Great location & room-set up for family of 5

5 out of 5
Posted Oct 30, 2016
Location: Near to all main sites, near to the rivers to walk by and a quick walk to the scheunenviertel area too for a nice change of pace and character.
Accepting this isn't a conventional hotel with a bar area, etc. this is a great location near to all main sites and areas about 10 minutes walk from Alexanderplatz. We walked everywhere, East Side Gallery, Reischtag, Brandenburg, Tiergarten, etc. etc. etc. Hotel team were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and wi-fi good, nice and quiet, etc. The area is quaint, all cobbled streets - little gift shops and pubs. Restaurants immediately nearby aren't cheap or great - we found better value up by some of the busier sites - but breakfast at tout-sweet is recommended. Good base near what you might want to do on a short-break.

Very nice 3 star apartment/hotel would stay again

4 out of 5
Posted Sep 27, 2015
The location is excellent. The family room we had was very clean. The entrance is very small, although there is a flag out front to identify it. Reception is a small desk on the 1st floor. No lobby, but the receptionists were very friendly and informative. The room was spacious and very clean. Nice touch was the complimentary toiletries, and tea and coffe tray. And we had a lovely balcony. The room got a little warm at night, so we slept with the windows cracked. Trucks rumbled in for what I assumed were deliveries to the nearby restaurants shortly after 6am, but the noise didn't last long, and wouldn't be an issue at all in cooler months with the windows closed. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone that is looking for space, location, and cleanliness - and isn't bothered by the lack of facilities. We enjoyed our stay.

Nice hotel in great area in Berlin

5 out of 5
Posted Dec 4, 2014
When I booked hotel I didn't realize it was in the oldest areas of Berlin - wanted to be close to Alexander Platz and Mitte areas. It was in a great area surrounded by quaint streets and shops/restaurants. We were able to walk to Museum Island and all around Berlin. Accommodations were great and would highly recommend - Thank you

Hidden gem, in the heart of Berlin

5 out of 5
by from Newcastle, NSW
Posted Feb 7, 2014
Pros: New and modern facilities, in an old world area of Berlin. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Location: St Nikolai Church is close, 20 minute walk to the Brandenburg Gate or a shorter walk to Alexanderplatz to take the U or S Bahn anywhere in Berlin.
A new hotel, in an older 'village style' part of Berlin. Room was spacious and modern, with all the facilities you could need. Within walking distance of some great restaurants. A short walk to Alexanderplatz for the U and S Bahn.

Bellissima posizione

5 out of 5
by from bari
Posted Dec 20, 2016
Pros: La posizione, il silenzio, la pulizia.
Cons: Reception h 24
Location: Posizione dell'hotel nella zona più antica di Berlino. Vicino Alexander Platz
L'hotel si trova, amio avviso, nella migliore zona di Berlino, in quanto vicinissimo ad Alexander Platz, quindi a meno di 500 metri da una metro centralissima, ma soprattutto nella parte più antica di Belino, denominata Nikolai Viertiel, ossia un quadrilatero molto piccolo di strade pedonali con boutique e ristoranti. Le stanze sono abbastanza grandi, pulitissime e silenziose. Vi è anche in dotazione un tablet per collegarsi alla rete wi-fi, che è ottima anche se credo non permetta , almeno alcune volte, di collegare molti dispositivi contemporaneamente, che è ciò che è successo a noi, ma anche ad altri ospiti, che abbiamo sentito andare a riferire in reception di questo problema. Per il resto la stanza dispone di tutti i comfort, comprese cassaforte, asciugacapelli etc. L'unico neo è il fatto che la reception è aperta solo dalle 9 alle 21, quindi in caso di arrivi sul tardi, c'è una semplice procedura di self check in (che viene spiegata in un messaggio mail che mandano prima della partenza), ma non c'è nessuno che ti accoglie. Infine, va detto che l'hotel è una via di mezzo fra un albergo e un residence, nel senso che, a parte il discorso della reception non aperta h 24, non dispone di colazione, che si può tranquillamente fare nei tanti bar nei dintorni. Giudizio complessivo molto positivo.

Klein aber oho

5 out of 5
Posted Feb 11, 2015
Pros: Der freundliche und persönliche Service und die ruhige Lage.
Cons: Nein, weitermachen... :-)
Location: Gleich in der Nähe ist z.B. der Fernsehturm, gut zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Wir waren nur eine Nacht in diesem Hotel. Ich habe schon des öfteren in Berlin übernachtet, aber dies war das erste Hotel, wo man persönlich zum Zimmer gebracht und alles erklärt wurde. Klein aber dafür sehr freundlich und persönlich. Auch die Lage ist sehr gut, Parkhaus gleich um die Ecke, Parkplätze ebenfalls keine 100m weg, sehr ruhig gelegen. Leider kein Frühstück im Hotel möglich, aber 50m weiter gibt es 3 Gaststätten, wo man gut Abendessen und Frühstücken kann. Gegen Vorlage des Zimmerschlüssels erhält man dort 10% Rabatt. Ich kann das Hotel nur empfehlen.
