Great location

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.

Berlin: a pleasure. Sofitel: lovely

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.

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

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Great location and service, lovely room.

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-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.
