Fantastic hotel very close to Berlin Hauptbahnhof station (2min walk). As close to marathon start line.
Staff friendly. Wifi signal goes funny on floor 9. Showers were great, beds comfortable. Great stay.

Solo traveller on a city break, looking for a reasonably priced place to wash and sleep. I did not require feeding or business facilities and booked this hotel on its recommendations in Tripadvisor and proximity to a station (Wittenbergplatz).
The staff are very helpful and fluent English speakers and the single room was clean and comfortable with a good bathroom and free wi-fi. It also had a television which I did not use. My room was at the rear (I was given a choice of rooms on arrival) and was very quiet even with the window open.
The position was excellent; 100m from the U Bahn and less than an hour from Schonfeld Airport by public transport. Any of Berlin's sights, including Potsdam is reachable within an hour.
My visit was in very mild October weather and I could never get the room as cool as I would have liked. The room has air conditioning but as the rooms power supply depends on your swipe key being plugged in it is impossible to run while you are out. The staff did say they would investigate further but as my stay was short and the temperature acceptable I did not pursue it. I would be cautious of booking in high summer and ascertain that the A/C was running properly.
With this one proviso I can say I enjoyed my stay and would happily return.
Good location, short walk from Mockernbrucke U Bahn station, fairly quiet street beside the canal. Basic, clean and comfortable rooms, no frills but a perfectly good base for exploring the fabulous city. Cheap, fresh continental breakfast, more than enough to fill up on. Will be going back:)
The staff was friendly, the breakfast was good and the room was more than large enough for me and my three teenage kids. We loved being close to the action on the Ku'damm and we enjoyed being within walking distance of many good shops and restaurants.
The staff were so nice and helpful even before we arrived, they helped us and answered all my questions extensively. The room is big and clean, felt like we're the first to sleep in it! we thought the breakfast was too pricey so we didn't eat there, plus I am vegan so I practically had nothing I can eat there... the Thai restaurant was VERY good and tasty, prices were fair. the service was great, we once came about 10-20 minutes before closing, hungry as hell, and they let us in to eat :) thanks for that!
The room service was very good, we left him/her a thank you note when we left. it was nice coming to a clean room after a long traveling day.
There is a computer (Mac) in the lobby which is in German but works great and free to use. the wi-fi is strong and fast (we were at the 5th floor and still great reception)
On the last day they watched over our stuff from check-out till we left in the evening, which was great and also free. not so obvious.
the hotel is a super nice place the owner is putting money in the hotel and is improving it all the time, This is not a luxury hotel, basic and simple, the breakfast is very well done and is very good, house cleaning ladies are nice and do an awesome job at keeping the place clean... the front desk people were very nice , and very knowlegable about there job.. Over all a super nice and very affordable place to stay...
