Quickest check in ever, yip. Are you this person...yes...sign here...here are your room keys. No information about hotel, hence the need to ask where to go for breakfast in the morning.

Breakfast for me was not that great. As a non egg eating veggie, there is not a great choice protein wise!

Rooms are OK, but not at all keen on the shade of yellow walls and blue/green trims around headboards etc. Hair dryer is not one that you can style hair with, so I recommend you take your own. Shower cap and hair ban supplied. Bathroom facilities and size good.

Payment of a euro required if you want to use the safe?

Tea, coffee and kettle supplied in room.

We had evening meal here, garlic soup was very nice. Found ordering frustrating as we have very basic German and the chef had no English. Food we found ok.

It is a bit of a trek in to town. Can catch a bus opposite hotel to a tube station, get that into centre. However if you go up past the hospital, there are better bus choices, that take you to the other end of town and a nice bus journey.

House keeping in room was good. View of car park from our room.

Just back from a three day trip from the hotel - the hotel has nice, spacy rooms at an attractive price. It is not in the center of Berlin - but with the bus and the U you will be fast in the city. the parking lot is not so expensive - but the breakfast is a little bit poor.
But we will stay there again

Room Tip: take the rooms to the parking-lot - there is it quiet

The hotel is clean, safe and the staff are friendly. decent spacious room
Location is a bit far from city center and the metro station is 10-15 mts walk thru a residential area which seemed quite safe even at night, there is a huge mall opp the metro stop with shops n restaurants
the bus stop to the airport is right opposite the hotel and not too far
Bathroom is clean as well and theres a free pc with internet in the lobby

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel, and agree with previous comments. The hotel is clean, bright and airy and all the staff are friendly.
There is everything available in your room making your stay comfortable (TV, Tea & Coffee, mini bar, complimentary slippers) and a safe. Although should you visit in the summer months(and it is hot) note: that there is no available air conditioning. Breakfast is available from 6am until 10am serving continental breakfast. As the weather was sunny for our stay, the walk to the nearest Ubahn (Johannisthaler Chaussee) is approx 15 minutes away which is not too bad in the morning, although seems a long way back when your feet ache having taken in the Berlin sights! There is a mexican restaurant next door to the hotel, and shops (Aldi), bars and restaurants in the locality, and should you be driving there is also a petrol station at the end of the road.All in all, a very pleasant stay, and would stay here again.

This Leonardo (there are more of them in Berlin) is small and friendly.
Location is quite far from city center (2 buses and a 50 minutes trip to get there).
Rooms are comfortable, but tere is no air condition unit at all !!
Bathroom is well equipped but soap/shampoo is only available through a multipurpose container attached to the wall. (housekeeping left it empty one day)
Beds are twins with a mattress on the soft side.
The neighbourhood is a quiet residential one, with mini-markets (Aldi) on both sides of the hotel, 300 meters away each.
Breakfast is nice and tasty, reception is welcoming and helpful.
There are no extra facilities such as swimming pool/gym, which makes me wonder how this hotel got 4 stars classification....

Room Tip: Front room s face the street (not tto busy one),Back rooms face the hotel's parking lot/"ga...

We booked this hotel as part of an Easyjet holiday package and chose it mainly for the price with the location being a secondary factor and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.
The hotel is located to the south of the city, at the edge of tube zone B. (The Berlin runs a 3 zone system for both tube and busses, A, B, C.) Getting to the hotel from the airport was very simple, we jumped on the 171 buss directly outside the airport doors and it took 20 mins to get to Zadesk Stasse - the buss stop/road junction of the hotel which is diagonally opposite the hotel.
The reception is clean, bright and airy and the reception staff are friendly, helpful and efficient and our room reflected the welcoming attitude – a light room, decorated in white, lemon and blue, with unexpected extras such as a mini bar at very reasonable prices (a bottle of coke for 2.50 euro or a beer for 3.50 euro, very good for mini-bar prices.) There were also complimentary slippers, bathroom products and arrival biscuits on the pillows. The bathroom was equipped with both a shower and bath and had a hairdryer, which was a little dated but powerful, and two sockets for a razor/hair straightness. There was also a very nice flat screen television in the bedroom which along with many German channels, also played BBC World News, CNN and MTV.
Breakfast is available for a generous amount of time, from 6am until 10am so no matter what your plans for the day, you can always have a full start. It’s a typical Continental breakfast, breads, fruits, meats, cheeses, teas, coffee, juices, yoghurt and cereals. It’s self service and you can have as much as you like. This was the only meal we had at the hotel, but dinner is also available.
As for location, there are a few alternative restaurants in the immediate area, but if you want bars and cocktails then I suggest jumping on the 171 buss right outside the hotel in the direction of the airport. After about 4 stops, you’ll reach the Rudow area which has a village atmosphere with a range of restaurants and bars available – you can walk there from the hotel in about 15 mins.
If you turn left out of the hotel and take the immediate left hand turn, you’ll be walking along Zadesk Stasse a pretty and very safe residential road. You’ll then cross a larger road and continue on Zadesk Stasse. When you reach the top of Zadesk Stasse you’ll be facing a large shopping centre, that has well know stores such as H&M, (be advised, this is not open for shopping on Sunday’s only for the tube and the cafes.) Here you can access the tube via the U7 line Johannisthaler Chaussee station and with just one change at the Mehringdamm stop to the U6 line, you can travel to the Friedrich Stasse (from here you can walk to the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Museum Island and the Holocaust Memorial in just 15 mins) station in the heart of Berlin – the whole tub trip taking just 15 mins.
Although the hotel is set away from the main city, it’s nice to have a quiet retreat to return to after a busy day sightseeing or shopping and with the tubs and busses running until 1am and plenty of taxis around, you can even stay out and party a while!

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a bay window.

I stayed in this hotel in the end of 2008, I will offer my review of this site but look at more recent reviews as it may have changed. The hotel itself is a little away from the metro station but not a too long walk - maybe 15 mins. The hotel is a best western so you can expect cleanness and other basic facilities, there is also a nice little restaurant within the hotel - but its not owned by the hotel. There was all the basic stuff i wanted - TV, en suite and bed was comfortable. The staff were helpful.
I would recommend this hotel, but for some people a more centrally located hotel would be better.
