This is an excellent hotel for a short break in Berlin, and you couldn't do better. The location is great, close to all the forms of transport in Berlin and just a short walk to restaurants, Christmas markets, and the other historic sights you may wish to visit. We had a comfort room on the 8th floor which overlooked an inner courtyard and so was very quiet. Spotlessly clean, modern and bright, very comfy beds and toasty warm duvets. . Everything you could need if staying just 2 or 3 nights. Tea/coffee/kettle, television, safe, lovely bathroom with a decent hairdryer, and good shower. Underfloor heating in the bathroom was good too. Absolutely no complaints at all. Not a lot of storage but as I say for a short stay it was fine.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. Reception area looked lovely with Christmas decorations. Lifts were fast. We had breakfast on just one morning in the hotel, a buffet which was fine, but maybe at 15 euros a bit expensive. A better option was the Galeria Kaufhof - a large department store a few hundred yards away. Go up to the 5th floor and find the restaurant - buy your "buffet ticket" at the cash desk and away you go - whatever you want to eat, all for 9 euros, and its quality food. Hot, cold, cakes, fresh fruit, juice, tea, coffee, everything. It opens at 9.30am but not on Sunday, which is the same for other shops in Berlin, no Sunday opening.
Berlin is not a pretty city, quite grey and austere, with long, very wide straight roads, but the Christmas markets brightened everything up and had a great Christmassy feel. Mulled wine goes down a treat. The historic sites were interesting, so all in all its a good place for a short break.
