If you are interested in staying in Mitte (and I was) this is a fantastic location. The Circus hotel is even closer to the Rosenthaler Platz ubahn stop, but this is only a couple blocks away, not an issue at all.
The rooms are modern and nicely, though sparsely decorated. As indicated in many reviews, the room is designed somewhat uniquely so that the shower is essentially in the room. Basically, the toilet is its own closet, then you have the sink and shower, then a desk, then the bed. It isn't as weird as it sounds, but it might be an issue if you are sharing the room (depending on whom you are sharing it with).
My biggest problem with the room was the rather uncomfortable pillows, which provided no support.
Wireless worked quite well in the rooms, as well as the lobby.
Though some reviews described the front desk as uninterested, they seemed no different than the front desk staff at any hotel.
I didn't take advantage, but the hotel bar is supposedly one of the best hotel bars around, and the rooftop portion has an amazing view of Alexanderplatz.
I would definitely return, especially if traveling solo again. Good value, especially because of the location.
