What is being taxed?
As of 1 January 2014, the federal state of Berlin will collect a hotel occupancy tax on all overnight stays in hotels in Berlin. A “hotel” includes any type of short-term, paid accommodation, and the tax is due whether or not the hotel guest actually spends the night in the room.
If a room is reserved, but the guest cancels the reservation before arrival, the occupancy tax is not charged.
If the guest is in Berlin on business, the occupancy tax is not charged.
In this case, the guest must give the hotel satisfactory proof that his or her stay is for business reasons. This proof must be provided at the latest by the time the guest leaves the hotel.
If the bill is made out to the guest’s employer or is paid directly by the employer, or if the reservation was made by the employer, no further proof is required.
Written confirmation from the employer, including the name and address of the employer and the duration of the stay, or written confirmation from the guest (including the same information) can also serve as proof.
People who are self-employed or are owners or co-owners of a company can provide comparable proof. This could also be a written statement that includes the guest’s income tax identification number.
Providing information to a hotel to prove that a stay is business-related is voluntary.
If the guest does not want to provide proof to the hotel, he or she can pay the tax and then apply to the relevant tax office to have the tax reimbursed. Proof that the stay was business-related must then be provided to the tax office.
If more than one person is staying in the room, the hotel must ask for proof from each one of them.
Who is liable for the tax?
The hotel is responsible for collecting the tax and passing it on to the federal state of Berlin.
How much is the tax?
The occupancy tax is 5% of the price of the hotel room (without extras, such as meals, items from the minibar, the use of hotel services and facilities not included in the room price, etc.).
the apartment was exactly as described and we enjoyed the neighbourhood with good restaurants...cosy cafes and easy access to the S- and U-bahn. The flat is nice, light and clean. Walking upstairs to the fifth floor with no elevator was good daily exercise. absolutely a place I would recommend.
We booked Marco's apartment in Berlin for the celebration weekend of the fall of the Berlin wall.
Unfortunately, the Deutsche Bahn decided to go on strike and we were unable to travel to Berlin... We contacted Marco, who was very helpful and understanding. He offered us to come to Berlin another weekend, free of charge!
Marco, thanks a lot for your help and your generous offer, we had a wonderful weekend in your cosy apartment!
I really enjoyed staying in Marcos Apartment, cosy flat in the fifth floor with nice neighbourhood, close to the underground, just a few stations to Alexander Platz - and very nice hosts!
Marco's apartment is really nice. The cleaning lady was very helpful. We had a nice stay!
Квартира расположена в замечательном тихом и уютном районе, 5-10 минут до метро.
Квартира оснащена всем самым необходимым (кровати, кухня, холодильник).
Продуманы приятные мелочи, как чай/кофе, шампунь и гели для душа.
Приятный вид из окон.
Comfortable and fully equipped apartment. Convenient to public transport in a delightful neighborhood.
Marco and Anna where extremely nice and welcoming.
The apartment is great. Has everything you need for a short stay in Berlin. It is in a convenient location.
The only negative worth mentioning is that it is on the 5th floor of the apartment complex with no lift (elevator). This doesn't seem like a big issue but carrying up luggage and walking up and down over 100 stairs everyday is tiring and annoying.
We did arrive late to pick up the keys as our train was delayed but it was quite a long process to finally get into the apartment. We tried calling the number we were provided to tell someone we were running late but that phone number and Marcos number never answered. This turned into a 2 hour process to find an internet cafe, contact Marco, find where the key was now left, then return back as there was no number on the key or door to know which apartment it was, then return yet again to the internet cafe (as we are travelers without wifi) to ask for the wifi password. Just bad forward thinking from Marco on information we needed. These only seem like small issues but are quite frustrating. But overall I would recommend this apartment to stay at.

If you like to plan your travels so as to cater for your own tastes and time-frames, why stay in a hotel? A real home in one of the many unique streets of Berlin could be much more pleasant.
You can make tea at any time, whist taking in the city from your flat’s balcony, or enjoy the luxury of breakfast in bed, whilst you plan your day. On your return you will find a warm and welcoming environment which is miles away from an anonymous hotel room.
