My wife and I stayed for a long weekend at the Hilton Berlin in August 2009. Managed to get quality room for £100 per night (via Thomas Cook) which was amazing considering the World Athletics Championships were taking place at the time.
The hotel was of the standard you would expect of The Hilton - expansive and impressive foyer with helpful multilingual staff. The room was fine, plenty of space, clean, and a shower that did not need Stephen Hawking to understand the heating controls. The only bizarre thing is that you have to use your room key to activate the lift and it seems a bit temperamental and totally impractical if the lift is full. They need to scrap this idea, which I presume is rooted in the need for security. The bar and restaurant were fine, with hot roasted peanuts served with every drink. Nice touch.
We arrived before lunch but rooms were available. The location is excellent, on a relatively quiet street but only a short walk from main attractions and the entrance to the underground trains is right outside the hotel. Needless to say the German trains are punctual and clean.
As for Berlin, superb city, plenty of recent history and the added bonus of the World Athletics Chamionships, with prime viewing for the men's and ladies' marathons. Unlike some Latin countries, no thieving ******** trying to get your wallet / purse (at least not obvious ones, and no reports of any problems from fellow guests). The beer was exquisite but there was a shortage of restaurants / bars in the city centre open on the Sunday.
Superb hotel, quality stay, would go again.
