We booked a family New Year holiday and stayed 3 x nights at the Radisson Blu , paying extra for the New Year party night. After a long drive and a difficult navigation around the centre of Berlin , we were greeted by the most unfriendly receptionist , who provided no Hotel information about our stay , or about the New Year's events.
The rooms are average size , nothing luxurious , very much a Business room for an individual ,not for a couple with a cot and small baby. We were charged extra for a room with a view of the cathedral , coffee machine ( no milk ) and a newspaper ( The Star !! , I asked for the Times).
Breakfast buffet was ok , lots of choices and unlimited supply of fresh coffee . Our real disappointment was the New year party , which closed at 11.30 pm and we were then expected to pay another 40 Euros each to view the fireworks from the top Floor until 2.00am . I am glad we didnt , as we were woken up at 6.30 am by a fire alarm and had to leave the Hotel , whilst the fire service arrived. No information was provided by the staff on duty and no apology .
If you want a business style Hotel with a great location , the Radisson is fine. However at 250+ Euros per night , I expected a lot more customer service and was very disappointed.
