This is a great hotel in a perfect location. A few minutes' walk from the museums and a busy street with restaurants, stores, etc. Free WiFi which was a decent speed for a hotel. Clean rooms with funky designs. Restaurant a bit expensive. Staff are friendly and helpful. Felt safe as a solo female traveller. Room service was speedy. Room had a large safe which easily accommodated my laptop, etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Really enjoyed our stay here. It is well situated and you can walk to many of the sights from here. The room decor was fabulous, with colour changing lights in the bathroom for added ambience! Large TV with satellite channels, nice toiletries and tea coffee etc. The mini bar was expensive, but what's new. The staff were efficient (not overly friendly). The bed gets the thumbs up!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view facing outward on the road if you want to see something and not into the...

Nice modern hotel, great location near unter den linden, ubahn and museuminsel. We did not have breakfast in this hotel, but in café dresssler on unter den linden. We also did not use the restaurant or bar in the hotel. Plenty good restaurants on walking distance.

The Arcotel is new, with modern decor, including small and nice gym and sauna complex accesable free for all guests.
Room price includes full and filling buffet breakfast.
The Hotel is located in a business area, but less than 500 meters from the museum island, less than 300 meters from the Untre the Linden main street where the main bus lines (e.g. 100 and 200) run and less than 300 meters from a U station.
The staff were very friendly efficient and helpfull.
What more can you expect from a hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a high floor room facing the Freidrich Kirche (from where Museum Island and TV tower can...

This hotel is a little gem! Location is perfect, just 2 mins walk to the tube stop. Beautiful view, comfy beds, would stay again without hesitation.

Our stay at the Arcotel John F was simply wonderful. From the moment we arrived the staff at reception could not have been more helpful. They even sent a complimentary birthday cake up to our room when they realised it was my Mum's birthday. Our room was very spacious and overlooked a quiet square at the back of the hotel. The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from some of Berlin's main attractions, including the main cathedral. Checkpoint Charlie is only a 15-20 minute walk away along a fantastic shopping street. Strongly recommend this hotel.
