In October 2013, we have opened our biggest IntercityHotel right in the middle of the pulsating metropolis Berlin, set directly at the main station. Within spitting distance, you can find some excitement here in the beautiful city centre with its important sights like the Federal Chancellery, the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, the shopping centre Friedrichstrasse or the legendary Ku'damm. From the centrally located IntercityHotel Berlin Hauptbahnhof, you find the best connections to all forms of local public transport within walking distance. Therefore, you can reach all of the interesting parts and sights of the city in no time. Regardless of whether you are in the city on business or for pleasure, you will immediately feel at home in one of our 412 delightfully furnished rooms with their modern colour concept. All the rooms are designed in warm brown and beige tones and topped off with stylish accents in terra cotta. Why not start the new day with a great range of delicious breakfast treats available from our sumptuous breakfast buffet. For the remaining meals you will certainly find something tasty in our restaurant or Bistro Lounge. It is our utmost pleasure to welcome all our guests in a warm and friendly manner, as with pleasure we strive to create a superb experience to all our clients visiting Berlin. For all IntercityHotels concerned the usage of the WLAN is free of charge up to 256 KB/s. (Parking fee from 01.01.2017: 25€)

This modern hotel is about 1 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhoff central station but very quiet in a decent road. Handy when you arrive in Berlin from the airport.

Very clean, helpful staff, good breakfast (didn’t need lunch!)

The room was clean and big enough for me but couples might want to opt for a Superior Room which they told me was much bigger and had coffee making facilities.

Would recommend to anyone who wants a good comfortable base to explore Berlin

The hotel is centrally located in Berlin, a 2 minute walk from the central station. The room was clean and modern with a nice walk-in shower. When we checked in we were offered a room upgrade to a "Quiet Room" for an extra 10 euros per night. The upgraded room is exactly the same, so we declined and then they offered it us for 5 euros a night, which we also declined. Even with the window open there wasn't any problem with noise in the standard room, so don't waste your money upgrading.

The air con in the room was useless. Even on the coldest setting and the highest fan speed the room was uncomfortably hot. We stayed for two nights in February, so goodness knows what it will be like in the summer months. The bed was too low which makes it difficult for someone with mobility problems to get out of bed.

A plus side to staying at the hotel was the free travel passes for every guest which is valid for the duration of their stay. The pass covers all zone (A,B and C) in Berlin for all forms of public transport and was very useful. It was even valid for the day we checked out, so we were able to use it to get to the airport to catch our flight back home.

This hotel is located right next to the central train station which is good if you want to go somewhere or get a rental car. Otherwise, it is probably the most artificial and sterile location of the whole city. You have to keep that in mind when coming to Berlin. For us it was good, as we were passing during our moving.
Therefore, we were positively surprised by the spaciousness of the room that we had which provided us with ample storage for the luggage. We were notified upon checking in that room cleaning will only be provided if the green card is placed on the door due to covid. That's a fair procedure. However, just when we were about to leave we found the remnants of an old tooth paste tube under the rim of the minibar which was not ours. This doesn't particularly create trust in the hygiene measures in these days. Apart from a brief oral apology at the check out, no compensation or recognition was provided.

We arrived at the hotel on the Friday afternoon, staff were very blunt and not that friendly, the foyer was beautiful but when you head to the room the complete opposite, smelly bathroom, room was boiling hot and no channels at all. Only thing that was good at the hotels were the cocktails and few of the bar staff that were lovely.

Would not recommend, area around hotel is poor and breakfast at a steep 15 euros a night. When you arrive they slap you with a 50 euro reservation fee which was not told to us at any point until we arrived.

Please do not stay here.

I stayed here with my husband and two teenagers from June 14 to 17th. Check-in took a bit longer than we expected, nothing to worry though. We booked two rooms, 367 and 369, almost next to each other(only one room in between); both were twin rooms. WI-Fi connection was good and the AC worked really well. Beds were comfortable and we had a good sleep because they were soundproof(hotel is located right next to Berlin Central Station). We had a nice view of the platforms and part of the city. Bathroom was okay with decent shower space. Breakfast was great all along. We also took full advantage of the Intercity Pass which allowed us to have free transportation throughout the city during the length of our stay(one pass for each guest). We didn't request to store our luggage but we could see the hotel has a secured room for that.

I give this hotel a rating of 4 instead of 5 because they never cleaned our room during our entire stay and no, we neither opted out of the cleaning option nor placed the "do not disturb" sign on the doorknob; meanwhile, our teenage kids's room was cleaned every single day. This is very important because they make a point about charging a 50 euros fine for whatever they find out of order inside the room. We're not dirty people and are certainly not messy or cluttery but we almost ran out of toilet paper among other neccesary things. I thought that the girl on reception would ask us about our stay during check-out so that we could address the issue but she did things so automatically that there was no room for feedback; regardless of this issue, we would stay here again.

Very bad stay. As other people have mentioned the room was way too hot and a horrible sewage smell from the shower too. Ended up booking another hotel after we were promised a full refund, the conversation to which I have on record. We then receive a phone call after a few minutes saying they cannot offer a refund, even for the future nights we did not stay.
Absolutley disgusting service, they also said there wasn't a duty manager which is illegal and unsafe. DO NOT GO HERE. It will ruin your trip to Berlin which would otherwise be an incredible holiday.

In the end we booked the Novotel Mitte which isn't much further away but with exceptional service and biggerand better luxury rooms (with fans and clean smells) all for more than half the price of Intercity. Would definitely recommend you look at Accor hotels first (Ibis, Mercure Novotel) as they actually have standards.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights 18th to 21st September. We couldn't fault the hotel. It isn't a boutique hotel but had everything you needed. The staff were efficient. A request for extra pillows was immediately met and the room they gave us was quiet and spacious with two windows. The breakfast buffet was good. Trains, buses and trams are all close by and there is a nice Peter Pane Burger restaurant a few minutes walk through to the other side of the Station concourse. Once you find your bearings, it is easy to walk down to the river and cross one of the bridges to get to the Reichstag building etc. The free travel passes the hotel provided were very useful. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thank you. Mr and Mrs Taylor.

1) This hotel is 5 mins walk from Berlin Hauptbahnhof, very convenient when traveling by train.
2) Reception staff was very helpful and efficient. Our Standard Double Room was spacious, well maintained. Bathroom was clean, towels soft and clean. All necessary toiletries were provided.
3) Breakfast was included and had a huge spread. There were counters for fresh preparations, cheese, desserts, fresh fruits, juices, tea/coffee. We enjoyed the BF every day during our stay, it was impeccable.
4) The Hop-on-Hop-off bus stop was just outside the hotel, so we could easily travel every day to the far attractions without any travel hassles.
5) Many major attractions were on walking distance and we enjoyed leisurely walking trips to many of them.
6) Most commendable : Our checkout time was early morning before BF time, as we wanted to catch an early train. Reception staff informed us that we can remind them the earlier night and they will provide us with packed breakfast for two. And so did they. The packed BF was so huge, that we could finish only one for BF and finished another at lunch time during our travel. It was a nice gesture and very thoughtful on their part.
7) Overall, it was an Excellent stay and I definitely recommend this hotel while traveling to Berlin.

Their reception trainee decided to add breakfast without request - which was then added to the holding transaction of €50 on my card - then they decided to add more to the holding transaction, to pay for the cost of the room I had already paid for on hotels.com. It’s now sitting at €186.49 two weeks later & they keep claiming they cancelled it but the bank doesn’t say that.

This hotel is located within 3 minutes' walk from Berlin Central Station (Hauptbahnhof). It's an easy walk on paved streets/corridors to the hotel even if you have heavy luggage. This is a great location for getting around Berlin and very safe. Hotel was clean, rooms good size with lots of outlets even in the bathroom, has a safe and mini fridge, staff was very friendly, and we even got free train tickets good for our length of stay on all forms of transportation in and around the city and airport! You may also store your luggage for free a couple hours before and after your stay.

There's a bar and restaurant on site with breakfast for 16 euro/pp but a quick breakfast can also be had at McDonald's (plus other restaurants) in Central Station just 3 minutes away!

Loved this hotel and will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Berlin.
