Grand City Hotel Berlin Zentrum Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Charlottenburg, Berlin, Germany

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Excellent, central location on Kurfurstendamm, a shopping main drag
  • Clean, slightly dated rooms with small flat-screen TVs and tiny bathrooms
  • Pricier room categories have much larger, more appealing bathrooms
  • Bright lobby bar is open 24 hours and serves snacks
  • Small breakfast area serves a daily buffet
  • Convenient location near transport, shops, and restaurants
  • Pets allowed (for a fee)

Cons

  • Some complaints about dark rooms
  • Standard rooms lack safes and coffeemakers
  • No toiletries provided besides an all-in-one dispenser
  • Tiny (but clean and bright) fitness center with 3 cardio machines
  • Fees for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Grand City Hotel Berlin Zentrum is a mid-range property with a great location. Rooms are clean but slightly dated, and lack basic amenities (standard rooms don't have coffeemakers or safes, and no rooms have alarm clocks). Rooms have small, flat-screen TVs and tiny bathrooms, unless guests choose to upgrade to one of the pricier room options. Its location on Kurfurstendamm, a main drag with tons of shopping and restaurants, is a real draw, along with the appealing, 24-hour lobby bar. While the red and yellow color scheme is appealing in a traditional way, a nearby sister property -- the Grand City Hotel Berlin Kudamm -- is in better shape and may be a better value.
