            Service was polite and friendly.

            This was a very disappointing hotel- the worse that I have stayed in for a long while. It is a 2 star hotel masquerading as a 4 star hotel. It is looking a bit run down - all the plants outside the hotel were dead. Room was very utilitarian - stark and poorly equipped (no closet, no shampoo - showering gel was a poor substitute for shampoo). The room looked over a garbage tip - literally! The bed was hard and lumpy and most uncomfortable. The neighborhood was unbelievably noisy - grating alternative music until 3am. Area was most unpleasant - full of drug dealers and prostitutes and a multitude of graffiti. I guess a good hotel for young swingers but little to comment it otherwise.

            I like everything, the room, the bath room and everything. It is near to the Uban station.

            Breakfast is not very good.

            Nice to have that Shower-room should be closed with сurtain for a bath.

            I very like apple in the room as appriciation.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Location is very good! Mitte is one of the best areas in Berlin for couples and group / solo travellers (not for families with children). Hotel suites have huge views over the city, both directions. Suites are large enough, have good facilities and are also quiet, even when the bedroom is on the street side. Coffee & bagel -breakfast is nice. Lots of nice small restaurants and bars nearby. Very international feeling combined with the open German friendliness (although the hotel itself is Austrian). Good traffic connections - tram & U-bahn around the corner.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            I liked the view over the main street, its design, the location right in the centre of the city, as well as its athmosphere

            The large bottle of water outside the minibar, on the table. We assumed that it was a free gift from the hotel, but actually it was not, and we paied almost 6 euros for a bottle that we could have bought in front of the hotel at less than half price !

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Location is very handy, close to Friederich Strasse, shops and public transport. Several different types of restaurant are in the immediate vicinity .Our room was clean,comfortable and spacious. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

          • Couple
            10.0

            The location is great. The décor is nice and the bar serves excellent cocktails

            If your room is on the main street it may get a little bit noisy on Friday and Saturday night because of all the restaurants and bars in front of the hotel (however it's quite well sound-proof)

          • Older travelers

            The hotel staffs are friendly. The facilities are good with free of charge internet used in room.

            5.8

            good price for a hotel with a central location. many restaurants nearby. mini kitchen was nice, and view was perfect.

            Not really a 4 star hotel. Everything was ok, but only that. We had the suite but it felt more like an apartment. beds were sooo hard. very warm rooms, only air conditioning in bedroom.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            This is a lovely hotel with really friendly, helpful staff. I had originally booked a smoking room & they gave me a nonsmoking room, they changed it the next day, when one came available.Tip: verify with hotel that you have a smoking room if you require, as Booked.net seem to only make this a 'request'. Our room looked out onto the main street, but the windows seemed to block the noise quite well. The breakfast was fine to get you going in the morning. The beds were comfortable & the room was was large enough & well air conditioned. The price was great for what we recieved.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Very comfortable rooms. Interesting design.

            Awful breakfast!! We should be confirmed about breakfast only take a way. Plastic glasses and disgusting sangwiches. No word about that on booking. To loud music from the next building during the weekend. It was impossible to sleep. We stayed 4 days and no soap and shampoo in our room. But our friends stayed in another room and there was everthing

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            I thought the hotel was very good and the location in the Mitte was perfect for getting around all of Berlin both by foot and by public transportation.

            In one of the rooms we had the bathtub was very high with nothing to hold on to as you both stepped into it and out of it after a shower. The only other thing we didn't like was the lack of choice at breakfast. The bagels looked great for lunch but not everyone wants the fillings (same both times we stayed at the hotel) and the blueberry muffins were obviously preferred over the chocolate chip ones because they disappeared by 8.30 with no more to come. Plain bagels with butter/Jam or choice of fillings would be great or get more blueberry muffins.
