Sofitel Berlin Gendarmenmarkt

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Unlike some European hotels that claim to be five star but don't offer the full package, the Sofitel Berlin delivers on this aspect. Not being a large hotel it is able to personalise the service to its guests. For example, as well as being able to arrange concert tickets at standard prices the staff were able to offer advice about the concert venue and the benefits associated with each ticket price group. Many of the staff are multi-lingual and were exceptionally helpful. A special mention of the Lady Chef who cooked our breakfast omelettes, and personally delivered them to the table - a nice touch. A wide range of breakfast choices are available with an emphasis on healthy food. Rooms are tastefully furnished and perhaps more compact than experienced in some non- European countries, but adequate in size. The extra topper pad on the bed was not appreciated though. Two U train lines (underground) are within about 200 metres of the hotel. Looking forward to a return visit at some stage.

Overall a great place to stay, all main sights within walking distance and beautiful location in the historic Gendarmenmarkt square. Bed was very comfy and bathroom lovely with an excellent shower. However, having stayed in other Sofitels in the past we found the classic room was a bit on the small side and lacking in basic amenities you'd expect of a hotel of this standard. The staff kindly provided a kettle, tea and conditioner when asked, but would have been even better if these were provided as standard.

This was a very cute hotel with excellent service. The room was a bit small and dark though, especially the bathroom. I kind of managed but it's definitely not for two people. I would make sure to book a bigger room next time.

We stayed at the hotel for four nights and our stay was great. The room was roomy and with good linens and perfect amount of good towels. The personnel all very helpful. The location is perfect for walking around we liked it very much.

Trying to avoid the "big city, big luxury hotel" syndrome in Berlin? The Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt might be the perfect answer. Yes, it's a luxury Sofitel property. And it's in a very central Berlin location, just two blocks off Unter den Linden, walking distance to the Museuminsel (museum island). But the Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt isn't an over-the-top, mammoth big city hotel. It's a small luxury hotel, efficiently run, in a relatively quiet location overlooking the lovely Gendarmenmarkt square. Notes: Small lobby (but who cares?). Excellent exercise facility. Modern lifts/elevators. Good service, without being intrusive.

Located on Gendarmenmakt Square, it is situated right in the Berlin Mitte. We stayed for 4 nights and had an excellent experience. Rooms are modern, well equipped and have what you need. The place is quiet and also the lobby area is pleasant and relaxed (compared to some of the big chain hotels where the lobby sometimes resembles a railroad station in terms of noise and activity. The staff is very helpful and will organise car parking for a reasonable price. Strongly recommend to stay here if you need a place in Mitte.

It starts when you see the beautiful facade and marble entry. Friendly staff. Small but extremely well appointed room. Bathrobe and slippers. Daily paper. And here's a fab tip. Buy nice bottles of wine from the restaurant for 9 euro! Less than glasses. Also centrally located to everything, including open air summer concerts with fireworks.

I ranked the Sofitel Hotel Berlin Gendarmenmarkt, all around, 7 out of 10 stars. This boutique luxury hotel in central Berlin achieves most of my expectations for a 5 star hotel; Great location, excellent service, great food, nice rooms. About a 10 min walk to Brandenburg Gate, @thegreatwalltravels for more. While there is much to rave about, there are a few areas that this hotel could work to rank higher. While this hotel is limited on the amount of amenities offered, they should keep hotel and interior in tip top condition. The Sofitel Berlin may also benefit by offering additional amenities / services for guests; perhaps partner with a tour company or opera house.

This hotel was first class in every way. Fantastic location, central to everything. Our room/suite was magnificent with a great view. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and polite. The restaurant manager was a bit grumpy but otherwise the food and service were great. A great place to stay, we enjoyed 3 nights here.

Very busy and good week for hotel room sales in Berlin. As we were 4 persons we booked two suites to share , as rooms became available we were called and took them. We all had a separate room in the end. Friendly team to park the car , nice breakfast and overall excellent quiet rooms. I slept well and our guests were happy. Liked the bathroom devour do here some photos for you too. Here in Berlin where people are generally not always the most friendly you feel very welcome. Compliments to the Team of Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt.
