Sofitel Berlin Kurfuerstendamm
Ranked #28 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 March 2014

That was our third or fourth stay in this hotel and the first time under Sofitel brand.

Not so many changes from being under Concorde management, not yet at least.
Actually, I hope it stays that way except one thing that I will mention below.

The staff is super friendly (as it was).
Espresso is very very good (as it was).
Rooms are super (as they were). I know it is a mater of taste - but it works so nice for us! Really good. Especially bathroom. The size, the douche - very good. Nothing to compare with many other high level hotels, especially in the surroundings (Ku'damm).
Choice of channels - okay. Many HD channels. Could not find English speaking, but I was not particularly looking ( we both speak German).

The minus is a lack of kettle and tea in rooms. Till now I was asking the reception to organize one for me - it was not a problem. This time they asked for 12 Euros. That is irritating. I could not understand the rationale behind this number.
At the end, I brought my own (matter of principle).
For those who are looking for a good tea - good choice in KaDeWe and there is another Tee Gschwendner shop nearby.

Location is super. On the Ku'damm, 7 - 10 mins by foot from S-Bahn.
Not so many hipsters as can be in other parts of Berlin (for good and for bad).
Vapiano - Italian fast food chain - not bad, is in the same building. Can be a good fix for an afternoon or night.
Another thing - take a walk on Mommsenstrasse, Bleibtreustrasse - wonderful Jugenstil architecture.

As to the switch to Sofitel,we will definitely give them a chance and come back. Hopefully they will arrange for kettle in rooms till then. Then it will be perfect.

Dear George B,

Thank your very much for your detailed review. As we are now Sofitel since the 1st of February
there are still things which we have to implement, but we are on a very good way.
Thanks for your compliment regarding the service and the friendliness of the staff - this
is very motivating for the entire team.

We have several english speaking channels which you can find in the tv menu beside your
bed. Please ask the friendly reception team for more information on your next stay.

We are looking forward to welcome back very soon.

Kindest regards

Carsten Colmorgen

Spent a weekend here with my girlfriend, and we had a good time! There was good shopping and good food just around the corner! They serve a nice breakfast, and my favourite, american pancakes! If I return to Berlin, I would be happy to return to this hotel!

What a fabulous hotel! Staff were excellent in all aspects, could not have done more for us or been more welcoming and friendly. Rooms were spacious enough with all you could ask for. Great location near both the S and U bahn making it very easy to get around to all the tourist attractions. Also located just off the main shopping street with every shop you could ask for near by. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel but many cafes and that nearby. Overall a great trip and a hotel which we would most definitely return to and highly recommend.

Retro "modern" interesting hotel. Nice staff. Very clean, spotless, I would say, spacious rooms. Excellent more than I expected breakfast. Easy access to everywhere, lots of shopping all around, for that I did not have time unfortunately...

My husband and I have just had a lovely weekend in this hotel. From the moment we arrived staff were so friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Nothing was a problem for them. Made to feel like VIPs all weekend.
We were very lucky to be selected as the hotels "guest of the day" with access to executive lounge we enjoyed champagne with a view and lots of delicious treats. Breakfast was delicious, everything was so fresh and anything you would like made to order (pancakes, waffles, bacon, eggs ..... yum!)
Our room was beautiful, very comfy beds! Lovely big bathroom with good shower separate to bath.
We enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant for valentines day with matched wine soo tasty!
Lots of lovely restaurants nearby too and we found a cool sky bar nearby for drinks overlooking the city.
The hotel is a little away from main attractions but a subway stop right outside and plenty of taxis. Also short walk from station to/from airport.
Would definately recommend this hotel as it has a lovely welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!

I was always very attracted by the great design of this hotel building, which really blends in a touch from the past with a clean and distinctive modern personality, making it definitely recognisable in the city's complex landscape, I find.
The personnel is really well trained and extensively coordinated, allowing one's enjoying the very much desired and dearly expected welcome-guest feeling, ever since the taxi door is opened with confident care.
The room is deep and wide, full of light, evoking a design-proud heritage down to each and every detail and feature of it.
There is a well proportionate, and nicely concealed cabin area, which leads to the bathroom, fairly wide and righteously comfortable, with both a tab and a shower room alike, and pleasant amenities.
The wellness area is really, really nice and very well made!
Steam and dry rooms are matched by the foot hydro massage stations, with loads of fresh ice available, too, plenty of freshly soft towels, relaxing mosaic motives on the floor and on the walls, good training equipment and pleasing perfume to welcome the guests, in a super clean fashion.
The breakfast runs through the morning and up until mid day, on Saturdays and Sundays (!) which is of course great, featuring excellent service and a quiet atmosphere, and taxis are always available right outside, unless you want to take a walk to enjoy the luxurious and easy-access location and either go to a cinema nearby or enjoy a shopping ride on foot, smoothly.
