The hotel was basic and had a vibe of being more like a hostel, but the room we had was clean and nicely-decorated/furnished, while the staff were friendly and the hotel overall had a lovely, safe atmosphere. It was a fabulous location - right next to the Hbf and most of the bus tours (we booked Circle Line) pick up and drop off right outside the hotel (pic attached shows just how close they are!). There was a small ball pool in reception which my daughter (age 5) loved playing in, plus lots of comfy seating, a pool table and bar/restaurant. Our room overlooked some of the train station platforms but we were never disturbed by noise. The only criticism I have is our pillows were really really lumpy and uncomfortable.

I went to Berlin with 3 friends for a girls weekend.
The hotel was in a strategic position, perfect location for those who wants to be near the public transport, and at the seme time near the main city attractions.
this Hotel is 10 minutes away (by foot) from the Reichstag and 15 minutes from the Brandenburger Tor.
The price is also adequate.
I'll suggest this accomodation for all types of holidays, for a friends or a business stay.

Stayed In this hostel as part of a University trip to Berlin.

The hostel staff were very friendly, both on reception and the bar. Ordered a tequila sunrise from the bar and did not realise how strong it would be (measures for spirits in the UK are different to Germany), the man at the bar gave me nearly a whole bottle of orange juice to put in my drink because I found it so strong haha, we had a laugh about it and they was happy enough to make my drink taste not so strong.

We mostly used this hostel as a base, as we travelled around a lot collecting data for our uni assessment, but the beds were surprisingly comfortable, and the shower had a decent water pressure, (most hotels/hostels in the UK the water just dribbles out the shower). The room was also very clean, and cleaners came in every day to clear the bins and provide new toilet rolls etc.

Only issue I found with the room is that it was so so hot. They have fans in the bedroom but it only makes the room 2°c colder than what it is outside, however I kept the window open all night, left the curtains open and just shut the blinds which are on the outside of the windows, this seemed to cool the room better than the fan.

The hostel is quite central, to get to the main sites it’s about 10-15min walk. There is the main train station opposite the hostel, and behind there, there is a bus station so if you need to get anywhere there’s plenty of options.

A couple recommendations:

1) A 15 min walk can lead you to Murphys bar, right next to the river. It was an absolute beautiful location. It’s an Irish bar and everyone is very friendly.

2) We went on a free walking tour of Berlin, cant remember our tour guides name but she was brilliant, if you’re looking for a tour of Berlin which shows you all the sites and want to learn about the history of each place, definitely go in a tour with them. The tour was 3.5 hours and it’s the most interest 3.5 hours of my entire trip to Berlin. Was so informative and helpful.

We stayed in the Meininger between Christmas and New Year. We had stayed in a Meininger in Brussels before a few years back and were happy with that so we decided to book again. This time we were in a private twin room - it was quite small for two people, but it was okay. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, so it suited us fine.
The room was well presented and the bin was emptied daily. There was no cleaning of the room though, beyond the bin being emptied.
The location is ideal - just a 1 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof and all of the shops, cafés and transport links you get there.
The bar downstairs is open fairly late and you can sit downstairs with your own food and drinks.
The price was reasonable, given its location and if you're happy for a sort of hybrid between a hostel and a hotel then I would definitely recommend it.

Dear Peter, Thank you for your detailed review. We are very happy top hear that you like the concept of our company. As our houses are located in very central locations to provide the best possible experience. Since a few months we do follow a go green concept, as a part of it we do the cleaning during the stay only on request. That means that a cleaning is still possible during your stay but will not be provided automatically anymore. This way we try to safe water and detergent to do something good for our environment. We are very sorry if this wasn't communicated properly, but we hope you still had a great time in Berlin. Kind regards your MEININGER team

Stayed here at the end of jan with a few friends, we had a four persons room (two bunk beds). The rooms were basic as expected, the bathroom was clean. Good location for the hotel, we were able to walk to most of the tourist attractions, if not we just got an Uber (cheaper that meter taxis).
Would stay again

Really bad costumer service! I would not recommend it. I booked a stay for 9 people for the end of April 2020. We are unable to go because everything got cancelled because of Covid 19. I contacted all hotels of our trip. All hotels gave us a refund or allowed us to change the dates for another time. This hostel said they would not provide with a refund (which I can understand) or allow us to change dates. It's unbelievable how rude. When I explained the situation they said it was not their fault. I tried to contact them again no answer. Just really poor service and not helpful at all!

Where do I start, don’t bother trying to be served at reception or the bar unless you’re anything but German it seems. Constantly got blanked whilst I was waiting for service and others walking straight up and being served straight away. No heating was working in our absolutely minuscule room which was barley big enough for two let alone 4 people crammed into bunk beds which made it impossible to manoeuvre around each other.

The cash machine wasn’t working, the beer was flat and the staff were incredibly blunt and rude. The only good part was the train station facilities across the road, as we didn’t dare try the breakfast at this hotel.

Honestly do not bother booking this place Unless you want a 08:30 knock every morning by housekeeping (numerous times) despite the fact you have a do not disturb sign on your door - such a shame as Meininger hotels/hostels are usually very good.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your sincere review, we highly appreciate your feedback in order to improve our services. We are upset to hear about your experience with our staff. We are sorry to read about the inconveniences which occurred during your stay and understand this must have been a very unpleasant experience for you. We are sorry to note that you were not totally satisfied with your stay at MEININGER Berlin. Our concept is indeed being a mixture of a hotel and hostel - combining the best from both. As we offer both private rooms and dormitories, we attract a broad range of guests, from groups, families to backpackers. The facilities are basic and the atmosphere is informal. We understand that not everybody likes our concept. We hope you were able to enjoy Berlin at least. Take care and safe travels! Sincerely your MEININGER team

I had a really nice time at this hotel. It was great value for money and the location excellent . They have great facilities at the hotel including a kitchen and laundry facilities. This alone saved me a lot of money

You are a stone throw from the main train station which is like a mini mall and walking distance from Brandenburg gate and reichstag

Berlin is a great city snd the staff were friendly and helpful.

Already planning next trip

My husband and I had a great stay at this hotel, it is excellent value for money.
The location is fantastic, you can easily visit all the sites and it's right near central station from where you can get a direct train to the airport,
The hotel is very clean and has everything you could possibly need.
Breakfast was buffet style and was excellent.
The staff were so lovely, always smiling and nothing was too much trouble.
We will definitely be going back.

Looking at some other reviews which say that the staff here are unhelpful and rude and the rooms are very warm in hot weather. This cannot be further from the real truth. All of the staff I encountered in my three night stay were very polite and very helpful. The room is comfortable and as other reviews say yes they don't have air conditioning but they do have an air coil cooling system that cools the room to 3 degrees lower than outside. This coil system worked fairly well and the room was not too hot considering it was 30 degrees outside.
Overall I would stay here again and as I always say don't always listen to some reviewers when they say staff are rude and unhelpful as in my experience it is usually the guest who is rude.
