“Some very good rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The satisfaction with ArtHotel Connection very much depends on in which room you're staying.

The first night we (hetero couple) stayed in a 'standard room' which was small, not very stylish and had a terrible (old) bathroom. From the second day we switched to a higher category and got room number 6. It was like entering another world: stylish, huge, clean, with a very nice (small but new) bathroom. Room number 6 I would prefer even over a room in Regent Hotel.

From the second day we loved the hotel, were happy about our choice not staying in one of the typically huge 5* hotels. The complete building, the old elevator and the very friendly service.

WiFi is very good, but the best point is the breakfast. It's principally served whenever you want. And at EUR 10 it's perfect, very good German bread rolls, a good selection of cold cuts, jam, honey, fruits and even eggs-to-order.

When next time in Berlin we'll stay at ArtHotel Connection again - but straight away will chose one of the good rooms.

Room Tip: Spend a bit more and take one of the better rooms

We have stayed at the Art Hotel Connection before, so we knew that we would have a good stay; our room (no.6) for this visit was amazing: a huge room outfitted in the uniquely eclectic 'Berlin style' with a chandelier, a lovely 'robust' steel bed, a huge leather sofa and beautiful big windows with a spectacular view over the Fuggerstrasse (perfect for watching the Folsom Europe street fair).

The level of Service from the staff was exemplary: nothing was too difficult and every interaction was greeted with a genuine smile. The breakfasts were really 5 star - available until 4pm, with a huge range of cereals, yoghurt, breads, cheeses and cold meats, with an option for freshly cooked eggs (which were honestly the best I have eaten anywhere).

One of the nicest hotels you could ever wish to stay at.

Room Tip: Street-side rooms are spectacular - but be prepared for a little noise, despite the double glazing...

Great location, clean rooms and very friendly english speaking staff, what more do you need from a hotel in a big city, good value it has that also.
Had a three night stay over a long weekend, 20euro taxi ride from Tegel Airport inc of tip, a Five min walk to the Ubarn (tube) and some nice restaurant near by, with a good selection or bars a short walk away. I will stay here any time and look forward to my next stay

Friendly hotel in great location near to Wittenberg platz. Very helpful staff and good value. Night club located in same building as hotel. No sound in hotel. Modern rooms and spacious. Play rooms are available as an annexe to 3 of the rooms.

This was our second stay at ArtHotel Connection. A travel mate and I were in separate rooms, mine facing the huge inner courtyard and his facing the side-street. Each of us was in a single this time, having been in separate doubles the last time.

Room 5 has a single bed; his,15, a larger "French single." Like a classic European bedroom in a large home, my sink was in the bedroom and the shower and toilet in the WC.

With a beautiful view of ivy-covered walls, trees, and bushes in the inner courtyard, it was more like being on a country estate than in the heart of the active Fuggerstrasse. The hotel is also a quick walk to Wittenberg U-Bahn and there is an excellent variety of restaurants from takeaways to white tablecloths.

Each room is uniquely decorated with a bespoke bed in each - great modern metal things which are a wonderful contrast to the high ceilings, arty chandeliers, and traditional architecture. And it all works.

The individual attention shown by Jens and Hauke can't be beat by the nicest concierge in the fanciest hotel. For them, and the other staff members, it isn't so much a service they provide as it is who they are naturally.

I would go back to Berlin just to stay here.

Room Tip: The inside rooms provide a beautiful, verdant view; the larger rooms appear to be the street-facing...

it's a little lovely and fabulous gem hidden inside a lovely old building on the 4th floor,lovely design and every room has its own different style!amazing staff very friendly and helpful and they all speak excellent English.

I stayed in the superior double room that had an Art Deco style and was very spacious with high ceilings that included my private toilet and shower and I really enjoyed it.

Breakfast is also amazing (served until 4 P.M.) for all those party people sleeping until late ;)

It's a gay hotel and of course very Straight friendly located in Schoenberg gay area and only two streets down one of the main shopping streets of Berlin and only a few meters away from the famous (KaDeWee) department store.

great value for money,location,service and of course a very comfortable stay.

returning again end of October 2013 and would not stay anywhere else in Berlin anytime am in this lovely city.
