Got to the hotel from the airport in about 40min and from the first moment the experience was great. Friendly staff at the front desk who checked us in within minutes, gave us directions and told us where to go for a supermarket. Also drinks, beers and snacks are available at the front desk.
The central location puts you within a 20-30min walk to anywhere in the city and the S-bahn station steps from the hotel's door puts you anywhere in berlin within minutes.
The hotel is very clean and new, the room was small but seemed to have been refurbished recently. The furniture seemed brand new and the bathroom was very modern and clean. For its price this is an excellent hotel.
The guest kitchen was very handy to cook a meal or have breakfast and was barely being used during our stay (we had it all to ourselves). It is equipped with the essentials to cook just about any meal. A supermarket is about 15min walking from the hotel. Next door to the hotel is a small restaurant that serves a good, german, well priced meal for those who don't want to cook.
Only downside I could say is the "adult nighttime activities" along oranienburger strasse further down from the hotel, but this was not at all an issue for us and the area seemed very safe regardless.
All things considered this is a great place for a comfortable, budget weekend trip to berlin....
