"Great Basic Little Hotel"
Was in the Nikolai area in East Berlin right next to a church with cobblestones. Great service with reception closing at 9 PM. No frills but fast wi-fi, clean, large room (by european standards) and close to a restaurants and about 1/2 mile from U-bahn.

"Nice hotel in great area in Berlin"
When I booked hotel I didn't realize it was in the oldest areas of Berlin - wanted to be close to Alexander Platz and Mitte areas. It was in a great area surrounded by quaint streets and shops/restaurants. We were able to walk to Museum Island and all around Berlin. Accommodations were great and would highly recommend - Thank you

"Excellent Hotel"
Great location in the oldest central part of Berlin. Close to the TV Tower, river and museums. Hotel very clean and modern interior. Hungarian female receptionist very helpful. Room was the largest and very good. Stayed room only and plenty of places to eat nearby. Walked for miles from the hotel because Berlin is so flat. Nothing bad to say which is a first for me!

"Great location, high quality & good value."
I stayed for 3 nights and was very impressed. The hotel is modern, room was clean and spacious and the bathroom was smart with a lovely big walk in shower. The free wifi worked very well. It doesn't have the facilities of the more expensive hotels in terms of providing meals but there are plenty of places to eat nearby. It's set in a lovely area with cobbled streets and colourful buildings. It's a short walk to Alexanderplatz station and a 5 minute walk to Museum Island and there are bus stops nearby for visiting Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie although both area a walkable distance. Staff were friendly and helpful too.

"Wonderful Stay at Hotel Nikolai Residence"
We loved the hotel - it was in a fantastic location, within walking distance of many of Berlin's main tourist attractions. The room was large, clean and, most importantly, nice and quiet at night. The service at reception was also great – the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. My only complaint would be that the wifi was a bit iffy in the room but that wasn't really a main concern! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Berlin.

Hotellet lå tæt på alting, samtidig et stille område om natten. Meget venlig reception. Fungerede fint med at spise morgenmad på nærliggende restaurant. Her vil vi meget gerne vende tilbage til.

"Bra men ingen luftkonditionering"
Vi tyckte att servicen var perfekt - vänligt bemötande och hotellets läge var också utmärkt. Centralt beläget och med rabatt på en intilliggande restaurang som var mycket bra! En detalj var lite sämre just dessa dagar då det var 34-36 grader varmt: det fanns inte luftkonditionering på rummet, endast en ditställd fläkt som inte förslog.

Externally small, but very comfortable hotel, in a nice and rather quiet area. Our room was big and tidy, seemingly one of the biggest available, and had a modern bathroom, matching the pictures. Service was very friendly, better than in most of the places we visited in Berlin, both in attitude and language skills. Room had coffee, water heater and a minibar, which were great. I could definitely return here again. The only downside was that the hotel stuff didn't seem to know what Berlin City Tax really means, and wasn't prepared to reduce that from the bill, due to room being reserved via "travel agent" (=HC). Hotels do not own that money anyways. Didn't want to spend too much time on that as the amount was insignifant.

"Klein aber oho"
Wir waren nur eine Nacht in diesem Hotel. Ich habe schon des öfteren in Berlin übernachtet, aber dies war das erste Hotel, wo man persönlich zum Zimmer gebracht und alles erklärt wurde. Klein aber dafür sehr freundlich und persönlich. Auch die Lage ist sehr gut, Parkhaus gleich um die Ecke, Parkplätze ebenfalls keine 100m weg, sehr ruhig gelegen. Leider kein Frühstück im Hotel möglich, aber 50m weiter gibt es 3 Gaststätten, wo man gut Abendessen und Frühstücken kann. Gegen Vorlage des Zimmerschlüssels erhält man dort 10% Rabatt. Ich kann das Hotel nur empfehlen.

"Dejligt hotel til familieferie."
Vi var afsted 2 voksne og 3 børn (14,11 og 3år). Vi havde god plads, da der var sengepladser til 6 personer. Vi havde behov for at benytte køleskabet ( der var en minibar) til egne madvarer. Det fik vi lov til. Alt var meget rent og pænt. Venligt og hjælpsomt personale. Området hvor hotellet ligger er hyggeligt. Der er mange restauranter og små butikker. Selve hotellet ligger i en lille stille gade. Så fin nattero. Der er ikke langt til mange af de gode museer og andre seværdigheder. Vi var meget tilfredse.

Petit hôtel familial parfaitement situé dans le plus ancien quartier de la ville (totalement restauré). La chambre, fort agréable, spacieuse, au calme, fonctionnelle avec une SDB dotée d'une douche à l'italienne. Nous avons été très bien accueillies par le patron (qui parle bien anglais) et très bien soignées durant tout notre séjour (10 jours). Nous nous sommes senties chez nous très vite et c'est bien sympathique quand on est dans une si grande ville comme Berlin.

Cet hôtel est à la fois remarquablement calme, proche de lieux importants comme l'île aux Musée, Alexanderplatz, les métro et des restaurants, dans un petit quartier historique assez bien préservé de Berlin et au cour du Berlin actuel et moderne. Propre, discret et à disposition des personnes de passage, bien adapté pour un petit groupe d'amis ou une petite famille ; épatant.

"Schönes Hotel, wenig persönlicher Service"
In der Buchungsauskunft hieß es, ab 24.00 Uhr sei ein Late-Check-In notwendig, tatsächlich hing schon um kurz vor halb zehn ein Zettel am Hotel, man müsse am 21.00 Uhr automatisiert einchecken. Eine Sprechanlage lotste mich durch die technischen Details. Als zweites wurde mir mitgeteilt, dass dies ein Hotel ohne Frühstück sei. Frühstück könne man allerdings um die Ecke bekommen. Das fand ich okay, stand aber auch nirgends in der Hotelbeschreibung. Da ich es für relativ ungewöhnlich halte, wenn ein Hotel kein eigenes Frühstück bietet, halte ich es für angemessen, so etwas in großen Lettern auf der Homepage zu vermerken. Für mich ist das ein Kriterium, nächstes Mal woanders zu buchen. Die Zimmer waren superchic und sauber, das Bad war ein Genuss.

"Fantastic Rooms, great location!"
04/26/16 Vinestock Leicester, United Kingdom
Just back from a girly weekend away with 9 over 40 something ladies. We had three rooms at the hotel all sleeping 3. Two of the rooms (30 and 32) had a second bedroom within the room so perfect for us or a family of three travelling. The hotel is in a great location with lots of restaurants nearby to chose from. There is no breakfast at the hotel but Reinhards around the corner has superb breakfast very cheaply. Rooms were very quiet, very clean and great price. Bathroom huge and well equipped. Large walk in shower and all very clean again. Our room did not have A/C but not a problem as large windows in all the rooms. We all had robes, slippers, toiletries provided in the rooms. Brilliant value for money. Only warning is that reception only manned until 9.00pm so if you are arriving late then you must let them know as there is a safe key box. Would definitely return!

Stayed 4 nights for a business convention in Berlin. The hotel is hard to find, but it was very clean, quiet and enjoyable. A short walk to Alexanderplatz. The only drawback was the wi-fi was spotty, and no ice machines at all. The staff was exceptional- very informative and helpful, and spoke great English. I'll stay there again the next time I'm in Berlin.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room is clean, fast WiFi speed and comfortable. A well-reputed restaurant is in the same block, Alexanderplatz Hbf is only 10 minutes walk away, and other attractions are also very close by. Would definitely recommend it to others. Two things might be worthwhile mentioning, a. because of its superb location, the Church bell ringing can be heard, but not bothering at all; b. the pillow is very very very soft. It didn't bother me at all, but I can image some people would prefer harder ones.

"Quiet special"
03/11/16 EppoSt Arnhem, The Netherlands
Nikolai Viertel is the oldest part of town, quiet and in a beautiful area. The hotel has a small entrance, taxi drivers might have trouble finding it, at the end of a street with no through traffic. There is no restaurant so you have to find breakfast in the neighborhood. There is a laundry bag but no laundry service. Small reception, very friendly. The rooms are excellent, personally designed, at least room 32 has a large bathroom with great shower and a balcony wich might come out handy in summer. All rooms are decorated differently. No noise in the middle of town. Quiet special

"Birthday treat for my son"
02/26/16 MerylStrepp Buckinghamshire
Stayed 3 nights with two of my sons as a treat for one of their birthdays. I spent a lot of time deciding where to stay and did consider going for another cheaper Hotel in another area. I am pleased I stayed with my original choice. Very good position, central and easy to walk to everything. Area is quiet and feels safe, as does walking back from sights and restaurants late at night. This was extremely important to me in my decision making. The fact there was no 24 hour reception or a bar may not suit everyone. I thought it would bother me as also the no breakfast served on site but actually it was fine, though felt more like staying in an apartment than Hotel. The receptionists were both very helpful and our room was ready when we arrived so we were allowed to check in early which was a huge help. The room was spacious and immaculately clean, the bed linen had that Premier Inn lovely 'brand new' feel. Pillows are very soft, as is main bed as it has a thick topper on it, the second bed is possibly verging on too firm. Great to have robes, slippers and nice toiletries, good towels, and shower was wonderful and plenty of hot water. All great all spotless not a single issue. Unpleasant smell from bathroom when we came back first night, it didn't happen again so we think possibly we had turned the light and therefore fan off too, in bathroom before it had worked its magic! After that we left bathroom light on. Quiet and restful, didn't hear any other guests, and it was fully booked. Tea and coffee tray, no hot chocolate or english breakfast tea, only coffee creamer, so if you like proper tea and milk may need to go and buy some like I did. Good well stocked mini bar with chocolate bars and though didn't use prices seemed reasonable and fair. We went to Tout Sweet for our breakfast each morning. Cute place, lovely staff, huge choice, would recommend.Georges pub/bar, Brauhaus Georgbraeu, a couple minutes away next to Spree, good atmosphere, busy, drank but didn't eat there, but portions looked ample. We also had a lovely meal at a cozy Italian, Solino , also just round the corner, busy and nice friendly atmosphere. We tried the Potato House, waiter a little brusque/unfriendly,we didn't like our food choice, but the beer, Lubzer Pils was the best I tried all trip. We also enjoyed meals at the Block House,near tower, Bombay Spice, near Brandenburg gate and a few bevvies at Augustiner on Charlottenstrase Tip, direct train from Airport takes 25/30 mins, 3.30 euros, can get daily and other travel deals. On way back we ended up having to get 3 trains back to Airport as just missed one and then not another in time. Taking 3 trains and changing platforms etc was stressful so my advice check times of ones returning in advance. Also we were approached by 2 people trying to get us to sign a petition for the deaf literally as we arrived and were leaving Alexander Platz station. I refused and was approached again. Apparently a well known scam for pick pocketing you as you sign have seen posters up warning of it All in all great choice of accommodation in a great location, with lovely staff ( who reply promptly to all emails) close to most things you will want to do and see and 5 minutes walk from Alexander Platz station. Would stay again and would highly recommend.

Lovely little hotel tucked away next to Nikolaikirche. Great location, in a peaceful part of old Berlin but handy for everything. Underground station only a few minute walk. Very welcoming staff and well appointed, spotless rooms. We had breakfast in Reinhards just round the corner, also good and 10% discount for hotel guests. Would definitely stay here on my next visit to Berlin, still lots more I want to see.

The hotel is very nice, it's clean, well maintained, modern and feels safe and peaceful. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, giving us great advice on the best way to see all the main tourist attractions. The location of the hotel is definitely its strongest point. It's in the historical district, surrounded by quirky shops and cobbled streets, it was so pretty and quiet. Yet it is literally a short walk from most things. 5-10 minutes to the TV tower, 10 minutes to Alexanderplatz and the train station. There is also a supermarket within 10 minutes walking distance. We also walked to all the main attractions, I think it took us about 30 minutes to get to the Brandenburg gate (and I'm a slow walker!). I highly recommend this hotel :)
