Dmitry Petrounin Section editor

The Adlon Kempinski is a historic luxury hotel in Berlin, also considered one of the world's most beautiful hotels. At the foot of the Brandenburg Gate, this highly luxurious hotel aspires to be the worthy successor of the illustrious hotel located on the same spot and destroyed during World War 2, but it does claim a modern facet to its service and decor. Managed by the Kempinski group, this hotel is hailed by all as a gem of architecture, with perfect technique and ambiance. These assets did not leave celebrities such as Greta Garbo and Charlie Chaplin or still, many politicians, who all stayed at this hotel, unmoved. Ideal for a little break or even just a little glimpse!

    • To know

    • The Kempinski Adlon stands between the mighty Unter den Linden boulevard ("under the linden trees") and Pariser Platz - what a prestigious address and ideal location in the heart of the German capital city, a stone's throw from Friedrichstraße and almost every other luxurious place of the city. Many tourist attractions are located nearby: Brandenburg Gate (just under the windows of the hotel), the Reichstag building, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, etc. The nearest underground train station Brandenburger Tor will also enable you to get to every corner of the city.

    • The Adlon has 302 guestrooms and 80 suites spread out onto six floors. Three presidential suites (fitted with a working area and a kitchen corner) as well as many suites and rooms have a direct view of the Brandenburg Gate. The others will have to 'make do' with the Unter den Linden boulevard... But all you will need to do is look to the side a bit so as to see the lights of the Gate. All of the rooms have a surface area exceeding 38 m². Designed by renowned architect agencies, they offer all the luxury you could hope for: cherry wood furniture, wallpaper gilded with gold leaf, casement windows and decorative features specifically created for the hotel. Four colour schemes dominate the rooms: blue and beige, red and beige, green and golden brown and finally, gold. Other than the amenities expected in a hotel of these standards (minibar, safe, individual air-conditioning, plasma screen television, fax, cordless phone, etc), the Adlon provides extra facilities such as lit-up clothes rails or umbrella dryers. Decorated in black granite, light marble and wood, the bathrooms are equipped with a double washbasin, a separate shower, a bathtub, a separate toilet and a fitted multi-functional make-up table.
    • The revolving door literally opens to a human whirlwind throughout the year: the lobby is paced by wealthy guests, business people, celebrities, locals and tourists alike, all rubbing shoulders in an ever-elegant atmosphere. In the centre of the hall, under the reconstructed dome, stands the only original element, attempting to be heard through the constant hurly-burly: a pretty marble fountain given as a gift by a maharajah. A large stairway made out of white marble leads up to the first floor at the end of the lobby - a quiet little area perfect for small talk about the rain and bad weather! There is more, yet, to the common areas: other than the 500m² ballroom, the hotel also has conference halls and prestigious banquet halls, a mini shopping centre with luxury boutiques, a hairdresser's salon and a business centre (free for the first half-hour) and a spa equipped with a pool, a wave pool, a sauna, a hammam, a solarium, massage booths, a gym and a beauty parlour. Moreover, the Adlon has a 175-space underground car park at its guests' disposal. This hotel can definitely be visited like a museum!
    • It is impossible to try out all the restaurants in one day, even if you go to a different one for each meal. The Adlon actually boasts four restaurants, two bars (not counting the wine store which offers wine tasting) and three lounges open to external guests. The executive gallery houses an elegant lounge-bar, away from the lively main hall, as well as the Lobby Bar and the Restaurant Quarré, which is open from early in the morning to late at night and where you can be served a gourmet breakfast, as well as international cuisine, traditional regional dishes or more contemporary meals. A terrace comes as an extension of this already large restaurant where it is easy to lose your bearings! Now as far as the prices are concerned, they are reasonable for a hotel as prestigious as this: allow roughly ?16 for the daily special. The Lorenz Adlon, the culinary mate of the Restaurant Quarré, has a view of Pariser Platz, and what a good omen: born under a lucky Michelin star! Open from 7:00pm to 11:00pm, it has a capacity of 35 - highly privileged - guests, who can enjoy a gourmet meal for ?165. On the other side of the building, the Adlon Palais (the more recent part) holds the Italian restaurant Gabrielle and the private club China, which you enter from Behrenstrasse, behind Berlin's Academy of the Arts.
    • As it was completely destroyed just after World War 2, the first version of the Adlon at Brandenburg Gate was entirely rebuilt and opened in 1997, which is 100 years after the original opened! A mass of visitors take a look at the interior of this legendary hotel or have a meal at one of its restaurants. If you wish to visit the hotel, you will need to know that it is closed to external visitors during the weekend in favour of the guests' tranquillity.

      The original facade of this establishment, one of the German capital's finest, says a great deal about its illustrious past, and the Hôtel de Rome is in fact one of the few luxury hotels to have taken up residence in a period establishment. Having said that, it's still hard to imagine the wonders concealed behind its walls, a tasteful combination of old and contemporary, from the superb entrance hall to the wonderful spa housed in the building's former vault. This hotel comes highly recommended to all those who have the means to stay there, and if you haven't, at least try the restaurant!

      Most of the guests staying at this elegant hotel, which stands between the avenues of 'Unter den Linden' and 'Friedrichstraße', do not know about its history. The chunk of wall displayed near the front door is the first clue. Built in 1987, the Westin Grand Hotel replaced a shopping centre destroyed during the Great War. This establishment inherited its predecessor's refinement, as well as a few almost identically reconstructed former characteristics. The rest of the hotel teeters between a classical and a contemporary style. Everyone should be able to find what they are looking for here... as long as they can afford it of course!

      • Value for money 6.38
      • Location 6.31

      This four-star establishment is a member of the German hotel chain Maritim. It has a big capacity and enjoys an excellent location on Friedrichstrasse, one of the main shopping streets in Berlin. Another advantage of the Maritim proArte is its indoor swimming pool and sauna. It also offers a very useful bike hire service, giving guests the possibility of getting around the city on two wheels, which is a perfect transport solution - especially in summer! The hotel's guest rooms are comfortable, but the eclectic decor in the communal areas, especially the lobby and its variety of rather odd works of art, might not be quite what you were expecting.

      Marriott decided to open its Berlin establishment in 2004 on the most visited square in Europe. True to its tradition, the group built a 10 storey "Empire-Hotel" that places elegance and luxury in every detail. The 367 rooms come with top-of-the-range relaxation facilities. This massive establishment is perfect for guests with deep pockets. If it's a small establishment you're looking for, you won't find it here...

      Mere mention of the word "Sofitel" is a guarantee of French luxury and know-how all over the world. The Berlin Gendarmenmarkt outpost is no exception to the rule and even brings some of its own additional touches, notably in the decor. The attractive combination of its ultra-modern design and the Communist-era architecture is impressive. It is a moderate-sized establishment looked after in a superlative manner by an efficient, friendly team, and is well worth a stay if you can afford the rates!

      Within walking distance of Potsdamer Platz, the NH Berlin Mitte offers the services of a typical NH hotel. In a nice setting, the large restaurant serves the three meals of the day, as well as large buffets, especially in the morning. On the top floor there is a gym and, if you like the heat, a sauna and sun room. If you are planning on driving to the hotel, the hotel has a 70-space car park, or alternatively, you can rent a car from the car rental company located next to the hotel. The guest rooms have simple interiors that include all the necessary mod cons: flat-screen television, mini-bar, safe, etc.

      The Berlin Hilton is one of the city's luxury establishments, offering deluxe rooms with fantastic views over the square of Gendarmenmarkt and the Französischer Dom church. From the decoration of the 601 guest rooms to the furnishing in the communal areas, where a mixture of modern features and older items sets the scene, the interior decor has been closely thought out, right down to the smallest detail. In addition to the varied set of facilities, which include a swimming pool, a gym, a hair stylist and a beauty salon, the Hilton also boasts an à la carte restaurant that serves regional gourmet specialities. Breakfast, on the other hand, consists of a copious buffet of delicious dishes served every morning in a first-floor dining room.

      You might be wondering how the Lux 11, which opened in 2005, got its name. The truth is, this very popular upmarket hotel in the country's capital is, in fact, located between numbers 9 and 13 on a discreet little street in the select Mitte district of the city. This once sad little corner of former East Germany has since been taken over by a large number of art galleries, boutiques, lively bars, and even celebrities. With its minimalist white and fuchsia pink geometric decor, the hotel will undoubtedly appeal to a young and trendy clientele.

      The Berlin Movenpick hotel is much like its home town. It's a surprisingly trendy establishment. It was built in 1914 by Herr Siemens, opposite his first factory, and still shows many industrial architectural elements of that era, associated with a modern interior and noble materials such as European wallnut wood. With items taken from the ancient next-door railway station decorating each floor, the industrial interior is complete. The establishment includes 243 fully-equipped rooms (the standard ones feature a bathtub designed by Philippe Starck), a business centre with two computers connected to the Internet, a gym and a sauna. The restaurant and its large bay window which opens up in the summer are worthy of mention.
