"Location is fine, small but clean room and bathroo"
The locations is perfect, the rooms are very small but very clean. The bathroom was perfect (clean and good size). Maybe the rooms are very small but only for sleeping its ok. The internet didnt work inside my room. I had to get close to get signal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last night in Berlin"
Ok but the TV did not workGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, small rooms."
Just steps from the Hauptbahnhof entrance, so location is ideal. Rooms are very small, but clean. Lobby is often chaotic, seemingly at all hours, but survivable. Front desk staff were very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Meininger Berlin Station - Not for light sleepers"
Location is great if you are coming in and out by train and don't want to carry your bags across town, the hotel is literally attached to the train station. Rooms are basic but comfortable, breakfast area is simple but adequately stocked. Bar is good but a little expensive. Downside with location to train station is when they decide to make service […] announcements over the external speakers at 2am - not for light sleepers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A for location D for facility and service"
We were visiting Berlin during our one night layover, and Air Berlin mistakenly checked thru our baggage so we were making do without our morning amenities. The receptionist was cold and harsh when asked about any amenities like complimentary tooth brush etc. The room was hostel like with bunk beds, and extremely spartan and small. Bathroom was clean […] and operational, but with no hair dryer. The train station nearby is main station, and has excellent range of eateries. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, tiny room"
The location is fantastic - right on top of the Central Station in Berlin. 15 mins walk from the Bundestag, 20-25 mins walk from the Brandenberg gate. This is dream location. But the rooms are tiny, space is uncomfortable, and the top bunks don't leave enough headroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic but cheerful and clean. Great location"
For a family of four, getting a room with two bunk beds wasn't quite what we expected, was expecting a double and a bunk bed. Room was very cramped, but clean and had a nice updated bathroom. Anyway its a good value given the location is very convenient for the main station and city center. The hotel had a fun youthful feel and clientele, and suits […] budget minded travelers - you can cook your own food and do laundry if you want. Good value breakfast available too. You can also join others in the downstairs or rooftop bars and games rooms at night .If you are the sort of traveler who wants to spend every waking hour out doing stuff (and spending your money doing that not on hotels) then this place is great. However if you like to spend time relaxing in luxury in your room you might be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location! amazing location"
great location Wi-Fi was spotty, actually Wi-Fi wasn't great. I think it was sure to the amount of people staying and connected. But hotel is great second time at a meininger hotel first one was Amsterdam which was also great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
everything was fine except for the wifi, which was incredibly slow, really not adequate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible stay, inconfortable."
It was vert bad experiance because the hotel was full with more of 200 students. The lobby was full, the restaurant was always full, elevators. The room was very small without space and the air conditioner did not work properly. In the flirts night I asked for a biger room but IT was deneid.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good hotel and location"
Easy to get around Berlin from the hotel being right next to main train station. Only draw back during my stay was that there were tons of High School kids... Loud and a bit rowdy... But overall good! Good breakfast but get there early if all the HS kids are there!Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK. Staff is nice."
I only chose this hotel because of its location - it's next to the HBF. I booked last minute, so I definitely overpaid, but if you can get a good deal in advance, I suppose it would be worth it. The other hotels in the vicinity were too expensive, and I really only needed a room close to the HBF since I had an early morning train to catch. Overall, […] this hotel was satisfactory. The staff were nice and helpful. The room was okay. I was a little disappointed probably because I paid too much, but it did the job. Unfortunately, it was really hot in Berlin and there was no air conditioning in the rooms, only fans that didn't really work. It was so hot and stuffy I felt like my head was going to explode. I was forced to keep the window open, so unfortunately I didn't get to sleep until around 3am due to the constant noise. I would recommend requesting a room away from the central station.

"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
Response by MEININGER Hotel Berlin Central Station Dear Jeff Thank you for your feedback - MEININGER do have a great variety of guests (families, school groups, backpackers..) - these beds are perfectly suited for this purpose. I understand the situation regarding the noise and I am really sorry for that, usually our nightshift check all floors during the night. All the best, your MEININGER-Team
"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

"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
I booked two twin rooms but hotel reception said I did not book for double occupancy and tried to charge me €372 to include an extra person in each room, I walked outside and booked it for €52 on my phone. This experience left a real bitter taste in my mouthGenuine Hotels.com guest review

""Oh - there are school tour groups here!""
I came as an academic to visit the Museum Insel of Berlin. I chose Meininger Hauptbahnhof because it is close to the railway station and thus easy for me to get form the station to the hotel at the end of a long train trip from Belgium. The hotel served my needs quite well although the staff were very busy with the large school groups that were there […] at the time. I was able to do all I needed in Berlin and the room was clean and comfortable. I found the large groups of school children noisy at times; they did not misbehave but their energy is very noisy and they tend to take over spaces. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very good location"
The location of this hotel was excellent , it is just to the right of the south exit of Berlin Central railway station , we got a flight to Berlin from UK and used the train from the airport to the city centre , so the close proximity to a train station was perfect for my needs because I was also travelling to Rostock by train the next day.

It was not bad and being so close to station and some conveience stores near by that was good inspite I paying more than 100 Euros for a night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, but loud, small rooms"
I wanted to stay a night before my flight, and to be close to the central train station. The central location is the only advantage of this hotel. The room I got was quite small, the bed not that clean, and I could very well hear the trains arriving at the train station outside. I could even hear the announcements of the trains arriving/departuring. […] At the end it was OK, but I would not return to the hotel and would look next time for another one.

"For1st timers it's easy to get to know Berlin from"
A very average hotel, great for young teenagers and 1st timer visitors into Berlin. Branching out into the suburbs is made easy as the Meininger is right at the main train facility with everything revolving and returning to the Hauptbahnhof.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"all was ok"
all was ok for the price we payed, it was the cheapest hotel we could find, the roon and beds worked fine, we had a good stay, parking is not easy, and not free, 10 euro extra pr day and 100 euro deposit for parking note to but into the car, this "detail" did not make me smile, but this is what to expect in a very big city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Firstly It is Near the sightseen bus stop and the central train station which makes it a good location.

"Cheap - Sleep - Leave"
If you just need any type of sleep...just to get through the night, this is just fine. You are paying a lot of $ for that, but then again you are in the centre of Berlin. The room is extra tiny, beds are just okay if you exclude the pillow. Pillows are more like a massive bag of soft wool that cant do its job! Bathroom is not great with water going […] everywhere. I would look else were for a better option. I will not comment on the staff as they just did not impress me. Lifts take hours to get you to the room - we walked to the 6th floor several times!!

Just an ordinary hotel very popular with youth travellers due to its convenient location right next to main train station. This hotel is okay for just a few days stay but nothing special about it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Friendly staff at reception around the clock. Decent sized room and bathroom, and great to have a communal kitchen area downstairs for guest use. We were out most of the day, and it was very easy to walk or access transport to where we wanted to go from this hotel. It was nice to have a few drinks in the bar when we returned at night. This is the best […] location if you need to get a long distance train to somewhere else at the end of your stay, as the station is just across the road, the hotel will store your luggage if needed, or you can just check out and hang out at the bar/cafe if you prefer.

"This is a hostel, not a 3 star hotel"
Expedia sold me this as a 3 star hotel but turned out to be a hostel. Rooms are tiny, there is no air-conditioning, beds are very small and uncomfortable, and have no chairs or tables (except for some tiny stools). Perhaps this is OK for a hostel, but unacceptable for a 3 star hotel. The allegedly is a WiFi in the hotel, but if you are lucky you may […] get your pages downloaded at the rate of 3 pages per hour (that is IF you are lucky). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
