Spent three nights in this hotel in May, and I must say I sort of fell in love with it. Strictly speaking there are no fancy things which should make you excited, but it boils down to a cosy, almost family, feeling. Rooms are no luxury, but nicely designed with a bit "rough" touch. Very good beds, dense and stable but not too hard.
No "darkroom curtains", so if you want it pitch black during night this is not possible. You can use the normal curtains to shut out most of the light though.Toilet with shower cabin was spotlessly clean and looks newly renovated. Sink is not in the toilet but in the room, a bit odd, but works well. The wooden room floor squeaks quite a bit when you walk on it, charming or annoying, you decide.
Friendly and nice staff, doing their best to make you feel happy. Breakfast is good with most things you would expect, and the staff will fix egg, bacon etc. if you want it. Very good location close to subways, shops, clubs, restaurants. Although the area is a bit of a gay district with lots of sex-related shops and bars, it is no problem and feels completely safe.
Free WiFi in the hotel with relatively good speed (around 3 Mbps downlink), somewhat less in the evenings as probably other rooms added to the load. Old but working elevator taking you to the third floor (all rooms are at that floor).
Added some pics from room 8, which is a double room facing the Fuggerstrasse. I will definitely come back to this hotel for my next trips to Berlin.
