The headline could mean that this hotel is only for transit as it is conveniently located relative to all communications, but I think it could just as well be convenient for travellers wanting to explore the city. However, the location more or less at the central train station in a rather sterile surrounding where other hotels and buildings are being constructed right now may not be so charming if one want to live in a more hospitable neighbourhood in Berlin. The regular checkpoints for a business hotel are all very good, easy and friendly check-in and -out, comfortable rooms (just adequate space), nice bathroom facilities, TV and minibar, free wifi (works well), good restaurant and bar etc. Breakfast is excellent and price not too steep. I got the impression that the hotel is a budget hotel in the Steigenberger chain, and if you want more luxury there is another Steigenberger hotel in front of the InterCity Hotel. My only little concern is that the (single) beds are a bit narrow,but that does not affect my total rating.

- In October 2013, we have opened our biggest InterCityHotel right in the middle of the pulsating metropolis Berlin, set directly at the main station. Within spitting distance, you can find some excitement here in the beautiful city centre with its important sights like the Federal Chancellery, the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, the shopping centre Friedrichstrasse or the legendary Ku'damm. From the centrally located InterCityHotel Berlin Hauptbahnhof, you find the best connections to all forms of local public transport within walking distance.
