              Check in took ages, about 15 min wait as the one staff on duty had her hands full. Very strange at 5 PM Saturday, where one would expect travelers to arrive.

              A lovely hotel with excellent staff with guaranteed sofitel quality. The room was quite small however that would be my only slightly negative point about my stay. The room was very quiet and comfortable with lovely furnishings, and I love the L'occitane line of products in the bathroom and around the hotel. Great location too.

              Great location superb staff and the rooms were large and very comfortable nothing was to much trouble for the for the staff.

              The rooms were to hot hot and we had no control over the tempreture we had to sleep with the windows open every night

              Excellent central location; convenient for the gendarmenmarkt Christmas Market which is directly opposite the Hotel. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful inside the Hotel. Friendly efficient staff.

              The rooms have an interconnecting window between the bedroom and bathroom - the window looks directly onto the toilet! Whoever designed this aspect is just plain weird! Breakfast is wonderfully prepared and presented but the €28 per person charge is outrageous - surely if they charged less more people would take breakfast!

              Great Location, rooms very quiet, nespresso machine in room, friendly staff - perfect english, would highly recommend

              Breakfast priced too expensively at €28/per head - I'm sure if they reduced the price to €20 there would be more takers - however there are plenty of cafes by the nearby Brandenburg gate that serve breakfast

              There was chocolate cake in my room when I arrived and a Nespresso machine for amazing coffee! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was large and the shower was fantastic. I was only there for 1 night and then I had arranged to stay at another hotel (which whilst more expensive is nowhere near as nice) and I was sorry I had not booked this hotel for my entire stay.

              As usual, the staff is extremly well trained (as in all Sofitel Hotels). The location of the hotel is great.

              A great place to stay for a first-time visit to Berlin. Fantastic views of the locale from upper rooms.

              I found using the shower difficult at first. Being from the southern hemisphere and not acquainted with European technology made for an early morning challenge. Mention of the details for use in the hotel information kit would have been helpful.
