It's important to start this off with, remember how much you paid for this hotel compared to other hotels in the area (generally 1/2 of what the rest are).
If you don't speak some German it could make it a little difficult to communicate as it didn't seem that English was prevalent.
Check in was really smooth, the rooms were nicer than they looked in the pictures on the website.
They also had a computer to use if you didn't have one (more about this in a minute), a room with a pool table and ability to buy beer and drinks from a vending machine (it's a nice place to hang out with friends), Breakfast is 5 Euros each and a good selection of meats, cereals, breads, fruits, teas, coffee, juices and you can squeeze oranges which are provided if you want fresh juice. Parking is free and to get to the S-Bahn you have two choices...walk about 1.6 kilometers or catch the bus around the corner. Only catch to the bus is that if you are getting something like a group pass you need to get it at the Train Station. So if you are staying for multiple days, make sure you get all of the passes you need and take the bus to and from the station. it's a nice walk if you go by foot.
Internet, as others have mentioned, it's spotty. The first night the wireless was showing up, but no one could connect to it. We spoke to the the next morning and then it was working the rest of the trip. Depending on which room you are in, you might get a great signal or no signal at all. depends where your at in the hotel. Should work in the lobby and in the lounge where the pool table is.
For the price, this is a great place to stay. We'll be staying here again the next time we are in Berlin!
