This is a modern, stylish and spacious hotel with excellent facilties and a friendly staff BUT it is deep inside the former East Berlin, surrounded by communist era high rise flats. You have to use public transport to get to see anything of note. Fortunately there is a tram stop and an S Bahn station close by. We found, however, that travelling on the tram was often a crowded and unpleasant experience. Much alcohol was consumed on the trams at all times of day and we frequently encountered gangs of drunken youths both here and in the S & U Bahn systems.
We may have been unlucky with our room but we did experience a succession of problems - in-room safe not working, T.V. remote worked sporadically, card slot to switch on the power kept falling off the wall, room fridge not working. All were reported by us, in some cases several times, but none were satisfactorily resolved before we checked out.
As for Berlin itself - it will confound all your presumptions about Germany and Germans - it is dirty, the people can be quite rude and the service in restaurants etc is not particularly efficient BUT despite all this it is still worth visiting for its history, culture and incredible energy.
