We stayed there with my colleagues in 2015 during our first visit in Berlin. The hotel itself has a great location - it's not far from the central part of Berlin (Brandenburger Tor is in 15-20 minutes of walking). The building itself might remind somebody from Russia an atmosphere of his/her home town - it's an interesting but weird feeling...

Room for wheelchair with a very large bathroom. Bed comfortable. Nice garden with a lot of little places where you can drink or eat. Staff very friendly. Near from accessible transports (tram, S.Bahn and U.Bahn) Restaurant a little expensive but good.

We have visited many hotels in Berlin in recent years and we really like it here. It's very clean and modern with huge fabulous black and white photos of the Berlin Wall in the past on the corridor walls and in the room. The breakfasts were very good but the big plus point is how friendly and welcoming the staff...

We stayed here for a few days at the end of June and would rate it as just "ok." Compared to other European hotels in the same price range, it is somewhat newer and has modern furniture.

This hotel is very unique in many respects - the most important one is, that this hotel is basically an NGO, so it's run by the neighboring church as a non-for-profit venture. 85% of the staff is from the "differently abled" sphere - so people, who are e.g. physically challenged and have otherwise difficulties to find a regular job. As...

Our walking group of eight English pensioners stopped here for a rest as we were weary from sightseeing on a hot day and needed refreshment. The hotel has a pavement bistro rather too close to traffic on Ackerstrasse and litter bins. It offers three outside tables best described as English pub garden style with bench seats attached either side of...

Dear JohnHowardNorfolk, Thank you very much for taking your time to write a review of your visit in our Bistro. Please be aware that the place you have visited is not our hotel.

I arrived at this hotel around 10:30 AM after a very challenging trans-atlantic flight, a layover in Frankfurt and a delay in departing Frankfurt due to mechanical issues. Needless to say I was exhausted, but needed to be at a conference that already had started. Check-in however, starts officially at 2:00 pm. As I explained my situation the two lovely...

Had a great time in the hotel - did even extend our stay because we loved it so much. Kids enjoyed the garden whilst parents preferred the views from the penthouse. European breakfast with varying offers and custom made pancakes/scrambled eggs or bacon. Kids are always welcome.

If this hotel is one thing, then that is unique. The concept is the integration of people with handicaps - so some of your staff will have difficulties speaking or other challenges. The enthusiasm these people display sets this hotel clearly apart from "normal" hotels: Everybody is just so proud to work here and is uber-friendly. It is really a...

Very nice hotel very well located in Berlin. Nice clean and large rooms. They have a very good breakfast buffet. The staff is very helpful. Value for money. The menu of the restaurant is a bit limited.
