As many have said before, this hotel is in a great location. Only 400 meters away from the Potsdamer Platz, S-bahn station right next to the hotel and bigger station of Potsdamer Platz only a few minutes walk away, many bus lines stop near the hotel, about 20-25 minutes (less than 20 euros from 2 passengers) taxi ride from the Tegel airport.
Lobby was nice and clean but not excatly asking you to stay there for a awhile. Reception staff were really nice, friendly, willing to help you a lot and spoke good English. Check in and check out were fast.
We had a standard room, which was clean, modern & stylish and big enough for us. The mini bar was empty and that was great, since we had big bottles of water and other stuff to put in there. Closet was too small for two. Bathroom was quite spacious and very clean. Our room was cleaned every day and the cleaning staff were really nice. Always a "Guten morgen" with a friendly smile. Didn't like the sliding door of the bathroom, I do prefer regular bathroom doors. The hotel says it has A/C in every room but ours must have been broken. It was +30 and more outside and +26 in the room. Not that much sleep during the nights. We did tell about the hotness of our room, they promised to fix it but nothing seemed to change. Our room didn't have the luxury of so called french balcon, we had only a window, that didn't open all the way. Our room was very quiet.
We didn't have breakfast and didn't have a dinner there. Great places for breakfast, lunch and dinner near the hotel. Hotel bar had nice terrace and good drinks with nice staff.
I really liked this hotel and would have rated this 5 if the AC would have worked. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends.
