My father and I stayed at the Monbijou Hotel for three nights, and had a wonderful experience. I am not quite sure why there are bad reviews (possibly American expectations?), but here is my experience:

The hotel itself was lovely. The lobby and dining area are beautifully appointed, the staff was very accommodating.

Yes, the rooms were small (for American standards), and yes the tv was very small. However, we did not come to Berlin to sit in our rooms and watch tv. Both of our rooms were EXTREMELY clean, the bed was very comfortable, the shower is wonderful (great pressure), and the rooms were consistently cool but not cold (it was 86 degrees out when we visited). My dad and I had separate rooms and we both felt there was adequate space to unpack our belongings and still move around comfortably (he is 6’ 3” tall, I am 5’ 4” tall). However he did say that he thought the room might be cramped if he had to share it with my mom!

The location of the hotel is everything. It is two blocks away from a major shopping and dining area, one block from a train station, with corner stores and restaurants literally right across the street, and situated next to a lovely park. Yet, it is very quiet, and also feels very safe. My father and I arrived at 8:30 pm and were able to walk across the street and have an amazing Italian dinner at a very reasonable price.

The one and only thing I would caution (as a woman who travels alone very frequently, and is overly cautious in new surroundings) is that there are no additional deadbolts or locks on the door (aside from the standard lock knob under the doorknob). This concerned me the first night, as it was a new place and I didn’t know how safe it was, and I ended up pushing a chair and my suitcase against the door. However, by the second night I felt completely comfortable with nothing against the door! Let me be clear, however, that I am an extremely cautious person and my fear had absolutely NOTHING to do with the hotel or location or staff. There were no “red flags”, just my own caution! My dad felt completely safe from night one, and travels very often!

Overall, if you are coming to Berlin to explore I would highly recommend the Monbijou Hotel. We will definitely be returning!

Having stayed at a number of Berlin hotels over the years, this trip I found the Monbijou. A gem just off the Hackescher markt, a great location with good public transport links for getting around the city. The hotel was very welcoming, although quite small the room was spotless and very comfortable and a bathroom with a lovely hot powerful shower. After a busy day out in the city you can relax in the hotel bar ( enjoy a local wine or your favorite tipple), again a warm and friendly environment, unlike many cold corporate hotel bars. Breakfast was a treat, with a good selection of local ingredients to set you up for a day out exploring the city. From check in to check out, all members of staff were helpful, friendly and happy to have a chat to make you feel welcome and at home. Thank you Monbijou for a delightful stay. Would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again on our next trip to Berlin.

I was part of a group of friends for this trip.
I had a a fabulous stay at this hotel at the start of October,
Arriving at midday, well before check in all five rooms were warmly greeted by the multi lingual staff and informed our rooms were ready , check in was swift and efficient.
Rooms were immaculately clean and decently equipped (only quibble is id like tea and coffee facilities)
Didn't use breakfast facilities on this occasion but it looked excellent and will use on my next stay.
Very comy beds , fantastic shower , front of house 10 out of 10 , bar staff could not be more helpful or attentive, nice choice of places to relax in hotel
I loved the roof top terrace and fire lit library.
The location is fantastic for local eating dinning and transport.
Also idea for museum district ,brandenburg gate , Jewish memorial, vw exhibition and check point Charlie etc in easy walking distance.
Will definitely recommend and already have next visit booked and can't wait for my next stay with my wife

A lovely, cosy hotel in a great location. Public transport near enough on the doorstep and Museum Island about 10 minutes walk. The surrounding area is quite nice to explore too, with plenty of shops and restaurants. I had a single comfort room, a good size, I could see the TV Tower and Berlin Dom from my window. Very comfortable bed, the German style double, with handy bedside tables on each side, a couple of little stools and a table at the foot of the bed. There was a hanging rail with hangers supplied and an area underneath that was just the right size for my suitcase to sit. There was also a safe, free of charge and the complimentary bottle of water waiting on arrival was a lovely touch. Very pleasant staff at reception. The rooms were cleaned daily and to a good standard. I did think the breakfast option was a wee bit overpriced, especially with such good cafes nearby, so I didn't bother. The bar area was very welcoming, with an open fire. I did go up to the roof terrace to enjoy the view, even if the bar up there wasn't open yet. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Berlin and would recommend to friends and family.

We stayed here as a couple last week for a few days. Overall, we found it a nice hotel, with comfortable, warm rooms, albeit a little on the small side but I'm not there to hold cocktail parties, it was a base to sleep and shower in and on both counts it served it's purpose.

It had a complimentary bottle of water (not replaced every day), and complimentary toiletries in the shower, and towels were changed every day whether you requested it or not.

One thing I did find strange in the room was that we had a double bed but two single duvets? I've never seen this anywhere else and it was a bit odd, especially when you wake up in the middle of the night with your foot freezing cold as it's been out from the duvet!

I can't really comment on the rest of the facilities as we never used them, we used it solely as a base and for that it was perfect. You are right in the centre of most things beside Hackesher Markt (get off here if you take the number 9 S Bahn from the airport, it's almost door to door) and from there you can walk to pretty much anywhere but the trams and S Bahn are so frequent you could use these to easily go anywhere you want all day, every day.

If you want a hotel with lots of extras and be served hand on foot, this ain't it. It's a quiet, leave you alone sort of hotel. If you need a nice comfy place to sleep and shower, in walking distance of transport or the rest of the city, this is a great base.

Booked a Cathedral view Suite for my week in Berlin hoping I'd have a chance to rest and relax. Unfortuantely the air-con is hard-locked from user control and will only cool the room to 27 c / 80 f, which is not exactly comfortable. There was a non-A/C fan at the bottom of the bed to provide some air circulation. You could open the windows but they were doing construction work on the tram lines with heavy machinery until midnight or later. So, poor sleep, poor experience.

For a long while Berlin has been on our hit-list, and with the excellent flight from Edinburgh we thought why not. My wife found this gem of a Hotel in the Mitte district, for a three night stay. Just got home last night thoroughly loving this place. For newbies to Berlin, the Mitte district is perfect. so easy to get to from Tegel airport (don't get a taxi, be brave and use the efficient public transport!), a very short walk from Hackescher Mkt station and we were at the hotel Monbijou. Smart building, and beautifully furbished inside. Warm friendly welcome from the staff, who throughout couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. And don't you just love it when you arrive at a hotel and the staff member on the desk says, we've upgraded your room to a suite. And wow, what a suite!!! Top floor corner with just the most stunning view of the Berlin Cathedral on museum island. what a sight to go to sleep to, and then to wake up gazing upon. The suite itself was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, the room well equipped, even had our favorite Molton Brown hand washes. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough

My partner and I have stayed at the beautiful Monbijou Hotel in Berlin and it's safe to say that we wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Berlin.

Everything about this hotel is perfect - the rooms, the design, the atmosphere, the amazing breakfast, the location - the list goes on! Above all, the staff are what make this hotel so special. They're so welcoming, attentive and kind and make you feel completely at home during your stay.

The bar/lounge/beautiful library area is gorgeous and you could quick easily spend hours sitting there with a book, relaxing and watching the world go by. It also has an incredible roof top terrace where you can grab a drink and see the skyline of the city - a must!

Perfect location for seeing all that Berlin has to offer with transport links a stones throw away, and so many sights within walking distance. It doesn't get better than Monbijou.

We are planning another trip to Berlin this summer and we know where we'll be staying!

This is a lovely hotel in a great location, close to museum island and shops/restaurants- all walking distance. The rooms are small but tidy and well done. The bathrooms are equally stylish with Molton Brown soaps/lotions. Best of all the lobby/ adjoining breakfast and bar area are spacious and full of interesting local art. There is a fireplace for evening drink and the breakfast is delicious. The hotel front desk staff was responsive to any and all requests. A great and reasonable choice for Berlin

Is breakfast included?
Answer from aprilamente
Rome, Italy2,099 contributions177 helpful votes
Breakfast is paid separately. It's expensive but it's gorgeous! So you can decide when to take it outside (there are several top breakfast spots in the surrounding area; the one "attached" to the Hotel is one of them...) and when to have it at Monbijou

You can take the bus to the main station, and then take the s-bahn to Hackescher Markt station and walk, as per the previous answer. But like everyone else, we took a taxi.

Planning on visiting berlin for Christmas markets and was wondering how far the hotel is from the main locations?
Answer from Francis V

It is within walking distance to museum island and Alexanderplatz, and it would be around a 30 minute walk to Branderburg Gate. But there is an S-Bahn station just round the corner and you can get to all the major locations in minutes. There is also a tram station literally next door. The area is nice, with plenty of bars and restaurants close by.
