Just back from a great few days at this fantastic hotel.Everything from check in to the buffet breakfast was first class.Lovely modern room,spotless bathroom,friendly staff,fantastic cocktails....the list just goes on!!My only negative comment is that tea and coffee would have been good in the room but that's me just being picky!Will definitely be returning to this hotel in the future.

It was difficult to find a hotel in Berlin with a triple room, but Arcotel John F was able to accommodate us. The location is perfect. It's within walking distance to all the attractions, and it's also located on a quiet street.There is some construction in the area, but we couldn't hear anything inside the hotel. Our room wasn't the... More

This hotel is ideal after a busy (work) day. The metro is close by, there are (only) a few bars and restaurants close by, but with a few metro stops you're in Potsdamerplatz. The room was modern but small and smelled a bit "soapy". The free wifi was too slow, nothing to be proud of. Only solution seemed to be... More

At first Sight it looks like one of these mid-City Buildings wihout Charm. But once you've stepped into your Room, you realise it has all you need (a working TV, free wi-fi, lots of plugs, a cool shower and as a nice touch: a rocking Chair...). There is a Gym. And the location is just perfect! So it's ideal for... More

Stayed here in 2012 and could not believe how great the hotel was, We have all read reports and recommendations and when we arrive at the place think the reviewer was on prescriptive medicine or worse. So when we were shown to our rooms (two double) we wondered if we had been upgraded but to our amazement the rooms were... More

I attended a conference and stayed 3 nights at this hotel. I booked a superior room which was about the right level - Im not sure what anything less might have been like. For a city centere hotel the room was a good size but only had a large shower. You need to ask if you want a room with... More

The hotel is easy to find and well located to the metro. It is handy to many of the sights in Mitte. Its a modern functional looking hotel but also feels quote homely too. The welcomes we received at the front door and reception desk felt genuine and warm. This continued through the whole stay. Waiting staff, reception staff, cleaning... More

Well situated for tourists, the hotel is within walking distance to the museum island (about 7 minutes walk), shopping at Alexanderplatz (about 15 mins walk) and Gendarmenmarkt for restaurants and shops. There are also 2 U-Bahn stations (2 different lines) within 5 mins walk. Very convenient for exploring Berlin. The hotel room we were offered was rather small with 2... More

A good clean, modern room which was a good size. A great location to explore all the sights. The hotel lobby was spacious and welcoming and bar staff were friendly and personable. They made fabulous champagne cocktails!

What a find! As others have noted, the location is superb for exploring the heart of Berlin, and when you combine that with very comfortable, clean rooms, and excellent and attentive staff, and a pretty good breakfast, this hotel is quite the value. The room was larger than I was expecting, with a modern look despite it being Kennedy-themed. I... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
