
