At Louisa's Place, I got the feeling of home. One of the great experiences i've had at hotels in Europe was at LP.
Two beautiful ladies at the reception that always offered a smile, Ms Jennifer and Ms Linda. They made sure that our stay was a comfortable one as I was with my wife and 3 boys.
Also the gentlemen at the reception did not hesitate to offer any help when needed (sorry I didnt get your names guys).
Facilities offered at the hotel were a plus as the swimming pool was fairly sized for a short leisure swim with the kids during weekends, when everything is closed.
Housekeeping was a breeze, they came in and cleaned the two bedroom suite in no-time.
As for shopping and restaurants, they are minutes away. You can reach the main shopping district by bus (a few stops away) or by foot in 25 minutes. For grocery head to Edeka Adenauerplatz (less than a 5 min walk) or Lidl (around 15 minutes walk).
Overall, i would call my hotel choice in Berlin a success.
