Good hotel, disappointing lack of flexibility.
"The room was great and hotel very handy for the airport and S-bahn. We were, however, a little disappointed that arriving late morning after a 30 hour flight from Australia no attempt was made to find a room for us. Other hotels have been more accommodating."
