Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Spanish architect Jose Rafael Moneo, the hotel was part of a gamble on the development of the long decrepit Potsdamer Platz after the Cold War. The Grand Hyatt has proved itself beautifully ever since. Foodies flock to Vox restaurant’s global menus (complete with sake sommelier) and the hotel’s array of culinary and bartending classes and chef events; while those looking for an escape from the gritty city can seek refuge—or private tulayoga “balancing” classes—up above in the glassed-in Club Olympus Spa and indoor pool. The minimalist modern rooms have flatscreens, free fruit and bottled water, and marble and cherry wood bathrooms with spa tubs, rain showers and heated floors.
In the Area
Once an important hub in the capital, then virtually destroyed during WWII, divided with the erection of the Berlin Wall and laid to waste in the Cold War, Potsdamer Platz has weathered its share of ups and downs. But it’s all up now in this massively redeveloped ‘hood. Commerce, shopping, culture and dining converge in the quadrisected circle dominated by Daimler and Sony. Beyond the immediate gleam, the hotel’s Mitte district location places it close to historical sights and within walking distance or a short drive of tourist must-stops like Television Tower, Brandenburg Gate and the somber Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.
How to Get There
Great hotel, great breakfast, great staff, great spa. It’s always very nice to stay at GH Berlin, where you are taken care of perfectly from the moment you step into the hotel until you leave it. Many thanks for GH staff.
This is a great, upscale hotel in Berlin. I stayed for 3 nights with a friend and we had a basic room with 2 twin beds. The beds were "huge" for twin beds and super comfortable. The room was modern and spacious. Breakfast was great, but crowded, so service was a bit slow in the mornings, especially when you're racing to get somewhere. I wouldn't say I loved the area the hotel was located (didn't feel any different from New York City in terms of character), but it was super convenient to get anywhere else you needed to go on the S or U lines. Easily walk-able to Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, and more. Would definitely recommend if staying in Berlin!
All the staff were fantastic and made my stay very enjoyable - they were genuinely friendly and extremely helpful. The room was spacious and well planned out - bed comfy, had a great night's sleep and room service food was very good indeed. I will definitely go back there again when I am next in Berlin
