CALMA Berlin Mitte3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel is a little hard to find from the street, but once you do it is definitely worth it! The room was very spacious and clean and with plenty of natural lighting. It is within a 5 minute walk to both the U-Bahn and S-Bahn lines which will take you anywhere in the city. It also is located near plenty of restaurants and bars, making it easy to get a quick meal or drinks. Check in and check out were quick and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful with finding our way around the city on the first day.
Visited Berlin for a city break - stayed 2 nights in this hotel. Location was great, only half an hour or so from the airport by public transport, really close to the station - if you come out the right side it's less than 5 minutes to the hotel. Even though it was so close to the main strip, the noise levels each night were fine. From this location you are close to part of the Berlin wall, as well as Brandenburg gate etc. We walked it and it took about 20 mins, but you can easily get on the train/tram and it would only take a couple of minutes. The hotel is not immediately obvious from the street, but once inside it was lovely. Decor was great, room stylish and modern. I'm a massive fan of the grey scheme, made the rooms look bigger. Great use of space in the room, and it was a great size- bigger than some of the rooms I've stayed in. The heating also worked brilliantly - Berlin was cold, but the hotel heating was great in warming us up! Bed was a bit firm for me, but other than that was perfect for our needs. Staff members were very helpful, circled all the key things to visit and gave us local tips. They offered to help with transport tickets etc but we had already bought a Berlin card from the airport. If you buy a travel card each day it would be slightly cheaper, but was convenient for us to just have the 3 day travel card. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as we thought it was slightly pricey, instead we went to the local cafe each day. There are plenty of places to choose from for all meals. Hotel had free wifi which is always a bonus. Train stations also have free wifi. Would definitely visit again - a great base to explore which is exactly what we needed!
I traveled to Berlin for a short week of sightseeing with my 2 year old and we stayed in this hotel. It was clean and quiet, and the breakfast was lovely and well stalked. The staff was just great, very warm and friendly, and easy going with my child. The neighborhood was full of restaurants and bars, and was very close to the U/S-Bahn, as well as trams and busses. Good shopping nearby, and very close to the Naturkundemuseum. Only criticism would be that the bed was old and worn out. I got a bit of a back ache from it.
Room: I had a economy room. WLAN for free, good speed small and my room did not have a desk! (According to webpage even the economy rooms partly have desks) --> ask for a economy room with desk. Parking situation: bad. and no parking house near by. Breakfast: Quite good but not special requests (eggs sunny side or omelet) are met Service/Reception: has potential for improvement. Could be friendlier and more knowable about the area. I will came back if I travel without car.
the staff is very helpful and friendly but not overbearing. the place could be cosier with a bit more warm colors, and less empty grey spacesbut the design still is nicely done in the current trendy style, they even havent forgottent the "useless" but decorative vintage light bulbs... the usual uncomfortable mini duvet, welcome to germany, great if you like fighting covers in the night to stay warm. anyways it is still an great option for transport to central station, the tram is 2 mins walk away and takes you there in 4 or 5 stations directly. also try the restaurant ruben and carla almost next door....their cheesecake changed my life
We have stayed in this hotel for the third time and it is a very nice and clean hotel. The location is near the Museum Island and around the corner of the Friedrichstrasse. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is very good. A place to go back to.
Inexpensive and beautiful! Terrific hotel, close to shopping, public transportation and lovely restaurants. Tucked away on a quiet street in a peaceful courtyard, felt like a mindful retreat! I would recommend it 100%! Thank you!
Booked this hotel for 2 nights whilst visiting the Christmas markets. As we arrived at midnight we had arranged to collect the key from the key safe outside. The whole arrival process was simple considering there was no staff at this time of night. We were 3 women sharing and the room was huge with plenty of space for us all. Very modern in decor and minimalist which I really liked. The bathroom was a good size and had toiletries, a decent hairdryer and a fair sized shower cubicle. The location was quiet during the night. It was an easy walk to many bars and cafes and only 10 minutes to the main train station but there were subway stops much closer. I would definitely return and would recommend this hotel.
Calma Mitte in Berlin is just that. Centrally located with trams and subway right outside the door, and quiet in spite of its central location. The staff is accommodating, very friendly with a high level of servicemindedness. You won't have to go far to find restaurants, and bars. Unter den Linden and Brandenburger Tor are just a 15 minute walk away.
Nice choice with the following in its favor: Great location –vibrant East Berlin neighborhood lined with interesting art galleries, shops, attractive and high quality restaurants right around the corner (Singaporean, Vietnamese, Italian). Short walk to public transport and we struck out from there to take in countless sights and local attractions. Bustling street outside the hotel, but our rooms were located within a large courtyard, which made for a very quiet and restful environment. Great breakfast area, featuring hot and cold items, a bountiful buffet including cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, breads, rolls – all quality ingredients. Our breakfast was included in our package, along with a two-day public transportation pass. Nice staff, speaks English if needed. Rooms clean and attractive. Free wi-fi worked fine. But be prepared to do without amenities you may take for granted: No telephone in the room, so couldn't call the hotel desk, other rooms, or use number to access phone card. Also no clock, bedside table, coffee or tea-maker, or even closet. There’s a t.v. but the channel offerings were very limited. Room is tiny. Shower is extremely small even for a small/medium person, and water ran hot and cold without warning, plus no shower bar or grip, and the floor surface was smooth, so it’d be easy to slip and fall. Just a few electrical outlets, and located in inconvenient places. Overall though a good bargain, and the price was very reasonable as long as you know what you’re getting.
