I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. I have no complaints other than my usual frustration with nearly all hotels in Germany, this being that given the opportunity, hotel staff will visit your room with every chance they get.
This is one hotel which does have a deadbolt on the door and I suggest you take advantage of it at all times you are in your room. I cannot recall now how many times after housekeeping had left, that I had forgotten to lock the door with the deadbolt that some various member of staff would unlock the door with their pass key (this hotel uses security cards that you simply pass before the mechanism on the door to activate the lockset) and then say hello, before coming on into the room. I just can't understand their frequent need to enter a guest room. But anyway, aside from this, it is a comfortable hotel, with bus and tram service directly outside the front door, they have a small cafe in the lobby area and a helpful English speaking staff, even the housekeeping speaks English. They will try and cater to whatever you need and the rates are very fair. The TV isn't much to watch, but you aren't supposed to be in your room anyway, you are supposed to be out seeing the sites. But I've stayed in plenty of hotels which get more channels than this hotel. If you expect the sheets to be changed every day or every other day, you should request this at the desk, because I'm not sure mine were changed during my stay. But I'm sure they will, if you request it
Unique Quality: I am used to hotels which say that they have a workout room or small gym, and I don't use these facilities at hotels, but I took a moment to have a look at their gym which is located on the second floor and although it is not a mega gym, they do have what you need to get you through your stay. Except for any aerobic equipment. But they have decent weightlifting equipment and a few pieces of it.
Also, if it is important for you, they have a computer set up in the Alcudia Room on the 4th floor, for which you must purchase a Internet card from the front desk for either your choice of 6 or 10 Euro, but I consider this to be very expensive as I frequently make use of computer kiosks in Germany and that 6 or 10 Euro is gone quickly and you must work fast to get anything done. If you are planning on sending a few emails or checking for some, or dealing with your finances or whatever while away from home, expect to use that card and perhaps need more than one. Berlin is affluent with Internet cafes and except for the convenience of having access right in the hotel, you would be better off to check out one of the public ones that you will see everywhere.
I would stay there again though, so why shouldn't I recommend it to you.
