What an unbelievable disappointing place! Receptionists are unprofessional and very disrespectful. The cleaning is very bad, almost a threat to one's health, in particular for children. Non friendly place with communist management. Just pay, and shut up is their slogan. It is unbelievable that in such a beautiful city like Berlin exists such a horrible hotel with bad management leadership.... More

The location is great and for this they charge. It is a Spa with some hotel rooms on the 3rd floor of an appartment building. Old and smelly rooms, not very clean . I would rate it 2Star plus but very overpriced. If you book it and travel by car reserve a parking space . You need it in this... More

I chose this hotel for the location, and because it was less expensive than the Melia right across the river. The location was indeed perfect, and our corner room was delightful---spacious, well-appointed, with three windows providing lots of light. The jacuzzi tub in the bathroom was useful for soaking feet tired from walking all over Berlin! Reception was very nice... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. It's on the river and right across the street from an S/U Bahn stop at Friedrichstrasse. The room itself was pretty large for just a double room, and the bathroom too. The room itself was really hot, but that is because no one really has A/C in Berlin it seems. Even the museums... More

The location is fine just by the river (I asked for the room with the river view, but probably not all the rooms have it). This had great esthetic advantage but was quite irritating by night - very noisy neighborhood due to many restaurants located by the river, so it was impossible to sleep with the window open. The room... More

The hotel located on a river bank across from one of Berlin's busiest shopping area. Within a few minutes walk, you can reach all the trendy restaurant along the river. By the way, there is a famous restaurant right in the hotel (although I found this place over rated.) The hotel claims that they have everything to offer to any... More

Website says they have WiFi, in reality they don't. You might get two minutes of functioning internet out of their connection if you sit all day trying. Doesn't work in the room, does not work in the creepy hallway. Decor in the lobby is golden and tacky, that's fine. Breakfast is not included, plenty of cafés nearby, that's fine too.... More

I booked this hotel kind of last minute for a business trip. I made my reservation through Booking.com and the price (149 Euro for 1 night, breakfast included) was very good compared with other hotels In the same area. My room was pretty big, with a very confortable bed, a wide bathroom with two sinks a big shower, and -... More

I really enjoyed my staying at this hotel. good position, very nice view out of the window, very good cleaning service, good price-quality rapport. you can definitely get a good sleep since the rooms are quite isolated between them. I think they might improve the service if they were to include the breakfast in the cost and if they were... More
