My boyfriend booked this hotel for a trip to Berlin. The hotel emailed him to see what time we would be arriving as they don't have 24 hour check in- to guarantee someone was there for our arrival.
Location: It cost us approximately 3 euros (ABC ticket) to get from the airport by train and underground to a stop just near to the hotel and about a 5 minute walk down a side street away from the main traffic. There were several choices of near by stations u- Oranienburger Tor/s-Berlin Nordbahnhof, you could even walk from Friedrichstraße if you wanted to. There were lots of cafes, restaurants and bars within a short walk and 3 small shops to buy drink & snacks. It was also very close to the Natural History Museum, Berlin Wall Memorial and most of the other main sights were within walking distance, the TV tower, the Bundestag, holocaust memorial, Berlin wall & Tiergarten (make sure you have comfy shoes!!!))
The Room:On arrival we were greeted by our host, he spoke a little English, and his partner spoke a little Russian and German and they were both very helpful with any questions we had and friendly. The room was situated on the second floor of an apartment building. It was very clean (cleaned everyday). The room was long and thin with an en-suite shower/toilet room. The showers were powerful and hot which was great! There was a small table, two chairs, fridge, basic hairdryer, TV (no English channels) and free WiFi. There were maps and leaflets in the lobbies. The rooms aren't luxury but great for what you pay and were a little hot at night, you could open the window but it was a little noisy - so not sure how they would be at the height of summer and no safe.
Food: Breakfast was optional for 6 Euros, this had a selection of cold meats, pates, cheeses, cereal, fruit, coffee, teas, chocolate milk, breads, a toaster, salads, fruit juices and more! (much better than other continental breakfasts).
