excellent for a family stay, huge suite (no kitchenette in ours, wasn't a real problem though), good value for money as much as we saw (~150EU per night w/o breakfast), extremely close to public transportation (U and S stations with elevators are 1-5 mins walking), restaurants, cafes, bakery, convenience stores in the parallel street to the north, a big REWE...

Great location for getting around Berlin - both walking and public transport. We walked to the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate from the hotel, as well as several restaurants along the river. The rooms were clean and well supplied. Part of our group was upgraded to a suite on the 7th floor, which was fabulous! Amazing view of the city and... More

This was a combination business-family trip as I had a meeting for 2 days and R&R for 3 days. We stayed in 2 rooms, one for my husband and I, and one for our 20-something kids. The rooms overlooked the back of the hotel and were extremely quiet. Our room 412 had a hallway along the backside with extra windows... More

A very nice, modern hotel on a rather quiet street. We didn't have the fanciest room, but it was clean, air conditioned and had everything we could ask for. The staff was beyond friendly.

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.
