Dear Guest, we thank you very much for your honesty. First of all we would like to apologize that there was a reason to complain during your last stay with us. We had some technical problems with our WIFI. Some devices have better connection with our hotel Wifi than others. In the near future we will improve our guest internet...

First the pros: The location on Kurfürstendamm is superb. The free newspapers in the breakfast room were also a nice surprise. The bartender who opened my store-bought wine bottle with an "of course" and a friendly smile also deserves credit. Then the cons: This is not a four-star hotel, but maybe a three-star. The staff - with the exception of...

Clean and tidy room. Friendly and helpful front desk. Could be a room for improvement with the bar. Number of 3 guests in one room with an extra bed could be little too much especially if you are planning to stay longer in the room.

Excellent location of this hotel right on Ku-dam next to Hotel Kempinski.. Nice, clean and spacious rooms. The Staff and service there was excellent. Special thanks to Kamil and the rest of the crew. They even rent bicicles. To bad we've never tried it before on our numerous trips to Berlin. Will definitely try to correct this oversight from now...

Good location right at the Kurfürstendamm, close access to public transport, friendly staff, breakfast buffet with large choice from eggs to cheese, meat, fruit and müesli, and a proper coffee machine. Charming, clean and well equipped rooms, free WLAN. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.

Nice hotel, our room was quite large for 3 of us and right on the front on the Ku'damm. Big picture windows that could closed to keep traffic noise down. Breakfast is buffet type and continental but still enough choice with cereals and fruit also. This is the posh part of town and very nice, lots of shops if you...

Just great for a city break. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the room just right (we had a room at the back of the hotel which was very quiet), plenty of choice at breakfast and hard to think of a better location. Not only near the train station which services the airport but also the underground, plus within...

The hotel is quite OK with nice rooms and a good standard of comfort, and the location is ideal for tourism as it is within walking distance from more or less all shopping, sightseeing and dining you could desire. However, seen from a business standpoint, the hotel will not find me as a guest in the future, as the internet...

Charming Hotel on famous Kurfuerstendamm. The room was a bit small but the location can't be beat. Walking distance to subway, restaurants, KDW, Hardrock Cafe and downtown. Breakfast was great + there was a nice restaurant/bar on site with outdoor and indoor seating. Parking garage!

Hotel California is an excellent option when staying in Berlin. Very good location, 2 minutes to subway station Uhlandstrasse, from where, practically in no more than 15-20 you can get in any part of the town, even the east side. Kufuerstendamm is a lively street, many shops, caffes, restaurants with different specialties (italian, chinese,indian,thailandese etc), souvenire shops and many, many...

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.
