I stayed here with my family during a brief visit to Berlin. My son is very interested in the local history and there are some wonderful places to visit. The underground tours are fantastic as is the Berlin Wall Memorial.
We stayed in a suite with a connecting room. The staff was extremely helpful making sure that they arranged for our family to stay together. The only major hiccup was that the suite had an overpowering smell from someone who must have smoked heavily. The staff went out of their way to get rid of the smell. I think they went into the room at least three or four time during out visit. They also offered us other rooms, but didn't have anything quite as nice so we ended up dealing with the smell. We did appreciate their efforts however.
Obama was scheduled to arrive the day we were scheduled to leave. The staff made a point of informing us about the security measures they would have to impose, and provided us with options to minimize the impact. We were thrilled to depart before the Obamas arrived. By that point the hotel was crawling with security people.
The concierge was extremely helpful and recommended a restaurant we never would have considered and helped us arrange for a bit of site seeing.
The exercise room is excellent and opened 24 hours.
I have stayed at the Ritz Berlin on business trips a few times. At this point I don't look elsewhere.
Berlin is a wonderful city that is definitely worth visiting. It is very touristy around the hotel. Therefore if you want to see the more traditional side of Berlin I recommend heading away from the hotel.
