With its warm color scheme and neoclassical-inspired artwork, the City Hotel Ansbach brings a touch of sunny Greece to its Charlottenburg corner. The no-frills three-star property may feel a tad dated, but it’s a convenient choice for budget hunters who don’t pale at the prospect of bunking with a tour group.
Pros: Nice, central location. Friendly staff. Clean.
Cons: Small rooms. Slow elevator. A bit rundown. Wi-Fi doesn’t work well.
The City Hotel Ansbach’s 60 guest rooms are small, plain, and clean. Each offers a large closet, telephone and mounted television. Most have a table and chairs or desk as well.
Light sleepers should take note that rooms facing the street can be noisy, even when the windows are closed. In contrast, rooms overlooking a courtyard are peaceful.
Rooms at the City Hotel Ansbach come with shared or private bathrooms. Since the shared bathrooms are well-maintained, downgrading to a bargain room (without private shower or toilet) doesn’t sacrifice all that much comfort.
This is something of a plain-jane hotel, but it’s affordable and well located for the unfussy traveler in need of a place to sleep. The bright yellow, window-lined breakfast room is a cheery place to start the morning over an organic breakfast buffet (included in the room rate).
Wi-Fi is free throughout, although guests complain that the signal is weak. Also worth noting: The hotel has a designated smoking area, but some guests complain that rooms have a residual cigarette smell.
The hotel is only one block away from the mega Kaufhof des Westens department store and Wittenbergplatz’s transport links.

About the City-Hotel Ansbach am Kurfürstendamm neighborhood
The Kufürstendamm, or Ku'Damm, is Berlin's major shopping boulevard, the commercial heart of the former West Berlin. It features the utterly massive KaDeWe department store and about three million other retail experiences. Ok, we exaggerate, but not by much. For our purposes here, we claim hotels within a block or two of the Ku'Damm as "near." To the north is Charlottenburg and to the south is Wilmersdorf.
