I chose the hotel because of its proximity to a conference I was attending - and it turned out to be perfect at all levels. It is on a quiet, one-way street next to the Ukrainian Embassy, and there are several good (cheap and cheerful) restaurants near by, as well as a small store to get water, bevvies, fruit and veg. The breakfast at the hotel is reasonable with healthy options (8 Euro) with limitless coffee. The staff were AMAZINGLY friendly and helpful, to a person. Kudos to them and to the person that recruited and trained them. The hotel is small, boutique sized, for me a pleasant discovery as I expected something a bit more impersonal given it was a chain hotel. My room was very small; it WAS billed as a single featuring twin beds together, typical for a European hotel, but well designed and equipped, with a window that opened and air conditioning that worked (Berlin can get very hot at times, which turns a/c into a priority quickly :-)), clean, amenities (like a hairdryer, safe, enough hangers, towels and an iron when requested). There was no fridge in my room, good to know in case that's a priority. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet except for one night when folks chose to hang out outside the elevators and chat at 1 a.m.). One takes one's chances here; I'd request a room away from the elevators! FYI, many hotels feature smaller than average rooms - reminiscent of London and Paris - space is, quite simply, at a premium in big cities. With all there is to do in Berlin, one is not in one's room much!
The breakfast room is very pleasant and comfortable.
As well as being close to where I wanted to be, the location was a bonus - near the Friedrichstrasse U-Bahn and the Oranjentor S-bahn stations, buses and tons of easily walkable sights like the Deutsches Historisches Museum, Unter den Linden, Brandenburg Gate, and much more. The Museum Insel (Museum Island) is a quick walk away.
When I return to Berlin, I will seek out a reservation at this hotel. Not the cheapest, but a far cry in price from the hotels nearby, offering what most travellers need. SUPER location and friendly service = good value. Thanks especially to the front desk staff who were friendly, patient and helpful.
