Lively neighborhood (if you want quiet, ask for a courtyard room at the back) within walking distance to lots of interesting Berlin sites, or hop on the public transit at the front door -- or even better, rent a bike from the hotel and zip around this fascinating bike-friendly city (OK, the bike rental is more expensive than the place around the corner, but you can't beat the convenience). Comfortable beds (although the mini-pillows were kind of odd -- adequate, but odd); good shower (although the funny tub/shower design resulted in a fair amount of water on the floor, but nothing unmanageable). What we liked the best: the outstanding bar tender, who really knows his cocktails and the interesting ingredients at his disposal. Don't bother springing for the breakfast as there is a great espresso place right next door with free wifi and really nice people. I would definitely return.

We loved the hotel and the bar, the only thing that was VERY disappointing was the included "breakfast". Although it is stated as ending at 10am they don't ever refill anything so when things are gone they are gone. And it's meek to start with- hard rolls, green bananas, yogurt. No cereal, meats/cheeses, ect. They should buff it up or end it altogether as many guests were complaining.

We got the room first on the garden side and it was noisy because of the neighbor disco. We asked the new room and we got immediately new wonderful street side room which was quit. We really liked this stylish art hotel with window wall on the street side. The hotel staff was also very helpful and friendly. We will choose this hotel again when visiting in Berlin.

It was a unique experience staying in this hotel. Especially the huge window in my room that offers a complete view of the street. The only thing that I did not like was that there was'nt any price on those special socks for massage and I kept all of them (four) in my laguage because I thought that they were offered for free. Then I had to pay eight Euros for each unless I was opening my laguage that was packed at the time. I prefered to pay and I gave the socks as a gift to my friends.

This is an excellent hotel, in a perfect location. Room rates are very good, we paid 100 euros per room per couple. Only slight negative comment would be the cost of the breakfast (14e) but it was excellent and plentiful - so I guess you pay for what you get. Staff are excellent, food is also top quality. There is a Vodka bar, certainly not cheap, but offers an incredible range of cocktails. The hotel is positioned in walking distance of all the principle buildings/attractions, however, you are within 60 seconds of the plentiful and efficient public transport system. Overall just about the best place to stay in berlin.

An excellent hotel: we really appreciated the room with the "open" bathroom. We suggest to ask for a room on the street side to look outside and see people walking by in a nice berliner street. Avoid the first and the second floor otherwise people from outside can easily see you while you are in your room! An advice: having breakfast at the hotel is expensive (12 euros if you reserve the day before otherwise 17 euros). It is better to have breakfast in the bar just on the right of the hotel (the Ambualance bar, or something like this....): people are friendly and the cappuccino is excellent (and their cakes as well).

Nice quality hotel, immacuately clean, beautiful designs, very new; we had a great view of Orienberger Str; good central location for hopping onto metro, or going for a meal along Orienberger Str; very lively area, huge art scene, can get a little seedy with hookers on the streets but everyone pretends they arn't there; the restaurants are great and not expensive. I wish breakfast had been included in the price; the bathroom isn't really a 'room' but it's nicely compactly done, could have done with choice of more privacy with proper curtain for around bath area and not see-through one. Free internet in bar downstairs. We were offered choice to have breakfast for $12 (not $16) but decided against it, but it looked pretty good and I wished we'd tried it.

Camera piccola ma molto accogliente. Fantastica posizione e buona qualità dei servizi. Però perche' ritrovarsi degli euro pagati non previsti sulla carta di credito? E perchè in un letto matrimioniale c'erano due piumini singoli?

The hotel is handily located between the tourist traps of Friedrichstraße and in vogue Hackescher Markt with chic cafes, designer shoe/garment shops, and non-commercial galleries. Modest design inside out is complimented with fashionable touches: red carpets throughout the building make you feel like a visiting star of Berlinale. You might feel home in company of JFK or Marlene commemorated on canvas curtain portraits. Floor to ceiling windows add an extra visual effect to an open plan room/bathroom. The downstairs bar offer an enormous variety of vodka based cocktails. Try Philip’s, the bartenders’ own specialty: 52% ginger vodka. Room service is incredibly fast and attentive. Reception desk is efficient and flexible. Management does something right about their staff. They seem genuinely happy serving you and love their managers back. Amazing.

We stayed in Berlin at New Year, and this hotel was ideally located. the street it is on has many interesting and varied bars and restaurants, and is within walking distnace of the Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island and Unter den Linden. It is right next door to the Tacheles Ruins art comunity which may not be to "Daily Mail readers'" taste! The breakfast in the restaurant in the hotel was very good, if a little more expensive than nearby restaurants. It is a buffet so you can get your money's worth from it(!) The service in the bar in the hotel (the Velvet Lounge) was extremely slow the one time we used it. this was the only bad point.

Comments: The sink design is ridiculously sized and leaves no room for wash bag/ makeup bag/ contact lens equipment. (The long mirror under the T.V. is useless for applying makeup or inserting contact lenses as it is too low.) The red wine was terrible (old/corked - tasted like sherry) - once opened I could not drink it - but luckily when I mentioned this when checking out I was not charged for this.

This is a great boutique hotel in a very vibrant part of Berlin. The rooms are a bit small for what I'm used to, but there are many thoughtful touches and I really enjoyed the stay. Also, there are many restaurants, bars and sights nearby, I ended up always returning to the hotel area to hang out.

The Arcotel is a good 4 star hotel in a convenient and interesting location. The immediate area is red-light, and there is an alternative culture nightclub nearby (with little to recommend for the live music). The hotel is fairly new and the rooms are well appointed, if compact. We were generally pleased with the hotel.

Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo, in pieno centro storico, di fatto ha anche un ristorante interno, parlano italiano. Originale la soluzione architettonica del bagno che, però, può creare qualche problema in caso di persone con poca intimità, in quanto la doccia ed il lavandino sono nella stessa stanza da letto: scotto da pagare per l'originalità dell'architetto! Però le stanze con i lettini separati hanno il bagno tradizionale, anche se con la vista interna.

The room is fashion and has a modern and clean design, but could be more "friendly" to the guest: the front window (it is a "panoramic wall")occuping all the front of the room and this put on exposition the guest. To avoid this it is necessary to "adjust" (NOT EASY)every day the curtains

Very nice place for Berlin Cultural Happenings - Not the official standard Potsdammer Platz stuff - But an alternative scene and a lot of good restaurants for a very moderate price. We visited the Blue Men Group at the Potsdammer Platz and we were astonished about the freezer atmosphrere (at 25C Temp ..) surrounding this "well known" place.

The hotel is excellent in almost any respect. The design of rooms is special, going beyond traditional boring, the quitness of rooms, the centrality, and easy access from the hotel to Berlin with public transportation. The view to the busy and "athentic" street (although one should be prepared to the prostitutes bugging men walking in this street). The only issue we had is regarding service. In the reception there is a huge poster inviting for a breakfast at 12.5 Euros. When we checked-out, we had to pay 15. Why? We were told that in one of the leaf letters inside the room, it is explained that you get this price only if ordering a day in advance. The poster did not say anything like that. This is very unprofessional to begin with. It is even more unprofessional to continue to argue with us, while refusing to charge the published price. Still, we would stay at this wonderful hotel despite this unpleasant service. Perhaps next time we will be ready for a “third-world” mentality in advance.

Arcotel Velvet is well positioned in the Mitte district offering guests easy access (by foot or S-bahn)to numerous top tourist attractions. The interior decor is great if you enjoy 'designer' hotel accommodation...full height street-facing glazed wall in some rooms and a bathroom that dissolves into the room without a dividing wall all adds to the visitor experience. Quality Thai restaurant opposite.

Extremely well situated for transport, restaurants, cafes, etc. - and especially for the main museums on Museuminsel, the Arcotel Velvet turned out to be an excellent choice. The reception staff could not have been more helpful and cheerful. There was a mistake over the number of nights in our booking (not their fault) and they sorted it out immediately. We had a second-floor room at the front (overlooking Oranienburgerstrasse) but, although the double-glazing cut the traffic noise to a minimum, we were awakened around 3.00 am by revellers emerging from the Tacheles complex next door. Next day we asked for a room at the rear, which was arranged without difficulty, and this proved to be very tranquil. The facilities were excellent (the free broadband access in the bar was very useful), although we didn't sample the breakfast, preferring to use the nearby cafes (usually "Ambulance", next door). Our second (rear-facing) room had no bathtub, just a (large and very efficient!) shower, but this was not a problem for us. All in all, we were very impressed - especially by the warm welcome and unfailingly cheerful service - and would definitely return to this superbly situated and well-run hotel.

The location is perfect, with dozens of inexpensive yet hip restaurants and bars lining the street (we liked the bar "O & G" for late night and the Indonesian restaurant Mirchi, both directly across the street from the Arcotel). There is a subway stop less than a block away that can connect you to all parts of the city (although we walked to a lot of the sights too). The perfect place to stay in Berlin.

Overall, and particularly in terms of value for money, this is an excellent hotel.

Travelled the last weekend in November. The location is excellent; just yards from the U6-UBahn and good restaurants straight across the road. Two bakeries near by so no problem popping over to get 'breakfast on the go'. €3.50 for 2 crossants and 2 teas is much cheaper than in Dublin. Friendly staff and the room was ideal for 2 people. Lovely and warm inside (freezing and snowing outside). Excellent trip overall.

Very well located and calm. Personel was professional and always helpful. Rooms were reasonably spacious and modern. Excellent bed but pillows could be better. Very modern bathroom area. Price/quality was quite interesting for the area (110 Euros but no breakfast). Breakfast was somewhat expensive (15 Euros per person) but we guess that this is the typical method for any hotel to partially make up for the reduced income due to the internet method booking. Despite the 15 Euros,breakfast was quite good and also abundant. Avoid it and get a coffee outside only if you eat very little in the morning ...

The rooms are impressive at first view, but not very practical. You can't control either TV or DVD from the bed because of viewing angle, there was no room number on the door of the room ( 616) the price is high and everything is extra, like breakfast ( something that should be printerd on the print out , and something that should be said when checking in. I was not informed at check in , and was told the breakfast times, I assumed that this meant breakfast was included and was surprised at check out that had to pay 15 Euro for a breakfast, that I could have had much better food and much more friendly staff if I had just crossed the street. Only when I returned home and looked at the web site did I see that breakfast was not included, in small print at a not very obvious place on the web site. I think that you should make these things clear. For the price I would have given up on DVD and think that if a hotel is goind High tech then what about a coffee maker in the room!! ON the same trip I stayed at the comfort Auberge and it was Far ahead of vELVET IN FRIENDLENESS, VALUE FOR MONEY AND SERVICE, i KNOW THAT ON MY NEXT TRIP WILL not BE AT vELVET

We stayed in the loft suite and it was wonderful. Hotel is well situated, lots of restaurants, activity on the street. Yet the rooms were quiet. Very spacious, clean, attractive. Breakfast and parking were extra.

Would have given note Excellent if not for the following minor deficiencies: 1. No parking in front of hotel; not even temporarily. 2. No one to help with the suitcases of an elderly couple. 3. Hotel's Parking garage out of service or not in use. 4. Nearest public parking lot is 5 - 7 minutes away.

Good location for exploring the city. Every conceivable restaurant opposite hotel. Tram stop at front door and would highly recommend public transport; efficient, frequent and covers every possible `must see`. Hotel staff were friendly and courteous,would recommend to anyone.

La situacion del hotel es perfecta para visitar la ciudad. El unico pero, el desayuno. Es un buffet normalito que de manera alguna justifica los 15€ por persona que cobran.

After being charged 55 euros(about 65 USA dollars) for a very precariously placed wooden vase on the reception desk ledge that was accidently knocked over when signing in, it was hard to feel a warm welcome at the hotel. The front desk staff was cold and rigid and made me feel as if I had done this on purpose.

This hotel isn't cheap but its very well located to Berlin's main attractions. Both Alexander Platz and Museum Island are well within walking distance. The Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate are a very short subway ride, which is also cheap and easy to take. The hotel is very clean and run very efficiently. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. You'll find that this hotel is situation near a large number of restaurants as well as a very fun and interesting beach located across the river from the museum island.

We found Arcotel Velvet hotel is the perfect location to stay while in East Berlin. The rooms are soundly designed with floor to ceiling windows for chilling and watching this beautiful city go by. We were just a short walking distance to the shopping and tourist areas. The staff were so helpful with everything, we look forward to visiting again some time soon. Oh, when you are ordering a cocktail ask for the 'Absolute Hunk', it's something special! Enjoy your stay!

Fantastic location - Oranienburger Strasse is full of great bars and restaurants. Excellent transport links, but also within easy walking distance to Museums / Brandenburg Gate etc. Hotel itself was excellent value for money, friendly staff, clean rooms. Would highly recommend it.

L'hotel è nuovo, molto moderno e lo consiglio a persone giovani. Il bagno è all'aperto nella stanza ( solo il water è in una stanzina) e potrebbe non piacere a persone adulte. Per i giovani è veramente carino!!! é centrale, con 2 linee di metro a 2 passi. Ve lo consiglio. Solamente la colazione è un po' cara ma si può fare fuori dall'albergo. Ciao

for the price your getting a great little hotel with an ideal location for seeing this city.If your looking for luxury look elsewhere but the rooms although smallish are designed perfectly .We loved the heat lamps and the swing out mirror which turned the sink from a front to side loader.The bar staff were friendly ,well informed and mix a good cocktail(ask for Toby's special with cucumber).If you like bavarian cuisine the restaurant is the award winning Luttner andWerner ,an Austrian favourite to match Arcotels own roots as a company .You will be surprised by the red wines ,very smooth. Hope this helps someone .

At first I was a little concerned about the locality of the hotel and the view from my room was not great but it turned out to be ideally situated for sight-seeing and the Fredrickstrasse station. The area was quite 'arty' and had many good, moderately priced and varied resturants and was quite lively in the evenings. My room was excellent and being at the back of the hotel meant it was very quiet, the view was not important. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 days in Berlin and plan to go back as there was so much I didn't have time to see. I would definitely use the Arcotel Velvet again if the rate was as good

Beautiful designer rooms. Very quiet. Everything absolutely perfect. Beds even comfortable with 2 pillows!!! Shower & bath continuous hot water supply and good shower power! DVD player a bonus for those cold wintery nights (hotel provdies DVD library for €5 a day). Lots of restuarants in immediate area - check out the Indian restaurant Amrit. Very close to U Bahn, tram & S Bahn. You won't want to leave your hotel room!!! We payed just €76 a night per room for this - RECOMMENDED
