“Friendly staff but tiny below average room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

We stayed here mid June 2013 having booked for 5 nights in a 'delux room'. When given our key the receptionist even said, ohh.. Small bed. My God... Small? I've seen hotels with bigger dressing areas. The room was tiny, cramped and smelled. While the room did appear clean it was certainly not above the standard of a 2star. The breakfast was terrible with diluted orange juice and strong coffee (little else). I would definately recommend looking elsewhere for somewhere to stay in Berlin.

Kinda average room but excellent value. Staff were friendly enough and room was cleaned each day although bedding wasn't changed once in 6 nights.

Heating worked very well and kept room tosatie. Small bathroom. Bit noisey at weekends, nothing major.

Didn't have breakfast.

WiFi workerd well at all times.

Very good location for getting into town/Mitte, Friedrichshains bars are just a few mins walk away.

The hotel is located in a backyard so that it's really quiet. We stayed on the 5th floor, the room was clean and we had a big bathroom. The staff is friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay. Regarding the price (4,50€ per person) the breakfast is good. Metro and Underground are in walking distance so you can reach Berlin Mitte easily.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

I booked this hotel because of the good reviews, unfortunately i was a bit disappointed with the service.

I found the staff to be kinda grumpy. It seems like they were never really happy, or showing a smile or a good mood to the hotel guest. They almost never said anything. Well at least to me.
One time they even thought i was stealing breakfast, while i was just looking to decide whether i would want to buy the breakfast that morning or not. Which made me decide to just go to a restaurant instead. Overall the staff spoke little English. At arrival I haven't received any help or explanation of the hotel procedures and facilities. I was pointed to the instructions in my room. The grumpy mood made me leave my stay kinda irritated.

I stayed in the single room on the ground floor, with shared badroom. The first night i slept really bad. Guests were making noise until 23:00 and early in the morning. The days after that i slept with ear plugs, but luckily from day 3 the hotel also got more quiet with not too many guests around. But it seems the ground floor room is not recommended as it is next to the reception and entrance. Unfortunately this was -not- advertised (i would have never booked it).

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and it was nice to have a table and chair to be able to work on a laptop. The showers were hot and good.
Unfortunately they turned off the central heating a few times after 22:00, so with -15 outside it got kinda cold in my room....

It would have been nice if they offered free tea or coffee for the guests, but no.

Overall it is a good location if you need a bed in a clean room to be near by wherever you need to be in Friedrichshain, but don't except service and avoid the ground floor. All in all i think the ground floor room is overpriced. I rate it more like 20 to 25 euro. The big problem is the noise...

This hotel is very good value for money. Very clean. Good breakfast. The staff were absolutely wonderful and could not have been more helpful. Good location near the East Railway Station was good for the connection by train to Schoenerfeld Airport.

We stayed here when visiting Berlin for the weekend, the hotel is in a great location-easy to get everywhere. The staff were friendly and offered great advise on where to go and what to see. Hotel itself was clean and we had a big room ensuite with a separate are with couch and table.
We will definitely stay here if we visit Berlin again
