“Oct. 2011 visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

We (an American couple in our 60s) spent 6 nights at this hotel in October during our first visit to Berlin. The property met all of our important criteria: it was clean; the staff was helpful; and it is in a good location. Our room was quiet (we were on the top floor) and the breakfast was standard but good. With the U-Bahn stop only a 1/2 block away, you could reach most areas of the city in 30 minutes or less. The restaurant across the street (Tapas y Mas), not operated by the hotel, is good and very convenient. If you are looking for a mid-range property (neither 5 star nor hostel), we recommend it.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights last week.My room was small but very comfortable and clean.It had a large TV and tea and coffee making facilities.The staff were very friendly and helpful.If you are staying at this hotel you hardly need to use the transport system as it is within walking distance of so many of the main places of interest.There is a subway station,Spittelmarkt,nearbye if required.If you are coming from the airport by train to Alexanderplaz you can use your 3 euro ABC ticket from Alexanderplaz S station to Spittelmarkt and the hotel is only round the corner.I will definately use this hotel again on my next visit to Berlin.

Travelled to Berlin for a surprise anniversary trip for my wife and stayed in this lovely, clean hotel.

Staff were friendly and spoke brilliant English (as my German is rather ropey!!).

We never used the restaurant but the small bar had everything you could want (including some rather delicious German beers) and there were also tea and coffee making facilities available to take to your room.

Location was great and is near to the U-Bahn station so you are literally 5 minutes from Alexanderplatz and Potsdamer Platz which were bustling with shops, christmas markets and ....erm.... Beer Halls!!

The only flaw I found with the rooms was the fact that it had two twin beds pushed together rather than a double and as a man of six feet and four inches i was sometimes a centimetre or two away from a tumble onto the floor!!

Room Tip: The 8th floor is quiet but had no WiFi access (seemed only to be available in the lobby)

Great in every way....good position, very close to Spittelmarkt subway. Very clean and tidy rooms, good bathroom with excellent shower. Wifi in the lobby, only improvement would be wifi in the rooms. Breakfast for 9 euros was great value and everything to choose from. Very helpful staff.
Would really recommend this hotel.

Spent 3 nights in Berlin in December 2011. Great hotel - room was quite small, but clean, tidy and functional. Bathroom was nice with a hairdryer. Room was quite hot, despite trying to use the air conditioning control panel. Great breakfast and really friendly, helpful staff!

The neighbourhood is quite, but beware - it's currently surrounded by some very noisy building sites, starting work around 6.30am!

Great location - 2 minute walk from the Spittlemarkt U-Bahn station. Also within walking distance of a lot of the main sightseeing spots -Alexanderplatz, Berliner Dom, Gendarmdenmarkt....

Would stay here again!

This is a new hotel but I have to say it it in the middle of a "building site". Make sure your windows are closed before 7am as the noise of the contractors and their machinery is not good. Very clean rooms but tiny, no frills. Your room will not be comfortable enough to spend much time in, other than being asleep. There is one upright rigid chair and a very, very low bed.

The one major thing that this hotel needs is a decent bar to come "home" to after a days sightseeing. The seats mostly do not have a back to them you feel as though you are not encouraged to spend any time there. Thank goodness to the fabulous Irish Times Bar turn right out of the hotel, then left cross the round and a short walk away you will stumble upon it on Leipziger Straße . http://www.oscar-wilde-irish-pub.de/it_index.html. We were made so welcome, the food is really good pub food with very good portion sizes.

Back to the Best Western, we never ever felt that we could find a comfortable seat, in your room or even at breakfast, which I have to say is quite good. So many fruit juices, meats, cheeses, etc. One big worry for us was that nobody "policed it". We felt that anyone could walk in off the streets and eat there, we were never once (5 nights) asked for our room number.

Luggage could be left there safely for a refundable 1 euro, but it does fill up very quickly. I would suggest going down and reserving your "box" the night before.

The reception staff were really helpful. Free internet access in the reception.

To sum this hotel up is: don't expect anything other than a bed to sleep in, in a clean room - which is all you could ask for as we don't want to see Berlin from a hotel bedroom. Be aware of the noisy works outside at the time. Don't expect to have a nice bar to unwind in after a full days sightseeing.

You really must visit the restaurant in the TV Tower, not expensive but totally unmissable. Remember to book your table online before your visit. You will then get fast tracked VIP service up to the top. Unfortunately you are not a VIP on the way down but the queue does move quickly and organised.

Room Tip: TV Tower for lunch is essential
