Bad wi-fi and very cold room
Posted Feb 19, 2016
If you're looking for convenience, this hotel is right in front of an M train that will take you to Alexandraplatz in 5 minutes, so there's that.
But I had a number of major issues that I would never have expected from a hotel at such a price:
- Terrible wifi. I really needed decent wi-fi while staying here, and their wi-fi was so poor and intermittent that I had to leave the hotel and find a cafe open past 6pm to sit down and type away emails.
- The room was reaaaally cold. It was around 0 C during my stay in Berlin, so I'd expect my room to shelter me from the outside cold. No such luck. I needed to wear extra layers in the room itself.
- This wasn't an issue for me, but I'll mention it for those that might be turned off by it: my room was on the 5th floor and there are no elevators.
All in all, a serious let-down considering the price. Might as well have booked a hostel instead for the same kind of experience.
