Property Description

Welcome to MEININGER Hotel Berlin Mitte Humbolthaus

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!

    Good hotel-style hostel in the heart of Berlin, right beside the S-bahn. Very clean hostel, good linen and warm rooms. As it's hotel-style, there's no kitchen to make food in. Breakfast buffet costs extra, but the selection is decent. Staff are decent and professional.

    The place is clean and modern. The locality of the hotel is good, and there are a lot of different cozy places around like coffee shops, restaurants and art exhibitions. I didn't find a place in the hotel, where I can get some drinks and meet other travellers.

    Well designed hostel, clean, good facilities. Felt a bit expensive for a dorm room compared to other European cities, but that might be just Berlin. Not much of a communal atmosphere, but in a very traveller and youth friendly area.

    I only stayed here because the hostel I was originally staying at was not available during the weekend. The difference between these two hostels is like night and day. Stay here only if you desperately need a place to sleep. The room itself was old and basic. The bathroom had this strange sewage smell. Everything was moderately clean, so that’s a plus. The biggest negative is that our room was in front of a Biergarten. It was so incredibly loud! Drunk people were screaming the entire night.

    Had to switch rooms after my first night because dorms weren’t available when I arrived. When I book a place, I kind of expect to have a room for the entirety of my stay. The wifi was awful, there’s no laundry service (which they do state), the in room lockers don’t stay locked, their luggage storage is just a room and no lockers. Also, my first 2 nights there, I witnessed 3 separate groups of high school aged kids checking in, probably on a school trip. Can’t recommend this “hostel”.
