“Goodness me!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

We stayed here for a 3 night city break a couple of weeks ago, mid November 2011. The place looked right on its website, in fact I thought it looked a little too good and was ready to be disappointed, but goodness me we couldn't believe just how good for us it was and at a very reasonable price! We arrived at 11 in the evening and found the entrance shut, but by using the intercom near the door we were soon inside. The room was huge with its own kitchen - perfect for us as we like to get our own breakfast; the 'Kaiser's' supermarket opposite the hotel was also a big plus. The queen-sized bed was comfortable and the bathroom couldn't be faulted. U-bahn 5 minutes walk, and just 2 stops from Alexanderplatz and S-bahn and buses - good if you like to use public transport as we do. The only fault was that the room smelt slightly of cigarette smoke and we are both non-smokers. Doubt I'll be happier with a hotel for quite a while.

Room Tip: Our room smelt a bit of cigarettes, so if you are non smokers perhaps you should stress this.

Although this hotel is in a need of a little updating we had a lovely stay here. Staff were friendly and helpful and our suite was huge, with a lovely lounge/kitchen area with huge corner windows, a bedroom leading off with a very comfy bed and an immaculate bathroom. The tv could have been better ( no English speaking channels, not even CNN) plus it had a built in video ( which shows how in need of updating it is!), but since we had come to enjoy Berlin this didn't matter. I should add that tyeh price was extremely competitive.This hotel is a little away from the main sites but very accessible: a 5 minute walk to the U bahn and then 2 stops to Alexanderplatz.. There are also bus routes nearby which take you to the Hbf and the Ku'damm. The neighbourhood is quiet and pleasant, with some nice restaurants nearby at Oranienplatz and a lovely cafe bar just up the road by a lake (Michaelkirchplatz).

Fantastic stay here at NH hotel in Berlin.
We were upgraded to a suite and the amenities and room were fantastic.
The location of the hotel is in a good area of Berlin, 5 mins to U-bahn station. There is a good range of shops and supermarkets near by the hotel.
Will stay here again when next in Berlin!

We booked this hotel for one night in November 2010 while in Berlin for a concert. The hotel was slightly difficult to find, being near the back of a mixed residential/commercial project. Check-in was quick and efficient and we were pleased to find out that we had been given a suite for the price of a standard room. The hotel had probably been constructed ten years ago, so the interiors were slightly dated. The staff gave us tips for a restaurant in the area, which was quite good. Otherwise, this is a residential area at the southernmost part of the Mitte district of Berlin. In order to reach other neighborhoods, one has to drive or take the subway. The beakfast was of a high standard, with a diverse selection of foods typical for a German buffet breakfast. I would recommend this hotel for someone who has a car or other transport and wishes a good, clean hotel in Berlin.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days in March 2010. It really exceeded our expectations. We stayed at the Juniour Suite.

The apartment had a very big living room plus a medium-sized sleeping room and a very good bathroom. A well-equipped kitchenette was available which was very valuable for us as we had to cook for our kid. Nothing really to complain about the room. The staff was helpful, speaks good English.

The area is very, very quiet and for those who don't want to have dinner at one of brilliant berlin restaurants, a supermarket is available within some 200 meters. The location is good - 5 minute walk to U-bahn and 10 minute to S-bahn, and the area is within reasonable distance to all major sites (not 'walking distance', though, but come on, Berlin is big).

A few disadvantadges: room view is nothing special (urban and plain), and so is the surrounding area (can't be compared to Charlottenburg, for instance), could be a little hard to find the right door at first, room wi-fi didn't work. But all in all, we had a lovely stay, and would definetely recommend this hotel.

Our room at the NH Heinrich Heine was huge, included a small kitchenette, and was impeccably clean. The furnishings (bed and small couch) were not particularly comfortable, though, and the location is in a fairly residential area, a healthy 15-20 minute walk from downtown sights like Alexanderplatz - not the plush, central place we were expecting for the price. As a side note, you have to pay with a credit card in order to use the internet.

We stayed at this hotel in August for a week. The first room we were given faced directly at the construction site. It was very noisy! We requested another room facing the courtyard and were given one later in the afternoon.

The room itself was very large. We had nice views facing the courtyard, a large living room with the only TV, kitchen area with microwave, fridge and small freezer, tons of storage space for clothes. It does feel like you're in your own little apartment in a neighborhood.

There are several--what I would consider--minor caveats about the hotel and neighborhood, but that I think deserve to be pointed out.

1. The construction is still going on and it's very loud. We were still able to hear it even though we were on the other side. Also, there are very loud church bells that go on for five minutes at 7:00am on the weekdays. Because our room faced the courtyard area, every noise outside was magnified. Someone rolling a cart outside can sound like thunder. If you're a light sleeper, you might want to take those factors into account.

2. The bed was comfortable for me but the mattress was very hard.

3. There was no air-conditioning but they did provide a fan that kept the room cool with it on. If there is a heatwave, however, the room might get too hot.

4. The tub was huge, which is nice if you like to really soak, but getting out was slippery and difficult for me being 5'3". However, my husband also commented (unsolicited) that the tub was a bit too deep for him as well.

5. The TV only has German channels. It would have been nice to have CNN or SkyNews.

6. The hotel will give you a code for 30 minutes of Internet use per day with your own laptop but if you want to use it for a longer period of time then you have to pay.

Some of the more positive points were:

1. There's a grocery store literally right outside the front of the hotel for snacks. Super convenient! We never bothered with the hotel breakfast because we were able to have whatever we wanted each day from the grocery store. There's also another larger grocery store less than a block away that's open later.

2. The metro stop is a five minute walk from the hotel. It's only a couple of stops to Alexanderplatz. We walked to Alexanderplatz one day. It's about a 30 minute walk at a normal pace.

3. The hotel staff are very courteous and professional. The housekeeping service was very good. They do the dishes and clean the room to the guest's schedule, earlier or later, whatever you prefer each day, and are quiet in the hallways.

4. The room is large, clean and comfortable.

There are no restaurants really close to the hotel, but since we had the kitchen it wasn't a problem. You can also take a quick trip on the metro to busier areas.

If you like to be in the middle of the action, near restaurants and clubs, you probably wouldn't be happy staying here. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would consider it again on a future trip.
