Stayed 1 night recently on local business. Despite the near'ish main road flyover its a fairly peaceful spot. Reception were efficient. I had a room in the North lodge, there are these two room annexes over the road which is unusual but not a big inconvenience, as you can park right outside and your away from being disturbed by any events at the main hotel.
Room was basic but modern and comfortable and a good size although the bed too firm for me which limited the quality of my sleep. (its no doubt fine for some people though).
Ate in the restaurant, the conservatory area looking out over the river was very pleasant. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive. The menu is quite small and a bit dated and predictable. My food was however of a good quality, tasty burger, a varied salad and brilliant chunky fries (like mini crispy roasts) .
Credit to the kitchen who provided my courses in a timely way despite the entire senior population of Berlin were being fed in the main restaurant area at the same time, two coach loads of Germany's answer to Saga tours were on a stopover.
Only issue was the wifi was a bit useless, very old fashioned access requiring a relatively long form to be filled in to register for access. The problem being on a smartphone the connection would time out before you could enter all the details required and register. Gave up after endless attempts.
I would use the hotel again if visiting the area, very convenient location for a getaway next morning on the main route. less
