Great location, brilliant location

The hotel is centrally located for all the activities we had planned. It was right by, as the name implies, Checkpoint Charlie and all manner of the 'to see' sites of Berlin ie: a section of 'The Wall', Brandenburg Gate, Under Linden Strasse, Third Reich etc etc. It is also just up the road from one of the stops (Checkpoint Charlie) for the multitude of 'hop on, hop off' bus tours. To start though, we were met by Laura at the front counter and she would be how you would best describe as 'the ideal front person for your hotel'. Very bright and friendly, spoke good English and personally guided us to our 'palace of a room'!! Can't say enough about her and this set it up well for a great three days in Berlin. As I said, the room (or apartment) was outstanding. heaps of space, all the facilities (even if you wanted to cook something yourself) and very quiet. Absolutely no complaints here! Surrounding the hotel is a good selection of cafes and restaurants so you can pick and choose depending on your budget. Parking available in their underground facility for 13 Euro per night which seemed standard and certainly a good 'piece of mind' in a big city. The only down side (for us) was the fitness centre (a small stretch of the term) which, considering the size of the hotel, only consisted of treadmill and a 'stepper' in a room which was already hot as it had the sauna next to it and no air con. To use the treadmill you also had to go to reception to pick up the safety cord so you could actually use it. Overall, a very pleasant stay in a quality hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are planning to visit the Reichstag (Parliament Building) you have to register with them at least a week ahead with your name, address and DOB so they can security check you. Can't do it on the day! Check via the Internet and download the registration form or do it first thing on arrival if you're spending a bit of time in Berlin.

Perfect location, lovely people

Perfect location right at Checkpoint Charlie. Very obliging and friendly staff. Our first trip to Berlin and would stay there again in a minute. For a relatively small hotel, they had an amazing breakfast buffet with very good coffee. Great way to start the day.

For the jet-lagged, as we were they recommended a bistro, L'Entrecote, only a block away, for dinner the first night. It was a spot-on suggestion

Great Stay

Great Location, very central. Accommodations were great; but not plush and some things were a little bare bones by 4 star standards. Perfect suite for traveling family. Will be back to see all that we missed.

Great Place

This was a great hotel. It has a good location and is nearby many of the sites of Berlin. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are a good size for a European hotel.

There is a great Italian restaurant close by and if you ask at the front desk about it they will give you a card so you will receive 10% off the bill.

Friendly staff, clean room

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and very helpful. Room was large and there was adequate hanging space for clothing. Breakfast buffet was good - formal restuarant for evening but they did have room service and light meal service in the bar area in the evening. Room was good size and I liked that the bathroom was seperate from the vanity/shower area. Hotel was conveniently located to public transportation.

Obviously, with the name the hotel is close to some historic areas of Berlin and close to public transportaion that will allow you access to the entire city.
