Why We Love This Hotel
- A modern hotel located near Checkpoint Charlie & the Kochstrasse U-Bahn station

- You can hire bikes & Wi-Fi is free throughout
- There's a well-priced Vietnamese restaurant on site & there's a wide choice at breakfast
After World War II, when Berlin was divided, this building had an important role as the headquarters of the Stasi (East Germany's secret police). Today, it is the modern Hotel Gat Point Charlie, which is a stone's throw from Checkpoint Charlie and therefore in an ideal location for exploring all Berlin has to offer.
It's an easy walk to Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz and the Trabi Museum, plus Kochstrasse U-Bahn station is only a few minutes' away on foot. It's also possible to hire bikes for a day from the hotel.
The hotel's Avan restaurant serves well-priced Vietnamese fare. Expect dishes such as spicy grilled duck breast in a sweet and sour sauce, Vietnamese summer rolls and Loatian curry with chicken breast and coconut milk. In the morning, a varied buffet breakfast is served. The hotel also has a bar.
The rooms are minimalist and quiet, with blackout curtains, free Wi-Fi and powerful showers. Upgrade to a Junior Suite for more space, complimentary water and juice in the mini bar, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
