First - let's get this straight - this hotel has NOTHING to do with Alexanderplatz! Alexanderplatz is a 15 minute tram ride away. The good news is the tram is right outside the hotel, and a good portion of the time, the hotel staff have tickets at the front desk. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay away from the noise of Berlin, this is the ticket. But if you come to Europe to experience pubs and fresh bakeries, this is not the place. There is not much around this hotel - a lovely little restaurant on the street behind the hotel across from the Malzerei, (which hotel staff have a difficult time directing you to) but that is about it. The hotel is comfortable, clean rooms, all the expected amenities and good food, but internet is VERY spotty. And not really a place for leisurely breakfasts - if you are in the restaurant after 9 am expect staff to hover over you waiting for you to leave - that was a little unpleasant. If this hotel is for tourists, they should make the location clear and be more pleasant for leisurely breakfasts, if it is for business, IMPROVE YOUR INTERNET!!!
