Our friends booked the hotel for our long weekend trip to Berlin. I was not expecting a great deal, as I am happy with a quiet, clean hotel at fair prices. What we got surpassed my expectations!
This hotel is very new and clean, and seems to be well built to last. It takes up a single (part) floor on an old apartment complex. Once through the main entrance door and up some steep steps you enter the world of Magritte! Delightful artwork on all walls and each bedroom with its own work of art on the wall (not hung on the wall, painted).
As mentioned elsewhere, the owners are friendly, helpful and ready to make your stay in Berlin more enjoyable if you need any advice or guidance.
The area of the hotel is pretty quiet, but just off the main West Berlin shopping street, with a many restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. You really feel that you are out of the centre of a big city. The metro (choice of 2 stations) is also just minutes away, meaning you can travel around Berlin quickly and safely.
A few points that should be mentioned; this is not a full service hotel. It provides bed and breakfast and no other meals or facilities. This will be fine for most people. Also, the entry is up a short but very steep set of stairs with no lift access - not a problem for many, but if you have difficulty moving around or young kids this may be a problem.
All in all, I and my partner had a very enjoyable time in Berlin which was enhanced by our stay at this wonderful find. Should I be in Berlin in the future, I shall certainly check availability at this hotel first.
