This fabulous hotel is centrally located for all amenities, very close to the train station. We caught the train from the airport and alighted at Zoologische stop - just a 5 min walk to the hotel.
The bedrooms are very spacious and modern, only negative thing is there is no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Housekeeping will provide ironing board/iron for duration of stay if required.
We took advantage of the half price hotel breakfast at 14 euros from 28 per person each day. At the reduced price it was worth it, anymore would have been excessively priced. The staff are all friendly and helpful, English is spoken well. Across from the hotel is a supermarket, go down the escalator, you walk through an electrical section before reaching the food - handy to buy drinks etc to take back to your room rather than purchasing the overpriced hotel drinks.
Do hire a bicycle, a great way to travel around the city and see so many sights. We hired from the hotel, purely for convenience. Taxis are quite expensive, you can travel on the trains for a fraction of the price. Yellow and purple tours are excellent value, we bought a two day ticket and stayed on the bus to complete the tour and took note of the places that we wanted to see and then the following day used it as a hop on hop off to visit the sights. There is so much to see and do, four days was not enough, we plan to back for a week and most definitely will return to the Sofitel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The elegant Sofitel Berlin Kurfurstendamm is situated right in the heart of the City West area, within striking distance of the renowned Kurfurstendamm shopping quarter. A showcase for a unique fusion of art, architecture and design. The impressive 17-storey stone facade constructed from Kirchheim shell limestone is a real eyecatcher. Breathtaking views can be enjoyed from the Sofitel Berlin Kurfurstendamm right across the vibrant city of Berlin. ... more less
