The Swissotel Berlin is right next door to the Gedächniskirche in old West-Berlin and within walking distance to the KaDeWe, which everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime. It is a real 5 star hotel that even has the obligatory telephone in the bathroom. (stupid rule, but they have it.) apart from that the room is good, but you have to pay extra for using the Wifi (that works very well, btw.) - Swissotel: welcome to the 21st century, this really detracts from the overall experience! I did love that the bathroom has both a shower and a bath too. If you can get a room with a view, it must be astounding. I had a nice view of the courtyard, but granted, did not pay much.
The service is impeccable however and breakfast and meals - if you get them at the hotel - are very good. I had some problems getting the included Espresso-machine work, but it was good when I found out. I would have exchanged the machine for Wifi every second though...More
