I found the John F very suitable for tourists who are out most of the day and an excellent value for the price. The buffet breakfast is nicely presented and features the customary meats, cheeses, cereals, pastries, etc but does not offer omelets or waffles. Dinners were well prepared and better than usually found in similar hotels. Rooms were remarkably quiet. No outside or hallway noise penetrated.

At first sight John F is little far from city. That´s not true. Walk a while and you are in Alexanderplatz - and Bus Stop is very very near. Location is great! Hotel is quite cheap and breakfast wonderful. Take it! Staff is polite and helpful... Absolutely perfect hotel.

Room tip: No tip, our room is OK

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and the location is perfect. 4 minutes walk to the nearest underground station made the city accessible, essential for our short stay. The staff were polite and attentive. The beds were so comfortable and the room was spacious. The only downside to this hotel would be the mini bar snacks. There were two outside the mini bar which had no price on them so we thought they were complementary. Not that I minded paying but it would have been better if they were placed with all the other items and with a price. Other than that it was a lovely hotel and good value for money, great location and kind staff.

Room tip: Floor 6 was so quiet, we heard nothing from anyone else.

Great location, close to most of the popular tourist spots, walking distance to the Berlin Dom, the Museum Island and various other attractions . The staff was friendly and very helpful. On enquiring on various transport options to Potsdam, Airport etc. they were very helpful in looking up the times with various connections and also providing me with a printout on these. The room was surprisingly spacious and equipped with a small kitchenette. I would most certainly recommend this hotel.
