Mostly would like to rave about man at front desk who helped us check in and out. Could not have been nicer, more helpful, efficient, etc. (Did not get his name).
Hotel is close to train station amd bus. It is not near sightseeing, but near shopping. Wifi was good. Apples at front desk. Small fitness center. Conditioner in room.
Stayed over a weekend. Hotel staff were great and very helpful. Massive fish tank is a great feature of the hotel. Highly recommend getting a room that faces the tank.
Didn't think 25 euros was an acceptable charge for breakfast. Nice cafés and bakeries next door which are much cheaper that the breakfast rate
The hotel had a very friendly atomsphere as soon as we set foot. The staircase gave the room a beautiful centre piece and room was great. My only issue was the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get out!
We booked a superior room for 3 nights and stayed on the 10th floor in room 1012, which was very spacious and in a quiet part of the hotel. They were very attentive and accommodated our requests. It was also my partners birthday and we came back to the room to find a cake on the day we arrived and on his birthday as well! The hotel has a wonderful pool, even if not too warm. Breakfast was fantastic with huge choice of breads. Location is not very central, but we walked to the centre in 45 minutes and only 15 minutes on the overground. Trip from the airport is only 20 minutes on the X9 bus which stops at the Berlin Zoo. Plenty of shops to browse near the hotel if you fancy some shopping. Would stay again.
"Lovely central Berlin hotel with wonderful pool!"
We visited Berlin at the middle of November for a long weekend for a birthday. We go to Berlin a lot but had never stayed at this hotel before. We picked it out because it was very convenient to get to (X9 bus from Tegel Airport to the Zoo Station (Zoologischer Garten); 200 bus from there to Budapester Strasse), good central location, big pool and there was a great rate for our four night stay including flights. We usually choose boutique and non-chain hotels and we feared this might be a bit "samey" but we really loved it. Excellent service, that wonderful Berlin atmosphere and humour, hotel very very spacious and clean and we had a wonderful large, quiet room which included tea and coffee-making facilities. For info there is English and German TV in the room (and maybe other languages) and the staff speak excellent English. We hope to go back next Christmas for the markets.
