Reviewed 21 September 2013

This hotel has a best possible location for weekend travellers. It is located near the museum island and Berlin tv tower. So, plenty to see with minimum distance.

Hotel's staff were really friendly, polite and helpful. Check in and check out were efficient and flexible. I also got lucky and received an upgrade to junior suite.

The suite was really nice and clean. Complimentary water, newspaper and coffee with Nespresso machine (which was extremely loud). Bed was very comfortable and bathroom big and clean. Free wifi was also provided and it worked well.

Breakfast was one of the best I have had for a long time. Good selection!

The lobby area is unique: a huge aquarium in the middle of atrium was unreal.

Although this was quite expensive hotel, I can consider it for private travel as well. The location is just so great.

Great location beside the Alexanderplatz. Great staff, comfortable rooms and lots of nearby restaurants.
A bit on the spendy side but why not! The hotel is situated right beside the museum island and is about 1500m from the Brandenburg gate

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the fish tank

Berlin was our final stop in our trip and we checked into Radisson Blu of course, the location is very central close to museums, the tv tower, the metro (5 min walk) and other tourists areas. We were surprised that our room was already ready, it was only about 12noon when we arrived. The reception area was wonderful, there was alot going in the reception area but they blends into each other. We got a room on the top floor (6th floor), we requested a city view and the room was simple, it needs a little lick of colour but it was spacious.

The most impressive part of the hotel is the aquarium, its something you can sit and admire for some time. Its something that brings the hotel alive, sadly we didnt have enough time to visit the inside. There is lovely bar area on the reception, lots of seats for everyone.. the music is not too loud so atmosphere for small and large groups to gather. The breakfast room was large, the selection was massive though the hot dishes could have been heated up abit as it was lukewarm. All staff were friendly, they always greet you when you walk past which is lovely.

Something that did make this place NOT a 5 star for me was - We wanted to make tea but we couldn't find any milk pots in the room so we called room service. It took them about 15-20mins (i dont know why it took so long) to bring it up and plus we got charged 2euros for a jug of milk?? WHAT?! A 5 star Radisson, i would expect to provide complimentary milk for guest especially if your also providing tea/coffee in the room aswell. We signed the check anyways but i was shocked.

Overall i did love the atmosphere of this hotel, the location was ideal but there were a few niggles here and there which are fixable i hope. I would stay again as i do want to explore the hotel and the city even more.

Excellent! First class service all round. Room spacious, clean and well appointed as you would expect from a 5 star establishment. Free internet in room very useful. Breakfast buffet one of the best I've had. The main feature of the hotel is the world's largest indoor
cylindrical aquarium in the center of the lobby and rises up 5 floors, is amazing. On checking in you have the option of choosing a room which looks onto the aquarium. The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk away from Alexanderplatz and Hackerscher Markt an ideal location for shopping, exploring the main tourist sights and transport links. The airport bus TXL, stops 50 meters away.

Very smart hotel, spotlessly clean, very efficient friendly staff.
Ideal hotel for exploring the Berliner Dom right next door Alexanderplatz and a short walk up Unter Den Linden takes you straight to the Brandenburg gate and the Reichstag.
Excellent.

If you think it is normal to find your room not done at 15.00 in the afternoon, and attent the staff about it and getting the answer "that is very normal here " with look and sound in the answer as if you are totally crazy, then pls book this hotel.
I will never go there again.
The staff was unfriendly to there guests already before, and this hotel is not very special anyhow, neither cheap.
Just go somewhere else is my advise

Dear max I
We felt very sorry to learn about your experience and that we were not able to live up your expectations. As a matter of fact we provide our guests a check in from 3 o´clock (p.m.), but there is always the possibility to enquire an Early Check-in (per availability). For every guest who arrives earlier we offer the possibility to store the luggage until the room is available and as well our guests can already use the Splash Spa. Our staff is trained to offer always a very customer oriented service and I am sorry that you were not satisfied with the attention you received. We would be more than delighted to get another opportunity to make it up to you and get your faith back.

Best regards,
The General Manager´s Office
