Last August my husband and I stayed for a week at the 3 star superior Sylter Hof Hotel in the city centre of Berlin.. Our room on the 5th floor was reasonably large, immaculately clean and the air cond was in tiptop condition, it faced a back garden and was very quiet. Buffet breakfast was very good and varied, most of the guests in this hotel were Germans and the staff spoke English very well and were very helpful. We had free internet at this hotel. Since we were on BB we ate daily a la carte at the Pucci Italian restaurant just next door to this hotel. Prices were very reasonable, service was fast and the food was plentiful and something to brag about.

Right outside the hotel's main entrance there is a bus stop and the double decker bus No.100 goes practically to most of the main attractions every 10 to 20 mins. The metro is about 12 minutes walking distance from hotel and is open till 12.45am. For Eur6.50 you can buy a day's ticket and make use of all types of transport.

The only disappointment about this holiday was that at exhibitions and places of interest, everything is written in German so we had to make use of their multi lingual guides.

Room Tip: All rooms at this hotel are quiet and very clean

I stayed in a single room which was very clean and comfortable, and the window could be opened wide which I think is a real bonus. The number 100 bus stops right outside the front door, there's a Netto supermarket just across the road and several restaurants / cafes within a 5-minute walk, so this hotel is in a very convenient location. The only downside for me was that being on a main road, there was a lot of traffic noise, even when the window was closed. Overall though, it was really good value for money.

Room Tip: Unless you're used to traffic noise, it may be worth asking whether there are quiet rooms at the...

Well situated on walking distance of subway and KaDeWe. Lobby redecorated. One person rooms and standard rooms also. Other rooms I'm not sure. I had a one person room and everything I needed. Great airco and wide bed. No minibar, but nice bar downstairs. Breakfast not included in our deal, but only € 10 for buffet. Friendly staff.
Bathroom a little bit small. Although recently refurbished, black stripes on white walls. Curtains a little bit to small. Wifi available and worked perfectly but should be included.

Recently stayed here for a 2 night visit of Berlin. The hotel is ideally located. Just outside the door the famous 100 bus stops which can take you to many tourist spots. A short walk away is Wittenbergerplatz underground station. Numerous bars, café's and restaurants are located a short walk away from the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. We bought our underground passes from them.
We stayed in one of their mini suits which was perfect. It had very effective air conditioning.
The hotel breakfast was nice but with just a little more effort one can get better value breakfasts from one of the nearby café's.

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel for business and it was very good choice.
It was really well located to great shops (and KaDeVe) and the zoo was just right around the corner as well (not that I had a chance to visit it unfortunately!).
Staff was very friendly and well informed of things to do if you have never been in Berlin before.

Rooms were decent, air conditioning worked great as it was very hot around the time I was in Berlin (nearly 40C). You had to pay extra for WiFi, which I nowadays find very annoying, it should be free with a hotel room, especially when when staying for business.

Breakfast was great. There was everything I could ask for and staff again were all very friendly and smiling always.

All in all, I think Sylter Hof once was a great hotel, but you can see it is getting a bit old now.
I am sure my mom would love this place, but for a younger person I would recommend some more "hip" places of Berlin.

The staff at ht ehotel was very friendly and helpful. Our room was ready before check in time and we received very good information upon arrival. We had a very nice and spacious room. The only things that we missed were some sort of air conditioning (it was very warm in the late afternoon) and some kind of fridge, for example to cool a bottle of water. Besides that the room was very nice and clean. We had breakfast at the hotel two mornings. It was a quiet breakfast room and a good selection and a very nice breakfast. We had to pre-order breakfast the day before since it was not included in the price for us.
We arrived at Tegel Airport in Berlin. It was very easy to get to the hotel by bus. One bus from the Airport, change at Bahnhof Zoo to another bus that stopped just maybe 25 metres outside the hotel. You could also take the bus to the area around Brandenburger Gate and Alexanderplatz. Only about 5 minutes away is KaDeWe and underground station Wittenbergplatz. About 10 minutes walk away you will find Kurfürstendamm/Tauentzienstrasse (Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnis-kirche etc).
There is a luggage storage room where you can store your luggage before/after check-out if needed.

Stayed at the hotel with my son(22) for a business trip.
The great location (5 min to KA.DE.VE), very nice and helpful stuff, great breakfast.
The room are very clean duo a bit small and the bed is also a bit small (and i'm not tall 1.75cm).
Bathroom look new, very clean & comfortable.
The only reason for not giving an excellent is: every morning at 07:15 we got a short phone ring (not a wake-up call just one ring). And the second reason was on night the fire alarm got off at about 23:00 and woke us twice when calling the reception I was told it is just a test (which in thr morning revealed as not) and at about 7:00 in the next morning it went-off again this time by maintenance.
