“Value for money.. Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

There are good and bad things about this place.
Good Things: Next to U Bahn, Price, Helpful front desk, Spacious room, nice bed, close to some good restaurants and grocery stores. There is paid b/f, in case you need it.

Bad things: The front desk is not 24 hrs, hence if you plan to check in late, you have to go to sister hotel down the street to pick up the keys, which can be a hassle if you are new to the city.
Also, if you have to drive/walk down the street (Bulow), there are too many hookers on the street that try to stop your car. Paid parking, that too not many spots. NO AC in rooms and that can be an issue on some days.

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July this hotel is in a great location for exploring Berlin, it is right next to Bulowstrasse U-Bahn station which is about 10 minutes for Brandenburg Gate and 20 from Alexanderplatz.

The rooms itself was fine, big and clean and for a very affordable price, the only thing is there is no air-conditioning so it can get very hot at night. Would quite happily stay here again if the next time I am in Berlin.

Located just opposite the U2 station (direct access to main city centre attractions). Surprisingly quiet despite being on the major crossing. We have been 3 persons but got double room with extra bed which was not what we paid for. Anyway we spent most of the time outside. Breakfast very poor but maybe that's kind of the German standard. Better to go outside and get nice coffee and cake (there is a small bar opposite). Our door locker was not working properly - one day the door was not shut down after the cleaning service. The windows need to be covered otherwise you have the feeling that you share the room with your neighbours. Air condition ok but for this weather (above 30 degrees) maybe a little bit to weak.

We were a group of 4 individuals looking to do Berlin on the cheap. We found this hotel online and wondered what would be the flaw as it was so cheap (£54 a night for all of us - less than £15 a night each!), but there really wasn't one. We stayed on the top floor near the sauna, and had a huge, modern room with really high ceilings, a balcony and a little kitchenette, all of which astounded us considering the price. There was one double bed and two day beds, all of which were comfortable. It was really clean and the shower was amazing. Although the local area isn't the busiest in Berlin and we had to walk for a fair while to find a restaurant, there are convenience stores and the U-Bahn station Bülowstraße was literally right next to the hotel - which meant that we had easy access to all the main sites of Berlin (around 10 minutes each way). Reception have maps and loads of discount cards for attractions around Berlin, which we used a lot. The only negative we could say was that the hob in the kitchenette didn't work, and there was no cutlery or kitchen equipment (apart from a hob-operated kettle), but this was solved by buying mugs and plastic cutlery from the aforementioned shop. Overall I'd really strongly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Berlin!

The hotel is literally opposite the Bulowstrasse S station. Staff were very helpful with directions etc. Could leave case behind reception desk on last day ( no fee). Room was clean and comfortable. Would point out that the shower is about 18 inches off the floor with no hand rail to help access. There is no air con, so if you have to open the windows there is a lot of trafic noise, however once the windows are closed, there is no problem. Easy to find way around, public transport very good, especially as hotel next to S line and only a 5 minute walk to a U station.

Ok hotel. Nice spacy rooms, quiet and afforable. Offers breakfast, but we didn't have any. No reception at night. A bit off the beaten track, but u-bahn right outside the door.
