Fantastically located 'hetero-friendly' hotel in the heart of Schoneberg at a decent price. Within a 2 minute walk to the famous KaDeWe department store and Wittenbergplatz. Paid a greatly reduced rate for a 3-night stay in April 2013.
Efficient and fast check in, friendly staff at both reception and at the attached Hamburger Mary's restaurant, from the popular California chain... was given a complimentary drink upon arrival!
The rooms feel very well used and in need of refurbishment and paint. The shared balcony was covered with cigarette butts and bits of trash. Fresh toiletries, linens and abundant towels were provided daily, but the room itself felt dusty and dated. The curtains need to be washed.
The hotel's rooftop spa including wet and dry sauna and outdoor jacuzzi are very clean and well worth a visit, although the gym area appears neglected and under-used for a gay hotel... I think this space could be a real bonus for guests if properly laid out.
