Excellent value for the money

Posted 19-Jun-2014
Pros: Excellent value
Cons: Staff not always well informed.
Usual amenities, clean, comfortable - on the east side of town so nestled amidst Stalinist buildings; right off Frankfurter Allee makes for easy ingress/egress from town.

need some air

Posted 27-Jul-2013
Pros: friendly service
Cons: stuffy rooms, street noise
Location: close to frankfurter alle train station
The hotel was genreally fine, staff were helpful and spoke a few different languages, The two biggest issues were that the rooms were very stuffy, the fan/air conditioning wasnt working well enough to keep the room with a good temperature, so we had to keep the windows open all night. which leads to the problem of the noise on the front side of the hotel which would start at 7am and finish at 9am. This may just be a temporarey issues since a street is being repaired. If I were not staying there is winter I might stay there again, but never again in summer.

Hotel far from city center.

Posted 08-Jul-2013
Cons: Cable tv with offer of more English speaking channels
Location: Location is not so good, far from city center. Don't dare go to Restaurant Il Mondo, food is a-w-f-u-l.
I booked this hotel using the surprise offer of Expedia; I won't be doing it again, because although it is a 4 star hotel, it doesn't feel like: room is small, except for CNN and BBC, tv only in German. Breakfast is expensive at 17 euros p/person. Overnight is expensive for the service offered; I'm sure I'd get the same service fin a 3 star hotel, which would have cost me at least 20,00 euros less per day. Next time I will choose the hotel myself, instead of using the surprise feature of Expedia, which really surprised me, I was waiting to be pleased with it so that I'd try this experience more often, but I won't repeat it.

Great hotel with with some shortcomings

Posted 22-Oct-2012 on Hotels.com
Good location and a reasonable price level for three days. Reception staff was very helpful and the room was always nice and clean. Could not get the safe deposit to work because instructions were only in german. Visited the restaurant very briefly - Waiter/hosts seemed very unfriendly so we found another place to enjoy our meal. Free wifi in all rooms, but at the 5th floor the signal was so poor, that we could not connect. Free parking on a nearby public parking area. But all in all, a very pleasant stay,

Perfect location!

Posted 27-Sep-2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel was a complete and wonderful surprise! While it is a long way if you are coming in from Tegel airport (and the local U-station stop was temporarily down for service), it was perfect for seeing the sights of the former East Berlin. Easy walk to anywhere. Being ex-military, I've seen it all, so this recommendation doesn't come lightly.

Clean hotel, close to facilities

Posted 25-Jun-2012 on Hotels.com
Very impressed with the room. We stayed 4 nights in one at the top floor, it was quite small but this made it cosy for a couple, the bathroom was perfect, the blinds were very efficient against the light in the morning, the bed very comfortable - overall very clean and cosy. Only problem was the air conditioning - very inefficient/useless, which made it get very uncomfortably warm in the room at times. The staff at reception was helpful but not particularly friendly (on the verge of unfriendly in fact). After seeing the standards of the room, I was very disappointed with the hotel restaurant - food was average (found a bit of plastic in my sauce) and service wasn't particularly friendly. Walking to the centre takes about an hour, otherwise both tubes stations are a 5 minute walk away. A big shopping centre nearby offers everything you need on a rainy day, from food and drinks to clothes and electronics. Overall I would give a big + for the room (forgetting the disfunctional air conditioning), +/- for service, and a big - for the noise coming from outside in the morning (as early as 6am until about 10h30), it woke us up every morning and was very loud. I'm guessing they were only temporary works so I don't wish anyone else to experience them so early in the morning on a romantic break for two.
