I found this hotel was a good compromise between value and quality. Front desk service was polite and efficient, bags were taken up to the room by a porter. Lifts require room card, which is good for security.
Rooms themselves are quite spacious, and use the Rubin rubyred colour scheme, which gives a sense of quality. Beds were very comfortable. good quality TV, but just had the usual 30 or so German cable channels. DVD player was a nice addition, especially as it had a USB slot. Bathroom was always clean and quite spacious, only problem occurred when shower gel (the type in a dispenser on the wall) was replaced with hand soap by accident - a quick call to reception rectified this with miniature shampoos and shower gel.
Used internet in the lobby - three computers which were rarely all occupied, and seemed quite secure, deleting your session when you logged off.
Area is not fantastic, you do have to walk through a slightly grotty, seedy area to get there, but it is well lit and on a main road, about 10 minutes walk from the main train station, and two minutes from the nearest U-Bahn. The slightly rough-and-ready surroundings mean that there is plenty of nearby nightlife, with lots of atmosphere.
Overall, highly recommended!
