“Lovely hotel, excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We stayed here for 5 days and found the hotel staff to be very efficient and obliging. They even printed out our boarding passes! Hotel is clean, bright and our room overlooked the courtyard. Breakfast, which was included in our deal, was buffet style and filled us up 'til lunch time. Bedroom was big enough for 3 though the hotel could upgrade the pillows which we found were too soft. The location is fantastic. Area felt very safe. Whether you want to walk to the zoo or use public transport, you are ideally located. We bought the 72 hour travel pass and availed of the discounts for the DRR and Story of Berlin museums. If you turn right out of the hotel, stroll down Knesebeckstrasse (lots of coffee shops, restaurants, etc.) you'll get to KuFuDamstrasse (shops). All in all an excellent hotel and location for exploring the many wonderful sights of chilled out Berlin. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the courtyard.

My wife and I spent 6 nights (last week) at this hotel. It is in a quiet street that is very close to the city and is convenient for sightseeing. The staff were very helpful and the lobby area is basic but welcoming. We booked a larger room at the front of the hotel. This was quiet and warm considering the tine of year.

The room was functional and probably good for a couple of nights but lacked the niceties of other hotels for a longer stay. No fridge/minibar, strange and not very comfy pillows but the lack of a hotel guest wifi was very inconvenient. The hotel appears to be in a wifi hotspot that is free but the connection was appalling. Advertising free wifi seems to be rather misleading and a dedicated hotel wifi system should be installed.

We did not have breakfast in the hotel preferring to sample the many local coffee shops.

Ok for a short stay but not for a longer visit.

Room Tip: Go for front larger rooms

It's an easy bus ride from Tegel airport or a E16 taxi ride to this quiet hotel on a leafy side street close to the temporary opera house and university. The breakfast room is bright and sunny with a pretty good breakfast buffet. Nice and helpful desk staff. The floors our room creaked and friends of ours were in the room right below. Everything was clean, reasonably contemporary furnishings, and airy.

Room Tip: We were very happy on the front side of the hotel but it was January. We suspect room looking into t...

The hotel is clean, the rooms spacious, the price excellent and it's only one stop on the underground to the city centre. The hotel staff were very friendly and it's a 24hr recetption so very handy if you are planning on partying. The doors are key locks, but you leave your key in main reception as you leave so it's extremely convenient and no risk of losing it! In short, it's a great place to stay!

Room Tip: I have stayed in two different rooms, both were warm in the middle of winter and were very quiet. So...

We booked six room, three were renovated, three were not. Service was good and location was perfect. Breakfast was expensive and much better outside the hotel. Helpful reception and good reception! Overall, we recommend this hotel!

I like almost everything in that hotel. 12 minutes by bus from Tegel Airport, a few minutes by U-bahn from the city center, clean, big enough room, not noisy (we had a room in the building B with window no the back). And the price was pretty good.
The only thing you should be aware of is a welcome bottle of water, which is not included in the price. You have to pay 4 euro for that :-(
