Best Western Hotel City Ost3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed at the The Best Western Hotel City Ost for two nights in May this year. The hotel is in an excellent location with supermarkets, bars and shops all within easy reach. It is also very close to two underground stations with Samariterstr right outside and Franfurter Allee five minutes walk away. This made exploring Berlin very easy and cheap. The rooms were basic but they were very clean, bright and had tea and coffee making facilities and also a fridge. The room had plenty of wardrobe space and the staff were really helpful. This is an excellent mid-range hotel ideal for a short stop over. Breakfast was €10 but you could sort out your own breakfast from the local shops for a lot less if you made full use of the fridge etc. Berlin has a big problem with young alcoholics and homeless people and there are plenty of them in this area. However, they never caused us any problems or attempted to make any sort of contact with us. Apart from that we had a really enjoyable stay and would recommend this hotel for anyone doing 'Berlin on a budget'.
Great Hotel in an amazing location, barely 20 steps from the underground which makes all more simple and easier, perfect for a touch-and-go to Berlin, lovely staff and breakfast, I will surely come back! Thank you!
Cant fault the place. easy to get to. Half hour in a taxi from the airport 40euros. plenty nearby in terms of shops and places to eat. Clean inside the room. Shower was decent. No issue with wifi in our room
Hotel, faultless though do be aware that people there don't seem to be up beyond 10 pm in the suburbs ( they complain if you have the tv on in your hotel room after 10 pm!) .... it's located in the old East Berlin of the city. The local restaurants are few, great pizza place virtually next door and astoundingly cheap! .... city itself is a good visit, poignant at times and contemplative xx remember it's 50 cents for EVERY toilet trip, even in restaurants, bars and shopping malls ( put an extra €20 per couple on a 4 stay) and there's a city tax payable when you get there ( about €10 per room per three night stay) ...... Berlin Curry Wurst is a must. Ps. Get all day tickets for the travel as the UBahn is fantastic and quick to navigate for able bodied. Check for stops with the lifts for wheelchair users xx
My daughter wanted a city break but her friends pulled out. I offered to go with her. She found this hotel on a good package with flight. I hadn't considered Berlin before and wasn't sure about it but agreed to give it a go. The hotel is basic and the bar pretty none existent really but it was clean and staff were welcoming and helpful. However the best thing is it's location. Just feet from the front door is the U-Bahn station which has trains regularly taking you around Berlin. Berlin is a really interesting city what with its varied history - good and bad. Transport links make it really easy to make your way around and the Berlin Welcome Card is great value. Don't book transfers from the airport - buy a Welcome card there and get the train into the city - easy!! We really enjoyed our visit and I'd recommend hotel and city to anyone.
This is a chain hotel in Friedrichshain. The hotel is reasonably new, clean and fine. Right outside a U-Bahn station (Samariterstr) with direct connection to Alexanderplatz. There is a supermarket in the GF. So it is fine for a city trip to Berlin. The main concern might be the location. Berlin is huge so you will need to take the train/ubahn anyway to some attractions. Friedrichshain is a hip area in Berlin that might not be for everybody's tastes. If you look for something more traditional and central head for Kudamm / Charlottenburg area.
Great hotel with friendly staff. Rooms are clean and up to date. there is fast free WIFI. I only had room so did not try the breakfast thats 10 Euros. Plenty of places to eat. U bahn just outside hotel. Well worth a stay.
Stayed for 3 nights from 6th to 9th March,very clean and spacious rooms friendly staff and very convenient for the underground station.My only gripe was the breakfast at 10 euro's was a bit expensive but other than that was just perfect
Hotel situated right outside U-Bahn station, which comes in handy for visiting different places and getting to and from the airport. Wide variety of breakfast choices served. Hotel staff friendly, helpful and speak a variety of languages. Rooms well kept, clean and tidy. If it's your first trip to Berlin, a few days are required and this hotel offers a competitive price for what you will need.
Fabulous location as situated right beside the underground which brought us into the center or the airport. On arrival, the receptionist didn't seem too friendly. The elevator didn't work the whole time we were there and as I had only got my cast off from breaking my ankle less than 4 weeks prior to this, it wasn't ideal to be walking up and down the stairs constantly. It's close to some lovely pubs. Also a subway, burger king etc is close in case you want food that you are used to. The breakfast in the hotel was also lovely, wide variety to choose from. The hotel was clean and the staff were helpful enough when we needed to know anything. However, on our second night, it was freezing outside but the hotel was far too warm and we couldn't sleep (even with the dial in the room turned down) We would return here if we were to return to Berlin.
