“Great VFM and unbeatable location - for Cold War and WW2 buffs”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

I am a WW2 and Cold War Buff and from that point of view, the location of this hotel is simply unbeatable. Anhalter Bahnof ruins - 50 m. Prinz Albrechtsrasse Gestapo HQ - now a museum Topography of terror - about 200 m, with a section of The Wall adjacent to the museum. Hermann Goering's Reich Air Ministry - now the German Finance Ministry - bang opposite the Topography of Terror. Hitler's Fuhrer Bunker location - now a car park - about 300 - 400 m. The Holocaust Memorial and museum - about 100 m from the car park. Brandbenburg Tor and Hotel Adlon - another 100 m. Soviet War Memorial - about 200 m from Brandenburg Tor. Reichstag. Siegesaul - another 3 - 400 m from Tor. You can lazily walk it up and finish all of these in half a day - as I did (though I would have loved to spend more time in the Holocaust and Topography of Terror museums) . Don't forget Checkpoint Charlie which is about half to 1 km from this hotel. If you are not the Cold War or WW2 buff tyoes - and its hard to escape both these 20th Century events in Berlin - then go to Potsdamer Platz which is about 200 m from the hotel, buy a Hop on Hop off ticket - as I did - and you can tour Berlin and see the other historical sites. As an Indian , I found the "all you can eat for 10 Euro " breakfast , absolutely monotonous (same spread for 3 days ) and even pathetic but I am sure most Westerners will like the breakfast . Its no frills stay and no room service but that's why the hotel is so cheap (about 130 Euro for 2 nights three days for a couple ! ) It was comfortablebut again the room is no frills - you want tea or coffee or anything to east , you have to go down to the restaurant on the ground floor. The Net connection in the room was chargeable but is free in the lobby ! All in all for a history buff like me, the location is unbeatable

Stayed for 7 nights in march. The location of the hotel is perfect! Just next to the postdamer platz, and a very short walk into town or into the zoo. The hotel itself is quite comfortable, and the hotel staff were very helpful to recommend activities and set up reservations. Highly recommended!

Well located. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Quiet neighbourhood. There is a very nice italian restaurant on the corner that serves a delicious pizza (good and cheap). The hotel has bikes to rent wich is a very nice way to enjoy Berlin. Recomended.

* usual breakfast;
* clean room with some elements slightly damaged (curtains with holes);
* a lot of satellite TV programms in various languages;
* impersonal and improvable service - anecdotally, on my arrival, I checked-in and pre-paid the 139 EUR overnight accomodation cost. After having dropped my luggage in the room, I went to the bar to have a coffee. I paid for my espresso on the spot, sat down and 15 minutes after I drunk a cafe, while I was leaving the bar area, I was chased and challenged, for a couple of minutes, by a waiter requesting me to re-pay for the cafe and requiring me to provide a physical description of her colleague who received my cash paiement. This gave me a feeling of mistrust which is not very customer friendly.

I stayed 2 nights ,the hotel has a very good location on a quiet street , the room was clean and had a nice bed.The bathroom was small but it was spotless clean . No free shampoo ;)
Good breakfast & friendly people at the reception. There was free wireless in the the reception area as well as a couple of computers you could use.
I enjoyed my stay , but have to say that the 9 euros i paid every day to have wireless in my room was a total rip-off , as it was difficult to establish a connection on my Iphone , and the speed was so slow that it would make a turtle look like a speedy gonzalez !!!
A nice touch they had , was a safe room where you could leave your stuff, after you checked out , and then collect it later .
I would not have any problem to come back in the future.
