We stayed here for a few days at the end of June and would rate it as just "ok." Compared to other European hotels in the same price range, it is somewhat newer and has modern furniture. But desperately needs air con. Our room was extremely warm as it was around 90F while we were there and just one small... More

This hotel is very unique in many respects - the most important one is, that this hotel is basically an NGO, so it's run by the neighboring church as a non-for-profit venture. 85% of the staff is from the "differently abled" sphere - so people, who are e.g. physically challenged and have otherwise difficulties to find a regular job.

Our walking group of eight English pensioners stopped here for a rest as we were weary from sightseeing on a hot day and needed refreshment. The hotel has a pavement bistro rather too close to traffic on Ackerstrasse and litter bins. It offers three outside tables best described as English pub garden style with bench seats attached either side of... More

Dear JohnHowardNorfolk, Thank you very much for taking your time to write a review of your visit in our Bistro. Please be aware that the place you have visited is not our hotel.

I arrived at this hotel around 10:30 AM after a very challenging trans-atlantic flight, a layover in Frankfurt and a delay in departing Frankfurt due to mechanical issues. Needless to say I was exhausted, but needed to be at a conference that already had started. Check-in however, starts officially at 2:00 pm. As I explained my situation the two lovely... More

Had a great time in the hotel - did even extend our stay because we loved it so much. Kids enjoyed the garden whilst parents preferred the views from the penthouse. European breakfast with varying offers and custom made pancakes/scrambled eggs or bacon. Kids are always welcome.

If this hotel is one thing, then that is unique. The concept is the integration of people with handicaps - so some of your staff will have difficulties speaking or other challenges. The enthusiasm these people display sets this hotel clearly apart from "normal" hotels: Everybody is just so proud to work here and is uber-friendly. It is really a... More

Very nice hotel very well located in Berlin. Nice clean and large rooms. They have a very good breakfast buffet. The staff is very helpful. Value for money. The menu of the restaurant is a bit limited.

Enjoyed the top level apartment (Room 601) with a walkout balcony with a wide view facing west. Both rooms had wall-to-wall panoramic windows that opened up. The bathroom is a wet room perfect for those needing a bit more accessibility in the shower - water pressure and temperature were excellent. Easy walks to the S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations as well...

We chose this hotel due to proximity to local sites. The Berlin Wall memorial is right next to the hotel, and the city center is an easy 15 minute walk. The main train station was an easy 7 minute tram ride, and the stop located right next to the hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Downside of hotel: concrete floors... More

Courteous staff. Spotless rooms. Perfect for basing family there for a weekend break. Only snag was the WiFi didn't seem to like android devices and kept disconnecting every few minutes. Allowed us to leave baggage in a secure room after 11am checkout. Would definitely stay there again.
