“Clean, good location & inexpensive”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Well priced hotel with good facilities and a good location for walking distance to the Reichstag & Brandenburg Gate, with excellent links to the train transport.

Staff: Welcoming, friendly and informative however didn't inform about swiping card in lift and bumped into other customers stuck in the lifts when first checking in!

Room: Perfect for a city break; good size bed, shower lovely and necessary items all provided.

Location: Hotel is located 2 minutes away from Hauptbahnhof Train Station however there is little in terms of cafes, bars or restaurants nearby. This means having to walk towards the Reichstag (10 minutes) or take train into Alexanderpatz or other busier area's which isn't an issue as trains are excellent and free pass is provided for you for travel during your stay - by the hotel.

TRAINS: Hauptbahnhof train station is HUGE. The platform that you are likely to use the most is platform 15/16, which is located on the third level of the train station and takes you to the main tourist attractions using the S5 line.

Overall: Good hotel for a city break and good location for sight seeing, with a free city travel pass which is a worry off your mind as never having to buy tickets is great! I would stay here again if I return to Berlin.

Hope this helps!

Room Tip: Room 740, top floor. View of the Reichstag but not a good one, mainly looked out upon other hotel...

Great hotel location if arriving/departing from the Berlin Hbf. Extremely friendly staff, big and clean rooms, easy access to the rest of Berlin. Short walk to the Reichstag and Brendenburg Gate, the room even came with a 2-day pass to use any public transportation in Berlin. I would highly recommend it for a weekend visit to Berlin!

Room Tip: Had a room on the 5th floor looking NW at train tracks and never heard the trains at all.

2minute walk from Hbf, it was extremely easy to go anywhere in the city. Rooms are big, very comfortable, great bed and shower!
Breakfast was absolutely amazing - it's really worthy paying that little extra!
Staff was really nice, polite and caring!

Modern hotel with very friendly staff. Situated only a couple of hundred yards from the Hauptbahnhof, this hotel is also handy for buses. It is within walking distance of the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate so is an excellent base for sightseeing. This is made easier by the fact that you get a complimentary travel voucher for use on all public transport.
The bedroom was comfortable with the usual amenities; extra tea/coffee available on request. Bar prices were reasonable but the price for breakfast was a bit steep. However, the breakfast itself was very good with a variety of choices. The bonus in the bar was the complimentary glass of peanuts brought to your table with the drinks.
Check-in was reasonably efficient although a bit slow. Also, we were not advised that you have to swipe your door key in the lift in order for it to operate!
Although next to the railway, we were not troubled by noise. The view from our room actually was the railway.
The breakfast room was always busy but the efficiency of the staff in clearing tables meant that we did not have to wait. Also, the food trays were regularly topped up.
All in all I found this hotel to be good value and would certainly use it again.

We stay in this hotel about 5 days and first impression was good because this hotel very new ,clean and huge.
Nancy was first receptionist that we met in reception.... We were waiting until our turn to get served to check in but she was too busy to do papers things and didn't say anything to us about 4 minutes,she could say " I'll be with you in a minute,sir" but she didn't say anything to us ....she said only " do you want to check in?" Bad words to say that to guests......she could say more polite things like.....hi,how are you? ( smile ) how was your journey to come to us? Was it difficult to find?.....anyway please teach more your staff about hospitality .

Room is big and really nice bath room...we love it.
Our 2nd day the housekeeping didn't clean our room and since we stay here our sheets didn't change at all....I feel like sleeping on dirty bed :-(((

Telephone doesn't work at all....we informed reception but no body fix it :-((

The hotel is located in just a few minutes walk from the Central Station, close to other transports, easy to access some of the tourist spots such as the Deutscher Bundestag. The hotel is clean, modern designed and with reasonable facilities in room, including heater in the bathroom. A good value for the price, in particular it provided a free travel card.

This is a bare bones hotel that is spotless and soundproof. Even though right next to train station it is perfectly quiet. Its such a great deal to get a free public transportation card with your stay, really came in handy. The other great thing about these hotels is that you know once you get off the train you can walk to the hotel without having to get a cab. I would have liked to have had a coffee pot or water boiler in the room but can live without it as long as the place is so clean.
