Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, classic hotel in West Berlin with friendly staff
  • Big rooms with flat-screen TVs, mini-bars, and fluffy duvets
  • Hearty breakfast included in the nightly rate
  • Lovely outdoor terrace for summer months
  • Cozy on-site bar for drinks and cocktails
  • Some rooms have balconies
  • Bike rentals are available
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Some hotel furnishings need updating
  • Rooms do not come with coffeemakers
  • No full restaurant on-site

Bottom Line

The simple 32-room Hotel Astoria -- built in 1888 -- is tucked away in a quiet street off Kurfürstendamm. Big, clean rooms are decorated with classic touches including dark wood furniture. A wave of recent refurbishments have introduced more modern amenities, such as flat-screen TVs and fluffy white duvets. Some rooms have a private balcony, and all guests can enjoy the communal outdoor terrace. While indoor common areas could use some updating, this cozy hotel offers an extensive free breakfast, a nice bar, bike rentals, and free Wi-Fi.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A central area of West Berlin close to transport, shopping, and restaurants

The Hotel Astoria is situated in the heart of West Berlin within steps to the Kurfürstendamm and the train station Zoologischer Garten. The bus from the airport stops just at the corner, and the U-bahn (Ulanderstrasse) is equally close. Traveling around the city via subway is cheap and easy. For shopping, guests will enjoy close proximity to the area near Gedächtniskirche. In the other direction there are plenty of restaurants around Savignyplatz.

Berlin is the capital and largest city in Germany best known for its lively nightlife (restaurants and bars stay open late), cafes, museums, palaces, street art, and historic sites.

  • 25-minute drive to Berlin Schonefeld Airport
  • 4-minute drive or 12-minute walk to Gedachtniskirche (Memorial Church)
