Very friendly staff and a lovely room that had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Great location in Friedrichshain very near the Frankfurter Tor U-Bahn station. Loved our stay here and would definitely return.
Our stay at the Arcadia was quiet,pleasant and affordable. We read many reviews of the property that tended to discourage,but the price was right so we booked it. We were glad that we did! The Arcadia is far enough out from AlexanderPlatz to not have the elbow to elbow foot traffic while being mere minutes away by u-bahn. Close by is BoxhagenerPlatz, well worth a leisurely stroll on Saturdays for the fresh produce and food market...then again on Sunday for the flea market.
Arcadia has uninspiring pillows,but there is a shop less than three blocks east on Frankfurter Allee that was selling mattresses and pillows....the pillows were roughly a quarter the size of our twin mattresses pushed together to form the king we booked( haha)...For eight euros a piece.So,no insurmountable pillow issues for us!
Ana, at the reception counter made us feel very welcomed not only to the hotel but to Berlin. In truth there was only one Arcadia employee who did not make us feel welcomed and that may have been the result of a "bad day" for her personally. All in all, we plan to book there again in the near future. Our first stay was for two weeks,plenty of time to get to know the property. Because of its location, we thank the Arcadia for giving us the opportunity to discover the east end of Friedrichshain, BoxhagenerPlatz , Humana at Frankfurter Tor ( next u-Hahn station west of SamariterStrasse station) and "Musti Doner" across the alley from Arcadias entrance. Rockin good times!
I really like the place, the staff spoke English very well, got me checked in in mins..room was clean, very tidy well laid out..bathroom was clean..shower floor as well..clean towels etc. Standard Internet was slow, but they give you options to upgrade for a few Euro's if you needed..TV was there is you need an extra Monitor to work..they clean my rm each day..bed was a bit hard for me because I have a memory foam at hm but by night 2 didn't notice it..over all great experience
Stayed here for four nights whilst attending a music festival at the nearby Astra venue. Really nice clean modern hotel. Check in was quick and easy .All the staff I encountered over the weekend were very helpful and friendly and spoke English. Rooms were spotless and cleaned to an excellent standard every day.. Nice comfortable beds and a massive shower. Really couldn't fault anything about this hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Super helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable and warm room. Hotel close to everything we needed (train station, restaurants, Mercedes Arena).
Restaurant serves delicious food and all has a very relaxed atmosphere.
Fantastic for a 'budget' hotel/hostel.
Would definitely book again if I were to go back to Berlin.
Formerly in East Berlin, the arrival of MTV Europe and other media companies has enhanced Friedrichshain’s reputation as one of the liveliest, most fashionable areas in Berlin. Its pubs, clubs and cafés centre round Boxhagener Platz and Simon-Dach-Strasse, and a long section of the Berlin Wall remains on Mühlen Strasse. Karl-Marx-Allee is a testament to Stalinist architecture; the Volkspark Friedrichshain houses the Brothers Grimm Fountain.
