My husband and I recently stayed 5 nights at the Sofitel while visiting Berlin for the first time. I chose the Sofitel because it appeared to be smaller and more intimate than the other name brand properties in the area and because of its location. (Info I read said that it was on one of the most beautiful squares in... More

For the price (comparatively high) I expected much more. True it's conveniently located (as are other hotels nearby). Yes it has a boutique feel. Wifi was free if I remember right. There is one (fancy) lift, the corridors are weirdly dark and with strange music. The (classic double) room was so small there was nowhere to put a suitcase and... More

Spoiler: we stay here on every visit to Berlin and receive special treatment that may not apply to all. Located in Mitte in a wonderful square near 2 U-Bahn lines, many restaurants and the Konzerthaus, this boutique hotel has a small fitness room and a nice restaurant Aigner with a cozy bar. The suite we got was huge, with enough... More

We spent 4 nights at the Sofitel in Mitte district. Excellent location, you can walk to most of the sites. Hotel is quietly elegant. The staff were charming and really helpful. Try and get rooms overlooking the front. Beautiful view. Floor 5 has balconies. Great!

A Modern hotel in a great Location for most tourist activities. A little bit of a jaunt to get to the older part of town with the buzzier restaurants and bars. That said, the restaurant attached to the Hotel was very good and busy. Rooms in hotel were good size, nicely appointed with all the expected facilities. Staff were polite... More

Best location in town. close to everything and in a pretty quiet area. Great service although the concierge is not on site after 6pm. Very helpful staff. There is a great and usually empty sauna on the 6th. floor. Breakfast very good although a little expensive. The rooms facing Gendarmenmarket are the best. Better if from the third floor up.

This is definitely one of the best hotels we stayed at. The location let's you take about no more than a 10 minute walk to almost any sight of Berlin. The room is very nice and you miss nothing.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
