Our stay at this hotel was just a complete pleasure, in large part due to the fantastic staff. We arrive very late one Friday night but the receptionists we bright and cheery and immediately upgraded us to an appartment when they heard that it was our first trip to Berlin. They also happily looked after our bags on Sunday after we checked out and were really helpful in ordering taxi's, etc. I know one comes to expect these sorts of things but it is so nice when the service is delivered quickly, without fuss and with a smile.
The appartment was spacious and comfortable without being indulgent - probably more of a business class hotel rather than a romantic botique.
It is, however, seriously well located, perhaps 5 minutes quick walk from Unter Dem Linden, the Sony centre or Potsdammer Platz.
Only two negative things I would note are:
1) The hotel itself is stylish and easy to spot but there are a couple of "massage parlours" on the same road which is a little seedy (quite funny to sit and watch the men going in for a "massage" at 11 PM on a Saturday night though!!).
2) Breakfast is in buffet form, which I'm sure is fantastic but at €18 Euros is a little steep in a city where things are, for Europe, pretty cheap.
As I'm not bothered by either of the above it's another 5 star review!
