We booked Scandic for a girly break. The rooms were compact (big enough for a city break but certainly not spacious) and lacked a little in the way of storage. That said, they were clean, the beds were really comfy, it was quiet and the shower was great (I hate rubbish showers in hotels)
I do have issues with places that claim to be 'eco' but then change your towels anyway, which they did (but somehow managed to bring more and jumble them up with the dirty ones so we ended up with enough for a month!)
It was 37 degrees when we were there and I'm not sure if the aircon worked or was not that effective but the room was a bit too warm. But we had a big window which opened which was great for getting a breeze.
The location couldn't be better, right next to the U-Bahn and a few minutes from Potsdamer Platz and the Sony Centre. It also had free wifi in the rooms.
Breakfast was 20eur, we didn't try it but there was a great buffet in Alex in the Sony Centre (cereals, breads, cheeses, meats, salads, fruits and hot cooked) for 7eur so I'd recommend that.
It cost 190eur for 2 people, 4 nights it was a bargain. We were offered an upgrade 20eur per night per room which included the contents of the mini bar (re stocked each day) and a better view.
The hotel was quirky and the staff were lovely, highly recommended. .
I'd definitely stay again.
