The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, not large, but adequate for two. The location in Mitte section of Berlin makes it a perfect base for visiting the city. Anything that is too far to walk can be reached by U-bahn or S-bahn trains, and there is a station right at the corner. A day pass to the transportation system... More

Whilst not being cheap, the rooms here are clean, tidy, great views, even better location, well laid out and very comfortable. Some great places to eat food locally such as dada falafel and an amazing breakfast buffet in an old pharmacy both on the same street. Staff were friendly, patient and kind and would stay here again no problem!

Modern, clean hotel right in the centre of Mitte, Berlin. We didn't have to use public transport once! There was no hot water on our first night which was a bit inconvenient but overall a great stay!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
