Berlin Trip

The staff is ok particularly the concierge Patrick. The chambermaid who cleaned up our room last Nov 15 when we left for Dresden and who kept my wife's jewelry intact when she forgot to safekeep it before leaving the hotel deserves special commendation. However,in termsof value for money,i think we made a bad bargain.No extras at all. No free wifi,no freewater &coffee in the room which are almost available inany other hotel.

Classy hotel, central location

Classy, comfortable, spotless and convenient. Central location that's walkable to Mitte, Kurfurstendamm, and Charlottenburg. Loved the stay and would definitely stay there again.

Hotel restaurant is a bit pricey. Recommend the short walk to Ambrosius for real German food.

Ok, but not good

Nice place but very un personal. What's really bad is all the smokers hanging out in the open lobby/restaurant at the entrance. And the location is a bit off of everything.

Lovely facility

negatives: you pay extra for Internet; and , there is no coffee in the room or the lobby. It was a little too far from being able to walk to the main sites of the city including the walking tours.

Pricey but good food and service

The room was great, spacious and clean. Old fashioned shower in the bath but clean. Bar costs were scary (7.50 in the bar, 4.40 in a city centre restaurant). I was there for a conference so access to the city was a bonus, however, it's in great position for tourists with a tour bus pick up about 100m to the left of the hotel. It's right on the bank of the river, so not far to walk to any of the main drags into the city centre. The staff were attentive and efficient, always arriving just as your empty glass went back on the table. Would I stay there again, yes. Would I eat and drink in the hotel? Only if it were on expenses, preferably someone else's!
