Just OKPosted Oct 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
As others have mentioned, 10-15 steps to reach lobby, so could be challenging carrying heavier suitcases up/down to lobby. Elevator (Lift) from lobby floor to upper floors is out of service. Decor is dated. Room is small, bathroom is small and poorly lit. Shower enclosure is tight, and I'm a lean individual. No on-site restaurant, but sister property offers lunch/dinner across the street. Neighborhood has plenty of other restaurants as well. Internet (for fee) only available in rooms close to the lobby. Otherwise must use PC in lobby, also for a fee.

Good location, poorly maintainedPosted Oct 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is well located, just off Kurfuerstendam which is an upmarket shopping street. It is within walking distance of the Uhlandstrasse railway station from where there are direct buses to and from Tegel airport. There end the positives. There is a steep flight of stairs to get to the reception which are not easy to negotiate with heavy suitcases. Check-in was functional with none of the usual niceties one would expect. The hotel itself is a faded reminder of better days. Cleanliness is a big issue - right from the dust lined carpets in the hallways, to the dust on the walls in the rooms. Parts of the dusty wall above the bed had been 'swept clean' by the pillows of previous users. The shower cabinet and shower head were moldy and the hair dryer plug and socket had been taped to the wall with sticky tape or else they would have fallen off ! The lamp shade of the floor lamp in the room had big stains on it with the dirtiest part turned towards the wall to hide it. Seeing the poor state of cleanliness in the hotel we didn't risk having breakfast there.

Pros: Rooms are Massive!! Authentic and great location.
Cons: Cosmetic things really but none of that would put me off.
Location: Loads to do maxing shopping. SBahn and UBahn right around the corner which you hop on to get to Alexanderplatz etc
Yes it maybe a little tired and yes it could do with a bit of a facelift but honestly...a fab hotel in a fab location! Perfect for a city break, to be fair we only literally slept there we were out enjoying Berlin. I slept fine, staff were friendly and the room was massive! I honestly couldn't fault it but maybe I'm easily pleased. It's clean and comfy and in an ideal location!! I would stay again.

Hotel close to the centrePosted Sep 16, 2013
Location: Ideal for U Bahn or walking to restaurants etc.
I would definitely use the hotel again as the position was very good for the price paid. However the the decor is starting to look rather tired and though the room was clean some of the housekeeping was variable. Breakfast was plentiful and as we were exploring Berlin the main criteria were cleanliness and position.

Great neighborhood, close to metro stationPosted Sep 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights, and we had an excellent experience. We hardly interacted with the staff, but when we did it was pleasant. Our room was clean and felt homey, with high ceilings and a big closet. The shower was a bit small. The location is good, with only a couple minute walk to the u-bahn station and also to one of the biggest shopping streets in Berlin.

Reasonably Priced City Centre Berlin HotelPosted Sep 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel belongs to a small chain of which I have stayed at several already. It is located in a smart, but quiet street off Kudamm, and is above an excellent local bar/restaurant, Meineke X. The hotel itself is a 19th Century old Berlin building with an impressive entrance hall, and the rooms, although clean and basically comfortable, will be better once they are refurbished. The bathroom was in desperate need of an upgrade. The staff on arrival came across as especially rude and unwelcoming but in the first morning I was ably assisted to receive a room with a desk so that I could work there. The hotel could do with providing free wi-fi in line with many of its other hotels. All in all this was reasonably priced for the standard of accommodation, but 5 minutes around the corner is another of the hotels in this chain, the Domus, an altogether more attractive and comfortable overnight stay.

Excellent locationPosted Aug 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located near Kurfurstendamm, close to good restaurants, in perhaps the most fashionable district od Berlin. It is located in a well-kept Jugendstil building, but its age shows. The rooms are not airconditioned and the size varies. The larger rooms are comfortable. The breakfast buffet is excellent.

Safe lodgings in great neighborhood!Posted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is definitely an older hotel and its age shows in small details like faded carpeting and a vintage elevator that does not run (a new modern elevator has been installed in back though). The room was large and always kept clean and the French doors opened completely allowing a nice breeze to waft through. The hotel was blessedly quiet at night as our room did not face the street and the neighborhood is fairly residential, but early morning trash collection from the dumpsters in back did wake us up a few times. This is a great hotel for travelers on a budget. All basic needs are met, the location is excellent, and the staff is extremely welcoming and helpful!

Good LocationPosted Jul 25, 2013
Cons: Seen better days but fine for a short stay.
Location: Handy from a transport point of view, and close to the Hard Rock Cafe
Hotel is in a good location, not far from U Bhan and walking distance from Berlin ZG station and is near the main area for bars, restaurants, cafes and shopping.

Great LocationPosted Jul 23, 2013
Location: Excellent, with easy access to transport network.
Well located within a 10 minute walk of Zoological Garden Station and closer to U Bahn. Lovely location in a quiet side road lined with trees and with a variety of good restaurants within very easy reach. Staff polite and helpful. We found it a great base for our visit to Berlin.
