Stay in Berlin was comfortable, however given the countries visited prior to reaching Berlin, staff and general people friendliness can be improved

Amazing stay, hotel staff really nice!

I have stayed in many hotels in Berlin throughout the years and this property was the most difficult to be comfortable. First, the beds slide easily across the floor, including during any movement during sleep. The windows do NOT open, even the top-in (Kippstellung). This would necessitate having air conditioning, even in the winter since the rooms get stuffy with no other ventilation. The AC is typical European fashion (may as well not even be installed). The bathroom has a nice large shower and sink area but the towels are from the Euro store. Super thin and small. I had several uncomfortable nights due to the warmth of the room and of course the towels don't absorb enough water from one person's body. Overall, I wouldn't stay here. The staff were very friendly and efficient, but obviously can't do anything about my main complaints.

I have stayed here twice. The hotel is conveniently located in between the shopping district and the Schonberg neighborhood.

Pros:The hotel is located in Schoenberg. Near several restaurants, bars and clubs. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Cons: When booking with Orbitz, we selected a double bed but were given two twins in the 1st night. The staff was really helpful and changed our room in the 2nd night. They said it is the way Orbitz handles reservations. Maybe there's a better way to do that? Also, 18 Euro for breakfast seems overpriced.
