A big 5 star corporate style hotel approximately 15/20 minute walk from the metro station (Zoo). Located in what was the old ‘West’ Berlin in a quiet area but well served by public transport, the hotel is some distance from the main tourist sights and in the evening there is not a lot nearby in terms of entertainment. Bus stop and taxi stand right outside the hotel.
Rooms are modern, spacious and comfortable with the usual amenities and a well- stocked bathroom/shower area. All towels are provided and changed on a daily basis. Tea / coffee making facilities. There is a minibar but items were a little on the expensive side. The wardrobe was situated in the adjoining bathroom, plenty of hanging space and drawers.
The hotel room rate included free use of the pool and gym but the spa and sauna were payable locally (15 euros each per day). Note: In Deutschland, spa and saunas are naked affairs and this can be a shock to us reserved Brits! Nice touch – a separate lift to the pool/spa area, which is lovely when you are dressed in the ‘one size, fits all’ white bathrobe and slippers!
Breakfast is plentiful if not massive, well presented and very good, catering for all tastes and offers cold meats, cereals, hot breakfast items, fruit, pastries etc. Breakfast was taken in different areas of the hotel due to ‘corporate breakfast’ functions taking place at the same time.
All staff are helpful, polite and courteous and overall the hotel offers good value for money – we loved it but would prefer to be more central to the main attractions if visiting again as choice of restaurants and evening entertainment around the hotel is limited. The hotel bar, Marlene’s, is very nice but drinks are very expensive.
