Historical Traveler Reviews Angleterre Hotel Berlin
Excellent base for seeing Berlin
We booked via Wotif, who were doing a 3 night deal where you got the 3rd night for €10. I love a bargain!
The location is excellent - directly outside the (very quiet) Kochstrasse metro station and perfect for the Checkpoint Charlie musuem. The metro system is very good, so if you don't want to walk, this is ideal for getting around the city. We walked up Friedrichstrasse and back a few times - which is good for places to get a drink and some good shopping (especially Gallery Lafayette), and at Friedrichstrasse station you can get S (surface) as well as the U (underground) trains.
Anyway, back to the hotel. We were on floor 8, and I was concerned about the water pressure issue raised by other reviewers. No problem at all, and the hotel was packed, so assume this problem has been rectified now.
The rooms are clean, air conditioned (thankfully given the 30C+ temperatures outside) and spacious. The bathroom was well appointed with a bath, an over the bath shower and other essentials. Satellite TV with CNN, BBC and Sky news, plus the usual selection of pay-for movies etc.
We did not have breakfast, so can't comment on the food. All I'd say is that €15 each is expensive when there are so many cafes, bakeries and delis within a 5-10 minute walk.
The Commonwealth Bar was more expensive than others in the area, but nice to sit at tables on the pavement late at night knowing you don't have more than a few feet to walk...
I would definitely stay here again, and would gladly recommend it.
Great hotel - no complaints
Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were on the 7th floor. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean. No problems with water as previously mentioned. We didn't take breakfast at the hotel, as we wanted to get 'out and about ' as much as possible. We did have a drink in the Commonwealth Bar which was very relaxing.
Great location! Underground station right outside the door.
We enjoyed a late night coffee at the Cafe Adler, just feet away at Checkpoint Charlie before retiring at night! Hope to stay here again one day.
We have just spent 3 nights at the Angleterre. The location is very close to Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum and the main shopping district on Friedrichstrasse. There is an underground stop right outside the hotel and you can travel easily round the whole city - I would recommend buying a Welcome Card from the hotel staff purely for this reason. Don't bother with the €15 buffet breakfast as there are lots of cafes worth exploring. For example, if you walk past Checkpoint Charlie and turn right there is a little cafe called the East Side Cafe where you can get breakfast and really good Milchkaffe!
The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel bar is a bit expensive and with a whole city to explore not really worth it.
We stayed on the 4th floor and although the water pressure was okay you had to turn the temp up to max to have a decently warm shower (but lots of good hotel freebies incl earplugs!!).
The only downside about the hotel would be if you come out and turn left you're heading down towards Kreuzburg, which doesn't look like a great part of town.
Good Deal at the Angleterre
We stayed at the Angleterre for 3 nights in Feb 2006. We got a good deal off bookings -256 Euros for 3 nights in a deluxe room. We had room 810 on the 8th floor. It was really unusual-long and fairly narrow with windows facing towards the sky. We thought it was great.
Previous posts about the water pressure are accurate. In the mornings, at times, there was virtually no water at all. However, later in the day, the water pressure was fine.
We didn't have the breakfast as it wasn't included in the price but there are plenty of places locally to get something to eat.
We will definitely be returning to Berlin and may well stay at the Angleterre again.
Great value for money
Just stayed at the Angleterre for 3 nights. Staff were helpful and friendly, rooms comfortable. Good location - tube station just outside. Buffet breakfast excellent. Berlin is a fascinating city and if you plan to go would definitely recommend this hotel.
Located just in front of the tube-station and in walking distance to nice shops like Gallery Lafayette, Quartier 206 and the famous street "Unter den Linden" with the Brandenburger Tor.
Room was quite nice, breakfast buffet okay.
We had each morning + evening problems with the shower. There was just a little bit hot water or even no water at all. After complaining at front desk, the employee told us, that "they know that there is a problem with water pressure if there are lot of people using shower". Not acceptable for a 4 star rated hotel in Germany ! If you book accommodation, ask for a room in the first 3 floors, than maybe this doesnt occur.
We will choose another hotel for next visit in Berlin
An amazing holiday
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The room was very modern and the bathroom especially luxurious with a wet room type double shower. The key card room entry worked brilliantly and was handy to carry arouind.
The location of the hotel is ace!! Geta 2 or 3 day travel card and you are away. The U-Bahn station is directly outside the hotel and the system is easy to use and efficient.
We had a great time and would love to go back.
Summer break in Berlin
I stayed for four nights in this hotel and everything was fine. The rooms were clean & comfortable, with all the amenities you would expect in a modern hotel.
It is only 100m from Checkpoint Charlie and is located beside the Kochstraße U-bahn stop (U6)(most of the maps aren't very specific on the hotel's location).
No room in the inn
Turned up after a taxi ride from the airport only to be told that there was no room for us, this after my mate was rung up the week before to confirm our room. They arranged a taxi to a 'sister' hotel on the other side of Berlin out of the centre of town and gave us a free beer each. But while we were waiting a German group came in and got rooms alright which grated a bit. They did throw in free breakfast with the sister hotel (Adrema Hotel) which was OK but probably only 3 star in standard.
A very loud disco until 3am!!!
I stayed at this Hotel 3 nights during the International Travel Fair 13th, 14th and 15th March. Room clean and bathroom OK - Internet service not working on the television set (Not corrected during the three day stay). Front desk - good, concierge (Willhelm) very helpful.
Breakfast very overcrowded (apparently they had shut one dining room on the Monday morning - why, when the Hotel was full of working conference delegates?).
The biggest disgrace and insult to paying guests occured on the Monday night - on retiring, there was a note in the lifts "thanking clients for their understanding concerning any noise that may occur owing to a private party with live music".
Well I am sorry, but if you have a Hotel full of working delegates - you do not accept a private party with VERY LOUD music that keeps going until 3am. On complaining to reception, they said they would try and turn the music down - this did not happen. A disgraceful occurrence and the management should not have let this happen.
Stay away unless they assure you there will be no parties!!

... deeper than that. It's mind blowing to think that the Berlin Wall was only brought down 26 years ago. You can't help but admire how, after everything that the city has been through, it has grown into such an amazing place and you can't help but feel inspired by the resolve of the German people. I'm disappointed that we didn't get more of a chance to head out and experience the Berlin night life that is so famous but, hey, I guess that just gives me a reason to come back one ...
... were often told to do completely unnecessary things for the guards' amusement, such as rolling on the ground. Roll call had to be done to ensure no prisoners escape and they were all accounted for. If there was someone missing, the men would have to stay standing at attention without moving until that person was found. This could be days of standing in whatever the weather conditions were. Men would frequently drop down and die during roll calls. The prisoners learned to make ...
... and scout out my own dinner spot. I decide to visit Schoneberg, famous during the 1920s as the center of Berlin's decadent nightlife. Today it's a burgeoning gallery scene and popular spot for writers. It appears incredibly charming and I decide on a notable restaurant near a train station. Alrighty a (wo)man with a plan! I walk to the train station and wait and wait. Weird. I can't read the signs but it doesn't look good. Someone asks me a question and am guessing it ...

A new apartment building is being constructed nearby and part of the wall was removed to allow access for construction. A few weeks ago there was a huge protest to try and stop the removal, and eve. David Hasselhoff showed up to protest. One thing I didn't know about the wall was how it came down. I had heard the Reagan/Gorbachev "Tear down that ...
This morning we caught the 9:40am train to Berlin, then we had to take the Esbahn to Ostbahnhof station, where we met Barbel and Volker at McDonalds. When we arrived at their apartment I realised I no longer had my jacket, so Volker kindly drove back McDonalds and sure enough the coat was still there. Home again where we unpacked,had a cool drink at then set off for a full day sightseeing. First a tram to ...
