Well priced hotel with good facilities and a good location for walking distance to the Reichstag & Brandenburg Gate, with excellent links to the train transport.
Staff: Welcoming, friendly and informative however didn't inform about swiping card in lift and bumped into other customers stuck in the lifts when first checking in!
Room: Perfect for a city break; good size bed, shower lovely and necessary items all provided.
Location: Hotel is located 2 minutes away from Hauptbahnhof Train Station however there is little in terms of cafes, bars or restaurants nearby. This means having to walk towards the Reichstag (10 minutes) or take train into Alexanderpatz or other busier area's which isn't an issue as trains are excellent and free pass is provided for you for travel during your stay - by the hotel.
TRAINS: Hauptbahnhof train station is HUGE. The platform that you are likely to use the most is platform 15/16, which is located on the third level of the train station and takes you to the main tourist attractions using the S5 line.
Overall: Good hotel for a city break and good location for sight seeing, with a free city travel pass which is a worry off your mind as never having to buy tickets is great! I would stay here again if I return to Berlin.
Hope this helps!
