“Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin from Glasgow wanderer....”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

Spouse & I stayed here for a long weekend. It's in an incomparable location in Berlin, right at the centre of things. The (very upmarket) Christmas markets are across the road in the middle of the square on which the hotel is situated -- wonderful! Service, style, informality all first-class. Breakfasts are really superb, and very casual. The only thing is there is not much space to sit around the lobby on the ground floor, but that is a mere detail. All in all, fab......

We arrived ar the hotel at the checkin was very quick and the checkin staff were very friendly, they asked us if we needed to know anything about where to go and even handed us a map of Berlin which was great :-)

We started in room 203 and the room was fab, very mondern and stylish and the bed was so comfy :-) we had a mini bar and free Internet (make sure u get the free code at checkin) the room also came with a fab view, I couldn't fault the room at all was fab :-)

We had a few drinks In resturant/bar and we had cocktails which were great you could tell the guy was experienced, we didn't eat though but the prices for a main meal was about 20 euros which about right for a meal in Berlin at nice resturant. We didn't have breakfast through as we always went to Starbucks as the food was great and good priced too :-)

The location was great too 2 mins from the main shopping street and 5-10mins walk to the Berlin gate and 5 mins to starbucks.

To sum the hotel up I would defo stay here again but I would try somewhere else next time as it didn't pop out at me as some hotels have. Great hotel though

This Sofitel is small enough to keep a personal feel to it and situated in a fantastic part of town. For Christmas markets they are across the street, there are plenty of restaurants and a food hall nearby as well as shops if you want to explore. The hop on hop off bus is close to the hotel one full loop takes about 2 hours but the main attractions are within walking distance if you like to walk or a short trip on the U-Bahn. Staff are friendly and very helpful, nothing is too much to ask and the rooms were well appointed. We had a junior suite overlooking the Gendarmenmarkt which was very relaxing with a lovely view at night and there are coffee facilities (nespresso) in the room. Taxi from Tegel airport took about 20-30 mins and cost 20 euro. I would most definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Junior suite 401 had a lovely view over the Gendarmenmarkt

Globally excellent. Helpful and smiling staff. Great breakfast. Convenient location. Nice interior design.
One minus point: room only accessible from 3 pm.
Tip 1: you should provide city bicycles for the guests.
Tip 2: do not ask 200 characters for this review!

Really lovely, peaceful hotel. Room not very big, but well organised. Ideal situation, in the very center, next to to amazingly beautiful Gendarmenmarkt. The shopping street Friedrichstrasse is around the corner. Bus stop for the city tour very close. Friendly personnel. We we lucky to have view directly to Gerdarmenmarkt and the magnificent concert house. Lovely breakfast, very good quality restaurant (traditional food with Austrian influence). Even if light fine dining is our favouraite, we tried the restaurant once, and liked it very much. (We also tried VAU, one Michelin star restaurant, which is very close, and highly recommend. The only thing we did not appreciate was the bed. In a luxury hotel one should not have anything to complain about the comfortableness of one's bed.

Fabulous. Staff helpful and hotel lovely. Our room had a wonderful view over the buildings of the Gendarmenmarkt.
Bathroom wacky but plush (the doors!)
Only minor gripe was the Tv. Could not get the remote to work properly.

A hotel that works really well and in a great central location. All the reception staff were friendly and helpful and knew everything you would want from them. The room was well designed and bed very comfy. The bathroom had a really great rain shower. We once called reception near midnight for something and it arrived within minutes; very impressive. Also had curtains that actually kept out daylight which might seem small but have stayed in hotels that are supposedly grand where the curtains don't work. Free wi-fi as well. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and again great service. Highly recommended hotel.
