We stayed at this hotel after using the German Train station travel agent. He suggested this hotel telling us it was a 3 star location. It was far from 3 stars in my book. I will say it was clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was crazy small and not at all suited for small kids with 2 beds being bunk beds. All were twin size. The pillows were flat and lumpy. The bathroom was like being in an RV. We are not large people and my shoulders bumped the walls while in the loo and shower... The rails on the bunks were cardboard like wood- not very safe for a 5 year old to sleep in. We asked for a larger room but they said they could not help. We had a tough time getting the TV to work. When it did decide to turn on we couldn't really see it because the bunk bed blocked the view. The breakfast was very good. It seemed fresh with lots of choices and the staff was nice in the restaurant and at the front desk. My reason's for the low marks are the size of room- lumpy beds and pillows. It was also very cold. It seemed as though the heat cut off after 7pm. We had our heat turned up to the max and still were chilly.
There were a few ethnic type restaurants nearby and it was very close to the bus/train stop. I found this part of Berlin to be a bit dirty and run down compared with other parts of town that we saw. Lots of litter/broken glass ect. If you are looking for clean and cheap this is for you. If you are looking for a 3 star hotel....HA!! it's NOT! The photos posted on this site are exactly what our room looked like. Not at all like the official photos of their rooms. I will say that the rest of the hotel did look like the photos just not our room LOL!
