Back to Berlin

Would recommend Wed, Jan 7, 2015
I lived in Berlin during my high school years in the early seventies. This hotel is located in what at that time was in East Berlin, but is now the center of town. It is a great location with several subway (U-bahn) stations located within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and the hotel is modern and clean. Took the advice of another reviewer and had breakfast at a place across the Gendarmenmarkt square which was much cheaper than the hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of both Check Point Charlie and the Brandenburg Gate which was in no-mans land while the wall was up. Lots of construction going on as many historic buildings that were in East Berlin were not maintained and are falling apart. We got a 5 day pass for public transportation which allowed for unlimited travel on the two rail systems (U and S-bahn) as well as buses, which I highly recommend. Stayed for 5 days and had a great time.

Fab Xmas stay for my Fiance's 30th birthday!!

Would recommend Mon, Dec 15, 2014
I booked to stay at the Sofitel Berlin Gendarmenmarkt as a surprise for my fiance's 30th birthday....and what can I say, I couldn't have asked for a better hotel! The location was amazing on the doorstep of the best Xmas market in Berlin. The decor of the hotel also exceeded expectations. My fiance's face was a picture when he walked through the door. Very happy customer! Would definitely return.

Great location

Would recommend Sun, Dec 8, 2013
Located on the Gendarmenmarkt. Best Xmas market just across the road.Excellent English speaking staff. Decided against breakfast (at 28 Euros each !) and found a very nice cafe across the square. Classic room was just a little small, with little room on each side of the bed. Free bottle of water and apple but NO TEA OR COFFEE in the room. They probably couldn't fit it in the room. Fantastic spacious shower/toilet. spotlessly clean. Reasonably priced mini bar.

Dining

La Perle, a small cafe/ bakery on Taubenstraße does fresh breakfasts for about 5 Euros. Croissants/ preserves/fresh fruit or scrambles egg +/- ham.

Berlin: a pleasure. Sofitel: lovely

Would recommend Fri, Mar 2, 2012
We went to Berlin in February. The city is great. The Sofitel Hotel is located right in the middle of the Mitte Section of town. it is in close walking distance to many attractions including Museum Island and close to a U-Bahn station. It is also close to the airport. The staff was most helpful. The were polite and courteous. The entire staff speaks English which saved me from using my phrase book too much. The room was very comfortable though a little small. I would definitely stay here in my next visit to Berlin. I would recommend it to anyone.

Dining

Fassbender and Rausch. A visit to The chocolate store and cafe above is a must. They have custom made hot chocolate from their own plantations. You have a choice of strengths (percentage of chocolate) in each drink. It is located at Charlottenstrasse 60. Across from the Stad-Mitte U-Bahn.

Great Location; Friendly, helpful staff

Would recommend Thu, Dec 1, 2011
Had a good stay. The Gendarenmarkt is ideally located a block from the Franzoesichestrasse U bann and Friedrichstrasse, near great shopping, great restaurants, Unter den Linden, the Statsoper, the Brandenburg Gate and more. And the view of the Gendarenmarkt is special. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful. But in the end the rooms are functional but merely adequate with tired furniture and inadequate lighting. That said the bathroom was just fine and the amenities (coffee, computer set up) were very good. Still I was in a junior suite and the room was not very special from my perspective. I wld not recommend as a four star, but otherwise it works well.

Attractions

U bann is the key to the city, which IS spread out. Get an all day ticket for zones A and B (6.30 E) and 90+% of what you want to see (and can't walk to) is 10-30 minutes away. You'll need coins for some machines, but my American Credit cards without pins--and my UK and American debit cards WITH PINS--didn't work.

The best of central Berlin is easily accessible from this excellent hotel. The staff was welcoming and warm throughout our stay. Local dining options are great. Room on the small size. If you're heading to Berlin, careful consider this superb value!

Great location and service, lovely room.

Would recommend Mon, Apr 18, 2011
The hotel was in a great location, many wonderful restaurants within walking distance as well as shops. As a tourist, the concierge was top notch - recommendations on what to do proved wonderful, tickets were secured. All my needs were handled effortlessly. The only thing missing was good lighting in my room. The mood lighting of yellow, pink and purple hues although interesting, wasn't functional and resulted in having a room with very low to dark light. The room itself was well appointed as was the bathroom.

Time saver

To see the sites and decide where you want to spend your time take the 20 euro bus tour that stops at 16 different locations. It allows you to get on and off the bus tour all day with tour buses stopping at all locations approximately every 10 minutes to get on or off again. Headsets provide info in any language providing an overview of the various sites.
