        Good location, near Berlin Philharmonie (5 min walk) and Potsdamer Platz. Nice rooms.

        The room is small (but that's ok for me), but the bathroom is bigger than the room (!). I am not sure whether i like it or not, but it looks odd :-) Poor sound isolation between room and corridor, you hear everything that people say and do in the corridor. And, of course, all that door clapping 6 o'clock in the morning - ok if you came on business, but hardly appreciable if you came there to spend there your precious holiday. The elevator stops between the floors. I was in the 2nd floor, so i could just go by elevator to floor "2.5", and go down. But what if i stayed in floor , the top floor? You have to drag your luggage half a floor up. And you do not figure this trick with the elevator when you just have arrived... Cushion is poor.

        Its location, comfort and privacy.

        I felt the manners of some of the staff were brusque at times. The exceptions to this were the lady serving breakfast and one of the waiters in the evening both cheerful and respectful. I would have liked if there had been internet access via an available hotel computer. The room was not cleaned one morning. When I came back in the evening the notice on the door had been turned to do not disturb!

        I enjoyed the fact that it was close to most of the sights, and wherever I could not walk to, I had easy acces to bus stops. Additionally, it was relatively safe to walk alone from the center to the hotel more or less until midnight. The breakfast was more than OK.

        The decor was tasteful, the breakfast was wonderful & everything was very efficient.

        The Hotel was literally made to look old fashioned, nothing looked modern, it was quite fun. Breakfast buffet was generous.

        In breakfast, coffee and juice wasn't the kind I like, but otherwice breakfast was good.

        Our Kaiserzimmer was a very nice surprise, and great value for money.

        We would have liked some vegetables to go with the breakfast. An English-language newspaper would also have been nice.

        The location of the hotel is excellent.

        In July the hotel is very hot and there is not any cooling system in rooms. Wireless Internet connection in the hotel is sometimes really slow. Rooms in the hotel are not clean enough.

        Location and ambience and breakfast is excellent

        Some of the staff were a little brusque, although others were very pleasant.

        The hotel is placed at a central part of the city. It is near to Potsdamer Platz and some attractive parts of the city are within the walking distance.

        The hotel does not have air condition and during the summer time it is very hot in the rooms.

        I came to Berlin on business and chose this hotel for its character, location and price. I'd previously stayed in Berlin's ultra modern but souless hotels and wished to find something with a bit more substance. I was not disappointed. Altberlin is a one off. The efficient and helpful staff immediately made me feel welcome, the food was excellent, the room was warm and very quiet, beds comfortable. I would most definitely stay here again.

        An English tv channel would have been appreciated as all tv was in German.

        The location was fairly good. The breakfast was good.

        The hotel is old and needs refurbishing and re-modelling to the extent possible as it is an old building.the rooms have poor air circulation, no air conditioning not even a fan.The bathroom was very badly designed and the wc was just below the wash basin and I am a six footer, so I had to squeeze in my left leg in first and then sit, this was uncomfortable and annoying to say the least.

        Great location and value for money. The room was clean, of adequate size and very quiet but in a separate part of the hotel. Breakfast was substantial but basically the same each day. staff very helpful and would use the hotel again.
