ARCOTEL Velvet Berlin

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a small, comfortable and very stylish hotel a little away from the main tourists paths. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable but I liked the facilities and the decor of the hotel a lot

This was a very nice hotel for s in Berlin. Friendly staff, close to attractions we wanted to visit. Little strange the bathroom partion curtain, it did not offer any privacy. But mother and daughter coped ok.

Loved this spot. Arrived early and they checked us in right away. Beautiful rooms with all you needed. Restaurants nearby with lots if choices, including for vegans. Easy transport anywhere in city as you are near U,S and tram. Walk to museum island, Berlin Wall memorial, Checkpoint Charlie and Brandenburg gate. One negative is that you have to have a key in for the lights to work so if you share room be careful.

Located next to the remnants of the Tascheles arts commune, the Arcotel Velvet is in the heart of Mitte, and an easy walk to many excellent locations. The rooms are somewhat unusual -- the shower is blocked off from the rest of the living room only with a curtain -- but very comfortable and full of character. I was originally booked on the smoking floor (the fifth), but was able to move. Staff is attentive and helpful.

Perfect location, room was very nice and clean, shower was great, and staff was accommodating!

We enjoyed our room very much, we asked for a queen bed in advance and got it, the view from our room was great. It is very unique and nice. At forst we thought it was weird there was no bathroom door but its also very romantic,

We had very good experiences here on two occasions. The staff was very helpful and tried to be accomodating. The location is very central. There are terrific ethnic restaurantsa very close by and it is possible to walk to all of the major museums. Breakfast was included during our previous stay; this time it was not. it would have been nice to sit at breakfast and meet other guests.

My husband and I just returned from a great trip to Berlin, where we spent seven nights at the Arcotel Velvet. We were very pleased with our hotel choice, both for its convenient access to public transportation and its clean, well-designed rooms. There are scores of bars and restaurants in the immediate area, serving just about every ethnic cuisine you can think of: Brazilian, Cuban, Thai, Italian, Vietnamese, and yes, even German food. We skipped the pricey hotel breakfast and had coffee and pastries every morning at the little coffee shop right next to the hotel -- very friendly service, with some English spoken by most of the employees. Our room was quiet, thanks to the thermal-pane windows and drapes, despite being right above the busy street below (we were on the fifth floor). I notice some reviewers are bothered by the bathroom design, but we thought it was great. Yes, the shower and sink open directly into the room, but there's a sheer wrap-around curtain (which helps to diffuse glare from the bathroom lights) and the toilet area is completely private (i.e., a separate little room with a door). There were plenty of clothes hangars and a large Ikea-type armoire with conveniently-sized shelves and a room safe. Bed linens were high quality, with separate "his and hers" duvets for each side of the bed -- very clever and comfy. If we return to Berlin (which we hope to do, given how much there is to see), we'll definitely stay here again.
