The Waldorf Astoria Berlin opened only 3 years ago and I was excited to visit the hotel! Located right opposite the Zoologischer Gartner, it is centrally located in the west part of Berlin. The building itself is quite spectacular.
The lobby of the Waldorf Astoria is grand and of course, the huge Waldorf clock is the eye-catcher here. The reception staff was friendly without being over the top. I would describe the style as business… I guess many guests staying here are on a business trip.
The standard rooms of the Waldorf Astoria Berlin are of a good size. There was a king sized bed, nice sitting area and all the amenities one would expect in a Waldorf Astoria hotel: fluffy bathrobes, a Nespresso coffee machine and a fully stocked minibar. There was a nice working desk as well. The bathroom featured a single sink, separate bath tub and (rain)shower.
Getting bored here will be difficult. The spa area is gorgeous! There’s an indoor pool, sauna and several treatment rooms. I had a look at the spa menu and prices are high, but I guess it is worth paying as everything looks very professional. I liked the soft and relaxing music playing all over the place.
There are several dining options at the Waldorf Astoria Berlin. We had enjoyed an afternoon tea at the Library on the 15th floor. The view was outstanding! We were there during the festive season and could see the Christmas market on the Kurfürstendamm . The afternoon tea was nice, the tea was outstanding and we appreciated the freshly made finger sandwiches and pastries. The atmosphere was good and the Christmas music playing there made it an enjoyable experience.
The Waldorf Astoria Berlin is a great hotel in a good location. I do recommend staying here when you are looking for a luxurious experience.
