Profile: Mitte

Profile: Mitte

Mitte boasts a throng of bustling hotspots and avenues, including the trendy Hackescher Markt and Oranienburger Strasse. Popular with tourists and locals alike, these lively streets in central Berlin offer plenty of spots to enjoy a bite to eat and experience the Berliner-style nightlife.

No vacation in Mitte would be complete without a visit to the Brandenburg Gate. This 18th-century architectural marvel is the only surviving monument of its kind in Berlin. Mitte is also a gateway to the Berlin from Below tour of the underground WWII bunkers and cold war defense shelters.

    Very enjoyable stay!

    Location was the best thing. Right in the centre, next to the New Synagogue, it’s within walking distance (about 10-minute walk) to anything in Berlin Centre, such as Alexanderplatz or Reichstag. It was a nice and calm place. The staff there were really friendly, always helping you in case of needing it. We were originally five, but due to personal reasons, one of the friends couldn’t make it, so when we informed the staff about this situation, they were completely ok with it (obviously they didn’t give the money back, but it was understandable as we informed on the day we got there). Breakfast is ok, worth it for 5€, as it’s a buffet, and you can eat as much food as you want, but it did lack a bit of choice to be honest, it included bread, jam, butter, cereals, yogurt, fruit and some orange juice. Although whenever you wanted you could have free coffee, tea, or water throughout the day, which was very generous. They have a happy hour which everyone really enjoyed! The WiFi works great, and kitchen facilities are good! The room was clean, bed sheets and towels provided, and quite spacious. But be aware cleaning staff do enter throughout the day, which we were not informed about and really didn’t want them to. The bathroom facilities were not bad, but could have been better, as the two showers next to our bedroom didn’t work, so we had to go over to the other side, but they were clean, which is the main thing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

    Visite en famille

    Très contente d'avoir choisi cet hôtel. L'emplacement était parfait tout proche des lieux de tourisme. Les toilettes sont nettoyées quotidiennement et à part certains clients qui laissent trainer leurs affaires l'état de propreté est correct. L'accueil est très sympathique et l'équipe est à l'écoute. Je reviendrais sans hésiter si je dois repasser à Berlin. PS: J'ai pris une chambre familiale avec toilettes communes

    Wir hatten ein Zimmer für 8 Personen und zu sehen, dass unser Zimmer recht groß war, hat uns gefreut. Leider stand im Zimmer kein Spiegel. Unser Zimmer war in einer der höchsten Stöcke, statt Wände hatten wir Glasfenster, was super toll aussah. Die Toiletten befinden sich im „Flur“, dh. man besitzt keine eigenen Toiletten. Mit der Erfahrung war ich ganz zufrieden.

    Too old..

    Vi var ute på en första tågluff ever och jag tänkte att hostels är en stor del av detta fenomen. Så det fick bli hostel i Berlin (hotell och pensionat resten av resan) 650 kr för två/två nätter var absolut ett bra pris. Om man räknar sömnen som en bekvämlighet så kanske det hade varit värt att lägga till några hundralappar och välja något annat. Lövtunna väggar (allt allt allt hördes) och fest långt in på natten. Tror att personal var uppe någon gång och påminde om "tyst kl 22". Vi fick rum mot innegården där man oxå hade rökplats. Kanske lite tystare ut mot vägen. Passar helt klart yngre människor (under 25? Jag höjde medelåldern med 20 år typ) som är ute och lever livet. Man lär absolut känna nytt folk och det var en väldigt mysig lounge där man kunde spela biljard och hänga. På rummet fanns skåp (ta med hänglås) och dörren in till rummet hade kortlås. Toalett och dusch kunde varit renare men funkade. Bra att man hade både dusch och toa på samma ställe.

    Struttura spettacolare! Ben organizzata e pulitaaa, alla reception bravissimi ragazzi pronti ad aiutarti. Atrio in stile pub, punto d'incontro per tutti quelli che alloggiano in ostello dove prendersi una birra e fare amicizia. Asciugamani puliti sempre disponibili, cestello con prodotti per l'igiene disponibili da condividere, tre bagni per ogni piano sempre puliti! Situato per di più in piano centro! wow

    Хостел в центре

    При заселении выдали комнату на 4 этаже, лифт сломан, в комнате грязно и дырявая простынь, воняло . Так как комнаты микс, то выбора женской комнаты не было изначально. Я обратилась на ресепшн и мне поменяли номер на первом этаже полностью женский. Персонал очень дружелюбный. Комната чистая, ванная общая на этаж. Кровати очень скрипучие и нет освещения для каждой кровати, т.к они двухэтажные. Все перекрывает расположение отеля. В шаговой доступности исторический центр и метро. На ораниенбаумштрассе куча кафе . Фридрихштрассе и река рядом 100 метров. Со станции на фридрихштрассе метро с основными линиями. Отличный завтрак всего за 5 евро мюсли, сыр, ветчина, йогурт.

    とても多くの部屋があるホステルです。 エレベーターが故障していたのが、難点でしてたが、水回りは綺麗でした。 バランスが良いお宿だと思います。
