“Pleasant stay and good value but a bit too far from the centre”
Reviewed 3 November 2010

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

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.

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The staff was nice. The main problem with the rooms were the beds that weren't very comforetable.
The way we see it, the main problem with the hotel was the location that while it is close to busses and subway station, at nights, when the frequency of those goes down, it becomes a husstle to leave the hotel and go out.

Reviewed 25 February 2010

We needed two rooms, and booked the hotel due to the very low fees proposed. The first reviews were OK. After the booking we read very discouraging reviews that made us doubt our decision. We were glad we took the chance. The hotel is old, yes, but clean. The windows were new, insulating well from the cold and the little traffic from the street. At least two floors and the breakfast area were smoke-free. The breakfasts were OK and abundant. Personnel were helpful.
No need to worry. Very good value for money here. Comparing it to a 3-star hotel from London, this is FAR better.
Tips to walk less: To get here from the airport, get off at U-bahn Adenauerplatz and take the bus 110 towards U-Oskar-Helene-Heim one bus stop to Hochmeisterplatz.

The hotel was an amazing offer via internet and really I couldn't wait to be so good. Nice, quite hotel, in a really convinient area, close to metro station and railway. It's not to the city centre but close enough.
I was a little afraid the night but at last the area were safe enough. Kurfustendam is really close and it's easy to reach city centre.
We didn't taste the breakfast as we stayed one night and leave really early but it's highly recommended.

Reviewed 15 November 2009

The hotel is located on a quiet street, less than a kilometer away from Kudamm, where the nearest U-bahn stop is. However, there are only a few steps to the bus stop, and the bus takes you to the center. At this point of Kudamm, there are a couple of nice, decent priced restaurants but the action is nearer the center.

The breakfast buffet was delicious and filled our stomaches till dinner. Tea, coffee, cocoa, different kinds of bread, toppings, cheese, juice, yoghurt, cereals, fruit etc.

The room was clean and otherwise very nice, too. There was enough room for luggage. The toilet seat broke down, but it was fixed on the same day. However, not properly. The toilet didn't flush because the plastic flushing button was broken, but we were able to flush the toilet while the cover on the toilet seat was taken off. A minor thing but a bit irritating.

There was a computer with internet in the lobby, however it didn't work and wasn't fixed during our stay.
