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.

... Republic (GDR or “East Germany”) and being a socialist country many of the buildings (in particular the churches) were left as they were. Since reunification in 1990, many of these ruined buildings have been repaired and now it is almost impossible to believe the they are not all original! It was strange to still see large tracts of land in the middle of the city that have sat vacant since the 1940’s - left as ‘memorials’ or just left because ...
... were going to make it possible for people to apply for an exit visa, but in all honesty they weren't going to allow many if any at all. In a press release, Schabowski read the act, which stated that regulations on emigration were being lifted, but he was unprepared for questions and started making things worse. When asked if the act included the destruction of the Berlin Wall he said yes. Then when asked when the destruction would begin, he said ...
... German pizza with a cream cheese base, onion and apple) YUMM ah so much food is being consumed, especially NUTELLA soooo much Nutella haha. The first morning we went down to the flea markets. yup we touched the Berlin Wall and listened to street buskers and bought some quirky things (I bought 16 draw knobs...) We went to the movies where we saw The Grand Budapest Hotel, in preparation for trip to Budapest. No words to explain this movie, abstract and loud, but very ...
... teams' colours. There was one guy on a microphone leading the crowd in chants. Everyone knew the chants and the actions that went with them and I found myself watching them a lot more than I watched the game!
Coming from a sporting background I took a lot of notice in how the event was run. There was no music and no announcements or half time field entertainment. The game itself was the spectacle and the only thing they showed on the big screen were advertisements ...
... to be in town for a vegan festival! Alexanderplatz was swarming with people eating vegan food and learning about animal welfare issues.
Berlin is also sobering. It is not ignoring its dark history of World War II, the persecution of Jews and others, and the Berlin Wall (1961-89). There are plenty of reminders, posters, exhibitions and museums on these subjects. It struck me that unlike the ancient history I’ve been exposed to in the ...
