Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Zoo Berlin
Wunderbares Hotel, aufmerksames Personal, klasse Lage, ausgezeichnetes Essen, riesiges, füllendes Büfettfrühstück. Wenn man einen Berlinurlaub plant, dann wird der erst richtig spezial, wenn man im Hotel am Zoo unterkommt.
Hot in the summer!! But ok...
So, I recommend booking directly on the hotel website cause you get a much better deal than going through any of the online travel sites, which is good!
The hotel is a short walk away from the Zoo train/U-bahn station, and there is an easyeverything internet cafe across the street, so that is convenient. The hotel is also on a great shopping street with some nice restaurants nearby (Caras for breakfast/lunch I recommend, a few doors down).
When you walk up to the hotel, you almost cannot believe its under 100 Euro a night...great lobby with cool boutique hotel like furniture. Desk staff in black...you think you may have lucked into a great deal...well, you get what you pay for! The rooms and the lobbies are in dire need of some sprucing up, although the beds are comfortable and layout of the room is clever.
But, the hallways have this trying to be cool pink & blue neon lights, which does not work! The rooms have decent beds, tiny TVs, but the killer is that they have almost NO circulation. In the summer, well, it is painful. With the window open, you barely get circulation, and although there is a small fan, it does not help much. The kicker though is that you cannot close the blinds to block out the sun if the window is open!!! So your choice is to boil, or to be somewhat more comfortable (but not much), and have the sun pouring in....its like a torture test.
I would not stay here again....bbut the location is good.
My son and I stayed at the Berlin Zoo hotel for five days in May. Our rooms were clean and spacious. Both rooms turned onto the inner yard - not a charming view from the 3rd floor, but quiet :-) The beds are very comfortable, and the bathrooms very nice - and immaculately clean. Our package included breakfast, which was very good, with many selections, including the famous Bircher-Muesli (homemade, of course). The staff - receptionists, room service and breakfast waiters - were all very helpful and kind. The location is fantastic! It is right on Kurfurstendamm, and close to metros, busses and the train station Bahnhof Zoo. A very nice choice for vacation as well as business in Berlin! I look forward to coming back :-)
Recommend without hesitation
Just returned from four night stay in at the AM Zoo, Berlin. Found the hotel to be very stylish and spotlessly clean. Our double room was very spacious,bed linen was white so there was no doubt about it's cleanliness. We were located on the first floor at the rear of the hotel, the main train line to Zoo station is adjacent to the hotel, but to be honest the noise of the trains did not disturb us at all. Breakfast was not included in our package so I cannot comment on this, I did order tea and found this expensive at 4 Euro per person, cheaper to go to one of the many cafes located beside the hotel. Staff quite pleasant and helpful, but not over friendly. A nice touch was that the hotel allowed us to store our luggage free of charge after we checked out. Would recommend and would stay there again.
Just returned from a stay at the Hotel Am Zoo. Stayed in twin room which was very spacious and immaculately clean. Beds were very comfortable, most comfortable I've ever stayed in. Bathroom also spacious with twin, bath & shower etc.
Only negative point was some music noise from main street.
Staff very helpful and very efficient. Large breakfast rooom with wide choice of foods on offer to cater for all tastes.
Pleasant bar area with large pull down t.v. screen. Ideal location nearby all shops, restaurants and some of the main sightseeing attractions. Would definately recommend this hotel.
Booked hotel direct and got best deal incl breakfast.
Great location for shopping
Great location - this hotel is very close to major German department stores KDW, Peek and Cloppenburg and other chains - Zara, H&M, C&A,etc. Lots of shoe stores and even a Starbucks! All located on Kurfuerstendam street. The area gets very quiet at night - if you are looking for nightlife you will need to head off somewhere else in the city (lots of options).
Rooms in the hotel are basic, clean, but dated (furniture, 70s style). Breakfast excellent.
Great place to stay
A great hotel in an excellent location/base for everthing you wish to get out of a city break the hotel which is on the Ku'Damm is Berlins answer to 5th Ave in New York with all the shops and resturants. The hotel is next to the underground (Uhlandstr.)and around the corner from the Zoologischer Garten station which either will take you all over the city. The hotel staff are very helpfull and speak excellent english. Whilst we did not eat at the hotel we enjoyed a drink in the lounge on the 1st floor relaxing in their leather chairs after a day of shopping and sightseing. The berlin weather was not very kind to us snow & rain but the hotel was lovely and warm. So to sum up great hotel great city we will be back no matter what the weather.
Clean, stylish, goof value!!
I would definately recommend this hotel. very stylish decor, friendly and helpfull staff and incredibly clean and spacious rooms. Breakfast had enough to satisfy all tastes...fruit, yogurts, cheese, cold meats, hot bacon / sausages / eggs etc, loads of bread and cereal...fantastic!!
The hotel is ideally located near to the "zoo" station which will get you pretty much anywhere you would want to go.
The street the hotel is on, the kudam is smack bang in the middle of a major shopoing area. We tended to go to other areas of the city to eat in the eve and esepcially liked "Prenzlauer berg" for the fab resteraunts and younger vibe!
I would def recommend a tour of the city to get bearings... "new berlin tours" was fab, they do a free 4hour tour and we also took a paying one to sachensausen concentration camp. You can get leaflets etc for them at the tourist info centre, but i would really recommend them as the guides are english speaking, really knowledgable and really bring the city alive with tons of quirky facts...
Beautiful hotel,attentive staff,great location,excellent food,big filling buffet breakfasts.If you want to make your holiday in Berlin that little bit more special then stay at the Hotel Am Zoo.
The hotel is in an ideal location for seeing the sights, proximity to transport networks and was impeccably clean and comfortable. Can't wait to go back again.

... at a cocktail bar we found and then back to bed.Given that we were both enjoying doing nothing around the apartment the next day was designated a day off. We basically lazed around doing nothing, which was wonderful, but would come back to bight us in the **** in the future! We did venture out in the evening to the Fredrickstrasse Palast to watch a big Vegas style show which was great fun. It started because Simone suggested we should see a Caberet show, given ...
Back in da old hood. Back where I was born and raised. And yet I feel like a tourist. Before I headed to the Netherlands, I have been hanging around a small town at a final stop of the SBahn in the south. Having only experienced the night live of this city back in the days, its magical to discover it during the day.
I moved into my brothers apartment in Friedrichshain and have a lovely big room with a absurdly high ceiling. My first action was ...
... pasta however after a week in Italy also.
The next day we went on a big shopping day in the middle of town. Here you really saw the contrast between East and West Berlin, despite all this time. West Berlin is like being in Melbourne, all big department stores, wealthy buildings, cafe's and restaurants whereas East Berlin is like being in the very very very outer suburbs where there is empty blocks everywhere, hot dog stands, caravans ...
... to a neighbourhood in Friedrichshain and had quiche for breakfast! We then picked up an organic smoothie and walked back to the hotel to plan our day. Once we knew where we were headed, we hopped on the subway and headed downtown. As soon as the train starts moving, a violin and accordion start playing Eastern European music. Then, a normal looking guy stands up and announces something. The music stops and it doesn't take us long to figure out that the ...
... basilica-like structure near the river. We had no idea what it was, but it looked cool so off we went. (We went the rest of the day without needing the map, but I feel we got lucky. Probably should look over things more carefully before we get to a new city.) When we arrived at the complex, we found out it was the Hungarian Parliament building. It was HUGE, but it really did look like a lot like a medieval basilica. Again, we were able to witness a changing of the guard at ...
