Big comfortable room, helpful desk staff who speak fluent English. Refrigerator, microwave, cooktop and dishes in the room. Half a block from S-bahn. A few minutes walk from Museum Island and Humboldt U, so lots going on very close. Bakery and grocery almost next door. About half an hour in cab from Tegel.
Location was brilliant near a number of restaurants, shopping and quick walk into center. Rooms are lovely. Was there for marathon and one downside is restaurant that provides breakfast did not open early enough to accommodate runners.
We found the hotel to be very nice and comfortable. It was in an area with a large number of restaurants and was a few minutes walk to a large shopping area. Around the corner was a train station so in poor weather or for long journeys there was that convenience. The staff at the hotel were courteous and helpful and spoke excellent English. The breakfast was good, both in terms of the food served and the surroundings. Again the staff was excellent. The hotel is located near Musum Island and and the cathedral and is within about a 20 min walk to Brandenburg Gate; so the location is excellent. All in all, Berlin is a great place to visit and this hotel certainly contribtes to that feeling.

Attending a conference in Berlin and was booked here by the university. We stayed on for an extra week at our own expense. The "standard room" is small but very clean, great staff, and hotel is convenient to cafes, museums and walking around. The english- language version of the website is not as detailed at the German version and it suggests that the hotel may not accept credit cards once you are there. They do take credit cards and can also help you with ubahn tickets, stamps, etc. Great breakfasts though pricey if you don't plan on a long relaxing meal. That internet is available for free in the lobby made the lingering breakfast attractive. Loved the courtyard sitting area. The staff bi-lingual was incredibly helpful with directions. And I will certainly stay there again.
The awesome part:
- There's a male receptionist in the evening (forgot his name) there's only one - he's really helpful with tips on restaurants, sightseeing. You've got to speak to him. He's awesome !!!!
The good part:
- Very central hotel
- Nice clean rooms and have a beautiful view of the river! I was in room #3.
- The attached cafe has a nice breakfast buffet. Worth the 10 euros!
- The room and bathroom are cleaned everyday by a maid service.
- The s-Bhan stating is a 5 min walk - so no need tot take a taxi.
- Reception: The ladies attending to the reception in the day time are not very helpful - don't even smile!
- The internet signal in the rooms is patchy and almost not there - but strong in the lobby.
- The bathroom is private - but not attached to the room! Its the next door in the corridor and opens with your room key. Nobody else uses it ... but its awkward to have to go out of your room to the bathroom each time!
Overall: I recommend a stay here.

I spent the most delightful weekend at hotel Augustinenhof. From check in to check out, the experience was amazing. The staff go out of their way for you, offering advice and even held my bag on my last day so that I could spend the last few hours enjoying Berlin, without dragging my luggage around. The room was spotlessly clean, TV with some English news channels, mini bar and free WiFi. It's also on a beautiful street full of art galleries and designer boutiques. There are cafes, bars and restaurants within a minutes walking distance in every direction. Oranienstrasse ubahn is five minutes walk and Museum Island approximately 10 minutes. Berlin was amazing. I will return next year and will stay at this hotel.
