            Very convenient location with lots of great cheap resturants in very close proximity. Bakery next door is great for breakfast and vegetable shop over the road - so dont bother with the breakfast in the hotel.

            The air conditioning did not work and if you opened the window the noise of the 4 lane road outside was terrible (thank goodness for the double glazing) . Asked for them to look into our air conditioning unit and we never heard if they did or not - but it certainly wasn't fixed. Clearly the air conditioning throughout the whole building does not work, as when looking up at the hotel from the street 90% of the rooms had their windows open and in the corridors it was very very warm.

            The hotel is very well-located, just at 4 stops from Alexanderplazt. It is clean and surprisingly quiet (at least in the highest flour).

            Pillows were maybe too big and slightly uncomfortable. The wardrobe was very small for a double room.

            The Hotel was well organised, clean, with friendly staff. It was also in an extremely convenient location for shops, eating out, and for transport to both the centre and to the airport.

            It was a liitle noisy at night with the main road outside.

            the location is good, near the shopping center and metro station. The facilities is good according to the money.

            Staff is not friendly, the WiFi service is poor, the room is extremely hot.

            The area where the hotel is located is very nice and quite close to the U Bahn.

            Our room was extremely hot even after we turned the heater off. And since it is not summer yet they couldn't turn on the air conditioning. We couldn't sleep comfortably at night and had to open the windows to get some fresh air into the room but the hotel is on a busy street and it was quite noisy at night. We were told that when you book through Booked.net they only give you the front rooms; back rooms are a bit bigger (and quieter) but you have to pay more if you want to change rooms. Given how uncomfortably we slept and how small the room was, this hotel was a disappointment. .

            Location next to an underground station meant speedy trips into the city centre. Room was very clean and well equipped, representing great value for money.

            Very clean, excellent service; we were able to borrow umbrella's for €5 deposit, they had iron and ironing board we could borrow. People at the desk were friendly and helpful and the cleaning personnel even folded some of our clothes left on bed. Hotel is located right in front of Samariter strasse U-bahn and across from busy restaurant/bar area in Friedrichshain (less than 10 min walk). If I would go to Berlin soon again we would not think twice about which hotel to stay at!

          • Couple

            It was a far higher standard than a 3 star hotel. As we were interrailing around Europe we had been staying in hostels and decided, as Berlin was the final leg of our trip, that we would go with a bit of luxury for the last few nights. The rate of the hotel was extremely reasonable at only 213 euro for 4 nights. The room was beautiful and so clean and comfortable. It looked good on the website and the real thing lived up to it. The staff were very nice and helpful and the hotel offered many services that I have not seen offered in hotels before. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning on visiting Berlin (which is probably the best European city I have ever visited).

            I can't say I disliked anything about it but we couldn't seem to get the airconditioning in our room working and as Berlin never sleeps the streets were very noisy so leaving the window open wasn't a good idea. Having said this we didn't ask for any assistance with it and i'm sure if we did we would have been more than satisfied. We slept quite comfortably anyway as it wasn't extremely hot.

            very clean, good location, bike rental service very handy.

            staff very uptight and rude about checkout time. Communication in english very poor. double room did not have a double bed but was actually a twin room.

            Best Western Hotel City Ost was a fantastic place to stay for our four nights in Berlin. Right outside the tube station, easy access to the city centre, in a good location for supermarkets, small local markets and nice bars/restaurants near by. The room was cleaned everyday and even though it was in a fairly busy, lively area, the noise could not be heard in the room and fantastic air conditioning!

            The fact that tea/coffee was not available in the room, but we soon found out that it could be easily sorted by a 5 euro deposit for a tea/coffee set, including a kettle. The bar in the lobby is a little expensive.
