City Hotel Berlin East

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I needed a room for one night in Berlin and this place is perfect especially for the price. It was a little confusing because when I booked it the name said City Hotel but when I got there it is called Grand City Hotel and the the logo is GC and then there's no reception for the hotel you have to go to the holiday inn which is connected to the Grand City Hotel. But overall it's a decent clean place.

air conditioner was really bad, very hot in the room internet - bad and complicated connection

Room is Clean and quiet. However wifi is poor. It automatically disconnected every single minute.

Very nice and clean hotel. Too far from downtown and the staff really dont care about giving information. We got a very good price so that was good

Afordable, but not 4 star by far. In standard rooms there is no AC. And no fridge in entire hotel! Internet is 5 Euro / day! :((

I stayed here for two nights. The staff were good and welcoming. They gave train tickets, car parking tickets and dollar exchanged at the reception.

Nothing special. Television showed only 6 channels and only one in English. Refrigerator and mini-bar is missing - is a minus.

The location of the hotel is easily accessible by a 30 minute public transportation ride to downtown Berlin. The hotel is run by the Holiday Inn staff, but has a much simpler decor than the other towers specified as Holiday Inn. The beds are not very comfortable and the pillows lack the fluff I would expect, but the price was so affordable it made Hostels look expensive. I would stay there again if I was on a budget. The staff is very friendly and everyone speaks multiple languages. They try to help you out as best as they can.

If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay in Berlin, then this is the place. The prices were rock-bottom, but the rooms were large and clean. It is kind of far away from most attractions, but there are multiple public transportation modes in the direct vicinity. Our online rate did not include breakfast, but the reception desk offered it to us for 7.50 Euro (approx 9$) - which I suggest you take advantage of. The bottom line is that I recommend this hotel if you need to get the most bang from your buck...

This is a simple place to stay that is a very good value for frugal travelers. The room is clean and looks recently remodeled. Bed is comfortable. No frills: internet costs extra (8 Euro for 60 min, 13 Euro and up per day); no A/C and room is hot in summer. The big window opens fully to help cool the room, but then you get traffic and light rail noise, sirens, etc. No toiletries, only a wall-mounted "all over shampoo" dispenser with liquid soap for your hair, body, hands (it works fine, but I still bought some soap). There is a nice bottle of water for you in the room if you want to pay 3,50 Euro. I suggest you use the bottle opener for some beer you get at the supermarket. It is not centrally located. It is located on two big roads, but is not near any transportation hubs. For instance to get to Alexanderplatz you must take 2 trams, or walk a block and then take one tram for about 15 minutes. The ringbahn is about 10 minutes away (by foot, then tram). The verdict: hotel comfort and privacy at hostel price, but off the beaten path.

The hotel was great. We were right across from the Tram pickup that takes you all around the city. The rooms were really clean and when we needed help finding different attractions the staff was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction. I would recommend the hotel.

Modern clean rooms and located next to tram line. 15 min on the tram to Alexanderplatz. No complaints.
