I always start with this preface: I travel for work and am on the road over 250 days a year. I stay in over 150 different hotels each year, from big chains to boutiques and everything in between. I have a good baseline and realistic expectations when it comes to hotels. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in March 2013.
First, the pros:
Clean, reasonably quiet, very helpful staff and good breakfast.
This is NOT @ postdamer platz. It's a solid 10 minute walk there, or anywhere for that fact. The rooms are small and not very functional. The beds are awful and I woke each morning in pain. One of the biggest complaints is the free internet. It is AWFUL. It is SO slow, it took almost an hour to download on e-mail. It's completely useless. I need internet for work, and this was a work trip. There is an option to purchase "high speed" internet, but you have to do it first when you sign on, otherwise suffer with the slow internet for 24 hours! There is not a real bar, restaurant or mini bar here. Very basic.
The hotel staff made up for the shortfalls of the hotel. My trip was tainted because the weather was awful during our stay and that made the 10-20 minutes of walking to get to anything pretty miserable. I was anxiously awaiting my departure. I would NOT stay at this hotel again. There are much better options in better areas for the same price.
