I recently spent 2 nights in the Adina Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin and was extremely satisfied with this apartment hotel.
Location is great with a caveat. Its close to a couple of U-Bahn stations, its close to sights and shops, BUT the neighbourhood is not what one would consider attractive. In fact the view from my room was bordering on apocalyptic (see attached photo). But the important thing is the proximity to useful parts of Berlin, and for that reason it is great.
Check in was a breeze and the lobby area is extremely pleasing with a small sitting area and a large courtyard outside.
My room was a one bedroom apartment which was HUGE compared to standard hotel rooms. It had avery well appointed kitchen, a living room area, a nice little balcony, and a small but entirely adequate bedroom with a comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom was also quite large. There was even a washer and dryer in the bathroom. The furnishings are modern, comfortable and (of course) spotlessly clean. There was a nice space for laptops and the wifi was super fast (and included for me, but not sure if it is for everyone).
For a relatively small property I was extremely surprised to find an indoor narrow, 2 lane +/-20 meter pool for doing laps. There was also a sauna and jacuzzi and a nice sized gym. Full marks for facilities!
The breakfast was excellent - plenty of selections and the restaurant served some great food in a nice ambience. The Adina/Medina's Australian connection means you have vegemite available for breakfast and Aussie Burgers (with beetroot) and kangaroo on the menu.
All in all, I was extremely satisfied with the value for money proposition of the Adina and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a good business or tourist hotel in Berlin.
