      Nice taste of soviet-era stay”

      If you want to feel what it was like to stay in a soviet-era hotel - try this one! The room was clean, without anything special, but the atmosphere certainly brought be back to early 90s soviet Russia, which is where I was born. Location is a little far from most of the hip places, but there are a few nice spots in walking distance, including the one right by the Berlin Wall that you can see from your window. If you're on a budget - I don't see anything wrong with this place, and it would be quite a memorable experience I'm sure.

      Great cheap accommodation in Berlin”

      Rooms are no luxury but they're perfect enough for cheap and short trip to Berlin. Road in front of hotel is full of traffic all day but windows can isolate you from noise so it's okay. Carpets should be cleaner but nothing EW, just old carpets. Beds clean and comfortable, bathroom with bath tub was roomful, toilet papers and so on were added daily. Breakfasts simple and enjoyable. Hotel staff friendly and smiling. I don't see many reasons for huge hate I saw somewhere on internet... This is simple and CHEAP hotel. For glamorous beds, incredible breakfasts etc. you have to pay more in another, luxurious hotel.

      Ideal for its simplicity”

      Well located hotel in a lively area, near U and S-Bahn. Functional room and satisfying breakfast. Heavy trafic on the strip in front of the hotel. The rooms are soundproof but not air-conditioned... it' an issue in summer as you have to let the windows opened at night! Matresses probabley need to be changed for more comfort...

      Great value for money, very well located”

      Really nice hotel in a very cool neighbourhood. Staff was friendly, the rooms tidy, the bed comfortable and the breakfast decent. The bath tub could have done with a shower curtain though... Our room was at the front with a view on the river and the Berlin wall, which was amazing, but also a bit noisy with traffic and people on the street until late, but closing the windows kept most noise out. Can highly recommend this place for people who want to explore the city.

      Friendly, helpful staff, good breakfast in a nice seating area. Great view across the Spree and the Wall. There is a constant hum from the road and some people noise that earplugs fix. A fan in the room would be an improvement so windows can be closed at night.

      Really great value for your money. I stayed in a single room, which was small, but had all you need. A comfortable bed, a desk and chair, a bathroom and one of the best views in the city. Staff was very down to earth and friendly. They let me check-out two hours later, as my train left a bit late. Only little problem: I stayed on the third floor, where the wifi was very poor. All in all: Cheap, friendly, great location.

      Opposite the Berlin Wall, very close to S and U Bahn stations, Friendly staff

      I stayed here in a single room for a couple of nights. Room was clean and good size for 1. Breakfast that was included was tasty and you can sit at the window and admire the berlin wall. Was very quiet at night time. Very easy to get to the Sbahn and U-bahn stations from hotel. Staff speak english and are very friendly. Also a few nightclubs in close proximity if that's what you're interested in (though not so close you can hear them if you aren't)

      Good for one night”

      Pros: - The bed was clean! - Persobally, the location was great, as we were only going for a concert that was 2 min away :) - The breakfast buffet surprised us a lot. It was amazing! Lots of good bread and various things to have on. Although one of the staff members got kinda irritated when I had tea in a coffeecup (which was placed on the table), it was a pleasant experience. Cons: - The carpet floor was heavily stained and I did not want to even walk with socks on.. I would recommend everyone to bring simple flip flops to use on the floor (like after shower for instance) - The sink barely turned on (sensor) so it was a nightmare to brush our teeth.. - The few cups in the cupholder was dirty.. - Dusty and ugly lamps in the room and hallway! Overall it was all right for one night, I could sleep here again if it would be convenient (e.g. For a concert nearby) but would also look for other places. Most important for me was that the bed was clean! And it was.

      Size of room. The bathroom and the beds.

      initially, we turned up at 10 30 having requested an early check in we were down heartened to find we had to return at two to check in, not knowing the area as first time visitors. They did not seem overly interested in our custom and did not give us any direction of how to spend the next few hours so we were left wandering the streets of East berlin (trust me, rather daunting). Things improved when we arrived back at 2 pm and the receptionist had upgraded us to a street facing room. (Views at the back are industrial/dismal). The room was big clean and basic - (two twin beds rather than a double). The food wasn't great and overpriced. Also they lacked communication in when breakfast was available (no guides). Overall our experience felt basic (if we were backpacking it would've been slightly more luxurious than a hostel ((SLIGHTLY)) Was a shame as they were okay guys but couples looking for a nice stay avoid this area and travel just a little further central (maybe alexsander platz or freidrichshain) 2.25 out of 5

      I checked-in in the night of Good Friday in Easter Holidays. FRom Tegel airport, It took about half an hour. The hotel was located just in front of the existing Belrin Wall. The metro station is within waling distance. The room is a little bit shabby but the price is cheaper than other standard hotels in Berlin. This is a good base to explore Berlin city for tourist.
