"Great Location, excellent value"
In the core of one of the most famous areas of Berlin. Few metres away from Checkpoint Charlie, the hotel is well kept, spotless clean and absolutely quiet at night. Breakfast is optional and will cost € 14 pp. but I suggest the surrounding cafés witch are plenty and diverse on theyr menus. I'll definitely booking again next year.
"No frills, clean, friendly hotel in the centre of Berlin"
I chose this hotel primarily for its central location, close to where I used to live when I worked in the former East Berlin. Nowadays the location, Stadt Mitte, really is in the centre of Berlin, close to the glorious Gendarmenmarkt with its two cathedrals and Palladian style concert hall. Friedrichstraße and Potsdamerplatz with their excellent shopping are few blocks away. The Museum Island and the prestigious Unter den Linden are within walking distance. The hotel belongs to the Novum group offering comfortable, no frills rooms, that are pleasantly decorated and spotlessly clean, with bathroom, TV , desk, and armchair. The bathroom is simple but adequate: do not expect large fluffy towels, bath robes and slippers though. The towels supplied do the job for which they are intended. And you will probably be buying your own bar of soap from a nearby Apotheke since the liquid soap supplied is one of those watery brands that might leave your skin dry. Breakfast is terrific. The first floor breakfast restaurant Is bright and offers great views down the Leipzigerstraße. Staff are helpful, friendly, attentive and efficient. Other guests appeared to be enjoying their stay as much as we did.
"Well placed but terrible breakfast service!"
My parents and I stayed at this hotel at the end of September. Our stay was well but the last day we had a terrible experience at breakfast time. Breakfast ends up normally at 11:30 a.m. but when we went to the breakfast room at 10:30 a.m. we found the glass door closed. There were just two people taking breakfast and one waitress saw us waiting at the door and she went on as if nothing had happened! I had to go down to the reception desk and ask them why the breakfast room was closed! The receptionist called to the breakfast room and then he told me that a guest should have closed the breakfast room door when leaving accidentally. I replied that a blond waitress had seen us waiting at the door and she had ignored us completely! When we came back to have breakfast the door was already open and I decided to tell the blond waitress called Manuela that she had had no respect for us. She did not answer anything and afterwards she was discussing with her colleagues about it and we heard: "Spanish people right '". Indeed, my family and I are from South America and we obviously speak Spanish, but we could not understand the connection between speaking Spanish and being insulted. Finally, we appreciated the attitude of the black waitress and the professionalism at the reception, specially coming from the Nicaraguan guy.
"Cheap, cheerful and great location"
I booked this for two nights cos it was cheap, and i was warned my room was small. But i thought it exceeded my expectations. You might struggle if you have more than one big suitcase, but it was clean and very comfortable. Everything worked. Hotel reception was excellent and the place seemed well run. Free Wifi worked well.
"Great location, strange but comfortable room."
A well situtaed hotel, close to many sites of interest and public transport links. The rooms are strange in that the shower cubicle is nearly in the centre of the room and that comes as a bit of a shock at first. However once over the shock, the room is ok, basic but good as long as you don't intend to do more than use it as a resting place. There is a fridge, safe and wi-fi but if you want a kettle you have to request the same. We didn't try the breakfast but plenty of places around to get coffee / rolls etc. The room cleaning service is excellent and generally the hotel is very well maintained. The test is, would we return, and the answer is yes as it is very clean, well run, comfortable, centrally located and very keenly priced.
