Excellent Traditional Hotel
Staff, Location, Ambience
Lovely, small, traditional style hotel in the city with friendly staff. Bus stop right outside the door direct to Potsdamer Platz or as far as Alexander Platz. Perhaps in need of a wee touch of paint here and there, but otherwise great. Would stay here again.
Nice small hotel
Close the subway and city center
Silent area at least when having a room inside the block.
Not accessible when having a wheel chair. Elevator stops between the floors so you need to carry your luggage up or down.
Breakfast plenty and various. Location good. Staff is helpful.
we stayed for a week. we liked the breakfast very much, the nice staff at the reception and the location. we booked at a promotion price, which still was a bit too high.
generally we enjoyed our stay, however there are some points to improve:
we were given a room on ground floor in the backyard: we could not leave the windows open as it is easily accessible from the ground level; we had to close the curtains to have privacy; and staff was smoking under our window, the smoke came in.
the corridor door closes very loudly, fortunately there are only 2 rooms in this corridor.
the garbage (or who knows what) is carried along the yard 7am in the morning, a bit too noisy.
we don't expect to have vacuum cleaning every day, but at least before the arrival, it would be nice to have it done thoroughly (and please flush the toilet). the garbage from the room could be removed daily.
same with the blanket and sheets: we don't expect to fold them every day, but if you do it, do it right.
Location is ideal for sightseeing: close to centre, bus stop right in front of the hotel, metro is 500 metres away.
Great location friendly staff....would stay again,
Clean and liked the fact it had bar area. Right on bus stop....very convenient to central Berlin . Good breakfast !
Only criticism was lack of fridge in room. And perhaps English movie channel would be appreciated. Definitely would stay again and recommend to anyone!
Quiet area but close to major attractions
Very clean, old style with good food
I had a lovely room facing the courtyard. The hotel was very clean. It was right beside a bus stop - easy reach to the main attractions of Berlin. The hotel was very "homy" with great breafast.
Classical hotel. Great location.
Great location: 10 minutes walk to Berlin Philharmonie. There's a bus stop at the hotel's door!
Altberlin hotel is a classic style hotel located on Potsdamer Strasse, in the heart of Berlin. There is a bus stop at the front of hotel's door, so you can start your journey to all nice places in Berlin without difficulty. Even if you choose to walk, Berliner Philharmoniker could be reach in 10 minutes; Postdammer Platz in 15 minutes; and Branderburg Tor in 20-25 minutes. The staffs were helpful. This is a classic style hotel of which design would remind you to pre war time :D. There is an elevator, but you will still need to use the stairs. No welcome drink or anything -- you have to take them from the restaurant. Anyway, the experience with the hotel is all positive.
If you ask for WiFi, they will give you a password for free unlimited access. But they do not offer you. You have to ask.
Old style hotel
Old style hotel with large rooms
The hotel was old stylish and is situated in a building which used to be uper class flats.
The room was spacious and had a very high sealing (about 4m).
The bathroom was nice and clean.
The personal was helpful but did not have much information on Berlin culture, nightlife, music.......
The hotel is situated on Potsdamer Strasse which has relatively much trafic so there were some street noise.
The bus stoped outside the hotel so the comunications was OK otherwise there is a walking distance about 1km to Potsdamer platz.
We think the hotel was OK but will probably look for an other hotel next time in Berlin as it is situated a bit off.
United States of America,
Great hotel with comfy beds!
The beds were very comfortable, good location to Potsdamer Platz train station, friendly staff
The hotel was nice, the staff were friendly. We had a big breakfast for free at the hotel to prepare us for the day. The only inconvenience is ringing the bell and waiting for someone inside to let you in.
Space Bar across the street is fun for dancing and drinks!
