Rooms & hotel services
Our twin room was modern and clean with a view on the street. It had a flatscreen television on the wall, coffee/tea maker and a small desk. Airconditioning was working well. The minors: there was no fridge in the room. Internet is expensive: €7 for one hour and €12 for 24 hours. Internet in the lobby is free (but often not available). The breakfast room on the first floor is large, clean and the hot/cold buffet is good. Hotel staff was friendly and efficient; check-inn was fast. Check-out gave some problems. The total price in the hotel was €5 higher than the total on my reservation papers. But the staff member changed this into the price when i booked online.
The hotel is 2 minutes walking from the U-bahn (metro) in the Bismarckstrasse. It’s only two stops to the Berlin Messe (U2). To metro station ‘Adenauerplatz’ in the Kurfurstendamm (with the U7) is also 2 stops but then you are in the first half of the Kurfurstendamm. In this area are luxury stores. The second half of the Kurfurstendamm is more busy with shops, restaurants and cafe’s. Behind the Kurfurstendamm is the shopping street Tauentzienstrasse with the huge KaDeWe department store. Walking from Adenauerplatz to the second half of the Kurfurstendamm is 20 minutes. With the U-bahn from the hotel to metro station ‘Kurfurstendamm’ takes 4 stops with one change of trains.
To Tegel Airport
Tegel Airport has not a train/metro connection. The airport express buses (X9, 109) have a stop close to Leonardo Hotel. Travel time from the hotel to the airport is 10 minutes. Fare about €2.
On the internet, Leonardo Hotel has good customers reviews. We also liked the hotel. Room and breakfast were good and to the metro was just 2 minutes walking. However if we come back again to Berlin we will choose another hotel with a more central location. Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf is not in the centre of the city. We liked the area of Museum Island and Friedrichstrasse Station with it’s small restaurants, cafe’s and terraces. A few popular hotels (each with thousands of reviews) are in Alexanderplatz which is near Museum Island.
