“Good place to stay either tourist or business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Mine was a business trip but I wanted to tag on a bit of sight-seeing and this hotel was a great choice. The hotel is only half an hour by train from the important Siemensstadt business area and as other reviewers have said puts you within easy walking distance of many famous Berlin sights.

The hotel is easy to get to by public transport and there are shops (big Lidl supermarket round the corner) and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. I found the reception to be friendly and efficient also my room was clean and comfortable.

I was wondering about the "capsule bathroom" referenced by earlier reviewers but yes they are correct the bathroom is lovely! It cleverly saves space in the room area and looks as though pre-fabricated and built onsite as one piece. Really very nice and it crossed my mind how handy it would be to have one of these at home I liked it so much. Only slight downside was a strange smell from the sink drain but that was likely a one off somehow as nobody else has mentioned it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Stayed here over 5 nights in mid February 2014. Overall a very good hotel to stay at.

It is a typical IBIS Very clean, neat and tidy. All space is utilized well. We called the bathroom the "capsule" as it is so compact and with that step up it feels like you were walking into a space capsule although it was quite roomy when you got in there.

Breakfast was good.

While I was attending Berlinale, Hubby was able to walk to most of the major sites to play tourist (about 6 good sized city blocks to the Holocaust Memorial for example).

Would definitely stay here next time I am in Berlin.

If you dont know Berlin the location looks a bit 'isolated' but couldn't be further from the truth. 10 mins walk from Checkpoint Charlie; 10 mins from Potsdammer Platz; 15 mins from Brandenburg Gate. Great transport links to everywhere especially the 'New Airport' and Messe Berlin. The history of the area is not immediately obvious, but for WW2 buffs it is a treasure chest! Hotrl is great. Simple but comfy, nice staff, decent breakfast and good food if your feet hurt too much to go out. Good value too. Highly recommend this hotel and the location.
