  • great berlin central hotel

    by

    This hotel is the best I have ever stayed in. It is located just a short stroll from Checkpopint Charlie and very central to most of the most popular sites in Berlin. The facilities here are excellent and all of the rooms include air conditioning and mini bar. The breakfast was good and the hotel is spotless throughout. The staff are helpful enough and efficient. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Berlin. There is a U Bahn station located very near the hotel but it was only operating a limited service when we were there which was a little awkward. However when it is fully working it will make travelling around the city very easy.

  • Great location and value

    by

    Four days in mid-May at this excellent hotel. Very clean and tidy with friendly and polite staff. The breakfast was plentiful and varied and the room of a good size.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is located within walking distance (five minutes or less) of Checkpoint Charlie and a rail stop is right outside the hotel with a newsagent next-door for purchasing rail/bus tickets. Despite it's 'touristy' location the hotel and surrounding streets were very quite at night. Should I return to Berlin I will have no hesitation in revisiting this hotel.

    Directions: Walk to Checkpoint Charlie from city centre and hotel is a few minutes walk on the left.

Spacious rooms, good location

by TripAdvisor Member AmsterdamSquirrel

As the Alfa Hotel was overbooked, they booked me a room at the Angleterre Hotel. As I had a good rate (same rate as at Alfa Hotel, which is a less good hotel), it was a nice stay at the Angleterre. Spacious rooms and nice staff. Good breakfast. Location, close to Checkpoint Charlie, is great.

Good base for long weekend

by TripAdvisor Member Gifford

We have just returned from an enjoyable 4 night stay at the Angleterre Hotel in Berlin. The hotel was very clean, the rooms of a good standard and very warm considering the cold weather outside. The beds were a bit soft for my liking and an extra pillow would have helped.

Reception staff were courteous and check-in and out was speedy.

We did not eat in the hotel, but found the food in the city of a very high standard and reasonably priced.

Many of the sights were within walking distance of the hotel and an underground station was right outside for trips further afield. The transport system was very reliable and spotlessly clean. A one day pass costs under 6 euro. Although the hotel is central for the sights, most of the good nightlife appeared to be further away, though easily accessible by underground. We enjoyed the bars around Kollwitz Platz in the Prenzlauer Berg area of the city which was laid back and relaxed.

We also found the Berliners very friendly and courteous.

Christmas shopping in Berlin

by TripAdvisor Member CreteTraveller

Just returned from a three night shopping trip with my daughter, and can only confirm the majority appraisal of this Hotel. We were on the third floor and the fact that there was no porter service did not bother us. Our room was spotless and easily accessed. We did not eat in the Hotel as we wanted to be out and about as much as possible and found a rather good traditional restaurant (Maximilians) half way up Friedrichstrasse where we ate each night. Amazing sausages!! You cannot miss the big round figure outside the restaurant!! There are loads of eating places in this area.

As for the location of the Hotel, well, no-one would want to turn left at night as there is nothing to see or do. During the day, however, there is nothing to fear and if you enjoy an Asbach (German brandy) there is a small supermarket named Kaiser's where you can purchase a bottle for about 12 euros to bring home. Another plus is the Police Station which is directly opposite the Hotel. You cannot get much safer than that.

The cost of a taxi from Berlin Tegel airport to the Hotel costs app. 18 euros, and the city itself has an excellent transport system.

We did the Berliner City Tour, getting on the tour bus at Checkpoint Charlie late afternoon. Apart from that, we walked everywhere else. The Christmas lights and decorations were truly amazing, even the shopping arcades excelled. All in all, we managed to cover about four out of the fifty Christmas markets in Berlin, stuffing ourselves with all that was on offer and enjoying the lively atmosphere. I have been to Germany before but must say that Berliners are so friendly and helpful, especially at this time of year, and the City is fascinating and easy to get around. Do take an expanding case, however, for all the Christmas treats on offer.

Finally, I look upon myself as a spritely "Golden Oldie", who would say to anyone of any age wanting to visit this City at Christmas - " Go there . Enjoy yourself. You will not be disappointed, either with the City or Hotel Angleterre".
Seasons Greetings.

Okay business-style hotel

by TripAdvisor Member shopdummy

Stayed here for a city break. The location quite good, right next to friedrichstrasse u-bahn. The hotel itself was a business-style establishment, it didn't really seem aimed at tourists. Although the reception staff were courteous they weren't especially friendly.

The room was very nice, clean & quiet. But the shower didn't work properly and despite several requests made to reception, nothing was done about it. Handy internet access via the TV in the rooms but no tea/coffee making facilities.

Excellent hotel

by TripAdvisor Member happy-traveller14

An old building but only newly a hotel. Stayed here for 6 nights and were very comfortable apart from the fact that they were unable to give me a 2nd pillow - my only adverse comment. Breakfast appears expensive at 15 Euros per person but the spread is impressive and you can eat as much as you want. We used this as our main meal and ate only a snack during the day and a light meal at night. The hotel is in Friederichstrasse, a good place for shopping and fairly central for most things. There is a UBahn station only a very short walk away and the hotel is close to Checkpoint Charlie for those who know Berlin's recent history. The UBahn is a very efficient way of getting around the city if you don't want to walk but, as with most places, walking is the best way to see the sights. Enjoyed our stay, especially the Christmas markets (Gendarmenmarkt considered the best). Overall well above average.
Hot tip. Try the hot chocolate in the Einstein Coffee Houses. Delicious!

Good Location but disappointing in some ways

by TripAdvisor Member sparrowhawk99

We booked a Suite here for a week over the New Year but left feeling a little disappointed. Reception could be described as functional rather than friendly or helpful. There was no welcome.
I e-mailed the hotel to put flowers in our room for our arrival. Despite acknowledging my e-mail, they did not do so and denied receipt of my e-mail. No apology. We were refused two room key cards (though I obtained a second one later upon payment of 5 euros). We had no difficulty in getting more pillows - they came almost immediately and the bed was very comfortable.

The Suite was very nice, divided into two rooms. The bedroom was pleasant, clean and with en suite facilities though an important chair was missing (later replaced). The lounge area was more like a railway waiting room - two large armchairs and virtually no furniture other than a TV. The most disappointing feature is that neither room had any carpet or rugs, there were no curtains that could be drawn; merely an external roller blind electrically operated. Everywhere was clean; towels were changed daily but the sheets never changed. Twice the TV had to be repaired (promptly) but when I enquired why there was so little furniture (and thus much empty space), I was told that the room was let as it was. Ideal for holding cocktail parties but very cold on the feet as the floor covering was simply a form of lino thoroughout and hardly homely or cosy.

Bar and Restaurant were both accessible via tortuous internal narrow passageways (not too well lit) through the building or from the street. The barman was very friendly and the bar small but cosy for a late night drink. The restaurant was never open in the evening even though menus were provided. It was laid up for breakfast, obtainable at 15 euros extra per person. The cafe opposite provides breakfast. The Hotel is next to Kochstrasse U Bahn but virtually unknown to taxi drivers so ask for Checkpoint Charlie just up the road. Hotel Reception does get taxis fairly quickly upon request. The hotel is right at the bottom of Friedrichstrasse but there are plenty of restaurants in the area. Altogether a rather disappointing experience though the price asked would have been good had the Suite been properly furnished. My comments would then have been much more positive. The hotel does not seem to care much about its guests.

I won't be staying there again !

by TripAdvisor Member Germanlover

Disappointing, since the website is appealing, the building is great from the outside, the entrance hall is enormous & the staff ok - I expected the room to be cosy, "gemütlich", typical berliner - instead, it was only just a bit better than many 2-stars in terms of size & much worse than many in terms of facilities (no extra pillows, no coffeemaker, soap dispenser broken, oldie curtains, etc, etc). I'm surprised by what I've read here about only recently being a hotel - the general impression was of an old hotel needing renovation.

Check Point Charlie

by A TripAdvisor Member

Stayed at the Angleterre the weekend returning home 15/01/2007.
Must say I really enjoyed it.
The staff were very friendly, the rooms were very clean, the bathroom was perfect, the hotel bar was very good, and even the restaurant was very good.
The hotel is just a few meters up from the old check point charlie crossing, and underground station, so easy to find.
We flew from easyjet Berlin shoenfeld airport, and caught a taxi, who when we mentioned the road Friedreichstrasser (a very long road) knew the hotel from the check point charlie focus point, worth remembering (thank you to a previous reviewer for the tip), the taxi fare incedently for two people was 22 euro.
Berlin is quite a sprawling city thus the hotel location is fine, as if you stayed anywhere you would probabily want to go see check point charlie in any event.
The price of the hotel for three nights was 241 euro's, which I thought was exceptional value.
The only critical comment on the hotel, and all restaurants visited was the smokers. Ok, I dont smoke, so I find it revolting to be in a non segregrated enviroment for smokers, well.... all Berlin seems to be full of smokers, ash trays everywhere, in the hotel reception, bar, all city eateries and after EVERY meal we smelt like a bolivian cigarette convention member, horrible, but you cant aviod it....

Spot On!

by TripAdvisor Member beedqlane

Great location right beside metro and Checkpoint Charlie.The hotel was perfect for a weekend break in Berlin and everything was exactly as you would expect. And maybe because it was January, it was great value too.

Re: Getting from the Airport to Checkpoint Charlie

by DrexlUK

We stayed at the Angleterre Hotel during our visit last spring and it's an excellent hotel - clean, quiet, good value for money and with helpful staff. There is an underground station literally right outside the door to the hotel and the small shop next to the hotel sells train/bus tickets. Checkpoint Charlie is about five minutes walk, maybe less, from the hotel (it's on the same road.)

Hope this helps!
