Best bits - comfy bed, good breakfast, 15 mins walk (not 5 mins!) from Alexanderplatz, friendly and helpful staff, good shower, good wifi. Stayed 5 nights but would not have room facing main road if we stayed again. Worse bits - our room (21) faced onto a busy road with traffic all day and night and with no air con either so too hot and stuffy or too noisy - take your choice! Bathroom very compact but clean. TV - all German language channels only. Our first floor room had issues with cigarette smoke from guests smoking outside the front door.
Arrived here for a weekend of sight seeing. The hotel kept our cases whilst we went for a beer as the room was not ready. When we got back we had a triple room, 3 single beds and the room was warm, clean and fresh bedding and towels. The shower to hot and good pressure and the beds comfortable. Heating was good and you had the ability to make the room as hot or cold, cold by opening the window which did let in some sound but wasn't realy noticable. Breakfast was nice and no one battered an eye lid that we had come down in a pj's! Was good selection of meats, cheese and breads. Typical continental breakfast, as you'd expect. Reception very happy to give directions and maps. Would recommend
5 minutes walk from Alexanderplatz Lovely small hotel with nice staff and comfortable single rooms. Had a very pleasant stay and also enjoyed their (limited but OK) breakfast. Public transportation available right in front of the hotel. Would definitely recommend it for a short stay in Berlin.
Good situation in Berlin, just 5 minutes walk to Alexanderplatz. The staff is nice and polite. The hotel is basic, cleaned and nice decorated. The single rooms are small but cosy, mine was on the ground floor and had and access to a small garden. Recomended 100 % Good Deal
(Visited july 2013) It's actually more just 'good' than 'very good', and it's better than average so it's in between. Not very expensive, the location is great, breakfast was disappointing, the coffee was undrinkable, the rooms were alright. The place looked really crisp and fresh, and our rooms (in the back) were really quiet.
This was a clean hotel with a basic breakfast. The staff spoke excellent English. The tram and bus are very close by, which made it easy to get to all the tourist attractions. Wifi was excellent. We could walk to Prenzlauer Berg where we went to dinner most nights.
Location was good. Tram stop is just in front of the gate & famous 200 bus stop is 3 minutes walking. Alexanderplatz is 2 stops by tram. - friendly staff - excellent wi-fi - good breakfast. ALTHOUGHT REQUESTED FOR DOUBLE BED WAS GIVEN TWIN BED WHICH CONSTANTLY MOVED APART. VERY FRUSTRATING. NO LIFT.
Are you into breakfast do not choose this hotel! The food and facilities are really bad. The rooms are small and simple but clean. The walls must be thin since I heard my neighbour speaking on the phone - I literary heard every Word. The location is good.
Stayed here with a group of students from my journalism class. Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast and nice and clean rooms. Good location, and everything you need nearby. A good choice if you travel with friends or a group.
I had stayed at the Alex last year so knew what I was getting for not a lot of money. I was there last weekend and the room was at the back ( No.7) and had a private courtyard where my friend's room No. 8 opened onto. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, you get free Wi-Fi, free breakfast and the shower is great. 3 stops on the M4 tram from Alexanderplatz and a great base to explore Berlin. Nice café at the end of the road for a beer and pastry after a day exploring this fabulous city.
