“Not too bad if cost is a key consideration”
Not your typical hotel. It is a modified old building with shops on the ground floor. The room was small especially the bathroom, about 1 metre X 1 metre. To get to the reception you must climb 2 flights of stairs. Outside the reception, there is an old elevator that can take you higher. However, getting into the elevator with 2 suitcases is a challenge. It was usually easier to simply take the stairs. You can use the train to get to the hotel from the airport. The hotel is about 200 yards from Victoria Luisse Platz Metro/U Bahn Stop. However, part of the way is on cobbled stones, so it can be a challenge with heavy suitcases. If staying for more than a day, buy the Berlin card and use it to travel around Berlin including to/from the airport. We didn't take the breakfast option but opted to eat (like most of the locals) in the pastry shop just around the corner. The owner of the pastry shop, a very jovial chap, was French and spoke German with an accent, very reminiscent of the lead character from the comedy series "Allo Allo"
