“Enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

The location of this hotel is excellent. We walked most places we wanted to go. The construction going on in the area is somewhat of a distraction but didn't bother us as far as noise, etc.

The staff was very friendly, helpful, and gave us a lot of useful information. Room was nice and clean with free wifi. Some English channels on TV. Duvet on bed is short if you are tall. A/C worked better than most.

Breakfast was good and restocked regularly. Large selection of items available. Happy with our stay and would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel two nights in July 2014. The hotel is in a good location for independent travel around Berlin, close to a Metro station and within walking distance to many museum and other tourist attractions.

The hotel is decorated in a modern minimalist style. The staff were very friendly and most spoke English, at least enough to be helpful. We ate dinner in the dining room one evening and had an acceptable meal. All-in-all, I would put it on a par with 3-star hotels in the US.

We stayed here for our 3 nights in July. Very attractive hotel. Up to date modern with breakfast which had a good selection. The bar area and open seating in the lobby makes for a nice meeting place in the evening. Centrally located to get around Berlin. Walking distance to a lot of shops and food. English is spoken and the staff was friendly and helpful. They are doing construction across form the hotel but it was not a problem at all. No noise and we could sleep comfortably. I would have like the A/C to have been cooler but it seems you just lucky to get A/C in hotels in Germany period. And not just a fan. The A/C worked we just like to get it on the cooler side, had no problem sleeping. I would go back to this hotel. Has free wi/fi but as with other hotels it is slow.

Worth the stay. Arcotel John F is a pretty hotel at a quiet and convenience location. It cost about Euro 17 from TXL airport. Check in on the right hand side, left side is a bar, open area for continental breakfast (bread, ham, jam, juice, tea and coffee) for 7.5 euro or full hot breakfast for euro 22. Check in was fast and the staff was friendly. I need an access card to go up.

My room is a comfort room, standard size, big floor ceiling window facing to garden. The room and bathroom is clean. I like their shampoo, shower gel (you can purchase them online) and the bathroom has red heat light. The bed is comfortable and the sheet is soft. If you travelling from overseas, you need to bring your own power adopter. Internet connection is good. Sound proof is good inside the room.

The surrounding area is safe at night.

Overall it's a pretty nice hotel and i would recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Arcotel John F for 3 nights in July prior to embarking on a 2-week Baltic cruise. Neither of us had been to Berlin before. We arrived via the TXL bus from Tegel. I was very impressed by the ongoing construction at the Unter den Linden just a block from the hotel and we had to take a circuitous route to walk the 1 block from the bus stop to the hotel. The room at the hotel was very nice and clean with good amenities. The wifi, while free, was laborious to connect with and not the most reliable. Besides construction, which is omnipresent in former East Berlin, the location was excellent and we did not use any public transportation during the stay until we departed for the cruise. Berlin was in a heat wave during our stay and daily temperatures were easily in the 90s. Room air-conditioning was excellent and we were able to sleep well despite the unusual heat. Our room had a nice view of the park at the rear of the hotel. When I return to Berlin, I would not hesitate to stay at the Arcotel John F again. It will be terrific when area construction is completed.

The ubication is really good. It has a very good breakfast and it is really clean. But i have to say that the service wasnt so good and the staff were not friendly and didnot want to help us. We asked them to print something for us and they answered that we should help ourselves with the printer.

Dear guests,
Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at the ARCOTEL John F. We are glad to hear that you liked the hotel. Unfortunately you were not happy with our service and the friendliness of our staff. We are sure that the problem with your wish to print something was merely a misunderstanding, as we do point out to our guests that we do have a business corner with four computers and a printer, which are free of charge and accessible for all guests. As we constantly try to achieve maximum guest satisfaction we would be very grateful, if you could contact us again. So we could find out, what you disliked and where we could improve. Thank you for your help. It would be nice, if we could be welcoming you again in the near future.

Yours kindly,

The team of the ARCOTEL John F

Great staff indicates good management! Good location. Enjoyed the JFK rocking chairs and Jackie O shaped lampshades. The excercise room has nice views and the hotel's saunas are good. The breakfasts are very good.
