=> General: Pleasant enough for a short stay. The room was well laid out, especially the work desk and the bathroom. The bed was comfy, and the linens were very clean and seemed quite new. The Wake-Up call system worked well. The food on the breakfast buffet was quite tasty, although I agree that, for EUR 14, there are better options nearby - specifically, at the shopping mall “Der Clou” and at some of the cafes between the hotel and “Der Clou”. The mall is right over the U6 U-Bahn entrance, so you can get anywhere in Berlin for EUR 2,60.
=> Pluses: (1) Location - from Tegel Airport (past Gate A0), it's only EUR 1,50 for Bus 128, which in 10 mins stops at Karl Schumacher Platz (right in front of “Der Clou” shopping mall). (2) Location - the mall “Der Clou” is right over the U6 U-Bahn entrance, so you can get anywhere in Berlin for EUR 2,60. (3) Location - “Der Clou” has many stores/cafes, incl great Thai/Vietnamese food and a pizza bar, a fine German deli, and a full-scale electronics store, plus boutiques and hairstyling (in case someone needs to get dressed up).
=> Issues: (1) Poor info for finding the hotel, which is not visible from the bus stop. Pass clockwise around “Der Clou”, head toward the Aral gas station going left down its side street, and see the “Dorint” sign high on the building on the right. (2) Climate control was OK - but the staff were “cold” for the whole visit. (3) Internet was a problem - it was not consistently at full strength and quite slow at times: I could not conduct Skype calls well. (4) I was surprised there was no mini-frig to keep cold drinks. (Forget a minibar at hotels with this price point.)
Note: Hotels don't get a "5" just for being in business. If it's "just OK" then I give "just a 3" - especially when the best things about a hotel are off its property!
