    It would have been very convenient if there was a a small separate dining area opened, where guests could keep some perishable items in a fridge.

    This hotel, does what it says on the tin. The staff was very fr friendly and the owner Vitalie, was very helpful and assisted me in booking return bus tickets to Dresden and back to Berlin. One downside is that there is not a permanent person at reception.

    I enjoyed everything. The only thing that may be a little difficult for people is having to carry their luggage up some flights of stairs. There is an elevator but it's a littke odd how it works.

    My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I was allowed to print a day pass for the Hop On Hop Off bus. I liked that they served breakfast and I felt the neighborhood was safe. The room was cleaned each day. I really enjoyed my stay.

    Berlin, this city WAS historically relevant, but giving it a pass will surely increase your chances of having a better life, from overly complicated and expensive public transport, taxi drivers and street thugs one and same, galleries and art centers demanding a payment just like strip clubs, hostile locals, street cleaning nonexistent, it's surely a heaven on earth for a Syrian refugee, JFK said something about this city once and i humbly disagree.

    the location is quite good, access to U bahn station just meters away, that is if you can understand the needlessly complicated Berlin Public Transport system.

    We Arrived at 1 PM and they got just 1 room to us and I slept in the floor on that night, Also they took more that 100 EURO for that night and overlay they got 400 EURO and they did not give us invoice. I expected if they got our room to other person at least they should give us some advantages not a big penalty. Also, they gave us 2 rooms for other nights that have shared bathroom and shower...

    It was disaster, I can say the only think that was good was their staff...

    Staff unfriendly. Charged us 10 extra euros for "late" check in, after 8pm. They buried this late fee in their conditions, but they don't bother telling you that there are several exact same addresses, street name and number in Berlin. We were at one of the other exact same addresses at 19:30. By the time we figured out by calling them that we were not at the right address and drove to the right one 7km away, it was 20:05. They said there was nothing they could do about the charge and that it was "automatic." The furniture was cheap. No door on the shower. Water everywhere. Breakfast was poor. Undercooked scrambled eggs and cold sausage. Overcooked hard boiled eggs. Would not recommend. Only good thing was the location.

    The hallway in front of the rooms (at the first floor in the building) always stank, probably due to insufficient ventilation. In the bathroom a tile was not fixed giving access to the cavity behind the towel rack/radiator, a sign of rather poor maintenance. Low quality breakfast: the butter was three weeks past the best before date, after we told the staff the same old butter was served without package to hide the fact; we found maggots in the muesly.

    The position is pretty central but quiet enough. Very close to a metro station, with another one five minutes walk away.

    Hotel is starting to show its age, the facilities, although better than the average back-packers, are in urgent need of a refresh. Times have changed and allowing guests to make their own tea and/or coffee is now a necessity. Room safes are also a requirement. The hot water system in the shower is either freezing or scaling hot, be prepared to take up a PHD in hot water setting... 😉

    The staff are really friendly and incredibly helpful, a great bunch of people! Breakfast is typical continental with a big choice of fantastic goodies, but nothing warm... Bedrooms are comfortable and good enough after a hard day of site seeing.

    -My girlfriend, who was traveling alone, had to pay a "late check-in fee" in the amount of 10€ because she checked in after 6pm and the reception was closed. This was not indicated anywhere ! -The owner repeatedly hit on my girlfriend, proposing to give her a "private tour" and, after she refused, saying that she was "much too young for him anyway". What the hell is that place ? -No flexibility is to be expected upon check-out. Five minutes before check-out time, the cleaning lady will loudly knock on your door and try to open the door - even though my girlfriend requested a few more minutes to check-out. -No luggage room as the reception is closed most of the time. -There is a caged BIRD in the breakfast room.
