With this hotel, you are staying at the very spot that every other visitor to the city is trying to get to. The streetside cafe looks directly at the Brandenburg Gate, the rooms wrap around the British Embassy on three sides, you are in the heart of everything.
The hotel is an architectural gem, with superior finishes in every public and private space. The corridors are long but with interesting courtyards and public rooms scattered around, it is part of the trip to see them. Take a swim in the basement pool to see another enjoyable piece of architectural folly.
I found the concierge busy but friendly and helpful and yes, the bellmen were overworked, taking 30 minutes to deliver the bag and I had to slow him down to show me what the room features were--never heard about that free morning coffee!
The breakfast price is indeed oppressive, very good room service a la carte is (barely) cheaper, which is odd. Cheap carry out breakfast is one block east on Wilhelmstrasse and southwest one block near the Jewish Monument along the former Wall.
The rooms are good value for the money spent, the perfect splurge.
