"Pleasant hotel" Berlin Excelsior Hotel Tip by moonbeam9

Berlin Excelsior Hotel, Berlin: 1,612 reviews and 0 photos

Location is good - only a 5 minute walk to the Zoo S and U bahn stations and the starting point for the X9 and 109 buses to Tegel. The trip to Tegel on the X9 bus is about 15 minutes while the 109 takes about 20 minutes. The 100 and 200 buses that run east-west through Berlin start and end here.

Rooms facing the back of the hotel are very quiet whereas the ones at the front face a noisy, busy street. We had a problem with the air conditioning in our room and had to keep the small window open. Luckily, our room was in the back, it was September and the weather was cool.

The room was well decorated and clean but very small for a four star hotel. The closet was also very small and hard to use. The condition of the hotel was very good.

The breakfast buffet was excellent with a good selection of items. Although the Excelsior has a restaurant, we found a number of more interesting ones in the area behind the hotel around Savigny platz.

Most residents appeared to be business or independent travelers. Only one small tour group was observed. Staff was very helpful at a very early checkout and brought us juice and coffee from the closed breakfast room.

Although we had no serious problems at the hotel, we would choose a different hotel next time. We only stayed at the hotel for 2 days and could live with the small room. A longer stay would be less pleasant and very cramped.
