I recently spent 5 nights at Hotel Indigo Alexanderplatz and I absolutely loved it! It wouldn't have chosen this hotel to stay at, as the bright colours in the photos put me off a bit, but we had trawled through all the hotels in Berlin and this was my partners choice so we went with it.
I had read a review suggesting you ask for a courtyard room to get away from any road noise, so we followed the suggestion, and the receptionist was happy to accommodate us but did mention that courtyard rooms were slightly smaller than a standard room. We asked how much extra it would be to upgrade and she said 10 euros per night so we queried if we could be shown both size rooms to see if we were bothered about upgrading.
We were shown the smaller courtyard room first, and it was lovely (beautifully decorated so I'm glad I didn't let the 'bright colours' put me off!), but it was pretty small so we cheekily asked to be shown the upgrade and there was no choice - I would've happily paid more than 10 euros extra per night for it! The bathroom was much bigger, with a beautiful walk in shower, and the bedroom had a sofa area, whereas the previous room could only really fit in the bed! The bed was also much bigger (I had the best nights sleep I think I've ever had)
We were really impressed with how easy it was to upgrade, and how friendly the staff were about showing us to both rooms. We had also forgotten an adaptor and I queried at reception if they had any we could buy, which they didn't but they did have an adaptor we could borrow free of charge, which we returned upon checking out.
I am unable to comment on the food, as we didn't eat at the hotel, but we did enjoy a few drinks (I really enjoyed my moscow mule!) in the hotel bar, which is beautifully done up but a tad quiet!
One other perk of the hotel was that they had a couple of sky channels in English, including two movie channels and a sports channel, so that was a real perk as I had read that most hotels didn't offer English channels. Wifi was also free, you could pay to upgrade to a faster wifi but we were fine with the free option.
The hotel is really close to Alexanderplatz station, although we walked most places during our stay - it takes about 30 minutes to walk to Brandenburg and it's a lovely walk past Hackescher Mark, Museum Island and past Friedrichstrasse along the beautiful river Spree.
