I stayed here for 3 nights. Room was clean and had a good view. Shower and toilet arrangement was a little different but you get used to it. Staff were friendly and welcoming. There are many restaurants, coffee shops and bars nearby and there is a tram stop right outside the hotel and a u-bahn stop round the corner so... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in June with my boyfriend and could not have been more pleased. Staff were welcoming and friendly and the room was excellent- much bigger than we thought which was nice. We stayed in the cheapest double room but were more than happy with the space and what it offered. The breakfast looked lovely each... More

Great location, very near a number of different transport options, restaurants, bars... Helpful staff. No breakfast (unless you pay extra). Decor is very modest but stylish. Everything very clean. Choosing a room on 5th floor or above would be quieter as it is on the main street.

We stayed here for 7 nights last week and I can't recommend it enough. We got an excellent advance deal with Expedia, and though I don't have a breakdown of the cost we paid just £540 for a pair of return flights (from Gatwick) and 7 nights in this hotel, so it was definitely good value for money.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
