In all our travels we have never come across such friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were equally at home in German or English - and probably many other languages also. Location is ideal, this being the most interesting part of the city. Walking distance to Museum Island, Unter den Linden and - at a stretch - the Brandenburg Gate. Our room was clean and comfortable though I would have described the decor and furnishings as "edgy". C thought they were usual for Berlin. One of the best shower units we've ever had, so much so that we now intend to instal a replica at home. The restaurant served more or less international cuisine, very acceptable, and one night there was a jazz group as well. Remarkable range of health-conscious breakfast items. Complaints? A strange shortage of hooks for hanging anything. This problem is so common (it even applies to ship's cabins) that we can only imagine that hooks are in universally short supply. Market opportunity here?
Handy tips were - bus from airport & short underground journey very convenient for this hotel.
We gained free entry to the Reichstag by queueing at the kiosk across the road from the Reichstag. One can book a day ahead, we were lucky & had returned tickets almost immediately. We enjoyed one of the many round-town bus tours, half the price of similar in London! Our only mistake was to book just three days, far too short a time to do and see so much.
