My wife and I stayed at the hotel for five nights in early November and it was an excellent choice. We managed to locate the hotel quite easily (many thanks to fussweh for his excellent directions), it is in a very quiet, residential location. Our first floor room was clean and comfortable. The self catering facilities were quite basic (even Heston Blumenthal would struggle with a microwave, pot, two large spoons and a whisk!). We tended to eat out so it was no big deal for us.
The two free bottles of beer and water each day were a nice touch. I'm not a big fan of Becks beer but it was a godsend on arrival after a long day's travelling, I doubt the first one even touched the sides! The breakfast each morning was very good. I rarely have a cooked breakfast and the continental choice was excellent with a wide choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, meats, cheeses etc.
The hotel staff were also excellent, we found them friendly, chatty and very professional. A special thank you to the young lady with the glasses at reception (sorry, we didn't catch your name), she went out of her way to assist us when we had trouble accessing and printing our return boarding cards, a nice touch, thanks.
We didn't feel the hotel was in the least remote, it was an easy stroll to the tram, which were very frequent, and 10 minutes later we were in the city centre. We found it an ideal location. The Netto supermarket at the bottom of the street was also very handy (cheap but excellent beer and wine).
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and in Berlin and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to other travellers. We made an excellent choice, it was very good value for money and we will definitely stay there if visiting Berlin again in the future.
