Brigitte, the proprietor of Pension Knesebeck, is one of the most eager and friendly hoteliers we met on our Berlin trip. Her eagerness is easy to understand: The Knesebeck is authentically charming. Its long communal breakfast table tells the story best—this is a place where guests mingle and chat over breakfast (and Brigitte is particularly proud of her generous buffet breakfast offerings).
Pros: Quaint and cozy. Super friendly. Great location.
Cons: Décor can feel a bit boring. No TV in rooms.
The Pension Knesebeck's 11 guest rooms are on the spacious side. We especially liked the turquoise walls and mirrored armoire. On the more humdrum side, we didn't love the uninspired carpeting quite so much. Rooms are not uniform but maintain a spunky budget aesthetic throughout.
Each room features a bed, closet, dresser, table and wash basin. There are no amenities to speak of in the rooms, but some offer a balcony.
Some rooms have a private shower (with shared toilets), while others share all facilities. The free-standing shower units were somewhat uninspiring, but the bathrooms are quite clean.
The pension's overall value and undeniable friendliness compensate for any unfortunate design details, and easy access to Ku'Damm doesn't hurt, either.
There is a television in the breakfast room, and breakfast is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and pets are allowed.

About the Pension Knesebeck neighborhood
North of the Ku'Damm is the leafy, upper middle class hood of Charlottenburg. Residential and rich, Charlottenburg is full of relaxed little cafes. We love Charlottenburg for its friendly side streets, in particular those diagonal streets that host little mini-parks. We also like Charlottenburg's affordable little pensions and hotels, which are more prevalent than the neighborhood's well-heeled profile would suggest. While Charlottenburg is not as vibrant and exciting as the dynamic hoods to the east, it's reliable and safe, and at turns quite welcoming.
