My wife and I spent 3 nights here on a short visit to Berlin ( December 2012 ).
Having researched the Melia website and the reviews on TripAdvisor I deliberately booked a room on "the level", therefore this review is based on our experience of this standard of accomodation.
Our stay got off to a good start, speedy check-in with both of my room requests catered for ( a balcony and a view ).It is always a great start to a hotel visit when you know your requests have been considered.
We were allocated room 745 which overlooks the street and has a side view of the river. At no time did we have any problems with traffic noise.
Our room was spacious enough with a massive bed ( with lots of pillows to choose from ), plenty of storage, and a flat screen TV ( limited english-speaking channels ).
Bathroom was fine, there is a shower over bath, a bidet and some freebies ( sewing kit, shaving kit, toileteries etc. ).
Booking The Level turned out to be a great decision. This is a great concept and I'm sure it would be popular if it was available in more hotel's. The great thing about The Level lounge was that it was a relaxing environment with snacks and drinks freely available until 10pm which is a great option to have after a hard day's sightseeing. Breakfast is also served here if you wish and there is everything ( hot & cold ) you will require to give you a good start to the day. It also has the added bonus of wi-fi which I noticed is quite expensive if you have to pay for it. If you don't have your own device The Level has a couple of PC's for customer use.
I feel I must make special mention to our Level concierge, Nina Fiedler, who was informative, friendly, helpful and she proved to be the perfect hostess.
Our stay included a special 30 Euro per day spend ( booking direct with The Melia website ) but we struggled to use it up. The Hotel restaurant ( The Madrid ) was tapas which isn't to our taste but it looked very nice and the setting is good, overlooking the river. It is possible to roll up your 30 Euros per day allowance and use it here for a meal, so if you like Spanish/Tapas food you are onto a winner.
Location-wise the hotel is well placed, a few major attractions are within walking distance but public transport in the shape of under and over ground trains, trams, buses.
Our Late check-out request was not a problem and ended our stay on another positive note.
I would definitely return to this hotel if we ever re-visit Berlin and I can highly recommend it if you are looking for a hotel which is affordable with great extras.
