“Very Original, fine location, beware of the trains”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

This is possibly the most original hotel in Mitte, on walking distance from the Hbf Station and the Brandenburger Tor. Nice staff. Breakfast is in the brasserie next door ( rain ?) but is more than ok.One caveat: there are rooms ( i had one) located on 2 meters from the tracks of the SBahn. Very special.

This is a neat hotel if you like room individuality and historical buildings with stories of its rehabilitation through various eras, and how people tried to escape East Berlin through its windows, etc. It is centrally located with a very close walking distance to main train station and on the bus route to Alexanderplatz and the center of the city. The only problem is the constant noise of the trains running next door to the hotel all day and all night. One could close the doubled windows but not on a hot humid night in August since there is no air conditioning.

Pretty good location (about 800 meters to the Spree and U &S Bahn stations). Also walking distance to Brandonburg Gate and Reichstag. Clean rooms, complementary shampoo / soap and Internet. Very nice and helpful at reception desk. Overall pleasant experience. They all bumped me up to a double room just because they had availability. Large rooms are rare in Europe so that was appreciated.

The hotel is located in central Berlin near Brandenburg gate and Friedrikstrasse
Rooms: arty, comfortable beds, very clean shared bathrooms, +++
Service: very good, professional and helpful, asked to be changed to another room due to noise and they dealt with it very well
I did not have breakfast, but there are nice cafes nearby
Berlin, a fascinating city, will return and probably stay here again!

The individual rooms are very exciting, as every room looks different. The food is very good and the location is central. Service was friendly as well. The big issue is that rooms which face the "trainfront" are terribly loud. Every 1 to 2 min. a train roars by until late in the night making it almost impossible to sleep. We could get another room which was quiter.

I stayed for two nights in one of the better single suites. First of all, they have dedicated lockers for storing bags in the foyer (done in a cool secure way too). Secondly, the staff was very friendly and spoke very good english. It is about 10 mins walk from the HBF and 5 mins from the Reichstag. I could walk to most central attractions (Checkpoint Charlie, museum island) in 30 mins and used the U-Bahn for everything else. Lastly, the premise of the hotel is in the first name....art. The rooms have been "designed" and give a pretty cool comfortable vibe. I would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Wi-Fi repeaters were around the hotel but Wi'Fi signal was not strong outside of public areas, a...

This hotel is one of its kind and this must have been the first time I stayed at such a "funky" hotel! You realize you have come to an interesting place as soon as you enter the lobby. My room was very small but the wall colors and the weird art (the room had the front of a red horse coming out on one well and its butt going into the opposite!) more than made up for it! They also have an outdoor seating/breakfast area that was very green and beautiful. The corridors are lined up with a ton of paintings and photographs. My room did not have a bathroom of its own but the shared ones at the end of the corridor were clean. The hotel is in the center of Berlin with many attractions very very close by - definitely a huge plus!

The only downside was that that the hotel does not have an elevator. My room was on the 3rd floor and I had a heavy bag which the receptionist carried up for me but I felt so sorry for him.
