Pros

  • Excellent location near great shopping along the Kurfurstendamm
  • Simple rooms with streamlined decor, desks, and flat-screen TVs
  • Sunny, appealing, jazz-themed breakfast area (fee for breakfast)
  • Inviting lobby with small fireplace and leather armchairs
  • Spacious outdoor patio with dining areas
  • On-site bike rentals and parking (extra fee)
  • Small sauna and a single meeting room
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Pet-friendly (extra fee)

Cons

  • Short on features (no gym, full-service restaurant, or bar)
  • Rooms are basic and compact, and most aren't air-conditioned
  • Rooms lack amenities like safes, mini-fridges, and kettles
  • Guests complain Wi-Fi doesn't work in all guest rooms
  • Breakfast costs an extra fee

Bottom Line

The Tryp by Wyndham Berlin am Ku'damm Hotel is an affordable mid-range option with sparse amenities. Common areas are appealing -- there's a jazz-themed breakfast area, a roomy patio, and a small but modern lobby with a fireplace. Rooms are modest with streamlined decor and extremely limited amenities -- AC, safes, mini-fridges, and kettles aren't standard, and the "free Wi-Fi" doesn't work in all guest rooms. Still, guests generally find rooms clean, and they do have flat-screen TVs, small desks, and en-suite bathrooms. The biggest draw is the location -- the hotel is close to Berlin's best shopping along the Kurfurstendamm. By comparison, the nearby Berlin Plaza Hotel am Kurfuerstendamm offers more dated decor but has a full-service restaurant and bar.

Scene

Mid-range hotel with appealing, modern common areas but limited amenities

The Tryp by Wyndham Berlin am Ku'damm Hotel is situated in a long, six-story building with a modern flat gray facade and square windows. For a mid-range hotel, the small lobby offers some stylish details, like a sitting nook with boxy leather armchairs, a modern glass table with a tree trunk stem, and a fireplace inset into a white-painted brick wall. The breakfast room, too, is appealing with large-scale black-and-white jazz photos and caramel-colored bench seating. But other areas of the hotel aren't quite so up-to-date -- some rooms show signs of wear-and-tear, and in-room amenities aren't up to mid-range standards. Still, it's an affordable property in a great location, attracting budget-minded guests including solo travelers and couples.  

Location

In the posh Ku'Damm area near shopping, restaurants, and bars

Map of Tryp by Wyndham Berlin am Ku'damm Hotel

The hotel is located about a block (a four-minute walk) from Kurfuerstendamm (Ku'Damm), a famous avenue in western Berlin where some of the best shopping and restaurants can be found. Popular eateries and a thriving bar scene keep the area lively at night. While major attractions aren't in the immediate area, it's well-connected by public transport -- the U-Bahn at Uhlandstrasse is a five-minute walk and the S-Bahn at Savignyplatz is an 11-minute walk. Using this public transport, guests can get to Potsdamer Platz or Brandenburg Gate in 25 to 30 minutes. Access to Berlin Tegel Airport is pretty straightforward, about a half hour away via public transit. Berlin Schönefeld Airport takes about an hour to get to via public transit. Bike rentals and parking are available on-site, but cost extra fees.

Rooms

Modest but generally comfortable rooms -- but amenities are extremely limited

Rooms are compact and modest with little in the way of decor -- striped wall-to-wall carpeting, white walls and bedding, and light wood laminate furniture are standard. Most are adorned with modern sepia-toned pictures, lending a small decorative touch. Bathrooms are compact with shower stalls and beige or white tiling. Standards vary a bit from room to room, and some show signs of wear-and-tear or have maintenance issues. On the whole, though, guests find rooms adequately clean and comfortable, if not limited amenities-wise. 

The most frequent complaint is about the free WI-Fi, which doesn't reach all guest rooms. Some, but not all rooms, have AC, and mini-fridges, coffee/tea service, and safes aren't included. But rooms do come with desks, open wardrobes, flat-screen TVs, hairdryers, toiletry dispensers, and one free bottle of water. Room sizes include singles and doubles/twins, and upgraded rooms add space and a little more in the way of decor.

Features

Modern breakfast room, bike rentals, and sauna -- but few other property features

Extra property features at the Tryp by Wyndham are limited. A decent breakfast buffet is served in a modern, renovated breakfast room, the most stylish part of the hotel, but it costs an extra fee. Guests can also eat outside on fairly spacious patio at the back of the hotel. While alcoholic beverages can be purchased on-site, there's no real bar or full-service restaurant. There's a sauna, but the hotel otherwise lacks fitness or wellness facilities. The property also has one meeting room and a computer for guest use, and pets are welcomed for an additional fee. Bike rentals and parking are available on-site, but cost extra. The front desk is open 24 hours and laundry service can be arranged. Wi-Fi is free, but guests often complain it doesn't reach some guest rooms.
