The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
We chose this hotel because it's quite close to the Tempodrom, where we were going to attend a concert. Leipziger Strasse is a busy main street but we had a great corner room at the other end of the hotel and so had two peaceful nights' sleep. The room was quite big and spacious, with plenty of windows, air conditioning (necessary with the temperature in the high 20s), a decent bathroom and a comfortable bed. The staff were friendly and helpful, with good English to overcome my broken German. There's a handy taxi service and the ride to (or from) Tegel Airport (for instance) is about €25. There are plenty of cafes in the area as well as a couple of useful supermarkets and it's only a 10 minute walk to Potzdamer Platz, and 15-20 minutes' walk to the Berlinische Museum and the Jewish Museum, both of which are worth seeing. We didn't have breakfast here so can't speak to the quality of that but everything else was good.
We stayed in this hotel as part of a group trip to Berlin in April 2018.
It’s a three-storey hotel, small but nice and clean. The rooms are all located on the first and second floors.
The room size is not too spacious but compact. In the bathroom, there’s no bathtub, only shower and a toilet.
The check-in process was not too smooth due to the discrepancy in their system, but the receptionist was very helpful and willingly prepared our rooms quickly. Even after that, he offered us a one-day complimentary breakfast and a free bottle water.
The location is great. The Mall of Berlin is a walking distance away. There are some supermarkets nearby. The Stadtmitte U-Bahn station is also a few hundred metres from this hotel.
Clean hotel in a good location. Walking distance from many attractions and close to public transport. We had a room towards the back which was nice as there was not much noise. The staff did not know much English though which was a bit tricky from time to time.
I was there in 2014 and enjoyed the time. Unfortunately i stayed only for 2 nights but everything was nice. The stuff was a bit cold. It was one thing which annoyed me. Regarding rooms everything was perfect.
