“great location, great little hotel”
This is a lovely little hotel on an interesting street in Mitte. It's close to both the S-Bahn and U-Bahn. The beds have duvet-comforters, German-style. The breakfast buffet -- complete with a pot of coffee or tea for your table -- really sets you up for a day of sightseeing. I stayed here a few years ago and was happy to return this November
“Bargain in Berlin”
Good location, clean rooms, cordial staff, great free internet service, superb buffet breakfast.
“Good choice in Mitte”
Great location: at the very heart of Mitte, next door to Kunstwerke exhibition hall and many galleries, if you are into contemporary art. Hotel has something old-fashioned about it: wooden floors, wooden window frames which open into the street (small street with little traffic), no airconditioning (and no need of it by +32 which I endured), tiny TV, pretty basic (but sufficient) comfort. The hotel has some (not overpresent) affiliation with a religious organisation - which did not make rooms any cheaper, alas. You pay for the location and the quietness. Breakfast is served in the restaurant next door, with scrambled eggs and typical German buffet - nothing to write home about, but you will not starve. Lots of restaurants around, some of them cheap. Probably not a place for a romantic getaway but comfortable enough for a business trip. And Internet is truly free!
The room was pretty small, but comfortable and extremely clean. The location is very convenient and central -- very close to the Museum Insel and reasonably close to Alexanderplatz. The staff was friendly and helpful (though I did not ask for very much, as I only stayed one night). The only problem was that you are not supposed to use any electrical appliances in the room -- which is a bit inconvenient. Internet connection worked perfectly and easily (though can use only battery power) in the room. Oh and also the expedia price that I got did not include breakfast as it turned out (this was not clear to me when I booked) so that was a little inconvenient. But there are tons of cafes and restaurants in the area (kind of touristy area, where all servers speak English).
“smaller, comfy hotel in great location”
Great location and a very nice room. Staff were ok - i.e. "bare minimum helpful". The web description said: "complimentary high-speed (wired) Internet access in the room" which means only a broad band cable. I misinterpreted this as meaning it had wi-fi, and only had an e-tablet and so was unable to use the cable. When I asked reception if they had any adapters or suggestions they looked at me like I was from Mars, and the only person in the world who has ever had that problem of not bringing with them an adapter. (or am I?). They said I could use the wifi in the lobby but it was not very good. I did not use any other facilities (sauna, restaurant).
“Not as exciting as could be in Berlin”
I was disappointed on discovering that the hotel had taken my reservation and confirmed a room to me which was non-smoking, despite my having specially asked for a smoking room. I also did not get any assurance or apology on there being a mistake of sorts. It is reasonably centrally located though if you have only a night to spare, perhaps look for a hotel on a major road. Specially in contrast with the people in Berlin - who are amazingly charming, helpful, forever smiling and welcoming - I was surprised at the not so forthcoming support from them.
