Stayed over a weekend and for a conference. Only ate breakfast in the hotel, did not try restaurant. Breakfast was plentiful and even had some soy milk. There was an extra cost for breakfast, but no one ever checked at the entrance. Beds were a little odd with this mattress pad on top, but it was surprisingly comfortable. Room could get quite stuff or freezing cold - all was to be controlled by your tv, but it didn't seem to work all that well and the temp range was only 19-23 - not cold enough at night. You could open the window into this inner courtyard, which was a saving grave for the stuffiness, but then could get quite cold. I find these inner courtyard european hotels make me feel like a bit of a mole and removed from the days' weather. Bit of trouble with wifi during the conference - but most hotels don't seem to get that when you have a tech conference in, the wifi will never be adequate for those that bring 2-3 devices with them (guilty). Great location for sightseeing and and getting public transport. A couple of grocery stores nearby to gather basics as needed (Lindl behind) and another one in the mall (Arkade). Biggest downer - front desk staff was painfully slow. Would I stay again? Maybe - decent price for location, but I would definitely look around.

Very good situation, near to the center of Berlin. Nice people and good service. Spa just near the hotel (with a direct access). So happy to have a break after a fully work day!Comfortable but perhaps too 'cold'... Good breakfast with a full choice.

The gotel is verry well placed, there are a lot of places to eat (aprox, 500m) and a lot of transport links (aprox, 500m).
The accomodation was nice but for a 4 stars hotel I did expected to have tea, coffe ad hot watter in the room. In Berlin rains all the time :).
I do recomend this hotel only for business trip.

Stayed here on business recently and found the Hotel to be very comfortable. The room was a little warm and i was unable to adjust the temperature through the TV (which i complained about) but other colleagues stated the same.The gym, food and business facilities were all very good and the location was great for a daily commute on the UBahn. Staff were very friendly and the bar staff were very accomodating with specialist dietry requirements for a a colleague. It almost felt like i was here on holiday when i wasnt working so i think that is a job well done.

Room Tip: Make sure you can alter the room temperature through the TV before taking the room.

Clean, efficient, good location. Rooms are lovely with free wifi that works well. Not much of a walk to local attractions. Recommend. Subway very close by and bus tours go from the top of the road. Ten mins walk to the Berlin Wall. Try the helium balloon near checkpoint Charlie.

Stayed in this hotel for 8 days with my partner. We booked the room through top secret hotels on lastminute and got an excellent price for it so it was excellent value for money. The room was clean, well designed and comfortable. The buffet style breakfast had a huge variety to choose from and was all fresh and high quality. The staff in the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. The only issue we found was room control/temperature, we had to leave the windows open at night as we could not sleep due to the room being too stuffy. The hotel location is very good as it is a five minute walk to Potsdamer Platz and it is less than a minute walk to the nearest metro station. Overall we had a very positive stay here and would certainly recommend it if you can get it at a good price.

The hotel is very good for the price. Location is great - you can walk pretty much everywhere in west Berlin - Sony center, Potszdamer Platz, Bredenburg gates, even to Kurfürstendamm area. The room was clean, very modern - scandinavian style. The staff was helpful - gave us the map and spoted the places where to eat, do the clubbing, shopping and etc. I would recommend this hotel for the short stay.
