Courtyard By Marriott Berlin City Center
Travel Blogs from Berlin
After a good night sleep and waking at around 6am, not too bad, we enjoyed a great breakfast at our hotel.
Still no sign of our missing suitcase!!!
We walked over to Checkpoint Charlie to learn more about how the City was divided and then how people survived before the Wall was down. We also saw pieces of the wall as seen below. The …
I once had a great experience in Germany. I visited Berlin only this summer and was really impressed with the environment and with the culture as well. I visited the Deutusches Historiches Museum. I went their with my family, the taste of their food was quiet different and delicious as well.The people were sweet. …
The sun was shining, the imaginary birds chirping, and sightseeing was on our agenda. With all of the above ingrained in the brain, we dusted off the little used shorts and enjoyed a breakfast buffet downstairs. Once out on the streets, we found the nearest metro station and took off to western part of Berlin to redeem our tickets for the hop on, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Berlin City Center
Best buy in town
Located on the remains of the Berlin Wall. Checkpoint Charley and the Gendarmenplatz are just a few minutes away. Convenient hotel. The breakfast is great. Easygoing staff.
Stayed two nights and was very impressed. The hotel is only a year old. Good location, just a few blocks walk to Checkpoint Charlie. Not too much farther to the Brandenburg Gate. The staff is very friendly and fluent in English if you don't speak German.
Was impressed with the food in the restaurant. Decent wine list and nice bar as well. The rooms are comfortably furnished. Good beds. Laundry service was excellent. Garage parking available.
All in all, highly recommended.
I was at this hotel for 3 nights.
I've been in many hotels, but this one is the best, so far.
It's new, clean and during the night the room was very quiet and dark.
The breakfast was good as well.
I payed a much lower price via a website which, ofcourse, I may not name here.
For that and many other reasons I will return to Berlin often!
Lovely new hotel
This is a beautiful hotel, well above the standards of Courtyard hotels in the US.
There is an Italian restaurant in the lobby, but beware that service there can be slow.
The subway stop is nearby, which is good because there is not much by way of tourist sights in the area. As for local services, there are a Chinese restaurant, supermarket, and euro ("dollar") store within a block.
We liked it!
We enjoyed our stay for 4 days at the courtyard very much! The hotel was close to empty when we were there so no bad experience with the breakfast, though we were told by the (very helpfull) staff that sometimes the breakfastroom is a bit too small. All in all we loved the breakfast! Lots of things to choose, and tastefull.
The rooms are very nice, not too big & not too small. Location is good though it's kinda weird in former no-mans land; not much happening in the direct area. You can catch the U-Bahn in a 2 minute walk or walk straight to AlexanderPlatz or Potsdammer Platz (checkpoint charlie is also in the area).
They also have a little store downstairs where you can buy drinks or stuff to eat instead of the usual minibar in your room which I thought was a pretty good idea.
I visited Berlin for 3 nights in November and had one of my best stays ever in a hotel. Traveling a lot I see many hotels.This is one of the finest.
Quick check early in the morning.The non smoking room ready was for me and they provided me with the pre ordered allergic free room(nice wooden floor).
I also liked the free coffee facilities in the room as well as the free water in the fridge.
As I read in one of the earlier reviews I was concerned about the brakfast buffet, but I have to say it was a great experience.No problems at all.
Large selection of different items.
Buffet space is more than adequete
Not crowded at all.
Extremly friendly service.
Free espresso or cappucino
I especially liked the muesli.
For 14 Euros the price seems fair
I had dinner once which also was great.
delicious tuscan bean soup
but the best was the tuna steak.
It was the best I ever tasted
It comes medium grilled with rosmary potatoes.
Hotel room was very clean.
Bathroom is fine could be bigger but for the price paid, it is fair.
Nice shop next to reception for sandwiches, drinks,sweets,choclate bars,etc. It is allways open,so I could buy me a "good night beer" at 2 o´clock at night after a beautyfull evening out in Berlin.
What a vibrating city it is.
Overall: great value for money, perfect place to stay
I will be a regular from now on.
Very nice hotel. Good Location. Perfect brekfast. I will stay again.
Lots to Like about the Courtyard
I just spent 4 nights at the Courtyard and found a lot of things to like about it. My trip was for vacation and it was convenient to the subway (Spittal Markt), checkpoint charlie, the Jewish Museum, and the most of the attractions in the old east. And the Branderburg Gate and Reichstag are within walking distance if you are willing to walk 20 or 25 minutes. As someone noted in an earlie review, it is a brand new hotel in what would have been East Berlin. The wall would have gone right in front of the hotel. The room was very nice and almost completely soundproof with the windows closed.
I arrived early in the morning and the room was available. The staff spoke excellent English and were helpful. I ate dinner at the hotel twice because it was good, reasonably priced, and the staff very friendly. I did not eat breakfast there, so I cannot address the issue raised by one of the prior reviews. During the week there are places within a block or two to pick up decent coffee and pastries for a few euro. Because these places cater to businesses they are not open during the weekend so you would need to go further to find breakfast outside the hotel. I enjoyed my stay, had no complaints, and would definitely stay there again.
Pretty Good hotel, disappointing breakfast
Stayed at this brand new courtyard by marriott for one night in September 2005. It is located in a rather quite street in the eastern part of Berlin next to some embassies. Not very much going on but subway to the sights of Berlin is within walking distance. We arrived early and our room was not ready so we were offered a coffee while we were waiting. We were just about to fo upstairs to our room when we were asked to pay for the coffee. That`s not my idea of hospitality :-(
The room was just like the rest of this hotel brand new and up to date. Bathroom had a tub which was pretty modern. Also the room design was pretty modern however still moderate. The bed was comfortable as well.
There is a small excercise room and sauna in the hotel which we did not use.
We experienced the only big disappointment during breakfast. The buffet was indeed pretty small and almost all seats were taken so we had to sit at the bar. Even though the staff were doing their best the breakfast bar was almost completely emptied all the time. It was hard to get some standard breakfast items like scrambled eggs.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at the Courtyard but would not pay extra for the breakfast buffet. Try eating somewhere else instead.
Wow, I'm the first to review this hotel! I'll do my best.
Originally booked the Courtyard Berlin Koepnick, but they did not have twin rooms when I arrived by car so they rebooked me at 89euro at the City Center Facility. Paid about 16 euro per day for car parking and 15 euro per day for wireless internet. Breakfast was included, and was a very impressive spread in the main cafe area next to the front desk.
The rooms are all brand new and spacious. The decor is a little bit on the Las Vegas side, but quite nice. The hotel has a business center and a small grocery type store, but I did not visit those.
The location is quite nice, keeping in mind that Berlin is a HUGE city. I read it is 9 times the size of Paris. You are a 5-10 minute walk from Checkpoint Charlie. The hotel itself sits right on the line where the old Berlin Wall was, according to my map, placing it in the former Eastern side. You are a good 15-20 minute walk from the Alexandar Platz area. The Spittlemart subway stop is very close, but I did not use the trains.
Overall, a spotless and new facility. The only negative thing that happened to me was a fire alarm at 2am. The alarm went off twice, with an automated message only played in German. Even though this is large international hotel with many languages, I didn't feel it out of place to expect English as this is an American chain hotel. We all filed outside at 2am, waited for a few minutes, then went back to bed.
For tourists to Berlin...I HIGHLY recommend the Fat Tire Bike Tours that leave from right under the tall television tower in Alexandar Platz. They cater to the 18-26 backpacker crowd, but there were all ages in my group. The guides are all native english speakers and are very funny and in no way politically correct in their talks! Best 20 euro you can spend to meet lots of travelers and see a good deal of Berlin from a comfortable beach cruiser type bike.
I will stay at this hotel again. Very nice staff and extremely clean and modern. They do not have a pool, but they do have a small sauna and workout area.
Hope this helps.
