2.06km from Gaststatte Scherzo ColombaI visit Berlin a lot and had considered staying in motel one, but had a terrible experience with Glasgow Motel One so I have avoided on principle ever since. However, I gave in as the price was so good. I had a queen room which to my delight had what I would consider a double bed. Sadly not a double duvet which seems to be quite standard in Berlin hotels and apartments, and is really, really annoying. Luckily it was boiling hot so it didn't really matter. The air con was very good, fast wi-fi and I could connect music to tv, although not my netflix which was a shame. There was a good amount of hangers for a brief stay, which was a pleasant surprise. Bathroom was perfect size with a very good shower. Surprised that some people have said rooms were small, I thought it was perfectly good size. My room was right at the lift which was a worry as in my experience this often means noisy, but the hotel seemed to have good soundproofing. I didn't hear anything at all from other rooms, or even from the street outside which is busy. I was here during week, so maybe bit noisier at weekend, but the lack of street noise and obviously fantastic double glazing was great. Great area if you want to hang out in Kreuzberg and only couple of stops to Alexanderplatz. It is a budget hotel so you do get what you pay for - the reception area is basically the bar which is a bit odd and there wasn't a lot of atmosphere, but who cares when there is plenty of atmosphere outside the door. I generally stay in an apartment when in Berlin, but very likely to now make motel one my berlin base.
