It was all good
Very good value for Berlin even though very basic, good location very close to Ostbahnhof, very retro style from the ddr times, and a friendly attractive young woman when checking in on the evening of the 18th Nov 19.
The bed wasn’t the best I’ve slept on but no means the worst, the curtain wasn’t big enough to cover the window and it would of been nice to have a tv and your own bathroom but of course that’s reflected in the price so can’t complain really.
Very clean, close to grocery store and metro station, private bathroom, uncomplicated personnal.
Private bathroom outside the room, weak light in the bathroom, thin walls (very bad sound isolation), thin curtains.
The DDR is very close to the Berlin Ostbahnhof, easy to reach. The style of the rooms is very similar to the ones of the East Berlin era.
The room had a bit of old smell. The WiFi on the 6th Floor was extremely slow.
Staff was nice, interesting idea and design. Close to Ostbahnhof.
The area felt a bit dodgy being close to the railwaystation with some seedy characters there, and also a police car with sirens on in the night next to the hotel when I returned to the hotel. It was extremely hot in the room even in November, despite turning off the radiator and having to sleep with a window open. It was an experience for one night, but wouldn’t return.
