“Great hotel ideally located”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My husband and i just returned from a few days in Berlin. The hotel was wonderful. The breakfast was nice, the room exceptionally clean and well kept. But what really made this hotel wonderful was how attentive the staff was. They really turn this hotel in the most cosy place to stay and they realy make you feel like home. All these small touches made our stay truly memorable. I definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel was excellent, from the service that the staff provided to the food in the restaurant.

We upgraded to a 'city view' room which had big glass doors which overlooked the river and the Berlin Dom (cathedral). The doors opened too so you could get some fresh air into your room. If you are a tea drinker (we are!) then take your own teabags; we had a fancy coffee machine in our room which gave us hot water, but no teabags were provided.

The hotel is right next to Museum Island and an easy 5-10 minute walk from the Alexanderplatz station. From Alexanderplatz you can get a train direct to Schoenefeld airport which only takes 25 minutes.

Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of cooked food (the usual sausages, bacon, mushrooms, etc.) and cereals, yoghurt, pastries, juices and smoothie and lovely breads. We also ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was excellent. It was a little pricey but definitely worth it. I'd reccommend getting a Berlin Welcomecard as this gave us quite a significant discount off the bill.

Overall a really good hotel!

This was our first time in Berlin and I chose the Radisson Blu based on the reviews that I've read on Tripadvisor. I'm really glad I did so, since our stay was perfect! We arrived by car which is no problem since there is an underground public parking right underneath the hotel. From the underground parking lot (which costs €18/day), there is an elevator leading directly into the lobby of the hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly staff, making us feel comfortable and welcome from the first moment. We tried our best to speak German, but in essence this wasn't necessairy since the staff spoke perfectly English as well. The choise was offered on which floor our room should be located. We chose the top floor which is an absolute recommendation since, when booking a Business Room, you get an awesome view over the Berlin Dom (later more about this). When travelling as a couple, don't forget the following!!: The layout of the rooms is by default two single beds, but you can ask the staff at check-in to get one king-size bed, without extra cost and if available. So don't forget!

As smooth as check-in went, so continued the experience throughout the rest of our stay. The rooms were clean and provided with everything we needed: towels, bathrobes, slippers, bottle of water, chocolates, etc. When we were relaxing in our room for half an hour (since we had a long drive coming to Berlin from Belgium), housekeeping knocked on the door to ask if everything was as we liked, and if we needed anything else. What a service! We asked for one more large towel since only one was provided in the bathroom, and it was given to us without hassle.

The lounge, with the massive aquarium in the middle, is absolutely stunning. Very relaxing atmosphere and again very friendly staff. The only downside is the high price of the drinks (€4,5 for a coke, €12 for a rather small cocktail). It might be better to go out for a drink. If you want to go to the center or someplace else, and you want to take public transport, there is a tram that stops nearby the hotel. The only downside is that the nearest U-bahn (underground) station is quite a walk from the hotel (approx 1,2km) on the Alexanderplatz. But there are always taxi's available in front of the hotel for an affordable price if necessairy.

The wellness in the hotel was the only little downside during our stay. The wellness is presented as being open until 22h, but when we arrived there at 21:20, the staffmember told us that we needed to leave the wellness at 21:40.. So we were only able to take a swim for about 20 minutes before we were sent out. A shame, since a dive in the pool was a pleasure after a long day of walking and exploring Berlin.

And last but not least, breakfast buffet. If you have the choice, take it. It's well worth the price. Everything can be found, from croissants, over typical english breakfast with sausages and mushrooms to fresh baked omelettes to suite your taste. A must do when staying in the Radisson Blu Berlin!

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room Ask for a king size bed when traveling as a couple

Good location excellent service. Lobby worth seeing. Small mishap with next lift "burning" but as total strong recommendation. For meetings I took lift 5 stories down and next lift 7 stories up. Annoying if you wanted just to pick something from your room

Very good stay. Great location, close the main attractions. Friendly service and delicious breakfast with plenty of choice. The spa is worth a visit although not very big. There are a couple of nice restaurants next to it (The Italian is really good) My room was very comfortable overlooking the Cathedral.

Stayed here for business. Checked in extremely early - 9:00 AM on a Sunday. They still game me a room. You normally have a choice of internal facing (aquarium facing) or external facing. Aquarium wasn't available at the time of my check in which was fine considering how early it was.

The aquarium is awesome. Really impressive. There is a scuba diver in there daily, cleaning the walls. Pretty cool.

I found the staff very pleasant and helpful, with a few exceptions. Breakfast was good - I don't think it was all that awesome like other reviews indicated, but I liked it. Drinks are expensive. Ate at Heat, the restaurant off the lobby, and the food was good - above average but not incredible. Had pizza - wood stove oven cooked and good.

I'd stay here again. Pleasant stay. Rooms were clean, small, and sufficient. Nothing great but certainly above average considering other hotels I've stayed in while in Europe. Bathroom drain was slow which was annoying. Not the end of the world though.

Also worked out in their gym. Small pool and good gym. Above average.

Aquarium is impressive and the biggest reason to stay here.
