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.
