This is one of Germany's largest hotels. It is a fabulous property with almost deluxe class rooms and an excellent choice of restaurants, even though the location is not central, but it can be easily reached by public transport.
The hotel is located on a quiet side street in Berlin- Neukoeln. The hotel is within easy walking distance of public transport which takes guests straight to the city centre.
The rooms are very large and in exceptional condition, as are the bathrooms. They are decorated in a modern style with rich dark coloured carpets and high quality furniture with striking works of Russian modern art on the walls. (The hotel owner is an avid art collector and sponsor of young artists).
The design of the building is loosely based around that of a ship. It is a huge angular building constructed of glass, steel and beige stone.
The hotel has several restaurants ranging from classic Italian to Thai.
The very large lobby is a huge atrium style area with a high glass roof. It resembles an Italian piazza in style with various restaurants and bars leading off the lobby.
