The two-star Hotel Greifswald is the sort of establishment we Cheapos adore. Tucked away in a utilitarian courtyard off busy Greifswaldstrasse, the “petite auberge” is popular with musicians, dancers and actors. And we can see why—it’s got a homey atmosphere, primo location, friendly staff and affordable rates, to boot.
Pros: Friendly vibe. Unique décor. Fabulous location. Delicious breakfast.
Cons: No elevator.
The Hotel Greifswald’s 33 guest rooms are all slightly different, but each resembles a cozy bedroom in a friend’s house. Rooms are done up with leather or wicker chairs, carpeted floors, framed prints and curtains in big, bold prints. They are equipped with a TV.
The small, tidy private bathrooms are splashed with blue.
Despite its artsy clientele and hip location (steps away from clubs, bars and concert venues galore), the Hotel Greifswald doesn’t come with an attitude problem. Quite the opposite—thanks to the gregarious owner, Alice van Alphen-Gebauer, and her engaging staff, guests can truly feel “at home” here.
Frau Alphen-Gebauer is particularly proud of her breakfast spread (available for an additional charge). Served in a small room plastered with signed photographs of her artsy guests, the buffet is downright decadent. (Did we hear mention of cake?) And as a gesture to her late-rising guests, the spread is served until noon.
Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that the hotel does not have an elevator.

Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany
About the Hotel Greifswald neighborhood
One of Berlin's funkiest hoods, Prenzlauer Berg sits to the northeast of Mitte. Speckled with cute restaurants, cafés, and funky retail shops, PB's claims to bohemianism predate the post-reunification creep of gentrification. Prenzlauer Berg was a Jewish neighborhood before the rise of the Nazis and a somewhat arty area in the former East Germany. The weekly markets held on Kollwitzplatz and Helmholtzplatz provide additional draws.
