They were kind enough to provide the necessities we needed and guide us to the nearest supermarkets. The room was very spacious and clean! The location was superb! It was right on the famous shopping street with various shops nearby. The train station is a short 3 minute walk and a supermarket is a few meters away.

                Great location, easy transport links, great shopping and eating - a great hotelAfter reading a couple of recent reviews my expectations were greatly exceeded - the entrance to the hotel is lovely with a good welcome from the staff. Our room was spacious and modern with all good facilities overlooking the main road, despite this there was no noise. Breakfast was 'continental' but included sausage, bacon and scrambled eggs - coffee was either self service or you could get a pot. The yellow tour bus was approx 250 metres away so ideal to get around the city (22 euros). The underground was about 500 metres away and a main railway line about half a mile, so easy to get around. For the price you pay for this hotel you just can't go wrong, especially if you are a shopper, there are hundreds of shops on this same road walking towards the city centre and just as many places to eat - highly recommended.

                Hotel with Perfect Location and Excellent Staff”

                proximity to u-bahn stations, shopping malls and restaurants.

                Staff at the hotel was friendly and very professional. Hotel California is closely located to u-bahn stations (Savignyplatz and Uhland-str), Ku De Wa shopping mall, the Berlin Zoo and the museum of the story of Berlin. You can get to these places by walking for about 5 to 10 minutes. It is right in the middle of a lively shopping district so you will be spoilt for choice when you want some retail therapy. It generally feels quite safe even at night. We also loved that there were numerous local restaurants nearby that we could dine at. We enjoyed a variety of cuisines at affordable prices. If you are staying at Hotel California, we would strongly encourage that you explore the Savignyplatz area and its restaurants. Its a little dark at night but don't be discouraged by that. The restaurants around that area are worth it. Also, just next to Hotel California is Haagen Daz. Its a great treat to enjoy after along day of shopping and sight seeing in Berlin. We also liked how staff placed and constantly replenished a tray of Spekulatis at the foyer. It makes for a great welcome when you are come back to the hotel. The room was also very comfortable and clean with a very well working heater. We live in a tropical city so we are a bit afraid of the cold, especially at night. The toilet was luxurious decorated with granite tiles and a comfortable bath tub.

                We were a family with a kid. The basic facilities in the room was impressive . An additional bed was available and safety locker , mini fridge, heaters and wifi were some facilities available. How ever an electric kettle was missing which deprived tea/ coffee making ability. The reception ( a few ) was not very pleasing. They were not that helpful. The breakfast was comprehensive and impressive. The Gym is just a namesake and nothing is impressive.The location was good with Metro trains and buses available closeby

                After checking in at 23:10 I was greeted with kind and polite staff who checked me in quick and efficiently and again when checking out. The bar area is excellent with friendly staff and helpful advice. The room was spacious with flat screen tv,free wifi and a clean modern bathroom. The rooms are warm which i found was a bonus in Berlin! The breakfast area is large with everything you could ask for and again friendly and helpful staff. Excellent hotel. Will stay there again

                Friendly place, good breakfast, and very central!”

                Good Breakfast, staff was super friendly, and great shopping nearby!

                room was pretty good. not the largest but was good for the 2 of us, and the bed was really comfortable. close to alot of places like shopping (food and clothes) and was central. overall good experience, however when we checked out we had an unexpected fee,even though when we asked the night before we left, they said we were clear. (we checked at at around 4am,and were in a rush for our train, so we weren't expecting that). the extra charge was because we had 2 of us, instead of the booking for 1 that we accidentally made on agoda. on the plus, they did pack us a bag of food to go (because we told them we were leaving super early, and was in lieu of our breakfast that was included.) so that was a very nice touch.there service is really good! we went during xmas, so there was a really cool german market super close. also close to the berlin zoo! also, they had a very nice steamroom and spa!!

                Location

                little things can overshadow larger things in hotels. there was initially no seal on the bathroom basin plug, and the plug assembly would not stay in place. a mention the the front desk resulted in a seal being fitted, but to maintain enough water for a shave or a simple wash required the taps to be run continuously. the bathroom door hinges squeaked. a few drops of oil and a 2-dollar seal would help to create an atmosphere of quiet efficiency. the hotel needs an effective quality assurance program, as relying on guest reports is not a way to maintain the standard that the hotel itself sets.

                No cons

                Berlin is a beautiful city and our Hotel was very central with easy access to public transport. We met friends on the same flight going over and they helped out alot regarding the transport ie when buying tickets for travelling get a small group ticket - this covers up to 5 people - this costs 16 Euro's. This allows the group to travel on trains, underground and buses.Fantastic value.

                Dated, tired poor value”

                Moved rooms 3 times to find decent internet. Still poor. Massage service not on offer despite website promoting it. No lounge to sit in and relax. Staff were efficient but not overtly professional. Rooms are small with poor standard of fittings and not a lot of min room amenities, no shampoo or conditioner, no hand cream or body lotion for example. In each of the 3 rooms no mini bar but still asked by reception what had I used out of mini bar! Electric sockets loose in room, bedside light not working, no heating in room, bathrobes additional costs, no slippers, shower was loose and sprayed water everywhere except onto me. SHower in Sauna area not working and drain was blocked. Sauna was not working. Small pillows, very soft mattress (uncomfortable for me with a bad back). Breakfast was good, wide selection, but an uninviting room. Overt Hagan Daas advertising. Overall I was unimpressed and did not consider this a 4 star hotel, more like a 2/3 star hotel.

                It’s okay. A little bit old. We booked Standard room, then the room is super small (no big bed, they provide 2 single bed combining) the water is not heating. After complaining, they upgraded us to superior room. It’s much better, the staff is helpful, willing to help us Still suggest to my friends if coming to Berlin
