The hotel has a very good position in the center of Berlin on Stresemannstrasse; all the public transportation means are just a couple of minutes away. From the hotel to the Charlie Check point you need approx.15 min on foot.
The price was including the breakfast which is served in the restaurant right to the reception.The food is not very varied but for sure you will be able to find something for your taste.
The room itself has around 9-10 sqm plus another 5-6 for the small entrance hall and the bathroom (Standard room type).
The double bed is very comfortable; next to it you have a small couch; in front of the couch there is a small table with a lamp and a small LCD TV; the selection of TV channels is not very attractive.
We were surprised to not find a fridge/cooler in the room.
The window can be opened for getting fresh air. The problem is that if you have view at the inner garden and you want to keep the window open, you might get the noise of the conversation of those enjoying a beer there. But it is not a problem of late hours.
Free wireless internet available in room as well as AC and coffee/tea facilities.
The bathroom has an interesting feature; the door is serving also as door for the shower. So, if you wanna have a shower in privacy and you close the door, the entire bathroom will be exposed at a view from the room. If you close the door at the bathroom you do not have door for the shower. Nice thing! A lot of toiletries are at your disposal in the bathroom.
The cleanliness is present everywhere in the room and allover the hotel.
There is no room service as long there are no restaurant facilities excepting the breakfast. So, supply yourself with whatever you need before going to the room. You have a supermarket just a few hundreds of meters away.
A lobby bar is waiting for you and you can enjoy a good German beer while navigating on internet or in the nice back garden.
And watch out when you exit the hotel as long the bicycle track is running just a meter away of entrance/exit; you do not want to have a contact with a bicycle. Usually, they pay attention but you have to do it also.
The receptionists are very polite and helpful whenever you ask for their advice/support. They can order a taxi for you for a ride in town or to the airport.
As a general opinion, the hotel is nice and the stay is worthy as long you do not need too many facilities.
