Select Hotel Berlin Checkpoint Charlie
Ranked #145 of 635 Hotels in Berlin
Reviewed 7 January 2018

Great place to stay, room was large and comfortable and clean. Close walking to Sbahn and other public transport. Lidl just around the corner so we would walk there in the morning and have a coffee and muffin for €2 or go to local cafe, still cheaper than the hotels breakfast of €18 each. Checkpoint Charlie a ten minute walk and we hired bikes from the hotel for the day €12 each was fantastic to get around on. Loved Berlin, so much to see and do and hotel was well located. No issues with the hotel, well priced for Berlin and would stay again.

Hotel is very comfortable and a great location. Checkpoint Charlie is 100 away. Topography of terror 100 metres away and many a restaurant to choose from. Easy access to bus and subway system. Room was clean and plenty of space. Wifi is pretty useless but with McDonald's at checkpoint Charlie it's a good alternative. Will stay again when back in Berlin

We got a great deal on Agoda for this hotel paying only £36 a night for 3 nights 17th-20th Dec 2017 (2 adults and 1 child).

We took the S45 from the airport to Templehof and then changed to the U6 to Kochstrabe (this is the stop for checkpoint Charlie and you want to go in the direction of Alt-Tegel). It's then only a 5 min walk to the hotel.

It is in a quiet location (good for us travelling with an almost 2 year old) but there's not a lot in the immediate area in terms of places to eat etc. It did feel a bit off the tourist track. But within a 10 min walk there are plenty of options.

Despite being early for check in, our room was luckily ready. However, we ended up going back down when we discovered it only had a shower rather than a bath (the baby hates showers, loves baths!). We were offered an upgrade for 10 euros extra per night for a much bigger room with a bath, this was well worth it for us. It was a nice spacious room, big windows (no nice view sadly, just of flats opposite), clean and modern. Heating was good. Huge bathroom with bath and shower. Safe in the wardrobe (no fee). Good wifi.

Can't comment on the restaurant as we didnt eat there - breakfast quite expensive if you only eat a light breakfast but looked a good choice if you want a big one to fill you up! We decided to save the money and eat on the go.

Staff friendly and helpful. No issues. For the price we paid we were very happy and have no complaints at all about the hotel. However, if we go to Berlin again, we'd probably choose a different location. That said, it was quiet and it suited us and we walked to nearly everywhere from there including Alexander Platz, the Brandenberg gate and even Charlottenburg palace (did get the train back from that one!) so it proved a good base.

This hotel is in a very central location to all attractions. Staff here are polite and friendly. However our experience was ruined by a foul smell of drains in our room, we mentioned this to the reception who sent the cleaner up whilst we were out to wash the carpet, but on our return the carpet was still damp and the smell had gone worse. We went down to reception again who did offer to move us to another Hotel, but because it was our last night we persevered with it after them giving us a bottle of spray to use in room. They also gave us complimentary drink and breakfast the next morning. Overall though this is a lovely hotel with lovely staff.

Great location, a 5/10 min walk from checkpoint charlie. Also the closest restraunt (Thai place on corner) Is very yummy and reasonably priced. The closest cocktail bar is also very friendly, cheap and STRONGGGG.

Staff where all warm and friendly, especially house keeping whom kept walking in on me and my partner in bed but it was all accidental and taken in good jest. Even if it did happen 3 times in 4 days.... Haha.

Would recommend. Has a Raddison/ Park Plaza vibe to it.

The only thing I could flaw is we booked a double room but got 2 single beds pushed together with 2 single duvets. That could have been them trying to be nice and thinking we where friends not a same sex couple though I asked for a double duvet and was given another single. Maybe they don't have double duvets here? In fairness my German is awful :)
