Impersonal and impolite

I found the Econtel Berlin by looking through a city guide that I'd bought to try and help get me around the city. On paper it looked like a good choice; reasonably priced, almost central but in a quieter area etc etc. In that respect, I can't complain. However, being new to the city, and the country, the Econtel's staff did not offer the best first impression. The receptionist was impolite and made me and my friends feel as if we were imposing and unwelcome, and on more than one occasion that we went to reception and waited patiently to be "served", older couples were persisitently allowed to queue jump ahead of us, and when we were finally addressed, again, we felt to be encroaching on the staff's time. The room itself was nice, the breakfast was decent and the waiting on staff were much friendlier than the reception staff. Security was a tad questionable however, with us being disturbed in the middle of the night by strangers banging incessantly on our door. Also the luggage storage room downstairs does not lock and is not close to reception, which leaves your belongings at risk of being stolen. I would recommend the Econtel Berlin only if every other hotel in Berlin is totally booked up and you already have your flights booked...
Great place to stay

I have stayed at this hotel on several different occasions and have always enjoyed it. It is in a great location, easy to access the airport, and right on the bus route. The staff is very nice to foreign travellers. Restaurant and bar are both quite nice. I will gladly stay there again in the future.

Top Local Tips for Berlin

Great selection of Local Places Ask a local where they dine. There are great local places as we were made aware of by the innkeeper at Woodridge B&B. Palmettos is excellent for a NICE evening out. Camillia Cafe is a great little place for a relaxed afternoon.

Swamp Tours Well worth taking a Swamp Tour

Country living within driving distance of New Orleans You are only minutes away from New Orleans or the Mississippi Gulf Coast. New Orleans offers wonder attractions such as the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, historical homes, the famous French Quarters with all of its attractions and dining. And the Mississippi Gulf Coast miles of beaches and casinos. By staying at the Woodridge B&B you are right in the central of both places.
