Stayed here on a stopover - convenient drive from the airport and good one night basic accommodation. Not so convenient for the city - it's necessary to travel but not so far with the tram.

Good breakfast though...

Reviewed 5 July 2011

Stayed here for two nights in July. Its not a neighbourhood anyone would chose unless they had a reason to be in the area. That said its a quiet street, clean and close to transport links and a shopping mall.

The reception was fine, clean modern decor. The receptionist was not rude as some have experienced. It may be a cultural thing, Berliners rarely greet anyone with a smile or indulge in any niceties, they are straight-faced and efficient and this is considered good service!

The room was quite large by European standards. Its clean and the furniture is in good shape. Its Ikea style so all flat pack and MDF stuff but well maintained. Linen was very clean and beds (two singles pushed together to make a double German-style) are comfortable if a little soft. The ensuite batthroom while small is not cramped and also scrupulously clean.

Breakfast is a cold buffet. Again functional but nothing to regret if you miss it. The dining hall feels a bit like a school gym or cafeteria. It does have a nice outdoor terrace with lots of lovely flowering plants so that will be nice in good weather (it was raining the two days I was there).

Perhaps the only caveat is the soundproofing. Anyone talking in the corridor or opening a door sounds like they could be inside your room you hear it so clearly. And at this budget there are lots of families, mainly tourists from other parts of Germany or Europe so you hear the kids but its not like a backpacker hostel, no late night rowdies.

Internet is fast and free throughout the hotel. There is a small bar next to reception that opens in the evenings.

Room Tip: ask to be away from the street

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel and wish we stayed more! Very comfy hotel 4 stops out of the center of berlin, but very close to shops and stations. The staff were kind and helpful, plus it included a buffet breakfast.
Great if you want a less expensive place to stay with some privacy, it cost us the same as a hostel in berlin with 6 beds!

My husband and I (from Texas) were delighted to find a hotel so economical in Berlin!!! Our room was 55 Euros per night (the least expensive hotel in our 6-week European vacation). It included a huge breakfast buffet. The hotel is family run and the service was above and beyond what was necessary. Although the room was on the small side, it was totally adequate and super clean. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Berlin. Parking was also free.

We really enjoyed this clean, basic hotel. It was very close to the U/S-bahn station for convenient travel. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The only downside is that we had some car/train traffic noise in our room at night.
