Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten

... thought it would. It is a city that has been through more death and destruction than any one person can imagine. Many if not all the city centre buildings were destroyed during the Second World War. There is construction everywhere as they are continuously rebuilding the east side of the city that was left in the 1960's when the wall went up in 1961. They are still trying to rebuild everything even 23 years after the Cold War. After a long day in the ...
... and you seemed the be engulfed in them as well as being disoriented (even though it was grid like) all symbolic to the treatment of the Jews. It was special especially because it was in the middle of the city and thousands of people would walk past it everyday and it could act as a constant reminder. We found Berlin to be really good at owning its history. The most significant place (we felt) we visited was a dirty carpark down a random street. It turned out to be the ...
... by a non-existent country. The tour then made its way to the remaining Berlin Wall; hearing about the death trap in between the two walls was mind-blowing. It’s really crazy to believe that the wall was still up when David was born. We also stopped by the site of Hitler’s bunker and heard the story of his last days and that of the people that came into power after him. I think Berlin handled this site very well; there was a small sign with ...

I download a lot of music from their on-line store so it was nice to buy some CDs without having to do the whole ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten
Great location and comfortable hotel
I just got back from three nights in the hotel, sharing with my two children.
Don't be put off by people saying the hotel is out of the way: it's not. With 3/4 S-Bahn lines serving the Tiergarten station which is literally across the road you can be in any of the stations in Mitte in 10 minutes tops and Zoo Station is the next station in the other direction. Potsdamer Platz is only one change of train away (20 minutes should do it). So I think it is in a great location for getting about the city and to and from the airport (S9).
The rooms all seem to be a standard size and confortably fitted our needs. I only wish they had more than CNN & MTV in english (this is a problem with many hotels in europe) as the children would like something to watch.
We got a great deal of €89/night including breakfast: which set us up for the morning: do check out the Accor group web site for different deals. The choice was very good and the breads were lovely.
We had dinner the first night in the hotel and I was really pleased to find a good kid's menu. It had a number of choices including real dishes (not just nuggets, etc) in child portions, topped off with icecream and an apple drink, all for €4.90! The adult choices were good as well, only down point was €6.00 for a small glass of wine: half bottles would have been good, since I don't like beer.
All in all a very clean, confortable hotel with friendly and helpful staff. I would stay here again.
Traumhaftes Hotel in Toplage
Wir verbrachten in den Sommerferien zwei Nächten im Novotel Berlin Tiergarten und waren völlig begeistert. Das Personal des Hotels war ausgesprochen zuvorkommend und die Zimmer entsprachen in jeder Hinsicht unseren Vorstellungen. Das Hotel liegt unmittelbar am S-Bahnhof Tiergarten und so hat man alle Möglichkeiten für Exkursionen. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist ausgesprochen umfangreich und wird liebevoll und stilvoll serviert. Der gegenüberliegende Tiergarten mit seinen Biergärten ist für einen abendlichen Bummel leicht zu erreichen.
Very comfortable ..but a little out-of-the-way
just returned from a 2 nite sat at the novotel, tiergarten. a friendly modern hotel, the standard room was very nice with a very comfortable bed. the only downside is the location which is not so central - a 15 min walk thru' the tiergarten will bring u to the brandenburg gate. the park inn, alexanderplatz or the radissonsas are probably more central. however the s-bahn stn is right beside the hotel which is handy. there's very little in the immediate area of the hotel apart from the stn and burger king. a word of warning - berlin is much bigger than i expected - a w/end stay is not enuff to see even half the city as the sights are quite spread out and u will spend half the day on public transport (very efficient) getting around. if u are arriving/departing from schonefeld a/port, the S9 stops at tiergarten stn (very handy!). overall i wud recommend this hotel.
Stayed at the Novotel Dorint Tiergarten with my family for 3 nights. I visit Berlin 3 to 4 times per year, so I know quite a few hotels in this city. Most hotels in Berlin are clustered around the Ku'damm in the West or around the new Berlin Mitte (around Potsdamer Platz); this one however is an area where you will find no other hotels. This is by no means a disadvantige. The S-Bahn station Tiergarten is right next to the Hotel. Ku'Damm, Europacenter, and many other attractions can be reached by foot in about 15 to 30 minutes (a nice walk through the Tiergarten with glimpses of the Zoo and Canals). There is a major road (Strasse des 17. Juni) in front of the hotel, so the rooms towards the front can be a bit noisy if the windows are opened.
Nice reception, friendly staff and as a nice added touch there is one of Berlins best Flea Markets right outside the door (I think its only open on Sundays and maybe Saturdays). Breakfast is average but ok for this hotel category and 19 Euros. Overall a pleasant experience and highly recommended.
I just returned from a 3 day's stay in Dorint Novotel Am Tiergarten
and I was very impressed with the standard of this hotel. As a frequent traveller in germany I always stay in Dorint Novotel's if it's possible and this is one of the very best.
The hotel is very new and everything is shinning. The staff are very professional and pulite.
The hotel is very good located right beside the U-Bahn and there are only 10 min. walk to b Brandenburger Tor and kurfuersten Damm.
The rooms are very good size with a extremely comfort bed, Luxury Bathroom, Sofa & Table, Tv, Aircon, Internet, Safe, Coffee & tea maker and it's all very clean.
One of the must AMAZING things about all the Dorint Novotel is the breakfast. It's is a little expensive, 17 euro's-BUT GO FOT IT!!!
The choise and quality are so AMAZING and one of the best breakfast buffet I ever had tryed.
I also eat in the restaurant two nights and again I was extermely satisfied with the quality and price.
There is also a beautiful bar and wellness center. If you are in car the hotel also provide a safe garage right under the hotel.
All in All this hotel is VERY good value for your money so if you are going to berlin, pick this hotel.
I will be back for sure.
Just had a fantastic weekend stay at this hotel slight hiccup with rooms which was soon rememdied with a complementary breakfast for the whole party (12). Would highly recommend a stay here. Ideally situated next to the u bahn.
We just spent 3 days at the Dorint Tiergarten and enjoyed it very much. It is located directly at Tiergarten S-Station, 2 stations from the new central station, so you can reach every point of interest and restaurant or bar in a view minutes. (I recommend the day ticket for 1 and 2 or a " small group ticket"-if you are more than 2 traveling together)
Rooms are quiet and you can even sleep with an open window, if you your room is at the back of the hotel (a/c is good and silent, btw).
Staff is very nice and friendly. We didn´t use the wellness area, but as far as we have heard it must be nice.
We were lucky to book well in advance, so we got their "Hot-Deal-Rate" 54,- Euro per room, but we would even stay there again for a higher rate.
If the 17,-Euro for (a really wonderful) breakfast seems to much, you can take some pastries and rolls + coffee at a bakery right across the street.
If you like Indian food, try the Maharadja, at Goltzstraße, near Nollendorfplatz. It is comparatively cheap and so good !
Modern and functional
I'm just comeback from 6 days spent in this Hotel in Berlin. It's well situated since it's few meters from central S-Bahn "Tiergarten". I payed only 59€ and i add 17€ for a GREAT breakfast. All hotel is absolutely very modern, functional, safe, clean. Room is very large with a king-size bed, big shower,separated WC, conditioned air, tea facilities, direct phone number, PC connection, silent.
Receptionist speak a good english and always helpful and smiling.
Hall is very large with 2 free PC and internet available.
At the last floor there's a GREAT wellness center with: solarium, free hammam and finnish sauna, relaxing room, a small fitness room and also towels, bathrobe, shoes, dressing rooms... it's open till midnight!
I'm sure to comeback there next time even if i suggest before to reserve it to look for a promotional price otherwise normal price is around 200€!
Maybe the breakfast cost is too high since you can eat at a lower price somewhere else and another negative thing is that close to it there's only a great park (healthy to visit), but no close bar or restaurant, anyway there's the close Zoo area and also in 3 metro stops you're in the central area of an emotional city!
A perfect hotel in a not so central area.
I stayed at Dorint Novotel Tiergarten in Berlin 21 aug 2005. This hotel opened just 2 months ago, and if you have ever stayed in a Dorint or a Novotel, forget what you know about them, - this hotel has a brand new style, and the reception area, bar, restaurant etc are all of a new design.
The room is spacious with a nice design, with both a separate shower cabinet and separate bathtub, and also have a safe, coffemachine, safe and minibar. The room was much bigger than expected, and it was quiet, both from noice from the outside and from the corridor. This is really how you would like a hotel room to look like.
Free use of internet in the reception area.
I payed euro 49 for a single ( king size bed ) booked at accor, the hotel chain's own homepage, not including breakfast.
The only thing which is not ok, is the area around the hotel; no restaurants, no bars, no shops. Taxis are fairly cheap, it will cost you € 8 to get to Kurfurstendam area. 15 min walk trough Tiergarten will take you too Zoo station and Kurfurstendam, but this is no place to walk at nigth. The hotel is situated rigth across the street of the Tiergarten station, and it is easy to get to the hotel from the airport by using the U-bahn.
