I took weeks and weeks researching Berlin to find out if I wanted to go, (I was in Berlin in the late 80's and early 90's) and you know what, once again I had a non stop blast! Museums everywhere, great shopping, incredible cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs for all ages, likes and dislikes. I learned that I wanted to travel at the same time It was going to be the Berlin Carnival week, a must do in my opinion and yes it's called a carnival but don't think Rio or New Orleans. From the saturday parade and last day, sunday, street market/fair will wow your socks off, food, drink and wonderful crafts, it's an all day must do!!!
Arrival into TEG, was simple, fast and quite friendly. Airport arrivals can sometime set the beginning of a trip off on the wrong footing. Not this trip...
Fast taxi ride to the property and wham, bam, check in could not have been more easy, fun and interesting. I say interesting, because I had, like I always do, be very proactive in emailing the property with any and every question on my mind, and never more then a few hours later, I had exactly the information I wanted, needed and asked for! Now I said, "Interesting" because every person I had email contact with, came to the reception to say hello, and inform me they where at my disposal, should I need anything... There were 4 ladies behind the counter, each personable and attentive to each guest checking in and out. I arrived at 3pm sharp.
I booked a club level suite on the 7th floor, and it lived up to a "club level suite" in every way! Perfect bathroom, bath amenities, towels, tv (both bedroom and bathroom) mini bar, safe (not large enough for a "normal" size laptop) yummy sheets, lots of free bottles of water both gas and sans gas, three fast efficient elevators that need a room key to access and great amazing artwork everywhere! Oh and GREAT toilet paper... Go ahead and laugh but real travelers know what it's like to have really cheep toilet paper.
Now, the club lounge is a bit small, but I never had to wait to have a place to sit, in fact I found a lovely little alcove with a tiny table set for two (across from the windows and closest to the bathroom). I sat there every time I used the club lounge, and that was quite a bit. The hours were generous, food abundant, fresh and yummy and the staff over the top professional and friendly as well as incredibly eager to assist. And an amazing coffee robot machine thing that became my very best friend instantly, as Im a coffee junkie. I was the only, english speaking guest using the club lounge during my five night stay so I kept to myself and people watched and the club lounge staff tried so hard to understand my each and every need, and though I do not speak fluent German (or any other language fluently) I do speak enough of many, to show locals I'm trying, and in the end that's what really matters, simply trying! My every entrance to the club lounge was met with gracious hellos and smiles, by each and every staff member.
The location, perfect, (well except for the nasty smelly Casino across the street) not the hotels fault. I suggest you buy the hop on hop off buss tour ticket, (it comes in many forms) and get the lay of the land, but I did find each tour company has both old and new busses, look for the new busses and avoid the old ones! I hands down believe hop on hop off tours in any city is the best way the get your lay of the city, well unless you hire a private driver.
I really found a place in Germany I could respect and enjoy in Berlin and will without a doubt be going back and with my stay at the Hyatt Berlin, it will become my new Berlin, Germany residence to hang my hat.
Travel can be tedious, so be kind to your fellow travelers, be safe and enjoy each experience in front of you,
