Clean, modern, well priced, walking distance from the key down-town areas, friendly staff
No underground parking
- Rooms are renovated according to new Holiday Inn Express style (although bathroom was left in old style) - WiFi for three devices - There are free public parking possibilities in the near
- It is rather hard to call it a centre location, although some shopping and entertainment facilities are in the near - Bathroom not renovated, one door both for Shower and WC (lack of privacy) - A/C operates in own way, hard to adjust
Limbecker platz and centre were spitting distance and the Colosseum (theatre) was even closer. Breakfest was good nothing special but everything was there. Rooms clean and comfy and the bathroom was cleverly used that if you opened the door you could close the toiletarea in one flow
Nowhere on the site was mentionned that you could park below the hotel. It says public and payed but not where ... shame would had made it even more accesable if you knew up front
Great location (3 min walk from big shopping center, U Bahn, Ikea), good room, pretty good beds. If you are lucky, you can get free parking on a few streets around the hotel. Okay breakfast
Friendly personel, clean and cossy hotel in a quiet location 5 minutes from Berlin Platz U bahn (metro)
Breakfast was really poor
Overal cleaningness of hotel pretty high. Friendly staff. Good location vs city centre. Free parking! WiFi in contradiction to other writers, is pretty good. Breakfast is nice.
Bed is a bit small. Coffee without milk at breakfast is undrinkable.
Staff is nice. It is near the subway station and a shopping centre.
Location is perfect for attending a show at the colloseum.
Bed was too soft and cover small for 2 people. Although wifi is strong, it is a nuisance you have to log in with the code (impossible to memorize) every time. Again and again.
Nice people Good quality fixtures Excellent location
Their internet went down and fixing lost me an evening of work
Breakfast buffet and wifi included in already low rate. We were able to find free street parking nearby. Near shopping center and theaters. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Room was small...would have been ok for a couple but with 2 kids on the sofa bed it was very cramped. Beds were not that comfortable.
The staff is so friendly and helpful.
Very clean and spacious rooms...well maintained by friendly and professional staff
I would have liked cooked breakfasts rather than continental breakfasts....but I realise that is an English/Irish thing
Clean smart Hotel ideal for over one night or two/three day stopovers. Good Buffet breakfast although they didn't rotate the choice of meats and cheeses daily. Excellent helpfull staff. Good location in quiet part of city.
Children running around corridors and Bedrooms. Breakfast area a little small but they did open up two ante rooms at the weekend. Exceptionally noisy extract fan in Bathroom reported but not attended to.
Tea and coffee in the room.
The pull-out bed for our 12-year old daughter was not very comfortable. Not enough plugs for our phones/IPad.
Temperature in the room was high, had to use air con to lower it in October!
Included breakfast, coffee in the evening, nice staff. Best croissants and water pressure for shower!! Excellent value.
Room was cramped and beds were hard.
Nice service. My booking for a hotel room got changed into an apartment for free. thanks
WiFi reception is very bad.
Staff was helpful and polite. Free breakfast included. Nice bar area were we could play games we bought at the Essen Spiel Fair.
We booked for 3x twin bed rooms but got 3x one king-size bed rooms on the first night due to overbooking. We could switch the following night to twin-bed rooms.
Absolutely not bad in general
Internet did not work at all
Staff is helpfull sp. night time
