    AGO TO AGON ALEXANDERPLATZ

    by

    Hotel Agon Am Alexanderplatz is NOT on Alexanderplatz - in spite of the name, and there is a difference.

    The first difference is location; this is not the elegance and liveliness of the main square of Alexanderplatz, but instead a slightly run-down district of former East Berlin still very much in its East German era, with little elegance or refurbishment.

    The second difference is PRICE, we paid 62 Euros a night (40quid in British) for a double-suite and I think that is FANTASTIC value. Incidentally "Lastminute.Com" wanted 62POUNDS for the same booking - do they think we British are too stupid to know the difference between a Euro and a Pound?

    We walked from the Alexanderplatz S-Bahn to this hotel, so its location was not a problem. Far easier is the Tram, the M6 stops outside the Hotel in Otto Braunstrasse, but the M4 and M5 trams also stop outside on Mollstrasse (2 stops frm S and U Alexanderplatz. On the north side of Otto Braunstrasse (diagonally across from the hotel) you can catch buses 100, 200, and TXL which will run to Brandenburger Tor and Unter Den Linden.

    So whilst the hotel is not located as well as its address suggests, in fact it is a good location and is a good price. For 62Euros I would give this 5stars, but in the context of all Berlin Hotels then it is a very good 3Stars.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is not elegant, but nor is is untidy or run-down. Our room was a suite comprising: an ante-room with warddrobes, shelves, mirror, space to put cases, prams, bicycles. A shower/toilet room (no bath, no bidet), with all plumbing fully working and kept clean everyday, and heated.

    Then through an inner door into the main room which was about 5metres x 5metres and comprised two generous single beds, a large desk/shelf on one wall with some drawers underneath, a lounge area with 2 chairs and table and wall-mounted TV (only the ghastly CNN as an English Language Channel). There was also a kitchenette with sink, twin hot rings, cupboards and shelves - everything to cook a meal, but no fridge, no pans, crockery or utensils. Then there was a full width balcony overlooking the noisy Mollstrasse - those Trams run ALL Night long! We kept our milk and food on the balcony as this was like a fridge in the December air. The room was generously heated, and we were able to control this. I cannot say if there was air-conditioning in the room, so summer occupation may be difficult

    Our room rate included buffet breakfast, and whilst this doesn't sound very hearty, in fact it was large. Hot Scrambled eggs and sausages, also hard-boiled eggs. Masses of cold meats, cheeses, salads, fruits, yoghurts, juices, teas, coffees, cereals, milks, cakes, breads ...

    Directions: From Alexanderplatz S + U Bahn take trams M4, M5 or M6 and get off at Otto Braunstrasse/Mollstrasse as the Hotel is located at this junction. If you fly into Tegel Airport, you can catch the TXL bus to junction of Mollstrasse/Otto Braunstrasse.

    Good clean comfortable cheap hotel

    by

    Great location. From Alexanderplatz S Bahn take M1,2,3,4,or 5 one stop to the Hotel. Saves a longish walk with luggage. Bus 200 , great for sightseeing , also stops just across from the hotel. Hotel looks a bit bleak outside but pleasant reception with free access to Internet. Staff friendly and helpful. Place (free) to store luggage before check -in and after checking out. Only 2 lifts so sometimes quite a wait. Corridors have strip lighting that comes on as you pass and linoleum floors so not great impression. However once inside, the rooms are a pleasant surprise. Very clean, large and airy: one wall is all window leading onto a balcony with views of Alexanderplatz. Bathroom clean and great shower, towels changed daily. Heating was easily adjustable. One thing to note: although it was described as a double room (matrimoniale) it was actually a twin room with two very large single beds with individual quilts and sheets. Easy enough to push together but still 2 beds! The other rooms on our floor were the exact same arrangement. There was a completely new kitchenette area built in to the room with 2 electric cooking plates. No utensils or plates supplied but if staying for longer you could easily buy cheap coffee pot etc. No fridge but as it was minus 2° outside we just put wine on the balconey for a half hour to cool.
    Breakfast was good , exactly same as that we had in Jolly Hotel in Amsterdam paying loads more.
    We'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants not to spend a lot, but likes comfort. We booked through Hotel.com and got an offer of 3 nights for the price of 2 : Euro 153 Total !!!

    Nice hotel, big rooms and a delicious breakfast!

    If you only need a bed

    by

    Large rooms at a great price. It's an old hospital (I think) rebuild as a hotel. Excellent if you only need a bed e.g. accomondation during a party weekend.

    Unique Quality: Situated in East Berlin and the former DDR. You can still sense the way of life back then.

    Directions: Ten minutes walk from Alexanderplatz.

  • A good place to stay

    by

    I booked this hotel on Expedia, and got a real bargain for a single room. When I got there I was delighted to find I'd been given a suite!

    This hotel is excellent value for money, very clean, efficient and with a great breakfast. Not perhaps in the best location (though easy to get to from Alexanderplatz), it's only a short tram journey to the good bars and restaurants.

    Unique Quality: Balconies, some with views of the TV tower, some with views of the street.

Hi,
I've just booked a 3 day stay in Hotel Agon am Alexanderplatz from 23 - 26 Feb.
We're arriving at Schoenefeld airport at noon. Can anyone tell me what public transport we can take? How long is the journey and would it be covered by the Welcome Card?
Thanks in advance

Thanks for your help. I feel a lot better knowing how easy it is to get to our hotel from the airport.
By the way has anyone ever stayed in the Hotel Agon-am Alexanderplatz. What is it like? We got a great price three nights for the price of two. We're more interested in the location but hope that the hotel is nice and clean. On previous visits to other parts of Germany we have never yet found a hotel that wasn't clean.
Thanks
