This hotel is not air conditioned. The hotel was advertised as air conditioned, and we selected the hotel for this reason. Upon arrival, however, we switched on the air conditioning only to find out it was turned off in the entire hotel because according to the front desk, the hotel is only air conditioned when the outside temperature reaches 20C (the temperature was in fact above 20C). Additionally, the window only opens a few centimeters and was unable to provide adequate ventilation throughout the night. If that wasn't enough, the constant street noise, including buses and motorcycles made it hard to sleep. I immediately requested a room change to face the back of the hotel upon learning of the air conditioning problem. The hotel, however, refused to change our room until the next day. There is no excuse falsely advertising that the room was air conditioned, and no justification for turning on the air conditioning for only a short period each day.
On the positive side, there are a number of reasonably priced restaurants in the area, including a 3.90 all you can eat breakfast buffet on Stresemannstraße across from the Holiday Inn Express. You can't miss the banner hanging from the window. http://www.wirtshaus-hasenheide.de/fruehstueck_en.htm. Also, the Anhalter S Bahn is also conveniently located less than a block away from the hotel.
