We had a fantastic view looking over the street, down Orienburger stras. It was lovely just to watch the whole world go by out of the fantastic windows. This is an amazing location! We couldn't believe our luck when we arrived and there are about 10 restaraunts and cafes to choose from before you have even walked anywhere. You are in the middle of everything, yet far away enough for it to be peaceful. Museum Island is about 15 minute walk away, the market and Hackesche Hoff are 10 minutes away by walking. Friedstrass is 10 minutes away and is a main station for the underground, which means if you do want to see some of the sights that are a bit further away you can get the underground/ train there really easily. TV tower and Berlin Dungeons is about 30 minutes walk, which isn't that far because there are so many nice shops/cafes that you pass and can explore along the way to it that it is a thoroughly enjoyable walk.
The staff at the hotel were really helpful with giving directions to anywhere you are trying to find- giving you both verbal directions and showing you on the map and underground map if you need to get it. They always seemed really happy to help.
The room is clean, pleasant and very comfortable. The apple every day is really useful on a city break too! Quick apple to start the day right, so you don't feel too hungry in a morning and can have a good think about what your doing, breakfast doesn't have to be the first priority. We usually just got a pastry or yoghurt from Friedstrasse station as there is so much to choose from there. The yoghurt and smoothie stand was amazing. Le Crocbag was our favourite out of the bakeries!
