Gorgeous hotel located in an area where you are able to walk to most places (Checkpoint Charlie, the Reichstag, etc...) Breakfast buffet and a la carte menus were very good. Bar was pretty packed most every night and we really enjoyed sitting outside and having a drink before heading back to our rooms to shower and change for a night out on the town. I would have given this hotel 5 stars if it weren't for the following:
We were sitting outside and I had ordered drinks from the bar. My better half of course, being German, wanted some coffee and cake. Since there was no cake on the menu, he walked to a local bakery, got a slice, and joined me. he was told he could not eat the cake there because he has not purchased it there. Mind you, we were purchasing drinks from them. I find this completely unacceptable. He had to sit there and watch me drink while I guzzled my wine so we could rush back to the room and he can have his cake.
While I understand this is Europe and their customs and practices are different, this is a hotel in the TOURIST part of town so please, be a little more considerate and a little less ridiculous.
