“Excellent hotel, super awesome stafg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

The hotel belonged to another chain and was recently acquired by Sofitel. It is still a very nice hotel. You can see that Sofitel is putting their stamp on the hotel. While we were there, we witnessed some of the changes. Our beds and bed linens were changed during our stay. The toiletries were also changed to Hermès.
The staff recognized you every time you walked into the hotel. It was nice to not feel faceless and invisible.
I did not eat or drink in the hotel during my stay so I can't comment on that the bathroom was very nice. I liked the design much I took pictures for ideas for my own bathroom remodel.
The beds were comfortable. I will say that if you are rooming with someone you are not involved with, they will separate the beds. Note that even though the beds are separated, they are less that 12 inches apart. That may be too close for comfort for those who are used to having more space between the beds.
The area around the is very nice. You have many shops and restaurants to chose from. I happened to be there for the nightly Europa-Center festivities. It was a good time for everyone. Music, dancing, Nutella crepes, beer and more shops make for a great night.
if you must take public transportation from Tegel take the 109 bus. It drops you off of Ku'dam Strasse a few blocks from the hotel. The X9 bus will drop you off by the zoo. It is only one more block of walking. This is also the only airport bound bus operating early in the morning if you have an early flight. I believe it runs every 20 minutes early in the morning.

We stayed here for a weekend break and after much rumination decided to stay in the ex West, which, is still much nicer with lots of restaurants around and away from the still building site of the East.

The room was absolutely lovely, large, comfortable and with a super luxurious bathroom - and that's in a standard room. The breakfast is ok, probably not quite what it was cracked up to be when we were sold a deal on check in - but a four out of five and we did manage to linger until midday on Sunday!

The communal areas let the hotel down. Empty soulless and unused. And the bar, with worn carpets and a small area is a disgrace for a hotel of this standing. Apparently Sofitel only took it over recently, and work was in progress. Its a beautiful art deco building so lets hope for some sympathetic progress in the way it is used.

Berlin is fantastic. You may not like it - its 20th century history is unpleasant and evident. It is huge and not always easy to get around, but utterly fascinating. We did the bus trip, which reception organised, if you are on a quick trip its a must, and starts just near by on the Ku'dam.

Loved it, but please brighten up the communal areas and lets have a sexy bar worthy of a five star hotel in Berlin.

Room Tip: We were on the side road at the corner which s quieter

Bonjour Ian P,

Thank your very much for sharing your impressions with us.

Just 3 weeks ago we re-opend the bar, the restaurant and the public areas which were
redecorated according to the Sofitel standards during the summer.
My team and myself are excited about the new look and I am pretty sure that you will like
the new and modern style.

I am looking forward to welcome you back and present the new look.

Kindest regards

This is our favorite hotel. We have been in Berlin severale times and stayed at different hotels. After our first stay at hotel Concorde Berlin we never used a other hotell. Last year Concorde Berlin became a member of Sofitel and we was dissapointed. But when we again came back to Kurfuerstendamm again and stayed at Sofitel we still loved this hotel. They have the same culture for making your stay the best, from the reception to the breakfast staff. Always smiling, always wants to please you and if you ask for something they will do their best for helpng you. We also travelled with our son from he was 1 year and now he is 4 yeras and they also makes his stay very good also. I would recommend this hotel very much. Last week i had my birtday and from Berlin there came a card from the hotell wishing me happy birtday. Not a big thing and they did not have to do it but this things makes this hotel to our favorite hotel.

We got a really good deal on a room staying at this hotel.

We were very pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and almost thought we had been upgraded since the hotel was fully booked.

The hotel is really nicely situated and easy to get to via public transportation and is just a short walk away from Ka De We.

Only negative thing was the reaally expensive breakfast if not ordered with the room.

Would stay here again!

Great location, very nice rooms, very friendly staff.
Downside is the ridiculous expensive parking and breakfast.
Enough places nearby hotel to have your breakfast cheaper.

Parking, you better leave your car outside and not pay the parking fee. The fine is 15 euro, parking in the hotel will cost you 21,- per day, if you are lucky you might park a day for free but at least it is cheaper.

Would go there again but then without a car.

We drove 5 hours to Berlin and everything was great from the start. Had pre booked and taken the family offered discount for 2 rooms. rooms were spacious and luxury standard, staff everywhere in the hotel were wonderful and very helpful. breakfast deal for the family was worth the price for the quality and food variety (don't miss it) and the restaurant staff were extra friendly. Hotel was in a very excellent location access to major shopping streets and access to the sight seeing city tours and underground/tram services.

My family had wonderful time and felt very pleased with this hotel! I would definitely stay in it next time am at Berlin.
