I stayed in this hotel in December for 3 nights with my boyfriend, and I have to say it was one of the best I've been in. The staff were very friendly, and all fluent in English, which was helpful as my German leaves a lot to be desired.
We stayed in a double room at the back of the hotel, which I requested due to reviews of noise, and it was beautifully quiet. The room was also spotlessly clean, very well heated, and had good facilities (the bathroom was fantastic!). We did however have twin beds pushed together to form a double, with two single duvets, but we didn't find this a problem, and the beds were extremely comfortable.
When booking the hotel, we also pre-booked breakfast, and I'm glad we did, as the selection available was fantastic, and set us up for long days exploring the city. On offer was toast, cereals, yoghurt, fruit salad, eggs, meats, cheese, bread rolls and jams, as well as coffee, fruit juices, and teas, so there really was something for everyone. The only issue was that because the hotel was so full, finding a free table to sit at was hard, so try to avoid going between 9-10am!
The hotel is very close to the Bülowstraße U-bahn stop, and you can get to all the major attractions in a matter of minutes, which makes the Aldea ideally situated for sightseeing. There are a lot of bars and food shops close by, although we didn't go to any of them, preferring to eat out at the Christmas markets, so I can't comment on their quality. I can say however, that unlike other reviewers, we didn't see a single prostitute in the area (maybe it was too cold?).
Oddly the room keys are attached to weights, and the hotel requires you to give them to reception if you go out, but it does stop you worrying about losing them. The reception is 24 hours, and are always happy to help, and they will even post any postcards for you. In the room there is also a list of additional available facilities, including wifi and a valuables safe, although we didn't use any of them.
All in all, this hotel is fantastic, and great value for money. I will definitely stay here again.
