The trip with KU has finally begun in Berlin. The week of traveling beforehand was long, stressful, and needed. Its good to have joined with the group so now I hardly have to worry about what we are doing next. We spent a week in Berlin and it felt like it took that long to see the city. I dont know if there are any cities in the world with more …

Historical Traveler Reviews Berlin Excelsior Hotel
Stayed here in the World Cup too. Booked because I managed to get 99e price, reasonable for the money when obviously prices were high. Interal parking attractive too.
Stay away from this thing
The hotel is well located. That's all. The front desk people are extremely rude, the manager is even worse. The food is better at the local mc donalds. Rooms are old and extremely uninviting. Check the local cemitery for a more pleasant place.
We stayed at the Berlin Excelsior during the World Cup. I have to agree with the previous reviewer, that the 4 star rating is wrong. I would probably give this hotel 2 and 1/2 stars. The service desk was friendly on checkin. Our room was really small. We had 4 suitcases with us, and had trouble finding a place to put all of them. I think the hotel is being renovated, but we stayed on the 6th floor, and it was still old, maybe from the late 80's.
I stayed at this hotel and it is NOT good and definitely NOT a 4 star hotel. More of a 3 star hotel - at a push!
Very Good Hotel
My wife and I stayed in the Excelsior in September 05 for 4 nights. We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is in a good area and close to Zoo railway station. It was very clean and our room was small but comfortable. They only drawback was the windows didnt open but we had good air conditioning even if it was a little noisy. The food in the garden restaurant was excellent and we ate there every night. They also did a great breakfast with plenty of choice of everything you can think of. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The hotel was a good base for all tourist attractions. If I was going back to Berlin I would probably stay here again.
Situated 200 metres from Berlin Zoo station, this well appointed 4* hotel is excellent value in every way. Handy for all of West Berlin's main attractions such as KuDamm, Europa Center, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche etc. as well as U Bahn and S Bahn connections to the whole of the City. Group bookings will yield a substantial discount. Our party of 14 paid GBP75 per room per night including a very substantial and tasty buffet breakfast. Rooms are above average in size and are very comfortable with a wonderful modern bathroom and all the facilities you would expect from this kind of hotel - in room safe, mini bar, TV, hairdryer, etc. The airport bus from Tegel stops virtually at the door and you can use your day pass. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The bar opens late though choice of drinks is a little limited. The rooms are remarkably quiet and the lobby is comfortable, though the lobby bar does not open during the day, or at least didn't when we were there in June.
Two block walk from the Zoo Bahnhof and on a beautiful avenue close to attractive apartments and restaurants in Savigny Platz. Rooms are small and dark; hair dryers but no coffee maker or ironing board. Staff is very limited at reception and service in the bar is quite poor. Many large tours coming and going make access to front desk difficult. Phone from room; they give priority to phone calls. Breakfast buffet is OK but not elaborate. Elevators are quick and responsive. Smoke detectors and fire extinguishers throughout but doors have keys not cards. No deadbolt or chain. Keys are on large clumsy paddles. Keep with you if possible since it's hard to get them back from desk. No phone books; you have to ask at the desk for numbers. Can't understand the 4 star rating; it's definitely a three. Beware of ordering cocktails; very expensive.
Stayed here for four nights in April 2005. The Excelsior is situated a few minutes walk from Zoo station and so it is very convenient for bus and U and S-Bahn connections to all parts of the city including Tegel airport (X9 bus from the airport to Zoo station takes about 20 minutes and the hotel is close enough to walk with luggage). It is also only a few minutes walk from one of the main shopping areas. Although it is on a main road we did not find it particularly noisy. The rooms are not huge but they are clean and have TV, mini-bar and ensuite bathroom with very good shower.The buffet breakfast is excellent - fruit juice, cereals, yogurt, bacon, sausage, eggs, cheese, cold meats, fish, rolls, preserves etc. The food is of good quality and is plentiful. We also ate a couple of times in the evening at the hotel's Store House Grill - again the food is good although we did find the soft drinks quite expensive. We would be happy to stay here again.
