Rooms were very nice and location is great. The service for check in was just awful. The person in charge of check ins on weekends looked to be tired of life. I’d recommend some therapy for her. I didn’t catch her name but I hope the staff who reads reviews has some idea who I’m talking about.

We stayed here for a couple nights while exploring Berlin. The hotel is in a great location as it's close to Checkpoint Charlie, a subway station, and a grocery store. The rooms were clean but small and there was no way to control the temperature besides opening the windows and a small fan. The shower was tiny and you can hardly turn around. Overall, if you're not looking to live in your hotel room, this is a pretty good spot to stay
