I'm actually writing this from my room in this hotel right now. Been here a week. Booked this room online mainly because it was so cheap. Paid $48(US) a night. I wasn't expecting much. Wasn't planning to be in the room too much so it wasn't that important. I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Yes, the room is small, but it is very clean. My room also has an outside terrace, which I wasn't expecting. The staff have all been very friendly and helpful, and most of them speak english. Another pleasant surprise was the hotel restaurant, very cozy, and the food is good. The location isn't ideal for sightseeing, the main attractions(Brandenburg, Museum Island, etc.) are about 4 miles away. Very close to Tegal airport, tho.
As most other reviewers have noted, the street noise is an issue. I sleep heavy so didn't bother me. But light sleepers may have a problem with it.
The breakfast was good, but it was an extra charge. I guess with the dicount rate I paid they don't include it. I think if you pay full price for the room it is included. But I can't complain at 50 bucks a night. Wifi is also extra, about 6euro for a 24hr period.
Overall, I am very happy with the hotel. For the price I paid I have to give the highest rating. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a decent hotel at a cheap price, and I will definitely stay here again.
