The Sheraton Berlin Esplanade is a five star hotel located near the historic center of Berlin. It used to be the Grand Hotel Esplanade but is now run by Sheraton for several years. We flew to Berlin and were surprised by how easy it is to get here from the airport to the hotel with public transportation. As soon as you enter the Sheraton Berlin Esplanade you will immediately notice how large this hotel is featuring 394 rooms. The lobby area here is cozy and spacious with several comfortable sitting areas and a fireplace. It was so nice to feel the heat as it was snowing outside!
Check-in was very good and everything we needed to know about the hotel was told in a professional way. I had a few small requests and every request has been taken care of in very good way.
We stayed in a twin bedroom and although the room wasn’t too large, it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Bathroom featured tub/shower combination, single sink and toilet. There’s a comfy chair in the room which is ideal for reading! The only downside here is the wifi which is chargeable. Free internet is offered in the lobby area though.
A lot of things to do here! On the main floor, an indoor pool and fitness area can be used at no additional charge. The temperature of the (pool) water was perfect and it never was too crowded when I was there. After swimming or working out, you can relax on the lounge chairs next to the pool. The place was well maintained. Access to the sauna is chargeable, by the way (10 EUR).
After a great work-out, it was time for dinner! We had dinner at the Ellipse Lounge and enjoyed our dishes! The carpaccio of beef and ceasar’s salad were great. The lady took care of us in a very professional and kind way. Waiting times between the courses were limited and overall quality was very good, thumbs up!
The Sheraton Berlin Esplanade recently opened a brand new club lounge. We had access to the lounge and liked it very much! It has only been opened for about 2 weeks and appreciated the complimentary light bites and drinks. A small breakfast buffet is presented here during the morning from 7h – 10h30. The breakfast buffet which is offered at the main breakfast restaurant offers more variety but if you are not a big eater the buffet at the club lounge would be fine! At night from 5h30 – 7h30 small appetizers and alcoholic drinks are offered. During the day, soft drinks, water and coffee are offered. I do recommend an upgrade to the club lounge, it is worth the money and truly has a relaxed atmosphere! Great for working or just reading a book …
A full breakfast buffet is offered at Elements, the breakfast restaurant. Everything you want for a great start of the day can be found here! Great breakfast!
Our stay at the Sheraton Grand Hotel Esplanade has been a good one. It offers comfortable rooms and facilities at very fair rates!
