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.

... of land and lots of construction with new apartment buildings and such. I didn't realise just how affected Berlin was from the war and how long it has taken them to rebuild.
We went to the East Side Gallery, which stretched a km or so full of different artworks that are constantly updated (every week you will find new ones). A lot have a political focus, some just of their views, some based on the history of the wall and the ...
... this stage at least half of our group are up dancing including some of the 70 year olds and they are getting the young blokes up who were more than willing to join in. Amazing what good German food will do!
Forgot to say, it seems the Germans are fairly liberal as one of our 70 year old ladies found out. On looking out her hotel window she saw a main in an apartment balcony directly opposite smoking a cigarette - stark naked! She couldn't believe it and of course we stirred ...
... the Olympic park precinct around 250,000. Still Hitler announced at one of his speeches from the lectern in the Olympic park that 1,000,000 people were there listening to him!! See what I mean about him being an opportunist!! 100k in the stadium and 250k in the park is not even half way to a million....! I've taken a photo of hitlers lectern where he and Benito Mussolini - the Italian dictator and hitlers main ally stood to give speeches. The Olympic torch relay was also invented by ...
Well it was a long train but we made it! In Berlin we are lucky enough to get to stay with Melissa's family friends, Betti & Flo. We are in Berlin for a week! Betti picked us up from the train & it was about a ten minute walk to her place from the station! She lives very central in a cute little apartment. We had a relaxing evening, some champagne, supper, and all got to know each other. It was super lovely. We went on a walking tour of Berlin and I learned SO MUCH. It was ...
... Hitler. We went via the Brandenburger Tor, a pretty iconic symbol of Berlin.
We also walked partly through the park in the centre of a Berlin. Huge and dotted with ponds and various statues - this one commemorating four composers. One was Beethoven for sure - I can't remember who the others were.
The von Stauffenberg memorial is in the actual courtyard of the building where the ...
