                      its location, cleanliness and accommodations as we paid for a hotel room and received a residence for the same price

                      some staff members of reception didn't direct us to proper elevator to our room (there were two elevator locations for two different entrances) and also they didn't know locations of various tourist sites nearby, even to Checkpoint Charlie....

                      Well-located in Berlin Mitte for many major sights, attractions and shopping all within walking distance. Two U-bahn metro stops within a short walk to explore the city further. The hotel was clean, comfortable and well-furnished and the staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

                      Excellent staff. Huge rooms, good isolation. Proximity to the metro and within walking distance to main tourist site.

                      WiFi is not free in the rooms! Breakfast - bit expensive, could not judge quality/quantity though. Anyway, it is possible to have decent breakfast in the area for a lot less than 18 euro.

                      Close location to the U Bahn and city sights. Very competant and helpful staff. Large well appointed rooms. Superb breakfast included in the room rate. Excellent bar.

                      Ideal location, easy access to all Berlin's top sites, very friendly and welcoming staff - nothing was too much trouble. Very good room facing onto internal courtyard with a small balcony - very quiet at night, good to have a safe in the room and a small fridge with mini-bar which we didn't touch, Instead go to nearby Kaisers supermarket to stock up e.g. cheap bottles of water and store them in the fridge.All together a very good place to stay and we would thoroughly recommend it!!

                      Only drawbacks - few minor niggles...breakfast at 18euros each - looked good but too expensive, Instead go 2-3 mins down the road to the Aroma cafe for a good and much cheaper deal.If you don't want breakfast make sure you tell them on check-in....and the bottles of water in the room are pricey as well (see Kaisers above)...not much in the way of toiletries in the (very good otherwise) separate shower room. Nothing to spoil a very good Easter break.

                      The room is exceptionally large for European hotels. Great value for money. Really feel like a four-star hotel. Helpful and humorous staffs. Would stay there next time in Berlin!

                      The breakfast costs 18 EUR, which is a bit too expensive for Berlin. But you can find nice breakfast with reasonable price just around the corner.

                      Location, cleanliness and staff.

                      I thought the interior design of the hotel could have been better.

                      Hotel location good. Short walk to the U-bahn and only 2 stops to the central station (2 minutes!). The room was massive and very comfortable with a big desk to work at, and a balcony. The breakfast was fantastic - the best hotel breakfast I have had. Full European options and also more traditional UK/North American options too. I think if you book through Booked.net you get a substantial discoun on breakfast which makes it very very reasonable.

                      My only complaint is the wi-fi. Free wi-fi in lobby and bar, but you have to pay in your room. Which is fine - if it worked! The signal in my room was very weak, and I've noticed it's a common complaint. If they want to charge for wi-fi, fine, but it better work!! I complained and was just told to use the lobby - kind of defeats the purpose of having it in the rooms. They need to fix this if they expect people to pay for it.

                      Good location, close to Checkpoint Charlie, shops and restaurants. Nice quiet street.

                      That we couldn't get a deal with breakfast included.

                      The hotel is located near Checkpoint Charlie, which a point of interest. Staff are very helpful, they speak very good English.

                      The hotel is in the middle of two metro station. Breakfast buffer was 18 EUROs which is quite expensive. The shampoo and other body gel in the room were not refilled appropriately .

                      The location of this hotel is fabulous. It allowed easy cycling acess around Berlin

                      We mentioned that the shower mixer in the room wasn't working correctly but they didn't fix it whilst we were there.
