“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We stayed in the Blue House, the sister accomodation 2 doors down from the Ackselhaus. A short walk to the tram and then to the subway for easy commute to wherever we wanted to go. A local neighborhood with many restaurants, though not many German. Room with entry hall and large bedroom by European standards. It would have been better if 2 chairs were provided with the table. Breakfast buffet was extensive and i wish the weather was nicer so we could have sat outside for breakfast. Our 3 night stay would have ended on a high note, except for the "out of order" sign on the elevator the morning we were leaving. An advance warning of this scheduled maintenance would have been nice. Did I mention we were on the 5th floor. Thump, thump, thump down the stairs we came with our luggage.

This hotel outdid our expectations. Our room was beautifully furnished with one of a kind pieces, the complimentary breakfast was incredible, they rent apple i-pads for $6/day, the patio is inviting and there were drinks and snacks awaiting our return. Everything was impeccable. The price was startlingly reasonable! Ackselhaus is in a pleasant neighborhood, three blocks from the subway station, three stops to museum island.

Room Tip: Our room had an over-size bathroom with a cot, so one person could comfortable read or email without...

Fabulous 25th anniversary trip, room was spotless, hotel was filled with tiny details and quaint items. Bottle of Cava was waiting chilled in our room when we arrived from the staff.

Service at breakfast was lovely with attentive waitress. Nothing was too much trouble and the little conservatory area prefect for a drink when the weather was less than perfect.

The area nearby had lots to do from nice bars, beer gardens to flea market. I would love to travel there again and would stay at the same hotel for sure. Many thanks to the team there.

What an oasis in Berlin, nutrition for the soul! And probably the best service personel I have ever met. The rooms where well cleaned and the beds great to sleep in. I'm not exaggerating. The only thing missing that I can think about is a safety box in the room, but that is handled by the reception.

Room Tip: We had the rooms on the ground floor in the back garden (Blue home). Yet quiet and discrete.

We stayed at the Blue Home wish is the building next door to the Ackselhaus but it’s the same hotel.
The atmosphere is fantastic, the location is great and the breakfast is very nice!
Not far away from the hotel you have a road with different cafes, restaurants and bars.
This must be the nicest area in Berlin!
We hade a studio with one room and it was perfectly enough for 2 nights. They also have different suites wish I think we will try next time…
The only negative thing is that they only take maestro card and cash.
Anyway, I promise you, you will not be disappointed if you choose this hotel.

If you are not on a busy down town schedule this is the place to be. In prenzlauerberg with all the nice restaurants and cafe's nearby you have this charming hotel. Most of the rooms have a theme and, we have been in two this year, are very nice. A proper german breakfast is possible. The building and garden have lots of charm. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Tranquil and recharging.

Read the reviews and things looked promising. What a mistake we made in going here. Leaky ceilings,terrible service,unfriendly personnel...I actually dreaded going back to the cold dark room every night. The only plus would be good location and good breakfasts...but alot of hotels have that.Maybe if we had a room in the front of the building,but that faces a school.
