the Ackselhaus is an excellent choice. Ok...I can't say anything about the Hotel rooms but at least the fasade looks very charming. The location can't be better. You have dozens bars and restaurants in walking distance. The nightlife and club scene is very busy in that are. Beside of that you are still close enough to the sights in Mitte.
Experiencing Prenzlauer Berg is actually a great idea. If you ask me Prenzlauer Berg is the best district in Berlin. There is still something like a boheme culture although it is rather commercialized now. You can compare it to SoHo or the Villages. Well, Prenzlauer Berg is actually my district so I'm not very objective in this case.
Also the Lux 11 would have been a good choice but if I was a tourist I would like the Ackselhaus' location better.
