We stayed at the Ritz Carlton this weekend for the second time, the first stay being two years back. Even though there are a lot of hotels in Berlin, the Ritz Carlton is by far the most magnificent and overwhelming grand hotel there is.
This time, we were in for a real treat. Since the hotel was fully booked, we were upgraded from a regular double room to a Grand Suite (the Lenée Suite on the 9th floor). Above that, there is only the Presidential Suite. We were on a prepaid, discounted rate - I have never experienced such generosity from a hotel! Thanks again!
The suite was big. Really big. 105 square meters, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, living and dining room, library and working room, bedroom, walk in closet. 4 TVs, 3 sofas, 8 chairs and so on. Huge bathtub, walk-in shower - and everything decorated very lovingly. Since it is on the corner of the building, great view across the Potsdamer Platz. But don't worry, we have also stayed in the regular rooms and they are just as great - only a tad smaller.
The beds are really amazing, the best sleep we have ever gotten in a hotel (and we have been to a lot of them, including LHW, R&C etc.). Service perfect, very friendly and authentic.
The breakfast is definitely worth it (book a rate that includes breakfast instead of paying 38 Euros for it!). It is served in the Brasserie which has a real French feel to it. The variety is amazing, ranging from wide fruit choices, a good assortment of French cheeses, live cooking to a little bakery. Ah, the bakery - this is a special treat. They have all kinds of breads you can think of as well as French croissanteries like chocolate croissants, cinnamon rolls and so on. Furthermore, they make fresh crepes (!!!), waffles and pancakes, have a wide choice of toppings (little caramel bits, chocolate sprinkles, gummy bears and, and, and...) and fabulous marmelades. I would definitely consider getting up at 6 in the morning and spending my time there until they close breakfast. This breakfast is just too good to be true.
In short - spoil yourself for a great price (when you compare their prices to what you would pay in other capitals of the world in such a league). Stay here - you will not regret it.
