They must have given the same information to everyone as we ended up in the aisle with our backpacks and no spare seats to be seen but as this train was only about an hour we decided to stand, happy in the knowledge we at least had a chance to make the flight out of Frankfurt

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alsterhof Berlin
Good hotel in good location
We stayed here over Easter 05 and really enjoyed it. The front desk staff spoke English and were really helpful and polite and happy to recommend restaurants, sort taxis etc. The rooms were a good size, clean and of a high quality. The bathrroms were a bit small in the double bed rooms though. My tip would be to reserve a twin bed room. We had 4 rooms in our group, two twins and two doubles and the bathrooms in the twins were bigger. The bed configuration is the same in both types (two singles pushed together) so there's nothing to lose. Location is very good, close to the Blue Church on Ku'damm and with a U Bahn station just a hundred metres down the road. The food in the restaurant was excellent with a good selection for breakfast. Dinner was of a very high quality with execellent service and was very reasonably priced compared to what you'd pay in the UK for meals of a similar standard. I'd certainly recommend dining in at least once whilst you're there. The menu, howver, was slightly limited so we dined there twice in three nights then ate out on the third. On the down side we felt that the drinks (including soft ones) were expensive in the cocktail bar.
Overall though a great, reasonably priced hotel and one that we would certainly use again. The rating would have been higher but for the small bathrooms and lack of a pool.
A Good Find
We stayed at the Alsterhof in December 2004. It was very close to the underground station which wss very handy. The reception area was quite small for a 4 star hotel, but they were very efficient. Our room was very comfortable and had all you would expect from a hotel of this class. Breakfast was buffet style with lots of choice of both hot and cold foods. The staff were friendly and attentive.
The hotle also had its own "pub" in the courtyard. It aldso served food which was delicious and very good value.
The hotel is ideal for both tourists nd business people alike. It is about 5 minutes walk from Ku'dam.
We would certinly stay here agin.
We visited Berlin in December 2004. This is a great hotel, well situated and an excellent breakfast to set you up for the day. The staff we very helpful. Although I agree with a previous comment that the bathroom although adequate is too small (especially if you are very tall) and the pillows are neither use nor ornament - but this maybe German pillows for you. Whilst there vist the Sony Center with its own microbrewey restaurant - Lindenbrau - an excellent meal and good beer.
Great Hotel for the Price
Just returned from a three night stay at the Alsterhof. I thought the hotel was a great value for the money. The front desk staff was efficient, helpful, and spoke very good English. The rooms were nothing fancy, but they were clean and the bed was comfortable (Even though the 'double room' was really two twin beds pushed together.) The bathroom was also very clean. The hotel has free internet access in the lobby, and has a comfortable bar in the lobby to relax in. The girl working in the lobby bar gave us a good recommendation to a nearby German restaurant that was very tasty and also moderately priced. The hotel is conveniently located very close to Kurfurstendamm and KaDeWe. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have seen and tasted in a European hotel.
In sum--nice staff, comfortable, and convenient.
Hotel definitely exceeded my expectations. Would recommend to all tourists visiting Berlin. If you are a business traveler, you might think about a different hotel, if only because this one seems to cater almost entirely to tourists.
Good place to stay in Berlin
Nice hotel. Very clean. The restaurant is good. The hotel clerks speak good English and were very helpful. This place could use a full time concierge though. It is in a good location, not far from Berlin Zoo. train station. Subway lines are very close as well and you can get tickets at the front desk. The rooms are comfortable, large, with high ceilings. Some A/C would be nice but this is a European hotel. The hotel front desk gave me their own fan when the fan they brought me did not work. Free Internet and computers in the lobby. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
This hotel is jammed with tourists, blocked by buses half the time and although basically well equipped, it is a little down at the heels. Even so, it's a pretty good bet, centrally located and bearable for a huge city like Berlin. How often are you in the hotel room anyway? Rooms are standard size, hotel common areas are a bit small, desk is brainless but harmless and actually as helpful as any other busy staff. They could definitely use an actual concierge. The breakfast is superb. The location is about as convenient as it gets in the Kurfürstendamm district and it really is close to several U-bahn lines, plus to KaDeWe. We had a good stay here in April, 2004, with a few daily frustrations that included things like the safe in our room didn't operate properly, the bathroom was way, way too small and the noise from the beergarden in the courtyard of the hotel was overbearing sometimes.
Hotel was a short walk from the train station and main shopping area of Berlin. Rooms were large and comfortable and the hotel had all the facilities that you would need. Free internet access, a great breakfast and friendly staff that were very helpful and polite. Definitely a hotel I would stay at when next in Berlin.
