The hotel was in a great, quiet location, close to public transportation. We were only in Berlin for two days so we had to cram in a lot of sightseeing and this hotel was a perfect base. the decor is definitely outdated, but the rooms are very clean and very comfortable. There was free parking on site, which was fantastic and rare in Europe. The lady at the front desk when we checked in was very friendly and helpful with directions and sightseeing recommendations. The reason I only gave the staff a 3 out of 5 was because of the experience we had at the included in the price breakfast. I was traveling with my parents and my 4 month old baby. We decided to split up breakfast with my parents going first and then my mom coming back and watching the baby while my dad kept me company at breakfast. The staff working the room were rude to my father because it was his second trip down - never mind the fact that he only had coffee the second trip and couldn't even sit down because it was so crowded. Or that we had two rooms with double occupancy allowances and the baby obviously wasn't eating. Other than that I have no complaints. If you get a really good price, don't hesitate to book.

This hotel provided good, basic accomodation which was close to a U-Bahn station and within walking distance ( quite long ) of The Tier Garten, Zoo and other places of interest.Our room, a standard twin, was at the back of the hotel and overlooked a courtyard and so was very quiet. The room itself was on the small side but, as we mainly spent all our time out, this was not important to us. The shower room was inside the room,in the corner, which contributed to the room feeling a little small. This room was kept very clean and fresh towels provided daily. The breakfast was excellent. Served buffet style, there was a large choice of bread, meats, fruit, cereals,cheese etc plus unlimited juices and drinks available from machines. Don't be put off by this. All the drinks were of good quality and of appropriate temperature. The staff were helpful and, on the whole, there was no language difficulty. Although the hotel does not have a restaurant, immediately outside the hotel entrance is the Cayenne,a cocktail bar/ Restaurant which provides good meals throughout the day and until quite late at night. It seemed to be a popular place. Overall, for a no-frills place to stay, this was a good hotel.

The hotel is nice and the rooms are all renovated. They are clean and the service was very good. It is on a quiet neighborhood, and although we had to keep our windows open, because it was hot and there was no air conditioning, we didn't have a problem sleeping. There is parking available in the hotel for a reasonable fee, and there was some free parking around the block. The hotel is close to Kurfurstendam, a nice street with a lot of shops and restaurants around.
Hotel located in a quite residential area just two minutes from Konstanzer metro station [ U7 Bahn line ]. The breakfast was very good with a wide choice of meats and cheeses [ don't expect fried eggs and bacon, this is Germany ]. Reception desk personnel were extremely friendly and very helpful. Large comfortable room and beds, very clean. No bar or lounge area. Five minute walk to the Kurfursten, the Regent Street of Berlin. Overall excellent value for money.
For getting around Berlin buy either the all zone ABC day ticket €7.20 or the AB central zone day ticket €6.70 for unlimited travel on the trains, metro, buses or trams. Tickets can be purchased in advance from Tourist Offices and at stations. Don't forget to validate before start of journey. A visit to Potsdam is a must [ SW of the city ].

"Service disappointing, facilities and value great"
This is my second review of this hotel, as I feel compelled to update my earlier opinion. I've now spent around 30 nights here in the last 3 months and am continually disappointed regarding the hotel staff and the condition of some of the rooms.
My list of issues include being charged for breakfast on two occasions, when my booking clearly indicated it was included. No amount of complaint or logic was acknowledged or accepted by the reception staff and I had to go directly to Expedia for a refund. I even asked them to check the booking the second time around but the guy's English was so bad, I'm not sure he understood.
Non-functional, broken and dirty facilities are the norm: the common areas continue to look shabby; the windows and curtains on the stairs are filthy; the toilet seats tend to be loosely attached (in Room 101, the seat is broken); and the sink plugs rarely work properly. The taps and showerheads need to be descaled too. Most of the pillows need replacement. The single duvets should be double or kingsize to match the beds. I would complain but I know it will fall on deaf ears (or be misunderstood).
However, I keep going back because I love the décor, the large TVs, the storage space, the desks, the beds, the fridges, the heating/cooling system and the small balcony outside each room. I tolerate the flaws as the price is genuinely good value.

This hotel is really more like an nice old-fashioned "pension." It was on the second floor of a building in a good neighborhood. The single room was tiny but completely sufficient for one night. Don't expect anything but a clean room and a just ok twin bed. I would only stay there again if I had a quick one-niter in Berlin. The staff was very friends; the breakfast was just ok. Thanks.
Part of the borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf since 2001, Wilmersdorf offers visitors a quiet option in the heart of Berlin. Boasting a variety of cafes and restaurants, the neighborhood is also home to the Kirche am Hohenzollernplatz. This iconic church is considered one of the finest examples of Brick Expressionism and its striking design has earned it the nickname God's Powerhouse.
