“Not a 5 star Hotel”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The hotel has a perfect positioning for the tourist. Museum Island, Alexander Platz, Unter den Linden are all 5 minutes walk from hotel. The astonishing aquarium in the hall is really nice and gives a special touch to the place. Unfortunately the above are the only positive things of this hotel. The rooms have a good size but the bathrooms are small and simple. The style of the furniture (design type) tries to mask what is in reality a cheap way to furnish a room. The heating did not work properly and in 3 days it has not been repaired. There were no slippers nor bathrobes in the room, and nobody showed for the night remake of the beds/room all things that should be included in a 5 star offer. Our room was facing the opposite building, not a nice place to look at. The staff did not do anything to make us feel "at home" always "cold" and never really well mannered. At the end not a stay I would raccommend.

Nice trendy clean room and bathroom. Fascinating reception with its 25 m aquarium. Ask for the room on the upper floors, we were on 5th and then you can see the whole aquarium each time you're in the lift. You can only access the floor on which your room is as the lift works with your room card only.

Good location just next to the museum island and a 10 minute walk from the U-bahn station at Alexanderplatz. Trams and buses (including TXL bus), taxis are just outside the hotel as well. The bus TXL takes you directly to / from the Berlin Tegel airport in just 30 minutes. The tourist hop-on hop off bus also stops next to the hotel.

We haven't tried breakfast in the hotel as 25 EUR is a lot. But we took our breakfast every morning in the Balzac coffee shop just next door. Yet we tried the Heat hotel restaurant which was quite nice, food was good though a bit pricey. We had good lunch for a good price (cca 10 EUR per person) in the next door DDR museum restaurant.

Good location in one of the more civilised parts of town. Avoid public transport in Berlin unless you like to meet drunks in tracksuits (in the early afternoon!) taxis are cheap here.
The lobby area is nice - the enormous fish tank is quite an eye catcher.
I stayed here two times - the second time I had an atrium room; avoid those if you can as they no outside windows which means no natural light and no fresh air, only air con. Both rooms were quite small, but then again the rate was very low for a Radission in a capital city.
Breakfast is nothing special.

To stroll down the Unter den Linden to the Tiergarten is to walk through history - it's overwhelming. The hotel is perfectly located for all things Berlin and it's location is complimented by its modern, comfortable and stylish infrastructure , facilities and service. Berlin starts here.
