            • Nice area of Berlin and a very pretty square near the main street. Fantastic atmosphere at hotel and luxury vs price. Staff very usefull and friendly, checkout quick and efficient. Rooms were very comfortable, breakfast was very good.

              The design is modern, clever and bOring, the TV is pretty old, the spa is quite small.

            • I loved the location and its attractive Museums of archeology. Hotel staff were excellent and the front desk especially Nicolai was very helpful. The bed was very comfortable, breakfast was amazing and the spa was wonderful and on call even at night.

              Lots of other places on the doorstep for pastries etc, the lobby is small and tea making facilities in the room would have been ideal. Curtains are thin and let morning light in, the gym could be better.

            • The location is great, Berlin is by the way a lovely and exciting town, the hotel is of course elegant. The staff are very friendly and bathroom is nice, all marble and glass and very functional. The newton bar, one block away, is fantastic, breakfast is excellent and keeps you going for most of the day, the spa and gym is magnificent.

              Rooms are fairly spacious.
