Powered by AI

The Holiday Inn Express Berlin City Centre, an IHG Hotel, garners praise for its prime location near public transport and attractions, greatly appreciated by guests for its convenience. Although the parking fee is deemed pricey by many, the hotel compensates with its commendable cleanliness and amiable service, creating a welcoming environment. While the rooms are celebrated for their tidiness and comfort, space, especially in bathrooms, is noted to be on the snug side. Amenities like the complimentary breakfast are a hit, despite some comments on the limited hot food selection and occasional upkeep matters.

This is one of my best hotel stays for the price point. Room is great quality and value. I was a bit close to elevator but room was still quiet and could barely hear if people walked by very loudly.
Breakfast is ok, I wish there were more vegetables available :).
I prefer booking via third-party for loyalty purposes and greatly appreciated the hotel didn’t treat me as a second-class customer. I have premium loyalty on the third-party booking service I use and appreciate the hotel gave me a Member’s room.

We were staying with our 4 month old baby and I would not recommend that. They offered us baby crib but they didn't have mattress for it. For the mattress they put there very soft blanket so it actually seemed quite dangerous for a 4 month old. Luckyly our room had sofa that u can open so we gave up a crib and used this sofa as additional bed.

Conditioner didn't work first day and there were some issues but it worked next day. Reception offered us new room but as they were not sure if it works there so we were just happy with extra blanket.

We asked for earlier check in and check out with an extra fee week before many times. Overall they recommended us to register as a IHG client and then we will get those extra services when we arrive. Don't waste your time, doesn't change a thing. I totally understand If hotel is fully booked but if we wait in the reception with 4 month old it would be nice to make our room as priority. ( Sadly we saw how many quests got in before us. ) Before I asked again for the opportunity for later check out I asked the woman who wanted to clean our room if she knows if anyone would come in this room after us, she said it will be empty.

We thought that breakfast was nice. We were really suprised about the coffee quality.

In conclusion I would recommend this hotel if you don't travel with baby. Any of our problems wouldn't occur. Good location with fair price and breakfast included.

The booking company had us double booked and the staff here was very rude about it. They had us booked at the airport hotel instead which is 35 min by car from the city center and stressed that it was a better hotel than the one we booked. We didn’t care about the standard of the hotel of course, the important thing was that it was centrally located. They offered to buy one taxi-ride but of course we needed to check in and then get back to city center. And then back to the hotel and then to the train station. They only repeated that they couldn’t do more for us and was totally unapologetic about the situation.

It might have been a perfect stay but the check out was a little bit disappointing.
We were a group of fourteen people, half teenagers and half adults. We needed to check out at five a.m. and at that time breakfast was not running, yet. We expected to be allowed to receive at least a coffee from the automatic dispenser but it was not working yet. Nothing for breakfast unless we had paid for a breakfast packet. Consider that breakfast was included in the room rate and consider that at the check in we were offered some 🥐 croissants and some fruit 🍑 as welcome. Apart from this the hotel 🏨 is at a perfect location close to the main attractions like the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, Check Point Charlie.
Points to improve:
Bathroom quite small
Triple badroom might be slightly bigger. We, as IHG members, could not have a bigger three beds room like our friends with a Queen badroom

Stayed here for the Berlin Marathon so the prices were high. It's a good location close to a few U and S stops and on a bus line that goes straight to Central Station in about 15 minutes. Also, it's within walking distance of Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate and other sites to see. Rooms were clean, but there was no safe. The shower in our bathroom drained rather slow. You can crack the windows for more air flow, but it can be noisy depending on which way the room faces. The breakfast was all cold items, but the variety was good and the breakfast area was large and clean. The hotel bar was lively at night the weekend we were there. There is a market across the street for snacks.

Get what you pay for with this hotel. The room was a decent size, bed was comfortable, only gripe was that the air con wasn’t working and the room got a bit warm and stuffy as the window barely opens. We were allowed to check in early which was great, reception staff were kind and helpful. Considering the breakfast was free there was actually a really good choice of pastries, cheeses, breads, fruits etc. Close to amenities and less than a 5 min walk from s-bahn station.

Excellent clean budget hotel. On bus route from city centre (1 change from express bus from Tegel airport) . We paid 27 euros for a taxi back to airport so a very affordable hotel option for a city visit.
Very good choices for continental breakfast. Several affordable restaurants only minutes away by foot. Large modern shopping / food outlet area less than 10 minutes walk up one main road. Many tourist attractions nearby but the city attractions are easily reached.
Vey attentive staff and very useful luggage room to store you bags on your last day before heading back to airport.

I stayed here from 26/10-30/10 and found my stay here to be great, I work for another IHG hotel in England so am used to the process of how a Express works but nevertheless I have to stay the staff here were very lovely and polite, I was served by a few different members of staff including one who was covering from a nearby hotel who was great and friendly. The room was a good size and the breakfast had a good offering, the hotel is in a good location and a lot of the main attractions are within walking distance. I played on coming back to Berlin after Covid as there was somethings I missed out on so I will be staying at this hotel again

My husband, son and I recently visited this hotel on a three night stay.

We were greeted by a very friendly lady on reception and because our room was not ready arranged for complimentary coffee and stored our luggage. We did check in at that time and it was all very straightforward.

The room itself was very clean, selection of hot beverages, nice bathroom with great shower. Perfectly adequate for the three of us. The hairdryer didn’t work, but reception gave me a loan of one for the duration of our stay, which was very helpful.

My husband and son had pizza in the restaurant which they enjoyed and breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice. It can be busy between 9 and 930. The bar staff at night were also very helpful and bar is quite pleasant to sit and have a drink after a day of exploring.

The hotel is walking distance for many attractions and there is a very pretty underground station across from the hotel with direct route to the Olympic Stadium and Potsdamer Platz.

Check out was as smooth as check in with the hotel again willing to store our luggage.

Would highly recommend this hotel for a Berlin stay. Staff were great, with nothing being too much trouble. This is our second stay in two months at a Holiday Inn (Belfast) and both have been enjoyable.

I'm not sure about the hotel shuttle bus. We used the underground which is less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel and is easy access to all of the tourist attractions and sites.

We ate at Ristorante Diomira, about a half block up the street from the Holiday Inn. Moderate prices, not too bad. Friedrichstraße is two streets directly east of the hotel. We saw a few pretty cheap looking ethnic restaurants over here and ate at Delhi 6, Friedrichstraße # 237. It's a 10-15 minute walk but not the nicest looking 'hood in town.

Hello, we arrived really late so we took the Taxi to the hotel. It was very reasonable. Sorry I don't remember the exact cost. We paid in Canadian Dollar. The breakfast is pretty good also.
