I am going to get the bad out of the way first: temperature adjustment (September), in the room, needs to be more than opening and closing the windows.
Now for the good: I will begin by saying that I would gladly stay here again. The location is close to the the bus that will take you to the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate and the Wittenberg U-Bahn station. Only slightly further is the Zoologischer Garten train center complete with bus terminals and an U-Bahn. On foot you are close to the KuDamm, the Zoo, many restaurants, and some landmarks.
Breakfast in the hotel is limited and adequate, I never left hungry. The buffet is continually replenished during the hours of breakfast and the coffee is plentiful. If you stay a few days, you might consider a small gratuity to the woman who ensures you have everything you need to start the day.
The singles here are small, no doubt about it, but what do expect for the price? Some of the doubles are quite large, others, less so. Talk to the front desk if you are not happy and give them a chance to work things out for you.
In general, when traveling in Europe, it is best to remember that you are in different countries with different customs, different manners, different expectations, different cultures. Staying at smaller, non-chain hotels like this one can be fun and challenging, and, to my way of thinking, one of the reasons to travel. Do not expect big smiles and greetings like you might get in the US, Germans are not quite as expressive. This does not make them rude. I found all personnel at Air in Berlin Hotel to be very helpful, kind and accommodating.
Stay here, you will not regret it.
