This hotel is good value for money. The location at first seemed rather odd - located on a deserted street; however it is less than a minute from 'Gleisdreieck' u-bahn station and here lies the hotels great assett.You can get to anywhere in Berlin in no time at all. We've stayed in a range of hotels from luxury 5 star hotels to places where you simply just want a comfortable place to stay without the swimming pool, spa and expensive restaurants etc. If you want a hotel, that isn't over pompous, that is comfortable with efficient staff and service then this is the hotel for you.
We didn't eat or drink in the hotel, preferring to spend our time in the centre of Berlin so can't comment on this aspect. Potsdammer Platz is a short journey on the u-bahn or a pleasant 10 min walk and a further 10 or so minutes walk you will reach the Brandenburg Gate. In terms of the airport, this is roughly 1 hour away and for budget conscious travellers getting to and from the airport is extremely easy - a change at Alexanderplatz is all that is needed.
We too have joked about the hotel being on a deserted street, we didn't believe it at first when we read the reviews - be prepared for that! But don't let it prevent you from booking this hotel.
Yes, there are hotels located in the centre that might have 4 or 5 stars etc and if you want that then look elsewhere, but for pure value, comfort, and ultimately as a base simply for somewhere to sleep whilst spending much of your time visiting places in Berlin then this hotel is highly recommended.
