Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
Landshuter Str 1 , Berlin, 10779
Hotel de Ela is a family-run hotel located right in the heart of Berlin, only 800 metres away from the largest department store in Europe – KaDeWe. All Berlin’s major tourist attractions are within easy walking distance, i.e. most popular Kurfurstendamm shopping street and Gedachtniskirche are only 4 minute-ride away. In fact, a 5-star Ramada hotel is located near Hotel de Ela – so you are guaranteed a quiet & top location!

Tube/U-Bahn station is very close to the hotel, only 3-minute-walk away (250 metres). From there you can reach any part of Berlin within minutes, i.e. Zoologischer Garten, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie, Messe, ICC, Bradenburger Tor and other.
Hotel de Ela has excellent transport links – train, tube, buses, trams, bicycle routes and taxis can be reached in seconds. The truth is, you do not really need any of these as everything is within easy walking distance anyway! By the way, you can park free of charge next to the hotel.

Hotel de Ela is a 2-star hotel housed in a classic 19th century Berlin building. It offers a mixture of modern & classic extra-large spacious en-suite rooms (up to 42 sq.m.); extra-high ceilings (4.5-metres); huge windows and a lot of space. Rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, satellite TVs, heating, snow-white bedding, quality mattresses, carpets, lamps, desks, furnishings and en-suite bathrooms. Best of all, you room is cleaned daily!

It includes freshly-baked bread rolls, freshly-made coffee, orange juice, selection of fresh fruits (bananas, apples, pears etc), a variety of different sorts of tee, a selection of cheese and ham, toasts, yoghurts, hot and cold drinks, marmalade, honey and butter.

basic comfortable clean accommodation
This place is not as luxurious as the photos make it out to be, however, the staff were friendly and helpful and the room, albeit basic, was very clean and comfortable. Very pleasant and quiet area and close to several metro stations. Excellent Italian restaurant opposite too!

Berlin.
The hotel is as it says.....central, between 2 Ubahn stations, a 10 minute walk from Ka De We and the Kurfurstendamm.
The bathroom IS private and yours, but it is not ensuite or even next door but along the corridor which can be inconvenient if say you need the toilet in the night. This is not the fault of the hotel...it is an old house converted and that's just where the rooms ARE.
I was disappointed to find there was no means of making coffee or tea in the rooms which in my view should be a given. Tea will be brought to your room if you ask.....at €2 a cup.
The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and will print things off if you need them to (for a fee) such as boarding passes, emails etc.
It was an enjoyable stay and was central enough to allow us to see Berlin easily.

3 star hotel - I don't think so!
Difficult to explain the Hotel De Ela has it really is not what any traveller would call a Hotel in the traditional sense of the word. When we were dropped off by the taxi it took a couple of minutes to realise that the big brown door with a string of business door buzzers in front of us was actually our hotel entrance!!!!! - Not a good start!! Whist the 2 staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the accommodation was very clean there is no way it is a 3 star Hotel. The entrance is on the 1st floor of a shared accommodation block, therefore the entrance/stairs are shared with other businesses such has a local dentist - the door opposite is actually boarded up. Rooms are dated and there are no facilities such as tea and coffee, iron etc. All such items are available at reception at a cost eg: 9eur to hire an iron. Breakfast is 7Eur per person - the breakfast room being up another flight of stairs. WI-Fi and hairdryers are free. The view from our room looked over the rear of the building to the bin area. Value for money does not come with this accommodation if you are expecting to stay in a regular type hotel. However if all your looking for a somewhere to sleep thats clean and friendly with no frills at all then its ok.

Angebotsfang
Das eingestellte Angebot im LateRooms entpuppt sich als Buchungsfalle. Stornierung nur 6 Tage vor Anreise. Die Kreditkarte wird schon abgefragt bevor man anreist. Die Zimmerausstattung wird in engl. Sprache angegeben. Damit übersieht man schnell, dass man ein Zimmer ohne eigenes Bad hat und sich dies mit fremden Personen auf dem Flur teilen muss. Die Umbuchung wurde zwar akzeptiert aber eine generelle Stornierung war wie gesagt online und telefonisch nicht möglich. Die sehr selbstbewusste Dame machte das sehr eindringlich deutlich. Der Check In geht im militärischen Stil über die "Lucke" (Rezeption) Nun einige Fakten: Ja 4,50 m Raumhöhe - Ja harte Betten - Ja desolates Bad mit sehr lauten Zerkleinerer, der auch mal völlig allein ansprang und einen die Nachtruhe nimmt. Ja knarrenden Dielen. Ja Heizung mit tosendem Eigengeräusch mit der Option laut und warm (nach fast zwei Tagen) oder leise und kalt. Der TV kommt auch schon aus einer anderen Zeit. Für uns war es eine bittere Lehre. Und nur wegen den nicht Stornierbarkeit in Anspruch genommen. Wir besuchen dieses Haus nicht mehr. Aber das muss ja nicht für jeden gelten. Absolutes Highlight der nostalgische Aufzug aus dem Jahr 1903. Eine Sache die man gesehen und benutzt haben muss. Ein kleiner Ausgleich für nur. Aber buchen Sie selbst.
