We've just spent 4 nights at the comfortable elegant and modern Arcotel Velvet. The rooms were well-appointed; the tea and coffee making facilities (topped up daily) were particularly appreciated. Breakfast was excellent, copious and extensive, of high quality. The views out the front were unparalleled. We understand that the ones facing the back have no view at all. The central location couldn't be beaten; 2 tram lines were just outside, and the metro a few hundrd meters away. The main station was only 10 minutes away by tram. The immediate neighbourhood was fascinating historically, and lively; dozens of cafes and restaurants to choose from. But the Velvet's greatest asset is its personable and helpful staff. Marcel and Celena were particularly sparkling, and devoted to enhancing our visit. The only niggle was that the room temperature, due partly to those dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, was difficult to control.

The company I work for use this hotel for us every time we come to Berlin I stayed here three years ago and there was no trouble. This time it seems like the Hotel was falling apart. The big one being no hot water one day and I'm not sure how long it was out for because we had to leave. They charged me extra for my wife, which I was told was ok by my employers I am checking now to see if we were double charged. They offer a breakfast for 15 euro and you can get a better breakfast next door at the cafe for only 7. The staff were all rude except the person working late night she was helpful and cheerful, the rest of the staff always made us feel like we were bothering them with any questions. My company is now going with a different hotel for our business.

I have never stayed at an hotel before where they refuse to give you an iron or ironing board and instead insist it is a chargeable service!!! Absolutely appalling service and now I have a business meeting to attend with a crumpled shirt

We arrived very early. The room was not ready, but check in and luggage store were a breeze. Because of proximity to river it was easy to orientated and find the hop on hop off bus. I loved the floor to ceiling windows and the used of gauze curtains in the wash area. Big, leakproof power shower with instant temperature control. Hotel recently refurbished. Lovely new carpet smell and plenty of power sockets. Good wife speed. Berlin was having something of a heatwave, but ac was EXCELLENT. Also in the dining area which was in part open plan to the street. The immediate street area was somewhat grubby, but with just a minute to the river this did not bother us and in fact gave us an insight into the layers of life that are Berlin. We hired bikes directly from the hotel. Brilliant city bikes with great locks. Did not check if price was competitive, but were really pleased with the bikes. The young German staff were an inspiration and a pleasure

So easy to get to from Schonefeld airport on the train.Underground station across the street.We had a spacious room at the back of the hotel.Unfortunately our view was of the other rooms and of the building site. It was fine though as the noise from the building site was minimal and we spent very little time in there.Very clean and the shower was so powerful with available toiletries and clean towels daily if needed. We really enjoyed breakfast.Selection of cereals,breads,fruit,meats,pancakes and cheeses.Plenty of places to eat in the area and walking distance into the city. The staff were very welcoming.We are hoping to return again in October and will definitely stay here.
