We booked a double room at the hotel for 7 nights.
House keeping was daily, so the room was kept very clean and any necessary towel changes were done efficiently.
For a double room for 7 nights, we paid £143.01. There was a promotion on at the time, so we got really good value.
We read that the charge for Breakfast was 10 euro's before arriving, so opted for nearby cafe's instead. There are plenty of cafe's, restaurants and bakeries within walking distance of the hotel. We ate out at some of the local restaurants some evenings.
For a main course plus drink in a nearby restaurant, you can expect to pay around 20 euro's. There are cheaper options such as going to a local take away or even going to the Kaufland shop which is just across the road from the hotel. In particular one restaurant, Doreedo's, was particularly cheap: I got a main course plus drink for 4 euro's! Surprisingly, it was good, so it tends to be busy!
The staff at reception are very friendly. Whenever we asked a question we always got a helpful answer.
The hotel is intended to be close to Tegel airport, which is where keeping my review relevant gets interesting: the closure of Tegel airport is planned shortly before the opening of Berlin Brandenburg.
We arrived at Berlin Schoenefeld, which is located where Berlin Brandenburg airport intends to open in 2013.
Travelling from Berlin Brandenburg or Berlin Schoenefeld wasn't a problem: we got to and from the hotel on the trains with a couple of changes, arriving at Kurt-Schumacher-Platz U-Bahn station as our last stop. We used BVG's journey planner which was really helpful for organising transfers to and from the airport. If you are an English speaker, you can access the English version of the website to make things easier.
Travel time from Schoenefeld airport to the hotel was just over 1 hour and 10 minutes on a Sunday evening, including walking time. The train station at the airport is about 6 minutes walk from the terminal building. It's well signed within the airport so we found it easy to get to.
You will probably only need one ticket covering Zones A, B and C. This costs 3 euro's to get to the hotel, with the ticket being valid for 2 hours from when you validate your ticket. One of the travel guides indicated that a taxi from Schoenefeld to the Berlin's central train Station (the Berlin Haptbahnhof) would be around 30 euro's. The Berlin Haptbahnhof is still quite a long way from the hotel, so getting a taxi would be an expensive option for that distance.
Although the hotel is outside the main centre, the location was good for getting around the city: Kurt-Schumacher-Platz is a very handy U-Bahn (underground) station, which is only a short walk from the hotel. We got 7-day tickets and used the U-Bahn every day. The trains were always on time or early, and always got us to within a short walk of where we were travelling to, even though we visited different areas of Berlin nearly every day!
The hotel was nice and quiet, as it's tucked away slightly from the main street. The only noise you commonly get is from the planes flying to Tegel, if you have the windows open.
The hotel was well located for our holiday in Berlin. I'd happily stay again.
