"Everything was excellent except the slow Internet"
Everything was excellent including the buffet breakfast.
The only con is the slow internet. If you give a free Internet I expect it to work or don't
call it free Internet. The Internet in the nineties' was faster. This is why I didn't rated the room comfort also 5.
But we really enjoyed our 3 night stay.
Excellent place to explore Berlin, it is a very nice location in what used to be East Berlin. The aparment has a nicely equipped kitchen and is pretty large with three rooms and 6 beds. Also has free WiFi.
"Good location, lovely helpful staff, some quirks.."
The hotel is nice and easy to find, close to transport links and a decent price. The staff on welcome were very friendly and looked after our case until we could check in later in the day so we could do some sight seeing. When we got into our room the first surprise was the bathroom had no door! The toilet (in thebathroom) had a door but there was a big gap at the bottom. A little unusual and the shower could be seen from the bed. Not so bad as a couple, but not great for friends sharing. Maybe its just my English "Prude" nature... The bed was MASSIVE :o) I couldn't even tell the other half was in it most of the time! Pillows a little soft but that's personal taste I guess! Minibar/fridge in the room with a polite notice you can use it for your own drinks/food or buy theirs which is refreshing to say and invaluable after a hard days sight seeing to come home to a cold drink! Also the vendor stocking soft drinks, chocolate and beers/wine/mixers etc was really handy (although a little expensive)
We asked if we needed to book the restaurant, reception said it would be best, yet there was only one other diner when we got there and it was quite expensive and not a great menu. I'd give that a miss to be honest! Breakfast was also expensive at 14euro, so we passed on that too. Supermarket round the corner was well stocked and cheap, but only discovered the last day. Décor etc was all very good, clean and fresh looking, generally a really good hotel and we had a great stay

A bit put off by outside appearance with neon light/arrow but surprisingly spacious living area / kitchen and comfortable enough beds. We were on ground level which meant extra noise level as everyone slammed the fron door on leaving and had a few conversations on the landing so I suggest don't get a ground level apartment if possible. All in all, ideal for a family or group of friends to share ( 4 beds in 2 rooms)
Prenzlauer Berg is Berlin's premier café district, and the trendiest address in town. Scarred in the war and left untouched during communist rule, buildings have now been renovated and property values continue to rise. There are weekly street markets on Kollwitzplatz and Helmholtzplatz, and breweries in the Kulturbrauerei and Pfefferberg. The painter Max Liebermann is buried in the Jewish Cemetery.
