This hotel is very basic for the price but served our needs. Room was basic white with green bunk bed/ double bed below. No hair dryer etc but wasn't needed by us at the time. Staff were very helpful and got us a taxi within seconds

Clean tidy basic hotel. Ideal if you only need a hotel where you can get free wifi and a good nights sleep. Very close to Reichstaag and Brandenburg Gate amongst other things and transport connections if you don't want to walk.

The room was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful! When we checked out they stored our bags for a few hours with no additional charge. The location is excellent, downtown and near the train station and the subway. I definitely recommend it!!

The hotel is very well located, close to bus station, metro, checkpoint charlie, etc. The rooms are basic but clean, the shower is very small, so you need to be fit for it. The breakfast ok, not fantastic but a good variety. Overall a nice experience, good for budget city trips.

This Hotel is what it says on the tin. A budget hotel. The room was suitable for sleeping and washing, it had a separate shower to toilet, a double bed which was bare able, they give you one pillow which was annoying but they're happy to give you extra if you ask at reception. The walls are quite thin and...

Despite the 'budget' status, I found this hotel perfect. Super friendly staff, amazing room & great buffet breakfast. When I checked out, they stored my bag securely for a few hours at no additional cost - a real bonus. Will definitely be back.

We came for New Years celebrations and this hotel was perfect for it. We didn't know what to expect with the budget hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room is basic but spacious enough for two people. As expected there was no fridge but we put our drinks in bags and hung them outside our window to the same...

We picked the hotel as it was cheap and close to the action. Near restaurants, supermarkets, metro station and tourist attractions. For a budget hotel it was good, the room was clean and tidy. Reception welcoming. We didn't try the breakfast but the dining area looked nice. Wifi was free and good most of the time, but occasionally it seemed...

This was the first time I stayed on a 1 star hotel. I didn't had big expectations so it was good enough for the 1 night stay. Everything was clean and that was what I loved most here. Some people say the rooms are small but I find them pretty practical. I've stayed in smaller ones in the past. The...

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
