Superb location, views, service and breakfast. Rooms are a bit basic but unique in their own way, and the view over the zoo makes up for a lot. Try laying down on the hammock after a long day and watch the urang utans do the same, it's a crack. The front desk service is the best I've seen. The only downside is the lack of coffee facilities in the rooms.
I had a really nice time staying the Bikini. My room was really nicely proportioned with a beautiful view to the ZOO. This though also meant that you can't refrain from hearing the animals (birds in particular) which in some ways are charming but for other more sensitive souls without a doubt distracting. The hotels absolutely star is the restaurant on the top accompanied with a great bar. Whether I had breakfast/lunch or dinner I absolutely loved the Israeli family owned NENI. It was a great stay and I would absolutely consider going back.
Best stay ever - cosy, stylish, urban. Wonderful view of the zoo from our room and from the restaurant. Delicious breakfast with omelets, eggs etc and a nice buffet. The staff was always very helpful and service oriented. We also enjoyed the sauna, the lounge area and the Monkey bar.
Stayed here for three nights and overall we we’re definitely not impressed 🥴 (although we specifically chose this place because of recommendations) An example of the bad service: The second night the ceiling lamp broke, and we called the reception as there was no light in our room. They said that they would bring a lamp and brought back a tiny desk lamp that made no difference, they said that a technician could stop by the next day?? (after we checked out!) So basically no suggestion on how to solve the situation… Night came and it’s was very dark in the room, so called reception again and they said that they could bring 2 more lamps. I asked for a blowdryer as well as my girlfriends hair was wet after a shower (in the dark) The receptionist said”we will bring it right up” (2 lamps and a blowdryer) But no one and nothing ever came! The next day when we checked out and mentioned this, but no compensation for spending a full evening/night in the dark! And showering in complete darkness. And apparently you need to bring your own blowdryer to a 4 star hotel?!?? Also the minibar was none existing! There was a sign saying “everything in here is free” which was 2 botlles of water and 2 beers 😂 Well fair enough, other than it was a one time thing, so they did not refill the fridge the next couple of days, so it was just empty! 😊 I believe everybody would have preferred to pay for a regular nice service mini bar with a decent selection! And refill of water bottles and snacks (at least just water) So all in all not impressed, it wasn’t terrible, but for that price you can do much better elsewhere! And the service was historically disappointing! I don’t think they did much to update any of the facilities the last couple of years, and that probably why they have had a lot of nice reviews earlier on. Berlin is amazing though! 😊 So fortunately we had a great trip despite of the hotel experience 😅…
Love the spacious jungle room overlooking the zoo, with a small but comfortable desk to work at and real plants. Playing my own music with the Bluetooth speaker, I felt at home right away. Emily at the restaurant made this stay unforgettable as she asked the kitchen to make vegan Milchreis (it takes over half an hour) by the next day. Without having to ask for it, she recognised me next morning at breakfast and I got the change to try this German breakfast dish!
What a nice Place to stay. We've enjoyed ourselves a lot. EverYone was friendly, also to our dog. We had a great view, overlooking the beautyful Tiergarten. Big thanks to the Team. We'll be back soon.
Marc, Majeeb, Sandra...it`s simply the people who gave our stay in the hotel it`s unique momentum. It didn`t feel like a stay in a hotel but rather than staying with friends. The rooms are uniquely designed; the view over the berlin zoo is (and sounds) like a jungle cruise in itself; the Monkey Bar and the Neni restaurant have already built up their own reputation of excellence. We`ll come back.
Super friendly staff, great decoration and outstanding breakfast buffet. Not to mention the location, very central and easy to go anywhere in Berlin, with connection to main public transport. I definitely recommend and plan to come back many times.
Berlin is not Germany and 25H Bikini is not usual Berlin hotel. For all that are bored by predictability, here we go. It does not want to go above 4 stars, because its main goal is to be as relaxed while at the same time professional. Rooms are pleasant (but opt for a larger one especially if staying for more than one night). Street view is nod bad at all. I guess that in spring and summer ZOO view is advantageous. Breakfast is superb and I should not forget Monkey bar that is all the time full, offers great cocktails and live DJ. Excellent four days.
One of the best hotels I have visited also great location with many options it’s also clean and I wasn’t disappointed by the place and area and the service was great. Kind people working here and they are looking forwards to help you. Would recommend it
