“Great Location and priced Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2011

Great hotel for a short break rooms very nice and within 10 mins walking distances of all the major sights of Berlin. Can particularley recommend the cafe/bistro behind the hotel for breakfasts ( Chipps was the name). Large beds very comfortable. I will certainley stay here again. Staff were extremley helpful booking us tickets to the TV tower saving us 2 hours of queing.

This was my second hotel from Arcotel chain. I could say that both hotel were nice example of good service and good accommodation.
John F has interior that goes with a city of Berlin. It's modern, but comfortable. With many nice details but nothing is over the top.
Reception guys were absolutely fantastic. Very helpful but not "too pleasant" or with fake smiles which I don't like. They gave us free upgrade which was nice gesture, so we got very nice superior room on a 6th floor.
My only remark is that I would expect a little bit bigger room if it's superior, but I can't complain since I got it for free. Maybe I would be a little bit disappointed with size if I would pay higher rate. One more thing - fitness room should have a little bit more equipment. Sauna and steam room were very nice and always empty.
Location is fantastic!

We stayed there for 2 nights in the middle of feburary. It was a nice trip to Berlin. Very friendly and outgoing staff. It was one of the best Hotels at our europe trip. We enjoyed the beautiful surrounding area. Also recommendable is a drink in the TOWN Bar.

Very nice people - a great city and a perfect hotel = a good holiday feeling

I decided to take my husband to Berlin on a city break for his Christmas present and chose to stay in the John F. the reveiws were good and the location seemed excellent. We were not disappointed. Such a great location. The hotel was well furnished and the bed was so good, i cannot remember ever sleeping so well, even in my own bed! We forgot to take our" do not disturb" sign down in our rush to get out, so when we returned late afternoon we realised our room had not been touched. This was our own fault so we said nothing. We went out for dinner and when we got back to our room, it had been made up. We did not think anyone saw us leave the hotel, but they must of checked and then did our room. This was a pleasant suprise! The breakfast was included in my booking and we had read that some people thought it expensive. We do not know the cost, but it was superb. Fresh, hot and a great choice and really set us up for the day. One thing i did like, instead of all of this horrible piped music, we had bird song. sounds a bit mad, but it was so relaxing whilst eating breakfast. We intend to return to Berlin in December and will definately be going back to the John F.

Stayed here on a short city break with my Dad. This was a real find. The location is great, central but quiet. It's all very trendy, and probably more suited to a younger crowd, but we were made very welcome in the hotel. The doorman, in particular, was really helpful in making sure we caught the correct train to the airport.

The rooms are nice, again, quite "cool", but not so avant-garde as to be daft. Berlin is an incredibly interesting (and overlooked) city. And this is a great place from which to see it.

We booked this hotel based on the rates on offer and the many positive reviews it has received. We were not disappointed.

The room was very comfortable with a touch of understated luxury. The bed was easily the best we have experienced in a long time. We also liked the bathroom: we prefer a good shower, like the one on offer, over a bath. Finally, the room had a dedicated fridge (separate from the mini-bar) which was a nice touch. The only odd thing about the room was a rather useless kitchenette: a stove top, but no microwave, pots or pans, cooking utensils, cutlery or crockery. This space would be more useful as additional wardrobe space: the existing wardrobe was smallish for a 4-night stay for two people.

Our rate included breakfast. This was a good choice because breakfast was plentiful, very good quality and good value-for-money. Due to the location of the hotel there are no obvious "outside" breakfast options in the immediate vicinity.

Hotel staff were efficient and friendly.

The location of the hotel is more or less in an office area, next door to the foreign office buildings. This does mean that the immediate surroundings of the hotel are very quiet (some people might say "dead") after hours and in the weekend. However, public transport connections are good (bus stop in front, U-bahn only 5 minutes away). Also, the hotel is within walking distance of the Museum Island, Unter den Linden and Friedrichstrasse (all within 10 minutes). This proved to be extremely convenient.

All-in-all we had an excellent stay and have no problems recommending this hotel.

One note: it would appear there is going to be a lot of construction in the area in coming years (U-bahn, City Palace reconstruction, etc). To avoid any noise try to get a room overlooking the courtyard rather than the street.

Very friendly staff. Good sized, very clean room. Super location, near to lots of attractions. Lovely sauna and steam room. Brilliant nights sleep in a very quiet room. Only slight criticism is that there are two small duvets to fit the bed rather than one big one. Very nice shower. Good internet with printer at the back of the bar. Not much more to say except it was a great place to stay.
