Hotel California am Kurfürstendamm

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

When we checked in at three o'clock there was only one person on reception which caused a back log of people. Our room was 424 which was quite a hike from the lifts. Breakfast was really good and the staff were pleasant and very helpful. Overall it was a clean but dated hotel.

Great hotel with fantastic location so reasonably priced breakfast was nice but could do with cappuccino machine and a little more choice needed but it's location is well worth considering I would definitely stay there again

Avoid it it's aweeful .On arrival The front desk employee on realising my partner was male was rude + unhelpful.We got what must be the worst room in the hotel .The toilet broken,the safe was also out of order and the floorboards In the room were so noisy it woke my partner each time I went to the bathroom I spoke to a different guy on reception next morning .He noted everything and said it would be fixed while I was out What happened? Nothing Rang reception 10 times no reply... gave up and went down to be told nobody could do anything today but that would look at it tomorrow. We have four more days here. Worst hotel I've ever stayed at

Great hotel. Room was nice and a good size, only things lacking in the room were a kettle (we took a travel kettle) and a do not disturb label for the door. The room had a fridge which was the perfect size for some milk and wine! Location was fantastic with lots of shops, bars and restaurants outside. We checked in at 8pm which was no problem. The hotel staff were pleasant and said hello as they passed us. I think the other reviewers possibly expected overly friendly or American style greetings. I would definitely stay there again.

The location is really good! Close to shopping, bars and sightseeing. The service at the hotel is really bad! The receptionist did´t know how to smile. The service was very slow. They had no idea who was the next in line. It was not like this just one time. It was like this every day! We stayed there for 4 days. And every day we sat in the backyard to take a glass of wine. It could take up to 20 minutes just to have a glass of wine. And it was like this every time. We was 11 people, and everybody had the same experience. Every day! The breakfast was poor. It is better to eat outside the hotel somewhere. The toilet at my room was dirty/had some dark spots. But it was not possible to clean it. My group had 4 rooms. 2 rooms to the backyard. Every morning (early) we woke up because of lot of people in the backyard. We could not close the window, because it was no air in the room. And no aircondition. One room was on first floor, and the window was on Kurfürstendamm. Al lot of noise during the whole night. Not possible to sleep even with air plugs. They asked for another room. The receptionist was not very friendly to them, but at last they got a new room. That room was really good! No noise. And aircondition. The wifi worked now and then.

Nice, comfortable hotel on the Kurfürstendamm, a never ending street, full of shopping opportunities! In easy walking distance of Savignyplatz and Zoologischergarten train stations which give quick and frequent journeys into central Berlin (miss one train and there's another arriving within minutes). Clean rooms, comfortable beds, decent wifi. Didn't eat at the hotel but everything was absolutely fine.

We were offered a twin bed in a room with sofa. Instead, they gave a room with two individual beds together and no sofa. Reception staff didn't care and did not provide when we complained. Worst service we ever had in many years!

The front desk personnel was very rude beside the cozy rooms.I suggest the hotel manager to supervise the front desk employers for a better job.I felt they weren't pleased to get into contact with their clients.

Booked as a city break, B&B, Staff were ok, but not very forthcoming. Toilet in the room was stained, plug in the sink was stuck, and the shower took ages to drain. The rest of the stay was ok though. Very well placed for tourism, easy journey to all the sights. If I could speak better German then I probably could have had the little things sorted which would have given abetter rating.

We arrived at the hotel and the people in the reception were very stressed and at the same time didn't care. There was a woman who was good and two men who were almost disrespectful. They looked like bad internships: shirts out of the pants, they were laughing all the time and when we came to tell that the air conditioning wasn't working they said: "ok now it's fixed it should work now". We then went to have dinner but when we came back it was even hotter and it was heating instead of cooling. Then we called at the reception and complained and they said that then it needed to be fixed the morning after when the technician was there. So the morning after we went to the reception and talked to a guy who looked like a manager and he said they would solved it: we came back around 23:00 that night: still warm, the AC was not working and it was impossible to sleep the night even though we opened the window: of course that when we opened the window we also got in light early in the morning so we could not sleep because of either the light or he heat. Now we are staying for two more nights but this is by far the worst hotel we've been to in all our trips to Berlin. A pity. Really look for somewhere else there your money will be better spent. Also the sauna was not included although that wasn't stated anywhere in their website or Agodas website (who we bought the stay from). Beware!!!
