My family of four (two kids ages 10 and 13) stayed at the Hyatt for two nights in July. There are definite pros and cons to the hotel.
Pros - it's a Hyatt, so you know what you will get. Modern, corporate, clean. The rooms were very dark and quiet, allowing for a solid night's sleep. The beds were comfy and included duvets. The price was an excellent value for Berlin (our main reason for choosing the Hyatt), and the hotel is within walking distance to the Brandenberg Gate, Holocaust Memorial and the Bundestag.
Cons - only 30 minutes per day of free wifi, which had spotty service. On our three-week trip across Europe, this was the stingiest wifi policy we experienced!
The decor is very modern and feels "masculine" - hard edges, dark fabrics, dark wood, lots of glass. It also has an overly complicated lighting system in the room.
The staff was professional, but cold and impersonal. All business, no warmth!
If we return to Berlin, we would look for a hotel with more local character (less corporate) in a more interesting neighborhood with cafes and shops. The neighborhoods surrounding the Hyatt are extremely corporate, boring and/or empty. The only life around the hotel is a small street of chain restaurants and a large outdoor mall complex. The Hyatt felt like I could have been anywhere in the world because it was that non-descript. If you like the consistency and security of that, however, I'd recommend this hotel.
