“Good, but a little old fashioned”
Reviewed 3 October 2011

The haotel is located very conveniently in the center of former "WEST" Berlin, directly on Kurfürstendamm (a very fashinable street) and a high reputaíon. It used to be the most prominent hotel until 10 15 years ago, but now needs renovation. The braekfats is very,very good. If possible try to get room in the "new" construction area. The old floors need renovation (i.re. still no flat TV´s,). Overall it still is a 5 star Hotel and the staff is very competent and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear - more quite, try to rooms on higher level (less street noise) and in the renovate...

wasn't impressed to be honest, and i only usually want a bed in a clean room when i go away. very grand hotel, didn't use any of the facilities at all as so much to see and do in Berlin - found the staff a bit sniffy - i doubt their usual clientele is "the tattooed oik" in his hoodie and combats but i'm still a paying guest!!!
bed was comfy, room was clean although not as grand as front of house and i'm not pointing fingers unnecessarily but this was the only place i used a credit card (as the room deposit) that got cloned!!! sours my view of this place - on the upside the hotel is in a very nice location, cracking bierkellar / restaurant up the road a bit and lots of transport links and high end shopping just around the corner.

First time to Berlin taxi was unable to find the hotel i eventually spotted the hote after the taxi stopped the clock. The hotel was very nice good rooms and a great location, shops near by the Hop 0nbus just across the road and avery nice French restaurant nearby called Belmondo near the hotel check with the concierge. We really Berlin lots to see and do.

Room Tip: UPgrade from the basic room as some areold.

It was a nice sentimental coming back three years after the first time for few days starting on Septemebr 12th; room at the old part of Hotel was renovated at a modern high standard level. All Hotel parts - reception, lobby, bar, restaurants, shops etc.create an ecellent tastly mixture of modern & classic styles so nothing has been disappeared and lost from old times as you can observe at many hotel renovations all over Europe where such works are made at a very primitive way without taste and proportion. Service at all sectors - lobby, reception, room, breakfest - are excellent therefore you can feel comfortably during a whole stay & time since Mrs.Birgitt Ullerich, GM cares about visitors being deeply engaged at daily supervision of her staff and Hotel operation. The opinion about a delight restaurant and food of Hotel restaurant GRILL is exposed at another part of TripAdvisor part Restaurant .To recapitualte we're dreaming to come back in order to spend another time at KEMPINSKI BRISTOL soon.

First time trip for three nights to Berlin for my girlfriends birthday. The Kempinski is a gorgeous hotel, very plush and the hotel staff couldn't be more friendly. The concierge staff were very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was big and comfy and the bed and pillows were divine. The location is super, handy for three train stations and right across the road is a bus stop for the open bus tour. We dined in the Kempinski restaurant on our last night and the food and service was magnificent, can't rate the whole experience highly enough and I would definitely go back both to this hotel and to Berlin.

It was my second visit to Kempinski Bristol Hotel and I hope it was not last one.
I felt in love with this hotel at first sight. Yes, maybe it isn't so modern, but rooms are very nice and comfortable. Service at hotel is really great!!! Swimming pool is a big plus.
Breakfast is very delicious.
Location of the hotel is perfect, Ku'damm is my favorite place in Berlin.
Highly recommended.
