High ceilings and timeless classic style in our room and the lobby. This hotel is not bad! Unfortunately it was easy to get the impression that the staff hid inexperience behind their nice smiles. Three examples of this: - Upon check-in the receptionist had real trouble finding the reservation because of some sort of confusion of surname and first name.... More

I don't really know how to rate this hotel. Stayed with a group of 54 and the location is very good with the U1 Subway and the S-Bahn within easy reach. Very nice and helpful staff and good breakfast, but rooms are slightly dated and cleaning is not up to normal German standards. Found a sweater on the top shelf... More

The rooms were well maintained and the balcony room we had was pleasant. High ceilings made the from feel airy. The service is competent but curt. We received complementary bottles of wine which were impossible to open and the "California" brand white was awful. The red was plonk!. Breakfast included was excellent and was cafeteria style in a "cafeteria" style... More

Located on the Kurfurstendamm Strasse, you are in the middle of Berlin's answer to Rodeo Drive and 5th Avenue combined. The hotel has an outdoor enclosed patio and full service bar/restaurant street side. This hotel survived the allied bombings and was converted from an apartment complex to a great hotel. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms (contrary to what it's web... More

The outside of the hotel is appealing and the location is ok because of the proximity to shopping and restaurants; but there are many shopping areas in Berlin and that is about the nicest thing I can say about this hotel and our experience. My fiancé and I were late getting into Berlin because of a train delay and we... More

This to me was the least customer-friendly hotel in terms of policy and overall accommodation. We got in abt 6 to check-in for our booking and received a substandard room to which I requested a Queen size bed. We arrived to find a double-bed with a dormitory sized room and poor cleanliness- there were several hairs found on the pillow... More

Red carpet at main door, chandeliers, spacy reception, marble.. ..and location, location, location! 5 nights in the hotel, tested two rooms with the family. The smell of the cellar in other room was evident, specially when entering into the bathroom after keeping the door closed.. Other room's interior was from 80's, and so were the beds too, most probably. Wireless... More

Staff informed us about how getting along in the City for the best price - taking the right card for 3 people was cheaper than the Berlin Card... More

A friend of us recommended this hotel and the anniversary special they offered (for their anniversary, not ours), which included a welcome drink, free minibar, a massage, fresh fruits and a 'special surprise' at the room. We chose the hotel because of this and would have stayed in a different part of the city otherwise. Well let's start with the... More
