The location of the Miniloft was perfect - close to all forms of transport, U and S Bahns, Hauptbanhof, not far from Tegel etc. The Classic Room I stayed in is excellent and really spacious and I found it private, secure and quiet - they give you the key and leave you alone. Great little kitchennette and bathroom plus a huge dining table, good for eating and to set out work, and great heating (visited in December during a very cold snap!). A bonus to have free wi-fi and cheap laundry facilities in the basement. It's not the most glamorous location in Berlin but I could get to any tourist destination I wanted within 15-30mins and there are plenty of food options nearby including 2 supermarkets. I'd stay there again definitely, and the only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars was the little old box TV which didn't reflect the contemporary design of the room and the relatively hard bed (though I believe you can ask for extra mattress padding!).
