Amy Adejokun Section editor

It's not easy to pronounce the name of this four-star establishment, located at the intersection of three trendy districts of the German capital: Mitte, Friedrichshain and Friedrichstadt. However, you'll quickly feel at ease in this establishment that is both classical and modern. Its reasonable size (144 rooms), conference rooms and leisure facilities make it an ideal place for both holidays and business trips. The hotel's management describes the establishment's style as "timeless and classical".

    Location 5.74 /10

    A short walk to Markisches Museum station and wedged between the three most popular neighbourhoods of the German capital (Mitte, Friedrichshain and Friedrichstadt), the Grosser Kurfürst Hotel benefits from being located in a calm street, while also enjoying the many activities on offer in the area or within a ten-minute radius by public transport: monuments to discover, museums to visit, walks, restaurants, bars, shopping, etc.

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    The Grosser Kurfürst has 144 rooms and is a perfectly decent, modestly-sized establishment. We won't go through the 11 categories of accommodation on offer... Suffice it to say that the hotel offers 122 rooms and 22 apartments with a kitchenette. Ideal for families. The decoration of the rooms similar to that of the rest of the establishment; traditional, and sometimes even quaint (wall-to-wall carpet, wooden furniture, armchairs and curtains with flower patterns) but sometimes boasting more modern elements, such as the paintings and the plasma-screen TVs that are currently being installed. The rest of the amenities reflect the effort that has been made to satisfy the clientele: phone, large storage units, safe, trouser press, mini-bar with kettle and tea/coffee making facilities, and central air-conditioning. The bathroom includes a soap dispenser, a shower or a bathtub, and a hair-dryer. The lighting isn't very flattering, however!

    Overview 7.60 /10

    The mix of modern and traditional at the Grosser Kurfürst can be seen before even entering the hotel; from its facade. The lobby confirms this first impression. Located under a patio, it displays traditional elements (marble floor and ceiling, glass tables, carpet) in a modern setting (orange corridor walls, general architecture, original armchairs). A huge statue adds to the originality of the surroundings: a 17th Century lord sitting on a horse... hanging from one of the walls! Two lifts enable access to the hotel's seven floors. The hotel also includes four conference rooms (100 sq-meters in total), and a small well-being area equipped with a spacious fitness centre (six machines) and another small well-being area, described as a "spa" by the management. However, it is a bit of an exaggeration to use the word "spa" to describe a cold water pool, a sauna, Turkish baths, a solarium and a few deck-chairs. A swimming pool and/or some treatment rooms would have been a welcome addition...

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    As far as the cuisine is concerned, guests of the Grosser Kurfürst have two choices: a snack at the lobby bar, from 6:00 pm to 1:00 am (drinks are served all day though), or a more elaborate dish at the a la carte restaurant. It is open from Monday to Saturday, from 6:00 pm to 11:30 pm, and offers a selection of reasonably-priced traditional dishes: from 5 euros for soup to 15 euros for fish. The establishment also offers a selection of salad and meat. As for the decor, this is pretty much the same as in the rest of the hotel! The style is once again classical (parquet floor, marble tables) with some modern touches: copies of Van Gogh and Picasso paintings, orange chairs... The terrace (with a view of the river) enables the 65-seat capacity to be increased to 100. Breakfast is served in a smaller separate room that looks out onto the indoor patio.

    To know

    Located in a neighbourhood which was once scene of much political turmoil, the Grosser Kurfürst had a long history as a hotel before becoming part of the Derrag group in September 1998. The German group now owns another 14 establishments throughout the country. The hotel frequently undergoes renovation work. The next phase will see the replacement of the TV sets and the wall-to-wall carpet. The hotel offers guests either the half board or bed and breakfast formula.

      The Henriette is located opposite the Grosser Kurfürst hotel, but despite both being part of the Derag Group, these hotels have little in common with each other. This 54-room boutique-hotel is classical in style, down to the smallest detail. Although the leisure facilities are nonexistent, guests of the hotel can use the well-being centre of the neighbouring establishment. This hotel is best-suited to couples without children.

      The Novotel Berlin Mitte is a good hotel for families, with, among other things, communicating rooms, a sofa bed in most rooms, a special children's menu, and a Wii game console provided in the entrance hall. This is the reason why the establishment is often fully-booked during the school holidays, long weekends, and during the month of December, which is the Christmas market period. It's located half-way between Postdamer and Alexanderplatz, two of Berlin's liveliest areas, both of which can be reached easily thanks to the nearby Spittelmarkt metro station. Furthermore, it includes a gym, a sauna and a huge car park with 100 spaces. The hotel belongs to the Accor French hotel chain.

      Much like many of its sister establishments, the Radisson Blu, which opened in 2004, quickly identified the potential of this Berlin neighbourhood situated in former East Germany. The renown of the group and the original architectural style took care of the rest, turning it into one of the capital's most famous hotels. Unlike the cold and charmless design favoured by other hotel groups, this establishment has created a fun atmosphere, in particular thanks to its massive aquarium in the middle of the lobby. This hotel caters to all: couples, families, and lone travellers of all ages!

      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.

      The aptly named Alexander Plaza is a boutique hotel with 94-guestrooms housed in a late 19th century building, just a stone's throw from Alexanderplatz. Renovated in 2005, the Alexander Plaza has managed to retain some original elements, while adapting to the requirements of today's hospitality business. The result is a hotel which is modern without showing off, unlike other contemporary hotels of Berlin, and warm to its guests...

      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!

      Having opened in 1970, the Park Inn obviously had a hunch before anyone else of the potential of this district in former East Germany. However, in spite of several renovations, the Park Inn's various facilities are not all equal. In terms of decoration, for example, some of the rooms display a modern decor while some others have not aged well, such as the breakfast room. The size of the hotel (1,020 guest rooms) will scare more than one away, but it will definitely make bungee jumpers happy: The hotel organises maiden jumps from the 39th floor! Therefore, we recommend this hotel to people who are not afraid of heights or anyone not horrified by large establishments.

      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!

      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!

      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!

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.
