"Great location and views"
I had a great stay in one of their fronted rooms overlooking the street. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was perfect to start a busy day in Berlin. It is week located on the train lines and close to great restaurants and nightlife.
If you're visiting Berlin for the first time, this hotel is a good option, as it's located in the Mitte area - at the centre of the city. Most cultural and historical attractions are nearby. Amenities are basic and adequate, bed is comfortable, has nice view, and staff is friendly. The only issue was the Wi-Fi, which wasn't working at times.
We stayed at the Arcotel Velvet Hotel in Berlin for a few days toward the end of October 2016. Location was great and so was the hotel desk staff. I found it on a Conde Naste list of top hotels in Berlin. What we found very disappointing is that the hotel seems very tired. Both the hallway and room carpets seem old and frayed making the hotel have a musty smell on the hallways. It was the only hotel of our recent stay in Europe in which we were less than impressed. Additionally, since we were leaving on a very early flight, we checked out the night before. When we got back home and checked our credit card, it looks like they double charged us. We emailed them a few days ago about it (it's happened a couple times to me and it generally gets resolved immediately) and I still have not heard back.
"Average hotel - though winning on its location"
Be aware - a big building site next to it; noisy, and we couldn't change room. Hotel is fine with spacious rooms. Breakfast is okay. Location though is really great - just 2 min from the busy Friedrichstrasse and 7-8 min walk from Hackeschen Höfe.
"Expecting more ..."
Stated in this hotel for 2 nights but was not so impressed. Rooms are ok size but have an open bath. Also the noise outside was considerable from public transport and construction. There is also a place nearby that played music rather loud. Breakfast was very good. I felt the rooms could be cleaner especially the carpet looked rather siffy.
