I chose the Steigenberger as it was located just five minutes from the KuDamn, which I knew from a previous trip to Berlin was one of the top shopping areas, and my husband loves shopping.
The service from checking in through to check out was efficient and friendly, though the concierge seemed a little frazzled at times. I was impressed when one of the waitresses on our second night addressed me by name and asked how my day had been and how was my husband? it's the little touches like this that make a trip special.
The room (standard size) was spacious with everything we needed, and a few things we didn't (dog bowls oddly, and a spare made up camp bed, maybe they knew my husband sometimes snores?) I did find the room a little dark of an evening though due to the layout of the lighting.
I would definitely choose this hotel again, due mainly to it's location. It's less than 5 minutes walk to the main shops and very close to two U-Bahn stations. Plus the hotel offered us free travel passes for the duration of our stay which saved us a lot of money, we could even use them to get to the airport on our way home.
This hotel is business oriented and aimed at the corporate sector, but still is a great base for exploring the city More
