Stayed here for a Euro backpack in November 2012.
Location: Excellent. Is 2 minutes away the metro. Stop: Uhlandstr, it is however the last stop/ at the end of U1 line (Green line). But still, as I've mentioned in my other reviews, it is convenient having a metro stop close to your accommodation. Personally, I think the area is posh. The shops/ boutiques around were top brands. The presence of McDonalds and Starbucks made me feel human though.
Room: I booked for a single room. If my room was indeed single, let me say it was huge for a single. I had a double size bed, soft and comfy. Decent sized wardrobe. TV with BBC...in English, thank goodness for that! Heating=check. The room itself was a bit worn off, few marks on the wall. And the toilet, which is one of the most important bit for me when looking for a place to stay, was creepy! I The bowl was old-style, weird. Towels provided as well as shampoo/conditioner and hair blower. Hot water=check. But as soon as i turned on the shower there was a creepy noise, I think it was the boiler. It was just all in all a not-so-pleasant shower. But don't be put off, it's just my paranoia.
Hotel and Staff: I've been referring to the place as a hotel when indeed it was a bed and breakfast more like. Hm..well, it has a reception room, but nobody (staff) stays in overnight. I was given key for the front door and my room. It was located in a pretty tired building. There was sign outside that says HOTEL. There was a water machine. Breakfast was served at 8am which included tasty bread (smelled and tasted as if it was past the date), buns, ham, tomatoes, cucumber, cheese slices, hard boiled eggs, spreads, yohgurts, cereals, milk, tea, coffee, juice. There was a balcony from the breakfast room if guests want to have a fag. The lady who sorts out breakfast doesn't speak English, the receptionist yes, but just a little. They were all approachable.
In a nut shell, my stay was just fine. Nothing intolerable, nothing extraordinary. And yes, I would stay there again.
