Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room was neet and clean but was very small . The only good thing is the location of the hotel next to the station. Room was not big enough to walk around comfortably. Breakfast was good with a vast majority of vegan choices. Heating was aslo good

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed in the Meininger between Christmas and New Year. We had stayed in a Meininger in Brussels before a few years back and were happy with that so we decided to book again. This time we were in a private twin room - it was quite small for two people, but it was okay. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, so it suited us fine. The room was well presented and the bin was emptied daily. There was no cleaning of the room though, beyond the bin being emptied. The location is ideal - just a 1 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof and all of the shops, cafés and transport links you get there. The bar downstairs is open fairly late and you can sit downstairs with your own food and drinks. The price was reasonable, given its location and if you're happy for a sort of hybrid between a hostel and a hotel then I would definitely recommend it.

Response from MEININGER Hauptbahnhof, Guest Services / Front Office at MEININGER Hotel Berlin Hauptbahnhof
Responded 4 Mar 2023
Dear Peter, Thank you for your detailed review. We are very happy top hear that you like the concept of our company. As our houses are located in very central locations to provide the best possible experience. Since a few months we do follow a go green concept, as a part of it we do the cleaning during the stay only on request. That means that a cleaning is still possible during your stay but will not be provided automatically anymore. This way we try to safe water and detergent to do something good for our environment. We are very sorry if this wasn't communicated properly, but we hope you still had a great time in Berlin. Kind regards your MEININGER team

It was really disgusting to be here, there were brown stains on the sheets, the shower hadn't been cleaned, there was hair in the beds and, not least, all the dust and dirt had been swept into a corner of the room. Everything feels dirty. Little help or understanding from the staff. I'm already looking forward to going home.

Ok so firstly, it’s bunk beds, which I didn’t realise but I should’ve looked more into it before booking. Beds are comfy enough. Travelled with my family and the location is good right next to Berlin HBF which is the central station, 15 min walk to reichstag, brandenburg gate, a bit further for checkpoint Charlie, topography of terror and alexanderplatz. 5 stars due to the service, Paul was absolutely superb and really looked after me and my family. Sometimes seen him at the bar, on his own just working away serving drink after drink never a moan. Every time I asked him for something he went out his way to help, a credit to the hotel. Bar very cosy and drinks reasonably priced.

Totally unpleasant experience due to staff at the reception . They didn't care at all about the customers , not willing to understand or help , lying and totally careless. It was a total mess on the floor they give us a room we ask for a room change after couple of lies and when it was obvious that nothing works, electricity, ventilating fans and we ask for the manager the change was possible but they keep with our luggage on the hotel corridors for one hour before giving the new room. They give us room cartels that didn't work, we have to go up and down to the reception seven times and the receptionist doesn't care , they want to move us in a room that wasn't cleaned ... a total mess . Not recommended at all , at least this place.

Nice hotel to stay in as a group and visit all that Berlin has to offer. The lobby was stylish and the stairs were an opportunity for interaction. However, the food provided for the group (which was different than the restaurant) was quite bland and lacked vegetarian/non-meat options (basically it was salad or nothing). The staff was not very welcoming probably because of the size of our group. The rooms were small but well-furnished and the hotel is in the center of the city. Overall, a great experience for the price.

Worst experience i've ever had. Booked a 4 bed room all in one booking for me and 2 friends, and when we arrived for check in, they split us all up. Please don't go here expecting that you'll be with your friends, we are three young girls and they thought it was acceptable to place us all in separate rooms. Staff were extremely rude and not helpful. We ended up cancelling the booking and they charged us a "no-show" fee, which is unjustified, as we did show up, we just had to r leave as the service we paid for wasn't provided for us on arrival

The location of this hotel cannot be beat. You step out of the train station, and it’s RIGHT there. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm. The room was quite small for 4 people. The bunks are very solid and the bed is very comfortable, though they do not have privacy curtains. The main floor of the building has a large restaurant and a guest kitchen, so there really isn’t a lounge area per se. Overall, the hotel itself is very modern and clean and I really liked it. BUT the biggest downfall is that there is no AC and it is absolutely stifling throughout the entire building, and even worse in the rooms. The rooms do have fans, but the one in my room didn’t even turn on, all it did was click loudly. The windows only open a couple inches so there is zero air flow. It made the whole place very uncomfortable and sleeping near impossible. It is for this reason that I likely will not stay again, unfortunately.

Stayed In this hostel as part of a University trip to Berlin. The hostel staff were very friendly, both on reception and the bar. Ordered a tequila sunrise from the bar and did not realise how strong it would be (measures for spirits in the UK are different to Germany), the man at the bar gave me nearly a whole bottle of orange juice to put in my drink because I found it so strong haha, we had a laugh about it and they was happy enough to make my drink taste not so strong. We mostly used this hostel as a base, as we travelled around a lot collecting data for our uni assessment, but the beds were surprisingly comfortable, and the shower had a decent water pressure, (most hotels/hostels in the UK the water just dribbles out the shower). The room was also very clean, and cleaners came in every day to clear the bins and provide new toilet rolls etc. Only issue I found with the room is that it was so so hot. They have fans in the bedroom but it only makes the room 2°c colder than what it is outside, however I kept the window open all night, left the curtains open and just shut the blinds which are on the outside of the windows, this seemed to cool the room better than the fan. The hostel is quite central, to get to the main sites it’s about 10-15min walk. There is the main train station opposite the hostel, and behind there, there is a bus station so if you need to get anywhere there’s plenty of options. A couple recommendations: 1) A 15 min walk can lead you to Murphys bar, right next to the river. It was an absolute beautiful location. It’s an Irish bar and everyone is very friendly. 2) We went on a free walking tour of Berlin, cant remember our tour guides name but she was brilliant, if you’re looking for a tour of Berlin which shows you all the sites and want to learn about the history of each place, definitely go in a tour with them. The tour was 3.5 hours and it’s the most interest 3.5 hours of my entire trip to Berlin. Was so informative and helpful.
