This review is not about the Ibis (this is next door) but about the Hotel Ibis Budget Potsdamer Platz - which is not included in the VT hotel list (yet). The Ibis Budget is a former ETAP Hotel.



What a find! Looking on www.hrs.de for cheapish accommodation in Berlin, we stumbled over this hotel – which BTW is NOT at Potsdamer Platz but about 700 metres and one subway stop away.

The Ibis Budget is in a quiet street at Anhalter Bahnhof (an attraction in its own right), next door to the “normal” Ibis Hotel and the Novotel, so an agglomeration of hotels of the Accor chain. They share a good underground carpark.

The room was basic but very modern, functional and clean. Not even a hairdryer was in the room – but you cannot ask for everything when you pay only 53 Euro for single and 63 Euro for double occupancy at such a great location. (I had a twin room which Kimi the Bear found very pleasant...) From Anhalter Platz you are at Potsdamer Platz, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie, Topographie des Terrors, etc. in no time; the U-Bahn and S-Bahn connections are fabulous, and from Potsdamer Platz you can hop on the famous #100 and 200 buses.

When I say “basic” this means that the room lacks the feeling of warmth (although it is well heated!), it is rather clinically sterile. The handwash basin is in the room, the shower is a shower cubicle separated from the room by a glass or acrylic door (can’t remember). At least the toilet is in a separate room and even rather spacious. There is a flatscreen TV in the room and a telephone, aircondition, plus free WLAN is available.

I would stay there again for sure if there are no super specials for more comfortable hotels at a similarly great location.

What I didn’t do and would not do is having breakfast at the hotel. Everything might be ok but the look of the lot of people nearly sitting on each other’s lap and carrying trays around like in an overcrowded canteen is not my idea of a nice breakfast. There are so many bakeries in Berlin that you can get a bite in nicer atmosphere about everywhere.

The Ibis Budget brand BTW is the former ETAP Hotel chain.

More of these hotels in Berlin are at Alexanderplatz, in the East (Ibis Budget Berlin Ost) and further away from the centre in Hoppegarten, Henningsdorf, Schönefeld and Genshagen.

Directions: Next to Anhalter Bahnhof (U-Bahn station), 700 metres from Potsdamer Platz, 300 metres from Checkpoint Charlie.

If you have stayed in any Ibis hotel, you know exactly how this room look like. Most of them are exactly the same. That's what I like in Ibis... No surprises. But in this particular hotel I had a good surprise. It is very well located. A few minutes away Potsdamer Platz. And it has a very good price.

I loved Berlin. A very beautiful and calm city. This hotel was the cheery in the top of the cake as we say here in Brazil

Unique Quality: It is located 10 min walking from Potsdamer Platz, Sony center, Berlin Philharmonic, checkpoint Charlie and other attractions. 50 m away from a subway station. Good restaurant inside the hotel.

Directions: 10 min walking from Potsdamer Platz
