The geometric facade of this 558-room hotel may be all business, but inside it’s a true pleasure with warm service and inviting interiors. Guest rooms are bright and spacious, offering a soothing color palette and plenty to please the executive traveler, like workstations, coffee makers and complimentary newspapers. Also pleasing: the 10,000 square foot spa with its striking swimming pool and terrace overlooking gardens, plus an array of relaxation areas. See why chef Chef Thomas Kammeier’s Hugos Restaurant was awarded a Michelin star or channel Dietrich at Marlene Bar, inspired by the native Berlin chanteuse’s film “The Blue Angel.”
In the Area
Join the joggers, bikers and strollers at the nearby 16th century Tiergarten, Berlin’s answer to Central Park, before snagging one of the city’s best hot chocolates at Fassbender and Rausch, an incredibly elegant sweet spot set in the Gendarmenmarkt area. Arrange in advance for admission to the roof terrace and glass dome of the famous Reichstag, the seat of German power throughout the German Empire and Weimar Republic, then take a break to explore beautiful Pfaueninsel Palace with the free roaming peacocks on Peacock Island, reached by ferry from Wannsee Station. After dark, hit “The East End,” Berlin’s theater and nightlife district on Frederickstrasse: the Show Palace offers glitzy, over-the-top shows.
How to Get There
Marlene's bar is a great place to get together with friends. The breakfast buffet had everything you wanted and more. The cheese selection was amazing and so many variety of meats. They had the omelette station that was great. Staff was friendly and helpful
Hotel is a bit outdated but overall good, as most of Intercontinental hotels. Nice and big suite but it was on a high floor and a corner room and therefore too cold (October 2019), the heating did not quite work and there is no floor heating at all in the room. There is no kettle in the room, TV in the bathroom was not working and the total bummer: sauna costs extra! I have no idea why but i simply expect the whole Spa & gym area to be included.
This is an excellent hotel. Attended for a large scale conference and well let’s just say they know how to do major events well. It is a big hotel but was so well organised and despite the 2000+ guests it was so well put together.
