0.6km from Doner Kebap Linden GrillThis hotel/hostel is centrally located near the Reichstag and Berlin Hauptbahnhof (central train station). I paid for and got a single bedroom with shared bathroom. One of the biggest reasons you should stay for is the location. If you're coming from Berlin's Tegal airport just take the TXL bus and get off at Karlsplatz. If you're coming from Berlin Hbf (main train station) take bus 147 and get off at Schumannstr. It was warm in Berlin the day I arrived and walking into the small room with no AC had me thinking whether or not I would cancel and book a room at a more expensive hotel w/ AC. I decided to give it a chance. At first I was unable to located my room due to jetlag and one of the pleasant staff went out of his way to help me find it. He also assisted me in bringing me a working fan along with an extra pillow. I cannot say enough about the people that work here. They are so friendly and helpful. I've had plenty of salty attitudes at budget hotels around the world but not here. It's clear they want their guests to enjoy themselves and be comfortable. My room itself was small and basic, but adequate. There's clearly a funky vibe with an emphasis on the arts as the name of the hotel indicates. There was no TV so I think next time I would upgrade to one that included one. As you've probably already heard the hotel is literally right next to the train tracks. Personally I find the sounds of the city relaxing and rhythmic but the noise could be a problem for light sleepers. The bed was on the firm side which could bother some people. I did wake up with a stiff back the first morning but it probably had more to do with all of the sightseeing I did the day before. The bathrooms are shared but EXTREMELY clean. I mean spotless. One should bring a cheap pair of sandals regardless though. Breakfast is next door at the Habel am Reichstag. If you purchase the day before there's a discount. (about 11 euros at the time of this review) You'll grab a small ticket from the staff that you'll hand to the waiter of the restaurant. Simple process. The offerings were plenty and well worth the money. Very tasty apple juice and coffee too. All in all it was a decent stay. Kudos once again to their terrific staff.
