Despite its slightly sketchy location on a busy street opposite the Hauptbahnhof, the Fürst Bismarck is a surprisingly attractive hotel that feels homey yet contemporary. Grandfather clocks and old-fashioned chests of drawers decorate the hundred-year-old hallways, and the hotel's rooms are reasonably sized and comfortable, although sometimes a little plain. Shopping on Mönckebergstrasse, whiling away afternoons at museums, and dining on Lange Reihe are just footsteps
away from here. Guests get a free three-day public transport pass.
