Great location but skip breakfast
Great hotel in a great location but only get the breakfast if you plan to be down before 9.15 as once the food runs out that’s it so you have basically paid €12 for 2 bits of bread and a bit of cheese, couple of cafes nearby so go there.

Clean and comfortable
This was the third time I have used this hotel and it still met our expectations. We did have an issue when checking in but the hotel were quick to recognise their error and made satisfactory amends to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. The hotel is in a great location and is clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great value for a city break!

Good location - hotel no more than 1- 2 stars
The location of the hotel was really central but unfortunately next to a derelict building which is undergoing a rebuild. It is incredibly noisy particularly on the lower floors of the hotel ( although this would be expected for a central location). The amenities provided were very basic but adequate. However, reception staff were not at all helpful - if anything rude. We were dismayed that cups and glasses were not washed or replaced after our first night at the hotel. The shower flooded leaving the carpet in the room soaked because the seals on the shower unit in the middle of the room, had gone. We did clean up using towels - these did not get replaced either. The beds were standard. Would not recommend overall

Long Weekend Stay
The hotel was clean, modern and the staff were friendly enough. Close to links for Ubahn and over ground tram to take you into Berlin centre. It is only around a 20 minute walk into main areas of Berlin - use google maps rather than following road signs etc when walking. Down side of the hotel is that dining area and bar only opened for Breakfast, could not get a drink if after Breakfast hours, Breakfast in hotel is 10 euro each, however nice bakery across the road where you can get two teas, to breakfast rolls and pastries for less than 10 euro in total. Surrounding bars and restaurants good value. There is a mini bar in the room but no facilities to make own hot drinks. The hotel is in a quieter area of Berlin on the outskirts, the tram passes by outside regularly but unless you are a real light sleeper this will not keep you awake.
