We stayed as a school group here in February 2013. The chain styles itself somewhere between a hostel and a hotel, so a mix of private rooms and dorm rooms are available.
The whole hotel is relatively new and clean. Reception staff are multilingual and very helpful, selling transit tickets and providing info on the neighbourhood.
A reasonable buffet breakfast is provided. It's mostly meats, cheese and breads but well stocked and well maintained. Because of the large number of groups in the hotel, breakfast needs to be scheduled for everyone except individuals and families, and inconvenient wristbands have to be worn throughout your stay to indicate entitlement to breakfast. There's also a guest kitchen in the basement if you want to self cater.
Downsides are the large groups themselves - ill mannered and/or noisy school children or students are a given. The hotel also offers comprehensive free wifi throughout the hotel, but it seems to come under strain in some areas, constantly dropping out in our rooms.
The location is excellent for walking and touring, and the northern exit of Senerfeldplatz U-Bahn (U2) is right outside.
