I found the hotel on this site in best budget hotels, and wasn't disappointed. The hotel used to be the Etap (still listed on google maps as Etap) but it's now part of Ibis Budget range and is part of Accord Hotels.com.
I reserved my room online and checked in with no problems, paying on arrival.
We were given a nice twin room on the 5th Floor which looked out East onto Mollstrasse. The windows must be strong double glazing as when shut there was no noise from the several lanes of traffic outside or the passing Trams. The room had it's own air conditioning/heating which could be controlled on a panel near the toilet. However it only seemed to come on in the evening and over night, but as we were out all day this was perfect.
We didn't add the breakfast option, but there were a couple of vending machines for drinks and snacks in the main entrance foyer. There is no Tea or coffee making facilities in the room but again there is a machine in the foyer. I also borrowed a Hairdryer for the weekend at reception for a small deposit of 5 Euros.
The room was neat and clean but fairly basic (A bit like an Ikea Showroom). The main issue for people sharing is that the Shower cubical (complete with frosted privacy glass) opens straight into the shared room. However as the toilet has it's own separate cubical, it can be used as a sort of dressing room. Depends how well you know your friends I suppose!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and all spoke English. They also have a storeroom where they let us store our luggage after checkout so we could enjoy the day before catching our flight that evening.
Next time I go to Berlin I will defo look into booking here again as it's really good value for money and only 10mins walk (across various lanes of traffic) to the central Alexanderplatz area!
