The Park Inn hotel is new and is proud of it's "ultra-modern" decor. It was a cross between a 1960's James Bond movie and the Jetsons. Glass doors in the bathrooms, weird furniture. I didn't really like it.
I had to stay in a junior suite because there is not enough space in a regular room for children. This size of room was very large and could sleep 4 and still have room to move around.
This room provided us with bathrobes and slippers. But there was no hot water pot, no coffee, no tea, nothing. Only a very small and expensive mini-bar.
The breakfast is a typical European buffett. Nothing special in the slightest and I was not impressed, given the price tag of 17 Euros per adult. But what they had was good.
The hotel talks a lot about the view from the roof top bar. But they don't mention that it costs 3 Euros to enter.
Parking was built into the building and costs another 17 Euros per day. It was secure and well lit, but there was no elevator in the parking garage and if you decided to move your bags from the car to the lobby it was quite a task. Dropping off the bags at the front door was difficult because of the construction taking place on the street right out front of the hotel.
What this hotel does have going for it is the location. You can walk to most popular sites within 15 minutes, or get on a bus, tram, or elevated train with only a 5 minute walk. The Alexander Platz station has many places to eat that are far cheaper than the hotel and if you are willing to walk even 10 minutes you can find many nice places.
This hotel is simply a factory built to receive bus tours into Berlin and process them out as quickly as possible with no German charm at all.
It is very expensive for what you get and if I had not been coming here on business and then staying longer I would have stayed somewhere else. But if you do stay here, you will get clean and comfortable rooms with a great location. That is at least worth something.
