“Clean rooms, fresh and satisfying breakfast, quite good location...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012 via mobile

we stayed here as a group, the room was ok for me since I stayed alone but couples found their rooms small. Personnel was good and caring, the rooms cleaned and prepared daily. Breakfasts were brilliant. Location is good if you will use for leisure. Internet connection is 5€/day (you have to pay daily) and not very strong signal coverage everywhere. I have already paid a lot of money for room and it is shame to request another 5€ daily, that is why I gave 3 for pricing. But totally I satisfied my stay anyway.

I stayed here for 2 days recently. Pretty basic hotel with good service, particular for priority club gold member. The hotel is not far from Berlin Zoo and the zoo station(10 minutes walk). Easy to catch S Bahn 7 to Potsdam. Heaps of restaurant around, also have a discount supermarket nearby. check in and check out was easy. late check out offered for gold member. Breakfast and wifi was included. Breakfast was basic but with some good quality food. Go earlier you will have quiet time with less guests around. Wifi is seriously slow, I was at level 8, hardly can access anything, you can only check some emails. No wonder it is free, I would not pay for this slow wifi service. Facilities are up to date. bathroom is modern and clean, bed is a bit hard but comfortable. all in all it is a good basic hotel in berlin west.

Room Tip: higher floor

This hotel is an excellent example of the no-frills "Holiday Inn Express" style hotel. Situated a five minute walk from the Berlin Zoo, and a small step further to the major U- and S-Bahn station at Zoologischer Garten. It is also close to the shops along the Ku'damm and not far from the relaxing greenery of the Tiergarten. It is also surrounded by a very wide range of restaurants of all styles within walking distance.

My room was neat and clean, with enough room to work at the desk and a reliable WiFi connection for €5 per day (if a little slow at times). I stayed in a south facing room during a heat wave and it did get a bit warm in the room, although there is air conditioning and opening the window during the day worked well. The bathroom is small - a shower only, no bath, although this is typical for Holiday Inn Express and should come as no surprise.

There is a good buffet breakfast from 06:30 in an airy room on the ground floor - and space to eat outside on warm days. "Continental style" - cereals, cold meats & cheese, yoghurts, bread, pastries and jam - plus plenty of coffee & tea. This was included in my room rate and it was good value.

This hotel works well if you are visiting the western part of Berlin (I had meetings at DIN, which is only 300 metres down the road), but it works as a good base for the tourist parts of the city too - I walked down to the centre and the Bundestag building via Tiergarten, which is excellent on a warm summer's day. The nearby major station at Zoologischer Garten means you can get almost anywhere in Berlin pretty quickly.

I travelled via Tegel airport - the X9 bus runs direct between the airport and the Zoo station for €2.30, which is pretty good value.

Room Tip: Most rooms are the standard Holiday Inn Express pattern - the main difference is the floor level - t...

Recently stayed at this hotel and had a good stay too.The location is good,near the zoo and Kudamm where there is plenty of choice for restaurants and bars.We have been to Berlin 4 times now and one of the things we had not done was to go on the 100 bus which is just up the road.There is also a very good supermarket up near the bus stop.
Tho hotel itself was pretty much what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express.The rooms though not large are certainly adequate but why oh why is there never enough hanging or storage space for clothes in German Hotels? The beds we both found were a little to hard but not as bad as some of theHotels that i have been too.Tea and Coffee in the rooms was a bonus and the ac worked well. Shower was good with good pressure and the room seemed pretty clean overall.
Breakfast was enjoyable.It was always very busy down there in the morning but we never had trouble finding a place to sit and one day we sat outside where there are 3 or 4 tables.Usual type breakfast,cereals,cold meats and cheeses.
Overall i would say this was a very good hotel but free wifi would be nice as opposed to paying 5 euros a day for it! Also did find reception to be a little slow and to me it looked as if they were understaffed.Not having a room safe meant we had to use the safe via reception,this always meant having to queue and wait as things were painfully slow,though on the final day there appeared to be somebody more senior on at the front desk and as soon as she saw us waiting she was quick to get help!
Having said that this did not detract from our view that this was a good hotel for the price and would consider again if on a budget.

Room Tip: Not sure if the room at front would be noisy,ask for a room at the back.

My wife and I stayed here two nights. The hotel was a short distance from Berlin Tegel airport. The rooms are clean and comfortable and a good size. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful with suggestions and directions. The 100 bus stop is across the street and it is very convenient for all the major attractions including the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Potsdam Plaza. The downtown area is easily accessible and well worth visiting. There are many restaurants, shops, and sights to see within walking distances from stops along the route. The metro station is about a ten minute walk which passes a shopping centre and the Berlin Zoo. The hotel has a good breakfast buffet which was evidenced by the numbers of guests each morning. In fact there are signs in the elevators using traffic light colors to tell people the best time to have breakfast: Green light is between 7-8, Amber 8-9 and Red from 9-10:30. The hotel is well situated with many restaurants within a five minute walk including a Vietnamese restaurant directly across the street which we enjoyed so much the first night, we went back the second.

Room Tip: Our room faced the rear of the hotel and the patio for breakfast. Although there is not a lot of tra...
