Noisy street, just OK
Posted Jul 12, 2016 on Hotels
This is a reasonable mid-price hotel in a nondescript part of Berlin (near the old boundary between East and West) but I wouldn't book it again. It's spacious as we booked a family apartment style. BUT it's on a very busy street and there is no air-conditioning, so that was problematic -- you had to choose between a lot of noise (heavy tram lines below window) and having some air. The hotel did have fans, which you could get on request. We asked to move, but the front desk didn't get back to me and after that I just dropped it (told them the next day never mind but it was disappointing there was no communication on it). The decor is somewhat tired, frankly, and the pullout sofa was quite uncomfortable. I think it would be lot nicer to be on the garden side, so if you want this hotel ask to book NOT on the street. Location is great for transport -- just steps from both U-Bahn and S-Bahn stops. But it's pretty far from the central tourist area, so you couldn't really walk around the main things.
