Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the posh shopping area of Ku'Damm

Excelsior Hotel Berlin is located in the most central area of the Ku'Damm neighborhood, the short name for the famous shopping avenue, Kurfürstendamm. Though the hotel is very centrally located in Berlin, most of the tourist attractions are not within walking distance. However, public transportation is exceptional and the Ku'Damm area is slightly less busy than its tourist center counterparts.

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.

  • 10-minute drive to Berlin Tegel Airport
  • 8-minute walk to Memorial Church or Gedächtniskirche
  • 3-minute drive to the picturesque Tiergarten
  • 6-minute drive to Mitte district for bars and dance halls
  • 6-minute drive to the Reichstag
  • 6-minute drive to famous baroque palace Schloss Charlottenburg
  • 9-minute drive to Brandenburg Gate
  • 9-minute drive to the Cold War remnant Checkpoint Charlie (at the corner of Friedrichstrasse and Zimmerstrasse)
  • 11-minute drive to Pergamon Museum
  • 11-minute drive to the indie-cool shopping district of Scheunenviertel
  • 11-minute drive to the Jewish Museum
