Summary: Very nice business hotel in amazing location. Works great for tourists with great prices during the weekend.
I stayed here for one night during a long layover in Berlin. I booked the room the night before I arrived and the price was amazing for a 5 star hotel.
Access: If arriving from Tegel, take the TXL bus to Unter den Linden/Friedrichstrasse. Walk through Friedrichstrasse to the train station, and take a right. Very easy access. If you have a lot of luggage, take a taxi. If arriving from Schönefeld, take the train to Friedrichstrasse station.
Location: Great for tourists. A very short walk to unter den linden, Brandenburger Tor, the Bundestag, Tiergarten etc. You may have to use some kind of transport to get to the west (Ku'damm etc.), but that's no problem.
Reception: Pretty efficient. The hotel chain is Spanish, and most of the staff are Spanish. But they are pretty much fluent in both english and german. You get a welcome drink voucher for the bar if you book through the hotel web site.
Room: Had a standard room on the 4th floor, overlooking the atrium. It was a bit hot when I arrived, but the aircondition is efficient and easy to adjust. There is no need to open the window. The room was clean and pretty spacious. Big plus for having a wooden floor, not carpets. Huge and very nice bathroom. The view is great if you like trains, not so great if you don't. Note that there is absolutely no noise from the train as long as the windows are closed.
Amenities, pool: The amenities in the room are pretty good, but I would like a better coffee maker. Instant coffee doesn't work for me. The pool area is at the top floor. I only used it at night, so i couldn't look outside. But I suspect there is a great view from the pool when there is daylight outside. The pool area is small, but sufficient. Also includes a fitness room and two saunas.
Food, bar: Breakfast was not included in the room price, so I have no comments on that. If you would like to eat breakfast outside, there is a restaurant right next to the hotel as well as a Starbucks just down the street. If you walk down to Unter den Linden, there are even more breakfast places. I ate in the hotel restaurant. The food was pretty good, and the prices are not too bad. The selection from the bar is great.
