The Westin Grand will not be the cheapest hotel in the area but it more than makes up for the price with the location, the rooms and the service. I loved the fact that I can do my early morning runs and experience the surroundings before the pack of tourists arrive. The Museum Island with the iconic Bode Museum along the River Spree, the Gendarmenmarkt, The Brandenburg Tor, The Bundestag, the Tiergarten and many more are just within walking distance. Plus the Franzosichestrasse U-bahn station is just outside the door from where you can practically get anywhere in the city for no more than EU 5 for the entire day.... well almost. Oh and for chocolate lovers, the Ritter Sport shop is just a block away and the Fassbender & Rausch shop is also near so have fun!!
The rooms were spacious and comfortable, although the age is starting to show but they are kept clean and I loved the soft and hugging pillows. There's massive construction around the hotel and the Unter den Linden but none of the noise got inside my room. Didn't get to try the gym though but the spa was excellent as well.
Breakfast was fabulous but expensive so try to get a rate that includes it otherwise, get it outside. There are options just across the Unter den Linden that won't hurt you as much and when all else fails, there's Starbucks.
