Intercity Hotel Berlin - fine for a night

Booked this for one night at the end of a Bike/Barge trip in Early June. Hotel very convenient at the Ostbanhof train station. Great if you are lugging baggage. Didn't get the room I needed and asked for when booking online. Room did not have A/C which was even a bit of a hassle in the cooler weather, but not too bad. beds typical European with firm mattress, just a duvet sheet and really sad pillows. Bathroom sufficient and good shower head. No room to relax in room, just bed and chair. Charge for wireless which was weak anyway. Staff was very helpful and courteous and fluent in English. Restaurant/bar was closed for the evening due to a private function which was a bit inconvenient as we just wanted to eat and crash. But staff pointed to a great spot that was just a few train stops away so it worked out fine. Right next to the east side gallery which was worth seeing (street art on the wall that's still standing) and was perfect to do before we checked out the next morning. Lots of conveniences with the fairly large train station. Didn't notice any train noise at night either.

Enjoyable stay

The location is very convenient to all the major attractions. Berlin wall is just minutes away by walk. The staff is very polite, courteous, and go out of their way to help. We cannot say enough good things about them. Couple of suggestions for improvement. (a) It will be good to have cable channel CNN in the room. (b) It seemed that the water in the shower stall was draining somewhat slowly. It may be good to check this out.

nice staff - good location

Nice, convenient hotel, very close to East Side Gallery. The free train pass helped get us on our way quickly especially since the hotel is pretty much inside a large train station. The front desk staff spoke perfect English and was extremely helpful with recommendations. The rooms were nice. This is a good hotel, which was reasonably priced.

Good experience

The location of this hotel was perfect. Rooms were basic but clean. Staff was ok, seems that customer service is not a top priority in Berlin, with that said of all places I visited my hotel seemed to be the most accommodating so I give them kudos for breaking the Berlin mold. Great deal for the price.

Standard Business Class Hotel with Lovely Staff

If you're use to boutique hotels and indeed favour these you will be underwhelmed if not disappointed by Intercity Berlin Ostbahnhof but the comparison is not worth making as it is a business class hotel catering largely for this clientele. So, there is no personal touch or refined attention to detail in service. You take your bags to your room yourself but what you certainly do get is staff that are approachable, friendly and helpful. Once you get to your room it will be clean on entry and cleaned for the duration of your stay. Tastefully and pleasingly decorated with a flat screen TV (channels except BBC News dubbed in German) and a clean modern bathroom. The bed was comfortable, pillows a little flat upon head contact, the low tog duvet was sufficient for the well judged temperature of room. Blanket available in the closet however. The in-room safe was easy to use. I didn't have breakfast so I cannot comment but the hotel is situated in Ostbahnhof station with ample breakfast options and if you are not happy with Subway, McD's, various bakeries, the two supermarkets downstairs etc, you are perfectly placed to go to another area of Berlin gratis for your breakfast as my stay included a free travelcard granting free bus, U Bahn and S Bahn use for the duration of my stay which saved me a small fortune and encouraged and indeed facilitated my wanderlust no end. Admittedly I am not one to stay in hotels any longer than sleeping time and for this the Intercity Berlin Ostbahnhof is perfect. If you however see the hotel as part of the holiday experience it is not for you, you stay in business class hotels to get work or leisure done in the city that the hotel is based.

Great rooms, great prices

The convenient location and good price made this hotel a winner. Located right at Ostbahnhof metro station, made it easy to get anywhere in the city in minutes. Located right next to the largest piece of the old Berlin Wall which is now a blocks long open air art gallery. We had free public transportation passes from the hotel -not sure if that was standard, I think it was for prepaying online, but they were a great deal! No muss, no fuss to get around town. Only complaint would be a lack of free wifi.
