Stayed here in June for 5 nights and wow!

From the minute we walked in the whole hotel had a feeling of quality about it.

The massive fish tank in the reception area takes your breath away. We had a business room with a balcony looking out directly at the Berliner Dom, the room was to a very high standard, clean and comfortable.

The breakfast buffet was extensive, well stock and of good quality.

If we had one criticism it was that the complimentary wi-fi signal in the room was very weak the further from the door you got.

All the staff were friendly and attentive and we would definitely stay there again.

The first thing you notice when you enter at this hotel is the Water Tank with the perfect lighting. There is a really nice and cheap restaurant at the alley behind the hotel (offering asian cuisine). The hotel is next to the Berliner Dom (and these are the rooms you want) and next to Alexanderplatz as well. We had a room overlooking Alexanderplatz and even if the street was busy, there was no noise. Rooms were clean but average size, the bathroom was the best part of the room. We also had a small balcony. The hotel has 3 nice sauna rooms at the lower level (a must) but the pool was a dissapointment.
The best thing of the hotel is the breakfast served by the river with the best view of the Berliner Dom. SO ROMANTIC!!!

Room Tip: Do not go for the rooms at the inside of the hotel even if they are cheaper.

We have just returned from a three night break at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin. We had an early flight out and arrived at the hotel around 11am. The reception area when you first check in provides an awesome first impression. The massive fish tank above reception is breathtaking. Check in was stated as being 3pm but to our surprise we were allocated our room. The choice of inward (fish tank) or outward rooms were offered and we chose the former.
The rooms were beautiful and clean with all the amenities that we required during our stay. The room is modern and contemporary in design and that is in keeping with the hotels design theme. The view from the room into the fish tank is very different to anything we had seen before and it was really nice to sit and watch the many fish chase each other around the tank.
The bar area is nicely laid out and the staff are very attentive.
The hotel is situated amongst many of Berlin's tourist attractions. Museum island, TV tower, The river, and boat trip stops. The Berlin dungeon and Sealife centre, to name a few. The hop on hop off tourist buses stop right outside the hotel. We found the hotel a great base to explore from.
We ate out for breakfast and found many restaurants providing a full English for less than €10 each all less than 5 mins walk away.
We really enjoyed meals and evenings out drinking in the Hackescher Markt area of the city and also in the bars and restaurants right down both sides of the hotel.
We loved our stay and if you choose this hotel, hopefully you will too. Enjoy!

Stayed: June 2014

This hotel is excellent in every respect, rooms, location, staff, cleanliness. Having chosen this hotel for the unique view of the aquarium in the central atrium, we were delighted to have a room looking on to it. Having spent 5 days at the hotel, we never tired of looking at it. The rooms are very quiet, and have blackout curtains, so you will not be disturbed by noise from the central bar area, even with a crowd of people watching the world cup, we weren't disturbed.The location of the hotel is ideal for the first time visitor, central to many of the must see sights,with very good transport links on your doorstep also. Very good choice of restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, and well maintained, they look new in fact. If you have the breakfast included you wont be disappointed, the selection is huge.
We have stayed in 5 star hotels, in Europe and the US, and regard this as one of the best.

Very good quality hotel, when arriving you are asked if you want an outside view or an aquarium view, would recommend an aquarium view, (as it is so unique and unusual). Your room will overlook a huge glass cylinder, which is in the center of the hotel, running from floor 1 to floor 6, all types of fish are there to admire. Frogmen are there to clean the inside!
Room was very good quality and quiet, with good room service, usual services, wi fi, TV, telephone etc. Hotel is situated very conveniently, next to the Berlin cathedral.
The only downsides are: with an inside room you can't tell what the weather is until you go outside, the breakfast is expensive, €25 per person, there is a tourist tax of 5% of room price, per room, (although this applies to all Berlin hotels).

I remember the first time I stayed at the Radisson Blu. I arrived at the Central Train Station (the Hauptbahnhof) and kept walking from one tourist attraction to the next (the Reichstag, the Branderburger Tor, the Pariser-platz, ... etc) until I reached the hotel. I then walked to the Potsdamer Platz and spent 2 hours at the Gemaeldegalerie until closing time. When I finally got back to my room, I drew the curtains open and noticed I had the most sublime view on the Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral) with the Spree River flowing underneath. The cathedral was so beautifully lit at night that I found it a shame to ever draw the curtains. The Alexanderplatz and the Fernsehturm are a 7 minute walk away (in stilettos). Hence, shopping and restaurants are very close by. The Museum Insel is 5 minutes away in the opposite direction. There's a Christmas market almost right outside the hotel in late November-December. The Haeckscher Markt and Friedrichstrasse are also close by. The breakfasts at this hotel exceed expectations even when considering the exceptionally high, German hotel breakfast standard. The service is wonderful. Berlin truly is Germany's friendliest, most beautiful and most welcoming city, the Radisson Blu makes it easy to appreciate that. The only main attractions that are further away are places like Schloss Charlottenburg and the KaDeWe, but you can easily get to those places using public transit (There are U-bahn and S-Bahn stops very close to the hotel). With this hotel, there is no need to rent a car. Considering the level of luxury, location, view, cleanliness, beautiful design, gargantuous aquarium with elevator inside, fantastic service and breakfasts, I think the hotel could easily be charging more.

Room Tip: If you love a great view on a historic site, ask for a room overlooking the Spree River and the Berl...
