Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel-Pension Bregenz Berlin
Perfect Place to Stay in Berlin
Fabulous place to stay. Lived in Europe for over two years and one of the best low-cost hotels I've stayed in Europe. Very close to public transport. Very nice bed. Best hotel sleep I've had in a while. Clean rooms. HuGE for European hotel standards. Excellent breakfast. Hotel owner is great to chat and will give you tips on sightseeing if asked. Sure you can spend 160 Euro on a large corperation hotel that is as nice, but why do that when you've got a nice family owned place to rest your head?
A Charming Hotel
This hotel is wonderful. It is located so close to the Kufurstendamm but on a side street that is very quiet and has a great local neighborhood feel to it. Christian, the owner helped me plan a detailed itinerary to see some of Berlin's main attractions since I did not have much time to sightsee. He also gave great restaurant recommendations. My room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation.
We love this hotel
My wife and i stayed here in November for 4 nights.
We paid 75,- Euro for a very nice room. Our room was brandnew, comfortable and
very very clean. The location is excellent,direct in the city, but very quiet.
It`s a non-smoking hotel.
The owner was very helpfull and explain everthing.
(It was NO PROBLEM TO LEAVE OUR LUGGAGE for the hole day !)
Check-out time was 10 o´clock, but CHECK-IN WAS 10 - 12 o´clock !
The breakfast was plentiful, we love it.
We highly recommend the Hotel-Pension Bregenz.

Overall good value but some snags
My husband and I stayed in this hotel upon tripadvisor recommendation in October 2004. We paid about 80 Euros for our spacious double room. The room was immaculately clean, but there were some snags with the overall hotel.
Cigarette smell came in from the corridor (our room was close to the reception, breakfast room area) and someone seemed to chain smoke in the morning. The communal area always smelled of smoke. The cheapish decor of the hotel and room seemed to have been preserved from the 80s; there was even a plastic tree in our room, something what I have never seen in German hotels before.
Checkout on a Sunday morning was 10 am. Considering what nocturnal city Berlin is I found this time incomprehensible (for travellers with early night hours, this should not be a problem, but we explored the exciting night life in Berlin on Saturday night and would have liked to sleep in). Also, the management didn't let us leave our bags in the hotel after checking out because they said that no one will be at the hotel between 2 and 7 pm. We had the hassle of having to leave the luggage at Zoo station before boarding our return flight.
The hotel is in a central, if not overly touristy, location and overall I'd say that it is a decent value for money, but for my next Berlin trip I'd rather stay somewhere else with a bit more character and more comfort.
Great place to stay
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel-Pension Bregenz in September 2004. We were delighted with our room, which was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The balcony was an unexpected treat and the mini-bar in the room offered another convenience. Breakfast was plentiful with a variety of choices, including cereal, eggs, ham, cheese, yogurt, and toast. The owners speak excellent English, and are exceptionally helpful. Upon our arrival, we were given a map and suggested sightseeing tour, and we were able to purchase transit passes from them. We highly recommend this pension and will stay here again.
I stayed at this hotel for a week in September. It's located on a quiet street near Kurfurstendamm, one of the most famous Berlin avenues. The breakfast is excellent. The hotel is managed by the owners, who are very nice and helpful. Mr. Gamradt gave me a lot of valuable tips about Berlin and its tourist attractions. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. I would strongly recommend it.
Wonderful place to stay
What a wonderful find. Great location on a tree lined street close to everything. The people who run the hotel were very warm, helpful and spoke excellent english. The rooms were so comfortable with an oversized downpillow and down comforter with a very nice size bathroom, best of all the room had a mini refrigerator. Very quiet I slept the best of any hotel I've ever stayed in. Very nice breakfast served. Everything you could possibly want in a hotel. I can't wait till my next visit. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Berlin.
Enjoyed our stay!
We stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month. The room was comfortable, included a bathroom and patio for a reasonable price. The breakfast was good with a wide selection. The owner was very nice and helpful. Also spoke great English! The location was ok, easy to reach by bus/subway/walking. Very quiet!!
Good feel - nice staff and exellent breakfast :-)
Has stayed there twice ...and I'm going back there... - That says it all - right?
Owner is very pleasant and helpfull. Good location.Excellent breakfast.

... from Berlin, and I still aren't sure how to take it. It is a nice city in that you feel very safe, it isn't too touristy, there isn't many pickpocketers or people trying to sell you ****. You occasionally got wafts of a disgusting smell.

Thousands of prisioners would line up here each day. On time, prisoners were forced to stand for a day, over night, and into the next day, they weren't allowed to help each other or sit down.

A senior nazi by the name of Reinhard Heydrich who was head of the security police, was ordered by Herman Goering (Hitlers number two and general boss of operations) to sort out the mechanics of how they would ship off all the Jews to the extermination camps - they called it "the final solution to the Jewish question".

The inside of the church - obviously. Looks like it's Lutheran. A bit of a different look to the Catholic churches that I'm more familiar with.
And a pretty old looking sculpture in the churchyard.
This is classic for a city separated for so long because of communism... Could she be wandering up to find who these two blokes ...
