Upon arrival, the young women who welcomed us were warm and very kind. this was the only warmth and kindness we received from any of the front desk people during the 6 days we were at the hotel. In fact, the men at the desk were surprisingly unhelpful. The room was large and had all of the amenities one would like - coffee machine, minibar, sitting area, decent bathroom, etc. However of the two pillows we received, one was ok and the other was a cheap, paper-thin type. Also, the blankets - one for each of us - were less than twin size. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel as we thought that 18 euros per person was very high but it looked like a well endowed assortment. There are plenty of coffee shops and a starbucks nearby.
The hotel is located within 5 brisk walking minutes of two different train stations and we walked from the hotel to Potsdammer Platz within 20 minutes. I wouldn't stay here again, mostly because of the uncomfortable pillows and blankets but also because I hope to never be in Germany again.
