You cannot beat the location or decor. I enthusiastically recommend this hotel.
Exceptionally clean and quiet room with ample surfaces for putting our luggage. I suggest asking for a higher floor if concerned about street noise.
Room key-controlled doors separating guest rooms from the elevator area create both quiet and security.
We were impressed with the room safe having a 6-number lock instead of 4.
Breakfast room: try to get a window seat facing the Platz. The U-Bahn commuters, tourists, concert hawkers and pamphleteers make fine street theatre. The efficient staff greets you quickly, notes where you sit and prepares your coffee or tea while you head for the buffet. The orange juice can't be fresher--you squeeze oranges yourself with the juicer. One morning they offered bacon-wrapped sausages.
Bath: Most appreciated--the drop-down drying rack for laundry on the heated towel rack, having a separate shower stall from the tub so that we didn't have to do-si-do at night, the squeeze dispensers in tub and shower (no dropping little containers or fishing for lids under water)
Staff: most helpful and knowlegable, and kept an eye on comings and goings without being obvious. They even found a little vase for a lily one of the dinner restaurants gave me.
The porter gave us a good tour of our room and features, but it would have been helpful to have the window roller blinds demonstrated. We discovered them later when we tried the wall switch between the windows. Never figured out how to keep them shut until we got up in mornings (they automatically tilted horizontal at first light). I'm a morning person but my husband is not.
