Just off the Kurfurstendamm in West Central Berlin
The strongest asset of the Grand City Hotel Berlin Zentrum is its location. Within steps of shopping, grocery stores, cafes, and restaurants, it is located just off the Kurfurstendamm. Several of Berlin's most popular sites are within walking distance. Overall, the area is clean, safe, and has good access to transport.
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.
