You can't really fault this hotel. It does exactly what you expect a corporate 4* hotel to do, without any fault or fuss. It's not luxurious, but it is clean, the rooms look fresh and it really is excellent value for money. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious enough for a city break. The breakfast provided... More

This is the fifth time i have stayed here and as usual it was a very enjoyable experience. As we were arriving on an early flight i emailed to ask if the room could be ready before the 3pm rule and was delighted when we arrived at 10.30 that we could go straight to the room. Highlights are the location,... More

The hotel is in a neighborhood (Friedrichshain) that although not in the tourist center, is located near mass transit points that connects to most of Berlin in a few minutes. The local community is a progressive place with lots of local bars and restaurants. You feel as if you are in a Berlin neighborhood with locals enjoying their area. The... More

Me and three friends stayed here for 4 nights and we can't complain. The staff we all very helpful and pleasant, we didn't speak very good German but thankfully the staff at reception spoke very good English so communication was not a problem. The rooms are basic but had everything we needed and they were very clean. Breakfast was great,... More

Only issue was the lack of... More

We spent 4days in Berlin. This hotel was great to getting around the city very close to all the transport systems. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good mostly continental but plentiful. There are some fantastic restaurants in the neighbourhood only a short walk away Would go back again and... More

We got a last-minute deal for this hotel, when our original lodging plans for our family vacation to Berlin fell through. The hotel and the room was comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was really nice with plenty of choices for the whole family. The area around the hotel is a mixture of run down and just getting fixed up. The... More

Location good for sightseeing as hotel close to local train station, maximum 10 minutes walk. However we had great difficulty finding good restaurants in the neighbourhood, and for this reason only, we would stay more central if visiting again. Neighbourhood somewhat run down and lots of graffiti, but we never felt unsafe. Initially we were in in standard double room.... More

Stayed here in December with a friend. Nice hotel 10 mins from train U-bahn/S-bahn into central Berlin. Good sized, clean room with pleasant staff on reception. Good choice of breakfast buffet. Nice to stay out of the City centre and in East Berlin for the contrast. 15/20 mins walk from East Side Art Gallery (longest stretch of Berlin Wall).

All you need for an ok stay but nothing more. The hotel is quite old. Furniture is outdated and temperature cannot be controlled (radiators). Although very clean, overall the experience is pretty basic. Avoid the rooms just above the hotel entrance. There are a lot deliveries during the night and they can give you sleepless nights. Good breakfast.
