For the price we paid, this was a really nice hotel, clean and modern, and in a nice part of town. We stayed for a week to do a city break seeing the sights in Berlin, and for this purpose it was fine. I did wonder, if the hotel is more geared-up to the needs of business people rather than tourists though.
A few things I do feel need to be improved:
1) The breakfast quality was lacking. The fruit juices are dire, and they were frequently running-out of things like croissants, rolls and bread. The hotel is very busy, and there were not enough seats for guests at breakfast time.
2) There is no milk in the room for making tea and coffee and there is no safe in the room.
3) The room had no drawers or cupboards for storage, which is more important if you are staying for several nights.
Apart from these things, there were lots of good points, the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The toiletries in the bathroom were nice, and the room was very well soundproofed. We did not hear the trains. The U-Bahn is very close by, which makes the hotel convenient for getting anywhere in Berlin.
Other tips for tourists:
1) Buy a 7 day travel ticket from one of the machines at the airport when you arrive. You can then use this for your transfer into the city centre, and also for unlimited travel on buses, U-Bahn, S Bahn and trams
2) Capones, and El Dorado are nice restaurants on the ku'damm just round the corner from the hotel.
3) Topography of Terror, and the Berlin Wall Memorial are free to see, and very informative. Checkpoint Charlie is a bit tacky, and the museum is expensive, and very hot! It is well worth a visit to the disused Tempelhof airport.
