Holiday Inn Berlin - City East Side

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

hotel is really confy, clean and neat room that seems to be refurbished yesterday. Great sleep in a comfortable bed in a sounds-proof room. good continental breakfast with fresh bread and a rich selection of cold and warm food (I would have prefer fresh coffee instead of the instant from the machine thought) e loved our morning walk along the East Gallery just outside the hotel!!!

Directly accessible from the S- and U-bahn stations, this brand new Holiday Inn is the perfect place to stay. I was there to just need a bed for the night: comfy, spacious, clean, modern. I recommend without hesitation. The walk from WarschauerStraße is down a number of concrete steps and under a bridge. It honestly feels far less threatening than you might think, but I suspect the available lift/elevator to street level doesn't actually work. The hotel has free, quick WiFi, and multichannel television as standard. BBC World didn't seem to work for me, though. Kettle and hairdryer in room, too.

This is a lovely hotel directly opposite the Mercedes Benz arena which is very handy, if your wanting to go to an event there. Being a IHG Spire Elite rewards club member, I was welcomed by lovely young lady and was given a nice welcome. I had some interaction with a few team members and found them all to be courteous, polite and efficient. I believe this comes from the top with an excellent GM overseeing operations. The room was lovely, the bed was cosy, an ambient tempreture is kept by a very good air conditioning. The hotel is modern and new. And like much of the very changing face of Berlin there is currently allot of construction going on around the hotel which is not disruptive and will add many benefits in the near future with a huge modern shopping mall and a IHG indigo hotel. I will also mention the wonderful Holiday Inn pillow menu to select your favourite type pillow, and the room was very clean and well kept by an effecient house keeping, with the rooms made up brilliantly everyday. The curtains in the room are block out, so a sleep in is possible. Dont forget to put your do not disturb sign out. If your hungry, the room service is very good, with a healthy to naughty selection of food delivered quickly and hot. There’s a nice restaurant down stairs on the ground floor with a Starbucks café as well. The Breakfast is also served here and is a Buffet and a large selection all very tasty, delicious and tempting. Overall a very nice stay, with a visit to the nearby Berlin Wall museum and exploring the eclectic old eastern side of Berlin.

As soon as I reached my destination in Berlin, I realized my trip was not long enough to experience Berlin the way I would've loved to! Nonetheless, the hotel is SUPER clean, the location is great (walking distance to the train) and a walking distance from great restaurants that offer a variety of food. It is also walking distance from a grocery store if you want to stock up on anything! Also, the EAST SIDE GALLERY IS RIGHT THERE!

Clean & modern hotel in a convenient part of East Berlin. Staff was very friendly and there’s a Starbucks inside!! Will definitely consider staying again. Only negative is there wasn’t a small fridge in the room.

We arrived very late having had our flight cancelled the staff could not of been nicer. The breakfast the next morning was excellent. We were allowed to leave our luggage in a locked room till later in the day when we hoped to fly back. It was a great location to see some of the West Berlin sites we had not done earlier. Thank you for taking us in.

This is one of the new concept hôtel of the chain. Ground floor is very cosy and kind of Aloft concept. Restaurant is nice for breakfast in the morning although you might have to share your space of a huge table with foreigners. Rooms are small but well acquainted and bed is really confortable. Did not find the pillow very confortable nor did I notice any difference between the soft and hard pillow

City center is easily accessible by public transportation. Excellent location for visitors of the Mercedes Benz Arena. Great development perspectives of the neighbourhood (shopping mall right opposite is already under construction) Breakfast is optional which is an advantage (we opted for visiting a nearby breakfast place instead). The rooms are clean and quiet. Staff is very polite. Overall a very positive impression.

I stayed here for 2 days, the hotel is perfect. Modern and comfortable. I had a problem with the airline that lost my baggage, all the staff has been very kind and help a lot to solve my problems caused by other. Thank you very much for the perfect assistance! See you soon!

Situated on the East Side close to the old Berlin Wall. Hotel was clean, standard Holiday Inn expectations. Excellent staff, very helpful to every request Excellent breakfast offer Visited during a business conference where full days and nights were prearranged so didn't get to check the local area. Saw signs for nightclubs. Didn't see any local restaurants A huge construction is taking place adjacent to the hotel though I wasn't disturbed by noise during my visit (Nov 2017) Not particularly central 13 minutes walk to nearest railway station which connects directly with Berlin Airport SXF in about 40 minutes
