We stayed in this hotel for five days over New Year, 28th December 2012 to 2nd January 2013.
Location: Less than 5 minutes walk to either of 2 U-Bahn, Nollerndorfplatz or Wittemburgerplatz. Ten minutes walk to the Kurfurstendamm and great shopping. Fifteen minutes walk to the Tiergarten or Zoo. Perfect location for the gay district, with plenty of bars and restaurants.
Rooms: Very clean and comfortable, but very small; just enough room to walk around the bed. Beds are very comfortable. Free wi-fi available but only one person in the room can use it at a time. Cable TV, but the only channels available in English were BBC World News or CNN; no entertainment channels in English. Very good bathroom (wetroom).
Breakfast: Available 7.00 to 11.00 a.m. which is great, and they keep on replenishing right up till 10.45 a.m. Usual German breakfast: 4 different hams, 4 different cheeses, boiled eggs, crudites, different rolls and breads, yoghurts, cereals, limited hot dishes: 2 per day ranging from ratatouille, scrambled eggs, small sausages or bacon, fried eggs on request, non-stop coffee and orange juice, very little in the way of fruit.
Staff: Absolutely fantastic, without exception, including reception staff, night porters, breakfast staff and cleaners; always friendly, polite and helpful.
Comfortable bar area.
Would recommend this hotel as a clean, comfortable, good-value budget hotel in a good location.
