Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frau K zentrales Mittelklassehotel für Wochenendbesuch
Das Hotel ist für ein Wochenende in Berlin sehr gut geeignet, da es sehr zentral gelegen und im Vergleich zu gleichgelegenen Hotels günstig ist. In 10 Minuten fussläufig zum Potzdamer Platz weitere 10 Min. zum Brandenburger Tor. Das Frühstück ist ausreichend, es könnte aber mehr Obst angeboten werden. Unser Zimmer war relativ groß und auch nicht übermäßig laut obwohl zur Straße hin gelegen. Lediglich andere Hotelgäste, die mitten in der Nacht im Zimmer rumspringen, waren gut zu hören. Das Personal war sehr nett und für alle Fragen offen. Das Hotel ist insgesamt etwas überheizt und leider kein wlan auf dem Zimmern. Wir werden dieses Hotel bei Gelegenheit wieder besuchen.

Great hotel, fantastic location and even better service! My family and I (there were three of us) stayed at the hotel for 5nights last week. We were impressed with the location and servcie at the hotel. There was a small blip with the hosuekeeping service on the 2nd day but this was dealt with speedily and efficiently by hotel staff, two follow ups were also conducted. The room was snug but lovely, breakfast had a good variety which were quite surprised by. Staff were attentive and friendly also. The location of this hotel was great, literally a stone's throw from Potsdamer Platz and all of the iconic spots of the city. Anhaler Bahnolf station and a bus stop were both two minutes walk form the hotel. We'll definately be going back to Berlin and staying in this hotel again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rd11563 Good breakfast uncomfortable heat in room
We were 3 adults in a room that was so small you kept bumping in to each other. The sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable and you couldn't adjust the heat and the room was extremely warm. Breakfast was terrific. Internet only in the lobby and that was ok. Why can't they have free internet in your room? Have stayed at other Holiday Inn express and they could up the show!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ABKor No wi-fi in rooms, max room temp too cold, bathroom not clean on entry
The room heating, even at the highest settings, was too cold to sleep in (perhaps the comforter was a little too thin for the freezing cold temperature).
The toilet seems to not have been properly cleaned before my visit.
There was no wi-fi available in the room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amarok good location but...
hotel is in proximity to potzdamer platz and checkpoint charlie, however all main attractions are accessible by feet.
pillows are awful and very uncomfortable for sleeping. temperature in the room was too high in the evening and a little bit too cold in the morning. it is not a solution to leave conditioner on as it is noisy.
room is too small for 3 persons. actually there is no wardrobe but small shelves.
no wifi in the rooms, and sometimes no connection in the lobby.
there is not hot meals for breakfast except of hard boiled eggs but coffee was always good as well as variety of teas.
staff is friendly and helpful

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by briank9 Second review
My first review of the property was much better because I stayed only one night. This stay was for three days. First, I want to compliment the clerk named Dennis. He was great!! Very helpful with all my questions and gave great directions. He must have worked a 24 hour shift and he looked worn out. I watched him help several people with the same smile and professionalism as he had done many hours prior.
The breakfast the was very good. The room needed a bit more attention to cleaning. One thing I disliked was that the coffee pot was rusty inside and once the small packets of coffee was used, it was never replaced.
My biggest complaint was the I prepaid the hotel ( except for the last night) before I left the United States. When I left I was told that everything was paid but I wanted a receipt anyway. I found that the credit card I used had SEVERAL charges. It appears that the 19% tax is an additional fee and a couple hundred bucks!! WOW. what a shock when I saw my credit card statement and had to pay exchange rates on top of that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orit991 Comfortable bed and great service
We've spent 10 nights and everything was excellent.
Room is cozy and comfortable, nice and open view, isolated walls and out door, very clean.
Good breakfast but it's boring to eat exactly the same every morning.
Very good location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zilah Great staff,great location,
The hotel is located in good location. Close to bus station and underground station.
The staff at the reception was very kind and professional. Helped us with every question we had. The breakfast was right in compare to European breakfast. (We missed some fresh vegetables except cucumbers).
The room was spacious the mattress was very good to lie on but too narrow (140 cm is too small for couple). We were very surprised to find that there is no closet at the room. We stay a week and I need to live most of the clothes in the suitcases and it was very uncomfortable. When you publish the hotel you must mention this fact.
But after all we enjoy our vacation and the stay in this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BallymenaBoy Pre - Christmas visit
We spent 6 nights at this hotel, chosen mainly for its location and cost.
From check in to check out we were very happy with the service and comfort provided.
Very polite staff on reception, a real asset.
Enjoyed the included buffet breakfast very much.
Only minus was the lack of free Wi-Fi in the room, although this was known in advance and free Wi-Fi is available in the reception area.
Located an easy 10 min walk from Potsdamer Platz.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mopajois All yu need and good service
Rooms are fine, I had a standard room with one bed and another sofabed. TV size big enough especially for a hotel in that segment, lots of international channels. Tea and Coffee in room for free, nice.
Breakfast is always included by Express , no hot items apart from boiled eggs, but apart from that yu find a large selection of fresh fruits, cold cuts, sereals, marmelade, paystries, rols, croissants and other breads. Staff is very busy, hotel seem to rub high occupancy levels, but very friendly and helpful. Would def recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jules021065 Brilliant,happy, helpful staff . Clean tidy comfortable room
Excellent service . Lovely staff. Clean rooms . Ideally situated.
I have read previous reviews about this hotel and have no idea what one of the guests was moaning about . The lifts are perfect. The back rooms on the hotel are better than the front as they're less noisy if you want the window open at night . The breakfast is continental and plenty of choice . A truly lovely stay and a warm welcome to Berlin . A beautiful city and so friendly and not expensive like many capital cities I've stayed in . Thank you for a pleasant stay .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CjNY Solid Hotel but no Room WiFi in 2013-14
The hotel itself is in a reasonably good location either walking distance (10-15 mins) or a short bus trip from main area where the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag is located (there is a train stop nearby too which would aslo be an option). At Christmas time it is also walking distance to the Potsdamer Platz Christmas markets.
There is free WIFi in the lobby breakfast area but not in any of the rooms which is very backwards but you can cable hookup your laptop in the rooms (cable may or may not be present so you would need to bring it). This of course doesn't help smartphones and tablets.
Shower is great with pressure and heat control and soap access but there is no separate shampoo, conditioner or lotions which is not helpful as it can be very dry. Many of the floors outside the rooms smelled of cigarettes.
The breakfast was very good with a range of pastries, cold cuts, yoghurts, hard boiled egg, fruits, coffees, tea and juices and starts early so you can be up and about.
Ultimately it is a solid hotel but would be better if they fixed the smells in the halls, added bathroom amenities and put WiFi in the rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stroopwafel One of the better express holiday inn hotels, but no wifi!?
The staff are very professional but that doesn't make up for lack of WIFI in the room (and cable internet at 4 euros an hour, really?). Kind of a basic thing you expect to find in every hotel these days.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by C22hhh Comfortable bed with very small duvet
Single duvet was too small for an adult. It barely covered me and I have 34waist and 44chest.
The firm pillow was softer than a feather. Not firm at all!
Location, very good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IHLJ Very inconvenient internet usage
I am a Gold Elite member and it says on the website that I could be allowed to use internet for free in my hotel room but that socket was only for laptops - iPad couldn't be used in my room as there was no wireless internet available in any rooms. So after all day's sightseeing, I had to go to the hotel lobby standing somewhere to use the hotel internet as many people were sitting there without any vacant seat. This was extremely inconvenient for me. I felt I was treated with no any difference even though I am a Gold Elite member. I was extremely disappointed with this matter at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrspea Good experience for single lady
I stayed here by myself as my husband had to cancel at short notice.
The ladies on the front desk were very helpful at check-in and also in sorting out internet access for my tablet in the lobby.
Room was comfortable, the only thing I missed was a minibar - I had to queue for ages in the supermarket opposite for a bottle of water.
Breakfast was adequate - coffee was good!
I felt very safe walking from Potsdamer Platz area and the train station to the hotel at night
Would not hesitate to come back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aargee Functional Hotel near Potsdamer Platz
There is not much good or bad to say - room was functional - no fridge or safe in the room though. Bathroom small but ok.
Breakfast was Express style crowded in the morning - with little choice but nice bread and cold cuts - but no rice or noodles for our asian friends.
Location is near Potsdamer Platz which is a plus for me.
Parking is very expensive @ 19EUR/day - try to find a spot outside but don't get a ticket ;-)
