The hotel is aimed more at the business person and the prices reflect that in the minibar and room service costs, however if you can get the room on a cheaper rate (we used Expedia and got it for £40 per night) then I would fully recommend!
The hotel staff spoke excellent English and we had no problems with communication. We were checked in quickly.
The room was spotless and what you would expect for a 4* - The Tv was huge, the bathroom was clean and modern and the bed was great!
Location - It is a short walk from Alexanderplatz but if your'e dragging luggage around with you it may be better to hop on the M4 tram at Alexanderplatz heading in the direction of Falkenberg and get off at 'Am Friedrichshain' which is 3 or 4 stops on.
You will see the hotel from there but if you don't, it is next to the large church!
People have said that the church bells are loud and can wake you up - Our room was overlooking the church and the bells didn't seem to start until 8am ish and even then they were not that loud...
There are not many shops near the hotel so I suggest you pick up any drinks and snacks from the shops at Alexanderplatz and bring them back...
There are a few restaurants near by, we used 'Las Malvinas' which is a Steakhouse around the corner. The food was great, cheap and the staff spoke excellent English and even had English menu's!
I would definitely return to the hotel if I am in Berlin again but only if I got it at a cheap rate. I would not pay business rates as a tourist.
