We have just returned from a short stay in Berlin (May 2013) where we stayed at the Moevenpick Hotel in Berlin. We found the hotel to be fine, the bedrooms were well set out and had all the facilities we needed. Hotel facilities generally good and the hotel was clean. The staff were helpful and all spoke excellent English (much to our embarrassment with our limited German|) A special mention must be the choice at breakfast which was excellent being both Continental and English. Hotel was in easy walking distance of tourist sites including the Brandenburg Gate (25 mins), Check Point Charlie (10 mins), Berlin Cathedral (40 mins) although on one occasion we had a taxi back to the hotel and this was a lot cheaper than London. Criticisms of the hotel would include, no free WiFi in the bedrooms only in the Reception and Restaurant areas also, the en-suite was set off in the bedroom by glass tiles which although they distorted any view from outside did not feel quite comfortable. A minor niggle, the shower over the bath had a stiff button to change from a bath to a shower (I like a shower, my wife prefers a bath) which had to be released on one occasion by the maintenance staff. Other guests had similar problems We did not have dinner in the hotel as the menu was not entirely to our liking but this was a personal preference and not a criticism, in any case a number of good restaurants only a short distance from the hotel. On the whole more than happy to recommend this hotel.

We were placed here as part of a Riviera city break long weekend in May 2013 - even though we checked out the hotel on Trip Advisor it's a good indicator but not as good as the real experience.
We couldn't really have asked for more, this hotel was comfortable with a large room, nice bathroom and excellent dining facilities if a little busy at peak times. We were never disturbed by other guests, it was quiet. The other big plus point is the location - step out of the main entrance and at 11 o'clock just 50 yards away are lifts down to the tube. If I wanted to be really picky I'd mention the pillows - I think they are feather, they offer no support and go flat - but no problem, a quick call to reception and two minutes later more pillows appeared.
One more thing for the less able amongst us - the bathroom is the standard shower over bath arrangement (the glass wall is discussed elsewhere on TA but not a problem for us) but the side of the bath must be 2 feet (600mm!) high.

This hotel was ideally situated, the room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was
extensive and set us up for the day sightseeing. The staff were friendly and helpful especially the concierge and the young man on duty in the bar area. The conversion of the old Siemens building is very sympathetic and the inclusion of artefacts in display cabinets makes it very interesting. My only criticism is I wish it had been more obvious that tea and coffee were available in the room on request. I have only given sleep quality 4 stars as I did not discover the inner curtain until the last night so found it a bit light as I like to sleep in a very dark room.

We Stayed on a long weekend in May 2013 and thought the hotel was very good value at a 4* rating. We shared a twin room with a small balcony which was just about right to open the french window for some air. The room itself was large for a city hotel with a decent sized bathroom with a shower over the bath. The staff were always on call and courteous. The only language difficulty we found was in the large resturant that also catered for Breakfast, one of the staff we encountered wasn't too well versed in bringing the coffee!! We always found a table for breakfast but on our first morning we were squeezed into the bar area as at 8.30am the place was brimming. Food was plentiful and arranged nicely.

Nice furnishings with details that worked well. The area outside was quiet and very close to the nearest S-Bahn (just across the quiet road) Potsdammer Platz was about 10 minutes walk away or 1 stop on the S-Bahn. For Potsdamer Platz go out of the hotel turn left and then left at the end of the block. Keep walking along the road and you will get to the train station at Potsdamer.

The rooms as said were large with a free safe and in our case, twin beds. Duvets and large towels. Ask at reception and they will bring you a tea tray with a small kettle, all done in the usual German efficient style - quickly and without fuss. Enough hanging/storage space but be careful of the door stop which is just in front of the wardrobe doors - near enough for you to stub your toe on (reports through experience!)

The hotel in general I found to be very quiet and I had a good nights sleep in the comfortable beds.

Also please be aware of the cycle paths of which there are on all pavements including outside the hotel. The cyclists take no prisoners and can go at a rapid click.

I agree with your reviewer John B. The hotel is well situated with a very good breakfast and lovely staff. My only problem was the little step into the bathroom which although lit at all times is easily tripped upon.
Other wise an excellent place to stay.

Wonderful hotel. Wonderful location. Wonderful city!
Just returned from long weekend break in Berlin. What a surprise! The city is amazing. The Moevenpick hotel is ideally situated just a short walk from the city in a quiet, safe area with plenty of places to eat nearby. The old Siemens building has been transformed from an industrial building into a thoroughly modern hotel. Our room was stylish and well appointed. Clean and bright with everything we needed. Bar and restaurant were good, and the breakfasts were superb, plenty of choice and freshly prepared. Staff were discreet and helpful. Thanks to all concerned for a really enjoyable stay.

Just returned from a long week end via Riviera travel in Berlin, so didn't have any say in the choice of hotel. It is however in an excellent position for sightseeing in Berlin.

The hotel is a tasteful conversion of an old Siemens factory, but done to a very high standard.
Rooms were good size and reasonably comfortable, though we were not able to get room cool enough, and the bathroom with glass block wall was a bit weird. Bar small but does the job, restaurant huge, and only busy at breakfast. Choice of food at breakfast was excellent and quality was very good as well. The staff at the hotel all speak perfect English and were very helpful and friendly. (Not many places do you find cleaners in the lift who'll engage you in conversation and ask if you've had a nice day! ... ps. they're not in the lift all the time).

We thought (as did others in the group) that the beds were pretty hard and not the most comfortable we'd come across

Turn left out of the hotel there is a S-Bahn station, Mexican and Italian restaurants that we did not use but friends in our group recommended, and Potsdamer Platz is a 10 minute walk with a huge range of places to eat (lots of hearty German food on offer) and things to do. Special mention for the little pub/bar just round the corner (past the Mexican and round the next corner) ... it does not look much ... you have to go and get the guy to serve you ... but the beer is pretty good ... and it does food (limited but ok)

I'd stay here again.
