I landed in Tegel and took a bus from the airport to AlexanderPlatz. I don't speak any German but there were plenty of people around at the airport who were willing to help and spoke excellent English. I got off the bus at AlexanderPlatz, asked for directions to the nearest underground station (of the same name) and then took the red line to Stadtmitte. The whole journey cost 2.40 euros. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from this station and very easy to find. When I arrived at the hotel, the receptionist was very nice and helpful. I had booked a room with twin beds as a friend of mine was arriving later that evening on a different flight. The room was on the second floor next to the lift so i was a bit dubious about it being noisy but needn't have worried. The beds were super comfortable and we heard no noise at all. Enough space and hangers for clothes, plus a safe in side the wardrobe too. The TV worked well, although there were only 2 English channels. This wasn't a problem as we spent most of our time out of the hotel. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment, including glasses, cutlery, plates, bottle opener, fridge, microwave..etc. The bathroom had a powerful shower with complimentary soap, shampoo and body lotion. There were also tissues, white towels and a hairdryer. After settling in and before my friend arrived, i was directed by the receptionist to the local supermarket Lidl where I bought food and drink for breakfast the next day. We didn't really want to spend the 19 euros on the hotel breakfast. The supermarket is open until about 20,30h. Opposite Lidl is a very reasonable Italian restaurant called La Fontana di Trevi with authentic pasta and pizza. Next door is an irish bar where we went for drinks later that night. Both places had friendly staff. Ready for sightseeing the next day, the hotel is literally a 5 minute walk (if that) to Checkpoint Charlie. From here we got on one of the hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour buses which takes you all around the city. Ours lasted about 2 hours and cost 12 euros, well worth it. I was very impressed with the hotel and would most defintiely recommend it to anyone going to Berlin.
