I must say there are not much vices but no down sides either. Cosy and clean average size room. You can easily access big shopping mall just across the street.

Title says it all. The location is 8 minutes walk from the Ubahn at berlinerplaz and 10 minutes walk from the centre shopping area. I had a business room and paid far to much for it. It was to include internet but it was so slow it was unusable. The breakfast was poor for hotel standards and the only hot option was a boiled egg. I would go back as it was a very good location and it over looked a plaza area.

We were 5 Persons. We booked this hotel through online booking. We got a very good price. The location of hotel is great - Central though quiet. Just behind the hotel is a big shopping mall. Bus Stop is also a few steps from the hotel.

Very basic hotel; nice location, good breakfast. Friendly staff.

Negatives:
Small room w/out wardrobe or fridge, hard to accommodate spending more than one-two days, very dim sign on the façade - it was hard to find and we actually passed by a few times before we were able to find it.

Expensive and slow internet, although the receptionists regularly passed out free one hour passes for WiFi.

Stayed here with some friends for one night during a bike tour through the RheinRuhr-Area.
Location is good: Close to the shopping area and to the Colosseum-Theater. Just on the other side of the street you drop in an IKEA store - seems to be unique in the inner city.
We could lock our cycles in the garage of the hotel. Rooms were ok but really nothing special. Same applies for breakfast. Overall ok, but only for one or two nights.
