The whole checkpoint charlie area whilst not discrediting the history and location, is simply historical. Besides CC, there is not much to do in this area so take this into acccount on your trip to Berlin.
Great clean new build Hotel as mentioned in previous reviews. The only flaws of this place is twofold - The shower. This is something they will need to address. Fittings and soaps are of the highest quality, but unfortunately the waterpressure and temperature control is absolutely horrible.
Secondly is the lack of climate control. You get the feeling that the building was built as apartments and then converted later to hotel usage, OR there is mixed usage in the building (some floors are hotel, some are apartments) It would make sense that it was constructed this way, especially with the location.
Do ask for an extra pillow at the reception as you will need it. Otherwise a most excellent fitout and quality with a sense of charm. They even have a piece of the wall out the front. If anybody knows where to buy pieces of the berlin wall that size do let me know.
