This is a three star hotel with a perfect location and great staff. The rooms are very small and there are not many amenities.
When we arrived, they only had smoking rooms available. Both of these rooms reeked of cigarettes and really exacerbated my allergies. I had to leave this hotel immediately and find accommodation elsewhere.
The staff is very helpful. The hotel was completely full with so many visitors and there were only two people at the front desk. These poor young ladies were being overworked but still had smiles on their faces. They still went out of their way to help us to find accommodation elsewhere.
Antionette Wein provided five star service. She provided us the contact information for the Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental hotels not too far away in West Berlin where we were able to find suitable accommodations for our trip.
Overall, this is a three star hotel with an excellent central location. The hotel is not very expensive so you cannot really expect that much. If you have never stayed in a three star hotel before then this hotel is NOT for you. I certainly learned my lesson here and will never book a three star hotel ever again.
