I was afraid of staying in this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but the hotel is great (and cheap!). I stayed in triple comfort room and the room was facing the street, but it didn't bother me (but it might disturb light sleepers). The room was clean, bed was nice and bathroom/WC was clean and modern. I also...

Everything I wanted for a short stay at a very affordable price: big and nicely decorated room, very quiet at night (my room was facing the hotel’s backyard, second floor), comfortable bed, fresh linen and extra pillows, wi-fi Internet, everything worked just fine in my room, reasonable breakfast. I am satisfied. Importantly, very nice and welcoming personnl. The hotel is...

Hotel is an good location to travel inside Berlin’s central areas as well as for connecting to Tegel and Shonefeld airport, and in general it is a good value for the money. Extra large room, good bath room and healthy breakfast, keeping in mind the really budget room rate we paid. Even though the hotel is situated in central Berlin...

I definitely do not recommend this hotel, there are better options around. The internet is NOT working, bad mattress and pillows worse. Terrible smell of dust. And the elevator is horrible and outdated.

On arrival in the room the first thing me and my partner noticed was the distinct smell of dust. Bearing in mind that Germany is not an exotic country, a proper duvet would have been nice rather than 2 single padded bed sheets. On top of this, the pillows are awful, 2 bags of wool where when laid upon you...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife on a short trip to Berlin. Chose the hotel from reviews on Tripadvisor. We got a room with separate beds/rooms(door between) when we checked in, but the staff managed to move us to a room with double bed on my request. The hotel is a family run business, and everybody was very...

From the very moment we came to Ela hotel we felt like in a family. From the attentive woman receptionist to a cosy and comfortable room – nothing was bothering us. The budget hotel made our Berlin trip more enjoyable and we look forward to coming back here!

We booked this hotel on basis of what the hotel website described and showed. In general the hotel was to our point of view below average. As we had a different impression on what we were expecting to get (using the website pictures as reference), our trip started with a huge disappointment. The pictures taken must have been some time...

one of the worst places i have stayed in during all my travels. the rooms are spacious, but with very old and dusty furniture and curtains that only cover half of the windows when completely closed. lights in the hallways turn off automatically after a minute or so, which is very inconvenient if you have to go to your external...

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
