“Excellent location, good staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have stayed here three times and each time, the stay gets better. The checkin is generally good and, where possible, they allow early access to the room.
It's perfectly situated for public transport, Wittenberg Platz U-bahn is a two minute walk as is access to the No.100 bus route.
Checkin is good and efficient, as is checkout. The staff are all helpful and very tolerant of me practising my 'school-days' German.
The rooms are comfortable, if not a little dated. The superior rooms have tea/coffee making facilities. The shower in the rooms are great and big too.
Breakfast is 10 Euros if booked in as room only, but the quality, choice and service are all excellent. If you prefer, there is a small bakery/cafe across the road.
I have managed to get good deals staying here (all booked through Expedia), which has made the stays here good value. Just a small word of advice - there is building work next door where an Ibis Hotel is being built. However at no stage did I hear any noise when in my room.

Excellent hotel situated 3 minute walk to underground station, KaDeWe store (like Harrods), shopping area, tourist hop on, hop off bus stop, 20 min from airport. Lovely restaurant, Noah's,
round corner excellent for relaxed evening meal.
Hotel room was clean, beds very comfortable. We had booked a standard room through Expedia with flights, the only thing that would have made if better would have been a kettle!! Breakfast buffet had loads of choice. The staff all spoke English and were extremely helpful.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Apprehensive as the rates for my flight to Berlin and the hotel seemed very cheap. Initial thoughts - slightly shabby room, fridge locked, bottle of water with a 5 euro price tag, occasional smell of drains in bathroom.
However, reception staff were fantastic as were bar staff; the breakfast was very German and as I usually have cereal and toast it was wasted on me (as was the 10 euro charge). Perhaps they could offer a continental version?
Position couldn't be better and the sound proofing worked a treat. I wasn't aware that I could have paid extra and had tea and coffee in what it turned out was the standard room also free refreshments in the corridors. This should have been made clear.
I would definitely return; hopefully the new Ibis next door wont take too much of their business. Well done folks!

Room Tip: Make sure you know that other (better) rooms may be available.

We stayed in Sorat Ambassador for 4 nights in may 2012
Room - old carpets, furniture from IKEA, wardrobe without doors, bed linen didnt fit to small pillows, for one day we didnt have hot water, no fringe in room, but clean
Hotel staff - helpful and very kind, but one day we were without hot water and they didnt even tell us this info, we needed wake up call twice - they woke us up only once (once they forgot)
Location - great - 100m from bus stop (bus 100) just few minutes from KaDeWe and restaurants, bars, shops and if it is nice you can even walk to city center

I stayed three nights at this hotel. I got a fantastic good rate. The double room I used alone, was clean, huge and comfortable. The hotel needs some upgrading, and also needs to get rid of the old carpets in the room. It lacks AC, so when it is hot in Berlin, the room is hot. And when you need to have your windows open, it is difficult to sleep, because the street outside the hotel is crowded. The staff at the reception was very good. They speak fluently English, and they give the impression that they like to help their guests. I would stay here again.

Old but clean big hotel with a great location close to e.g. KaDeWe, Ku'damm and the bus line 100 going around many sights. Our twin room was ok. Service polite. Breakfast versatile. Nice deck in the back yard for enjoying warm summer evenings.
