From the moment we arrived and were engaged in conversation by the receptionist - who specialised in Irish history and Michael Collins in particular - I knew we were in for something special. He didn't disappoint us and neither did the hotel. We were given an upgrade to a deluxe room which overlooked the courtyard. We were personally shown to the room and then shown the amenities of the hotel. For myself, the pool and the sauna was perfect. Almost every morning I would swim and take the benefit of the sauna and the jacuzzi. We sampled our first night's meal in the Quarré restaurant. It was good, though we thought the service was a little bit inattentive. But the food was good and the wine was excellent. Later in the week we ate in the lobby bar and and were delighted with the service and the menu options.
The vicinity of the hotel to the Brandenburg gate and, with a short walk, to the river Spree was a major plus for us. Also the main shopping street, Friedrickstrasse, was just ten minutes away.
All in all, the hotel was excellent and a particular mention must be made of the concierge service. When I thought I lost my camera they went to great trouble to help me out and could not have done more. The concierge also picked out nice restaurants in Berlin, not too far from the hotel, which we enjoyed. Top marks for an enjoyable stay.
