The hotel is definitely very convenient as far as location, close to the metro (Oranienburger Tor station) and in an area full of bars and restaurants of various kinds within easy walking distance.
The staff is friendly, common areas are overall clean and comfortable. Breakfast is pretty standard (although bearing in mind that you are in central-northern Europe).
The sore point was for the rooms, at least in our experience. On arrival we have been allocated a room on the first floor: it was rather small and uncomfortable and above all very noisy as overlooking Oranienburger straβe (bustling and full of bars). They said that there had been an error in the assignments (we booked via internet) and that the next day we could change room.
The next morning they showed us two rooms available for a possible change, also on the first floor and small. We decided to choose a room overlooking the quiet courtyard, however forgoing even further comfort. It was an even smaller room with less than essential furniture (very narrow double bed, a desk with 2 small drawers, a long shelf above the bed headboard and shelves instead of bedside tables, no wardrobe but only a coat rack with some clothes hangers) and zero space to store your luggage. Bathroom small but more functional than the sleeping area. We had a nasty surprise respect to images shown on the internet, probably the colorful & contemporary rooms that you see in pics are at the other floors.
Recovers rating with the free Wi-Fi access in rooms and common areas.
