My stay at the hotel met my expectations and, for me, the most important elements of a hotel visit.
1) The room - The room was clean, comfortable and unfussy. The lack of doors on the clothes storage space might be a problem for some guests, for example, business travellers, but for my purposes was fine. Cleanliness is a quality that I look for in a hotel and the hotel met my demands.
2) Staff - The reception staff were very helpful and should be congratulated on their work.
3) Location - The hotel is centrally located, a short walk from Potsdamer Platz and the Anhalter Bahnholf S- and U-Bahn.
4) Breakfast - The breakfast was generally ok. If I had paid more, I would have expected more, e.g. better quality meats, more fruits, etc, but for the price the breakfast was fine.
5) Newspapers - I am a news freak and enjoyed the fact that newsapers, in German and English, were available in the lobby.
Overall - If I were looking for a 5-star expericence with all the bells and whistles, I would go elsewhere, however, for a short tourist visit to Berlin the hotel provided what I needed and I would recommend it to others.

I stayed here for four nights on a visit to one of my favourite cities. The easiest way to get there is via Anhalter Bahnhof. Go up in the lift from the middle of the platform, emerge the lift and walk to the right, about half past 2 on the clock-face. There will be the old station facade on your left, and a sports field on the right. Cross a small road, and continue on Stresemanstrasse on the right hand side for a bout 200 metres. Or you can take bus M41 from the Hauptbahnof to Anhalrter Bahnhof or Willy-Brandt Haus. The hotel is between the 2 stops.
This is a clean and efficient hotel, with very good front desk staff. 2 free computers and an ice machine in reception. Pub, restaurant and off-licence over the road

Only problem we encountered was the poor Air conditioning, however it was the hottest time of the year in Berlin.
PS Why should I have to provide an E mail address when you already have it by sending this E mail ?????>?>?

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Sjengske24 Nice and clean
Nice and clean rooms. Beds a little too hard, blankets and sheets fairly short. Nice and practical bathroom. Rooms are quiet, except for the slamming of neighboring doors, which can be very disturbing at night.
Breakfast plenty of choices, although some bran and cruesli would be nice. Excellent Coffee. Fruit juices not so tasty.
Maybe the capacity in the breakfast room is too little.
Capacity of elevators comes clearly too short, but the staircase is always near.
Wireless Internet in the rooms would be an asset.

We chose this hotel because of its price. We were pleasantly surprised to find:
- The room was clean and free of any smell of tobacco or anything else
- The location was within walking distance of the Brandenburg Gate, the remnant of the Berlin Wall, the embassy row on Wilhelmstrasse, and the Anhalter subway station.
- The breakfast included soft boiled eggs, yoghurt, cheeses, a variety of cold cereal, oranges and apples, latte, breads, coffee cakes, what else?
We selected a room for 4. It was tight, with two narrow beds for children squeezed into a room built to accommodate a double bed. It sufficed for us and the granddaughter.
Oh, and the elevator was a little temperamental.
I would surely choose it again.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by scos Zentral für Kurztrip
Hotel liegt sehr zentral und hat eine gute Anbindung. Empfang war freundlich, Zimmer und Bad sauber und ausreichend von der Größe. Einzige Kritikpunkte waren das etwas harte Schlafsofa für´s Kind (dafür allerdings gratis Übernachtung und Frühstück bis 17 Jahren) und das Frühstück, das etwas reichhaltiger sein könnte. Im Großen und Ganzen aber empfehlenswert!

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by jeff1140 Great location
Pluses: Hotel is very conveniently located near two major S-bahn/U-bahn stations. Room was clean. Staff responded quickly on my request for additional towels. The continental breakfast buffet had a good bit of variety.
Minuses: Not much of a view. Beds were on the hard side of firm, but not too uncomfortable. The desk staff had to cover the bar as well, so bar service was a bit slow.
Overall good value for the money.

One of the nicest Expresses that I have stayed in. Staff was
extremely helpful considering German is not my first language.
Well located to surface and subway transportation and very central in the City. The best selection and breakfast area of any
of the many Holiday Inns that I have stayed in both in Europe and in North America.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Berlintourist Zentral und dennoch angenehm ruhig
Auf der Suche nach Hotels in Berlin bekommt man eine unwahrscheinlich große Auswahl geboten. Zum Glück hatten wir uns für das Berlin City Centre entschieden. Es ist ruhig gelegen aber durch die nahegelegenen Station "Anhalter Bahnhof" verkehrstechnisch sehr gut gelegen. In zwei Minuten zu Fuß bei der S-Bahn und zwei/drei Stationen später schon mitten in der Stadt. Wirklich optimal. Die Zimmerausstattung und der Komfort waren gut und der Service exzellent. Würde das Hotel jeder Zeit einem Freund weiterempfehlen. Positiv überrascht waren wir vom dem im Preis enthaltenen Frühstück. Das ist aus der Buchungsbestätigung und dem Internetauftritt nämlich nicht auf den ersten Blick erkennbar.
PS: Die auf google Street View ersichtliche Baustelle direkt neben dem Hotel ist übrigens nicht mehr aktuell. Das Gebäude ist fertiggestellt, also kein Störung durch Baulärm!

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by nansh bad organized
Not only my booking got lost, I even received a email that was adressed to another guest.
Arriving in the hotel they had given my room to another guest, telling me 'you already checked in yesterday'.
None of the staff could explain how that happened.
They managed to give me another room, but since no nonsmoking room was available i had a room that was terribly smelling of cigarettes.
In the whole hotel the A/C did not work so the people in the 4. and 5. floor had around 29°C in their rooms.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by puglover Nice hotel
We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel and it was the usual standard you would expect for a Holiday Inn Express. The location was good. The underground subway was behind the hotel and at the end of the road (5 minute walk). The staff were excellent as was the breakfast. The room was small but adequate and clean. Only negatives were that the pillows were flat and poor and when I enquired about more pillows with reception they didn't have any. One of the nights was also very noisy. There were coach loads of teenagers who looked like they were on a school trip. They were up until 4am making lots of noise so it felt like a hostel for one of the nights. However, after complaining to the manager he did apologise and sort this out.

Das kompetente und sehr freundliche Personal, ist zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit, hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend.
Das Preis-Leistungsverhältniss ist gegeben.
Bei unserem nächsten Berlinbesuch werden wir sicher wieder

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 Super Familienurlaub
Wir waren mit unsren beiden Kindern fünf Tage in Berlin.
Das Hotel war einfach klasse und ist einfach super zentral
gelegen. In fünf Minuten zum Potsdamer Platz, 10 Minuten zum
Brandenburger Tor und Regierungsviertel. Was will man mehr?!
Wir wurden freundlich empfangen, der Check-Inn war problemlos
und kompetent. Besonders hervorheben möchte ich das Service-
personal im Frühstücksbereich. Freundlich, nett und immer sehr zuvorkommend. Das Buffet war immer reich gefüllt, es hat an nichts gemangelt. Die angebotenen Speisen waren nett angerichtet, die Kaffemaschinen für mich als leidenschaftlicher Kaffeetrinker der Hit schlechthin. Das Team vom Hotel hat uns einen wirklich schönen und erholsamen Urlaub beschert.
Dafür vielen Dank.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by tom911 Everything needed in a budget hotel
I, along with some friends, stayed at this property during a very busy period when there were school groups and tour groups at breakfast. The staff in the dining room were on the top of their game in keeping food items/beverages available in sufficient quantities for everyone and everything we wanted was readily available.
Our rooms were clean and the front desk personnel allowed us to check in early after arrival from the U.S. As a Platinum member I had a 6th floor room in a very quiet wing and slept well. I appreciate this recognition.
I have stayed at this property a number of times since it opened and keep coming back. On a prior visit I was told this is the largest Holiday Inn Express in Germany. The options of Anhalter Bahnhof or Potsdamerplatz Bahnhof , both a 5-10 minute walk, can take you off in any direction you'd like to go by train. The market across the street is an asset, as well as nearby restaurants (we had Italian one night across the street that was very good).
I appreciated the free lobby wi-fi but did not have the chance to use the wired internet in the room that was offered as a Platinum benefit. I'm surprised wi-fi is not yet available in the rooms and hope that is something being considered, as I am at a different Holiday Inn Express in Germany right now that offers that.benefit.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by Hertha No Shower Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My 2nd review of our stay and the main problem was the shower and the kettle, The shower head had a mind of it`s own and for the kettle to work you had to stand next to it with your finger on the Red button.
A working shower is, in my opinion is one of the most important parts of a happy stay at any hotel.
This is the 2nd time in a few months that the shower has not worked in a HIE, The other time was in Frankfurt last year
