Being spoiled by frequent visits to the upper end of the Hotel Group's family of properties I am trying hard to look at this place objectively.
This is a budget hotel which offers all you need to comfortably spend a short time. Don't expect a wardrobe with doors, an in-room safe or individual toiletries.
This said the room and the property were kept very clean and nicely maintained. There was a problem with hot water becoming unavailable for the entire hotel. The management said that the hot water system would be repaired by a certain time and it was done as promised. The staff had a can-do attitude and accommodated my strange requests such as two extra duvets (which I used as a mattress cover to soften the mattress and cushion the springs I could feel in the mattress.)
All room rates - as I understand it - include a continental breakfast. Make sure you arrive early. The food is replenished but it may be a bit crowded if you wait until after 09:30am.
Overall it is a nice hotel; the staff is quite attentive, friendly and professional.
Location wise this hotel is in a good neighbourhood. It is close to the zoo and the Wittenbergplatz underground station. Also within a short walking distance are good restaurants, Asian massage places (hey...the serious stuff, reflexology, Thai, deep tissue, shiatsu) and the Largest department store in continental Europe, the KaDeWe. (second in Europe after Harrod's in London)
Hope you can take some pointers from this review. Enjoy your visit to Berlin.
