Had a great time here. Very helpfull staff. Clean and comfy. After a couple of nights of not to comfy sleeping, the bed was a huge comfort. Also the fact that "Harry's New York bar" is right in the hotel is very practical! No problem to find the hotel after a couple of drinks.

Let's start on a positive note: Huge room Comfy beds Clean Great location near public transportation Very nice staff, especially the concierge And now, the bad news: Basic amenities one would expect from a 5 stars hotel are missing: laundry bags, shower caps, liquid soap, conditioner, kettle and coffee&tea bags. We stayed for 3 nights, and had to ask for... More

The location is great, a ten minute walk to the Tiergarten. The Brandenburg Gate is also reasonably close on foot too. The rooms are big and comfortable, and come with all the conveniences...coffee makers, phone charging stations by the bed, and speakers in the washroom to hear the TV (really!). This is not a budget hotel, but sometimes you can... More

What a lovely hotel! The room was spacious and clean with comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe space. Staff were friendly and helpful, speaking fluent English which was a real help. The location was great as long you don't mind a short walk to get to Potsdamer or a 15min walk to the train stop to reach other places. The... More

We stayed here for six nights and used it as a base to explore Berlin. The slight downside is the location, a ten min walk from the nearest underground and it is limited on bars/restaurants in the immediate vicinity. However saying that the hotel was a joy, staff were fantastic and friendly, the room was very comfortable and spacious. The... More
