Historical Traveler Reviews Ku' Damm 101 Berlin
Excellent 3 star hotel
A hotel with a unique character and design to the last detail, central yet quiet. Friendly, english speaking staff. Very clean and warm rooms with heated bathroom floor and free sat tv. Rich buffet breakfast with a view from the 7th floor. Stylish lounge bar with a wide range of cocktails, some cold dishes and cool dj tunes until 2 am (perfect for several nightcaps, as late in the evening there's nothing else open within walking distance). Bus stop outside hotel, buses run every 2-3 minutes for most directions. Taxi rank across the street. Overall, excellent quality for a 3 star hotel. Would certainly stay there again.
We spent the past week in Berlin and thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Ku'Damm. The room was spacious (for a European hotel) and comfortable. The hotel staff is friendly, efficient and very attentive. Breakfast was fantastic, with a great view of the city from the restaurant. It's a few minutes walk to the subway, but there are some nice shops and restaurants nearby as well. We highly recommend it and would most definitely stay there again ourselves.
Ku damm Hotel
I was for three days in hotel Ku Damm 101, following positives reactions cited in you site and comments from Condé and Nast travelers.
Very disappointed indeed. A noisy room, a cold and non welcomed ambient, lack of any information point for tourists.
Not so well situated. At the end the price is nothing good.
A sad story
Great cheap chic hotel!
Just got back from a trip to Berlin (Nov '04), and I have to say we loved this hotel! It's fairly cheap compared to an equivalent hotel in London, and the attention to detail is great. We paid around £70 (around E110) per night for a Superior class room, which while not huge, was spacious, stylishly designed and very comfortable. The (inclusive) breakfast included the typical German breads, cheeses and sliced meats, but also had cereal and hot foods for those so inclined.
Staff are attentive and understand English; the bar is open late and perfect for a post-dinner nightcap; all in all a perfect stay!
Note that this hotel is at the opposite end to Zoo station, so your best bet is to get the bus (I think #119) from tegel Airport to Adenaeurplatz subway station, then walk 5 minutes.
New, nice & central
I stayed at this hotel September '04. A German friend recommended it. He said that it was where other Germans stay. In other words, it's not at all "touristy." The staff was so nice and helpful. I loved the decor. It was very sleek and modern. Also, there are many restaurants & shops all within walking distance.
We stayed at Ku Damm 101 for a two nights and we could not have been more pleased with the hotel. Everything is absolutely spot on; the staff, the lobby, the room, the bar and especially the spa. On arrival the staff spoke perfect english and were very friendly and efficient. The hotel itself is very hip but not uncomfortably so and our room was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Not being familiar with Berlin we were pleased to find that the location is very central with lots of great restaurants and bars to choose from within a few blocks.
I think the best measure of how much we liked this hotel is our desire to return in the very near future, and to recommend it to all our friends.
Hip and Comfortable; Staff anticipates your needs; FAB!
Loved this hotel. Clean, stylish, hip. Reasonable rates. Reminded me of The Standard in LA. Very minimalist and mid century style at the same time. Large rooms. Comfortable. Great breakfast buffet. Incredible tea selection. Take advantage of the Well Being spa with lemongrass scented sauna. Clean and inviting. I am an allergy sufferer. The staff had noted this in my file and my room was absolute perfection with comfortable beds. We were given an excellent promotional rate. We had not booked but walked in off the street and paid 91 euros a night for a spacious double w/ breakfast. You can surf the net in the lobby without charge. Very convenient for checking your email. Instead of keeping the room after the noon/2 p.m. checkout, the staff suggested we relax in the well being spa before our plane back to our home base. This was even better than going back to our room. We showered, had a sauna and laid out in the comfortable spa room. Very calming. We definitely will return to Ku'Damm 101.
Great value, very stylish
Super efficient, high-design, high-tech hotel in a retrofitted building on the quiet western end of the Kurfurstendamm -- five minute walk SBahn Charlottenburg; UBahn Adenauerplatz. Very helpful staff took care of several unanticipated needs. Rooms were purposefully austere but very clean and super stylish; wonderful bathrooms with heated floors.
Hip bar off lobby. Wireless internet to all rooms for reasonable rates.
Amazing breakfast buffet on building's 7th floor with 270 degree views of the city. Great value -- highly recommended.

... on my plane trip to Frankfurt! I was afraid I would have a panic attack, but thanks to your prayers, I didn't! Couldn't sleep, so I was dog tired! Frankfurt Airport was very different from American airports. We rode a bus out to the plane and actually walked out on the tarmac. That's where we got on the Gummy Bear Plane. While we were waiting for the plane, there was a man on the other side who ...
Today we skipped breakfast and jumped straight in the bus for another driving day. We first stopped of at Mauthausen concentration camp. Some people from the group didn't wish to go in so they stayed with the bus. John and I walked around the grounds, reading the information posts that we could in English. Many of the building had been taken down but a few were left up so people could visit and see ...
... was a 4 min walk to the main shopping road! Although not very close to the city centre. We had a little rest and were off shopping at about 2pm! Berlin was a bit less traditional and a bit more western, Australian like. Lots of clothes stores, a few fast food places we knew of and good sized super markets. We explored the super markets, looked through the clothes stores and had such a fun afternoon! We found ...
Last time I was here I sought out a table tennis bar that I'd heard about. It was pretty dingy but there were some good and friendly players and I had a great time.
I had no idea where it was so I thought I'd have a look on the internet but it turns out there are quite a few bars with table tennis in Berlin. Including one just up the road from where I'm staying but that one looks nothing like it.
I picked ...
We're currently on a train to Prague and I have to say I'm a little sad to be leaving Berlin. Having arrived in the city thinking we'd played it all wrong and that 4 nights was going to be way too long I now feel cheated that I didn't get to do everything I wanted. Berlin's interesting. It's almost feels like its got something to prove, like its desperate to show everybody how great Berlin life is now, how much culture and freedom there is, how much it's changed. That's understandable ...
