Adequate, but not 4.5 stars
Posted Sep 28, 2006
This is a large conference hotel out of the centre of town, but with good transport links (on the S Bahn, near Sonnenalle station - about half an hour to Unter den Linden; also on the 171 bus route from Schonefeld airport). The service is variable, as are the rooms. Once we had changed to the room we had booked (from the small musty twin in the furthest corner of the hotel) the room was comfortable. There was no aircon, iron or tea making facilities, only one bedside table and the toiletries were limited to a bottle of soap on the wall (which was not changed when empty). The hotel was generally very clean, but our sheets weren't changed even after a spillage. If you really need a room, this hotel would be fine, but don't expect 4 star quality.
