East Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Bright, spacious rooms are on offer practically for hostel rates
  • Clean and quiet hotel with convenient location near tram stations
  • Towel warming racks in bathrooms
  • Affordable, good breakfast at on-site New Orleans restaurant
  • Spacious, clean fitness center with modern machines
  • Guests are offered a pillow menu
  • 24-hour room service is available

Cons

  • Old tube TVs
  • Furniture shows wear and tear
  • No toiletries except an all-in-one dispenser
  • Hotel can be difficult to find (reception is in the Holiday Inn)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The 317-room Grand City Hotel Berlin East is a value option away from the city center. This clean, quiet hotel offers bland rooms and suites with almost bare walls, simple furniture, and old tube TVs. Decor may not be a priority for the guests who choose to stay here, though, as these rooms are available at practically hostel rates. Bathrooms in standard rooms have tiny shower stalls, but upgrading to a suite provides more space. Perks here include a bright, modern fitness center and a location that is close to local tram stops. With 24-hour room service and an affordable breakfast at the on-site New Orleans bar, this hotel is a good pick, but it can be a little difficult to find and there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a nondescript neighborhood well east of Berlin Mitte

The Grand City Hotel Berlin East is in a remote location, which helps to explain the surprisingly low rates. It's a short walk to the S-Bahn, connecting guests to the city center in about 10 to 15 minutes. The surrounding area is rather bland and offers little in the way of grocery stores or shops, let alone restaurants and nightlife. It is safe, though, and since trains run 24 hours, is never too hard to reach.

  • 29-minute drive to Schonefeld Airport
  • 37-minute drive to Tegel Airport
  • 17-minute drive to chic Prenzlauer Berg
  • 18-minute drive to Alexanderplatz
  • 22-minute drive to Checkpoint Charlie, a former border crossing from East to West Berlin
  • 23-minute drive to Potsdamer Platz
  • 23-minute drive to Brandenburg Gate
  • 23-minute drive to Unter den Linden Boulevard
  • 24-minute drive to the Museum Island
  • 25-minute drive to the Tiergarten
  • 25-minute drive to the Bundestag
  • 29-minute drive to Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
  • 29-minute drive to the Berlin Zoo
  • 29-minute drive to shopping along Kurfurstendamm
