The internet should be improved as one had to log into wifi again and again several times a day, even if you had not left the hotel. The booking did not come through for 48 hours. The hotel is conveniently located in Berlin, has comfortable rooms and a nice breakfast, with vegan options.
Standards of finish and cleanliness exceptionally high. Nice rooms - well equipped.
Whilst the bar staff were nice, they were unable to mix cocktails! The Negroni cocktail is made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel. It is considered an apéritif.
Would have preferred a better nights sleep
Everything we wanted to visit was either in walking distance or we had good access to transport. I found the hotel very quiet and all the facilities were clean. We found the staff very nice, however sometime felt they didn't always understand us properly, but this may have been as we didn't speak English.
As I didn't like to have my room cleaned every day on two occasions we put the do not disturb sign on the door as we knew we would be returning to the hotel a few times during the day, this lead to a notice on the door on the second occasion, we felt this rude as it made us feel we were breaking some rules by not letting the maids in for a day. I also found the pillows quiet uncomfortable but did not feel like it would be okay to ask for more.
