Tegel Airport, Berlin, Germany

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient access to Tegel Airport and transport to city center
  • Bright rooms are spacious and modern, with flat-screen TVs
  • Updated property in a calm, safe area with striking artwork
  • Single rooms are ideal for solo travelers on a budget
  • Cheery white breakfast room with flowers on tables
  • All rooms are equipped with a safe

Cons

  • Small bathrooms with no toiletries provided
  • No alarm clocks, coffeemakers, or minibars in rooms
  • Breakfast not included in nightly rate
  • Tegel Airport is scheduled to close in 2014

Bottom Line

The Grand City Central Hotel Berlin Airport is one of the more upscale, appealing options in this chain. That being said, it is still a budget property with sparse amenities. Updated, bright rooms have soothing, neutral-toned decor with modern artwork, cool furniture, and small flat-screen TVs. There's plenty of space in living areas, but shower stalls and bathrooms are tight, and no toiletries are provided. The all-white, modern breakfast room with flowers on the tables is appealing, but the buffet isn't included in the nightly rate. These 70 renovated rooms are also sometimes subjected to airplane noise. Guests who don't need to be near the airport might consider the centrally located sister property, Grand City Hotel Berlin Ku'Damm.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the outskirts of Berlin, near Tegel Airport

The Grand City Hotel Berlin Airport is fantastically convenient to anyone traveling through Tegel Airport. The area itself feels and looks somewhat suburban, but there is a convenient grocery store nearby. The metro station is about a 10-minute walk away, connecting guests to central Berlin in about 15 minutes. However, Tegel Airport is scheduled to close in 2014 as Schonefeld Airport expands service and Brandenburg Airport opens. Without convenience to the airport, there is much less reason to stay in this part of town.

  • 8-minute drive to Tegel Airport
  • 27-minute drive to Schonefeld Airport
  • 12-minute drive to shopping along Kurfurstendamm
  • 12-minute drive to Alexanderplatz
  • 13-minute drive to Checkpoint Charlie, the former border crossing from East to West Berlin
  • 13-minute drive to Unter den Linden Boulevard
  • 14-minute drive to the Berlin Zoo
  • 14-minute drive to the Tiergarten
  • 14-minute drive to Potsdamer Platz
  • 14-minute drive to Brandenburg Gate
  • 14-minute drive to the Bundestag
  • 15-minute drive to Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
  • 19-minute drive to chic Prenzlauer Berg
  • 20-minute drive to the Museum Island
