Historical Traveler Reviews Agon Olivaer Apart Hotel Berlin
Really nice breakfast, loud music
Good location, only three minutes to the bus stop and (if you like to walk) half an hour to the "real" shopping area. There was a small supermarket next door to the hotel. The room was large, contained what we needed, but don't expect anything extra. The breakfast was extraordinary (especially for such a cheap price), a large buffet with everything I could wish for. I can really recommend it.
The only concern I have is that one of the nights the restaurant below had live music which was heard very loud in our room which was right above the restaurant. If you stay at this hotel I recommend you to ask for a room which is not neigbour to the restaurant.
We stayed at the Top Olivaer Hotel in September 2004 and found it very disappointing for a three star Hotel. It needs a facelift and inside, the lights are not switched on in the corridors so it's dark and dingy. The staff are not helpful nor interested in their guests. The breakfast buffet was located in a sunny, cheerful top floor and the standard was fine except one staff member was not very hygenic and handled all the cutlery with her fingers. Our room was clean inside although very basic and the curtains so thin that they didn't keep out the daylight. The location was good but we found the Hotel so depressing, that we decided to relocate to a four star Hotel after a couple of nights. The picture of the Hotel on the website is rather deceiving as the inside has nothing of the charm which is depicted in the picture.
It's an okay hotel
Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. The pictures shown on the internet is probably their best room. However, we got a smaller room facing the inner courtyard. The elevator/hallway made us feel claustrophibic because it was small and dark until you open the lights in the hall-way w/c by the way automatically closes after sometime. The door lock was somewhat ancient and we had difficulty opening the door the first day. The bathroom sink was clogged and we had difficulty using it the first night. However, they did eventually fixed the problem and we were happy. The only complain I have is the lack of pillows. They only provide one for each bed w/c is not sufficent (at least for us). The breakfast was nourishing and very satisfying. They do serve scrambled eggs and soft boil eggs so it is not entirely a "cold" breakfast. For the price and location it's not bad and we have no problem staying their again given the chance.
Beware of the bathrooms and movies!
All rooms in the hotel are different - our friends got a reasonable room while we unfortunately got the dud room. Our bedroom was okay - good comfortable beds - but our bathroom was terrible - it stunk of sewerage and when we used the shower it flooded the room. As the hotel was fully booked we were unable to change rooms! We asked if the drain could be looked at - but was told no to this request as well. Then the final straw was when we checked out we were charged for movies we did not even watch. Despite trying to plead our case - that we under no circumstances watched any type of movie for 12 min (as they claimed) the receptionist claimed she did not understand us and forced us to cough up the cash. We were not impressed!
Ok Hotel - but creaky floor..
The Hotel was ok for the most part, Its in a nice quieter part of Berlin.
However, in my room the floor creaked with every step I took !! The wardobe doors also creaked really loud everytime I opened it.. The walls were kinda partition walls so I could hear next door having a shower etc..
I dont think this would be a good place for a honey-moon :)
But the room was clean if a bit small (single room) - I only had a view of the bins out the back.
Breakfast was ok ish.. but it can be hard to find a place to sit if you arrive for Breakfast at the wrong time.. some of the staff were nice.. but the receptionists always looked angry / not very friendly. There is a small supermarket next door - so dont use the minibar! :)
But It wasnt expensive so I guess you get what you pay for.
Loved the Beds!
Was very impressed with the hotel for what we paid. Had a huge balconey, which i assume all the rooms did not have and which I did not expect..but we were were on the 05th Floor. The hotel was in a great location, you could not ask for anything better. My fave thing about the hotel was the beds...which raised up and down so u could sit up and they were very comfortable...I wanted to take it home!!! The staff were so friendly and very helpful and I Would def. stay in this hotel again. The breakfast was standard and there was plenty of it and there are so many places to eat, the only thing I would say is beware of the 16% service charge added on if you use your mini bar as we ended up paying a lot more than we thought the bill was going to be!!!
Very Basic Hotel - Don't trust the pictures you see on the websites which look pretty good. Ancient corridors and lifts, probably never renovated since the war. However, very clean room (which was large) and bathroom with a great walk-in shower. BUT no tea / coffee facilities, no hairdryer, thin curtains that let the sunlight in, tiny bathroom, double bed is actually 2 singles pushed together, dodgy cupboard door mechanism and poor decor. Good location 1 minute brisk walk from Ku'dam. Bus 129 right from Zoologischer Garten (Zoo Rail Station) direct to Olivaer Platz. Breakfast is actually not so great - just a basic buffet. Best bet is the good coffee or tea with a fresh bread bun and a carton of jam (didn't dare touch the open dishes of jams, fruits and savouries etc as the wasps got there first! Wouldn't stay there again, but Berlin is great so it was a cheap base for 7 nights.
Caviare for breakfast
Top Olivaer Aparthotel is a perfectly comfortable, by no means spectacular hotel, reasonably priced for so near a major city. It is easily accessible by the 109 bus (Zone B) from Tegel airport and very handy for the U-Bahn at Adenauer Platz. Although the expedia booking had suggested we'd get 2 double rooms, 2 singles is what we got - but very comfortable beds, fiendishly efficient central heating system, good sized bathrooms, plenty wardrobe space. The view - inner courtyard with dustbins wasn't exciting but who comes to Berlin to spend hours gazing out of the bedroom window? It's an old, solidly built building and so noise from other guests wasn't a problem. The keycards worked well and prevented a drunken guest who'd mistaken his way from getting into my room at 3 a.m.! The staff were endlessly friendly, responding just as smilingly to my determined German and my companion's insistent English. The breakfast rooms were light and airy, plenty of room for everyone, even on a crowded weekend. An apparently limitless supply of breads, cereals, fruits, cold meats, cheeses, cakes, juices, yoghourts, salads, eggs and, on the last day, caviare on egg-halves. I expect bigger hotels do do bigger spreads but this was very satisfying, fresh and tasty. And the coffee - just glorious! No opportunities to dine in the hotel but plenty of places near by - Graffitti on Ku'damm and Stefan's on the corner of Xantener Strasse 2 pleasant and 'easy' examples. Not an exciting hotel but for its modest price-range above average and what it did, it did well. Failing a major lottery win (in which case I fancy the Adlon.....) I would happily stay here again.

Thursday night, on the suggestion of our expat friend and absent host Tom, we visited Street Food Thursday in a market hall in Kreuzberg. Proof that hipsters are present even here, we pushed through the crowds of beards and short denim shorts to explore the stalls hawking burgers, tacos, pulled pork, homemade ice cream, ...

The tour is based on tips only so you can just give any amount you want to. He did tell us that the guide does not take all the tips, they are supposed to give about 3€ to the company for every participant. Each guide was ...
