“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Great friendly family run hotel - arrived about 9pm and the owner was waiting for us (we had emailed her to let her know when we would arrive) room spacious with good WIFI signal and cleaned every day if you want. Fab location - no complaints whatsoever

We stayed here for two nights and we sure made the right decision! The staff was very friendly and in the reception they spoke english. The wifi worked well in our room. The breakfast was great, but it didn´t include in the hotel price which is inconvenient. We arrived late in the evening, when it was already dark and got lost in the area. But luckily, there were some friendly people who helped us. The hotel "sign" is not so big and it may be hard to find. Don´t judge the hotel based on the entrance, once you get inside it´s very different than what you would think. The room had a good bathroom and it was spacious. This hotel has a good value.

Room Tip: The rooms on the "street" side are not noisy, because there are not many cars driving, mos...

We stayed here one night and really enjoyed the spacious double room overlooking the street. The value of this hotel is great, and the friendly service made it a really nice stay. The owner helped us find places to go in Berlin and the breakfast was very nice. A great value.

There is something about staying in a family run hotel, that if done well, is a more satisfactory experience than spending a great deal of money on an 'international' hotel. Novalis was such a place...Be warned it looks down at heel from outside, but bearing in mind all the positive Trip advisor reports we had read before hand, we didn't let its exterior deter us. We had a family room, with plenty of room, exceptionally clean, colourfully decorated. It was such fun to have flowery duvet coves and coloured towels instead of bland whites or neutrals. I am not a lace curtain or shiny bed covering person at home, but on a break in a foreign city it just added to the atmosphere. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or kind. We were even given a totally free car parking pass...this saved us 30Euros in total. The breakfast was only 6 euros each and was an abundant array of fruit, cereal, bread, cold meats and cheeses and excellent coffee. Bacon and hot sausage was provided for those who wanted it..91 Euros per night including breakfast...We will be back and would happily stay here for longer.

Room Tip: Book a family room if you would like a little more space

My partner and I spent 118 Euros for two nights at this hotel.

The room was quite small but it was clean and good enough for our short stay.

Location is quite good, and isn't far from Metro if you wanted to get around quicker.

Breakfast wasn't included which was a shame as there aren't many restaurants or coffee shops near by.

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).
