Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in a good location close the underground station is a 5 min walk and next to a shopping centre with some wonderful shops the hotel staff are very friendly the breakfast staff came across a bit rude for that reason I've given this hotel a 4* rating or I would have definitely given it a 5* also the Wi-Fi use to work on and off

Great experience. Ideal for families, spacious room, clean, good breakfast, good service, close to underground, free parking, good price. If you want to visit Berlin with a group of family, this is a great place to be.

This hotel is very convenient for the Gesundbrunnen Sbahn, Ubahn &DB train stations, as well as the Gesundbrunnen shopping cantre. The staff are very helpful &friendly.It is fairly basic but clean with comfy beds The downside was aircraft noise & during our visit a party of noisy school children running along the corridor at midnight.

I went to this hotel in April with a college trip and it was such a nice hotel and the staff were lovely at times. The rooms were big and we had 6 in our room and we had so much space! The breakfast in the mornings was basic but still good and once we got there the staff were friendly and took us to a room were our cases were kept secure, I couldn't fault this hotel and we felt so welcome and our trip was also wonderful the hotel was also close to the underground which was good when needing to travel! This hotel is well catered for large groups and couldn't fault my stay! They had a few ground rules but this was expected due to us been a big group, thanks to all the staff for letting us stay and I would recommend this hotel to other large groups or families!

This is the third time we have stayed in this hotel. It is ideal for groups and caters well for teenagers. It has a games room and on Monday and Thursday invites a DJ The hotel staff is lovely. Wifi is not always efficient but is available in all rooms. Breafast is continental. It is about 5mins walk from the mall and U bahn. The hotel is clean. I will visit again

On arrival, I was delighted to be greeted by a receptionist with perfect English, who was extremely helpful. There was 25 teenagers and 3 adults in our group. We were located on the ground floor in the same area on a corridor just off the main reception area. The facilities were great including a gang out room in the basement which we used each night. There was also a disco but we missed both of the nights, but the staff allowed us to have our own disco with the adults supervising and making sure that the room was left as we got it, and no alcohol consumed. Great fun.

I stayed at this hotel two different times. The guy at the front desk is great, I think his name is Paul. He suggested this bar, castle bar and this Syrian restaurant, which were both great. The rooms are good, the parking is very limited, but you can park by the holiday inn. There is a rock climbing place across the street, so like after 22:00 the street parking starts to open up, so be ready. The morning breakfast is great. I didn't try any the second time, since I had an early flight. This is a great hotel and I would highly suggest staying here! Thank you Paul, you should visit your friend in Silverlake!

The hotel is about a three minute walk from the Gesundbrunnen undergroound/overground station. As you leave the station by the front entrance, look for the Holiday Inn, and walk toward it, then past it round the corner and you're there. There is plenty of shopping opportunities, with the three floor shopping mall next to the station and a number of discount shops along the main road, as well as Aldi and Lidl supermarkets. The eating opportunities in the area are more limited, mostly being of the kebab shop or food court variety. The hotel supplies a large breakfast buffet (hot food - bacon, scrambled eggs and hot dogs - only available on the weekend). The room is well appointed with a mini fridge, plus tea and coffee and a number of "snack" foods. There is also a bar next to reception. The bed was a couple of single beds stuck together and was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well supplied with amenities. The free wi-fi was OK but a bit slower than I was used to. I can't complain about the hotel. Also the staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The area around the hotel is a bit of a let down, but you can easily travel to anywhere in Berlin from the station, which I recommend.

My husband and I stayed at Citylight for one week. The rooms are basic and clean. Ours actually had twin beds pushed together plus there were bunk beds (obviously intended for families with children). There was a TV and hairdryer in the room. Wifi was free but spotty. We both had trouble accessing it on our iPhones; did better with our computers. Free breakfast is served 7- 10 am. During the week, hardboiled eggs, assorted cold meats and cheese, yogurt (regular and lactose free), bread & croissants, muesli and some other cereals, some kind of fresh fruit, coffee, tea,& cocoa. On weekends, scrambled eggs and sausage were added to the mix. We appreciated being able to have a good solid meal at the start of the day. People at the hotel were very helpful. There is a park across the street. Other than that, there is not much to do in the neighborhood- and no good restaurants but we were a 5 minute walk from the Gesundbrunnen station which had S-bahn and U-bahn trains- making it easy to get around. Although we didn't have a car, free parking was available. While we were there some large school groups were there. That created a noise problem in the evening. The staff did help to quiet them down. Bottom line- good value.

Only stayed one night. The one night was fantastic night. A lot of rules and regulations but it was fine. The staff were so warm and welcoming. Food was delicious also, great beds lovely and comfy. The rooms were so warm especially for a cold night in Berlin! Would definitely stay again!
