This hotel is well located in the Mitte district of Berlin with a U Bahn station outside the front door. You probably will need to use it as the surrounding area is a bit soulless in the day and dead at night. Even the beautiful Gendemarkt doesnt really have much going on for a central square.
None of that is of course the fault of the hotel. This is a big, comfy very corporate and business orientated hotel - dont expect the personal touch.
My room was an "Executive plus" - nice enough but ever so slightly disappointing both in size and decoration - would expect a little more from the best rooms in the house. WIFI was a staggering 24 Euro and the mini bar prices eyewatering (presumably why the hotel thought it needed to hold 200Euro on my credit card for 2 nights..despite the room already been paid for!)
Didn't eat in the hotel but the restaurant looked a little dull and expensive (and Berlin is NOT an expensive place to eat out) There is just one bar and whilst expensive, was nicely appointed and got very busy in the evening with German business types on courses and seminars etc.
So far, so mediocre...but what nudged this review into 4* territory was the access to the Club room that comes with Executive room access - this salon had a fantastic free breakfast - rivalling many hotels paid for options and at night the drinks chiller was opened for wine, beer, Sekt and some really quality canapes - honestly there was enough for a full meal. Many people seemed to be making a night of it in there! It saved us a LOT of money over 2 days in Berlin.
This hotel isnt going to set the world alight for you but neither is it going to let you down - without the Executive Club upgrade I would struggle to recommend, but if you can stretch to it then - DEFINATELY
