We stayed here for two nights during the World Cup last month. I was a bit worried about some online comments I had read about this hotel being out of the way. While it is located in a quiet neighborhood on the Ku'damn the great German public transport system (Die Bahn) makes this a non-issue.
Its practically across the street from Halansee station so you can get around quite easily. There was also regular bus service right outside the hotel on the Ku'damn.
There are many restaurants and bakeries close-by in walking distance. I would recommend ArayaThai-excellent Thai food just down/across the street and there was also a Greek restaurant that opened late and served huge portions (Sorry I forget the name now). Lots of little bars and shops around as well.
The hotel itself was very cozy. The rooms were a little larger than in other European countries but still not large as in the US. The neighborhood was indeed very quiet. The staff all spoke fairly good English and was helpful and very accommodating. I don't recall the rooms being air-conditioned. We slept with the windows open and that was fine.
The breakfast was quite assorted-sliced meats, bread, eggs, cereal, sausages (of course) & fresh fruit. No complaints here.
I would definitely stay here again or recommend this to someone looking for a quiet hotel in Berlin with some "old world" charm.
