We chose the hotel because of its location and were not disappointed. On a relatively quiet back street, it is only about 3 minutes walk from Checkpoint Charlie and 5 minutes walk from the u-bahn stations Statmitte and Kochstrasse. These give very easy access across Berlin. We found travel day tickets good value at 6 euros for unlimited travel all day on trams, u bahn, s bahn and buses. The automatic ticket sales machines all have English translation but do not take 50 euro notes, so make sure you have 20, 10 notes, or coins.
We were pleased to be given an automatic upgraded room on arrival, to an apartment from the superior room we'd booked. It included a microwave and coffee machine. Wifi was free and unproblematic. We decided not to have breakfast included as this option seemed rather expensive, although the out-door tables in the courtyard looked tempting. Instead, within 5 minutes walk of the hotel were two bakeries, two supermarkets, two Italian restaurants, one French restaurant and a Vietnamese cafe.
A big bonus in the hotel was the very helpful, friendly and professional reception staff, providing a much warmer welcome than in most of the hotels we visited in this trip to Germany.
