We stayed four nights in a comfort room at Gates Hotel. The location is excellent - close to a U-Bahnstation and several restaurants and cafes in the peaceful neighbourhood. Even though our room faced the street there were absolutely no problems with noise. The room was good - spacious and clean.
But there vere several details that didn't make the stay more than 'ok'. The staff at the reception were mainly nice, but there was this one lady, who definitely should work somewhere else than in a hotel reception. She was unfriendly - almost hostile against some clients, including us after having caused here extra work with the safe in our room. After all we were never able to use the safe, since it wasn't worth while to remind the reception that is didn't work (no instructions either...).
The pillows were terrible, but luckily we managed to get extra pillows. The breakfast was ok, but quite boring, so do not include breakfast in your reservation. There is nice cafes almost next door to the hotel - in those you get far better value for money. Nowhere else have I been served scrambled eggs with nothing but boiled eggs...
There is a minisize-bar in the hotel, but apparently it's open only Fri-Sat evenings. No minibar in the room, but there is a vending machine where you can get cold drinks - in case you have the right sort of coins. If you visit the bar and want a relaxing and peaceful moment, then do not get involved in discussions with the bartender...
A peculiar detail in the hotel is that you have to pay for the room at arrival. The lady at the reception said this is hotel policy, since clients have left without paying "and the manager doesn't like this".
Due to the location I could stay at Gates Novum again for just one or two nights on a working trip - if the price is ok. But it will definately not be my choice the next time I want to spend some leisure time in Berlin

Stayed here three nights in May. The room had to accommodate 5 of us, which it did but most importantly, the location was wonderful. The area was lovely and there were lots of cafes and restaurants close by (we did not partake in the included breakfast because of this). Also, it was just a 5 minute walk to nearest U-bahn (Ernst - Reuter platz). The wireless internet is a little finicky because you have to authenticate with the password every time but it was a great value overall.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors with the courtyard are the quietest.

Stayed here three nights , paid £109, value could not be beaten. Lovely room, comfy bed, great shower, clean towels every day, what more do you need when you are up and out all day. Lots of cafes close by, loads of restaurants to choose from. 5 mins walk to nearest U-bahn, Ernst - Reuter platz, one stop from zoolister gartens and then berlin is at your feet. Loved the stay, we will be back.

Great location - Charlottemburg and only few minutes walk from Zoologidhen Garten Station.
Simple but big and clean rooms. Nice open patio. Good service.
I paied very special price that was a great deal compare to what I got.
Breakfast is extra paid but there are so many nice bars and restaurants around it is worth to go out without it.

I stayed here to be close to the Schillertheater where I was going to an opera. It's a 5 minute walk away in one direction, in the other you are at the lovely Savigyplatz in 3 minutes. The area used to be the heart of Berlin when the city was divided; Kaethe Kollwitz Platz in Prenzlauer Berg now plays the role Savignyplatz used to. But it's stil a lovely area, and anyone who loves used and collectible books will be delighted by the wealth of antiquariate on these streets. Very close to the U2 as well as the S-bahn. The hotel itself was quiet and clean; high ceilings, drapes that kept out the light, and pleasant staff. Also a real deal, price-wise. I'd definitely stay again. I mean, who can resist a pack of gummi bears on the pillow?
