While on a business trip, I consciously chose this hotel knowing it was not a business hotel. However, I still wanted to try, as it is well-rated and it's very unique. The atmosphere is very lively and young and the entire experience is very different from most of the hotels I stayed in. I opted for a "loft room". As Berlin's old buildings usually have ceilings of 4 meters or more, the room is vertically separated in two by a wooden structure. The bed (basically a mattress) on the top (quite close to the ceiling - might not be good for claustrophobics) and the rest below.
The plus. You feel like in a mini-apartment that creates a kind of interesting relaxed ambiance.
The minus: all the rest. Need to use the bathroom during the night ? You have to be truly careful not to kill yourself as the wooden stair is really (really) steep. Wanna watch TV (small) with your girlfriend ? Very hard to do so while laying in bed, as it is downstairs. Want to open or close the window ? You literally have to climb on the desk or the "sofa". I could clearly spot the foot of one of the housekeepers on the sofa. Wanna spend some time working / blogging ? You have to sit on a mini-chair, the desk being low.
Also my shower was miserably inefficient. No water pressure (unacceptably low) and the shower head was badly fixed on the wall. I obviously asked this to be fixed... "Yes, sir". Nothing happened until
Good breakfast in a nice large cosy room.
Hope this helps
