Stayed 2 nights in a superior twin room February 2014.
The room was spacious, had a nice separate dressing area and a good bathroom. We were on the 8th floor and it was very quiet. beds were comfortable for me, though the room was too warm on the 1st night and we couldn't adjust the temperature. We opened the window on the 2nd day and that made it much better.
Breakfast was very good - excellent quality and good choice. Even champagne available. To be fair we had breakfast included (we joined "Concorde club" as we booked prior to transition to Sofitel, not sure I would have been willing to pay full rate per person for this.
Staff on front desk were very helpful, included receiving and printing email tickets for Fernsehenturm on day 2! One slight issue was I went to have a look at the gym a couple of times, but never seemed to be able to get access - didn't follow up as determination to exercise was lacking!
The only real sour note was buying a glass of wine in the bar on the 2nd night - menu said E8.50 (which i thought was a rip off but ordered anyway). I was then charged E17. It was explained to me that the menu was for 100ml, and the glass we got was 200ml. This was not only slightly underhand but total daylight robbery (especially as a 275ml bottle in the minibar was E9) and completely unacceptable to me. Shame, it slightly spoiled a nice stay.
Overall a good hotel, at a reasonable price and a great location.
