“Great weekend in Berlin”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

Visiting our daughter who lived nearby so chose for convenience to her flat but enjoyed so much would choose there again even if daughter moved a little further away. Very clean, always helpful, modern almost Scandinavian type of decoration. Breakfast was a good choice and fresh. Always felt safe around the area even returning past midnight. Highly recommended.

This hotel is located in a quiet residential area but it has very access to public transportation. A short 3 minutes walk took me to a bus stop where I could catch the M41 bus which goes to, amongst others, Potsdamer Platz and the Hauptbahnhof. A slightly longer walk (about 10-15 minutes) in the other direction and I was at the Hallesches Tor station. Despite being in a rather deserted area, I never felt any worry for my safety coming home after dark. The great thing about the location is that it is almost completely silent at night enabling me to sleep very well.

My single room was spacious and clean and the bed was large and comfortable. The shower has good water pressure and the stand out point is the heated floor tiles in the bathroom! The bathroom is equipped with basic amenities and a hairdryer was offered to me during check in. As I travelled alone, the frosted glass door that separated the room and the bathroom posed no problem to me although I can see how it might be an issue if I were travelling with someone else.

There are no coffee making facilities in the room but there is a complimentary bottle of water in the room when I first arrived. I only have two suggestions for improvement with regard to the room - Firstly, the lighting in the room was inadequate for night time reading. I usually read up on my plans for the next day before bed and would have liked a bed side light that enabled me to read. There is a reading lamp on the desk but the desk is a tiny one and there was insufficient space to spread my maps on. Secondly, the TV is installed at a weird angle so that I had to twist my body to view it from the bed. Placing it on the wall in front of the bed would make viewing much more comfortable.

The buffet style breakfast was good. There is no hot food but instead the is a good spread of breads, cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, smoked salmon and herring salad to enjoy while gazing out at the pretty backyard (I chose a window seat every time).

There is an elevator and also a computer with free internet at the bar. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful.

I'd have no qualms about recommending this hotel and would myself stay there again in a heartbeat. It was a comfortable stay and good value for money.

Hotel Johann is located in the vibrant multicultural Kreuzberg section of Berlin, on a quiet residential street. We enjoyed living like Berliners for 5 nights, coming home to our neighborhood in the evening. The hotel is contemporary, very clean and pleasingly decorated. Our bright, roomy, high-ceilinged room faced the pretty courtyard and was extraordinarily quiet for a city accommodation. Our fabulously comfortable bed, in the German style, had separate mattresses on a single platform, 2 cozy comforters and large square pillow. It was so comfortable that we tried to find out more about it in hopes of replicating it back home!
The breakfast was the best free breakfast in my memory! All the foods appeared to be artisanal, beautifully presented and super fresh, including tasty soft-boiled eggs, fresh yogurt, granola, gourmet cheeses, beautiful whole-grain breads and rolls, freshly cut fruit salad and much more; altogether delicious. Served in a sunny room overlooking the courtyard, breakfast took us through until dinner many days! Free wireless internet too.
The only cautions about Hotel Johann are the following:
1. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the metro, longer than would probably be true in the busier parts of Berlin, and the way is not well-lit at night.
2. In our lovely room, there were a couple of strange quirks: a) There was not a lot of light in the room, making it almost impossible to see items in the wardrobe; b) If you are traveling with a partner with whom you do not ordinarily share bodily functions, talk to the management before you reserve. Our room had a sliding piece of glass as a bathroom door, with several inches of open space, so that someone sitting in the room could have a face-to-face discussion with the person using the toilet.

Room Tip: Large, sunny beautiful double room with view on courtyard, vaulted and brick wall.

I came to Berlin on a whim and the cafe I was at in Kreuzberg recommended this place. The room was clean and well designed, including the bathroom. The bed was comfortable, the staff was really friendly and helpful and spoke English well. Free internet access. Great price. Impressed!

Room Tip: I took the bus from Tegel, then the subway and then walked. It cost me less than 3 EU to get here.

Johann Hotel is definitely value for money. I stayed there for 3 nights in October and my entire stay was a very pleasant experience. The room was modern, the heated tiles were a really good touch, there was free internet wifi, the breakfast had a lot of excellent choices, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is about a 10-min walk to the nearest metro station. It was a dark walk from Hallesches Tor metro station but the area seems relatively safe. The hotel is situated in a very quiet, peaceful residential area, which is exactly what you need to be able to rest well after a whole day of walking around. For non-German visitors, the hotel could do with one or two English channels.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the side of the road is better if you are a light sleeper.
