Sofitel Berlin Gendarmenmarkt

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Nice hotel located just off a square in central Berlin. Would stay here again. Great value.

We LOVED the fitness center! Also, there were plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby as well as historical buildings. It was wonderful!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Very nice hotel, quiet and well-kept. Personnel is attentive and helpful. Location can no be better close to all the attractions. Highly recommended.
