Lovely hotel, wonderful staff. There are a number of hotels in the area but I liked this one best because the building itself has the old world charm. We took the room for apartment-use, right on the river.with a kitchenette which was so useful. Had breakfast in the room mostly and at times even a light dinner with the wonderful stuff bought from the supermarket on Fisherinsel, about 100m from the hotel. The location is incredible! Turn right from the main exit of the hotel and you're in Spittlemarkt in a minute. If you're in Berlin for a few days this is the place to stay.....from here you can walk all over. We were there for a whole week and got an ABC travel pass. There is the U-bahn just outside, buses 147 to Gendarmenmarkt, Cafe Einstein, Unter den Linden, and lots more place, and 265 to Eastern Gallery and Oberbaumbruecke and to Treptower Park which shouldn't be missed, and many more buses - just consult the net for each destination. To and from the airport was a breeze by the S and U Bahn, RE7 and U2 The wifi worked perfectly well and was a boon. Had breakfast just once...it was perfectly adequate. Limited variety but very good.

For those interested in spa facilities (we are not), the sister hotel opposite may be taken avail of for computer services as well (and the staff there are equally wonderful). Since we did not use the spa services I am unable to rate them, but I have no doubt it is good judging by everything else.

In short, loved it!!

Room Tip: We were there during the easy months and had absolutely no issue with the corner room facing the riv...

it was very nice to stay at the hotel, the workers are very plesent and nice, the hotel in clean and the greatest thing is that the U station is just across the street, 20 meters from the hotel!
breakfast is a bit expensive but there's a super market 100 meters from the hotel

First impressions of the hotel were good, just across the road from the U bann station (berlin has a great public transport network) and if you want to walk to Alexanderplatz is within easy reach by foot.

The room was clean and a good size as was the bathroom and the beds were really comfy. We had a seperate kitchen area which was quite useful and i thought the daily free beer was a nice touch. We had no issues with the free wifi in the room and the staff were friendly and helpful.

This probably isnt a typical 4 star hotel however for the price, the location and the room you get i think this is a great little hotel and i would not hesitate to stay here again, i throughly enjoyed it!

Location of the hotel is quite good, only 20-30 metres to the U-Bahn Station "Maerkisches Museum". Easily accessed by the metro line U2. By the way, since Berlin has a great underground+train system for public transport, any hotel near any S-bahn or U-bahn stop where you don't need to go more than 10 stops to the Alexanderplatz, Hauptbahnhof or Postdamer Platz is o.k. Don't pay more to some hotels which are located just at the heart of the city centre.
The room size is o.k. for 2 people. The room and the hotel premises were clean and the personnel were helpful. The kitchenette in the room is very useful, the complimentary beverages are nice.

Heating is a bit old, it was not the most effective heater I have seen. You may experience some problems if you aren't immune to cold. The furniture is quite old. Bath is classic style without cabin. Instead it has simple curtains. The shower head in our room was not functioning properly but somehow it was o.k. for us since we stayed only for two days. The neighbourhood around the hotel was not noisy, so no red alert for those who hate noise.
Free wi-fi is a plus although weak.
Finally, the dominant color inside the room is dark brown, which is not so pleasant.

Positives - the hotel is perfectly positioned for walking into the city centre and for accessing the public transport system. From leaving the room you could be at the Potsdamer Platz within minutes. The room itself had good facilities. The kitchenette was very useful as was the trouser press and the free movie channels on the TV. The free beer and water was a very welcome touch.
The Indian restaurant in the hotel offers great food at reasonable prices.

Negatives - the rooms are geting a little tired. The bath and net curtains were slightly mnarked and some of the fittings were a little dirty. However, the main problem was the noise from the road. As the windows were not sound-proofed the sound of cars and trams could be quite loud which prevented us from leaving the window open.

Overall, this hotel offers good valuable for money and a great location for a short break in Berlin. I would definitely consider it next time I visit Berlin.

Room Tip: Consider the sound-proof of the windows and whether the room overlooks a busy road.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. It is easy to get to from the airport (SXF) and right opposite a metro station. It's also easy to reach Alexanderplatz by foot. The rooms are clean and spacious enough, they offer 2 bottles of beer and 2 of water on the house every night as well as tea and coffee.
The lifts weren't working on the first day, that didn't bother us much as we were on the 1st floor but I guess it could be a problem for other people. Also on the second day, there was a "water accident" which left us without water until about 12pm and finally on the last day, the toilets downstairs weren't working. These things didn't affect us that much and it's hard to tell if it was only our bad luck or something that happens all the time.
The staff was pleasant and helpful. This hotel provided what we expected for a city break.

Very cute hotel in pseudo-historical building on the riverside!
Advantages - location (can walk to st Nicolas), close to bus station and subway, cute but small room (we got room on 4 floor with bath tube), rooms have small kitchen, oven, dishes, free fast wifi
Disadvantages - was a bit cold in the room in April 2013 (it was snow and strong wind in Berlin that time)

Stayed April 2013, travelled as a couple
