Nice hotel close to kurfurstendamm but...
Posted Mar 23, 2015
on arrival, the facade is very cute there is a nice looking restaurant (where i have not eaten) and a flower shop which is cute too.
The courtyard is quite impressive.
the lobby is a bit old fashioned, i wondered if they tried to keep the brutalist look of just decided not to change it from the previous decor (basically it depends on your taste).
I did not feel any enthusiasm at my arrival from the receptionist but it was quite late, and i believe there is a slight coldness with Berliners that remains polite so you can't really say they are not friendly cause they warm up quite fast.
the room was quite nice, decor was rationalist, slightly dated but was not bad in the first place.
The room was comfortable and quite big and the price i paid was reasonable.
However i felt the cleanliness was to be reviewed, it was clean but all the taps were full of lime scale, so much that i could barely turn the level to change from shower to bath (bath tub was way too big, even though nice looking, to run a proper bath).
So i would say it is over all a nice hotel with a good price (at the time i booked) but the whole lime scale thing put me off a bit, i am not sure i will book again unless the price is still good then.
