"Great hotel option int he heart of Gay Berlin"
It was great, old building but comfortable once in your roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This Hotel is a little Gem in a GREAT location!"
This hotel occupies the 2nd & 3rd floors of a row house. Definitely unusual for a hotel, but it's a boutique establishment in a non-touristy area of Berlin that is associated with the gay community. It's a real neighborhood, which we preferred. The restaurants and shops have a very local neighborhood feel to them and there are many lovely buildings […] of residential flats all around this property. It's a one block walk to the Viktoria U-Bahn Station in one direction, and a few blocks walk to the Kurfürstendamm Shopping District in the opposite direction. The Ka-De-Wa department store (the largest in Europe) is located there, and more importantly, all the sightseeing buses stop there. We got a two day pass and picked up the bus there in the mornings and then hopped on & off all day long as got a very educational tour of Berlin. We had Apt. 201 on the 2nd floor which was amazing! A kitchen, lovely bath, comfortable bed, big couch, a desk and lots of windows with views on 3 sides. We loved it! The hotel has an ancient lift and a lot of stairs, but that was not a problem for us. We scooted down the back steps to a lovely enclosed courtyard and out into the neighborhood. We loved everything about this place, including the very attentive staff and delicious breakfast every morning. We will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Could do with a spruce up"
Generally a very good hotel. Although not a hotel in the traditional sense. It is in an apartment complex and on the third floor. Has a small lift. Large room and good beds. Nice to have a couch.bathroom is a bit small and looks a bit tidy and could use a general refresh. Hotel breakfast is amazing and in a beautiful separate room. You will hear some […] noise from other rooms and guests. It's a gay friendly hotel but do not let that detract you from visiting. Great location in a fantastic city.

"veruy nice hotel and very well located"
I had a very nice and plecent stay. Staff was very helpfull and nice to me. very well located for gay scene.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were in room 201 which is the biggest room but involves 2 short flight of stairs. Nonetheless, it was a huge beautifully appointed room that has all the amenities one would need. The Wi-Fi signal was weak, more a problem for iPhones than Android phones, tablets or laptops. The bed was very nice and firm. We were minutes from KaDeWe and the train […] station and Kaiser supermarket. Staff were friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super Hotel in bester Lage"
Ich habe mich wieder sehr wohl gefühlt. Sauberes familiäres Hotel. Insbesondere das späte Frühstück (bis 16 Uhr möglich) genieße ich sehr!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful high ceiling rooms. Beds a bit hard for my taste. Friendly staff. Good breakfast with nice service. For evening movie time in English a nice selection of DVDs that could be borrowed for free. Perfect stay for a couple visiting Berlin with a nice selection of restaurants close by and only a short walk to the nearest subway station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Klein und überschaubarGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Dit hotel is ideaal gelegen voor een bezoek aan gay Berlijn. De prijs van de kamer is echter wat aan de hoge kant voor wat je krijgt. Zeker gezien de eenvoudige badkamer.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful boutique hotel in a great location"
08/04/14 chrissie-ontheroad Skien Municipality, Norway
We stayed at the ArtHotel Connection for two nights as a weekend get away and we loved it! Our room was large and clean with lovely high ceilings and a boutique feel to it. The room has free wifi and a handy docking station for iPhones. The staff were helpful and friendly and the area is spot on if you are going to Berlin for great food, nice wine and shopping. Tucked away only a couple of blocks from the busy shopping area around KaDeWe (takes about 5min to walk there), this hotel is situated on a picturesque, leafy street with lovely bars and restaurants. We ate locally two out of three nights and we were especially impressed with a small Italian place located about 10min walk from the hotel - it was called Osteria Ribaltone and is well worth a visit. But there are plenty of other bars and restaurants within walking distance that looked absolutely lovely. One thing to be aware of is that quite a few of these restaurants only accept cash, and the nearest cash points are not always close at hand. The nearest U-bahn station is close by (5min walk) and we found taxis quite reasonable as well. All in all we had a brilliant stay at the ArtHotel Connection in Berlin.
"Charming, convenient location and great breakfast"

I can't recommend this pace enough. I definitely will stay here the next time I'm in Berlin. Everything was excellent, from the late check-in process to the breakfast to the internet access and the room design and conveniences.
"Perfect Hotel in a Great Location"

I stayed 5 nights at the ArtHotel Connection and loved every minute of it. The staff is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, the gentleman who checked me in, provided me with directions, suggestions and a lot of useful information about Berlin, I truly appreciate all his patience and time he spent with me. (my bad, I forgot his name) My room was large, clean and had a kitchen. And when I dropped something behind the refrigerator, and it had to be moved a little to reach behind it, I was very impressed how clean it was. WOW! every last attention to detail is done here. Also, Jans and Sasha, hooked me up with suggestions and directions, on where to go and things to see.. this was my first trip to Berlin and I was traveling by myself. I eat healthy and vegetarian, and located nearby is a healthy (bio) supermarket. And, I agree with the other reviews, it is very close to the train and shopping at KaDeWe. And most exciting of all, I am from NYC and I was in Berlin the night they won the World Cup and everyone was out celebrating, I got back to the hotel close to 3AM.. it was safe. And with the windows closed, I heard nothing. Thank you again, and I look forward to staying here again.

Highly recommended, perfectly located, well run hotel with exceptional service. This is the second time that we have stayed here and we are definitely coming back. Service is beyond compare. The location is quiet but a few minutes from the U-Bahn, and 5 minutes from the main shopping area.
"Great hosts in fab old building"
Relive ancient Berlin grandeur with a modern twist. OK, it's an old building so floorboards squeak and you may hear some noise from neighbors. In return you can enjoy a great building in a great location. And most of all, your hosts will make you feel very welcome. I had a good time in Berlin. Thanks guys!
"Feeling welcome and at home"
05/28/14 Anne-van-Loon Vught, The Netherlands
Never in a hotel we felt as much at ease and welcome as in Art Hotel. Yes there are more luxures hotels but they don't have the atmosfere and authenticity of Berlin as the Art Hotel has. Art Hotel is the location to experience the (gay) Berlin feeling. The location is perfect. Bars, restaurants and Berlins shopping area on the doorstep and with the U-Bahn very close Berlin is at your feet. Schöneberg is wonderful and authentic quarter with lovely people. Looking forward coming back.
"Could do with a spruce up"

This us not your traditional type of hotel so don't come with unrealistic expectations. It markets itself as gay friendly but anyone would be comfortable here. The hotel is located in an apartment building and is on the third floor. There is a lift in the building. You'll actually receive 3 keys; being for the front door, the hotel door and then your room. The hotel provides really good value for money and our room rate included wifi and breakfast. The breakfast is really delicious and plentiful and is served in a separate room. We stayed in a standard room which was nice and spacious. The beds are clean and comfortable and there is plenty of space for bags etc and nice to have a desk and a small sofa. There is a safe and a small wardrobe. The floor is exposed old timber and is really charming. Because it's a converted apartment building, you will hear the comings and goings of the other guests. The rooms could also do with proper block out curtains to keep out light. The bathroom could do with a bit of a freshen up, as it looks a bit tired. The showers are small. We were actually booked for 3 nights and had fully prepaid in advance. Unfortunately our flight to Berlin was cancelled by the airline and we were booked on a flight the following day. The hotel did not provide us with a refund, which is understandable and their right. But given they had very few guests and the circumstances of our stay and late arrival, I do think it would have been nice to have been upgraded to one of their superior rooms. They had our money already, and I think this would have been a nice gesture. During our stay there was work going on to the outside render of the building, so we were woken around 7am but that's not the fault of the hotel and the work should be finished within a week. The hotel is in a really good location with underground stops nearby. It is in a gay friendly suburb but that was not its main attraction as my partner and I are not into the 'scene' at all. I would gladly pick this hotel in the future given it's location and value for money. It's award winning for a good reason.
"Great location in the gay area of Berlin"
05/05/14 paulandandrew Newcastle
We stayed over Easter in 2014, which happens to be leather pride week. The pub underneath is a fantastic place to sink a few German beers and people watch. The hotel is in the perfect location, close to the trains and one of the best shopping strips in Berlin. Our room was really spacious and well appointed. The office is in one of the rooms off the main hall, so we did not see a lot of the owners. When we did they were very helpful and friendly. A great place to stay, especially for a gay couple.
"A good hotel"
04/12/14 Zephyros_ath Athens, Greece
This is hotel is suggested for gay travelers. The building is old but the hotel very clean. Service was also very good. Near to the metro station and the staff were very friendly. It is not the common type of hotels you know since in the building there are other appartments.
