“Great hotel with a superb breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Stayed here for two night in connection with Berlin Marathon. Located in heart of Berlin on the calm Charlottenstrasse close to Friedrichstrasse and the marathon start it was a perfect base for the weekend. Fantastic service and welcome in the reception and the breakfast buffet was second to none. Very spacious rooms (well, we were two marathon runners in a suite that easily fit one extra bed) of very high standard. The spa was nice after the race, although a whirlpool or swimming pool wouldn't have hurt. I would definitely come here again.

This is a great hotel. The great service started already at check-in with swift and personal service. As a Le Club Platinum I was upgraded from a superior room to a junior suite, and what a great room with a great view that was. Comfy bed, spacious, one bathroom and one toilet, plenty of working space and nice furniture.

We celebrated our anniversary and this was noted by the hotel in a great way. Upon arriving back to the room on the first evening a bottle of sparkling wine as well as some macarons and fruit was wating for us.

This is a great hotel, and since it is Berlin you really do get a bargain price compared to other Sofitels. What are you waiting for? Book it!

We generally don't stay at designer hotels but this one was very near to the consert hall which we were going to. The hotel is quite OK and very well situated. The price was a bit high for the standard, especially the breakfast, where nothing was missing: smoked and cured salmon of the best quality, hot and cold meat etc. Everything you would expect with that price. But who is able to eat this abundant buffé in the morning?
The room was odd. The toilet seat was illuminated by a spotlight and anyone sitting there was visible from the room. Luckily we noticed that a mirror wall was possible to move so that some privacy was provided.
The reception was friendly, and they parked our car at arrival. Internet was freely available, but for a fee you could upgrade to a better connection.
The biggest complain was the late cleaning of the room. Never before lunch. One day it was not ready when we were getting back at half past two, hoping to take a nap. After asking the floor manager and the reception, the room was finally serviced.
The promised air condition did not work other than in summertime. So we had to put up with sleeping in 22-25 C though we had prefered 18-20. The windows facing the busy street were very well sound isolated, but impossible to leave open due to the traffic outside.
So in all a very nice hotel in a nice surrounding - but maybe a bit overpriced.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep with an open window, try a room facing the back.

enjoy staying at Sofitel hotels in Germany and coming from cramped rooms in London its great to have some room to spread out and get work done without feeling cramped. Good room, good size, great amenities, good fitness centre -everything you need. The only complaint was the complimentary fruit had gone off - which they fixed once we mentioned. Will stay again..

What an amazing hotel and felt like home upon my arrival to the hotel.
The service was so beyond my expectations and was so pleasantly so surprised..
My room was beautiful with an amazing view of the most beautiful square in berlin!!
Let me say it made my trip so unforgettable
period!!!
Getting ready to plan my next trip there!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite on the square side or please book one i think .....really not sure how that works.
