The view from our window was spectacular--St. Paulskirche was located about 400m away, and we could hear the bells chiming very faintly at each quarter hour. It was a shame that we never ventured down the street to take a look inside.
Like most German hotels, breakfast was included in the price of the room, and what a breakfast it was! There was a huge spread of breads, buns, pastries, yogurts, puddings (chocolate!), fruit jelly, fruit conserves, nuts, seeds, cereals, cakes, salads, cold cuts, cheeses, and pâtés, etc. On occasion there would be chocolate cake and pretzels. Stollen was available, as it was so close to Christmastime.
A very welcome extra was a computer available in the reception area with free Internet access. How splendid! There was no need for lugging that laptop around in the hopes of getting a free wireless signal. Speaking of laptops, their website does state that their en-suite rooms do have Internet access available. There was also a communal TV downstairs near the bar. Oh yes, did I not mention that bar?
The location of the hotel was not in the prettiest of areas, but it was safe at night, and that’s what counts for me. It was also very convenient. The closest U-Bahn station also happens to be Hauptbahnhof, the main train station. That’s about 500m away and only a 10-minute walk. From there, there is a direct S-Bahn to the airport, and as you can imagine, we took a couple day trips from here. To get to the hotel from the Hauptbahnhof, take the exit where the giant Coca-Cola sign overhangs. Turn right and continue down the street--the hotel is on the left-hand side.
I highly recommend this hotel, and I highly recommend booking in advance (I booked in September for the Christmas season). We stayed there for 7 nights (quite a long vacation by their standards), but we found lots to do!
