As other reviews state, the rooms were small but clean & had all that we needed. The staff were brilliantly helpful (Christoph especially). We would definitely stay there again. Balzac coffee shop is just round the corner if you don't want the hotel breakfast.
The location of this hotel is terrible. It's pretty far from the metro and it's far from any of the sights. The hotel is clean and was reasonably priced but it's not worth it to stay so far away from everything. I would not stay here again unless I had a car or did not need to be near the sights. The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was very expensive and there were no good bakeries or restaurants nearby to grab something to eat, so we waited and rode the metro to Checkpoint Charlie and got something there.
We loved our stay at Grand City Hotel. Were not quite sure of the area when we first arrived but once we walked through the entrance and saw the red carpet and the restaurant we were very happy with our hotel pick.
Good hotel, very nice pleasant rooms, new decor and the bathrooms are to a very high standard. I would just note that with no aircon in the rooms, the windows are security approved and hence after opening they close themselves after a while, which makes the night very stuffy with no ventilation.
the hotel is a super nice place the owner is putting money in the hotel and is improving it all the time, This is not a luxury hotel, basic and simple, the breakfast is very well done and is very good, house cleaning ladies are nice and do an awesome job at keeping the place clean... the front desk people were very nice , and very knowlegable about there job.. Over all a super nice and very affordable place to stay...
This hotel is in the heart of the city - just a 5 minute walk from Friedrickstrasse and 10 minutes at most from Unter den Linden. The hotel is very easy to get to from the airport (Tegel) taking the 128 bus and then the U6 to the Naturkundemuseum (staff sell tickets at the airport bus stops so you don't even have to figure out the ticket machines!). This takes less that 30 minutes and really isn't worth taking a taxi for given that the ticket for 2 Euros 80 covers both bus and train. The hotel is about 3 minutes on foot from the U Bahn. We were greeted warmly and taken straight to our room which is very spacious, comfortable and well decorated. The bathroom is exceptionally modern and recently refurbished - and once again spacious. The room is quiet. Breakfast is served until 11am at weekends and provides a wealth of choice from the famous smoked salmon and blinis to hams and cheeses, sweet patries and hot selection. The buffet is kept well stocked throughout the morning service and cannot be faulted. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants and snack bars in the vicinity and the neighbourhood is safe and pleasant for an evening stroll. This hotel is a gem and should not be missed. I will be booking again for our next trip.
