“very nice hotel to relax in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Good hotel for business, breakfast is very nice, the rooms are clean and spacious.

The two free beers and bottles of water in the rooms is a nice touch, and the film channels can be switched between languages so you can watch in your native language.

I do have to admit the WIFI is shocking and disconnects you constantly but is useable for browsing etc.

Room Tip: First floor makes it a short trip to breakfast

The hotel was perfectly located to visit most of Berlin's attractions and within walking distance. Rooms were comfortable, clean, well appointed and very quiet. The free beer and water supplied each day was a nice touch. We had no issues with the wi-fi for the first couple of nights but noticed a slow down over the weekend. As the hotel breakfast charge was expensive for what we wanted, we went to the little Backerei Cafe around the corner on Wallstrasse. The staff were friendly and efficient. There was a choice of restaurants both in the Nikolai quarter and at the Alexanderplatz (10-15 min walk).

Room Tip: We asked for rooms on a high floor, as they are usually quieter.

I would stay in this hotel again because of its cleanliness, location & affordability. But if I needed to stay in accommodation with good Wi-Fi, I would go to another hotel. It took 18+ hours to download 1 film from iTunes & it was impossible to Skype.

We were a little leery of checking in late due to some warnings we had read about hotels in Germany, but the hotel has a 24/7 staff and it was no problem to come in at 10pm like we did. We spent 5 days here, had a great time, and were always greeted by a clean room and complimentary beverages upon our return. It's right next to a U-Bahn station, so getting around Berlin - even to Potsdam or Dresden - is very convenient. The staff is friendly and were happy to speak English when my German failed.

Room Tip: Riverside rooms are $10 more per night, but we enjoyed our streetside room just fine. Breakfast is...

Relatively good hotel in city, the room was small as expected in this expensive city.

Internet was slow and not that helpful. Amenities were very normal and bed not that comfortable. If you really need to use the washing facilities in the basement, do ensure you have sufficient time to do this. I had the experienced that it took over 3 hours to wash and dry clothes, using both the washing machine and cloth dryer.

Complimentary drinking water and beer in fridge a great surprise.

However, staff were helpful especially Ilka. Very helpful to give directions for visiting attractions and providing what's needed during stay.

The underground station is just next to the hotel, very convenient to everywhere in the city.

If you wish to visit Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall Memorial, or Checkpoint Charlie go early in the morning where there are not many visitors yet.

We stayed at this hotel while celebrating New Year in Berlin and it was a good decision.

The hotel is centrally located, directly outside the U Bahn station which is really convenient. Trains are regular and only two stops from Alexanderplatz. We had apartments which were very spacious, quiet and comfortable. Reception was efficient in providing irons / ironing boards when we needed them, an extra pillow, booking taxis etc. Our rooms and the public areas were kept very clean and we even had a free beer in the room which was a nice touch. We didn't opt for breakfast which seemed a little expensive at 16 euro per person. There are many great places to get breakfast in Berlin so this wasn't an issue for us. Wi-Fi was slow but worked and as were were there for pleasure - not business, it wasn't a problem.

We have stayed in several hotels across Berlin and this ranks as one of the best. Will definitely stay there again!

Great location in front of a U Bahn station. Nice rooms with free water and beer every day ...BUT the wifi connection was awful and the spa was out of service all the week we stayed in there. I love the place but the low quality wifi could be a delabreaker
