“Agon Franke”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

Hotel in an easy walking distance from nearest u-bahn - needed a walk after a hearty breakfast. We were given a room on the 6th floor and upon opening the door we were knocked back by the smell of cigarettes, even with the window open it was unbearable. The lady on reception (who was smoking in the office) came out and gave us a new room on the 2nd floor without hesitation which was a much brighter, tidier room.
There is a traditional German bar/restuarant on the corner on the way to the U-bahn called Xantener Eck, we had 2 delicious meals in there and sampled differant German beers, well worth a visit. All in all we had a nice time, the breakfast was well organised and plentiful even when we got there half an hour before serving times ended every morning.

Room Tip: The rooms on the lower floors seem to be better decorated and smoke free!

Our first visit to Berlin, and the Franke was easy to reach on the 110 bus from Tegel airport.
Clean and comfortable with a good shower, we were also pleased to have a free safe in the room. Staff friendly and helpful. We too recommend the buffet breakfast as good value for 8 euros. Only downside was some street noise on Saturday night.
Easy to find public transport, U-bahn and buses, at Adenauerplatz a few minutes walk away.Get a Berlin Welcome Card if you plan to stay a few days, for travel and discounts.
Nearby Xantener Eck bar and restaurant serves great German food.

Room Tip: Request non-smoking

This is a simple hotel with a good location. The U-Bahn (underground) station Adenauer Platz is only a 5-minute-walk away. There is a Lidl and a Netto (cheap supermerkets) plus a beakery in a 5-minute-walking distance.
The breakfast buffet is really good, lots of different kind of breads, sausages, cheese etc.
You can reach the city center (Mitte) by the U-Bahn in about 40 minutes.
The rooms are clean and well furnished and the service is excellent.

The Hotel Agon Franke in Berlin is a wonderful hotel for its star rating and price range. The location is perfect with only a 10 minute walk from Charlottenburg S-Bahn station and it is located in a quiet part of the city just off the shopping street of Kurfurstendamm.

The staff were welcoming and there is 24 hour service on the reception desk and a safe in the room. The rooms are fairly basic but were very clean and are cleaned everyday.

This hotel is in a quiet leafy side-street just 5 mins walk from the Ku'damm and Adenaeurplatz U-Bahn. The hotel itself could do with some updating but it was a pleasant stay and a reasonable rate. They provided a good buffet breakfast with a lot of choice. The luggage room is on the top (6th) floor and we were on the 3rd floor and sometimes had to wait a while for the lift. There are direct buses from just outside the hotel to Bahnhof-Zoo and other bus lines from Adenauerplatz, but unfortunately travelling to the centre (Mitte) either by bus or U-Bahn requires a change making it a bit long-winded sometimes. A direct route would have been more convenient.

Unlike many of the reviews we found the Agon Franke hotel to be just right for our needs. It was close to the main thoroughfare and convenient for buses and trains.

Staff were courteous and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. The room was reasonably small but quite adequate and the bathroom appeared to be brand new.

It was a pity there was no lounge but this is expected when paying this price for a hotel. no complaints at all

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2010

This hotel is situated a mere five minutes from Adenauerplatz underground station, from where all parts of this great City are easily accessible. The hotel is clean, rooms are adequately furnished and towels and bedlinen regularly changed. Breakfast is excellent, and the staff accommodating, especially as we required an earlier breakfast then normal on our last day.
Kurfurstandamm is a stroll away and offers plenty of places to eat; I recommend the Turkish Restaurant, "Tugra', which serves delicious, reasonably priced food in tasteful surroundings. Francucci's serves very good pizzas but beware the hidden 25% cover charge!!
I would recommend this hotel, and this location to anyone on a modest budget.
