“Modern design, comfortable, near Gendarmemarkt”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

This was was 4th time at this hotel. I like the modern design, the comfortable rooms, the well-designed bathrooms, the free wifi, the good quality food at breakfast. It also has a nice sauna and steam bath and a fitness room (very small). Hausvogteiplatz Ubahn is 3 minutes away on foot. Gendarmemarkt is about five minutes away. You can also walk to Alexanderplatz and Museuminsel.

Nice and clean rooms. Very nice and helpful staff. The location of the hotel is very good a lot of bars and restaurants. Checkpoint Charlie not so far on foot. You will feel very welcome also in the bar of the hotel that you can find a good variety of cocktails and whiskies...

Very nice hotel in a perfect location. Rooms are large and have a small kitchen with a fridge so that you can cool down water and other drinks without using the minibar. A lot of good restaurants and shops in the neighborhood.

Went for a long weekend near Christmas. There were Christmas markets right outside our doorstep and the hotel is exactly where it says it is- the middle of Berlin!

Our flights were actually cancelled so we had a rough first day travelling to Hannover & then catching the train down to Berlin so we decided to stay an extra night which the hotel sorted out for us. They also upgraded us to a room with some sort of view (not too sure what the difference of this was to the room we booked tbh).

Room was nice, clean & comfortable. The bathroom was modern and clean too with maids cleaning the rooms daily.

Not much happening in the restaurant bar but you're just around the corner from plenty of other bars so it didn't really matter.

I have stayed to this hotel with a Globus group and the hotel is excellent. Rooms are large and well equipped. I like the modern design of the interiors and the kindness of the staff. Breakfast is very rich. The location is well, walking distance to Friedrichstrasse where there are many shops, bars and restaurants.

The Arcotel John F is a wonderful affordable hotel. It is well located --within walking distance to Museum Island and many of the sites in East Berlin. The hotel is immaculate, tastefully furnished and very modern. The staff is extremely friendly and eager to please. I highly recommend it.

Great location right next to Oranienburger Tor subway station and loads of restaurants nearby (including the wonderful Boulevard Friedrichstrasse; go out the main door and turn left at Friedrichstrasse). Short walk to Unter den Linden, the Deutsches Historisches Museum and Museum Island. The room was very clean, comfortable and well appointed, as well as quite modern. Great curtains kept the room dark. Very friendly front desk staff. Bring earplugs for the rooms at the front as the street is close but that's hard to avoid with such a central location and it's not a big problem. Ignore the 17 euro breakfast though, that's a rip off and it's not even in the same building. Try a cafe nearby instead, there are loads to choose from.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up or away from the street side to avoid noise at night, or brinbg ear plugs...
