“Fantastic location, great food, very comfortable lodgings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

I couldn't believe the location of this hotel. Within a 5-minute walk you can reach all of the best museums in Berlin. Three-minutes in the other direction takes you to the Hackescher Markt train station, which gives easy access to the rest of the city. As other reviewers have noted, there are many, many restaurants in this area, with all types of food and in a variety of price ranges. Berlin is a great walking city, and you will feel very comfortable in this neighborhood. Our family loved the breakfasts which in addition to a buffet of German breads, smoked salmon, six types of jams, croissants, cheeses and meats, also offered eggs of various types made to order, as well as expresso drinks made to order. The breakfast room was staffed by one waitress only. I have no idea how she maintained such good cheer and efficiency. She knew us by the second day, and just checked in to make sure we wanted "our usual coffee drinks." The staff at the front desk are friendly and helpful in ordering cabs and wake-up calls and giving directions to anywhere you might want to go. I did not find them saavy about restaurant advice, but this is a minor quibble. We found the wi-fi uneven. In fact, our original room could not get wi-fi reception at all (at least not with my computer). The staff initially thought they could solve the problem by rebooting the router, but when that didn't work, a more senior staff member explained that some rooms in the hotel were too far away for the wi-fi to reliably work. At that point, we asked to switch rooms. Nothing was available that day, but we were upgraded to a suite the following day for the remainder of our stay at no extra charge. We had deliberately booked rooms that opened up onto the courtyard, as their is a tramline that stops on the street side of the hotel. The courtyard rooms are more expensive, but worth it. Also be sure to realize that "a double" at this hotel means a double bed and not twin beds. European designations can sometimes be confusing for Americans as it was for us. This hotel would not be good for someone with mobility issues as there is a small flight of stairs up to the reception area. The rooms were of comfortable size, with large bathrooms, and plenty of hotwater and other amenities. The building is newish. It's a small hotel (maybe 20 rooms) which contributes to it's friendly feel. By the way, there were fans in the bedrooms, which made me think that the hotel might not have air conditioning in the individual rooms. We traveled in August, but it was quite cool (temperatures ranged from the 50s at night to the low 70s during the day). We enjoyed opening the windows in the evening for fresh breeze. No problems with insects.

Room Tip: Choose courtyard rooms to avoid street noise. Also, during the summer time, pick a higher floor, if...

Easy to get to from Hackescher Mkt railway station. Good location to many tourist sites eg Museum Island, shops and cafes. Great fresh and wholesome breakfast. Reception staff very helpful. WIFI excellent, although if left idle for sometime you need to re log in every time.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard avoid street noise. No air conditioning, is a major problem in summer as...

stayed for two nights in a Suite, which offers separate sleeping areas, nice for friends. The central location near Hackescher Markt is perfect for any trip to Berlin. The breakfast was ok, but nothing extraordinary, the capuccino machine was broken, two days in a row, too bad, They offer nespresso in the Lobby anytime though! Nice roomy bathroom, sofabed OK, but not the most comfortable. Front desk staff was very friendly and. helpful, kept our luggage on the first and last day. Overall, a very good stay!

We stayed here in a very snowy February and you could not ask for a better hotel. Just round the corner from the train station and a very lively Irish Bar. Great location for sight seeing in the day( by jumping on & off the train), and excellently located for the various bars and restaurants of a night. Plenty of shops in this area also and a good club called am/pm which didn't close.
Would consider returning in the summer as there are a variety of bars/ cafes that you could sit outside and "people watch". don't think you could get a better located hotel.

The location just around the corner from the Hackescher Markt and it's S-bahn station is very convenient to this part of town, which is our favorite part of Berlin. Many restaurants within easy reach (see my other reviews from Berlin) and easy access to other parts of the city.

We had three rooms for me and my husband, my parents and his parents and they were all fine if perhaps a little small. The breakfast was very nice but displayed in a spread out and a little confusing way. I would stay there again.

The Hotel is located close to Alexanderplatz and a host of other attractions. Just a few minutes walk from the train station.
The Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a buffet style and I thought it was particularly good. It will really set you up for the day.
The room was warm and clean if a bit small. The other slight misgiving I had was that if you get a room at the front of the hotel, the passing trams can be a bit noisy.

Room Tip: If you want more peace, try not to get a room at the front of the hotel.Maybe also go for a bigger r...

A clean and businesslike hotel. Breakfasts were excellent: a range of ham, fish, eggs, fruit, breads, different teas, good coffee etc, all fresh and served until 10:30am which was good. Breakfast was included in our room price.
Staff were helpful and printed out details of local places of interest.
The location is very good: easy walking distance to Alexander Platz, Unter Den Linden, Museum island. Lots of local restaurants.

We booked an Executive Suite on the Courtyard side, but when we arrived at 10:30pm, we were informed it wasn't ready and they put us in a "Normal" room on the street side (405). This was very small indeed: only just space to edge around the double bed, and the bed was against one wall. The next day we asked to move, and the room available was 306, which I think is an Executive Double. This was much better: space to move around the bed, and on the courtyard side.
So all was well that ended well. They responded promptly to our request to move rooms, and we got a satisfactory room (though not the one we booked).

The reason why I've given it 3 stars rather than more is because the way the bed was made up meant there was a rubberised mattress cover right underneath the bed sheet. As a result the bed was very hot and clammy, and quite uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms on Courtyard side are quieter. "Normal" rooms are very small.
