There Have to Be Better Places Than This

Yes, it's a gay-oriented hotel, in a gay neighborhood, but I still wouldn't recommend it. Our room was tiny, with no fridge. We later learned there were larger rooms with fridges, for the same price. I guess if you don't know to ask, they stick you in the small one. Service was poor - one day, housekeeping took all our towels, and left none. It took 2 trips to the front desk to get a full set. The next day, were were shorted 2 towels again. The room was poorly laid out - the ludicrously-oversized shower stuck out into the room, taking up valuable floor space. The bed blocked the one window from opening, and had to be moved each time we wanted fresh air. (Fortunately, it was on wheels.) There was minimal shelving, and no drawers. No closet - just a bar with several hangers on one wall. The room was modern, but the whole black-on-black thing looks tacky and worn. Staff ranged from friendly to aloof. They often didn't seem to have even basic info. One staffer I asked was unsure how long I could legally park my car on the street. He said he thought it might be 2 hours. Actually, there's no limit. Given that there's no hotel lot, the staff should have basic info like that. The "hot" tub was barely lukewarm - almost cold - every day. Another guest said his room's deadbolt was broken, and the staff told him they don't fix the deadbolts, because it's too expensive. Another couple said the hotel didn't have their reservation, even tho they had a written confirmation. To call the hotel poorly managed would be an understatement. My advice - find someplace else.

Nice Getaway in Berlin

Hotel was really quite nice. The staff was amazing and the location was fairly close to a Ubahn station and a square with nice restaurants and shopping. Hotel is close to a shopping district but also quant little shops. Everything was nice, but room was a little small. I expected European style, but there was not even room for me to put my suitcase comfortably in the room. I would definitely stay again though. Not recommended for Children.

Great location with lovely staff

We both really enjoyed our 4 night stay in this hotel.. top marks except for the lack of privacy in the bathroom and the noisy air-con.. apart from those two small items, its a great hotel in an idea area with very helpful and pleasant staff.. a huge choice of good places to eat with a 5 min walk and only 2 mins from Ka De We etc.. will come again........

Stylish, Centrally Located, Generous size

I got a terrific price on a single room, but decided to upgrade to a suite upon my arrival. The suite was a very large room with great views, king-sized bed, and a bathroom that was worth the upgrade: huge glass-wall shower with rain-shower head, multi-body jets (& more), a jacuzzi tub, double sinks in a very generous room. The staff were always very helpful & friendly. Centrally located in the Schoneberg area, I found it the perfect place to keep as a home-base for travel around the city.

New Year's Eve

We attended the gala dinner on New Year's Eve. The food was fine, the service was good but the entertainment was disappointing. The evening didn't really provide value for money. Which was a pity, as apart from this our stay was very enjoyable.
