“Quirky, fun hotel. Very East Berlin.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I booked a junior suite for my husband and I for our trip to Berlin last December. Our trip was for my husbands birthday and to visit some of the fantastic Christmas markets.
The room was nice and spacious. It was good to have some space without feeling like we where falling over each other. The double bed was a little smaller than what we are used to, but then again European beds are sized differently to the uk(think ikea double bed size) no issues with the comfort of the bed. The room had plenty of storage and wardrobe space.

The small kitchen area was usefull for making coffee but the lack of pots, plates, cutlery and general cooking utensils made having the kitchen a bit pointless.
The bathroom was nice and clean with a good sized bath and a decent shower.

Our only dissapointment was the bar was closed during our stay so we never got our 2 free cocktails that where promised at the time of booking.

We didn't get the breakfast in a bag so can't comment on that. We just bought some cold meats, bread etc from lidl and made our own. We would get coffee from the little coffee shop next door - great coffee.

One of the reasons I choose this hotel was the location. There are loads of bars, cafes and restaurants right outside. It is also a short walk to the Ramones Museum - well worth a visit for music fans (you can walk round the museum with a beer!)

When we return to Berlin we would have no issues with booking this hotel again.

Very nice hotel in central Berlin, close to underground station, plenty of cafes and restaurants around to choose from. Staff were very friendly and responded to every request. A perfect choice for weekend getaway!
Panoramic windows are great, my little one loved it!
Nightlife is very busy around the hotel, great for party-goers.
Kunsthaus Tacheles is right next door, also plenty of other attractions within walking distance.

On the downside if you are visiting by car street parking is scarce and expensive. However hotel does offer onsite parking for 18 Euro over night.
Also no swimming pool/fitness center, something I expected from the 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: make sure to pay for the next available room cathegory, you will get higher floor and a panoramic wi...

We stayed in the Arcotel Velvet for 3 nights during our recent short trip to Berlin. We had previously stayed in this hotel 6 years ago and are pleased to say that the excellent standard of accommodation we enjoyed then still applies. We had a room on the fourth floor. The room and bathroom were both spacious, modern and clean. Our room was at the front but we did not experience any undue noise. Reception staff were very helpful. The location of the hotel is good being only a few minutes walk from the railway station and there are many restaurants and bars in the vicinity. We did not take breakfast in the hotel. No hestitation in recommending this establishment.

Modern and comfortable hotel in central Berlin. Make sure you ask for a room at the rear of the building, though, since the street side could be a bit noisy with all the bars around. The shower design is also unusual- there is no door between the room and the shower / sink area- just a very thin curtain. More appropriate for couples and single travellers than friends travelling together.
