Travel || Hampton by Hilton Hotel in Berlin

inside room

Berlin is a huge city and I always find that it actually makes it a bit trickier to pick out city-break accommodation. There’s just too much choice and you don’t know how good or great value a hotel or Airbnb might actually be.  

On my most recent trip to Berlin, I had the pleasure of staying at the Hampton by Hilton Hotel. The hotel was super conveniently located near Alexanderplatz. You really couldn’t hope for a better situated hotel. I’ve stayed in Berlin before, in another lovely hotel, but I preferred the location of the Hampton by Hilton. It made it really easy to come straight into the city centre from the airport, dump my things off easily in my room and then set out to explore the city. (The metro station is a maximum 5 minute walk from the hotel). The hotel isn’t located directly in Alexanderplatz, it’s just off it in one of the side streets which is actually really nice because it makes the rooms a lot quieter and more restful. 

I haven’t stayed in a Hilton hotel in many years so I went into the experience expecting a slightly more upscale version of something like the Travelodge. (Which I also love – I’m definitely not knocking budget-friendly hotels.) But the Hampton by Hilton definitely exceeded my expectations. 

The room was cosy with a giant bed and also a giant TV. I was hoping for a city view but instead my room faced a nearby massive building. Luckily that building was Wes Anderson pink so I enjoyed it nonetheless. As per usual on city breaks, I didn’t spend much time in my room but after coming back from the Chamaeleon Theatre, I definitely stretched out in bed and watched some German telly. 

Maybe it’s just me, but I love watching local tv channels when I travel. I have really found memories of watching Turkish TV on holiday with Sam in 2013. 

Breakfast the next morning was insane. There were just so many options! Breakfast is complimentary and as it’s buffet style you could eat up enough to fill you up for the entire day. It was a pity that I didn’t have Sam with me as he loves a good breakfast buffet. They had a vegan butter spread which made me happy and even a waffle press so that guests could make their own waffles.

There’s a fitness centre in the hotel (which I absolutely did not use so I can’t vouch for it’s quality). There’s no dinner service at the hotel, but there are 24/7 snacks and drinks at the bar. All the staff that I encountered were incredibly friendly and helpful, even giving me some exploring tips the next morning. 

The Hampton by Hilton in Berlin city centre is located at Otto-Braun-Strasse 69, 10178, Berlin, Germany. Prices seem to start around €99

  • I’m like you, expected a slightly better than Travelodge quality because of the reputation Hilton has in Europe, but find them to be really nice?

  • I’m not going to lie, Travelodge is what have made most of my trips possible so I’m most definitely not going to be criticizing it any time soon, but it’s true that this hotel looks a little more “chic” if I may say so. I really like the buffet :’)

    • I love it too – the majority of hotels I stay in are like Travelodge and Premier Inn so I’m all about the budget friendly options, but it’s nice to stay somewhere more up-market occasionally! x
