“Good hotel !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I was in the Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin for 2 days & nights recently. The hotel is in a gorgeous locality overlooking the most beautiful square in Berlin, & all the top sights: Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden, Checkpoint Charlie, Reichstag, Museumsinsel etc are literally at most a 10-15 minute walk away - if you walk briskly, like I like to do! The service was really friendly, the hotel is spotless and the facilities (including free internet access) are excellent.

The only negative was that the overall lighting in the hotel was very dark and seemed a bit spooky at times.

It is the second time that my wife and I stay in this place. We like it very much because the attention is very personalized and the rooms are great. Last time we spent half of our stay at the Adlon and half here and now we decided to come back to the Sofitel instead of the Adlon, because it is easier to handle and it is cozier. A drawback is that almost never is easy to get a rate in which breakfast is included and if you pay for it is really expensive for a breakfast. Nontheless we walked to Friederichstrasse and had our breakfasts in Leysieffer, which is great and elegant.
Gendarmenmarket platz is very nice and you can walk to several points of interest. Completely recommendable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view to the Gendarmenmarkt platz.

Never stayed in a Sofitel and was impressed. Room was very clean and comfortable, although slighty expensive the Hotel is after all a 5 star. Hotel is very well located in the eastern side of Berlin with Check Point Charlie, Brandenburg Gate and the Reistag within Walking distance. The hotel has many resturants also within close walking distance. If flying into Tegel airport take a bus to Unter Den Linden and get off around Charlottenstrabe its then a 5 mins walk. The only downside was the Hotel breakfast as in my opinion is very expensive and even though i was on a business trip, i still decided to eat at one of the many coffee shops located close by. Berlin is a great city and the Sofitel is a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: Book via trip advisor!

Very nice hotel located in the heart of Berlin. Walking distance to Brandenburg Gate and therefore an ideal starting point for a city discovery. Service is very good, rooms comfortable and cosy just the tv did not work too well.

We booked the Sofitel for a long weekend whilst visiting our son in Berlin. We have stayed in Sofitels before and have had a good experience. On arrival we were checked in swiftly and had a luxury room on the 5th floor overlooking the church opposite. We had a small balcony where we could stand and take in the views. The room was an excellent size with a very comfy 7ft bed, the bathroom was well equipped with hair dryer, robes & slippers only downside no bath. Unfortunately had someone in the next room playing loud music until the early hours which was annoying so soundproofing wasn't so good! Breakfast was very good although on the expensive staff, the staff were always very attentive. The reception extremely helpful booking a nice restaurant for us, they were very helpful when my camera went missing at the Jewish museum. The situation was superb close to all attractions also good shopping and restaurants nearby.
A good stay in Berlin except for camera being taken, will definitely return to the Sofitel.

Room Tip: If affordable book the luxury room, very spacious and good views
