We stopped at this hotel for a short break in Berlin in June. Firstly, the location is perfect for the eastern quarter of Berlin, 3 minutes from Check point Charlie - an interesting museum that's worth a visit 12.50 euros per person. The hotel is well located for quality shops and fine dining - around15 minute walk to the trendy riverside restaurants. Try Berliner Republik (the beer bourse bar - where beer prices work like the stock market - interesting ) good selection of typical german dishes plus excellent range of salads. Beer obviously superb!!!
Back to the hotel - we were lucky to be upgraded to a suite - premium room! Not sure why but it was great. Lovely room, extremely comfortable queen size bed, walk in shower etc. Also, Malongo Coffee Machine - nice touch! Breakfast was excellent - usual cereal, fruit, hot and cold choices too numerous to mention. Staff were delightful, very friendly and helpful and made you feel extremely welcome.
This is a good choice for Berlin - getting out and about further afield is no problem - its around 5 minute walk to the nearest UBahn station.
When you arrive at your chosen airport its a good idea to buy City Tour Card - 18 euros for 48 hours which covers ALL public transport and gets you up to 25% discount on tourist attractions.
Berlin is a fantastic city on foot also, lots to see and do. I personally felt relaxed and safe amongst a very friendly population.
Don't forget to take a comfy pair of shoes - you will need them!
Enjoy your stay in Berlin!
