Just a few steps away from the Berlin Cathedral, the Radisson Blu is located in a perfect spot in Berlin! This 5 star hotel is one of the top hotels in the city and offers luxurious rooms and great spa facilities in the “middle of it all”! As soon as you enter the hotel, you will be amazed by the large aquarium in the lobby area. Actually, it is the world’s largest cylindrical aquarium! Very spectacular! It is a 25 meter tall aquarium with a built-in transparent elevator. The aquarium is the main attraction of the Berlin Sea Life Centre. By the way, they feed the fish several times a day, it is fun to watch!
Check-in procedure was efficient and friendly. They will give you all the information you need about the hotel and surrounding areas.
We stayed in one of their junior suites. These corner rooms are very spacious (47 m²) and have a separate sitting and sleeping area, a large desk and king sized bed. The bathroom had double sinks, separate bathtub and shower. I appreciated the 2 flatscreen televisions and fully equipped minibar and Nespresso machine.
There is a spa area with a (small) swimming pool. Is there a better way of starting your day with a swim? I also used the sauna and fitness facilities which I thoroughly enjoyed. I should also mention that the place couldn’t have been cleaner. Towels and slippers are provided at no additional charge. The good thing is that the pool and sauna can be used from 6 am till 10 pm.
At night, we had dinner at their restaurant “HEat” and the food was of a very good quality! We had a 3 course menu and found the dishes reasonably priced. Highly recommended! The staff was excellent and worked hard. I appreciated the wine menu with a lot of choices and totally enjoyed their signature cocktails. Do try those cocktails, you won’t regret, I promise J
As usual, a breakfast at a Radisson Blu is always a good one! I liked the selection of food and didn’t had to wait too long when I ordered something. Staff was helpful and friendly.
The Radisson Blu Berlin is a great hotel located in a very interesting area in Berlin! I did appreciate the modern look and recommend staying there!
