Very friendly staff. Modern designed and clean rooms. Great location and very close to the underground station and a 20-min walk to Alexander Platz. The street was quiet, we had a lovely nights sleep. Wi-fi in the room was very weak.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are better but weaker Wi-Fi.

I was there for an entire week and it was a very pleasant stay. The hotel has all the commodities necessary for a week in the city. It's very well located near the subway and all types of public transportation, and is also not far from a walk to the museums. The Oranienburger Strasse is full of restaurants and they serve good food for a reasonable price.

The ambience of the rooms is quite sensual sexy...
Innovative and fresh design and the huge glass window overlooking the street is definitely a plus...
A bit overpriced maybe and the bed a little too firm.

1st Berlin hotel i stayed in. Stylish rooms that have giant windows looking out onto the street. Can be a bit noisy on Saturday night in summer when bars a busy. Simple solution is to go to bars. Cocktail bar downstairs is fun, nice staff. I go here sometimes even though I live locally.

Having stayed at the hotel five years ago, we decided to book it again for a couple of nights over New Year. The location of the hotel is just perfect, especially if you're there for a spot of sightseeing: it's a 10/15 minute walk to Unter den Linden and Brandenburger Tor or to the Hackescher Markt and Alexanderplatz in the other direction. The Oranienburger Strasse and the surrounding area of the hotel is full of decent bars and restaurants. The hotel is also very well connected to public transport with the tram right outside the hotel and the Friedrichstrasse train station only a 5 minute walk away.

The rooms' open bathroom (only a curtain to separate the sink and bathtub from the room) may not be to everyone's taste, but the rooms are spacious (though some have an odd layout) and beds comfortable. I would recommend asking for a room out the back as the passing tram on the street-facing side may be a bit loud.

The staff at the hotel are very friendly, helpful and professional and most speak good English.

While there is free wifi in the lobby, the rooms have only cable internet connection which could be upgraded to wifi at some stage, particularly given guests' preference for tablet computers.

Overall a great experience yet again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the building may be a bit quieter though they won't have the unique flo...

Great hotel! We had to deal with a lost credit card, and Nicol at the reception desk was very helpful. The room was very clean and nice. Our overlooked a patio, so it was not noisy as others have commented. Fun neighborhood, fantastic nextdoor. The moccachino will hit the spot.
