This hotel is far better than reviews would have you believe. The rooms are light and airy and the breakfast buffet is lavish in a lovely setting. We had a junior suite and the square footage must have exceeded 500 square feet. The building has character and history behind it....in 1943 it was the site of the famous Rosentrasse demonstration. The location is perfect.....one block from the S-Bahn and three blocks from the Alexander Platz. A wonderful value in a remarkable city. .
