Kempinski Hotel Bristol Feb 2012

If you don't want to slum it in Berlin but want to pay slightly less than the more centrally located posh hotels, then the Kempinski Hotel Bristol is a good choice. Architecturally pleasing with a hint of 1920's decadence, the hotel has friendly and helpful staff, which goes some way to offset the price of the drinks in the bar. The hotel is located on the Kurfürstendamm (Ku'damm), one of the most famous shopping avenues in Berlin but this does mean there is not an abundance of bars and restaurants to meet the casual eye. They can be found of course, but the positive side is that the general ambience of the area is calm, the only noise at night the sound of the occasional train rattling past. Some reviews have mentioned that the rooms and decor are slightly worn and that the television in the room is not a flat screen. . To a small extent the comments about the décor are true but does not detract from the general air of quality and comfort.. We didn’t come to Berlin to watch TV so the CRT telly was not an issue. The room we occupied was clean and comfortable, although be prepared for two single duvets if you have a double bed. The bathroom was a decent size by European standards and the shower nice and strong. Directly outside you can find a Starbucks to visit for breakfast if you don’t want to pay the 15 euro pp breakfast in the hotel. The U-Bahn is very easy to use and the station Uhlandstraße on the U1 line is next to Starbucks. For example you can be at Alexanderplatz within 20 minutes with one change. (Change onto the U2 at Gleisdreieck for Alexanderplatz, where you can find the TV Tower) There is a taxi rank right outside the hotel on the main entrance. If you are feeling sprightly, you can take a left out of the hotel and walk down the Ku'damm, navigate your way through the Tiergarten, visit the Siegessäule with its fine views over Berlin, see the first two tanks that entered Berlin at the Soviet War Memorial, admire the Brandenburg Gate and stop for a rest at the Reichstag, all in about 2-3 hours. For us, this was the best way to get a feel of Berlin. In summary, the Kempinski Hotel Bristol is a comfortable hotel with good service in a pleasant district of Berlin, with good public transport links and all the major sites are walkable if that takes your fancy.

"Great hotel, better location"

The hotel is located at an ubeatable location. If the goal of the trip is to get to see as much of Berlin as possible while staying at a great hotel this is your place. There is Underground stop, a bus stop and a sightseeing bus just a hundred meters on the main street. Close to the zoo, and the area where located is full of restaurants, cafes and high end shops. The TV was not the best, but other than that, you can´t go wrong.

Unbeatable location,First Class Hotel

The Kempinski is a first class chain and the Berlin hotel on the "Ku'Dum" is no exception. Great restaurants (and fair prices) in and near the hotel. The finishings within the room (very nice art, a luxurious bedspread, room size, draperies, double pane windows-which open) are all first class.

Excellent Hotel

This is a very comfortable hotel in a nice location. It is somewhat removed from the main sites however it is well situated for shopping, strolling and finding quiet restaurants. The rooms were not large but very adequate and clean. Beds and pillows were fantastic!

Point 1. We were recommended to

Point 1. We were recommended to the Kempinski by our travel agent. We were not expecting the Bristol to be a "five star" hotel however,we entered our room and noticed that the roof was leaking directly under the air conditioning duct in the hall way - We managed through one night and the next day advised the reception desk. Nothing was done. After sightseeing all day we came back to the room -ceiling was still leaking and carpet was wet. My husband touched the ceiling panel and water gushed out. Point 2 We travel considerable flight hours from Australia and have been frustrated by the lack of room amenities such as tea/coffee making facilities and iron and ironing board. We travel widely throughout Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the USA and these conveniences are standard in every hotel room. Staff were very friendly. Absence of management.
