    Individually Owned Budget Hotel

    by

    The Kolo is located in a quiet residential area on the interface of the Wedding and Pankow districts. Before the iron curtain was lifted, this street had quite literally been a dead end with the wall separating the free from the communist world. Having said it's quiet, I must add that there is some noise from starting and landing planes, but this will be soon over as nearby Tegel airport will close soon. Also, already now the airport does not operate during nighttime hours. The surrounding neighbourhood doesn't contain any real tourist attractions but is quite typically Berlin and contains many beautifully restored city tenement houses from the fin-de-siècle period. Nearby Wollankstraße features the nearest S-Bahn station with good connections to the transport hubs Gesundbrunnen and Friedrichstraße. In Wollankstraße you'll also find an interesting mix of small shops and ethnic restaurants, especially if you go beyond the S-Bahn track into the Pankow district.

    Unique Quality: Like many other budget hotels, the Kolo satisfies the demand for the gap between a cheap youth hostel with very basic services and the standard 3-star tourist hotels. As most of the accommodation consists of small apartments with 2 sleeping rooms, it is especially recommendable for young families with children travelling on a budget. Of course, it is equally suitable for other small groups. The owners run it on a part-time basis so you cannot expect 24/7 service. When there is no one in the house, the keys can be obtained from a door-attached safe. It's a good idea to make arrangements for check-in and check-out with the very friendly and practical owners. I have twice used the ground floor apartment No. 23 which offers basic wheelchair access (bathroom is a bit narrow, not really much room to make transfers). A definite pro is the very good breakfast, definitely above hostel standards. Especially the owners create a friendly and warm vibe -- I really like this place and would prefer it anytime over more expensive but soulless chain hotels.

    Very good value for your money

    We stayed at Kolo 77 thanks to the diligence of VT'er RhineRoll, who also has special needs and Kolo 77 fullfilled them.

    If I was to describe this place, I'd say it is a mix of a hotel with a youth hostel and an apartment building and at the time of our stay, it had a mixed crowd of families with children, families without children and young, independent travelers.

    Kolo is located on the neighborhood of Gesundbrunnen, not far from Tegel airport and it has an S-bahn station about 5-10 minutes away. This seems to be a relatively new place and run by friendly locals.

    Our total price for 3 people was 92 EUR per apartment per night.

    Unique Quality: The good:

    Our apartment had 2 bedrooms and space for 7 people. We had a small kitchen with coffee/tea making facilities and our room was wheelchair friendly. In our rate, breakfast was included and it was the usual mix of bread, rolls, jam, cereal, müsli, yogurt and cold cuts. They made eggs on order and how we wanted them. There were extra blankets, in case the ones on the beds weren't enough.

    The bad:

    - It's on the flight path of Tegel airport so there is a lot of noise coming from planes landing (I didn't see any plane taking off), so bring earplugs. However, that problem will solve itself out as a new airport is being built and Tegel will eventually close.

    - The towels are a little bit on the small side.

    - They don't accept cards, except for the German EC cards.

    Directions: S-bahn: Wollankstrasse.
