This hotel is positioned in a quiet street but very nearby to public transport and shops / cafes. The hotel itself is quirky but the rooms are large and immaculately clean. The bathroom was very up to date and had a wonderful shower head and lots of space. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times and made checking in... More

I had high hopes of Ackselhaus when I found it - good reviews, and a website which made it look like a top notch place. Pricey, but worth it, I thought. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case. I'll take you through the experience from the beginning... I booked a room for my 90-year-old grandmother. As I wanted everything to go as... More

Spent 2 nights here following the Berlin marathon, moving across the city to experience some of East Berlin. Public transport, even with heavy cases, is really easy in Berlin, and we had no trouble finding Ackselhaus with a bit of forward planning. Reception staff were extremely helpful and we were given the "Rome" room which was beautifully decorated and had... More

I have to score this full marks for its amazing rooms, superb breakfast and spot on setting in the loveliest part of town. Staff are lovely too. This is reflected in the prices. Fair enough except you cannot pay by card. With such a large bill to settle you might worry about walking around with so much cash in your... More

There are few hotels that I'd actually want to live at, but the Ozean (Ocean) nautical themed apartment was an exception. It was so comfortable, spacious and well stocked. The check -in hostess was such a friendly woman. She gave us tips on where to watch the World Cup. Go Germany! The apartment was immaculately clean and well tended. We... More

Stayed here with my husband in the Picasso room and have to say this is by far one of our faves ever. I would move here and live here if I could. Everything was super clean and well appointed. Large comfy bed, great staff. The decor is a dream and I have to congratulate whoever designed this room and space.... More

We spent 8 nights at Ackselhaus and Blue Home in the middle of June. We had already been travelling in Europe for 3 weeks so this was the perfect place for us to stay. The staff happy, nothing worse than being greeted by surly staff after a long train trip, and always ready with advice on restaurants ect. I had... More

The Ackselhaus Blue Home in Berlin is located in the center of the city and is very close to Alexanderplatz and major attractions in Berlin. I had lived in the city when it was divided and so we chose to stay in an area that had been in East Berlin. We were given the Afrika room - decorated in an... More

We stayed in the Summer House which is absolutely stunning. I loved the decor, the private rooftop pool, and the view of Berlin. It was better than the photos on the website. The staff, especially Francisca, were extremely friendly and helpful. Our adult children stayed in the Ocean apartment which did not have the views, but was nicely decorated and... More
