“If you need an Internet connection don't bother”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Otherwise quite ok hotel, but if you need an Internet connection in your room then you should skip this hotel. There were three of us staying in this hotel, and the internet connection in all of our rooms were practically unusable.

Breakfast was a little simple compared to average hotel, although they had quite nice tea assortment.

The Hotel Alexander is conveniently situated in Mitte Berlin, close to Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt for the U and S Bahns, and also Tram stations bus stops, making all of Berlin accessible. It is also walking distance from a number of tourist attractions such as Museum Island and the TV Tower.

The hotel itself is clean and tidy and the room was comfortable enough for our four night stay.

Breakfast is a good buffet, with an assortment of hot and cold dishes. The only comment I have about breakfast is that there does not seem to be enough tables for all the guests, so on a couple of mornings we had to wait some time to get seated.

There is a bar area within the hotel, which was OK for a pre-dinner or apres dinner drink before bed. Not much atmosphere though.

The hotel also has a small relaxation area with treadmill, cross trainer, yoga mats, sauna and jacuzzi.

All in all, an adequate hotel with a good location. If I was visting Berlin again (which I probably will) I would not hesitate to book here again.

My wife and I decided to visit “Athens by the river Spree” which is Berlin, Germany for our wedding anniversary. First we’ve had to secure a nice, centrally located place to stay. The internet showed us the “Alexander Plaza Hotel” on Alexander Platz. Well, the hotel has being there since the 1800’s, they say. Even so there are still some things not worked out finely. I.e. Since we arrived well before 3 pm, which is their set time to enter the room and 11 am to leave it, which means they sell you 20 hours of stay instead of one full day when cleaning the room takes the room service just under 10 minutes -we were there one day-, we left our bag and laptop with the reception. When we arrived later, the reception had given my laptop to someone else. “Oooops, our mistake!” they said, and they sent a kid to fetch it for us. Then, there are plenty of body lotion little bottles in the bathroom but no shampoo whatsoever, like only balding guests with dry skin problems should book with the hotel. On the second day the free wi-fi internet went dead. When I called the reception they checked the system and said, “Oooops, our mistake!” So they reactivated it. And the last morning, when we arrived at the restaurant anticipating a hearty meal to start our final day in Berlin strong, the girl at the door said in a voice and army tone that reminded of the Seinfeld’s soup-kitchen guy, “NO breakfast for you today!” We were taken aback and then made a U-turn heading to the reception, again. Again the reception checked the system and said “Oooops, our mistake!” and then they …allowed us to eat breakfast. I had started enjoying this “Oooops…” thing, but unfortunately we had to leave both the city and the hotel and come back to reality. Other than these minor details the hotel was nice, comfy and clean. Guess what. We will visit it again!

Room Tip: When visiting this hotel tell the reception, “Theo V. said to pay attention to detail, please!”

serviceable hotel in a great location. We spent all waking hours exploring the city, so didn't need luxury. I initially sought a hotel in Alexanderplatz (wanted Park Inn), but all were booked so we ended up at Hotel AP. The hotel boasts an excellent location (much better than Alexanderplatz) - stone's throw from Hackescher Market fun food, sites and shopping (and S train to most of city). Easy walk to many major tourist sites. The rooms were clean, breakfast was good (eggs, selection of breakfast meats, bread, yogurts and toppings). Though we weren't looking for luxury, the bed (while comfy) was teeny-tiny, and was comprised of two 2/3-sized twins pushed together (hate this. cuddlers beware). No bathtub, which is a major detraction for me. Request not to be on 6th (top) floor - slanted ceiling cuts room right in half. You're paying for location here, not comforts. Would recommend to friends travelling together, or those only using hotel to get a brief nap then back out into the city. Not so great for romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Request not to be on 6th (top) floor - slanted ceiling cuts room right in half.

Stayed here recently for one night during a business trip.

As there was a trade fair, average room prices were much higher throughout Berlin compared to "normal" times. With this in mind, the value for money was very good give then good location close to Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt.

My single room was neat, clean and quite spacious, albeit nothing to write home about. Another plus was the free wifi.

Would come back again even if not my first choice in Berlin.

The hotel is a quick train ride from the main Berlin train station. It's located in an absolutely awesome section of Berlin. Lots of people told us to stay in nearby Alexanderplatz, but we thought this area was so much nicer. Alexanderplatz felt like Times Square. It was fun, but I was glad that we were sleeping somewhere quainter.

There are tons of restaurants and a small train station within a few steps of the hotel. The hotel also offers complimentary breakfast from 6:30 to 10 daily, and the offerings are varied and fresh.

There is free wifi in every room, and it's very reliable.

The rooms are big, but the bathrooms are small. We were located on the first floor, and it was a little noisy at night, but with the windows closed tightly, we slept soundly.

There is air conditioning and it worked ok although it was cool during our stay.

The room was cleaned daily, and was comfortable enough. The beds are just two twin beds pushed together, which was fine, but not totally comfortable.

The hotel is a comfortable walking distance from most of the main attractions.including the Brandenberg Gate, the Wall and Museum Island.

The hotel is very near Museum Island, Berlinerdom, Humbolt University, to name a few places one should visit while in Berlin. It was quiet - away from traffic, yet very close to everything, very clean and has a friendly, helpful staff. The beds were comfortable. They had a very good breakfast. Get off at the Hackescher Markt station, not the Alexanderplatz station which is actually further away than Hackescher Markt.
