Me and my good friend Nina spent a weekend in Berlin to see the great show at Friedrichsatdtpalast.
We found the nice Hotel from John F on Booking.com and we decided to book because of the great central area of Berlin Mitte.
The Hotel turned out to be greta as well. The rooms were big and we asked for rooms to the back side and it was very quite.
Very new - light design - yes perfect comfortable for a good price. And the service at the reception was also very nice and professional!!!
We will come back!!!!

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor to the back side. For example 634 or 630

This is a comfortable, quiet, modern hotel with efficient staff, free WI-FI, and great breakfast, perfectly located in the heart of Berlin, ideal for sightseeing and shopping. The spa is minimalist but for such a rate you can't really expect to find a swimming pool. The only criticism: kitchen and room service close at 11 pm, so if you come back hungry from a late show, you'd better seek another restaurant in town.

Room Tip: If you like good views, pick a room facing the Opera House (under renovation now); if you prefer calm, choose one facing the Foreign Ministry.

This hotel is located quite centrally for most sights. The staff were super helpful. The breakfast had a ver good spread> And this was all despite the hotel being very busy> They managed to keep the standrads high.

The rooms have sufficeint space. The decor is nice. they are kept clean.

This hotel goes to show that you do not have to have lifts made of gold to be a 5 star hotel. Having classy decor and above all good service is what really counts.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking outwards and not toward the courtyard.

This has been one of the best places I have stayed in Europe. The entire hotel was clean and every staff member was professional and personable. Its location to the main tourist sights could not have been better, especially the Christmas Markets. And the hotel did one of the nicest and thoughtful acts I can think of. On Christmas morning each door had a small bag of chocolates and candies which was simply a wonderful surprise and something way above any expectations. I very much am looking forward to returning.

I can not say how much a perfect location this hotel is in!!! U walk out the doors of the very attractive looking hotel and go straight across the street to museum island or go to you left to get to the very fancy area of berlin with lovely restaurants or option to turn right to walk towards the TV tower which is directly across for the train station!!! We ate once in the hotel and regret that we hadn't ate there before after eating in some awful places!! The food and drink is nice!! the guy behind the bar whos name i dont know suggested drinks to us and was very nice and friendly and is one of few staff we talked to as we tried spend as little time in the hotel as we were only there for 3 days but would spend more time there if we had the option!! Rooms and clean and beds comfortable passed out every night from sooooo much walking and sight seeing!!! It says check in at three but we arrived at about 1 and our room was ready which we were delighted!! We were in the room facing the offices but as I said before we went to see berlin from the streets not from our room view!! Hotel is great value for money and im sure has much more to offer than we got to see in the little time we were there!! around 350€ for two people for three nights will do breakfast included when we visit again!!
