We stayed at this hotel for four days in December to celebrate New Year's Eve .The hotel is great and the location is perfect near by are an U-banh and S-banh station.The staff is very helpful and breakfast was great. One minus - the room was to hot but other wise we were very happy to stay in this hotel.

Stayed here for New Year 2014/15. Having read the reviews we were expecting something pretty special. Unfortunately though there were some things that let this hotel down. Firstly the positives: helpful & friendly staff, good breakfast and everywhere spotlessly clean. The hotel location though was disappointing and not as good as others we have stayed at in Berlin. There were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a bed and breakfast basis. Hotel was really comfortable, clean and very friendly. It was however in a rather run down part of the city.

Stayed here when going to a concert at Astra Kulturhaus, only a ten minute walk away. The location is good, lots of small shops and restaurants in walking distance. Not high street shopping though, for that you'd have to go down town. But for more alternative shops (like used records) it was great! Wifi in the hotel was actually decent... More

Nice hotel in what seemed like a good neighborhood. Close to metro and a ton of restaurants. Cross over main street and every type of restaurant you can imaging. Rooms were clean and large, we had wifi so I don't what the other reviewer was talking about. Just ask the front desk for a login/password and your good to go.... More

We wanted a city break in Berlin during February half term 2014 and came across this hotel. Nothing to look at from the outside but it was ideally placed. Our room was large with plenty of space to put luggage, large bathroom with powerful hot shower, towels and hairdryer. Two large beds with lovely pillows and quilts, so slept well... More

The breakfast was great! The rooms were fine, but it would have been nice to have wifi access from the rooms. Worth it for the breakfast, though. It was much more affordable because it's a little ways away from the city centre, but it's Berlin! The tranit system is great, you can get anywhere in a very short amount of... More

No regrets on facilties or breakfast - everything was very good. But the hotel was too far from city center and no good restaurants nearby, so we ended up taking train every day, costing us extra to travel back and forth.

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
