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.
Spent just one night in the hotel, used the restaurant (thai food) in the evening, and the breakfast in the morning. The hotel is excellent value for money: it is very inexpensive, yet modern, and clean. The rooms and the lobby are nicely furnished, and the staff helpful and efficient. The wi-fi network is very fast, but there is no phone in the room. The only drawback is the hotel location: it is difficult to find, and not easily accessible by public transport (about 20 minutes walk from the nearest S-bahn station). Bikes can be hired at the hotel or just near-by.
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.
Useful location about 15 to 20 minutes walk from from Alexanderplatz. Best to take M2 tram for 2 or 3 stops. Our room was on 5th floor. Suspect rooms on the lower levels facing the street could be a bit noisy. Sound insulation between the rooms was only average. Room was modern, clean and basic. The breakfast was good, but rather expensive for this type of hotel.Staff were pleasant.
