“Unbelievable, opulent, old-world”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Luckily, we had a lot of spare frequent flyer points lying around, unused, or we couldn't have afforded this hotel. It is very expensive but worth it in either points or Euros. Service is excellent. It is in a great location in the former East Berlin with a view of the Brandenburg Gate and in the same block and the French, British and American embassies. The room was impeccable, wood built ins, two sets of double-glazed windows so it was quiet and dark at night.

I might add that everything is expensive; the food, etc. But there are plenty of places to go in Berlin when you're there so you don't have to eat in the hotel unless you want to.

I stayed at the Adlon for 2 nights during a conference. I was given a room in the "residence" part of the hotel on the 3rd floor. The room was fully up to the standard of a 5 start hotel (spacious, clean, amenities provided and re-filled every day). Breakfast (buffet and eggs can be ordered a la carte) was nice with a good selection of different spreads, meats, breads etc.

Service was very good and the fact that wifi is included free of charge is a big bonus. I like that the Adlon is not following the trend of other 5 star hotels and charging ridiculous amounts of money for a service one can get for free in many hostels.

Location is outstanding: just in front of the Brandenburg Gate and many major sights are walkable: Reichstag, Bundeskanzleramt, Potsdamer Platz etc.

I can highly recommend this hotel and it is the service and the location that makes it a very special place.

Room Tip: ask for the residence part of the hotel. Rooms here seemed a bit more modern. I was on level 3.

Had a perfect 3-night stay at luxurious Adlon Kempinski. Beautifully located next to Brandenburger Tor and within walking distance to most tourist attraction (do try renting a bike though!). Great rooms, very spacious with separate walk-in closet. Service is absolutely a five star service, probably the best hotel service I have ever experienced. Price level is actually very reasonable and you get great value for money, especially compared to other European cities. Would definitely recommend staying here and will for sure return!

A traditional and classy hotel, situated in the heart of Berlin. Incredible service - top to bottom, always thinking of every little thing. Fresh coffee and snacks were waiting for us in the lobby when we left at 5 am for an early flight.
Excellent breakfast. Loved the iPad in the rooms with which you could order room service.

My wife and I stayed at The Adlon for three nights. We arrived shortly after 3:00 PM and our deluxe room was not ready but we were told to please wait in the lobby bar for 30 minutes and they would upgrade us to a better room. Within five minutes, the hotel manager introduced himself and apologized for our room not being ready at check in time and said he had a junior suite with a view of The Brandenburg Gate available immediately and had already sent our luggage to that room. We were taken to the room by a front desk person and were shown how everything worked. The room and it's view were outstanding.
Our reservation included daily breakfast which we took in the dining room. It was a choice of a wonderful continental or order off the menu or a combination of both. The lobby bar is a great place for a pre dinner cocktail or a light meal. It is a rather large area but the way it is set up, you don't feel the size as a problem.
The service from all the hotel personnel we came in contact with was very professional and what you would expect from a hotel of this caliper.
The only drawback was at checkout. They do not have a video checkout system so at peak times the queue can be a bit long. That being said, we would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend the Adlon to family and friends.

It's location (just beside the Brandenburg gate) it's service, terraces, spacious rooms, spa
, breakfast makes the Adlon Kempinski the number one choice of hotel in Berlin.
I stay in many others nice hotels in Berlin before, but the Adlon beat them all.

We throughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Hotel Adlon. Our room was very nicely decorated with a well appointed bathroom. There is certainly a glamorous feel to the place and the foyer exudes luxury. One Italian football team was staying in house prior to the cup final, their photo shoot certainly added a bit of excitement. Great location, right beside the Brandenburg Gate and walking distance to many other attractions. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. I'd have no hesitation in returning on my next trip to Berlin and have highly recommended to family and friends.

Room Tip: Room 525 overlooked the courtyard so it was nice and quiet and was perfect for our needs.
