“Good enough hotel in Berlin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

This was my first trip to Berlin and I didn't have a good feel for location of things within the city. The hotel is situated within the East just over the line where the Wall used to be (look for the running line on the streets as you walk.) There is still a pretty marked difference in architecture between the East part where everything was sort of stuck in a cement-induced time warp and the West part where culture and enterprise flourished.
Though the hotel is not right in the heart of things, a 10-15 minute walk will put you in the middle of museums, restaurants, tourist attractions, and a bustling shopping district. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet in the mornings is quite extensive with lots of choices (eggs, sausages, mushrooms, cheeses, cereals, yogurts, fruits, breads, and more). The rooms were average in size (based on most U.S. standards) and each day there was something that didn't quite get done with the housekeeping (we ran out of toilet paper one day), but overall it wasn't really a dealbreaker. There was a lot of construction around the hotel when I visited in March, but the hotel itself is new and I suspect the neighborhood will be much more developed in coming years. Be sure to visit Checkpoint Charlie when you go and plan to spend at least 2-3 hours in the museum. It's about a 7 minute walk from the hotel and hosts the entire history of the split between East and West and the Wall.

Room Tip: High floor was nice to have a view

Stayed for 2 nites on a weekend get away while working in other parts of germany.

Hotel is in the area of the EAST berlin district. Its on the bottom edge of the area, however, everything on the east side, is easily accessible by walking. Didn't need the car the whole weekend.

Beds were comfty, i got a great nite sleep both nites,however breakfast was included, i was slightly dissapointed in the food as i thought options were limited.

The hotel staff were very knowledgeable and spoke english well. They helped and gave many suggestions on things to do in my short weekend, and it was appreciative.
Other than that, i would stay here again as long as the price was reasonable.

Again a superior hotel by Marriott - very good sized rooms and a large bathroom. There is work going in fron of the hotel and cant reach the same if you are driving. Had to make many a turns to finally reach the parking lot in the basement. The parking lot was not properly marked and had great difficulty in reaching the same. Good knowledge of reception staff as far as sightseeing is concerned. friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. However had to evacuate the hotel because of a false fire alarm in the middle of the night with freezing temperatures. Very loud siren and clear instructions on what to do , but nobody not even the night duty staff bothered to say sorry for the trouble through which guests had to go. A soory letter should have been forth coming.

Very good value. Friendly staff. Find the time to visit Checkpoint Charlie, about 10 minutes away. A memorable experience. We enjoyed a couple of meals at the local bar/restaurant by the U-bahn stop. Good food at a fair price and friendly service.
