Built in 1907, all but destroyed in 1945 during WWII and rebuilt in 1997, the Adlon is known as one of Berlin’s most famous (and most opulent) hotels. Guests enjoy courtyard or city views from 382 rooms or gaze out at the Brandenburg Gate from the two-Michelin-starred Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer, while dining on contemporary European fare by chef de cuisine Hendrik Otto. Star chef Tim Raue also holds court on-site, serving Japanese-Thai fusion at Germany’s first outpost of his international hotspot restaurant and bar, Sra Bua. Burn it all off at a yoga class at the spa by Resense, in the indoor pool or with a morning trainer at the gym.
In the Area
Starting at the Brandenburg Gate, guests have easy access to Berlin’s sights from the hotel’s central Mitte location, including the Reichstag (go to the top for views of Tiergarten and the striking glass dome), picturesque Gendarmenmarkt and Neue Synagoge’s golden dome. Simply strolling along the Unter den Linden will take visitors past historic and religious architectural gems, war memorials and embassies, all under the shade of the linden trees which give the boulevard its name. At the other end, the walk culminates on Museum Island in the Spree River, home to five noteworthy state museums including the Pergamon.
How to Get There
Such a bad experience.
I admit that the interior design of the property is classic and luxurious.
But I am sorry Kempinski, you have offended us deeply by asking if we are the hotel guests, even our room numbers. After that, you didn't even apologize and show us the way to the elevator?
When I went to your spa, your receptionist is a wired guy. I asked him if you have the shower cap, said on the sign aside, he thought if I were asking where is the shower and said it is just there. Seriously?
Even our lugguge is not taken care properly and let us stand in the cold wind for a long time.
Kemspinski, if you keep judging people based on their identities and providing service accordingly, you won't have a future.
This is not luxury at all.
My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay in this lovely hotel. It is immaculate in design and service. Beautiful interior and in the perfect location next to the Brandenburg Gate. We were upgraded upon check in to a beautiful junior suite. Everything in this hotel is first class as was the service provided by each employee we encountered. Kempenski has become my favorite hotel brand because I am always wowed by my experience every time I stay in one.
Stayed here for three nights with my wife and our two daughters. Booked thru American Express ‘fine hotels & resorts’ and was treated to a few extras on the back of that, highly recommended (for platinum cardholders)
Friendly staff from check-in to check-out and a fantastic breakfast, which is likely the best I have ever had - and the Mrs. agrees. The spa was also much appreciated, and it was a nice touch that children were allowed in the pool area if accompanied by an adult, especially appreciated by our eldest daughter.
The hotel offers ‘everything’ in dining, from an ice cream stand and bakery shop to the left of the impressive entrance and a bar and restaurants that cater to every occasion.
The location on Unter den Linden is impressive in itself , neighbouring the Reichstag, and the embassies of the worlds major powers.
There is no doubt that we will stay here for our next visit to Berlin, and I can only recommend anyone else to follow that example!
The focus on detail here, if it was the reception, our rooms or the dining room, it felt like being back in time but still having a touch of modernity. A fabolous place. With 3 nights in Berlin I could have stayed 6 nights more, as the rooms were cosy and very quiet. As we had long days, this was the perfect place to get back and relax. Considering their team, I think it was the most professional team we met throughout our time in Europe. Also its location is very beneficial. My favorite place, the bathroom with it's old stylish shower.
Had been pining to stay at this hotel for a while, and finally had a chance this summer. The hotel lived up to the hype and then some! Unbeatable location with great views of Unter Den Linden and the Brandenburg Gate. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Lovely service and great lobby bar. Pool a bit underwhelming, but not there for that. Wasn't able to book any spa services as it was all busy. Can't wait to visit again.
