First of all, the map for this is wrong. The address is right, but this is in West Berlin almost next door to the Zoo Berlin and the Aquarium.
The location is absolutely perfect for getting around, sightseeing, restaurants, trains to the airport, etc.
The apartments are very nice and modern with plenty of room. We also used the laundry facilities which were good, but maybe a little expensive. The reception staff were always very friendly and helpful and even printed out the train times and details for us for our early morning train to the airport.
The only thing that really let this place down was that we had ordered a cot with our booking and even rang and double checked three days before arriving that it would definitely be in the room as we were due to arrive on a day when reception was unmanned. Despite being assured that the cot would definitely be in the room, when we arrived it wasn't and travelling with infants can sometimes be stressfull enough without having to worry how they are going to sleep without a cot.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Berlin is like an open history book. The city has been reinvented since the fall of the wall and is considered the trendiest city in Europe. Nevertheless, the contrasts between the modern day and nostalgia for the former East Germany have been deliberately maintained. The Hapimag Resort is close to Bahnhof Zoo station in the heart of Berlin, not far from the Kurfürstendamm, Reichstag and Gedächtniskirche church. ... more less
