We chose this hotel based on its location. About ten minute’s walk from Friedrich Street Station, a thirty minute walk from Hopbanhof (Berlin’s main station), fifteen minutes’ walk from museum island, 30 minutes walk to Brandenburg Tor, and the U6 stop for Orainienburger Tor on the doorstep. This was perfect for backpackers arriving by ICE and planning to use public transport and walking to get around Berlin, which is a bit of a spread-out city lacking a city centre.
There is a Turkish kebab shop downstairs (get the doner box, yum) and multiple other food options around, including subway and a supermarket on Tor Street. However, the closest Laundromat is about 20 minutes’ walk away, so we didn’t bother.
The hotel itself is very basic, everything just ok. Beds were ok, linen ok. Not great. We had a cheaper room with a separate toilet outside the room that we had to keep locked, which was a major pain. Would be worth spending a little more to avoid this inconvenience.
