Despite the name Alexanderplatz (referring to the public square), this hotel is across the street from Volkspark
Despite its name, the NH Berlin Alexanderplatz is a 15-minute walk or 7-minute tram ride from Alexanderplatz, a large public square and transport hub in the central Mitte district of Berlin. Locals often call it simply Alex, referring to the square and the surrounding neighborhood. This central area is surrounded by several notable structures including the Fernsehturm (TV Tower), the second tallest structure in Europe, and upscale shopping. Closer to the hotel is Volkspark, the oldest public park in Berlin -- great for jogging and biking. For sightseeing, Strausberger Platz subway station is just half a mile from the hotel. Ask the front desk for tram and subway advice.
Berlin is the capital and largest city in Germany best known for its lively nightlife (restaurants and bars stay open late), cafes, museums, palaces, street art, and historic sites.
This NH Hotel should be named after the Volkspark (across the street) rather than the public square Alexanderplatz (a tram ride away). Despite this minor confusion for first-time arrivals, the 225-room NH Alexanderplatz offers good value within walking distance to transport. Simple rooms are decorated in warm tones and have flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, minibars, and spacious bathrooms. International cuisine and German specialties are served in the restaurant and the bar has great natural light and an extensive cocktail menu. During the summer, there is a lovely outdoor terrace. Hotel bikes are available for rent, and a wellness area offers a sauna and steam room. However, there is a fee for breakfast and Wi-Fi is only free in the lobby.
