In the central district of Mitte
This Best Western is in Berlin's central district of Mitte where many of the most popular tourist sights are located. Mitte is a big neighborhood, and public transport is often still necessary to get around from the hotel. There is a subway stop and bus route very close to the hotel but some guests report the immediate area to be a bit dodgy, especially at night. Though not considered as hip as other up and coming neighborhoods, Mitte is still home to the most dance halls and bars of all the Berlin locales.
Berlin is a vibrant city with a tolerant and spirited arts scene and fantastic public transportation. Over 20 years since the Berlin Wall fell, the German capital has become known to have something for everyone, from world-class dining and great street food to cutting edge artists and performers, and even a growing fashion scene.
The Best Western Grand City Hotel Berlin Mitte is a 166-room urban chain hotel. Rooms are comfortable and clean with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and work desks. Decor varies in different room categories, but some rooms have soaking tubs and fun design features like sheer curtains separating the bedroom from the living space, and the pop of a bright green carpet. With floor to ceiling windows, rooms are filled with sunlight. Beyond the modern rooms, the lobby looks like it could belong in any Best Western in the world. A restaurant, cozy terrace bar, and small fitness room round out the hotel features. Though the breakfast is pricey this hotel offers a central location and decent value.
