Situated in a regal mansion, the three-star Hotel-Pension Modena am Kurfürstendamm is a value-packed find steps away from Ku’Damm’s schmanciest block. As long as you aren’t after memorable interior design, you'll appreciate this family-run operation for its clean, spacious rooms and gracious service.
Pros: Ample rooms. Very clean. Friendly service. Excellent value. Tony location.
Cons: Not the most exciting décor. Limited reception hours. May feel a bit removed from the tourist attractions.
The 19 guest rooms at the Hotel-Pension Modena are appointed with the basics: bedside tables, an armoire, table and chairs and a few framed prints. Details vary throughout (we weren’t crazy about the peach bed in one double), but the rooms are uniformly pristine and comfortable, and that won us over. Plus, with high ceilings and strategic layouts, even the single rooms are big enough to host small soirees.
All rooms come equipped with a safe, satellite television and free Wi-Fi. We especially liked the rooms overlooking the pretty courtyard.
All but a few of the cheapest single rooms have private bathrooms. Both shared and private bathrooms are tiled in white and large enough to fit two people at the same time—a rarity in Berlin pensions. Toiletries and a hair dryer are provided.
Situated a floor below the Hotel-Pension Dittberner (another EuroCheapo favorite), the Modena is a simpler and cheaper—but cheerful and practical—option. Its wide hallways boast an array of throw rugs, antique chairs, trunks and other artifacts, and the breakfast room feels modern, with polished hardwood floors and pine furniture.
Breakfast is included in the room rate, and Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that reception is only open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m.—guests are asked to inform the hotel in advance if they plan to arrive outside these hours.
The Pension Modena rubs elbows with some of Berlin’s finest real estate, and boasts close proximity to the most beautiful stretch of Ku’Damm. It should be noted, however, that the closest transit stops (the Adenauerplatz U-bahn and the Savignyplatz S-bahn) are about a half-mile (a 10- to 15-minute walk) away, but a few buses stop nearby.

About the Hotel-Pension Modena am Kurfurstendamm 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.
