Very enjoyable stay!
Location was the best thing. Right in the centre, next to the New Synagogue, it’s within walking distance (about 10-minute walk) to anything in Berlin Centre, such as Alexanderplatz or Reichstag. It was a nice and calm place. The staff there were really friendly, always helping you in case of needing it. We were originally five, but due to personal reasons, one of the friends couldn’t make it, so when we informed the staff about this situation, they were completely ok with it (obviously they didn’t give the money back, but it was understandable as we informed on the day we got there). Breakfast is ok, worth it for 5€, as it’s a buffet, and you can eat as much food as you want, but it did lack a bit of choice to be honest, it included bread, jam, butter, cereals, yogurt, fruit and some orange juice. Although whenever you wanted you could have free coffee, tea, or water throughout the day, which was very generous. They have a happy hour which everyone really enjoyed! The WiFi works great, and kitchen facilities are good! The room was clean, bed sheets and towels provided, and quite spacious. But be aware cleaning staff do enter throughout the day, which we were not informed about and really didn’t want them to. The bathroom facilities were not bad, but could have been better, as the two showers next to our bedroom didn’t work, so we had to go over to the other side, but they were clean, which is the main thing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Good value
Great location, decent prices, and lots of good perks like free towels and 5-euro breakfast buffet. I liked the high ceilings and courtyard for eating too. Relatively quiet street. No air conditioning, but things cooled down eventually when I opened the windows of my room

Visite en famille
Très contente d'avoir choisi cet hôtel. L'emplacement était parfait tout proche des lieux de tourisme. Les toilettes sont nettoyées quotidiennement et à part certains clients qui laissent trainer leurs affaires l'état de propreté est correct. L'accueil est très sympathique et l'équipe est à l'écoute. Je reviendrais sans hésiter si je dois repasser à Berlin. PS: J'ai pris une chambre familiale avec toilettes communes
