Historical Traveler Reviews Lindner Hotel Am Ku'damm Berlin
Just arrived back from stopping at this hotel. The place is outstanding for everything.It must be one of the best hotels we have ever stopped in anywhere in the world. Great location for shopping and bars.(Try the sports bar across the road). Good beer and good entertainment.
Only downside was when we arrived at Zoostation at 3.00 in the afternoon when it was just going dark.We were approached by down and out youths three times before we actually got out of the station.What they wanted we do not know as we could not understand them but this was only a minor incident after such an outstanding trip.Berlin is terrific. The Christmas markets and shopping are a must. The hotel is the icing on the cake. We will be back very soon.
Simply the BEST ......
We have just returned from a weeks vacation at this hotel. The pleads from my wife to go back at Xmas for a shopping trip sums up the experience we had while staying at a top class hotel. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by friendly english speaking staff. The room was spotlessly clean , the floor and bar staff were superb at making sure every need was catered for. Location could not have been better, right on KU'Damm with numerous cafes restaurants and street bars all within walking distance.
2 points I'd add, they state 4 star, this hotel should be rated 5*****
Point 2 my wife got her way and Lindner has increased my credit card.
Looking forward to going back at Xmas.
Stayed at this hotel for 3 days of our honeymoon. Excellent central location, only about 7mins walk from the train station. The hotel itself is very modern, but with lots of nice homely touches. Lovely decor and lighting in the rooms, huge power shower, flat screen tv, mini bar, floor to ceiling mirrors, I could go on. Staff were all very friendly. Lovely bar and outside eating area (part decked/part grassed) with wooden seating and large parasols. We stayed on a b&b basis and the food was excellent. Didn't actually go to the dining area to eat, but treated ourselves to room service every day. You could choose as much as you wanted to eat and it was served on a trolley, all very well presented with a lovely selection of, meats, cheeses, jams, bread, tea, coffee, sausage, eggs, etc.
So, basically, I couldn't fault anything at all about this hotel and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone visting Berlin - it was FAB!
As for things to do, we actually went on one of the hop on, hop off, open top tour buses around the city which was really good, as you got to see all the main sites. Also spent time at the Zoo which is about 10-15 mins walk from the hotel and lovely to stroll around on a sunny day.
In the evening, there were plenty of places to eat, but didn't manage to find a central area with all the bars. Saying that though, The Gecco Bar was a great, laid back place to chill out, where we ended up spending our time on the two nights we were there.
One place I definately wouldn't recommend is The Exotic Museum which is between the train station and the hotel - what an absolute waste of time and money. Paid a visit to the bar located on the 2nd floor of the museum (Bar 69), but thought it felt a little seedy. I was the only woman there, the rest were mainly gay couples or men seeking other men so if you're looking for fun in that area, then you'll be ok.
Spotless, well connected hotel
we stayed for a week here for our berlin visit. here are my pluses & minuses
+spotless room & bathroom
+chic styling of hotel/room
+pleasent staff &good english speakers
+free internet in lobby (& network point in room)
+delicious hot/cold buffet breakfast with very wide selection. we missed this very much on returning home !
+metro stop U Kudamme just a few yards from hotel.this is also beside the busstop 109 for tegel.
+500m from zoo station and same distance from kaiser Wil church & its surrounding shopping centres
+room contained tv/hairdryer, a/c, minibar fridge,2 telephones in each room (i guess german husbands & wives expect their own phone?). even a rain umbrella was provided in each room so u can leave yours at home
+hotel on kudame but our room was peaceful.area was safe.
-the ensuite bathroom has no 'door' seperating it from the bed, so you will have to get used to this german concept of privacy
-lobby pc is provided free of charge so it is often occupied,but opposite hotel we found an easyinternetcafe outlet with very reasonable rates (around a euro per hour)
a great hotel. i would definately stay here again.
More than just a hotel room
After a not so good experience in a nearby "3 star" I was looking forward to stay at this hotel and I've to admit that my expectations were fully met!
I did book a "Run of the house" guessing that in a four star hotel it would still be a good value for money and my guess was right.
The design is modern but without forgetting functionality or comfort. The shower was extremely large and that was a big plus to me. Since I'm posting a couple of pictures I took, I'd rather not describe the room in details, just let me confirm that it was spotlessly clean as others here have already stated.
The location is very good as you're on the Ku'Damm (very close to the Gedächtniskirche) so you have connections to almost every corner of the city. For example, it was nice to discover that the bus 109 that goes to Tegel stops right in front the hotel!
The best part anyway was the staff: receptionists, floor personnel, bartenders... everybody was extremely kind, polite professional and helpful. To me, that's what makes the difference between a nice hotel room and a very pleasant stay. Now I've to find an excuse to go back!
Super hotel in great location for shops and station. Modern stylish bedrooms with good furniture and loewe flat screen tvs. Lovely bathroom with large walk in shower and good fittings and lighting, although no door to separate from bedroom (loo enclosed) so the shy might feel slightly exposed. Breakfast was excellent with good range to choose from. Polite staff. Very clean. Would definately recommend, shame we only had one night here on our way back to England.
Fantastic - higly recommended
This excellent hotel easily meets its four star rating. The location is excellent right on the Ku'dam, close to the U Bahn. the open top tour buses also stop very close by so you can quickly get aquainted with this great city. Service in the hotel was excellent and for us included a more than adequate breakfast.
Berlin itself is becoming one of Europe's foremost cities with develpment on a phenomenal scale and interesting political history to boot. The city has a relatively small population so it never feels over crowded. There are a surprising number of canals so you can also take boat trips of this surprisingly green city.
Anyway back to the hotel - spacious rooms, plasma flat screen tv - spotlessly clean. I will certainly stay there again.
Great place, Superb Location
We stayed 3 nights at Lindner Hotel in Berlin during the Easter days in March 2005. We were a party of two couples and we took 2 business rooms with breakfast. The room was realy a big surprise. Very beautiful, spacious and clean. The bath was large with an open and sexy view. Lindner Hotel is a High tech multimedia Hotel with flat screen tv and a unique design. The bar where the breakfast was, is a trendy tasteful area. The food was excelent and the stuff very helpful. The location is very nice, just on the famous Ku'damm near the Kaiser church and all the known fashion stores in Berlin. We loved it and we will stay again next year for the world cup.
Great Location & Good Value
Just back from a 3 night stay at this hotel. It's location is very good about 500m from Zoo Station & was also well located for buses & U-Bahn. The room was very modern (e.g. LCD flatscreen TV), with plenty of space & very clean. Our room had no view, it looked out over a little garden at the back & the white wall of the adjacent building approx 7m away, this was no problem to us as we weren't in the room much & as we sleep with the window open meant we didn't hear any noise, even though the railway line that runs from Zoo station is only about 200m away. The inclusive breakfast was good, although the no smoking area was a bit small which meant we never got into this area during our 3 breakfasts. The staff were very courteous & helpful. Would stay at this hotel again the next time I visit Berlin.
Great hotel, great price, great location
This is a really lovely four star hotel in a fabulous location. It is next door to an underground stop and there is a wide selection of restaurants and bars available in the immediate area. Our room was actually facing onto the Kurfürstendamm, the main shopping street, but at night it was very quiet. The reception staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast, which was included in the price, was tasty and plentiful. On their own web site the hotel give directions how to get to the hotel on public transport which were very easy to follow. If you plan on visiting Berlin check out this hotel.
