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!

    This location can't be beat as you are a 15 min walk away from mostly everything and literally next to the metro station. The rooms were exactly as seen in pictures and the beds were comfy. I would definitely stay again!

    Very clean hostel and very helpful staff. The 24 hour reception was very useful and the staff were able to provide things like towels and locks (for lockers) if you didn't bring these!

    Good overall experience. It was hot during our stay and the room got very warm, but other than that the room was fine. Outside patio area was nice. Staff are welcoming and friendly.

    This is basically a hotel - if you want the hostel experience don’t stay in this location as there is no shared space except the lobby, no kitchen and no washing machine. However the location is ideal, there are frequent trams from directly outside and the Oranienburger S Bahn stop is also just a minute away. Rooms can also get very hot at night and the lockers are small, if you have big bags they won’t fit in there.

    Very good location however rooms were too hot so had to have both windows open all night and then was woke up several times during the night with noise from the street. Very clean hostel and staff were very helpful.

    Very Good

    15 Sep 2019
    Not bad but could be better... All big dorms go to a noisy street including a tram station where drunk people are shouting around at night; no way you can sleep with window closed. Beds don't have a slatted frame u der the matress but just a hard wooden board, bot quite comfortable. No sideboard to place phone, glasses, watch etc and just an excuse of a reading lamp. No kitchen (though you can use their fridge if you ask nicely) and just the not too luxurious lobby to hang out at.

    Was a great location! The facilites was okey but it was very clean. The staff was various, some were super nice and I felt some of them hated their job.... So some good and some bad. Overall very good but the rooms was so WARM!!!!!! I coludn't sleep at all or just some hours. You coudn't open the windows all open and that made that the rooms got super warm. It was way warmer in the room than outside and in summer that's very bad. Also the reason why I am not comming back :(
