I stayed in this hotel for a week in December 2013. The location was good 2-3min walk to U2 and U6 Underground stations that have direct connections to major stations allowing ease of access around Berlin. Walking distance to most attractions even just 30min walk from Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, Topographie of Terror, Checkpoint Charlie, Museum Island.
The hotel is very basic, the staff friendly the rooms were clean and serviced daily. I had pre-ordered online a Berlin WelcomeCard including Museum Island that cost 36 euros. But no one knew anything about this so it was very disappointing to have wasted the money.
The Lowenbrau Hotel provided breakfast daily from 12euros and the food was from Bavaria - very nice with a great atmosphere.
For me the biggest disappointment was the very poor Wifi. I needed access for work they charge 10 euros for 2 hours and you have to sit in the Lowenbrau Hotel next to the hotspot to get any coverage. Access in the room was non existent. I was in room 217 so if you're looking for WIFI access avoid the 2nd floor. I was directed me to Potzdamer Platz 30min walk for free WIFI, when I found Starbucks around the corner was much closer.
If you're looking for piece and quiet then the 2nd floor is a good option. I would give this hotel 2.5 stars.
