Historical Traveler Reviews Berlin Mark Hotel
Far exceeded expectations and very convenient location
We stayed here (Wife and kids 15&17) for three nights in Mid February. This is a very convenient location and rooms far exceeded my expectations. Look no further for a comfortable outstanding value than the Berlin Mark Hotel (Rooms were 45 euros/night) The previous post had good ideas concerning transportion throughout the city (#100 and #200 Bus). The German transportation system is excellent and inexpensive. We bought a Small Group Day Ticketfor up to 5 people (Kleinesgruppentage Karte) for 14.80 Euro/day for unlimited travel throughout the city on all transports. This included the Airport Express from Schoenfeld Airport.
Sights to See:
1. Berlin Zoo - Excellent Zoo with Giant Pandas and many playful bears. This may have been our highlight.
2. Reichstag - Very easy tour with many good views from the Dome. (Free admission)
3. Fernsehen Tower (TV Tower)- eat a small lunch or enjoy coffee from the top.
4. Checkpoint Charlie- Walk down Friedrichstrasse and see all the High Fashion Shops and then stop by the museum.
5. Take Train to Olympiastadium - Walk around field where 1936 Olympics were held and upcoming 2006 World Cup will be played.
6. Try to get a walking tour of City- very informative and explains where the wall used to be.
Overall a great place to visit for 3 days.
Great hotel - outstanding bargain
My wife and I stayed here for two nights. Overall experience was excellent. Staff was friendly and spoke English, room was spacious and clean, everything worked well, clean bathroom with good hot showers. We have stayed at many hotels throughout Europe over the past four years and this hotel definitely provided the most bang for the buck - and in the heart of Berlin! Normally I would pay at least $120/night for this nice of a room - and even then it would not include breakfast. The breakfast spread was outstanding - bacon, sausages, scrambled or hard boiled eggs, bread, cheeses, meats, yogurt, cereals, fresh fruit, all the good german coffee you can drink, fresh juices.
The hotel's location couldn't be better - especially if you are travelling to Berlin on train. It is just a few minutes walk from the Berlin Zoo train station to the hotel. You can get to anywhere in the city cheaply and easily on subway or buses from the Berlin Zoo station. The main sightseeing bus (#100) that goes to all the main sights in the city leaves from Berlin Zoo station every ten minutes. There are many excellent and inexpensive restaurants within a ten minute walk of the hotel (the Hard Rock Cafe Berlin is less than 100 feet from the hotel, but that isn't my type of thing) There are also several good jazz clubs within a short walking distance.
Bottom Line: you can't go wrong staying here. recommend booking through expedia in USD.
Very enjoyable stay
I was also rather nervous of staying at this hotel, given some of the poor reviews, but my husband and I had a lovely 4-night stay in the Berlin Mark hotel.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable, quiet and well-fitted out and the breakfast provided a more than adequate selection. Safety deposit boxes were provided free of charge at reception and depositing any valuables, passports etc. there gave us complete peace of mind.
The hotel is in a good location with the sightseeing bus leaving from the bottom of the street and it's convenient to shops and restaurants/cafes and also public transport. We got an exceptionally good deal for the hotel and were not disappointed. Would definitely recommend it and would use again.
Fantastic deal at a great hotel and great location
Just spent a long weekend at The Berlin Mark Hotel. I was a bit nervous having seen previous reviews but had to say we had nothing but praise for the hotel and the staff. The rooms were spotless and lovely clean bedding and towels. Nice big rooms with facilities similar to Holiday Inn. Plentiful breakfast on spotless table linen all inclusive in price.
Reception staff were most helpful and offered to book a show etc if we required. They also gave useful information for train times etc.
All in all a very pleasing weekend at the Hotel Berlin Mark. Highly recommended!
Warning !! We got robbed in our room!
My brother and his wife got robbed while beeing in me and my wifes room. They were in our room for approx 30 min. When they got back someone had gone into my brothers room, taken his leatherjacket, his wallet, and his wifes handbag. Someone with a KEY had been in the room. The hotel staff didnīt care at all. Just shook there shoulders. The staff were rude, ignorant and didnīt care. No help at all. After 10 minutes arguing with the staff, another couple came down and told the same story - been robbed too!!. No refund, no compensation, no nothing. Avoid this hotel at any cost!! By the way, the breakfast was also horrible. A lot of smokers, and very very little to choose from ! No safety boxes in the hotel. (i wonder why...)
Been traveling all around the world - this is far the worst hotel ever.
Finished up here by accident!
We originally booked with Expedia for the Mark Apart Hotel, which is under same management but is not the same hotel. But on arrival at that hotel we were told that they had made an error and booked us at this hotel. This was definitely not a good start to a holiday, considering we had to carry luggage for 300 metres to our new booking! But this turned out to be a blessing in disguise, given that the Berlin Mark Hotel is more central, being 2 minutes walk from the Ku'damm, & with 2 underground stations nearby. The hotel seems to be a well-kept German secret; most other guests seemed to be locals and prices are very reasonable. Rooms average but clean, though ours turned out to have 1 double & 1 single bed (having previously specifically requested to have a twin not a double room). Also, the light fitting in the room hallway was not in place, with the electricity cable dangling overhead beyond reach! Breakfast is typically German, but good.
The Mark was just fine
I stayed at the Mark for four days in November. The rate through Expedia was good and the location was excellent - easy walking distance from the Bahnhof Zoo, just of the Ku'damm. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was a good, full German buffet. This is a no-frills economy tourist/business hotel. My room was clean, functional and comfortable in the basic European sort of way. It's not a 'character' hotel, but then I wasn't expecting it to be. I wouldn't say this is an outstanding choice, but on the other hand if the rate was right, I would certainly stay here again. And I wouldn't be put off by negative reviews -- I chose this hotel based on positive reviews in TripAdvisor and I wasn't disappointed.
Dirty not as expected
Booked a double room only to arrive and find it two singles in a dirty, grubby room. Complained about room but told that as they where full nothing could be done. Desided not to stay and made sure there was no charge. At home checked my credit card statement and found they had charged me for the full stay.Complained to Hotel but everyone I needed to speak to was either busy or not there. I then contacted my credit card company and after a few weeks they obtained a refund.
Months prior we had booked a double room, when we arrived we received a twin. We complained only to be told no double rooms were available. We might have stayed if the room was not as grubby as it was. So we checked out and stayed at the Hotel AM Zoo (right on the main drag two mins away from Berlin Mark Hotel) all I can say about the AM Zoo is FANTASTIC - beautiful rooms and also very large, great staff, no noise whatsoever (and we went for New Year!!), and CHEAPER than the Berlin Mark. Guess where we will be staying from now on? Definatley NOT the Berlin Mark.
Very nice hotel just a short walk from Kurfurstendamm and Bahnhof Zoo. Friendly and helpful staff, plentiful breakfast, and spacious, quiet (business-class) room make this a great place to stay in Berlin!

... got off the train and headed straight to the info desk where the lovely lady gave us a map and told us what train to get to get to our hotel. We found our hotel and checked in. Our room was sooooo nice! Too fancy for us ragamuffins! Later we went out for dinner. We were starving so we went to a place down the road called Palm Beach. We got some yummy chicken strips with honey mustard dipping sauce mmmmmm and nachos. After we'd sufficiently stuffed our faces we headed home and passed ...
... Alexander Platz. This is a large square that had been the centre of Berlin life for centuries. Under the Soviet influence it was redesigned and is now a transport and shopping hub. It also hosts the Fernsehturm - the television tower that is the second tallest structure in the EU. It is huge!! Along the way we passed museums, galleries and the Bauhaus Archive. The Bauhaus was a major influence on the modernist movement in the 1920's and 30's and the ideas they adopted ...
... held a tribute to the men and women that died trying to cross the wall in an attempt at freedom and reunite with family and friends. I never realized how recent these events occurred until doing some research while in Berlin.
To finish our time in Berlin we headed to the East Side Gallery. If you are unfamiliar it is a long strip of street art on a long cement wall. Most of the art is searching for peace and freedom but also in memory of those who lost their lives. ...
I received an SMS on my telephone today which told me that my visa was ready to be collected. Yay! Marc came over this morning to lend us his scales and some silicon for the bathroom. The scales were for Paul to weigh his luggage for his trip home and the silicon was also for Paul, so he could fix the step into the bathroom which I somehow managed to shatter whilst ...
... and I spent most of this day just walking around really and eating more German sausages (a must try in Berlin!). We then finished our journey in Berlin as we took the overnight bus to Amsterdam. Once again, it was cheaper to take the overnight bus for only 50 Euros. Bus ride was about 12 hours long but there was ************e in the bus so everyone had a whole row to themselves which was great to lay down in and create a little bid. Bye bye Berlin! Next stop ...
