“Pop Art Hotel in East Berlin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Fine example of pop art decoration. Barbie doll pink being the main theme. Great if you are looking for a city centre hotel in the fashionable East Berlin. Service at reception should be improved. A view on to the rive spree is recomended in floors from 7 to 10.

The hotel is exactly how it looks in the professional pictures. The breakfast was extremely overpriced and we never dined in the restaurant. From the outset you can tell this hotel is aimed at business visitors, Universal music is next door hence the huge wall with music artists signatures.

The wifi is a little slow but for casual users you will be able to get online to check your emails eventually! The wifi is free if you ask for codes at the front desk.

The hotel is only a short trip from the east side gallery and that is about it for things in walking distance. However, Berlin's train system is very good and the hotel is a short walk from both the U-bahn and S-bahn.

I stayed here to celebrate my 21st and it did not disappoint! Beautiful hotel, gorgeous rooms, and on my birthday the hotel even gave me a card and a cake.
I recommend to anyone!

Somewhere between Rock and Roll Phillipe Starck fashion and the Japanese love hotel, the nhow in Berlin is a reasonable option for the overnight traveller, or party barhopper. To be honest the quirkyness of the design didn't do much for the overall comfort of the room. The design of the room almost masks the fact that the rooms are still pretty small. I would have appreciated more room in the bed area and not in the shower which might have fit 3 people if i tried (see love hotel). As with most of the newer euro hotels the heating system is turned on for the whole hotel by the grand poobah downstairs, and as a result my central air room was a bit chilly for a Berlin spring night. This however might not have been an issue in the summer. the room seemed technologically sound, although free internet (thank you) was slow as molasses (thank you anyway). There wasn't much storage, but as an overnight guest I didn't really need any. The room seemed well suited for the 1 night stand, planned or unplanned. the real asset of the hotel in my opinion was the design of the main entrance, restaurant and bar area with high ceilings and a lovely view. the bar is a nice hang at night, and the breakfast was comprehensive. staff was friendly. Good experience at the nhow, but I wish i didn't feel like I was sleeping in a box of crayons.

You know this is not your average hotel when you see the reception desk - purple plastic and then when you walk into the lifts (orange, pink, yellow, green - take your pick) on your way to the very, very pink bedrooms. If bright is your thing then this is the place for you. Guitars, drum kits and keyboards in the large reception area also lend credence to the idea that this is a music hotel. Bedrooms do the job although bed space is at a premium so mind you don't bang your head on the walls that fit tight against either side of the bed. The bathroom makes the most of the space and the shower is good when you can figure out how to use it (and when it works). I was never convinced that the aircon worked but opening the window invited in the road noise from a busy main road. Breakfast is very good - plenty of choice on a self service basis - but trying to order the promised eggs of your choice proved impossible as the staff were too busy talking and avoiding eye contact. A good all round hotel and one probably best suited to businesses.

Room Tip: Overlooking the river would be a better bet than the road.

If you don't, this hotel is unlikely to be or you. This hotel is great to stay in if you love pink, you are a musician, you like the idea of having 24 carat gold flakes on french fries, you need to be near Kreuzberg, O2 world or any of the media areas on the river.

Staff are friendly and personable and the breakfast selection was good, although the service was really slow during my time here.

I unfortunately won't be back as the hotel just wasn't to my taste.

Room Tip: Bring a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from the patterns on the floor

This hotel is for the young at heart and will keep you smiling the whole time your there.From the time you arrive this hotel will give you everything.The staff are very helpful and as for the bedrooms just go and book one ,fantastic colourful and if you like your music you could'nt pick a better hotel with its in room amps for your gutars brill.
Location is good for popping on a off the trains into the city but there is plenty of bars like the Yams beach bar which is right next to the berlin wall on the riverbank amazing party bar with great music and very resonable priced drinks.Very welcoming as was the NHow hotel ,brill time was had there and will be back there for sure.
