The location of this hotel was great for visiting all the tourist locations in Berlin, which were easily reached on foot. Also right next door to a major S Bahn and U Bahn train station, plus a regular tram stop should you wish. TXL express bus runs about every 10 mins from Tegel Airport and cost 2.80 euros. you can buy a ticket on the bus from the driver, cash only or the ticket machine is near the TXL bus stop. There are several ticket options eg 3 or 4 day public transport use and discounts on sight seeing but we didn't need that. Get off TXL at Unter Den Linden Friedrichstrasse and its an easy, close walk to hotel. An abundance of restaurants close by and spoiled for choice! Rossman supermarket across from hotel is pretty good for convenience. Starbucks and Lush are next door. Our stay was excellent, with friendly, helpful staff throughout the stay. Fresh milk happily provided at bar to enjoy tea/coffee in our room. We didn't use the gym facilities. it was pleasant to enjoy a drink and complimentary nibbles in the bar, the staff were attentive and friendly. The bathroom and toiletries were first class 5 star quality, you won't need to bring anything with you and the hairdryer is better than the one used by a professional hairdresser. The shower is modern, pristine, gorgeous with hot water and large shaped bath. Breakfast was out of this world. The best breakfast hotel choices that we have seen. Champagne, fresh honeycomb, jams, yoghurts, hot and cold breakfast choices, smoothies, continental, english, fresh bakery, meats, fish etc. Located in a beautiful light atrium, decorated flower bowls on every table and good napkins. The attention to detail is very noticeable and nothing too much trouble. We hope to return to Berlin and stay here again, we have already recommended to family and friends.
