Finally we arrived in Berlin & followed Jane's carefully documented instructions to find our hotel, a large refitted E German office complex not too far out of town. After a scratch meal we turned in exhausted as If we had driven the bus ourselves.

Modern history is my thing - starting with the migration of the Mafia from the hills of Sicily to New York City in the early 1900's. Some people travel just to meet people and while I've met some people on my travels that I don't ever want to see the back of, I can't say it's something I enthusiastically ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Louisa's Place Berlin
We stayed here for 3 days in March. The hotel was much of a really high standard and the room we had was a suite with seperate living room and kitchen. Useful for chilling the odd bottle of wine etc. The swimming pool was a great asset and although small we really enjoyed using it after a day's sightseeing. The hotel is close to a variety of restaurants we ate in a nice homely italian just further down the block and the hotel has it's own restaurant as well. I had a massage which the very helpful staff arranged for me and it was second to none. Our room was clean, spacious and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice and quiet overlooking a courtyard at the back. Overall a highly recommended hotel exceptional money for the price we paid from our national airlines webpage.
We've just returned from a 3 night stay at Louisa's Place. It was extremely comfortable, we had a large room looking onto the main street (double-glazed windows blocked out pretty much all the sound), with a large bathroom and a small kitchen area (great for chilling the pre-dinner drinks or making a cup of tea before heading out for the day!). Breakfast was plentiful and there was a good choice. The pool and sauna were just the thing to relax after a hard day sight-seeing.
This was our first trip to Berlin, and I think next time we would stay in the Mitte district, but as this hotel is so close to the U and S Bahn stations it was quite easy to get around. The hotel was really lovely to return to and the staff second to none.
We eventually arrived at the Hotel after being delayed at Liverpool Airport for 4 hours. We received a warm and friendly welcome....and we didn't arrive until 10:15pm.
Warm, comfortable and friendly
we spent 4 days at this wonderful place. Everywhere in the hotel the atmosphere was warm and friendly. Here in the comfortable rooms you find everything your heart is longing for. You feel wellcome and the evenings at the open fire had been unforgettable. This is actually the best place in town!
A Gem of a Hotel in Berlin
We stayed at Louisa's Place in Berlin for 5 nights. It was such a beautiful hotel with friendly and very professional staff. Our "room" consisted of a large living room with sofa, chair and desk, a very modern kitchen with all the necessary equipment, balcony and comfortable bedroom. The large bathroom had a heated floor and towel rack. The pool and sauna were very nice and never crowded. The subway is 1/2 a block away. The neighborhood has lots of shopping but is not as crazy as further up the Kurfurstendamm. We had a wonderful dinner one night in Wolters, the restaurant that is part of the hotel. For anyone staying for a few days in Berlin who don't want the typical cramped hotel room this is the place!
In january 2005 we discoverd Louisa's Place at the Kurfürstendamm, which was recommended to us by friends from the USA. Since our first stay there, we returned three times now to this charming place which develloped to a kind of private pied de terre in Germany's Capital. The marvellous old town-palace was subtly renovated not too long ago and gives you the impression of how beautiful the pre-war Berlin must have been. The spacious rooms are decorated very tastefully, the elegant swimmingpool is much bigger than in most other town-hotels and the hotel has the advantage of a seperated, closed garage where you can park a valuable car without somebody else touching it, like in Adlon or Kempinski-Hotel.
My place in berlin....
I stay at the louisa´s place for 4 nights.
The hotel is my special in berlin.
The aprtements standard is very high, the service was perfect, and the wellness area is very modern and silence.
I will stay for all my berlin trips at the louisa´s place!
Great Boutique Hotel
Absolutely lovely hotel, excuding european charm in every corner. The suites are over spacious and beautifully appointed. The hotel is on the famous Kudamm, and only a 15 minute walk from my favourit world renown shopping mall KDW. Everyone working at Louisa's Place has only one thing in mind, pleasing and making the guest happy. The indoor pool gave me plenty of length to maintain my lap swimming.
GREAT PLACE ENJOY
A fantastic place to be
We spent just one night at the Louisa's place in Sept 2004 but it was a wonderful place to be! We had been in love for only 4 weeks and spent the evening having a picnic in bed (it was easy to buy some nice food, as there are so many nice shops closeby) and around midnight we went to the beautiful spa area in the basement. It was just the two of us and we felt like king and queen ...!
I have seen the comment above and cannot understand where (or when) Maria had been ... we seem to speak of totally different hotels ... (?). Our Louisa's place is nicely located in a side street of the Ku-Damm, calm, nicely decorated (modern) and with excellent furniture. The only "old" thing we saw was their underground garage (which looks scruffy, I have to admit).
Not the hotel you can see on the internet photos
The Louisa's Place Hotel which is located a little bit below the main stores area of the Ku-damm is a renovated "home for old people". And unfurtunately it has still the charme of it. Even there are still the "wooden stripes" at the wall where old people can help theirselfs going...
The rooms are big but it is a terrible in there and they are not so nice decorated as you can see on the pictures (I don`t know how they made these nice pictures?).
If you expect to go in a nice small "landhouse" hotel you will not find that. And after one night you will feel like 85 years old, I promise.
So if you can I recommand to choose another hotel that you can find for that price of course.
