Sofitel Berlin Gendarmenmarkt

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at the hotel to attend meetings at the Canadian Embassy, a 15-minute walk away. The location of the hotel is very central, close to many good restaurants and very close to the subway. The rooms are smallish but nice and clean. Service is attentive and friendly. Would definitely consider it again if coming back to Berlin.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, right next to the Gendarmenmarkt, easy reach to Unter den Linden, the river and the island is nearby as some other highlights, e.g. in the future the Berlin castle. The hotel itself is located within an old building, which was reconstructed inside to host a luxuary hotel. 2 modern glass lifts were added, however, the speed is more fitting the old ages. The hotel has 7 floors and it seems that most rooms face the Gendarmen square, which really gives you a great view. The room I had was standard and a bit weired. There was double bed but not much space next to it, was even hard to reach the wardrobe. The desk was more in a corridor style as it was next to the bathroom. The bed itself was very comfortable, I had a good sleep despite that it was possible to hear the noice from the corridor. The bathroom was not as expected. First of all it was very small, as the whole room. The button for the toilet was working but the fixing to the wall was getting loose. Taking a shower was a challenge to get the right water temperature but the worst point was that the door did not close properly, once I finished the shower I had a swimming pool in the bathroom. I guess both issued would have been fixed if I had complained but my expectatiion is that this should not be in the first place. Showergel etc was the usual Sofitel standard, I like it. The fitness room is 24/7 on the 6th floor giving a good access. But the room is small, even at 6am in the morning it was crowed and people had to wait to step on the running belt. Also not many weights in there. View to inside square of the hotel and some offices nearby. The Spa area on the 7th floor is fantastic with 2 Saunas, one dry and one steam. View on the square in front of the hotel and good number of beds to rest. But many shy guests, e.g. they did not follow German style to use the Sauna without clothes which made the whole situation akquared, shoud post clear the behaviour. Breakfast was outstanding, best omelette I have eaten in a hotel and the breakfast room is really nice with roof window and cozy area. Also the staff was really friendly, even at 6:30 in the morning and in general the food was luxuary. I have to mention especially the number of different cheeses available, Sofitel as it best. Not to mention the cake selection. Checkin was strange, I did an online checkin but this did not reach the hotel despite I have received a positive email that I am checked in. Had to do the paperwork again. Checkout was no issue and very fast. There is no business lounge in the hotel. The staff was very friendly. What stays in my mind is that many things are not in perfect shape anymore and the hotel is really expensive. I know it is all about location, location, location, but there are some hotels nearby where I would say you get a better value for money. The hotel itself is nice and certainly luxuary class, but you really have to pay a luxuary price too, for me it is not balanced and hence the downrating.

Centrally located in a fancy area of Berlin. Great staff and services. Cheap underground parking close to the hotel. Excellent bed and pillows. The bath products were amazing. And ... you don't have to smoke in front of the hotel. They really care for clients' needs.

Rooms are nice and designed tastefully. Located in middle of the city, one can feel the pulse of the Germany. Breakfast is very good. Gym is sparsely equipped, while the spa is superior with view over Berlin horizon. Staffs are helpful and friendly.

The best you can experct from Sofitel , few blocs from the Musées , checkpoint Charly , good Germans restaurant nearby , a great chocolate shop at the corner , nearby a metro station bringing you to Ka De We etc...

I throughly enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The service is impeccable and friendly. The hotel location is great: a perfect starting point to explore the city. And it is very reasonably priced. I loved it.

Highly recommended hotel for a business trip in Berlin. Conveniently located in the centre of the city with friendly staff and great amenities. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating, great and reactive service at all times. The bed and room were very comfortable and perfect for ones requirements while on business travel. Highly recommended.

We were very happy with our trip - , convenient location, comfortable room, good dinners, and pleasant and helpful staff (who sorted out our breakfast misunderstanding). We would be more than happy to return and stay again.

This hotel is ideally situated for a weekend in Berlin! We travelled in December it is quite literally right opposite a fab Christmas market, so on arrival it had a lovely feel about it before we even got out of the taxi. Check In was quick and the reception staff were friendly, helping us book the bus tour for the next day. Previous reviews about the room being a little small are correct, however we were up early and back late as we wanted to fit I as much sightseeing as possible, so this wasn't a big issue. The Brandenburg gate is a 10 minute walk, the Riechtag 15 mins. In the other direction the TVs tower was 20 mins walk ( which by the way is fab for breakfast). I will return to the hotel again, no hesitation in recommending the Sofitel.

I have been staying here on a couple of occasions and the impression is always identical: perfect Perfect (and big) rooms, perfect conditions everywhere. Very nice room service , perfect laundry service. Excellent restaurant for all meals and also excellent business facilities. Nothing to add but applause
