“A cheap hotel, both in a positive and negative sense”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

First, the good news --
This hotel is clean
It offers basic comforts ... working shower, simple breakfast, comfortable bed
It is within a block and a half of a fairly busy S-bahn station
The staff are reasonably polite
It is fairly inexpensive.
Next, the bad news: This hotel is cheap in the mean sense --
It offers WiFi, but that sevice costs 4 Euros ($5.25) / day and is inconvenient (users must freshly login for every single use, the username and password change every day, and the interface is not very transparent)
Residents cannot easily use the room phone to make outside calls (on my first attempt, I was asked to go to front desk to make a 10 Euro ($13.50), partly-refundable deposit!
I was asked to pay for the full expected cost of my 4-night stay upon checking in, a serious inconvenience if you must or wish to check out earlier than expected.
Like other German hotels, this one is under the impression that hand soap, bath soap, and hair shampoo are all identical and can be dispensed from the same liquid dispenser. Unlike other German hotels, this one LOCKS separate soap containers to the sink and to the shower. My shower soap dispenser was empty before the end of my stay, but the only way to use the soap dispenser at the sink was to step, dripping, out of the shower. Not pleasant.
Amazingly cheap and poor tv set. Guys, a good one would only cost 30 Euros more!
The front desk staff were not well trained. Checking in, paying, and purchasing WiFi access took an inordinate amount of time.

On balance: Not a pleasant hotel if you're staying in one of Europe's greatest cities.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2010

Stayed for 8 nights at this hotel. Service was very good and staff willing to help (except for one receptionist who hardly smiled). Rooms were clean. Breakfast was buffet with a very good selection of hot and cold items. One night we also had dinner in the hotel and the food was good, abundant and reasonably priced. There are a couple of restaurants nearby. The location is also very good as there is an S-Bahn (Anhalter) further down the road and two buses, M41 and M29 which we found very convenient - used them more than the S-Bahn. M29 passes by the hotel. It is about 10 minutes walk from Potsdamer Platz or one stopby bus/S-Bahn. The only drawback we had was that our room was overlooking the street which is very busy so we had to keep the window closed at night and the AC was not so good. There were 2 PC terminals and a printer in the lobby which one can use free of charge.
