I stayed again at this hotel because of the location. I had stayed here before for work and again I had to be a lot at Potsdamer Platz, which is easy to reach from the B&B Hotel.
For public transport, this is a great location. The Ubahn-stops Kurfursterstrasse and Bulowstrasse are very nearby, and a few busses (also going to Alexanderplatz and Hauptbahnhoff) stop almost in front of the hotel. But the area itself is not that special. There are little dining options and it's also still a bit shady, with strip clubs and girls hustling the streets. I did not feel unsafe, even being a woman travelling alone, but some people might not like the atmosphere. Not really an area to take your kids at night for sure!
The rooms are very well equipped with good beds.
The key system I still do not like. You get a code you can use to get into your room. You also use this code to enter the hotel after eleven at night when the receptionist leaves. But you get this little paper to take with you, and that's it. Feels a bit strange. The upside is that you don't have to wait in line to check out and hand in your key. You just walk out with your suitcase.
Wifi is for free, but -as it was on my first stay here- very, very slow at times.
If I could get a good deal, I would maybe stay again, but only if I had to be at Potsdamer Platz again. If you want to explore the city, there are far nicer areas to stay.
