of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
"Comfortable and modern"
I chose this hotel among recommendations from the Quadriga organisation in the same block, where I attended a professional workshop. The hotel is certainly up to the international standard, and is priced fairly. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and comfortable. I loved the rocking chair. The location is quite close to Unter Den Linden, St. Hedwig's Church, Uni Humboldt, etc.
"Small changes make a difference and take away stars"
I have stayed many many times in this hotel and like its location, its service, the rooms - despite the rather strange furniture and carpet- and above all: its breakfast! The breakfast is wonderful and fresh, many fruits, good bread, smoothies, a variety of müslis and many more good things. Only the flower decor on the table is not as lovely as it used to be. After a difficult period several years ago, the internet works very well and reliable! But the hotel has decided to change its bed sheets. Now, they use plastic covers to protect their beds and this is very uncomfortable, makes you sweat and you wonder, why you sleep so poorly! They have also changed their cushions to a cheaper version. If John F. cannot offer the former bed quality I will opt for another hotel in the neighbourhood, like many of my colleagues have done already! Too bad, because I am quite attached to this place and have only used other places, when John F. was fully booked (often), in the past years.
"BUSINESS TRIP TO BERLIN"
The Arcotel John F/ Berlin is a modern hotel that is located near the city, not far from the Concert Hall where one of the cities orchestras is located. The hotel is clean and airy with loads of windows allowing natural light into its ground floor. It has a Dining Room with a good menu which is reasonably priced and a fully stocked Bar. The staff were extremely helpful especially Vanessa and Jessica at the reception desk. I was on a promotional trip for our airport and had perishable food stuffs which needed refrigeration. Jessica kindly arranged to have these foods stored in the hotels kitchen. there were 34 of us in our party and as we were leaving at 5am on the day of our departure and the kitchen would not be open that early Jessica and Vanessa arranged to have a breakfast boxes for all 34 of our party. We were very grateful for this kind gesture. I have no hesitation in recommending this modern hotel and look forward to returning there again soon.
"Great location, good breakfast, nice bar"
Situated next door to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the heart of Berlin, this hotel is perfectly located. Friendly reception, good rooms, nice bar and as usual in Germany an excellent breakfast made for a very comfortable stay. Very good value for what you pay. Only draw back: The immediate surroundings are quiet in the evening, no shopping and hardly any bars or restaurants. But that’s easily weighed up by the quality of the hotel, public transport is steps away and taxis are everywhere and cheap.
"As central as it gets..."
This modern, stylish hotel is bang in the centre of Berlin. A 10 minute stroll east or west will put you in Alexanderplatz or on Friedrich Strasse/Unter den Linden. Bus, U and S Bahn connections are first rate, so getting about the city from this base is a breeze. Even the relatively cosy Comfort class rooms are spacious enough for a relaxed stay - after all, you'll be out exploring Berlin most of the time. The beds are particularly comfortable, and the huge walk-in shower (no tub) is a delight. All staff members I spoke with couldn't have been more helpful. Checking in & out was swift & hassle free. Highly recommended - I'll be back.
