Excellent value for moneyfrom ASG
A gem of a bargain!from GavBelfast
The hotel is situated in east Berlin off a main street but less than 5 minutes walk from the nearest U-Bahn station.
We arrived to be shown to a room in the main block which was fine but obviously a smoking room. When we said we had booked a non-smoking room, we were moved with no fuss at all to a non-smoking room in the annex. This room was very spacious indeed and scrupulously clean throughout. While there was no air-conditioning, it was quite airy.
Breakfast is a simple buffet and perfectly adequate, though with a lack of hot items.
The area the hotel is in appears to be pretty up-and-coming and even a little trendy, with a few quaint shops and bars and restaurants within walking distance (including an excellent Chinese one), and these were better value than those elsewhere in the city.
There is obviously a lot to in Berlin - in the hot weather we enjoyed, seeing the city by boat was a joy - and if returning, we would look to stay here again. An excellent spot.
Great Spotfrom Bladegirl
Good Budget Hotelfrom Traveller853
The hotel itself is very nice with friendly staff, a clean room and an excellent buffet breakfast. Most important for me was the fact that the walls were not paper thin like in many four star hotels I have stayed in, ensuring a good nights sleep. One thing to mention is that the hotel is situated in a working class area away from the usual tourist haunts which means that many of the locals cannot speak English fluently, if at all. It helps if you have at least a smattering of German.
I agree with the previous reviewer that a Welcome Card is a good buy. A 48 hour pass now costs 16 euros but it is still good value. Make sure you validate your ticket in the machine where you see "Entwerfen". There are big fines for not doing so and they check up - I was asked to show my ticket by ununiformed staff on the way to Alexanderplatz.
In conclusion, this hotel is a great base for exploring Berlin, especially as it is within easy travelling distance from the attractions in the Mitte area. I can throughly recommend it to fellow travellers.
Great hotel, great cityfrom Janeyb24
The hotel is situated 100m from Samariter Strasse u bahn station which is literally 5 minutes from Alexanderplatz, so location is great. Although the area is a bit daunting at first, once you get used to the fact that there is a lot of graffitti everywhere in Berlin, it does not seem so bad.
There is a small shopping mall on Frankfurter Allee which contains several restaurants open until very late. We would highly recommend the Sala Thai, the food was excellent and the surroundings superb.
If you are going to be sightseeing, get a 48 hour (or longer) pass for the public transport, they are 14 euros but allow you unlimited use of all public transport, and are very good value.
It was our first time in Berlin and we were pleasantly surprised, in fact we loved it. There is a lot to see, the best way of doing this is on foot, but be prepared to do plenty of walking!
good choicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Rooms are clean and spacious, you don't even hear the neighbours!
Breakfast was great, lots of choice and a buffet style to boot.
Right next to the u-bahn at samariter strasse. Try Sandos for an evening meal great food, nice and close.
Would definatly recommend it to friends.

Top Local Tips for Berlin
The model for everywhere else We couldn't believe how easy to use the public transport system was. We were never more than five minutes easy walking from a metro station and it all works together- buses and trams and u-bahn and s-bahn routes all link together to make Berlin the easiest city to get round we've ever been to. Add in a day travel card for under £4 and bob is your proverbial uncle.
train ticket buy a day pass on the tube station and you can use both underground and surface trains aswell as buses and trams all from one ticket but make sure you buy a ticket of some sort because the train security guards travel around in plain clothes so be warned
Public Transport U-Bahms and S-Balms may sound difficult but everything runs via numbers so different trains may run along the same track the numbers on the map tell you where they come and go to. Get off one train and get on another. There is a tourist information at the airport who will guide you. You must purchase your tickets before going on the trains and get them punched on the platform by the machine. Tickets can be 2 hours or more.
