Berlin is Nice and that is about it. For a major city it is very quiet and does not have the excitement or buzz that others have. I would recommend A walking tour and make sure you visit the Belin wall as is quite moving. A trip up the TV tower is worth ago as well as it gives you a great view over the city.
The hotel. situated in the former East Berlin, is about 30 min by taxi from Berlin Hauptbahnhof. Tram M5 which runs close to the hotel,will take you to Alexanderplatz, with connections to other parts of Berlin via S-Bahn, U-Bahn. or bus. The hotel is clean and the staff courteous and friendly. They will assist you with tourist inquiries and can provide tram tickets. We were on the top floor which meant an elevator ride to Floor 2 and stairs the rest of the way. The staircase was short and was no problem to us, even with luggage. Breakfasts are worth the price.
Check-in was quick and easy, and the staff were helpful and spoke good English. We were able to add the option of breakfast (which we did) and it was lovely- a nice choice of continental breakfast, and again helpful staff. The room was exactly as booked, twin, and non-smoking; it was clean and reasonable sized, and we were provided with bottled water on arrival. The hotel is around a 20min train journey into the city, but it is an easy route and we would have needed a day ticket for all the trips we did across the city centre anyway so I think we saved money by booking this hotel. There is also a small small supermarket around the corner (next to the S-bahn stop) which has all the necessities (we bought bottled water). The "Coffee and Cake" cafe next to the S-bahn station also is lovely and reasonably price and we found useful for killing time between checking out of the hotel and our flight home! A couple of minor grumbles would be: the locks on the door were quite difficult to work and as the TV was completely in German (expected) an extra touch would have been for English subtitles to be possible. And finally, the biggest grumble for me was that there was no kettle in the room..... but maybe I'm just a typical British tea addict!
All in all however, this was a comfortable and pleasant stay, would definitely recommend!!!
It's convenient with S+U Bahn just few steps away from the hotel. But the hotel is quite old and some of the facilities not working for example their Wi-Fi, was fixed on the last day of my staying. Anyway we get it for the price we pay.
