Ambiente is a small hotel in a quiet residential area of Schöneberg. Rooms are small, as is typical of Berlin hotels in this price range. The bed and furnishings are simple in a modern but comfortable style, and the hotel is very clean. Good quality towels and linens are provided. The bath was of adequate size but lacks shelf space for toiletries. It has a stall shower with prompt and plentiful hot water. One of the hotel's concessions to economy is the lack of individual soap bars or bottles of shampoo. These are dispensed from wall containers. Breakfast is quite good, including an array of hot and cold buffet items, and is served in a cheerful sunlit room. The hotel reception is located on an upper floor, with hotel rooms on floors above that (all are accessible by lift). It is necessary to pass by the reception before going up to one's room, i.e. visitors to this hotel are monitored. The staff was friendly and accommodating, allowing me to leave luggage in a secure location before and after my check-in and check-out. The location is what drew me to the Ambiente. It is within easy walking distance of the Nollendorfplatz U-bahn station and close to pleasant dining options along the nearby tree-lined streets. On occasion I purchased a simple lunch at Pennymarkt, a small market very close to the hotel, and took it to the room. The hotel is also convenient to Schöneberg's lively gay scene, without being right in the middle of it, including Berlin's Christopher Street Day parade in June, which crosses Nollendorfplatz. The Ku'damm is a bit farther away but also accessible by foot. When paying the bill, non-eurozone visitors are given the option of having a credit card charged in a home currency rather than in euros. This is NOT advisable and incurs large and unnecessary additional fees. I will definitely consider Ambiente for a future stay.
