Upstalsboom Hotel Friedrichshain

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pleasantly surprised, great location and good sized rooms. Good choice of breakfast included and a fridge in the room. Rooms were quite hot as we were here in the heatwave, but a fan was provided. Walking distance to a small bar across the road, there's a nice bar at street level in the hotel, and there is a small shop selling drinks and snacks around the corner. Less than ten minutes to the overground train station. Note: most of the bars and restaurants take cash not cards. Great area as a base for exploring, so many fabulous restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Very chilled and a really lovely, friendly atmosphere.

It was our first visit to Berlin and it was great staying at this place. We wish the rooms had air-conditioners or atleast ceiling fans that can cater for the short warm period, Berlin suffers during the months of May and June. Now the good part - the hotel is well connected with trams, buses and the underground. We found the trams most convenient as these were a very short distance from the hotel. Breakfast and the service was excellent and the staff is extremely helpful. There are any number of eating joints a few blocks away.

quick access to city centre with busses trams and underground staff were amazing breakfast neat lots to choose our room was magnificent btw FREE WIFI the room was clean the beds were superb there were lifts up to the room the hotel also has a fitness sweet

For our first trip to Berlin I spent a lot of time reviewing areas and hotels and booked this one direct as it worked out cheaper than using any of the normal websites (,, etc). The hotel is on a quiet road in the busy Friedrichschain area and close to lots and lots of bars and eateries. There is a U-Bahn stop about 10 minutes one way and an S-Bahn station about 10 minutes the other way. We had a standard room, which was way larger than I expected, and clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast, which was included in the cost of the room, catered for all nationalities and was plentiful and fresh. The staff were very attentive and polite and kept everything clean and tidy. The reception staff were friendly and happy to give advice when required. We did have a drink in the bar on our first night and the staff here were friendly but we didn't return as it was a lot more expensive than other bars in the area. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We have stayed at this hotel around 10 times. Allthough there's plenty of hotels in Berlin, this is our absolute favorite. The service is kind and very helpful, the rooms are clean and everything around us customers is fine. And the breakfast is splendid. Just a small walk from Warchauer Strasse station, from where you go anywhere. The neighbourhood around the hotel is rough but full of warmth and we feel safe at all times. Also close to the hotel is a lot of restaurants and bars. We recommend this hotel for sure

We were pleasently surprised by the staff being very service-minded. The room was comfortable and clean and we really enjoyed staying there. Location was great for exploring this area and breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We would return for another visit!

The good parts: Substantial breakfast spread; quality and slightly understated decor; simple comfortable bar; neat gym on top floor and a rooftop terrace garden for good weather; very helpful reception staff; reception sells transport tickets at regular prices which is helpful and avoids having to use the slow machines on stations and trams; very polite breakfast staff; location good for using the S and U Bahn and the inner radial M10 tram route. This even runs every few minutes on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day morning. Not so good: very grumpy barman who spoilt the atmosphere of our last night; towels laundered to death and beyond and we thought were rough; incredibly rigid soap dispensers in bathroom that did not let any soap out (!); breakfast room service not managed - not asked for room number, so kitchen seemed to either under- or over-produce food. A whole trays-worth of sausages arrived two minutes before breakfast service closed one morning! Almost empty pillow cases so we had to ask for some more pillows. The bed in our room was built into a corner, why we wondered? A conventional bed along one wall would have been nice and much more practical. Cleaner(s) kept on knocking on door each morning, every morning which is irritating. You get two small free bottles of water in your room fridge when you arrive. Gosh. Don't bother. Hotel is the only one this group has in an inland city in Germany, all the rest are on the Baltic coast or North Sea coast (as far as we could tell from website).

Arrived early afternoon and our 3 rooms were ready before 15:00 that it says for arrival time on their website. Basic hotel and the rooms were in need of decorating. Our TV did not work as there was no power to that side of the room, also really hot in the rooms with no obvious means of temperature control so we had to leave the windows open on the first night. Good selection of food for breakfast, and close to the S Bahn only 3 stops to Alexanderplatz so its quite quick to get downtown. Would not choose to stay here again.

No air con in the room,no coffee and tea making facilities,average breakfast,staff didn't keep up with replenishing the plates. Unwanted wake up call every day between 07-08 a.m. made by noisy municipal garbage collectors heard in the rooms overlooking inner courtyard . Tired and mended bed clothes. 눇Good location near Warshauer Strass S-bahn ,U-bahn and tram lines ,good wi-fi,underground car parking (15 euro per day). You can buy tickets for public transportation at the reception.Friendly staff.

Lovely little place. great breakfast each day. Did dine in the evening in hose as there is plenty to choose from a few minutes walk away. there was a small error with the bill that was quickly rectified on checkout. all in all it was great.
