This was my second stay here after a several year absence from Berlin.
it is superbly located, across the river from the Berliner Dom, the restored Cathedral, built by Hollenzollerns. The crypt has the tombs of many of the Royalty that ruled Prussia and Germany. The hotel is close by the Alexanderplatz, the Hackesher Market, in the heart of Mitte, formerly East Berlin. In nice weather it is a great walk past Museum Island, Humboldt University and down Unter Der Linden to the Brandenburg Gate.
about the hotel - it is large but efficient. It hosts groups, but it doesn't affect the front desk, dining and bar areas, etc. A striking feature is the large cylindrical aquarium that stretches to the top of the atrium.
my room was nicely outfitted, with a great bed, down duvets and many pillows. There was decent closet space with built in hangars and shelves. The negative is the lack of any night light in the very blacked out room, and a number of doorways with sharp edges. I hit my head in the dark, with a minor gash to my forehead.
Despite that, my stay was serene and comfortable, with reasonable rates during a period that many hotels had upped their rates significantly and were too expensive.
