“Superior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2011

This hotel was superior to most German hotels, in so much that it added exceptional courtesy and friendliness to its list of amenities. This hotel bent over backwards to please its geusts; and it also provided nominal services, like guides, tour ticket purchasing, pertinent advice of various types and genres, and other sundry services that made my stay absolutely perfect. This is a place where luxury meets sincere courtesy, which made it even more pleasent to come back in the evening. Thier rooms are luxurious, yet also comfortable; but the people and the service made it all.

My partner and I stayed here for one night during the easter weekend. We were very impressed; staff were very polite, the rooms were very clean and well-designed and the location was absolutely brilliant. We did a walking tour (Insider Tours - highly reccommended!) and all of the main sights were within comfortable walking distance of the hotel. Also a good choice of restaurants, bars within 15 minutes walk, and plenty of public transport to explore other areas of Berlin. Would definately stay at this hotel again if we returned to the city.

A great hotel, good sized quality rooms, pleasant and friendly staff. I stayed there during April, when Nato had their sumitt next door - all the streets were closed off for Hilary Clinton. Ive stayed in at least 6 other hotels in Berlin Raddison Blu, Intercontinental, Park Inn, Ramada and this is my favourite.

We booked this hotel because of the good reviews it got on TripAdvisor. Perfect location, close to all the sight in Berlin, restaurants were just minutes away. The staff was very nice, spoke very good English, it was quiet, clean. My only complaint is the shower, wasn't the best, the bathroom got all wet every someone took a shower, but that's a minor complaint.

I stayed in a room twin room 521. I found it a little had to find from the U Bahn, but once I found it, it was not that far. Check in and out was good with three quick lifts. The room was very nice, large, clean, modern with nice bath towels. Our room was very quite from outside noise and from other rooms. The hotel has free WiFi internet at a dial up speed for free, but if you want a faster connection it cost a small amount. I got breakfast in the bar area each morning for an extra 7.50 euros. I thought the location was great in between the Brandenburg Gates and the TV tower. I got value for money with this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

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!
