Hotel room is clean and cosy with modern scandinavian design. Love the solid wood flooring in the room too. Try out the bar at the 3rd floor, nice ambience with good selection of snack.
Convenient location, just next to the train station.

Rooms are OK, hotel is nice and clean. Beds are comfortable and breakfast is good. There are no extra things in rooms or otherwise, but that is same for all hotels in the Scandic chain that I have stayed at.
We found the reception staff friendly enough and service-minded. But the bar staff where a bit on the curt side and the service late at night was VERY slow.

their policy sounds spurious to me, they claim they are eco-friendly and this is why there is no bottled water in the room, but at the same time there are rooms for smokers there. Smoking is more eco unfriendly than drinking from a recyclable bottle. And it stinks big time when you're forced to have a room like that.
This time with no rationale there are other necesary things missing: slippers, bathrobe (one must contact recepion) and ,that is prepostrous, the mini bar is EMPTY!
why the hell would I need a fridge in my room? I don't do grocery shopping when traveling on business, so if they want it to be empty, why do they have it at all? Another thing that annoyed me is that they charge for a dental kit.

Room Tip: Bring more stuff with you as you won't find slippers, bathrobe or even drinks in the room

First the good things. This hotel is nicely furnished and clean, rooms are fine and the beds are good. Breakfast is also not too bad. The concept is in line with the times, so no waste of paper (e.g. no hotel service directory) or amenities. The "smart keys" however de-magnetize every other day, so plan a lot of patience to go down to the reception to have it changed. You may want to have an ID with you, or lots of charm to convince the reception that you is you. The staff is not unfriendly, but clearly not trained, although one in paricular was very prompt and nice. It is the little things (printing something, airline points, wireless access setting) that seems to be a challenge. The place is almost conveniently located, but check the sorroundings. It looks like there is nothing in the area, but within 5 min. walk you have everything you may need. The hotel has a "shop" with sandwiches, drinks and other necessities, but really overpriced. Do not attempt to find the air-conditioner switch: everything is ("smartly") managed from the TV set. The rooms are quiet, but unfortunately you cannot avoid this background smell of sewer. The cost-performance is definitively OK.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel to attend a trade show. Getting to the hotel was easy by taxi. The touristy sights are very close to walk to (Brandenburg Tower etc), and several restaurant choices closeby. The train station next to the hotel was a big plus to get to the Messe Berlin and back for attending the trade fair.
In-room hotel amenities were pretty basic (a towel and coffee), and the check-in process took for ever. Others in the line for check-in before me too had issues with the speed and courteousness of the front-desk.
The breakfast spread was good. Wifi was free and it worked well.
So, overall, a fine location but not exactly customer-friendly with the range of amenities in the room and front-desk needs re-training.

This was a last minute change from my tour. I was really impressed by the friendly staff. It is in a great location and quiet. No noise from the street can be heard. This is a restful place. I recommend this hotel.

We stayed for 1 night. The hotel is decorated in nordic style, very clean, friendly staff and an overwelming breakfast was included. Perfect location. We will definately come back, when visiting Berlin again.
