The place has an unpleasant smell. The room didn't look nor smell clean, but worst thing was the bedding: there was no bed linen, just a mattress cover and a duvet. The duvet cover was stinky and had

Sandrine Nogues

Clean neat friendly hotel with great family rooms. Very efficient too!


It was okay


It is always a question of the cost-benefit ratio and if I had paid a lot less for the stay I would have been satisfied. Though paying 130€ for a rather uncomfortable bed is unacceptable for me. The

MEININGER Hotel Berlin East Side Gallery: The name says it all


Between the Oberbaum bridge and Ostbahnhof is the longest remaining piece of the Berlin Wall, which was immortalised by over 100 East and West German artists after reunification. The street art of the “East Side Gallery” tells the story of the radical political change and reunification. Opposite the impressive open air gallery MEININGER celebrates the exuberant lust for life of the early nineties. The graffiti and interior architecture are reminiscent of new beginnings and progress which gives the hotel a sense of the euphoria of the unification. Be united!

Discover our neighborhood in Berlin East Side Gallery


The district of Friedrichshain is home to MEININGER Hotel Berlin East Side Gallery and there is nowhere in the city quite like this place so come and discover it! This area is perhaps most famed for what lies just opposite to our hotel, the East Side Gallery: a political mural symbolizing the reunification of East and West Germany and the fall of the Berlin Wall. It is the longest open air gallery in the world, 1316 m in length, and can be found between Ostbahnhof and the Oberbaum bridge. The wall itself is covered in a magnificent and eclectic mix of artworks from around 100 different artists. It is visited by over 3 million people a year for a reason, so make sure you are one of the lucky ones to see this beautiful monument to unity and art!

Friedrichshain has a youthful, punky vibe so it is the perfect place for a MEININGER hotel to be based in. There are a number of lively and trendy nightclubs in the local vicinity that all do a great job of blasting out the latest techno, house and club music. If you are looking for a party in Berlin, this is a great area to find one.

If you are looking for some areas that are a little more chilled, then Friedrichshain can provide that to. There is Volkspark Friedrichshain park and garden with its winter toboggan run, 50 meter swimming pool and idyllic ponds. There is also the Urban Spree art gallery, representing urban cultures in order to foster peace in the community, a multitude of thirst quenching beer gardens and appetizing restaurants to experience! Transport within and out of this district is easy and affordable, with our MEININGER hotel just seconds away from Berlin Ostbahnhof train station.
