Great hotel for a weekend stay!Posted Aug 18, 2013
Pros: Fantastic breakfast. Clean and well maintained.
Cons: Separate building for the mediterranean rooms.
Location: Located some distance from the city centre, however the hotel was chosen to be close proximity to a friend's apartment in Berlin
Surprised upon arrival to discover that the Mediterranean rooms of the hotel are located in a separate building across a courtyard/carpark. The separate building is however, the location of the breakfast room so this was very convenient in the morning. The receptionist was welcoming and helpful upon arrival, however whilst deciding upon a drink at the bar on the last night she was confrontational as a friend perused the spirits on offer (almost accusatory that he was about to help himself). This was far from the case!! The breakfast on offer is excellent and the staff were very efficient and helpful with provision of fresh coffee and replacing any items/crockery that had run out. The continental breakfast was fresh and appetising including cold meats, cheese, smoked salmon, yoghurts, cereals, pastries, bread and fruit juice. The room was clean and spacious, although the room we were allocated (Room 203) was at the far side of the building and was narrow in width compared to our friends whose room felt more spacious being more square in shape. The only criticism (which we did not complain about) was that there was some candle wax on one of the duvet covers. The rooms were very well cleaned each day by the cleaning staff. We did not have any experience of eating at the hotel's restaurant during out long weekend stay so are not able to provide a review of their food. The hotel is conveniently located and easily accessed by public transport (Tram and train nearby).

Trendy Boutique HotelPosted Jul 16, 2013
Pros: Staff, breakfast.
Cons: Housekeeping - we had three of us over three days and were never given new towels or shampoo.
Location: Walk south on Ptersburger, over the bridge, for nightlife.
NEWBERLIN is a cute hotel with a super friendly staff. I only would complain about location. It's difficult as a tourist to pinpoint where to be in Berlin. This hotel was about a 25 minute walk from happening Kruezberg and 25 or 30 minutes the other direction with get you to Mitte. Which is not bad at all once or twice, but it makes going to your room throughout the day to change or whatnot a little tricky. Staff gave us directions to various places, helped us print our boarding passes, held our bags after checkout (late flight) etc. Free breakfast was much better than most hotels I've been to. Not the fastest WiFi ever, but free so we survived.

Excellent stay!!Posted Jun 13, 2013
Pros: The comfort and luxury of the room, plus friendly, helpful staff
Location: In the area of Friedrichshain but close to public transport into the centre of the city for all of the sights.
From the moment you enter the hotel, you know you are in a quality establishment. The staff are extremely polite, welcoming and helpful. The room I had was one of the Design rooms which is a little piece of luxury for about £70 a night for me. The Design rooms which are the newest come with a very comfortable double bed, flatscreen TV on the wall with Sky, plenty of space to put your belongings, a safe, a well stocked minibar and a modern en-suite. The rooms are to a very high standard indeed. Great to come back to after a long day in the city. The breakfast each morning takes place across a courtyard and is fantastic, setting you up for the day. You probably would not require much more than a snack at lunchtime as there is so much on offer, catering for everyone. There is a bar and a restaurant with good food in the hotel with room service available - to your room in about 20-30 minutes. When my train home was cancelled due to the flooding, having booked a flight home, the receptionist happily printed my boarding pass off for me, rounding off what was an excellent stay. Further out from the centre in the area of Friedrichshain but never far from the great public transport network. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great location, 5 main away from Alexanderplatz, close to all the cool places including great Shopping in Mitte. Perfect for a quick get away

Nice but...Posted Apr 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
What is up with the see-through bathroom doors? No one wants to see what someone else is doing in there. This created a lot of awkward moments.
In Berlin to visit the Velodrome !Posted Jan 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel and staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful and the food both in the evening and at breakfast was very good indeed. Particularly at breakfast, there was plently of it which made the need for a mid-day meal almost unnecessary. We went specifically to an event at the Velodrome which is perfect at a 15 minute walk but there is little else nearby in the way of tourist sites. However, the trams into town are reasonably priced, fast and regular so it was no problem to get into the centre of Berlin in less than 20 minutes from the hotel as the tram stop is very close. The hotel is smaller than many which is a good thing as far as we were concerned and the accomodation was spotless and very warm - very welcome as it was well below freezing in January when we visited !

Great hotel for everyonePosted Sep 18, 2012
Pros: Breakfast was my favourite thing
This hotel was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable and breakfast was fantastic!! There are two buildings to the hotel and we stayed in the one away from the main road, this had a quiet and calming atmosphere. The hotel has a couple of places to eat nearby and a few cafe/come pubs however the main place for nightlife is a short tram ride south ( only about 4/5 stops) and then a short walk across the river. The hotel is easy to get to from AlexanderPlatz again only about 4 stops on the Uban and then 2 stops on the tram therefore easy access for transport to tourist attractions. Our main holiday plans were to experience the Berlin Clubs and to see the tourist things but wanted to stay somewhere nice and quiet too. This hotel was ideal!
