This 11-story hotel (the floors above the 11th are private apartments) might be just a decade old, but its interiors evoke 18th-century Prussia. Gold-hued royal flourishes adorn carpets, curtains and wallpapers, while marble staircases and bathrooms bring to mind the palaces of the historical German empire. The formally attired staff is efficient and warm.
Bed and Bath
Even the smallest rooms have 430 square feet of space and feature Prussian-inspired interiors – duvets topped with gold-striped bed covers, lacquered wooden desks and blue-and-cream armchairs with footstools. Huge flat-screen TVs and numerous sockets – including some to fit international plugs – add essential modern touches. Elegant white-marble bathrooms have double sinks plus robes and slippers. Make use of the free floral salts during a soak in the double-ended bathtub.
Whether dining alfresco on the Desbrosses Terrace or enjoying freshly baked scones and live piano music in the Tea Lounge, guests enjoy a variety of upscale on-site culinary options. Classic cocktails are served within the wood-paneled walls of The Curtain Club, a bar that evokes the feel of a British gentleman’s a club.
In the Area
There’s little need to hop on the U-bahn metro (directly opposite the hotel entrance) because most top sights are nearby. Take a 15-minute walk to the glass-domed Reichstag parliament building, stopping en route at the Holocaust Memorial and the 18th-century Brandenburg Gate. Afterward, stroll through the vast Tiergarten park, then back toward the hotel via the Neue Nationalgalerie to peruse its 20th- and 21st-century artworks.
How to Get There
Great place to stay, rooms are spotless and well designed, service is appropriately to the league of the hotel. Would definitely recommend this over the Adlon, if you are looking for a place to stay in that category.
Great stay in a beautiful renovated suite. Service was excellent, and we enjoyed the location of hotel to walk to various sites throughout Berlin. We used the pool and gym and found them to be perfect.
very well located; 1st class service and friendly staff; beautiful, spacious and very comfortable room; pleasant and sunny terrace with very sweet waitresses (Pauline & Edda). A perfect hotel!
Unfortunately we ordered a meal in the room and it was well below the standard of the hotel...
Love this hotel! Staff is great and there to serve your every need. Food is excellent - try their signature pear drink in the lounge. Lots of great space for meetings and options for dinning are in the close vicinity. Would highly recommend this hotel - it is truly a RITZ!
I just loved the look of this property. Located in a busy district it has good connectivity. The staff are very polite and courteous and the rooms are quite spacious. I didn’t eat here but there are quite a few restaurants around the hotel.
