“Superb as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This is the fifth time i have stayed here and as usual it was a very enjoyable experience.
As we were arriving on an early flight i emailed to ask if the room could be ready before the 3pm rule and was delighted when we arrived at 10.30 that we could go straight to the room.
Highlights are the location, breakfast and the staff.
Maybe some more gluten free options at Breakfast could be looked into.
The only down side is no air conditioning but as the temperature was only in the low 20's this was not an issue.
Make sure you check out Simon Dach Strasse, which is only a five minute walk away, for very reasonably priced food and drink.
Will stay here again next time i am in Berlin.

The hotel is in a neighborhood (Friedrichshain) that although not in the tourist center, is located near mass transit points that connects to most of Berlin in a few minutes. The local community is a progressive place with lots of local bars and restaurants. You feel as if you are in a Berlin neighborhood with locals enjoying their area. The Hotel is well kept. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent. I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Buy a sandwich from the local restaurant across the street 'La Escalera'. Good people.

Me and three friends stayed here for 4 nights and we can't complain. The staff we all very helpful and pleasant, we didn't speak very good German but thankfully the staff at reception spoke very good English so communication was not a problem. The rooms are basic but had everything we needed and they were very clean. Breakfast was great, a few times we came back from the local clubs at 6.30am just as the breakfast was being served up, it was all very laid back and they had a great selection on offer. Some gym equipment is available too and we took advantage of this though the sauna temperature could have been higher. As for the location, we found it was perfect for us. Lots of shops, bars and nice restaurants nearby and plenty of clubs to choose from if that's your thing, including Berghain. The train station was a 5 minute stroll down the road and you're only three stops out from the centre of Berlin. Also nearby is a large and impressive section of the Berlin wall, I know some people have mentioned the large amount of graffiti in the area but you should really look at it as 'street art' as majority of it is really impressive. To sum it up, the hotel is perfectly located, not far from transport links and local area is very fascinating.

Not the nicest part of town with lots of graffiti etc but no security issues.Hotel itself was hot/no aircon but very helpful staff provided us with a fan.Clean, extremely good value for money.Breakfast better than most 5 star hotels (I live out of my suitcase for work at many of these so-called 5star hotels). Only issue was the lack of free wifi.In the 21st century this should be free and ubiquitous? (However, free wifi available in lounge).Overall very good value for money

We spent 4days in Berlin. This hotel was great to getting around the city very close to all the transport systems.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful.
The buffet breakfast was very good mostly continental but plentiful.
There are some fantastic restaurants in the neighbourhood only a short walk away
Would go back again and finish the sights we did not have time to see.

We got a last-minute deal for this hotel, when our original lodging plans for our family vacation to Berlin fell through. The hotel and the room was comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was really nice with plenty of choices for the whole family. The area around the hotel is a mixture of run down and just getting fixed up. The hotel location is fine, with a nice park just outside, but close to the S-Bahn station there are some rougher-looking people hanging out, which was a bit uncomfortable with kids, even if we didn't really have any problems. To avoid this, you can walk or take the street car one stop to the subway stop at Frankfurter Tor, and go downtown that way. Either way, it is just a few stops to go to Alexanderplatz, very convenient. A few blocks east of the hotel is a street with quite a few restaurants, where we had dinner one night. Overall, the hotel was good and the location was fine, and we would consider staying here again.

Location good for sightseeing as hotel close to local train station, maximum 10 minutes walk. However we had great difficulty finding good restaurants in the neighbourhood, and for this reason only, we would stay more central if visiting again. Neighbourhood somewhat run down and lots of graffiti, but we never felt unsafe. Initially we were in in standard double room. These are quite Spartan including no drawers in any of the furniture. Following our protests that we had not got the double bed that we requested, we were upgraded to a better double room (comfort double) which was much improved with much better furnishings and a real double bed. Probably well worth paying the extra to get such a room. Note that they insisted that in Germany, a double bed means two single beds made up as single beds, and just pushed together.
Breakfast was very good with an excellent choice. Reception staff were very friendly and very helpful with enquiries re transport and sightseeing.
Overall and enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Consider paying extra for the better rooms. The additional cost is approximately €20 per night. Noi...
