This was my favorite of the 5 hotels I stayed at during 2 weeks in Germany and France. Upon check-in, I was surprised to be upgraded to an apartment (Residenz) in the adjacent building. Considering I only paid 110 USD per night, this was unexpected. The front desk clerk was very friendly and gave me a free walking map of the city, which was just what I needed. The apartment was beautiful, spotless, and featured tall ceilings and a view of the courtyard. I heard no noise what-so-ever overnight. The apt featured a full stove, microwave, fridge/minibar and plenty of cabinets (no plates pans or cutlery, so I would have needed to furnish that in order to cook). The apt also featured a very nice espresso machine, which I must say was brilliant. I don't think I'll ever be happy with the rudimentary coffee machines in other hotels after experiencing this. Bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was well appointed. Only disappointment was the lack of free WIFI. I finally gave up and paid 3 EUR for 1 hr of access, but it was only because I had an urgent need. Also, there was no free bottled water in the room, unlike some hotels. I didn't try the breakfast, since I can't imagine whatever it was would have been worth 18 EUR extra/day. There is Coffee Fellows and other places within walking distance for morning fare. Location was good, with Checkpoint Charlie (tourist trap) nearby and the excellent Jewish museum under 10 min away by foot. I had to walk about 15 min with my luggage from the Friedrichstrasse S-bahn station since the U-bahn is under construction right now. My biggest disappointment was that I only got to stay here for 2 nights. For the price, location and city, I would have gladly spent a week here.
