The InterContinental is a large conference hotel. It therefore lacks any intimacy. After check in, we had to walk through a vendors alley of some trade fair to reach the elevators of the west wing. When there is no event, the lobby and corridors are just huge and empty.

Having said this, service was great. You can not go wrong at an InterContinental. Always very reliable and the Berlin property is no exception. All the benefits for the ambassador program were in place. Nice upgrade to a large renovated room on a high floor overlooking the Zoo.

Beds are always very comfy. But If you are looking for a bit more space, a more contemporary room and a separate shower, you will have to choose a deluxe. It is quit a difference from the a bit disappointing standard rooms. The design of our deluxe was not the best InterContinental design we know, but it is still ok (it gives away it's relationship with the Dorint Heumarkt Cologne). But renovation did not go all the way leaving the old door panels visible, making the door a really prominent object in the otherwise relaxing room.

Internet is for free for IHG members (the membership is free). A Coke from the minibar will cost you 5 euros. Expensive, but about the going rate at a five star hotel. As an ambassador we got one drink, fruit and miniral water for free.

We liked the location. In a quit corner of town within easy walking distance of the Zoo, the KADEWE and the new Bikini center. Bus 200 (bringing you to all the tourist spots and transportation hubs) just in front of the hotel. Tegel airport by taxi is under euro 20,00 away.

Breakfast selection and quality off food was very good. The ambiance of the breakfast room was a bit outdated, but we were able to sit out site on the ter. Having a decent selection of bio food is a pro. Breakfast is expensive, so make sure you have got a rate which includes it. The InterContinental Berlin is one of only a few InterContinental hotels offering free breakfast for ambassadors (valid till the end of this year) when they book a best flexibel rate. The hotel staff did not know about the offer, but when I showed them on the internet site they were very happy to confirm the free breakfast in my reservation.

It might not offer the luxury feel of the Adlon, Grand Hyatt or Waldorf Astoria, but therefor it offers far better rates. Altogether we were very happy with our choice.

Dear KeesE,

Thank you for being an ambassador and for your detailed description of our hotel and services. We are always interested in our guests’ experiences to improve our daily work. As you mentioned the InterContinental is a large hotel and offers a lot of space for our guests and for conferences and events. For increased comfort, I would like to recommend our Club InterContinental for your next stay. With an extra charge of 90 Euro for non-members and less for our loyal Ambassadors per night you can stay in one of our Club rooms and benefit from an exclusive atmosphere with separate check-in, free access to the Club lounge with breakfast, snacks, Wi-Fi and sauna access. Please let me quote the description by some of our guests, who say that it feels like a hotel inside a hotel.

I am delighted that we could not only convince you with our rates but also that you enjoyed our InterContinental standards and our substantial breakfast buffet.
I hope we will welcome you again in the future,

With best regards
Robert P. Herr

We stayed in December having secured what can only be described as a bargain.

The hotel is stunning and in a fantastic location. We walked, we used public transport and we explored. The hotel proved to be an excellent base.

Our room was stunning and had the most amazing bathroom. The breakfast in the hotel was also a particular highlight.

We booked a Club room, which we recommend highly. The room was spacious and well appointed. The location is very good with most attractions in walking distance from the Hotel. The staff were both friendly & efficient. The highlight of the Hotel was the state of art wellness centre which revived us warm during the cold snap. We recomend this Hotel.

Beautiful hotel. Looks a bit 70's from outside but it's one to remember. The room (deluxe double) was perfect. Bathroom was incredible. buffet breakfast set us up for more than the day with a delicious array of meats and cheeses, fish and pastries.
The bar was a tad pricey but made up for it with the complementary olives, parma ham and cheese.
The spa was quiet and varied with steam rooms and ice baths. Location was perfect with an easy bus ride from the Airport to the Zoo with a short walk to the hotel. Being right next to Teirpark made for lovely walks in the morning to walk off the breakfast.
Would recommend a stay to anyone in Berlin.

Dear Clarkeypants85,

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am pleased to read that you had a memorable stay with us and that you have enjoyed our breakfast and Spa area. As you said, located next to the Tiergarten, you do not only have the opportunity of recreation in the park but also have perfect access to the public transport to reach most Berlin sights and districts.

I really appreciate your recommendation and I am looking forward to welcoming you again.

Dear Eitan_Babay,

Thank you for reviewing your experiences with the InterContinental Berlin and for recommending our hotel bar. With live-music, a selection of more than 150 Cocktails and the adjacent cigar and rum lounge the Marlene Bar is popular among locals and guests alike.
In a quiet location next to the Tiergarten, the hotel has an excellent public transport connection. Within walking distance you can reach the station Zoologischer Garten or you can use the bus stop in front of the house. For this reason the InterContinental Berlin is a convenient destination for holiday as well as business trips.
