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.
