Property Description

The hotel is located in a historical spot: this is where the natural scientist Alexander von Humboldt lived until his death. The vibrant neighbourhood around Oranienburger Strasse, with the Postfuhramt, the Hackesche Hoefe, the Tacheles art gallery and many other points of interest, is well-known for its multitude of cafes, galleries, restaurants, bars, clubs and shops. This is where Berlins heart beats and invites you to stroll, browse and party. Whether you are looking at a retrospective exhibition at the C/O Berlin, enjoying the last rays of sun in the Monbijoupark, wandering across the Museums Island or shopping in one of the countless stores, the lively neighbourhood captures you with its charm.

If it gets too boring around Oranienburger Strasse which we honestly cannot imagine - you can quickly escape to anywhere you like thanks to the hotels great location: catch the M1 and M12 trams as well as the S1 and S2 urban trains right in front of the MEININGER Humboldthaus and reach almost any place in town in the shortest of times: for example the upmarket shopping paradise Friedrichstrasse with Gendarmenmarkt and Checkpoint Charly in one minute, Brandenburger Tor and the Reichstag in three and Potsdamer Platz in five minutes.

Its location surely makes the MEININGER Berlin Mitte special: the natural scientist, explorer, volcanologist, oceanographer and astronomer lived his last eleven years in the exact same spot where the MEININGER Humboldthaus is found today. Our hotel preserves the spirit of the universal genius and transports it to our times, integrating the creative energy of the neighbourhood: all of our 118 rooms are individually designed by DaWanda artists; each of them is unique. Each floor has a theme based on one of Humboldts fields of work: nature, freedom, truth. There are references to his numerous expeditions and discoveries all over the house; comic strips about Humboldt drawn by Cuban artists were printed on wallpaper for the public areas.

There is free WiFi in the lobby and the public zones. It is up to you whether you want to put your feet up in the lounge, do your washing or meet your new friends for a chat in the courtyard. Drinks are available at the hotel bar, as are sandwiches, muffins, cookies and other snacks.

Our guests sleep in single, double, multi-bed or dorm rooms. Bed linen is included. All rooms have an ensuite bathroom with a shower and toilet as well as a television. On the fifth floor you can find the MEININGER Humboldthaus gallery rooms over two storeys: the beds are upstairs, the sofa, the writing desk and the bathroom are downstairs and the view of Berlin comes for free.
Our young, multilingual team is available for you 24 hours a day. We look forward to meeting you at the Humboldthaus MEININGER in Berlin Mitte!

    Had a great stay for one night. The staff was helpful & amazing. A walking distance to everywhere I planned to go. Good breakfast although a bit expensive. Nice interior, v clean. The bathroom and the shower were seperate in the dorm which was great. The lockers in the dorm room didn't have locks I believe, but the atmosphere was great and the other ppl were friendly so I wasn't afraid to leave my luggage next to my bed and so did everyone else. Would stay again at Meininger when in Berlin.

    The hostel is really great, everything is clean and comfortable. It’s located very near to the Alexanderplatz, Brandenburger Tor and basically all of the famous monuments, it has also it’s own metro station just outside. The only thing I didn’t like was paying €7 for an “all you can it buffet” but the only thing they had was bread and cheese (this is of course optional... and I got back my money eating like 5 sandwiches... that was fun)

    The hostel is located close to the Reichstag so is a good location, the rooms are clean and the price is affordable, the only thing I miss was a chicken to warm your own food.

    overall, a good hostel, not so good for solo travellers and better for groups but still a lovely place, staff were very friendly and the location is PERFECT, it is 20 min walk away from all main tourist hot spots, right in the centre of everything, and all public transport is directly outside the hotel and amazing food everywhere, would definitely stay here again just for the location.
