The three-star Gold Hotel shines with 35 good, clean rooms just south of Frankfurter Allee. Although it may be a hard to find at first, its comfortable rooms make up for being a bit off the main road.
Pros: Clean and cheap. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Great location.
Cons: Can be a bit hard to find. Street noise. Some areas may smell of cigarettes.
Guest rooms at the Gold Hotel look out either onto Weserstrasse or onto the hotel's quiet back garden. (We recommend requesting a room facing the garden to avoid the noisy taxi stand on Weserstrasse).
Rooms are furnished with some '80s touches (hello padded floral headboards!), but overall struck us as clean and pretty (in a flashback kind of way). Big, bright windows keep things bright, and each room is equipped with a TV and phone.
The small private bathrooms are tiled, modern and clean.
The Gold Hotel is a classy old place, featuring charming touches such as arched hallways and art-nouveau windows on the ground floor. It can definitely have a dated feel, but all is comfortable and clean, and the service is incredibly friendly. The courtyard is a pleasant area to relax after a long day of sightseeing.
Breakfast is included in the room rate, and Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that the hotel is not entirely non-smoking, so some areas (including the lobby and hallways) may have a residual smell.

Friedrichshain, Berlin, Germany
About the Gold Hotel neighborhood
South of Prenzlauer Berg, Friedrichshain is young and edgy, with a good art scene. While Friedrichshain is not as densely hipstery as Prenzlauer Berg, it has a distinctly bohemian vibe. The neighborhood's culture is thrown into relief by the neighborhood's stark Soviet-reminiscent architecture. A Sunday flea market at Boxhagener Platz only reinforces the hood's hipster credentials. Friedrichshain is bisected by the mammoth Karl-Marx-Allee.
