Good haven with good bed and wonderful food at night. The spa is a delight to relax in the evening and swim in the pool. The staff is very friendly. The rooms in the new building are very clean and proper although my preference is to stay in the main building where it feels more like being home.

I stayed here for one night while travelling to Denmark. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area. Although the building is a bit dated and small here and there, the interior is well taken care of. We stayed in one of the newer hotel rooms. Our room was big, with a large bedroom (the beds are great!) and...

This was our second time staying at the Hotel Birke. Our room was in the newer section and had air conditioner. This was the one negative - the A/C didn't work great and it got hotter throughout the night and since we faced the street, it was quite loud when we opened the windows. There is a large and varied...

We stayed at the hotel traveling through Kiel on our way to a road trip in Norway. There were 2 wedding parties going on at the time of our arrival, a parking spot wasn't easy to find and the staff didn't take a real interest in helping us find one.

We came to Kiel on a sentimental journey to see the house my late parents lived in after the war and where the friends they made there became friends for nearly 50 years.
