I stayed at the John F for a recent work conference. Rooms were comfortable and styling interesting even if there were a few quirks like the kitchenette facility within the room. Food was good, bar and public area service excellent. Conference facilities v good. Staff helpful and efficient. Gym small but good equipment. TV was adequate but not exceptional.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing outwards

Stayed from 1-4 October 2011 for my 40th Birthday. Location excellent in the Mitte district with all main sites nearby. Easily accesible by public transport from airport. Firstly all the staff both on reception and in the bar/restaurant were all so helpful and friendly/courteous. The rooms were equipped to a high standard. The breakfast buffet was excellent with wide variety of choice to suit most people. I was also surprised as on the day of my birthday when we got back to our room in the afternoon a birthday cake had been left with a greeting card from reception. This was totally unprompted and a really nice touch. I have been waitng to go to Berlin for years and the choice of hotel made the trip even more enjoyable. i cannot rate the hotel highly enough and would definitely stay again and would recommend this to anybody.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights during the Berlin marathon. Excellent location, very close to the Brandenburg Gate where the marathon starts and finishes. Rooms are spacious and have large windows. The view from my room was unforgettable: a small church right in front of me, the Berlin Cathedral and TV Tower in the distance. Very good bar and restaraunt downstairs. Extremely helpful staff! Altogether, most pleased with my stay here.

Stayed here over Easter. The hotel is on a quiet office street a short walk from Museum Island and close to the Metro and the sites. The rooms are modern. Mine was smallish as I was solo but my friends had a slightly bigger room with one of the rocking chairs that seem to be a theme for the hotel. Think this is a good choice for business or pleasure and it was cheap too. PS If you get a chance go to the Topography of Terror site (very moving) and the Pergamon Museum. The boat trip is also worth doing on a sunny day.

We were in town for the Berlin Marathon and wanted a hotel close to the race start/finish, that was of very good quality and would not kill our budget. This hotel fit on all counts. Only 1.6 km (ish) to the start of the race (near the Brandenburg Gate) and easy access to all other sites and shopping in 'Mitte'. Our room was spacious and the hotel facilities were very good (though we did not try the fitness centre this time around). Finally, the price was quite reasonable for a hotel of this quality and in this location on the marathon weekend.

If you are driving, just be aware there is no place off the street to unload - just pull up at the front door for check-in. Also, it might be best to let the hotel know that you are driving and that you would like a spot in their garage if possible. We did not but were still lucky to get the last spot (and they did park for us). There is however, a public parking garage nearby.

We did not have breakfast included in our package and opted on a couple mornings for the continental breakfast in the bar area. It was not fancy but the food and coffee were very good. Also the price was much better than the full breakfast in the main dining room.

Just to note that this was the second 'Arcotel' we have stayed in and the other was good too. If you are looking for good hotel while in Germany or Austria, give might want to give an Arcotel a try.

Stayed for 4 nights at the end of September, weather was lovely and we were able to walk everywhere. Check-in was smooth and all staff speak excellent english. Rooms are clean,modern and spacious, the free apples are a nice touch. Free toiletries are excellent quality and a massive walk-in shower is lovely.
Breakfst in the restaurant is a little chaotic, waitresses seem rushed and unorganised, perhaps someone directing guests to tables would help, All said choice of food was excellent and all fresh. Bar is lovely, relaxing and friendly with very knowledgable staff, good cocktails, and I loved the Berliner Weisse with Woodruff Syrup or Raspberry, so refreshing.
Alexander Platz within 15 minutes walk, checkpoint Charlie, 25 minute walk, the Topograph of Terrors is well worth a visit. Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp is a must, free entry and get the S1 U-Bahn from Frederichstrasse, 40 minutes ride, last stop on the line, €3 each way, and then a 20 minute walk to the camp, well worth it.
Can recommend the Bistro near Hotel, turn left and walk to corner of Genermarkt, about 7 minutes walk, cheap food & drink and very friendly.
Berlin is a lovely city and the people very welcoming.
