positiv: The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent.
negativ: My room was in a separate building to the main hotel. There was no protection from the weather to get to it. There was a set of steps down. My room was on the second floor of the building but there was no lift.
The evening menu in the restaurant was very limited and what I one evening (chicken fricasse) was dreadful and served luke warm.
The was no minibar in my room, only an empty fridge.
The lamp on the desk did not work.
The pillows on the bed were too soft.
I received poor advice about the approximate cost of a taxi journey to Schoenefeld Airport (20 euros) and opted for that rather than the free shuttle bus from Fruit Logistica. The actual fare (including perhaps 5 euros waiting time at Fruit Logistica was 45 euros.
This hotel does not deserve its four star rating.
positiv: Very big rooms with kitchenette.
negativ: Kitchenette yes, but no instant coffee or creamer for coffee making provided. No proper curtains to draw at night.
Items they ran out of during brekfast were not replaced at the buffet. Eggs to order were apparently offered, but there was no sign or information about this. If you didn't ask for it, you didn't get it!
Inconvenient location. Only bus stop nearby. No shops, bars, restaurants withing walking distance,- not even a minimart or petrol station...
Good for long stays for travellers with their own car.
Not good for city breaks.
