Stayed here three nights over Easter weekend. The whole experience was pleasant for the exception of the following:

No tea/coffee making facilities in room - not sure if that's the case in all German hotels but for me it was an important aspect which was missing. There WAS an option of going down to the lobby and picking up a tea/coffee for an extra charge available until 10.30pm (€2.00 for Earl Grey tea and €1.30 for a small cafe creme).

The other negative aspect for me was the minibar. It was pricey and difficult to avoid.

One of the best things about this hotel, however, is the breakfast. Only got it once (on the last day) but wishing we'd had it more! There was even champagne!

The receptionists we all very pleasant and helpful and spoke excellent English.

Approximately 10 minutes walk from hotel to Putzdamer Plats underground, which isn't bad.

The decor was a bit too clinical for my taste (a LOT of white).

Stayed 3 nights. Room was basic but comfortable. TV lacked a decent sports channel but non-German channels available. No room safe. Friendly, efficient, English-speaking staff, good location. Breakfast was exceptional. I would stay again.

I stayed here for the Berlin Marathon last year (it's well placed), and noticed a few changes. The staff are not as nice and the wifi is expensive, but the marathon breakfast is worth the extra few pennies.
Meanwhile, for the berlin runners, this is easily the best place to stay !

getting here from the airport ? Take the airport TXL express bus to unter den linden and walk from there, it's about 15 minute walk, far cheaper than a taxi.

Room Tip: ask for a room which doesn't overlook the childrens park, if you are looking for a good nights s...

I was at the hotel for 1 day. The room was nice and clean.
Good breakfast , but the atendant speaks only german.
They charged for telephone call that I received and for the numbers I dialed but couldn't speak.
A bit far from the Metro station, but near to the center of Berlin.

I lost my luggage at the airport, and I couldn't reach them and they finally called the hotel this morning, and this girl at the reception desk, who doesn't have much of a brain, told them not to bring the luggage because the check out is in one hour, and she didn't get a way to reach them, so now I have to go again all the way to the airport and get my luggage.
It's perhaps the german attitude, "not our business, anything outside of the exact check out time"

The rooms were very clean, and comfortable, although coffee making facilities would have been nice, but we found out on our trip that this is no exception in Germany. There were toiletries in our rooms. The reception and bar service was very friendly.We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel as, although it looked very good, it was very expensive at 12.5 euros each. Berlin is an inexpensive city, and filling breakfasts can be had aplenty in the city centre for half that price. The bar prices, however, were acceptable to us. The very soft pillows in the rooms weren't to my liking and won't suit those who prefer a harder pillow. The location of the hotel appears at first, as others have said, to be a little off the beaten track, so much so that the taxi driver did not know where it was ! But it isn't in an industrial zone, as some reviews have suggested, (the buildings surrounding the hotel are mainly quiet residential apartment blocks) and it isn't in a dodgy backyard either. However, it would be wrong to say that, despite first appearances, its accessibility is poor. It is an easy walk to Potsdamer Platz, (12 minutes) and the nearest U-Bahn station at Mendelsson Bartholdy Park is a short walk away (5 minutes, maximum of 8, via the playground next to the hotel, turn right onto the street, a left turn, then another right. The station can be accessed via the multi storey car park). For the first time visitor to Berlin, the public transport system is magnificent. In summary, a better location (not perfect) than might be presumed from previous reviews, excellent friendly service, good clean rooms and good value for money. Would I stay here again - yes. Is it perfect ? No, but it was good value for money.

The hotel is located in a quiet backyard, not a very nice one though, but still in the middle of the city. Nice price, good breakfast, friendly staff. A strange smell in the room, and the shower had no shades.
