We recently stayed in the hotel for a friends birthday, the Junior Suite rooms were OK (But very dark and dingy, more like a Gay bar dark room), shower was spraying everywhere in the bathroom (except in the shower!) Spa area was fine, (Although nothing spectacular) and breakfast nothing to get up early for! Unfortunately we were recommended by the... More

The location was great - just in the middle of the gay district. The roof sauna was very interesting with a lot of action - witch is nice to have that in a hotel don't pay more for the room with street view - the room windows is very small and there is no difference between the room that turns...

Where to start? This hotel's bathroom is horrible. I stayed in 2 different rooms and both had issues. Show's had missing equipment. And on one had missing the soap and shampoo holder. Toilets are not private as you cannot close it fully (At least in my room). Water when showering goes out to the hallway. No space for suitcases. The... More

This hotel is not even a 1* hotel the staff was unprofessional and rude all the time. The room more than dirty with dust everywhere, not to mention the cleanliness of the bathroom with horrible bad smell from the drain. Even the "spa" dirty towels and beer cans on the floor and used condoms next to the jacuzzi. This is... More

Our room was clean but lacked closets to store our luggage/hang up clothes (don't know how smaller people are able to hang up their coats as I think that the 4 coat hangers are at a heigth of prox. 2mtrs).

I stayed many times at Axel Berlin, because as it is a gay hotel, I feel more comfortable. The staff were always very nice. The best thing about Axel hotel is that I played a lot there. During my first visit, someone knocked at my door, I opened it, and it was a cute and fit guy who worked there.... More

Ok...so! This hotel is a gay hotel as far as I could make out, so don't complain if you get here and find out afterwards...like me :-) My overall impression of the hotel is that it's weird, to say the least! The rooms are painted black which makes things feel dingy and dodgy, although rooms are reasonably well cleaned and... More

A friendly (not only heterofriendly) hotel in the most lively part of what once was West Brlin. The surounding area is full of interesting venues, from shopping (KDW department store, simplly the best), to museums (Museum of Bauhaus) and great gay venues.

今までいろんなホテルを泊まってきましたがここまでがっかりしたのは初めてでした。 ヘテロフレンドリーということで、コンセプトが面白そうと思って滞在してみました。 初めてのゲイホテルでした。 部屋につくと、色んなモノが壊れていました。 天井の一部はありませんでしたし、側壁の照明は一部が剥がれていました。 (最初はデザインの一部?と思いました) また黒い壁なので、ホコリがよく目立ちました。 さらにはセイフティーボックスが空いた状態でcloseになっており、 修理を頼みましたが、その日はtechnicianがいなくて修理できないと言われ、 翌日もそのままになっていました。 もっとがっかりしたのが、外のドアに「掃除して下さい」の札を下げていたのにも かかわらず、全く掃除もベットメイキングもタオルの交換もされていなかったことです。 すぐにするように頼みましたが、夜が遅すぎるという理由で、 結局タオル交換で済まされました。 良かった点は、地下鉄駅から近いこと。屋上のジャグジーが気持ちいいくらいでしょうか。 部屋を確認した時に、違う部屋に変えてもらえばまだ良かったのかもしれませんが、 それ以外のサービスの面が4つ星クラスではありえないと思いました。 このホテルは選択肢から外したほうが無難です。 It was the worst experience since I was born. At first, everything was broken in my room; ceiling, lighting and safety box. I asked a stuff to repair the safety box, but he said to me that he cannot do that because... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
