There are at least 3 good restaurants within easy walking distance and a lot more a bit farther, and some pubs (walking away from the rear of the hotel. We thought it a good tourist base. It is quite easy to use Sbahn or train/bus from the airport. We would recommend the Sheraton for a Berlin break. WiFi worked but was not that quick albeit usable.The location is excellent. The 100 and M29 bus stop is a few minutes walk so you can get to Alexanderplatz, Zoologischer Garden, KaDeWe (5 minutes!) and other shops.
