One of the best things about this hotel is its location as it is right on Alexanderplatz in the heart of East Berlin. It's right next to the TV tower, and the building where it is housed is a landmark building in Berlin. Right next door are the Kaukof Galleries, which is a very famous chain of department stores in Germany. It´s a 5 minute walk to the Museum Island and Berlin Cathedral. Going to the Museum Island is also accessible by the Jewish Ghetto, a neighborhood that is really worth a visit. A few minutes away, but going to the left from the hotel, there is the Nikolai Quarter, where Berlin emerged, and where you can see the City of East Berlin.
