Stayed two nights for a business trip (our office is just across the street). This is an area of Berlin that I had never visited, it's both a business and shopping district (some super-upscale shops down the road!!) in the old west Berlin.
At first one doesn't know what to expect because the lobby is a couple of floors up from street level, and then one arrives in a very modern yet welcoming reception.
The receptionists at this hotel have got to be some of the nicest ever. Super-welcoming yet totally appropriate for a business traveler (i.e. not overly friendly/casual). Somehow the young woman spoke English with a British accent which was nice :-)
The rooms are what I know to expect from a Swissotel (I am a regular at Zurich), super clean, ample, modern furnishings, Nespresso machine!! Their Purovel soaps and amenities are my favourite (they smell of mountain plants and herbs)
The only disappointment is I couldn't get the temperature control sorted out so it was a teeny bit on the cold side. Also, having been assigned room 836, it was quite a walk from the elevator (exactly at the opposite end).
Breakfast is excellent, in terms of quality and choice, totally spoilt from Northern European to pastries to full American. Important detail: the tea does not come in teabags, it is leaf tea!! And I can't remember the last time I had breakfast on tables fully dressed with tablecloths and linen napkins...
We also tried the bar, which is a cosy horseshoe shape and super friendly barman and barwoman.
So, at least in this area of Berlin, highly recommended.
