This is a good hotel in a really good location--there are lots of places to eat nearby, and you couldn't be closer to the U-Bahn station--it is pretty much in the same building, but you'd never know it from any noise. There are plenty of elevators and they're quick--so even though it's a fairly large hotel with 8 floors, you never seem to wait long. Staff were good, room was clean--we enjoyed our week there. Would like it if the breakfast was a bit cheaper, so we didn't take it, as we found good alternatives nearby for less. One issue was the climate control--you can set it for the lowest temperature - 19 degrees - and it then works in a 6-degree range, so it will actually cool to 25 degrees and not cool any more. I believe this is more a Germany thing than a Scandic thing, thought.

This hotel was fantastic! I wasn't met with a single space that wasn't impeccably clean, the staff was incredibly diverse, and served with enthusiasm and patience. Everyone on staff was so very sweet, from check-in staff, to the restaurant, to the cleaning staff, which was a refreshing break from the more apathetic service styles of much of Europe, compared to the US. The design of the hotel and brand continuity was a particular treat for me as a Marketer - the Scandic nose was represented in interesting forms all over the hotel, an I was amused and impressed with how dressed up and classy to how casual and campy it appeared moving through the building. For the price, the quality, location, and service was fantastic. I would certainly return here if hoping the hotel route in Berlin again!
