An extended weekend in Berlin gives you enough time to enjoy the city AND your hotel room! We booked a deluxe double for only slightly more than standard room rate. Our room, 342, was huge so we didn't experience the luggage space problems that a lot of reviewers have commented on. It also faced over the courtyard and was incredibly quiet. I loved the unconventional room layout and it is obvious that they have put a huge amount of attention into the detail. I could not fault anything and my husband would call me fussy, so that's a credit to the hotel! The bathroom with its' glass mural in the shower was fantastic. Power points in abundance and well located, even in the bathroom. Wall to ceiling windows. Not having to see the tv from the bed if we chose not to! After the first night being hot in the room, we realized we needed to turn off the heating completely and open the windows to the airing position (the only position available). It solved the problem! The list of compliments goes on.
The staff were all young and friendly. We enjoyed a drink in the unusually quiet bar on the Sat. Enjoyed a Watermelon Man, invented in Berlin! Treat yourself! The hotel location was fine and I didn't mind it being in a side street because it was so close to the TV tower and within walking distance to a lot of sites. It was also an easy trip from Schoenefeld Airport.
Our rate included breakfast. If I had room only and had to pay the usual breakfast rate, if the EUR17 quoted by other reviewers is correct, I would consider it very overpriced. Based on experience, I would consider it to be worth no more than EUR11. There are heaps of cafés in Berlin, more than any other city I have ever visited, and I would probably choose to dine out instead. The breakfast staff always had a smile on offer, despite being run off their feet on the weekend as the Holiday Inn guests also dined there that weekend (due to both hotels only being half full).
So, why did I choose this hotel? Firstly, because the Manager takes on board comments written on this site and provides suitable responses in a swift manner. He is the obvious reason the staff look so happy! Secondly, I am an IHG member, although only at lowest level, I should point out. So it did not provide me with any benefits that have swayed my opinion! I would definitely go back, although next time we would have our two teenagers with us so we would need two rooms!
