We spent ages choosing our hotel in Berlin as we were going to be spending five nights there. After much Googling and research, we decided on the Adina Apartment Hotel Berlin Mitte as it was in a handy location with well-appointed rooms and units that allowed for self-catering. This was important to us as the Pacific Peso (aka the Australian dollar) was weak as a kitten when we visited.

The Adina Berlin Mitte Hotel features 139 rooms, split between one or two-bedroom apartments and studio rooms with a stylish fit-out. If having a washer/dryer is important to you, opt for an apartment rather than a studio room as these don’t have their own laundry facilities. If you’re staying in a studio to save money and need to do a load of washing, there’s a public laundromat within easy walking distance.

We picked up two Berlin WelcomeCards that also included transport in the ABC zones (which is pretty much everywhere, including to and from the aiport) from the Berlin Brandenberg WelcomeCenter at the airport where the lovely staff member wrote down what train we should catch to the hotel. The WelcomeCards were terrific and were really easy to use. Being able to jump on and off public transport any time we wanted to was an added bonus when we were out touring the city all day.

Getting to the hotel was as simple as travelling to Berlin’s main train station and walking less than 10 minutes straight up the road then turning right. If you have the Berlin WelcomeCard that includes free transport, you can also jump on one of the many trams which stop just around the corner from the hotel. We did this for our trip back to the airport instead of wheeling our bags down to the train station.

The hotel’s location was great as it was just around the corner from the main road and had a forecourt out the front which meant there was virtually no street noise from passing cars. The foyer had a fireplace for winter visits and comfortable lounge seating for hanging out.

We received a friendly welcome from a smiling staff member who spoke fluent English and ensured we were booked in and had our keys in hand within moments. There was a handy selection of pantry staples, snacks and other essentials available next to reception but we used the three nearby supermarkets. Top tip: The one on the main road has a selection of hot and cold meals and sandwiches etc which was a big hit with the local lunch time crowd and also with us.

After a brief chat about the hotel’s facilities, nearby shopping options for groceries and tram stops, we were ready to check out our one bedroom apartment which was way bigger than we expected. The décor was modern with light brown carpets and artwork that reflected the Adina’s Australian roots with Aboriginal paintings and botanical prints.

Our room had the same modern styling and décor as what we had seen throughout the hotel and was equipped with all the amenities needed for a short or long stay. It was also serviced daily so we arrived back to spotlessly clean ‘home away from home’ with the dishwasher powder, laundry powder etc all replenished.

The king-size bed was a welcome surprise as our previous European hotel experiences involved a double bed which isn’t much fun if you’re 6 foot 4 inches tall. All of the rooms at the hotel have air conditioning, a TV and a medium-sized fridge. Our bathroom had a shower over a bathtub with good water pressure, a toilet and Australian bathroom amenities. WiFi was fast and free.

We were impressed with the breakfast in the hotel restaurant, Alto, which featured the standard European warm and cold offerings, including scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages, plus fruits, muesli, croissants and pancakes, meats and cheeses. The hotel also has a small gym and a heated swimming pool as a bonus and something a bit unique in Berlin.

There was plenty to love about the hotel but the thing that really stood out was the hotel’s superb location. It was either a quick walk or tram ride from all the major sights like the Reichstag, Berlin TV Tower and the Brandanderg Gate. Overall, the Adina Apartment Hotel Berlin Mitte is a terrific place to base yourself in Berlin for short or longer stays in a quiet and well-connected location.
