We stayed at Lodging on the Square for our first time. It was a great place to stay, It is right in town, you can walk to all the Berlin shops, the breakfast was very good. We were also traveling with a pet and they are pet friendly. We will be staying there again in the future.

We had a wonderful stay, other than the smoke alarm malfunctioning at 1:30 in the morning. But they got it stopped, and we all resumed our sleeping. Had a wonderful breakfast both days. Would definitely stay there again. It is so close to everything. Could walk to all the shops.

This was my first time visiting the area. The Square was a perfect location and the staff was very friendly. (we also received free cookies when we checked in) However, When we first walked in our room it smelled a bit musty, and there were stains on the carpet. The beds needed to be updated. The mattress was old and...
