Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Roadsterlane Unfriendly reception
Unfriendly greeting on arrival. Not recognised as a Platinum Ambassador. No vouchers for drinks etc. or extra points. No upgrade. No nothing, not even a mention. Had to fill out all the forms, that is usually ready at check in. Uncomfortable Twin beds instead of Double bed.
Although this hotel is tucked a little away from central Berlin, it is relatively easy to get to and from, also without a car.
Tram "M6" just 2 minutes walk away, takes you directly to a S Train Station, that circumnavigate Berlin.
Having only read comments from other guests after our visit, I note, that our experience is not a one of experience, but an indication, that staff (perhaps one single person only) at the reception needs a course in Hotel Management.
My wife actually insist, this was her worst hotel experience ever. I am however a little more forgiving.

Although I had reserved a double bed room, it had twin beds. It seems most of the rooms are twins rather than doubles. After my fussing, staff made arrangements with mgr., and we shifted to a double later. Phone was not plugged into the wall, but I figured it out and fixed it. The double bed room lacked a coffee maker, but had microwave, so we made do. New Orleans restaurant had limited menu and poor service - even when almost empty. The other restaurant was good with very good service.
Very convenient location with easy access to public transport. Several staff were extraordinarily helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Daffy1963 Leider nicht wieder
Wurde begrüßt mit dem Wort "Ja?".
Begrüßung als Premiummitglied -Fehlanzeige.
Aussicht aus dem Fenster: nicht vorhanden, da im 2. Stock
Kein Gutschein oder Getränkegutschein
Duschgel und Shampoo mussten an der Rezeption geholt werden
Nur 1 Aufzug funktionierte
Insgesamt: eins der schlechtesten Holiday Inns, das ich erlebt habe.
Tut mir sehr leid, es zu sagen: das Personal ist zum großen Teil sehr unfreundlich und die Sauberkeit im Zimmer ließ zu wünschen übrig

I was not recognised as a Platinum member. I was not sure I got upgraded room or not. Did not mentioned the Platinum benefits, finally I got free internet. One good remark: fruit basket in my room upon arrival.
rooms are old, needed to renovate. Dirty carpet with a lot of dark spots in the room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jamesvw Nice staff, uncomfortable room
I admittedly didn't do due diligence in looking at the location, but this hotel was a pain to get to and from without a car in Berlin. If it was for business, I am sure it is a good locale, but in order especially to get to tourist sites on the west side of the city, it was really a trek. But eventually I got the hang of it. What was most problematic was sharing two twin beds with a partner, pushing these together was the best solution staff could come up with - which they had me do for myself anyways - and so there was a valley that widened in the middle of the night. As a tall guy, it really isn't acceptable to have a twin bed any more, not to mention sharing it with someone else.
All of this being said, I did appreciate all the help in navigating the city that the staff gave to us. They were caring and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cometdad Good location and very good price
We stayed in this hotel for two nights. Room was clean and comfortable. The noise level was very low (fifth floor). The location is very convenient - close to the trams and about 10 min away from the center of the city on the tram. We had a very pleasant experince.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FieldHockey21 Nice rooms and great design
The rooms are very nice, the beds comfortable and the interior design fresh and modern. We liked it a lot. The service at the reception is slow - same applies to the elevators. But we also liked the view overlooking the vast eastern part of the city. And we will return with pleasure.

Great service. Our flight from the states arrived at 8am, so by the time we made it to the HI lobby, many people were still checking out from the night prior. However, the staff accommodated my family with one of the two rooms. Great cupcakes greeted us when we arrived back from touring at 6pm. Rooms were adjacent but not connected. As a Platinum member, many HI's will provide breakfast, but not here. We had 6 of us, and paid $50US for the 3 morning meals per person. Made it a bitter sweet Reward Points stay, but we really loved that this hotel was a sponsor for the 6 Day bike race at the nearby Velodrome. The shuttle service to and from the arena made us feel like rock stars! It's not a Crowne Plaza, but our stay was very enjoyable at the Berlln East HI. I recommend and will stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by robsen pretty close to perfection
I came to the Holiday Inn Berlin City East - Landsberger Allee on a leisure trip. Although I showed my Priority Club Gold membership card, the lady reception didn't hand out a welcome letter. The check-in was done quickly and efficient. When I asked for the WiFi login, I was told that it is free for my membership level and I was given the credentials. The way to the elevators to the guest room s could be marked better because the eleveators in the lobby just lead to meeting rooms. The room itself was spacious and clean. Unfortunately, the receptionist didn't ask for the bed preference, so I had a twin beds room instead of a king or queen size bed. The breakfast room was very nice, the buffet offered a large variety and the staff was keen to satisfy the customers wishes.
