Reviewed 12 July 2009

My wife and I stayed at the Moevenpick Berlin for five nights in June and have nothing but enthusiastic praise for the staff, decor, location, room rate, etc. We got a great rate at hotels.com for one of the fantastic “designer bathtub” rooms in the attic. The breakfast buffet is as good as they get but at 21 Euros per person it’s overpriced. Other than that we recommend this hotel without reservation.

Reviewed 20 June 2009

Stayed there for 1 night in June 2009. Hotel was clean and modern, but lacked any sort of character that makes a hotel welcoming.

Staff were OK but as with all the hotels I've stayed in Berlin lacked enthusiasm for their job, they were laid back to the point of being disinterested. Room service not 24 hour and menu fiddly and limited. Food when it turned up was quite good.

Had a suite room that was a decent size, although for the price not really worth it. Plenty of room to move about in it though as furnishings were very limited.

To be honest, never felt at home. One very annoying feature was automatic blinds that went up and down outside the windows depending on the light levels outside. If you're sleeping in the day the noise will wake you up and when they are down they completely block any view you may have of outside.

Another annoying thing was the air-con wouldn't go down low enough, even on the lowest setting the room always felt hot.

Not a bad hotel, but for the money well below average in my opinion.

Stayed 4 nights recently - modern, large rooms, well appointed, well located (over the road from the S-Bahn), quiet and excellent service. Lives up to the Swiss standard. In a converted Siemans factory so high ceilings and good space - we stayed on the top floor with mansard roof and velux style windows - lovely views. Kreuzberg location is interesting - try Max & Moritz - Great resto within walking distance.

Hotel 2 mins walk from underground station Anhalter Bahnhof , Its a comfortable 10mins walk from Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie etc.
We found the staff at the front desk very pleasant, informative and efficient:
All in all a really good trip. I would happily recommend it as somewhere to stay.
Berlin is well worth visiting if you like history, museums, food, theatre, quality shopping and big city buzz. We'd go again!

We spent 3 days in this hotel. Location was good, close to Potsdamer Plats, Checkpoint Charlie, old location of German SS police and other historic sites. Room was on the 3rd floor, very spacious and quiet. Very clean. Breakfast buffet was plentiful although pricey @ 21 euro. Overall a nice experience. Recommended.

Location:
The hotel is not located in Mitte, but it is only two stops away from Pots Platz, and very easily accessible on the U and S Bahns. It is walking distance to Charlie's Checkpoint. There are a few good cafes and restaurants nearby, but these are a little tourist-oriented due to the high number of hotels in the area.

Service:
Fantastic and friendly front of desk staff. Housekeeping was very good - I asked for a kettle and a custom pillow - both requests were promptly delivered. Room service was also very good. The restaurant in the hotel serves up some Swiss inspired food, delicious!

The Room:
I got a standard room, with high ceilings and a modern look. Lots of storage and thoughtful details like coat hooks on the wall by the doorway and lights underneath the bathroom step to make sure you don't stub your foot when you go to the bathroom at night. The bathroom's wall is made of glass bricks, so share the room with someone you're comfortable with! The (horrendous) view was blocked out by thoughtful blacked out curtains and the room was spacious enough for a couple.

The extras:
Love the a la carte pillow menu, also the rubber duck in the shower was a nice touch. I stayed during Easter weekend and a dark choc bunny was left on my desk when I came back from sightseeing. The Moevenpick gets top points for attention to detail.

My wife and I stayed at this very modern hotel for three nights to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We arrived on 29th April and left on May 2nd 2008. We were offered a discounted upgrade on arrival and swapped the Superior room for one of the junior suites in the old loft on the fifth floor.

Near an historically important local train station, Anhalter Bahnhof, the hotel is in a quieter area away from the busy central spots. We were able to walk to Potsdamer Platz in around 10-15 minutes, although it is only one stop away on the S-Bahn (getting on at Anhalter Bahnhof a few steps from the hotel).

The hotel itself is very stylish, located in the old Siemens headquarters, and has been very thoughtfully designed with a tip of the hat here and there towards the old and continuing activities of the company which once owned the building. In the bar some of the tables were supported by glass insulator stacks, such as those that you see hanging from pylons. In the room the shower room door was like that which you'd find in a factory, sliding across on a rail. There was a lot of funky lighting and use of different materials to theme the look of the place.

We found the staff at the front desk very pleasant, informative and efficient: just as you'd except from German staff working for a Swiss hotel chain. However, we did think it was a bit off when tried to go to bed and had to wait quite a while following our request a pillow containing man-made stuffing, as all the bedding contained feathers, which my wife is allergic to. We phoned the front desk at around 11.30pm and were told that it would take an hour and a half to get the pillow sent up. This was because there was only one staff member at the desk and they were not allowed to leave until another member of staff turned up at 1am. I wasn't able to collect it myself as the person at the desk would still have to leave to go to the store room.

Our only other real criticisms were as reflected in one or two other reviews here. The hotel seems a little too eager to (over)charge for everything. Breakfast was to be a whopping 21 Euros each... It would have to be some breakfast for us to have paid that! A cheaper alternative is the Stresemann Cafe on the corner, near the S-Bahn station.

The minibar in the room was also fairly expensive, as they tend to be in most hotels, and the main bar near the lobby and entrance was way overpriced at over 4.50 Euros for a 0.5l glass of beer. The inflated prices and persistent charging for everything actually put us off having a meal in the hotel's modern restaurant and we went elsewhere.

We loved Berlin itself. The people were friendly, the service generally very good, there was a lot to see and a year ago would have been good value for a capital city (we got stung with the poor Pound versus Euro rate which made it an expensive visit!)

Berlin isn't the prettiest of cities but there's never a shortage of things to do or places to eat and drink. There's bags of history, especially recent world history, and the people are very welcoming and keen to show what modern Germany is about. We were there during a public holiday and the avenue leading away from Brandenberg gate was heaving with people having a street party. They were mostly eating currywurst hotdogs and drinking beer to the sound of a live band. The atmosphere was lively and we joined in with the Berliners as if we belonged there!

Highlights for us included seeing the remaining parts of the Berlin Wall and visiting the Jewish museum and Olympic stadium. The round trip bus tours are better value than some cities as there is a lot to see and takes around two hours to do the full tour. The public transport is excellent and a day pass covering both the U-Bahn and S-Bahn are great value for money.

Get in early for the Reichstag. We queued for an hour to get in but the queue hardly moved and it was a hot day. They only seem to let a relatively small group in every half an hour. We gave up and sadly missed out on one of the main attractions. There were plenty of other places to go.

We found the Sony Centre at Postdamer Platz to have a good atmoshere and ate at a couple of restaurants there. The Josty restaurant was recommended by our guidebook but we weren't impressed. We had to move to be served, the menu wasn't very logical and I paid 14 Euros for a pizza which tasted as though it was straight from a Findus or McCain factory. The waiter also stood waiting for a tip. We enjoyed the Lutter & Wegner restaurant just outside, near the shopping arcade and casino. It cost around 80 Euros for a starter, main and coffee each plus a bottle of wine.

All in all a really good trip. I would happily agree that the Moevenpick Hotel was a good place to stay, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it as somewhere vastly superior to anywhere else. That's not to say that we didn't enjoy our stay there on the whole and it was clean and very stylish in a modern way; just one or two minor irritations. Berlin is well worth visiting if you like history, museums, food, theatre, quality shopping and big city buzz. We'd go again!
