We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2012.
We made the mistake of getting off the SBahn at Landsburger Allee and found its a hefty 30-35 min treck with the luggge. A far better option when coming from the airport is to get off at Osteruz and getting on a tram which stops more or less outside the hotel. At the tram stop near the S Bahn get on a tram which is going in roughly the same direction as the train you got off and alight 5 (?) stops later - its announced as Landsburger Alle - cant go wrong.
The Hotel is double badged with a Holiday Inn - I dont know if they use the same rooms, but the reception is the same for Holiday Inn and Grand City.
Rooms are large and comfy - we were on one of the upper floors and had a great view. There is no safe or coffee / tea making or fridge but the tv is good, the bed comfy and everything worked. Bathroom had a bath and the hot water worked well.
We paid for a bussiness room which is in effect just getting a normal room with a voucher for free wifi (Which worked really well). The price for the room was far cheaper than one would pay in the middle of the city and if one can live with the 40 / 50 min travel time to get there by Tram / S Bahn then its well worth it to save the extra.
Chck in / out was friendly and efficient. We didn't include breakfasts so cannot comment on it.
All in all the hotel did very well for us.
