Just great for a city break. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the room just right (we had a room at the back of the hotel which was very quiet), plenty of choice at breakfast and hard to think of a better location. Not only near the train station which services the airport but also the underground, plus within...

The hotel is quite OK with nice rooms and a good standard of comfort, and the location is ideal for tourism as it is within walking distance from more or less all shopping, sightseeing and dining you could desire. However, seen from a business standpoint, the hotel will not find me as a guest in the future, as the internet...

Charming Hotel on famous Kurfuerstendamm. The room was a bit small but the location can't be beat. Walking distance to subway, restaurants, KDW, Hardrock Cafe and downtown. Breakfast was great + there was a nice restaurant/bar on site with outdoor and indoor seating. Parking garage!

Hotel California is an excellent option when staying in Berlin. Very good location, 2 minutes to subway station Uhlandstrasse, from where, practically in no more than 15-20 you can get in any part of the town, even the east side. Kufuerstendamm is a lively street, many shops, caffes, restaurants with different specialties (italian, chinese,indian,thailandese etc), souvenire shops and many, many...

Very well located hotel. In the heart of the biggest and more fashion avenue of Berlim. One sightseeing stop just in front of the hotel. Nice staff. Confortable rooms. Great breakfast. Free Wi-fi available

Really impressive façade on the Kurfurstendamm! Get behind the frontage and you will find tiny, claustrophobic rooms with very high ceilings, windows that will not open and late night front desk staff that seem to understand neither English or German. Breakfast was passable (just), but coffee ready made in thermos jugs was awful, gritty and luke warm. Long, windowless corridors,...

I stayed at this hotel for three nights and loved it. My room was very large with a good size bathroom too, and very clean. Staff was welcoming and helpful in every way, and the breakfast is to die for! Location is right on Kurfurstendamm with the bus to Berlin Tegel airport just a few steps away. For Shönefeld you...

This hotel used to be Warwick Hotel California; I ended up here after leaving Hotel Domus Berlin in a huge disappointment. California is an excellent option in the best location in Berlin. Nice and large rooms, I got a great rate being that I was told by a Berliner friend that it is usually much more expensive at other times...

This hotel has a perfect location for visiting the sights of Berlin. From Kurfurstendamm you have U bahn station, buses and taxi all close by. There is a number of shopping centers close by and Ku'damm is ideal for shopping. Several nice restaurants near the hotel. The hotel seems to have an old wing and a new one. We stayed...

This hotel has one of the best locations in Berlin if you are a tourist or come for business. However, the service is so bad that it makes it not pleasant at all to stay there. Reception (in most cases) staff does not really care about guests and look tired and impatient when been asked for help. Breakfast is even...

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
