Fantastic boutique hotel, central to everything you would want to see and do in Berlin.
The hotel is prefectly styled, elegant, relaxing and cosy all in one, particularly nice in the winter. The rooms were comfortable and warm but the bathroom design might not be to everyones taste with the unusual doors, although it is very stylish and was always immaculately cleaned.
A special mention to the staff who were not only polite but very helpful and extrremly friendly and I have to mention especially funny. A special mention to the manager who could not have helped us more especially with fitting us in to the resturaunt beside the hotel. The food is so good I would highly recommend having dinner there.

Berlin is a very, very competitive market for hotels, and many of them have unique selling points, ranging from location to style, personalised service or other values. The Sofitel at Gendarmenmarkt has it all, and it continues to be my favourite place to stay in Berlin, and I did stay at quite a few others. The hotel is a former socialist building, which has been completely redesigned and turned into a design temple in the best possible way. Cool entrance and lifts, spectacular gym (in the attic) and unparalleled restaurants (the breakfast room!) and event rooms (the Delphinum is one or Berlin’s best event halls).

The rooms are not particularly big, but most have a phenomenal view on the square, and some on the upper floors have small balconies. Cool bathrooms with windows to the actual room, exceptional lighting and cosy beds make your stay extraordinarily enjoyable. When I got to my room, I found a small sweet dish (not just some fruit) on the table – a mousse au chocolat – along with a partly hand-written note. This has been one of the most positive surprises during all my many travels and stays. Also, the check-in and check-out staff was so competent and friendly that it even exceeded the five star expectation.

If you like design and service, try my favourite hotel – I will always recommend it and go back.

Every interaction with staff at this hotel has been great. Maybe it's just me, but everyone seems unusually cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was also above average, with a fairly wide selection and a gracious dining room.

My room on the 5th floor has a terrific view of the church across the street (and even a tiny little balcony). The room isn't that large, but perfectly comfortable. Evidently, the Christmas market in the square outside is one of the nicer ones in Berlin. It was bustling and crowded last night with many people enjoying "gluhwein" a warm spiced wine.

The location seems to be a good one if you're doing a little tourism. I walked to the Brandenburg gate and the Reichstag in about 10 min.

Internet service is extra (grrr), but at least it's relatively reasonable. I think it was 9 Euro for a day. At the Zurich Hilton the night before, they wanted something like 25 euro for a day. Robbery!

In any case, I'd recommend this Sofitel. It was much cheaper than the nearby Westin, and a perfectly nice place to stay.
