Berlin is always good valued for hotel choices and this hotel is not exactly bad, but given competition with other hotels nearby (I stayed at perhaps 7 others) this is the worst. Hardly worth the 4-star ranking but it is normally cheap. Other 4-star hotel has tea maker, toiletries, sleeper...this hotel has none. The fridge has two bottles of water...

bad experience from the reception desk (bad attitude of the receptionist having the shirt out of the trousers and being sarcastic when asking for twin beds as i was with a colleague), to the room that is not appropriate for a 4* hotel and a bathroom that has nothing to do with the pictures. no wifi in the room even...

Good value for money hotel on Ku'dam. Great location, good sleeping quality and a good breakfast that was included. Only disappointment was the extra bed that was to small and not really comfortable. We stayed on 3rd floor with roam towards the main boulevard. We were very pleased with our stay.

If you are looking for a good value hotel with good transport links to the airport and the rest of Berlin this is a good choice. Only tried the breakfast which was as you would expect. Rooms were OK not huge and not the most modern but good to use as a base

I had to stay here for one night when my flight home was cancelled and the hotel I had been in was full. I was impressed with the excellent price, the fact my room was ready within 20 minutes of my booking it, and the friendliness of the staff. The room was spacious and comfortable. It had very high ceilings,...

I've just returned from a mini break staying in this hotel. The location is excellent for links to the ubahn and for buses. There's plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. The hotel is clean and most of the staff are friendly. Breakfast is continental, as you'd expect. The rooms are old fashioned and could do with an update....

This was quite a good hotel in a convenient location, but I'm not sure if it deserves 4 star rating. Although we had reserved a superior double room , we were given room 108 , which had more of a hostel feel about it. We complained and said we wanted a room that looked like the picture on the website...

I'm really disappointed with my stay at the California Hotel. The room was far away from the pictures I saw during my booking process, the room was dated and the colour & fit-out of the hotel room and especially the bath didn't match the advertising. I'm maybe spoiled by my regular travel through Australia and the US but the hotel...

This is a good hotel and only just missed out from getting a very good rating. We were on a 4 day stay over Christmas period. Arrived midday but told no chance of checking in before 1500 (although hotel not full) very impersonal reception, not a good start, however could leave our luggage. Checked later that afternoon after a good...

Very classy, intimate hotel. Perfect location, with subway and tourist bus stops in 100 meters. Very close to train station - 5 min walk. Quiet athmosphere, very responsive staff. We will definitely remeber this place! We were there on February 2015.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
