Chose this hotel for it's price and the availability of a triple room. It is in an excellent location, with boutiques and restaurants nearby and right next to the U-bahn and S-bahn stations. Despite this, we never heard a single train. This may have been because the hotel is so enormous! The weather was freezing but the hotel was warm and the staff (like all the people of Berlin) were incredibly helpful. The wifi connection was brilliant, too, and there were computers available for use in reception.
Although the room was simple, it was all you needed and was exceptionally clean. The beds and pillows were amazingly comfy! My only drawbacks were the lack of storage space - only a wardrobe so we had to keep all of our clothes in our suitcases, and the shower was annoying as you had to continuosly turn it back on as it was a push-button, which made washing your hair a nightmare! This is however to keep the wastage of water to a minimum and reduce the carbon footprint, so I dealt with it!
The only other problem was that we had a group staying opposite us who made SO much noise one night we couldn't sleep. The walls are quite thin and though usually it's not a problem, you will hear people in high heels clopping down the corridor at 4am when they return home.
The swimming pool and sauna were also lovely; the swimming pool was freezing but the sauna was welcome after a freezing day in the centre!
We wandered out every night to a different cafe and bar, there is so much in the area to do in the evening and during the day it is so easy and quick to get to the sites.
