No brainer for value if you book in advance and LOTS of space. Staff are a bit hit and miss, with some being very helpful and going seemingly out of their way to help and others whom desperately seem like they'd want to work somewhere else. We've stayed here before as a couple, probably about 6 years ago and thankfully it hasn't changed!
Rooms are big and clean. Shower cubicle and a bath as well as a separate toilet and very convenient for the family. Our 3 year old slept on the sofa which was made into a bed (proper mattress, he slept like a ...baby!). Bed was firm foam mattress which suited us fine. Linen was very clean. Wifi was very fast and TV had good selection of on demand movies for free (watched Oblivion) and extras, plus lots of TV channels in lots of languages (sure it was only the news channels in English though).
Location is great. We took a new S class Merc Taxi (kinda the norm for Berlin Taxis) from Tegel Airport for 20 Euros. It's about 10 minutes flat stroll to Potsdamer Platz (important when you have luggage) or there's Anhalter Bahnhoff right outside the hotel which is 1 stop to Potsdamer Platz or goes straight to Brandenburg Tor (Gate).
We didn't take the buffet breakfast as there are so many places to eat outside, you might as well just get out of the hotel and get on with it. Plus it must be cheaper to eat out. Its really shameful how well most people spoke English, to the point where you don't even feel like embarrassing yourself trying to cobble together some German in an effort to impress the locals.
Book in advance for a good rate. Would definitely stay here again.
