This is a comfortable but small hotel located in the heart of the Savignyplatz/Charlottenburg area. I was traveling alone but I asked for a double room. The single rooms are very very small and for the price (80-100 euros) per night ridiculous. One of the really annoying things about some hotels is how they don't tell you in their websites that wifi costs PER DAY which adds up. At the Carmer16 it is only 5 euros but it was not mentioned until I checked in. The breakfast which is 10 is good. Very beautifully displayed and watched over by an efficient if not a little bit intimidating lady. (Don't attempt to take a plate to your room!) The rooms that I saw including mine (48) were clean and reasonably quiet. I was there on a busy summers weekend and never heard my neighbours at all which is a tremendous plus. However if you are claustrophobic which I am the hotel does feel "tight" if you know what I mean. (See pictures.)
The pluses are a wonderful staff who, though thoroughly German and therefore not over friendly, are helpful and professional. This hotel is close to everything with the S-Bahn just up the street, ( but double plus you don't hear it!) and loads of very nice cafes and restaurants with a variety of food on offer.
I really believe tripadvisor should offer a "good" rating. This hotel, overall, is good. Above "average" but not "very good".
One thing I need to mention is for elderly or disabled travelers. There are a LOT of steps. Although there is a lift there are steps to the 4th and 5th floors and steps going into reception. Also the tub in my room was very high to step into and VERY slippery. Not recommended.
I would stay here again for the convenience and the breakfast but the telly is small in all the rooms and the beds comfort level is just okay.
