Historical Traveler Reviews NH Berlin Friedrichstrasse
My boyfriend and I just returned from a weeks stay in wonderful Berlin at the Jolly Hotel Vivaldi. The hotel was definitely more than we expected, since we got a good deal (85 Euro pr. room pr. night), we thought our room would reflect that. But the room was wonderful with a beautiful view of Friedrichstrasse and the trainstation. A great bathroom with shower and tub! The location could not have been better, charming cafÚs right next door, located in a great shopping area, and in walking distance to many main attractions. Futhermore the neighbouring trainstation with U bahn and S bahn was very practical. The only negative thing to say about this hotel is that they charged too much for the breakfast buffet (17 Euro pr. person pr. day), the price was so high that we chose not to eat at the hotel, but instead at the nearby restaurants or bakeries, which by the way was no trouble at all and so much cheaper!
All in all this hotel made our stay just about perfect. I recommend it to anyone who wants a great stay in Berlin!!
Great hotel in the centre of Berlin
Stayed there last week on a short break. The hotel is brand-new and with all the comforts of a 4-star hotel (porter, in-room safe, sweets at night, etc.) for a very reasonable price. I booked early and paid only EUR96 a night for a double room! We checked in at noon as we made an early arrival in the city. They switched around a few reservations to find a room available immediately for us, which was great after a 5.30am start!
The reception staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were immaculately clean. Even though we were in a quite busy area of Berlin with a major train station next door, the sound-proofing was perfect. We couldn't hear a thing! Very important for us in a hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Most helpful reception staff ever encountered
Booking a long weekend in Berlin for myself, husband and a couple of good friends in May 2005 could not have been made easier by the exceptional staff at the Jolly Vivaldi. They went out of their way to assist when trying to arrange the booking and the service was equally good during our visit.
The manager should be congratulated on the quality of his reception staff.
The hotel is perfectly located for visiting the main attractions in Berlin and is just by an underground and mainline station - the modern rooms were very well soundproofed so no noise. The river is only around the corner where there are plenty of nice eating places and just across the road from reception is a very good typical German eating house.
This hotel is just perfect for a weekend break.
The Perfect stay...
Spending 4 days in Berlin at the Jolly. Absolutely perfect. Brand new building, brand new rooms, excellent room cleaning and service. Amazing Location, few meters from "U-Bahn" underground station and in the heart of the shopping and historical area. Only a bit disappointed because of the trainee people at the Desk: not so smart and bad english spoken!!
Smart and clean in a great location
My husband and I and two teenage boys stayed here for three days in October 2004. It is in a great location right by Friedrichstrasse station, within walking distance of lots of major sites such as the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Unter den Linden and Museum Island. The rooms were scrupulously clean and the service was faultless, i.e. helpful but not obtrusive. The double (triple? quadruple?) glazing kept out the sound of the railway. We didn't bother with the breakfast as it seemed overpriced when compared with the many breakfast establishments in Berlin. We liked one near the hotel on (I think) Georgenstrasse going east. Oranienburgerstrasse (also within walking distance) was good for budget restaurants of many different nationalities.
This hotel is right by Friedrichstrasse station in an extremely convenient location. It is new with tasteful, modern decor and the room I stayed in was extremely comfortable and spacious. The staff were amongst the best I have encountered in any hotel and were friendly, polite and very helpful and quick to respond to any requests. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Berlin.
This hotel is awesome! I stay there every time I go to Berlin. It has kind of a minimilistic feel to it, althought it has everything you could ever need and its exceptionally clean. I usually get the "run of the house room" rate which means I get assigned a room type at check-in because its cheaper that way, but every room I've stayed in has been great. I usually arrive at 12 - 1pm and every time I've been told a room is ready for me to check-in, no waiting until 3pm.
The hotel is right accross the street from Berlins Friedrichstra▀e train station which is pretty much the main station in the city. You can get to any place from it. Leave through the other door of the hotel and you are right at the steps to go down to the U line subway which runs north south. I once got a room facing the train station, and I was worried about the noise...but I couldnt hear a thing seriously. Staff are friendly and speak english.
I'm off again in 10 days to Berlin... and I'm already booked in this hotel again!
I spent 2 weeks in four cities in europe and this hotel was by far the most amazing. From walking in you think you have entered a Ritz Carlton with flowing water all over, helpful multlingual staff and superbly dressed bellmen. Every room is equipped with a heated towel rack and more goodies then one good possibly need i.e. creams, soaps, even q-tips! The television recieved tons of channels and a speaker is located in the shower so you never have to miss Richard Quest on CNNi. Being an Italian chain the pasta was superb the one night I ate there. Best of all you are a three minute walk from the Brandenburg gate and 10 seconds from the MAIN rail station in Berlin (Every s-BAHN line crosses through here!) This place is the real deal, and I'm interested to see what others think!

... spots had turned into small sores about the size of a 5 cent piece. So I thought to give my feet a break from the shoes I would wear my thongs (that's Flip Flops or Slippers for the non Australians). The walk was very, very good. Mike (our guide) had moved to Berlin to study for his Masters in 19th - 20th century Germany, so this guy knew it all. He had some fascinating tales about the development of Berlin, it's architecture and of course it's role within ...
... Germany became a dictatorship from 1933 to 1945. The building was rebuilt after unification and not used as parliament again until 1999. The fašade of the old building has been kept but the inside is a new building including a new glass dome that you can walk to the top off. The parliamentary chamber is surrounded by glass so that anyone can see the government at work.
We took the lift to the top of the building and walked around the outside edge before putting ...
Well another early start this morning not because we needed to but just because we seem to wake up at 5.30am. So down to breakfast same very typical German cuisine, and after quick brush of teeth, we were off agin time 8.00am Walked to train station to buy our train ticket for our trip to Sachsenhausen concentration camp then got some nashies to eat thru the day at the camp and some water, then ventured back down to hackers her market which was where the tour started from along ...
... a huge flea market and a nearby park that had a stage for karaoke that was open to everyone on sundays. We sat there waiting and waiting but because of time constraints we didn't get to see the karaoke, but we still go to see some stupid clown work his magic for euros. That park was really amazing and had a good relaxed vibe to it.
Anyways we left that place to do another exit point, but this time we got to a tiny room with a curtain for a door and some poor ...
... trouble getting on a team. Quite nice out the back too. A few people eating, a piano. Looks a lot more intimate than the Republic quiz night venue too. And a last shot of the pub itself. After a bit of a chat I pushed off again. Back past the station. That gave me a chance to check out the cute pub opposite. Tiny inside but with some snack food. Pork fat to smear on bread, that sort ...
