Grand City Hotel Berlin East Rating: 3.0 Pearls East Berlin, Berlin, Germany

December 31, 2016 – 05:32 pm

Pros

  • Clean and quiet hotel with convenient location near tram stations
  • Affordable, good breakfast at on-site New Orleans restaurant
  • Guests are offered a pillow menu
  • 24-hour room service is available

Cons

  • Furniture shows wear and tear
  • No toiletries except an all-in-one dispenser
  • Hotel can be difficult to find (reception is in the Holiday Inn)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

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.

Location

In a nondescript neighborhood well east of Berlin Mitte

The Grand City Hotel Berlin East is in a remote location, which helps to explain the surprisingly low rates. It's a short walk to the S-Bahn, connecting guests to the city center in about 10 to 15 minutes. The surrounding area is rather bland and offers little in the way of grocery stores or shops, let alone restaurants and nightlife. It is safe, though, and since trains run 24 hours, is never too hard to reach.
