  • The station suffers from is still slightly below the architectural intervention of Mehdorn: in the model, the extended departures hall looked really spectacular – but in Berlin it must be above all glad, if a building is even remote gig set. Inside it is relatively generously built, many shops available. What it lacks is age the patina venerable stations in Frankfurt or in Leipzig - but that he has the appeal of modern architecture. And trappings is just much. An area that is rapidly changing.

  • A hochinteressates structure of modern architecture, functional and impressive. Large columns and elbows set the scene. A sensible signs facilitates orientation. Elevators and escalators are functional and have all works over several floors is managed by the flow of traffic, load lines break up the architecture. It is much tread available, so I never had the impression even at high train frequency, run over or "crushed" to be. In the basement of long-distance traffic on the upper floor the S-Bahn. I leave the station through the great Hall at the main entrance, I have direct views of the Regierungsvirtel. For the incoming tourists an interesting picture.

  • At the onset of winter which latter-day remembers you very quickly how this station lacks - heated lounges for waiting passengers. The restaurants were crowded Saturday 17.03.2018 completely. Experiencing rarely crowded and grubby fast-food restaurants. Arrangement of roads opens up quickly from my point of view - we are here no "regulars" and could still easily orientate ourselves. In particular on the tracks, for example in the area of long-distance trains there is no sheltered waiting areas. Up there face freezes in the winter one. Lots of glass, much steel - not repulsive, but also no building to the fall, functioning commercial buildings.

  • Modern rooms with private bathroom, all of them. Spacious rooms of four and eight. Location at walking distance of the center of the city or the central station. Nothing fancy at the breakfast but it covers all the tastes ( coffee isn't good though and the machine fills all your cup, I'm still wondering how adding some milk : an option with latte or cappuccino would be great !) and dinners are correct. I was here with a group of pupils and I'm considering to come back again, with pupils or with my family.
  • We were very satisfied by our stay in A&O Berlin Hauptbahnhof. Good location: near the central railway station and city transport services, quiet area. All-you-can-eat breakfast. Very friendly staff. Excellent price-quality ratio.
  • The place is nice, beds are comfortable and Staffs are friendly. They can speak English also. Best thing - located near the Hauptbahnhof.
  • A good place to spend the night. Its not far from Hbf, Berlin. They have clean toilet, and soap in the bathroom of the dormitory. They charge extra for bedsheet and the quilt. Drinking water costs extra. Food and cocktails are not so good.
  • J ai passé une semaine dans cette auberge de jeunesse. Les serviettes etaient changées chaque jour. L hotel est assez grand et il y a beaucoup de groupe d enfants/adolescents = beaucoup de bruits cependant l hotel dispose d une securité qui fait souvent le tour à chaque etage. Il y a un bar rooftop assez agréable. Le petit dejeuner est complet et copieux contrairement au repas qui n est pas du tout bon. Les employé sont tres chaleureux
