Wilmersdorf, Berlin, Germany

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Excellent location near great shopping along the Kurfurstendamm
  • Modern rooms with playful, stylish design including bright striped carpets
  • Room amenities include windows that open and flat-screen TVs
  • Sleek, inviting public areas including a small fireplace and patio dining area
  • Sunny, appealing, jazz-themed breakfast area (fee for breakfast)
  • Location surrounded by dining options, cafes, supermarkets, and sites
  • Good value for travelers on a budget

Cons

  • Some complaints of poor air conditioning
  • No toiletries provided beyond an all-in-one dispenser
  • Tiny elevators
  • No alarm clocks in rooms
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Very small twin rooms

Bottom Line

The Grand City Hotel Berlin Ku'Damm is a mid-range option with spare amenities. There are some signs of age in the building, but for the most part everything looks fresh and clean. Quiet rooms are considerably more modern than at sister properties within this small chain -- rooms here have flat-screen TVs, a playful, modern design, and updated bathrooms. The sleek, jazz-themed breakfast area is appealing, as is the patio dining area and the small lobby fireplace. The biggest perk here is the location. The hotel is close to Berlin's best shopping along the Kurfurstendamm and is surrounded by dining options and cafes.
