This hotel was perfect. Great location, great staff and lovely rooms.

The full length windows were really nice and make the rooms feel big. The bathroom was also lovely.

In terms of location, this hotel also delivers. Within walking distance of most, if not all major sights.

Plenty of cafes close by for breakfast.

I'll be recommending this hotel to friends.

Good price and a real value for your money. The hotel is in a fun neighborhood with lots going on. You can walk to most of the major tourist attractions, or take nearby public transportation if you choose to go that route. Yet you're also in a bustling neighborhood where locals actually live. The rooms are fairly large by European standards, and the facility is modern and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Skip paying extra for the breakfast - it's cheaper to pay the cafe directly and not through the hotel.

This was our second stay at Arcotel Velvet. We love its location and the ease of getting around the city from here, plus, the hotel has a comfortable, yet stylish ambiance. The staff was welcoming and helped us determine the best way to get where we were going. The rooms we have had have a separate toilet with a sink and an open tub/shower. The towels are oversized and great. We didn't choose to have the breakfast option, as $26/per person seemed high. Instead we grabbed breakfasts at one of the s- or u-Bahn station take away stands and were happy. Do NOT be put off AT ALL by the graffitied-up building next door. In warmer months we've seen artists working and selling their art inside. There are tons of cafés, restaurants and bars and transport is within a very short walk. This is a wonderful hotel in a happening area. The only thing I can say is that the room was warm, which, if we would have called the desk, could have been adjusted.

Room Tip: We like the front-facing rooms. The sound was not a problem, but know it is 100% window (with a drap...

The hotel is really well located. Just 10 minutes walk from Friedrichstrasse railway station and surrounded by a good variety of restaurants.

Rooms are generously proportioned and kept immaculately clean. Front desk staff are pleasant and helpful. Any queries were dealt with efficiently. An arrangement with a nearby restaurant to provide breakfast works well.The buffet is wide ranging and caters to every taste. Staff here are really friendly too.

If we return to Berlin we will definitely stay at the Arcotel Velvet!

It's a good, clean hotel with polite staff in a great spot of Berlin. What I liked is the breakfast - the hotel collaborates with a cafe next to it so the hotel breakfast is served there. I liked it, it's good to see locals at the start of your day and the cafe staff was great too.

Stayed here for several nights for a conference. Asked for a non-smoking room and did not get one one, which made it hard to do my work. No restaurant, so no room service. No coffee machine nor hot pot. They did have a decently stocked snack bar, but with the typical crap at the typical high prices. They do have a contract with a restaurant next door for a breakfast buffet, which costs 17 Euro. I chose to eat healthier and cheaper elsewhere, but they wouldn't comp the costs!

Across the street are several decent restaurants. Do check out the Dada Falafel right across the street. Neighborhood borders on "seedy".

Website was a bit misleading. I almost gave this just one star, but they did have very quiet rooms.

No, if I get a chance to return to Berlin, and I hope I do, this hotel will not be under consideration.
