If you choose to stay in the western part of Berlin, it's hard to find a better place. The hotel is luxurious in a modern way (not the stuffy old fashioned grand hotel style; this is, however, a question of taste, so to other people the hotel might be a bit too modern). This time we had a standard room in the 9th floor with a lovely view over the city. No noise disturbed us, even when Germany won one of the football semifinals. (Oh, and I love the spacey bathrooms with separate showers and toilets and a bathtubs, not to talk about the green marble floors)
The service was very good, but not 100% excellent. The reason why it was not excellent was a problem of communication: we lengthened our stay with one day, which however was not put in the reservation system. Hence our keys stopped to work (the situation was, however, taken care professionally). Also, when checking out, everything went smoothly, but the young gentleman was veery serious.
What was good, was the check in (very friendly and fast), and what impressed me, the concierge recognized me and welcomed back (and he did not know the room number etc., where he could have gotten the information). Also the doormen were helpful, as we deposited our luggage and later some shopping bags before taking off.
One minor problem is the lobby: there is a bar and a lounge area, but it is not very inviting. It's not the kind of place where you sit and observe other people or read a news paper. But how to improve it?? Perhaps the extreme modernity might need some softening here.
Do also look for campaigns and other special prices: for it's quality you get good prices!
