EuroCheapo has been recommending the Pension Kreuzberg since it was frumpy, eclectic and super cheap. These days, it sports color-coordinated interiors and slightly higher rates, but it’s still a solid deal. Set on two floors of a 19th-century apartment building, within walking distance to the Mehringdamm U-bahn station, the lodging continues to provide the basics: low-key service, limited amenities and clean, quiet rooms.
Pros: Clean and comfortable. Good value. Helpful staff.
Cons: No elevator. Basic (no amenities).
The Pension Kreuzberg’s bright, white-washed doubles, triples and quads are spacious enough to hold a closet, two wicker chairs and two side tables. Rooms have some old-fashioned touches, such as large windows and big double doors. A paper lantern, small striped throw rugs and framed prints add color to the otherwise plain spaces.
Expect a restful night's sleep, as rooms overlook either the tree-filled central courtyard or a quiet side street (and there are no distractions like TV in the rooms).
The white-tiled private bathrooms are tiny but functional.
The Pension Kreuzberg is a true German slice of life: spic-and-span and no-nonsense, but with a healthy dose of charm and friendly service. Our favorite aspect of the property is its adorable breakfast nook. Even on cold and rainy days, the yellow walls exude warmth.
Breakfast is included in the room rate, and Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that the Pension Kreuzberg has steep stairs and no elevator.

About the Pension Kreuzberg neighborhood
Funky Kreuzberg is split between two postcodes, a posh-leaning one and an immigrant/artist one. The posher part of Kreuzberg feels like stroller brigade central on the weekend, with boho dads and mums descending on the streets with little ones in tow. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Kreuzberg was the edgiest, coolest neighborhood in West Berlin. Nowadays, it retains a strongly alternative vibe, even if it has been challenged for pole position in the ultra-bohemian stakes by Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg, both in the former East Berlin.
