For a hostel, this was clean and extremely hospitable. The woman at the counter was patient and helpful. The place was easy to find and had very good amenities. We had bought a private room, and we got a massive room all to ourselves with an en-suite bathroom as good as any hotel in Berlin (minus a bath of course)! Our possessions were secure, locked in the room with a key card. I couldn't rave more about the All-in hostel.
Expected it to be good but this hotel exceeded my expectations... Good location, within walking distance from streets lined with restaurants but still quiet enough to not even know you are in a main city.. Rail / metro link about 10 minute walk away and taxis on standby outside the hotel. Highly recommended.
Just outside the door you can take a train anywhere or even better, you can see the delightful East Side Gallery on the Berlin Wall. I'm almost reluctant to divulge this best kept secret in Berlin. Would highly recommend.
We stayed at the Almodovar for a week and it was our first holiday in Berlin. We chose the hotel because we are vegetarian and vegan and we were also impressed by the hotels green and organic credentials.
We were made very welcome by the staff and enjoyed wonderful breakfasts and evening meals in the Bardot restaraunt
attached to the hotel, which had a very cool, laid back atmosphere.
Our rooms were very comfortable (wonderful mattress!) and clean - we chose a room overlooking the courtyard so we weren't bothered by traffic noise (its on a tram route)
"Boutique hotel, with a feel of being family owned"
I stayed for 5 nights at the New Berlin Hotel. After a small issue with one of my rooms in the older block, I was very kindly transferrred to a room in the modern building. This room was fantastic. Great facilities, modern appointments. The staff were consistently helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I feel the staff really contributed to the overall positive experience I had. The breakfast buffet was fantastic, great choices, helpful staff, a real treat.

The New Berlin is a 4-star hotel in Berlin situated in Friedrichshain , one of the oldest parts of the city. This …More
Hotel is in a fantastic building. It has a very interesting mix of old and new which is quite common in Berlin. Very easy to get to from the airport and great starting point for sight seeing dur to close proximity to the train station. No free wifi in the room but you can access it for free in the lobby. The bar is also very nice and has good beer.
Formerly in East Berlin, the arrival of MTV Europe and other media companies has enhanced Friedrichshain’s reputation as one of the liveliest, most fashionable areas in Berlin. Its pubs, clubs and cafés centre round Boxhagener Platz and Simon-Dach-Strasse, and a long section of the Berlin Wall remains on Mühlen Strasse. Karl-Marx-Allee is a testament to Stalinist architecture; the Volkspark Friedrichshain houses the Brothers Grimm Fountain.
