Let’s start in the order of the travel
From the airport Tegel you go with taxi for EUR 20,00 to the hotel. As we didn’t want to bother this price seemed to us quite fair. Anyway I think you can go also with public transportation as there is tram and metro stop directly beside the hotel.
The check-in was without any problem, you just have to be a bit patient as over the days there we recognized the reception is always busy.
We organized via booking.com and there free Wi-Fi was advertised, but this you get just if you fill a membership with the Melia program. This we did and then it was not a problem for free Wi-Fi, anyway I’m not a big fan of these programs and also the promised free bottle of water never arrived in the room (I have to admit we didn’t complain about it)
The room (we booked regular double room) was just perfect! Everything was in nice, bright color – size was really good – room was perfectly clean – TV channels had a good selection – big safe was there – bathroom looked very nice – qualitative excellent interior.
From this point of view and as frequent traveler I can just say – EXCELLENT for a reasonable price.
The breakfast we skipped as the price for us was too high – we need just a coffee and a croissant and there is EUR 24,00 / person / night too much.
As already mentioned at the beginning, public transportation is in directly at the hotel (tram, bus, metro), but it’s not really necessary as you have in walking distance Brandenburger Tor, Aleksander Platz and also for the Spree cruises stops are directly at the hotel.
Overall we were very satisfied and can really recommend the hotel – just one hint, take a room which doesn’t go directly on the Friedrichstraße.
