Very convenient hotel with charm
Posted Nov 19, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel was good value for money and excellently placed near Potsdamer Platz and many sights were within robust walking distance. It also had excellent transport links to the airports with trains, buses and UBahn nearby. There was plenty of modestly priced eating nearby and two excellent, cheap restaurants serving German specialities practically next door. Our room was very large with a 4 poster bed, Chaise, 2 armchairs desk etc. However it was to the front which was noisy. We thought of asking to move to the back but enjoyed the fading elegance of the room so much that we decided to put up with the traffic noise. We got used to it. The hotel fittings are not modern but it had a certain fading elegance and all the essentials worked very well, our room also had tea and coffee making facilites. The staff were very efficient and helpful. We thought the Altberlin excellent value for money and not the usual sterility of modern chains.
