Located in the ‘middle of it all’, the Hilton Berlin is a top five star hotel which I thoroughly enjoyed… I was ‘wowed’ when I entered this grand hotel! The lobby area truly is spectacular and has the most comfortable seating areas all over the place. It felt really good hanging out here during the day and night as the place was well maintained, trendy and ultra luxurious! What a great start!
Check-in was very efficient and the check-in staff was professional and friendly without being over the top… just the way I like it and the way it should be! Our keys were handed in seconds and we were curious on how the room will look like.
The room we stayed in, an executive deluxe room with a direct view of the dome, was very classy and comfortable! As you may expect of a Hilton hotel, it had all the amenities and facilities of a five star hotel. The trendy couch was perfect for reading or surfing on my iPad! I still had some work to do and appreciated the large desk with the most comfortable seat. Plenty of sockets as well which is a bonus J The bathroom had a tub/shower combination, toilet and single sink. The typical Hilton toiletries were great.
Since we had an executive room, we had access to the executive lounge which is located on the ground floor next to the reception area. It was one of the better executive lounges I have experienced! A small breakfast buffet is offered during the morning, an afternoon cake buffet in the afternoon and at night (from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm) a selection of alcoholic drinks (including some spirits) and a buffet with light bites. You don’t have to leave the hotel to eat when you have access to the executive lounge! From soup to (hot)sandwiches, vegetables, etc. They have it all! Highly recommended to upgrade your stay with lounge access!
The spa area here is just gorgeous! The Hilton Berlin has an indoor pool which had a good size by the way! Not one of those small hotel pools, you can actually swim in this one J Next to the pool, is a full fitness center with the latest technology equipment. I should mention the lovely staff! They were all great and every request has been fulfilled with a smile, thumbs up!
There are several dining options here, from à la carte restaurants and fancy lobby bars to a buffet style restaurant. We had dinner at their restaurant Mark Brandenburg, a classic Berlin restaurant right at the Gendarmenmarkt. They offer a great menu and I tried the traditional schnitzel which was absolutely delicious! Definitely a must try when you are there! Staff was wonderful… Breakfast is served at restaurant Beletage offering the most amazing views out of the Gendarmenmarkt. Really spectacular and so was the buffet… the food really good and plenty of choice!
I can not say a bad word about the Hilton Berlin! One of the better hotels I have stayed at in Berlin and definitely worth staying here if you are looking for a full five star experience!
