Hotel Berlin-Pankow was chosen because they offered family rooms at very decent prices.
Location is right next to a busy street which cause disturbing noise in most rooms if you are not used to it. Even if it is located in the northern part of Berlin it just takes 20 minutes with Tram and S-bahn to the city centre, and the station was just outside the hotel - perfect. If you come in a small group of max 5 persons you can buy a cheap group ticket for 16 EUR per day. The only rule is that you must travel together since you only have one ticket.
Room was OK but not more. No warmth or cosiness, just your furniture and no more, not a place where you like to spend more time than necessary. One small closet for 4 persons is not enough, you have to live out of your suitcase which is OK for many people. Bathroom was clean and OK, nothing to complain about but not inviting.
Good parking possibilities if you come by car, either locked parking space in the back yard or parking garage was available.
Breakfast was included in price and gave a reasonable variety to choose from, something for everybody. In the evening there was complimentary tea/coffee on self-service or cold beverages at reasonable cost available in the reception area.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Our only problem was that we had specifically asked for (via phone and mail) a room with only real beds and no sofa beds. This was agreed on phone and confirmed via mail but still it did not work. We mentioned this every day to the reception and each time they would find a solution for us but nothing really happened. Price was the same for rooms with sofa-beds but we feel that a confirmation in writing should be a solid agreement. No excuse for the mistake was given to us and no compensation at all.
Still, Berlin-Pankow can be recommended for travelers to Berlin who seek a budget price accommodation and intend to spend more time in the city than in the hotel room.
