“Well positioned with awfull breakfast”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

So, the rooms are small, but positive, somehow smiling even. Everything perfectly clean. The service is nice and welcoming. It's close to Alexanderplatz and Prenzlauer Berg. Even some nice restaurants are not far from here.
The bed was perfect. I was on the street side and it was not noisy despite the trafficky street.
But breakfast is just horrific. All the ingredients are so confectionery and with such a bad choice that after two days one looks for the nearest bakery (there is a good one around the corner).
It's a good place if you know how to use Berlin.

This hotel charged my account before I had even arrived in the country the full amount of the stay. The total cost equating to over $300AUD. According to my bank statements the amount was charged previous to that of the deposit which I made when booking. I then tried to cancel my booking, to which I had no reply. Once emailing further in regards to the illegal debit to my account I never heard back once again. I would absolutely NOT recommend this hotel. I ended up staying somewhere much cheaper, who accommodated for me straight away. For the excessive price I would expect a much higher level of professionalism having worked in the industry for a very long period of time myself.

Room Tip: Do not book here.

I agree with the other reviews.

Good size room. OK Bath. Great Breakfast. WiFi works as it should.

Super staff - we had a early departure, and they went to the trouble to make breakfast for us.

Tram across the street - easy to get to the Airport Bus, and around Berlin.

About 4 long blocks to Alexanderplatz.

Nothing to flash but its clean, cosy and comfy. The free tea and coffee is always a bonus. The morning breakfast was decent with a good range to choose from. The staff were helpful with local restaurants and maps. The tram is right across the road so getting around is not a problem and they usually come every few minutes.

I went to this hotel in February together with my daughters (14 & 16). Small and cosy. The standard is quite simple, but it was very clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was also simple, but very good selection considering the size of the hotel. The location is ok, but we would have preferred to live a bit closer to the main areas in Prenzlauer Berg (e.g. near Rykestrasse). All in all - very good for its price.

I really like the hotel. It is a great value. They have a very good breakfast, nice clean rooms and great staff, which is very helpful.

I give it a 4, as the rooms and the showers are pretty small. Also, it is over 10min walk to the train station, but you can take a tram or a bus.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.
