Lovely modern clean hotel situated in a great part of town with loads of coffee shops, bars, restaurants and trendy shops. If I had to say one bad thing about the hotel it would have been nice if there had been tea and coffee making facilities in our room.

The location was ideal and across the street from the underground. The hotel was on a fabulous street with many restaurants and cafe's. If you like to walk it was close to everything. The room was a fair size and clean. A private water closet so need to get worried about the curtain surrounding(instead of a wall) the sink and... More

Clean and comfortable hotel at a wonderful price. Convenient to transportation. Short walk to river and Brandenburg Gate. Berlin is a great city to visit with great nightlife, fabulous museums and lots of history. We loved the on and off bus and the boat ride.

I arrived late one evening for a short business trip. I had no problem in finding somewhere to eat close by even at 11.00 p.m. on a Sunday. The room was very comfortable with a great view over the street. The breakfast buffet was adequate but not very exciting and in rather a dingy room. Though the address of the... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
