My husband and I stayed at Citylight for one week. The rooms are basic and clean. Ours actually had twin beds pushed together plus there were bunk beds (obviously intended for families with children). There was a TV and hairdryer in the room. Wifi was free but spotty. We both had trouble accessing it on our iPhones; did better with... More

Only stayed one night. The one night was fantastic night. A lot of rules and regulations but it was fine. The staff were so warm and welcoming. Food was delicious also, great beds lovely and comfy. The rooms were so warm especially for a cold night in Berlin! Would definitely stay again!

Hotel was very clean and very accommodating to our large group, wide choice of food for breakfast and was only 10 minutes on the underground to central Berlin. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone while visiting Berlin.

Not many places in the area for drinks, so we were pleased to discover the bar of this hotel. The staff member who ran the reception and the bar was extremely pleasant and helpful. It was a comfy place to sit . Would consider staying here next time, as it is close to the S train at Gesundbrunnen

It is very easy to get the hotel from Tegel airport either by taxi or by public transport. It will cost approximately 20 euros by taxi. The hotel is located a 5 minute walk from Gesundbrunnen train and underground station. There is also a shopping centre next to the train station which includes a supermarket, chemist and clothes shops. It... More

The hotel is very family friendly! We had a room with five people and we're given a room with three single beds & a bunk bed. The furniture was fairly new and the room came equipped with a small fridge also. The breakfast was an expanded continental style and included most of what people would expect from a cold breakfast.... More

I came here on school trip to Berlin and I can't honestly say that I had a pleasant stay here. The food was very poor and wasn't very appetising, a small group of us even ditched the food all together and opted to got to the mall or a local take out instead, all though I do believe in giving...

Other posters have covered most of the main points here but I have a few points I would like to comment on from my stay last year... -food was basic and of variable quality throughout my stay. Staff in the kitchen (and in reception, come to that) are friendly and rapid. Option for school groups to make up packed lunches... More
