This hotel is just far enough away from the hbf to be quiet, yet is still only a short walk to the transport links and the Alster lake. A lot of folk have said the single rooms are small, so I booked a double for the same price on Booking .com. Everything was clean and nice. Free Wifi worked well.... More

Booked hotel through Booking.com as always. Great location, 400 meters from railway station. Central to all Christmas markets and walking distance to many of the sightseeing places. Reasonable price, breakfast included which was very good. Only thing is we paid for upgrade to queen bed however, room very small, en suite very small and had two single beds! But not... More

It's nice and clean, but zero frills. No kettle, no in-room iron and sub-student accommodation furniture. The room was tiny and the carpet wasn't a looker. That said, the location's great for the central station and the staff are friendly. The guy on the desk when I arrived around 10pm couldn't speak much English, but why should he? We managed... More

Overview: Hotel is classed as 3 Star, very close to Train station and a few restaurants. Staff: Reception was really pleasant, helpful and was generally good. In breakfast room they did not really talk to anyone or respond to anyone, I felt more that I was in the way. Breakfast: Simple breakfast, they did have scrambled eggs but that was... More

We enjoy it, a nice hotel, clean, quiet, good breakfast, and close to main station Hauptbahnhof, and city center. The room was very small, we barely had space for the luggage. Nice staff also, but the prices are a bit expensive for the small space.

We had a booking to a another hotel, but it was overbooked so we were "guided" to this hotel. The room was at 5th floor, it was hot like a sauna. There was two windows to open, but those didn't help at all. No ventilation at all, outcluding the toilets ventilation which didn't work. Staff was -3, doing all other... More

This was a 3-night stay while I attended a conference at the nearby Meridien. The location was perfect. Once you know the local geography, it is a 5-minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof which has a direct train to the airport (25 minute ride, €3.10). My single room was fine - queen-size bed, large bathroon, the free WiFi worked, although a... More

The location is ideal, in the heart of the city and within walking distance of the main train station and other public transport hubs. The neighbourhood itself, is also pretty and offers a wide range of cafes and restaurants as well as gay-friendly bars (in Lange Reihe). The rooms are clean, but ours was incredibly tiny. You couldn't swing a... More

After being in Berlin in a business hotel it was nice to be in this hotel that had a home from home feel to it. Room was small but cozy, warm and immaculate. Rooms are not sound proof in any way you could hear people talking in the corridors which with children could be a problem. Receptionists were really friendly... More
