Bottom Line

The 123-room Holiday Inn Berlin - City East Side is an upper-mid-range hotel located a bit farther from the city center than most other hotels and away from popular tourist attractions. Rooms are quiet and particularly stylish with an attention to artistic accents along with flat-screen TVs and electric kettles. This property has much more personality than other hotels in the chain, from the rooms to the stylish bar that serves snacks and drinks. There is a free continental breakfast served in a bright dining area and Wi-Fi is free too. Younger guests looking for an affordable accommodation in a more central location may want to check out a hostel like Generator Berlin Mitte or ONE80 Hostels Berlin.

Scene

Modern chain hotel with vibrant design

The open lobby of Holiday Inn Berlin - City East Side is bright and trendy and common areas are designed to overlap. Lime green light shades hang over the sleek, white front desk, and tall, funky bookshelves holding knick knacks separate lounging nooks with retro-inspired chairs on patterned carpeting. The breakfast room is spacious and bright, and guests can enjoy their continental breakfast near the big windows with colorful window shades as they watch the street life go by. Clusters of globe lights in different colors hang from the ceiling, and walls are painted boldly in orange and black. At the bar, guests can order a Starbucks coffee or a cocktail with a steak. Overall the atmosphere is surprisingly stylish for the chain, and manages to be both polished and artistic. 

Location

Outside of the city, away from most popular tourist attractions

Holiday Inn Berlin - City East Side is a bit far from most popular tourist attractions, but there is a tram and bus stop within a short walk. It’s a 40-minute ride to the Berlin Wall Memorial on public transportation, and Alexanderplatz, a public square rich in history with upscale shopping and a transportation hub, can be reached in 30 minutes via public transportation. Berlin Tegel Airport is around a 35-minute drive.

Rooms

Quiet, clean rooms with chic decor and attention to accents that add lots of character

Rooms at the Holiday Inn Berlin - City East Side are modern with creative lighting including work lamps attached to bulletin boards and hanging lights with decorative drum shades. Long, attractive pictures over the beds and patterned carpets add character while bed runners and curtains in green and blue give the space some color. Cute corner cut-outs hold electric kettles and charming mint green coffee cups, and all rooms have flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms are small, but modern with stand-up showers, some with a revealing glass wall covered in a bubble mural that looks out into the sleeping area. Rooms are fresh and creative compared to what guests might expect from the chain.
