A ten-minute walk from the Kulturforum (a huge cultural/art center) and Potsdamer Platz in downtown Berlin, the location of this hotel was perfect for me. There is so much to see and do right close by, including a stroll through the Tiergarten (huge park for walking or biking). The hotel itself is first rate, and my only complaint about the room would be the TV was old and small. But in a several day stay, I rarely watched anyway. I appreciated the free wifi, as well as swimming every day in the pool. The desk staff and concierge were always friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
Other than the breakfast being over priced, to which end you have the choice to take breakfast at a local cafe, I cannot fault this hotel. Staff were so caring, and efficient. I would definatley reccommend and consider repeat visit myself. A short walk to the Tiergarten and trains to all city has to offer. It was clean, spacious with an element of fun with its colours and design.
"Lovely central Berlin hotel with wonderful pool!"
We visited Berlin at the middle of November for a long weekend for a birthday. We go to Berlin a lot but had never stayed at this hotel before. We picked it out because it was very convenient to get to (X9 bus from Tegel Airport to the Zoo Station (Zoologischer Garten); 200 bus from there to Budapester Strasse), good central location, big pool and there was a great rate for our four night stay including flights. We usually choose boutique and non-chain hotels and we feared this might be a bit "samey" but we really loved it. Excellent service, that wonderful Berlin atmosphere and humour, hotel very very spacious and clean and we had a wonderful large, quiet room which included tea and coffee-making facilities. For info there is English and German TV in the room (and maybe other languages) and the staff speak excellent English. We hope to go back next Christmas for the markets.
We booked a superior room for 3 nights and stayed on the 10th floor in room 1012, which was very spacious and in a quiet part of the hotel. They were very attentive and accommodated our requests. It was also my partners birthday and we came back to the room to find a cake on the day we arrived and on his birthday as well! The hotel has a wonderful pool, even if not too warm. Breakfast was fantastic with huge choice of breads. Location is not very central, but we walked to the centre in 45 minutes and only 15 minutes on the overground. Trip from the airport is only 20 minutes on the X9 bus which stops at the Berlin Zoo. Plenty of shops to browse near the hotel if you fancy some shopping. Would stay again.
It's in a great location, (10mins on a bus from the centre of the east of berlin) breakfast was amazing rooms fab an staff was ok :) if you are looking at this hotel I would 110% book it now!! You won't be disappointed - and great for the money :) all a winner!!
"Sophisticated hotel in the heart of West Berlin."
Axel is very good hotel located in the West Berlin. The personnel are very friendly. Nice, modern hotel and good conditions of everything. Sauna, steam and gym located on the top floor and Jacuzzi in open air with a view to a neighborhood.
The area is cool in walking distance to main shopping streets, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Berlin Zoo. Public transport is perfect as everywhere.
