The hotel opened in 2004 and offers 303 accommodation units that come in 6 categories and occupy 11 floors: superior, executive, deluxe, big suite, suite with a view, and presidential suite. Some of the rooms are among the biggest and most expensive in the city. Prices for a night range from £340 to £6,000 and can reach an astronomical £13,000 for the suites. The hotel's interior is designed by Peter Silling (from Cologne) whereas the furniture is inspired by the German imperial style. In fact, the entire hotel is a tribute to this style: parquet floors in the entrance and wall-to-wall carpet in the rooms, ancient paintings, green bedspreads, chests and furniture made of rare wood... As for the amenities, you can't get any closer to perfection: large twin beds or single king size bed, phone, individual air conditioning, Internet connection, plasma screen TV, DVD player, minibar, safe, trouser press, umbrella, bathrobes, slippers, courtesy bottle of water, and control panel in the bedside table. You can close the curtains without getting out of bed! The bathroom is an attraction unto itself: heated floor, shower and bathtub, double sink, set of scales, and hospitality products by the prestigious Bulgari brand.
If you want the best view, request a room on the upper floors looking out over Potsdamer Platz: the Sony centre lights up in blue at night, creating a very special atmosphere.
The 2 top floors of the hotel are reserved for guests staying in the Executive suites: they include free snacks and drinks, a concierge service, and free Internet access.
