Holiday Inn Express Berlin City Centre-West

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We have been there for 7 nights The hotel is in perfect location near to the U bahn station (winterberg plstz) and 20 meters from bus station line 100. The breakfast is ok The only thing that is problematic is the bed, it's small and not comfortable.

Often I stay for a few nights in Berlin with my two young daughters. They request to stay in the Kurfürstenstrasse because of its location near the KaDeWe on the Württemberg Platz. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and were never disappointed! The rooms were always tidy and WiFi/ Internet available. The staff helped us with various questions and spoke excellent English! The breakfast is diverse and plentiful! I enjoy a great cup of coffee and newspaper offered to the guests. The location is ideal for all travellers and the aquarium/ Berlin Zoo just around the corner. Please consider this hotel if you plan to visit a vibrant city!

I think any review must take into account the price that is paid and this hotel offers great value for money. Some reviewers have been critical of the breakfast (overcrowded, waits for tables, no hot choices) but the breakfast is complimentary, very popular and actually the selection is very impressive. I wonder if the turnaround time might be improved if the hotel facilitated self-clearing of tables? Family rooms are not terribly big but are extremely clean, comfortable and perfectly well equipped. On one occasion we took up the offer of a free drink in the bar each for foregoing a room clean - a fair incentive! Staff were very pleasant and helpful and the location is good, within easy reach of bus stops and the U bahn station. I did notice that the hotel website offered offsite fitness facilities but I was informed that this is not the case.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The family room was not overly big, however, we spent v little time in the hotel anyway as our main aim was to explore Berlin. We enjoyed breakfast each morning, though it was very busy. There was plenty of food on offer and this filled us up! We arrived at the hotel from Schönefeld Airport- we got the Airport Express to the Zoo station and then changed and got the U2 underground to Wittenbergplatz. From there, it was about a 5 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel is really centrally located and we enjoyed a meal in the Italian restaurant on Wittenbergplatz. We also bought some snacks etc at the Kaiser supermarket, which was very handy. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to other travellers with children.

This is the smallest room ever. Seriously my closet at home is bigger. The room is clean. Now I am done with the good part. If you want a room you can turn around instead of have to back out keep looking.

Affordable. Relatively close to popular attractions, we could easily walk to Potsdammerplatz. Train stations is also nearby. The hotel room was very clean and the shower was warm. The breakfast is good. I can recommend the Berlin Holiday Inn Express for peopke traveling on a budget. KaDeWe is walking distance and so is many restaurants..

We stood at the Holiday Inn Express City Centre West for 4 nights. It is very well located and well connected to the city centre by bus or metro/Ubahn, and to Schönefeld airport by train at the close station at Zoologische Garten. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Also a complete breakfast is included. And the staff is very kind and helpful. And very important, it's not expensive, good quality/price relation. Very recommendable

Everything you could desire from a Holiday Inn express throughout the brand. Greeted by some warm welcoming staff who were keen to provide us with directions in the city and clear things away if needed. The staff who I met during the late shift were super. Male manager and a girl who I queried if the local massage places in there area were legitimate establishments. Hey, better to ask since the hotel lacked a pool or spa as with all Holiday Inn Expresses? They offered me alternatives opposed to saying that they didn't have something which is pretty key. Didn't generally aim to disappoint my expectations of IHG. If you are staying in Berlin and want a good bed (I personally find the Express beds cosier than the Holiday Inns or Crowneplazas I've stayed in) then I fully recommend you give this a go. A few staff speak multiple languages other than English or German so valuable for Spanish or other none speaking English guests.

It was a bit hard at the beginning during check in, but once Lisa, the assistant manager appears, everything turned to be excellent, very helpful person and quite a hospitality aware person, hotel is spotless, quite clean, room is not that big but everything is there, no noises heard in third floor , restaurant is spacious with a good breakfast variety, location is quite in the city centre, very good place to stay in a business trip Thanks for everybody, and special thanks for the orchestra leader, Mrs. Lisa

Nice location. Courteous staff. Good and comfortable rooms with breakfast. Bus stop is just few steps from hotel and underground train is near as well. There were no separate staff for bar and reception people doubled for that role.No complaints though!
