ECONTEL HOTEL Berlin Charlottenburg3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had a family room on the first floor with bunk beds (knew that before booking). The room was very quiet and there was more space in the room than expected. The room was cleaned by the cleaning department daily. Check in and check out were fast. A small safety deposit box was available in the room. In the bathroom we didn't have a bathtub but a shower which was OK with us. Shower needs to be used to in order to avoid water getting out from the shower "basin". Windows in our room didn't open completely. I guess that is because the room was situated on the first floor and right out of the window is a terrace (most probably from the hotel's restaurant) which makes it easy to get out of the room if you want to. This way the hotel prevents anyone from exiting the room towards this terrace. Outside the hotel there is a bus stop and 50-80 metres (right from the hotel when exiting) there is a U-bahn station which makes it very easy to go anywhere in the city. There are places to eat around the hotel and a supermarket next door. We enjoyed our stay in the hotel. We would definitely use it again.
I stayed here with a group in July. Unfortunately it was very hot when we were in Berlin and there was no air conditioning in our room. Despite this our room stayed fairly cool and we were able to open the window wide at night and in the morning to help cool down our room. The bathroom is very small but functional and the room was very clean and well presented. There was good storage space for me and my travel buddy to keep everyday items and our suitcases. The room also had a safe although we didn't know how to operate it so didn't use it. The staff were friendly and able to help us with anything. The hotel also supplied a very handy Berlin city map, which was useful for getting around. Although the hotel was not in the city centre, it was very easily accessible by bus X9 from the airport and was very close to the metro U7 which links with many other lines to easily get you around the city. The hotel is also located walking distance to the palace in Charlottenburg and the beautiful surrounding gardens, which are free to use. This hotel was ideal for us as we did not spend much time in Berlin so it was quick to get to and from the airport. It was also ideal for relaxing in the palace gardens which are close by.
Unfortunately, we had a room that you could not open the windows very much, so it was hot. The bathroom had no window to the outside, but a window into the room, so no privacy. We ended up having bunk beds for 4 people and room was tiny. Not much room to walk around or sit with our luggage taking up the little floor space. Couldn't put shower on full power because drain was slow and it would have flooded bathroom. One positive is that it is close to bus line to airport.
Booked this hotel for it's very attractive price and was not disappointed. Stayed three nights and everything was just sufficient for us. The room was spacious, clean and had the necessary amenities. We really liked that it was close to the U7 and there was a grocery store right outside the door which helped us to save a lot of money not eating out breakfast and dinner. The shower was a bit of a paid as others mentioned but we dealt with it, again, for the price we were not expecting the Marriott. Staff, despite other reviews, were friendly and did not mind our English nor our multiple questions. I would highly recommend this option for budget travelers. We arrived from Schonefeld Airport and were easily able to get to the hotel by public transport. It was a quick trip to meeting point on the east side for Insiders Tours and just as close for the main train station in Berlin.
AirBerlin put us up here due to a delay. Didn't expect much but was nicely surprised. Room was a little small. Clean and comfortable. The restaurant had very good food and the breakfast was one of the best I've had in Europe.
Berlin 15-17 March Econhotel: normal sized studio rooms. We requested a double bed and got 2 singles next to each other and both singles and different bases and sized beds which wasn't comfortable. Blankets and pillows were great. Would recommend staying here if on a budget. Buffet breakfast was pretty average. Bathroom shower good pressure only that after a shower the whole floor is wet because there is no shower base it is a open shower plan which is right next to the toilet bowl which is a bit err. Overall happy. 3 stars for me.
We stayed at this hotel in the last week of March 2017. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood of Berlin, on less than a 10-minute walk to Charlottenburg Castle. There are bus stops in front of the hotel: one in the direction of the city center while the other will take you within 10 minutes to the airport. The metro station is on a 5-minute walk from the hotel. There are many very affordable restaurants, stores, bakeries, pubs, supermarkets, hairdressers, salons (etcetera) close to the hotel as well. The staff is polite and helpful and speak beside German also very good English. Information in the hotel (manuals, signs) is displayed in German, English and Dutch. There is an information corner in the lobby where you can grab a coffee or tea or use the internet terminal for free. Breakfast is 11 euro per person per breakfast if you decide to book this upfront. If you would decide to use their breakfast option on the day itself, it will cost you 12,50 euro per person. There are also bakeries in the very close environment of the hotel that offer you excellent alternatives to their breakfast. Our room was located on the third floor and was spacious and quiet. The room was equipped with very good beds, clean sheets and good pillows and provided us great nights of sleep. However, the interior of the room is a bit outdated and can use a makeover. The room had a TV with German, French, Dutch and English channels. The room had Wifi with a good signal strength and was also free of charge. The hotel has also a restaurant with a quite attractive menu with reasonable prices and there are numerous excellent alternatives in the direct environment of the hotel. Overall this hotel offered a good quality/price ratio for spending the nights in Berlin. We paid at check-out, so no nonsense about having to pay it all upfront or to leave a credit card number. The hotel shows good faith to their guests which is very nice. We were very satisfied about our stay at the hotel.
I've never had a worst stay. First of all the rooms are out dated and look like something out of the movie The shining, but that's not the worst part. I had to ask to change rooms three times because I could hear the groups of Italian teenagers in the room below me.i could hear EVERYTHING. I slept horribly two nights in a row. The staff did nothing to shut these kids up. Also beware the staff will die before they crack smiles for you, in particular Maria was unfriendly and seemed to hate her job and anyone that speaks English. The only competent remotely friendly one was the young man with blue eyes at the front desk,
Good place. It is right in front of the bus stop and only 3 stops to airport and others places. Very convenient transportation. We asked two double rooms but it turned out with three beds. It is too big enough for two people.
Really nice hotel. Good value for money. Was not far from shopping districts, food, sites. Hotel was clean upon arrival, had housekeeping and staff were friendly and helpful to us. Would recommend and stay again
