Stayed 4 nights on a city break to Berlin. Must be one of the best cities in Europe for a mini-holiday: art, culture, liveliness, and fascinating modern history, good and bad. The NH is ideally located. Friedrichstrasse feels like it's right in the heart of things, within walking distance of 90% of what you're likely to want to see (if you're a serious walker). Just outside the NH is access to the U- and S-train systems, bus and tram stops. Despite what others say, the breakfast is quite reasonably priced by the standards of Berlin hotels: 21 euros p/p on a one-off basis, but 15 euros if you pre-book for your entire stay for an all-you-can-eat buffet. Whether it's worth it to you depends, of course, on whether you like a hearty breakfast or a light one. If the latter, there are several coffee houses a few metres away where you can get a typical continental breakfast for 5 or 6 euros.
The hotel has a welcoming lobby and terrifically friendly and helpful staff. Free use of the health spa is a handy amenity; the sauna is modern and clean. On the other hand, our room was significantly smaller than you'd assume from the photos and pretty utilitarian, almost drab: stained and somewhat threadbare carpet; pre-flat screen TV (not that we wanted to watch, even once); painted in institutional colours, with almost no art on the walls. BUT it was cleaned thoroughly every day, the bathroom was spotless and pleasant to use, and the bed was comfortable.
The biggest negative was a problem that is common to tourist and business hotels the world over: room lighting that is totally inadequate for reading or working -- except in the bathroom! Not much that even the most helpful staff can do about that, I suppose.
All in all, very reasonable price for great location. We'll be back soon.
