For the conference that I was at in June, we were booked a hotel because well, where could we sleep otherwise 😉
And I was curious how it was gonna be – the reviews online were pretty good, but you never know where those are coming from in the end, right?
Well, the area of Berlin where that was located – to be honest, I have never felt so insecure about walking to the supermarket in the evening like I felt back then.
Already going there by tram and then walking kinda showed that you gotta be made for such areas – and I wasn´t. Really didn´t feel great, but at least had plenty of food places and supermarkets and everything close by.
The bed was spacey for one person, and really comfortable – I either expected a totally soft or too hard mattress, but it was just perfect for me.
The pillow also was just fine, maybe a tad too thin for my taste but I slept really well on the bed, I mean I didn´t need the thin blanket anyways because we had 30°C+ every day and also during the nights, so…
Small but it had whatever you needed – a lovely big shower that had really nice hot water, too (yes, I am someone who kinda cooks herself by just taking a shower).
The toilet was really low – I mean, I am already small but this was rather for little children, at least it felt like it.
And the smell when you didn´t leave the aircondition on was really unpleasant – so basically whenever I entered my hotel room the first thing I did was starting the aircondition in the bathroom.
What really made me angry though was that you had this sign that only the towels will be replaced that are on the floor – so I placed one on the floor, but noticed that in the end they had replaced all of the towels. What is the sense of that sign if the staff doesn´t even stick to it?
Storing possibilities & other stuff
You had what you needed even though I would´ve perferred a storing where you can close the door – simply because my room tended to smell like sweaty sports clothing because I went running and had to put my cloths still somewhere…and it always tends to look messy, but for sucha short stay it was okay.
The TV was nice, you were able to perfectly chill on the bed and then fall asleep watching TV 😉
No matter if you wanted something sweet, or salty, warm or cold – you had everything taht you needed for a good standard breakfast. I always had egg and bacon, with bread rolls and everything and some veggies.
I really enjoyed that they had even avocado, really. I was so surprised because that rarely happens. Also for drinks, you had the standard set of coffee, teas, and juices and water. It made me happy, I was always (too) full after breakfast because it really tasted good.
It all looked fresh and they never ran out of anything seemingly, so nothing to complain about at all.
Overall it´s been a pleasant stay, if I ever look for anything in that area for whatever reasons, I would really consider booking there – and even when needing to use public transport to get somewhere, it would be still a good choice because everything was clean, the staff was friendly, the Wifi worked, food was good. Nothing to really complain about, even thogh you always find things to improve!
