The hotel was right next to the tram which made it easy to access Berlin and the hotel room was beautiful and comfy.

Good value for money

When we checked in we were not told of special price for breakfast if you booked it as you checked in. Also were not given map of local transport, both of which we heard being offered to German tourists when we visited the Reception desk later. Breakfast was good, hotel and rooms were clean, and staff were present. We paid for a room with wi fi, but this was appallingly bad, connection never lasted more than 5 minutes. Transport links were also good. I would recommend staying here. Get your wi fi sorted!

Short City Break

After driving in circles for half an hour unable to locate the Grand City Hotel Berlin East we eventually went to the Holiday Inn which turned out to be the the Grand City Hotel. While waiting at the reception we met two other travellers that experienced the same problem - this should be made clear when booking the hotel. Parking is available at the hotel at €10 per day. The local tram system has a stop close to the hotel. There are no restaurants, mini markets or bars close to the hotel. ( except for the hotels own restaurant and bar, some confectory dispensers are placed on some of the floors. ) The hotel does provide all the necessary comforts, the room was large and clean. On the negative side -The bed was way to soft and only one pillow provided. We were 3 people in the room and only two towels were provided. The TV was quite dated and the remotes batteries were flat - but it worked ! There is no fridge in the room. Breakfast was quite good.

Overall very good..

My sister and I booked in for 4 nights, and were fairly pleased with the experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean (and although we opted for a smoking room, it didn't smell smoky). Our only minor disappointments were that we were given a double room, rather than a twin (not really a problem, but it would have been nice if that had been one of the questions along with whether we would like smoking or non-smoking), and that although there was a kitchenette area (the fridge came in exceptionally useful for cold drinks during the heat!), there was no kettle which would have been nice. No real complaints about the place though - the bed was clean and comfortable, the staff were wonderful, the bathroom was lovely and clean, and the hotel is located in a really convenient place. We've agreed we'd both stay there again if we return to Berlin - this would probably be the first hotel we'd look to.

Helpful Advice

The hotel was excellent but the following advice might be helpful: 1. If you like firm pillows, bring your own; the hotel pillows are like beanbags. 2. the fitness studio is free and you can get the key from reception however there are no dumbbells, barbells, etc. 3. The UK guidebooks we had were useless for public transport systems--just ask reception for a proper map. The tram stop to Alexanderplatz is Hohenschönhauser Str./Weißenseer Weg which is just north of the hotel along Weißenseer Weg. Take an M5 or M6.

Not quite worth four stars

The hotel was difficult to find as it shared reception with another hotel and all the instructions were only for that other hotel. According to the booking confirmation, our room also included wifi but that only meant that it was possible to buy expensive internet cards from the reception and use them in our room. The location was also a bit far from the city center and due to tram network construction work traveling by public transport took a long time and plenty of changes between vehicles were needed. Overall the room was clean and quite comfortable but in my opinion the hotel was not worth four stars.
