We stayed for five nights in this world-class 5-star hotel during our tour of Central Europe. The standards set by the Hotel Adlon are high. We judged all of our other stays against the Adlon for purposes of comparing our experiences. Hotel Adlon is the gold standard. We loved the location and setting first and foremost. Who can compete with Adlon, which has the Brandenburg Gate at its doorstep? The staff gives excellent attention and is always friendly. The rooms are First in Class. Breakfast is top-notch. Here is what I would advise new arrivals to this hotel. 1.) When coming down for breakfast, start at the front cafe. Only if that one is full do you need to then proceed to the inner courtyard cafe. The views from the front are exceptional. 2.) The views onto the street known as Unter Den Linden are the best. All other views are inner courtyard or standard city street views. Some rooms look into air shafts. 3.) When asking the front desk to switch rooms, be aware that they will barter with you. Each new upgrade will be a negotiation. They may also quote you the upgrade price, which you must remember to add to your original booking. They do not always add the two together before quoting you. We wound up in a lovely corner room overlooking the back side of the hotel and were quite happy there. 4.) The front desk is a very lively and busy place. If you have a special request, it may take two or three reminders to get what you need. We asked for an English copy of their large blue book on the hotel's history but were never able to buy a copy before we left. I don't think that the front desk received its answer in time from the store. All in all, this is an experience you should not miss. We plan to return.
