Our family stayed two nights while attending an Irish dance competition. This is a very basic hotel and met our basic needs.
Good points: terrific choice of restaurants nearby, from McDonald's to all sorts of ethnic food - look for the fully packed places as a quick recommendation! Easy to get to the U-bahn, three long blocks but not far if you know where you are going. Great breakfast, although there is the extra charge for this. Keyed entry works well - no keys to lose. Free wifi worked well most of the time, which probably had to do with saturation levels at peak times - problem with most places...
Challenging points: no room service - although the room was clean when we arrived, no one even tidied the room nor took out the trash - although the brochure in the room says there is daily cleaning. Only one pillow for the double bed - when I asked reception for another, I was told not possible, so bring an extra one if you need your own pillow to be comfortable. No shopping open in the area after 8 PM on Saturday, which means no ability to buy snacks and water until Monday morning. Hotel has a very limited vending machine - could use of few more options if nothing else is open for shopping.
