"Great low budget hotel!"
The rooms are small, but perfect for travelling. The location was great, right next to the train station. I would highly recommend this hotel to people who don't need a large room, just somewhere to put their things and sleep. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Centrally located, which is the concept"
Rooms too small. It was myself and my children who are 16 and 21. We were crammed in the room which is different from the other meininger that we stayed in the other cities but doable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Next to Berlin HBF train station"
Excellent everything except for the wifi in the room, it didn't work!Genuine Expedia guest review
"More hostel than hotel"
We picked it because of location (Berlin Mitte) and price ($70 for four people) so I did not expect luxury. It's cramped, with LOTS of students, but more or less comfortable (two bunk beds in a room the size of a large cracker box) for the price. The one thing that was annoying was the folks in the next room who had probably partied all night in the […] city, then came back to their room at about 5 am and were LOUD until about 7am. My wife said: "Not sure I would want to stay there again." I am ambivalent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice, modern hostel in great location"
This was my first time staying at a hostel and I've been told that this hostel is a lot nicer and more modern than most. While the room is small, everything (including the bathroom, which is always really important to me) was very clean and well maintained. The shared kitchen is great and breakfast is a good deal (all you can eat and drink for €6). […] The location is very strategic. You can't find a hotel closer to the Central station. There's a good mix of people staying here: families, big groups of friends, couples and solo travelers. Everyone seems to respect each other's quiet time at night, which is great. I would stay here again next time I'm in Berlin. The only downside is that the wireless was really slow. Also, hotels.com should clarify that this is a hostel.

"Walking steps to the train station"
Good staff and exactly opposite side of the main train station.. average rooms but clean.. you might be annoyed because there are too much students which makes the internet connection so weak and disconnected regularly. . But overall it's good for a short stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable place to stay right by the train"
The Meininger was a decent place to stay for the money. Our double room was a bit small but the hotel makes up for it with lots of common space.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by MEININGER Hotel Berlin Central Station Thanks for your comment! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to see you again in one of our MEININGER Hotels ;-)
The location was godd for train travelers. The front desk person needs more training as he was unable to find our pre-paid reservation booked through hotels.com without assistance from other staff. It would have been nice if the promised washer and dryer had worked. But it was very clean and there were families as well as single travelers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by MEININGER Hotel Berlin Central Station Dear Barbara, thank you very much for your comment. We are sorry that one of our staff members could not find your reservation in the first moment. But with help of someone else and your booking confirmation or the correct name of the person who booked the room, we were able to check you in. Unfortunately the washing machine was out of order during your stay, but it is already been fixed and working again ;-) We hope to see you again in one of our MEININGER Hotels! Your MEININGER Team
"Very basic, convenient hotel"
There is nothing special about the hotel, but it is very close to the Central Train Station. It was very convenient for forward travel. The room offered the basics, but little more. It was small, but it was a single room. I would recommend if you are taking the train, but don't expect luxury. Fairly priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find this hotel"
Location is very convenient for further travel and for the city sightseeing. Staffs are all friendly; we are not big size people, so we had a nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very convenient to the Hauptbanhof and was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Add an "s" to hotel and you get hostel"
This family of 3 adults (1 late 20's and 2 in their 50's) had a late night arrival at Berlin's Schonefeld Airport and an early morning departure from Tegel Airport. Staying near the Haupbanhof Berlin was our solution and, thus, our reservation at Hotel Meininger. A midnight arrival in the lobby was like walking into a university dorm party -- loud, […] boisterous, teens and 20-somethings. Check-in was quick and room was easy to find. Despite the room being right at the elevator and the noise of the lobby, it was quiet and peaceful in the building. Noise from the neighboring taxi stand was bearable. Notably, nowhere in the hotel listing did we realize that a "room for 3" was really 2 bunk beds. Minimalist room -- no phone, no clock, no closet. But, it was CLEAN, it was CONVENIENT, and it was CLOSE. So, despite a near-hostel experience, it wasn't bad -- just not quite what we expected. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More like a hostel, better for backpackers"
It was literally right next to the train station so it is a good location if you have to catch a very early morning train as I did. It is a short walk from the Reichtag, Bradenburg gate and Holocaust memorial. However, the hotel felt more like a hostel than a hotel. Many groups of kids and backpackers. Very loud and extremely busy with young students. […] The breakfast was not included and cost 5 euro per person but was not worth the price at all. Nothing there except coffee, some bread a couple cereals and very basic meat and cheese. Would have been way better to just go across the street to the train station for breakfast and much cheaper. The room was small and not that comfortable. We could not get the AC to work and it was very hot. I would only recommend this hotel for backpackers or those looking for hostels though the price is higher than what you would pay at a hostel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Utilitarian at its best"
This hotel is NO frills, but it is very clean, well maintained and friendly. We had a family of four which is hard to find rooms for - this hotel offers rooms with two bunk beds, which worked great. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and new. Just don't plan on spending any time in your room, because they're very small with almost […] no sitting space. If you just want a great location for somewhere to crash, this is it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and recommended"
The hotel is nice and well located. Because of the proximity to the Berln train station, it is possible to go to every where around Berlin. Another consideration is the hotel is near by the Chancelor and Bundestag (5 minutes walk) and Branderg Gate. The staffs are so kind and everytime we need, they helped us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience vs Comfort"
Meininger Hotel is very convenient to Berlin's Hauptbahnhof. Two years ago I had a nice single room and admired the modern, clean, spare look and the "no frills" attitude that prevailed at every turn. I returned hoping to have a similar experience. This time I was offered a room that resembled a jail cell in size--it was barely wider than the doorway […] at its widest. Except for 3 hangers, there was no place to hang my clothing. 4 small shelves right next to the door had to serve as the space to lay out my clothing. I had to push my suitcase under the narrow single bed in order to be able to pass to the window and a small ledge (both about 2 ft wide) that passed for a desk. Clearly, room 503--a wedge about 10 ft long and 4 ft wide at the entrance that tapered off to a 2 feet outside wall with a window-- is uninhabitable and this space should have been added to one of the adjacent rooms. Bathroom lacked any usable ledge to place my toiletries, and a customary glass for toothbrushes wasn't provided either. My room wasn't made up until late afternoon, and that only upon request at the reception. The hotel is full of high-school aged kids for whom such conditions might be acceptable. For me, however, this was my last visit at the Meininger. With other hotels nearby and only marginally more expensive, I'll opt for more civilised conditions. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Meininger Hotel Berlin Hauptbahnhof - Convenient"
Very convenient location almost attached to the Berlin Hauptbahnhof within sight of the Reichstag. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the room comfortable. Others are bothered by the sound of the announcements from the rail station but it was more pleasant and less loud than average city noises of traffic, happy passersby and garbage […] trucks. Lots of students use this hotel so it is worth having an earlier breakfast to avoid the crowds in the breakfast room. The breakfast is basic but adequate and reasonably priced. There are lots of food options available right next door at the rail station. We would use this hotel anytime for another Berlin trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is located just steps away from Berlins Haupt Bahnhof-main station. You have all Berlin long distance trains, subways and buses out the door! The hotel is within 15 minutes of all Berlin tourist sites either by bus, walking or subway. The Reichstag and the Brandenberg Gate are just minutes away on foot. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and […] speak English well. Someone is always working at the check-in desk. They were able to make me a new reservation keeping the same room the next day. The hotel has everything you need for a great stay in Berlin. I highly recommend this hotel. For a great stay in Berlin at excellent rates, this is the hotel to stay in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is right next to the Hauptbahnhof, main train station. All public transportation is within a short walking distance. Train, S Bahn, subway, busses, taxis. All of Berlin and more can be easily reached from here. It is also in walking distance from the Brandenburg-gate, Unter den Linden and Tiergarten. I could run from the hotel to the Tiergarten […] in the morning for training. The location is perfect. The hotel itself was frequented by lots of young people, school classes. But still quiet. Clean too. Everything is easy to get there and the service is excellent. The rooms are small and simple, designed for young people. I would stay there again. But if one is looking for luxury, this would not be the hotel to stay in. It is a very youthful ambiente. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Meininger Berlin - close to Hauptbanhof"
Pros: Very close to Berlin Hbf; walking distance to few attractions - Branderberg Tor, Holocaust memorial. Cons: Extremely small rooms. Absolutely no space to walk or even keep suitcases, may prove to be too difficult for families. In our case, our room was also not ready at check in time - even though we were given the keys to the room. The hostel […] like atmosphere may work for the budget conscious.

"Handy to hauptbahnhof!"
Room is compact, but well appointed, clean, and perfectly adequate for a brief stopover. Staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Hotel is close to everything, and a 2 minute walk from central station. I will definitely use this hotel chain again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a small room - way over priced?????"
The reception were friendly - really a hostel and not an hotel. The room I stayed was extremely small and was charged way over the odds. At the reception I was informed that the rate in Euros but my CC was charged in GB Pounds. I was overcharged. Someone is making a killing. NOT HAPPY.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent budget hotel"
This hotel borders on being a hostel. It is a budget hotel with basic rooms and limited comfort. The rooms lack life, the beds are very firm and questionably clean, but the bathroom was surprisingly updated and very clean. MEININGER, however, is a great hotel chain for young budget travelers. The location is right next to Berlin Hbf station, so for […] those backpacking around Europe and taking trains, this hotel is an excellent choice. From the hotel, you're 15 mins walk to many sights such as Victory Column, the glass-domed parliament building, and Brandenburg Gate. For Mauerpark market or East Side Gallery (both I would highly recommend), you should take a 15-20 min bike ride to reach (the hotel has a bicycle rental service and the bikes are in good condition with sturdy locks. Honestly, Berlin is best accessed by bike). Finally, the hotel's surrounding neighborhood is breathtaking, with giant ultra modern buildings blending in with older Berlin. I loved my budget stay in Berlin and for low-cost leisure travels, MEININGER is a decent choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location. Great Staff."
I'd read some negative comments about the hotel before I stayed there, so was slightly concerned. I booked a 'small room' and was expecting it to be a tiny noisy hot cupboard, I was WRONG! the room was a normal size, had a double bed, wardrobe (only three hangers) desk table and large bathroom. The room was slightly warm, but an open window for an hour […] soon cooled it down. The room was quiet even though its next to the train station. I only have two areas that could be improved, one is the towels are very thin and scratchy and two the hotel attracts a lot of young groups which meant breakfast a bit hectic, maybe a staggered service might be a better option for groups. The front desk staff were all very helpful and friendly,but the main reason to stay here is location. And in a city with so much to do and see, you should consider how much time do you want to spend in a hotel room. Go out and explore.! and use this as a base to sleep.

Good Hotel, rooms are small compared to many hotels, but it works fine. I just needed a room to crash in, this was perfect. Room and bathroom was clean. The WiFi is terrible, if you absolutely need WiFi, I would check another hotel. The surrounding neighborhood is under construction, so it's almost deserted at night other than the train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, overpriced."
Stayed in sister hotel the previous 3 days(which cost not much more for those 3 days). I booked the single room(which was really a bed in a hallway!). It looked like I could of booked the family room for the same price but I didn't want to deprive somebody the opportunity. In reality, you pay for the location but, as anybody who knows how perfect […] the transport system is in Berlin. You don't really need to bother. The airport is easily accessible from virtually anywhere. £70 was too much for 'a pillow'! Nonetheless, it's clean and the staff are equally tremendous as Prenzlauer hotel. Maybe I was just spoilt by my experience in the previous hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very easy to get everywhere being across the street from the Bahnhof. Walk to Reichstag, Brandenberger Tor, S-bahn and U-bahn. Excellent buffet breakfast for a reasonable price.

"Value for money"
I liked the location of the hotel (i.e. just beside the central train station), the shared kitchen, the free washing machines but not the room size. I only have enough space to walk in the room. I can't complain much since I only paid 75 Euros for the triple room which also included free WiFi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very pleased, absolute perfect location, the only minor negative is that the hotel does not have air conditioning which for Berlin most of the time is not required; however, our stay coincided with foul "tropical weather" (abnormal) and aircon would have been nice.
