4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is approximately a 15 minute drive by cab to Tegel airport. Right across the street is a major mall with all sorts of shopping if you need anything before your flight. There is also an ATM in the mall. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Mini fridge is stocked with a few beverages. You can make your own coffee drinks from an espresso machine in the lobby. They sell postcards at the front desk if you forgot to send one until now! The only down side is the walls were quite thin and I could hear a lot of noise from the next door neighbors.

This hotel is very pleasant and close to the airport. Across the street is good shopping and food-court restaurants. Parking is limited, but pay parking is one block away. Be aware that the restaurant does not take American credit cards but you can add your meal to the hotel bill.

IMO, this place is very good for people with Car and people using public transport. We used the car to reach the hotel and then decided to use the UBahn to visit berlin city. The hotel is like 10 steps from the UBahn stop. The hotel itself provides only 8 parking slots , very difficult to get , but there are many other options . You have paid parking lot nearby but there are many public parking places as well (better and easier to get after 8PM , when the near by mall closes) . There are few restaurants nearby and a 10 minute walk will take you to the Tegel lake, which is a good place to spend the evening. There is a big mall with all shops nearby, including some fast food joints. The hotel breakfast is great - i guess continental , it has various forms of eggs, spreads, meat , cereals etc and the best part is that you can order items from the breakfast menu (like pancakes , pancakes with mushroom, egg with cheese etc ... ) The hotel also offers bicycles which you can probably use it to visit the lake nearby. There is a coffee and soft drinks bar at the reception and is open for all.. All in all, its a good place to be . I cant comment on the weekdays but weekend is when we visited and it was really nice.

Stayed in this hotel for one night after lending family with 2 teenagers. Very clean big room for all family. Efficient and fast check in and check out. Very good sleeping quality - best mattresses ever I had in hotel! Excellent breakfast buffet. Fresh baked breads and pastries, a large assortment fruits, several cheeses and cold cuts. Add to that eggs of every variety, bacon and sausages. We arrived late and parked our car on street behind the hotel without any problem. Very nice and quiet neighborhood, so we felt very comfortable and safe. There is big shopping mall next to hotel. Recommended.

Good hotel, clean, aseptic, well managed, good and ample breakfast, close to Tegel airport, 60sec. far from metro station. My single room was more then enough. Frills: water boiler, WiFi, minibar, AC, bath set (minimum). A big +: room are with usb charger and LOTS of electric plugs. A -: only 2 English channels on TV and none in Italian

Over the last several years I stayed in this hotel for different occasions. Tough it is not far from the airport Tegel one does not notice that. The rooms are quite spacious, bathroom is ok. They have rooms with water beds but that's really not my cup of tea. Big plus of the hotel is free coffee and soft drinks in the lobby. The breakfast buffet in the morning is very lavish and one can even order extras like a fried egg or pancakes for no extra price. Not really near the center of Berlin, but only a 15' drive by car or the subway. A subway station is right at the hotel. The surrounding area is mainly offices and businesses, there's also a cinema and shopping mall nearby.

This is a very nice hotel within 15 minutes of Tegel Airport. The staff are very professional and helpful. The room is good. It is also just across the street from the subway, a shopping mall, and a very nice Italian Trattoria.

This place can be VERY noisy (the doors slam hard and you can hear your neighbors). You need to get a room on a high floor on one of the ends if you actually want to sleep and pray your neighbors aren't there to "party".

Very user-friendly, next to the subway, and 10 min to Tegel Airport. I will definitely stay here again in transit from Berlin. Easy parking, and some good restaurants nearby. Across the street from a gigantic shopping mall.

Room was fine. Location was fine. Needed hotel near airport that also had a decent restaurant. This advertised one of the best restaurants in town. Unfortunately it is NOT. They even told me I needed to reserve a table in advance just to get in, because it would be so crowded. I reserved 7:30. When I came into the small restaurant sporting only a few tables, it was less than half full. There were maybe only three or four parties in the whole restaurant. First, the waiter told me that four or five items on the already very small menu were unavailable. How this could be at 7:30pm when the restaurant was only half full is a great mystery to me. It speaks of horrible planning by the owner, or simple false advertising. After placing my order within 3 minutes for the simplest entree on the menu (breaded chicken with salad), I proceeded to wait 45 minutes... NOTHING came. I stood up went over to the waiter and asked him what was the status of my order. He said it was coming right out. I waited another five minutes, nothing came, nothing was coming. I went over and asked to speak to the manager. There was no manager. The waiter ignored me, did not even apologize, and puttered about like a complete jerk. I then went to the front desk of the hotel and asked to speak to the manager, and of course there was no manager on duty. I told the clerk I wanted to speak to the manager, and she said he would get back to me tomorrow. I explained that there should ALWAYS be a manager on duty, and that I would be back home in the USA tomorrow. The level of indifference, arrogance, and disregard for the customer was truly astounding. At that point, I went back to my room, put on my coat to go out, and stopped back at the restaurant one more time asking to speak to the chef. The same arrogant, incompetent waiter told me to wait outside in reception, at which point I told him no thank you, and that I wanted to speak to the chef. The restaurant has an open kitchen and I could see two cooks there, but I didn't know which one was the chef. The waiter continued in his arrogant dismissive manner, and I insisted upon speaking with the chef. Eventually, he told me that he was the chef, which he obviously was NOT. He was simply the incompetent, arrogant, and ill-mannered waiter. At that point, I left, went across the street to McDonalds, and had a very tasty set of chicken wings. Do NOT waste your time or money on this place. It is a joke.
