Every morning, well-rested eyes open, ready to greet the world. The rooms and suites are decorated in a beautifully unusual, yet highly personal manner. It comes as no surprise that the question regarding departure is always handled with the utmost tact.

The hotel is as far away from luxury and boutique as you get. It’s an amateur attempt at a hotel. It’s a 3 star airport hotel masked in an old business with some nice design touches. I booked a night stay on my birthday whilst in Berlin via American Express FRH program. Upon arrival there’s nobody to help with your luggage and taxi’s cannot stop easily in front of the building. As I was travelling onwards from Berlin I had 2 large suitcases and I had to leave one in the street whilst raining and return back for it as there’s no porters or any staff in sight. The checkin experience was very poor. They upgraded my room as part of FHR to a room that was supposedly a junior suite which looks nothing like any of the photos they market. It was a badly designed layout with tiny low prison windows which were open so it was freezing. The rooms have a cheap feel for the price. For €500 it’s way over priced. They changed my room to a better room category but the finish and attention to detail is terrible for a new modern hotel (no USB or USB-C ports) weird small doors. The baths are tiny can hardly fit a normal slim person in them so hardly great for a romantic couple or get away. The lobby and design is stylish but badly let down by the service and overall running of the hotel. All the tables had old plates that sat there for hours l, dirty carpets and service took ages. Breakfast was ok but again far away from what you’d expect for the rate they are charging. If it was 50% cheaper it would be an ok-ish place to stay as it’s a quiet area close to the zoo. Don’t expect any luxury, service or anything assembling value for the rate you pay.
We had a fabulous time at this hotel. We had a great room and the hotel decor is very nice - the lighting in the reception is fabulous. The bar was cosy and not too busy with helpful and lovely staff. It's not in the centre of Berlin but by the Zoo and park but was easy to get into the centre. We would definitely stay here again
I met a business partner in the bar. I had tapas and a whiskey sour. Drinks and food were great. The service was informal and charming. The atmosphere really cosy, very comfortable couch. Discreet, absolutely fitting music. Next time I'm in Berlin, I'll book a room here... I'm looking forward to it...
