“Nice location and great hotel, will stay again.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Stayed here 4 nights over a weekend, booked a Superior room and was not disappointed. We knew already that some rooms had a sort of open bathroom solution, with separate room for the toilet. We got a little bigger room with a "normal" bathroom (room 415). When we booked the room we also asked for a quiet room facing the back, which we got. But there wasn't much noise on the front of the hotel. The room was clean, good bed, good shower and nice big windows. The free WiFi was also a nice service, but it can be a little slow late at night when everyone is in their room surfing.

Oranienburger Strasse is a street with with all you need, many cafes and restaurants, bars, falafel and döner kebab, pharmacies and a couple of kiosks. Right next door is a nice place for breakfast, Berlin Theke. And a little longer down is two other nice places for breakfast, Oranium and Orange. All of them reasonable priced.

The hotel is close to almost everything, it's a short walk to Unter den Linden, and it's not far to Alexanderplatz, there's the Tram right outside, U-bahn right around the corner and S-bahn 100m down the street.

Room Tip: It's a cheap hotel, pay extra for the Superior room.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the velvet. Great location, friendly and accommodating staff on arrival and our 3 nights. Modern Room overlooking oranienburger st was quiet with large window for light. Bed comfortable, small TV and wifi worked at good speed throughout our stay. Bathroom area with curtain was unusual in design and could have used a non transparent curtain. Staff supportive as they could talk English and helped with places to eat, directions, stamps, bike hire, train tickets and any other questions ,so don't hesitant to ask. Was recommended this hotel by a mate and would do the same. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable.

I loved this hotel. It was the first one we stayed in during our trip around Germany, and it was fantastic. The rooms were very sleek and modern, and equipped with air conditioning. The shower was huge, and it was right on the strip with many shops and restaurants. The staff was also great. The airline went on strike and we were going to be without our luggage for awhile, so we had to venture out and buy new clothes. The staff gladly gave us and map and directions on the closest shopping area where we could find clothes and other things we needed. The bar downstairs is also nice, and equipped with free wifi. I was sad to go!

Great location in the Mitte area of Berlin! Here you will find lots of bars and restaurants, and within ten minutes you can walk to the Monbijou area and find even more great restaurants and shopping.
Quite close to everything and the underground station is right outside the Hotel.
Good service and modern rooms, allthough not quite a four star hotel. We stayed four nights, and had a room towards the main street the first night. Due to construction work outside it was impossible to get some sleep and the staff kindly changed our room. We were not bothered by the noise from outside the rest of our stay, allthough the ventilation was very loud during the night. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel since you could find cheaper and cosier restaurants, serving excellent breakfast in the neighbourhood.

We spent 3 nights in November 2013 at Acrotel Velvet Berlin. Staff at reception were fantastic, helpful and friendly. The hotel is a short walk (15 minutes) across the bridge from downtown and major sites. Great cafes and restaurants in the area.

The shower was awkward because it did not have a door separating it from the bedroom, making the room very steamy and damp after showers. The full length windows looked out onto a restaurant, but we noticed when we ate there that you can see directly into our hotel room as well! The rooms had black out curtains though, so was not a big deal as soon as we figured this out.

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.
