If it's an offer, take it. But paying full price for this hotel seems silly to me.
Everything felt like it was halfway there... The decor is attractive; there's a nice spa at the roof, and a seeming fancy vegetarian restaurant.
But then you look a bit deeper and it gets awkward. The room is bare as it gets. There's not even a tv. The bathroom is very pretty, but the door is a sheet of glass that barely closes, so unless you're a married couple who don't mind listening to each other's "private moments," you're in for an awkward-fest.
The restaurant service at breakfast was one of the worse I've experienced in years of Berlin, and the food is discount supermarket level. I'm not a foodie, and this bothered even me.
Sleeping was also a bad experience. The bed was uncomfortable and noisy, every time my SO moved, I woke up. There was some kind of incredibly loud, low frequency engine sound that went on all night, non stop. And this is a spa?!?
The rooftop spa was actually not bad, the sauna was lovely and all natural light, and the music was pleasant. But again, just BARE. Atmosphere is not a strength of these guys.
Overall, I would say it's a pretty mediocre experience; not awful, just disappointing. It was a nice getaway for me and my fiancée, but by all means don't expect a high end experience. But this place needs A LOT of work before calling itself a relaxing spa.
