– A direct view onto the Brandenburg Gate

Berlin’s original Grande Dame is still the cream of the crop and hasn’t lost an ounce of its glamour over it’s 109 year history.

The Adlon 2.0 remains faithful to the original building’s designs and looks right at home alongside landmarks such as the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate, so if you’re in love with the opulence and aesthetics of the early 20th century; it’s the Berlin hotel for you.

For a taste of old world luxury and service, do yourself a favor and book the Hotel Adlon Kempinski. There’s nothing else quite like it.



The Ritz-Carlton Berlin

The Best Luxury Hotels in Berlin

Stay for :

– Top notch location for business travellers in Berlin

– Unique architectural design

– Home to some of the most innovative bars in the city. Perfect for networking.

– Very family friendly. There’s Mercedes Benz Peddle pushers for the kids.

– Overlooks all the greenery of the Tiergarten

This towering skyscraper on Potsdamer Platz looks like it’s been plucked off the streets of New York, but that’s where the similarities with the Big Apple end. Once inside, you’re treated to baroque chandeliers, grandiose marble staircases, and an Art Deco charm that would fit right into any of the Grand Dames of the continent.

Top of the line business amenities and a central location in one of the busiest centres in Europe makes it the ideal hotel for the suit and tie warriors.

But that doesn’t mean the leisure crowd are left behind. The Ritz Carlton’s bars and dining areas are among the most innovative in the city. Fragrances, lets you sample cocktails based on perfumes from renowned brands such as Armani and Guerlain, the gentleman’s club style Curtain Club is an ideal place to network with the city’s well heeled, and the meals from the Brasserie Desbrosse’s open kitchen are deserving of Michelin star status. They just haven’t wizened up to it yet.

The spa is located in the bank’s former jewel vault, the cashier’s hall is now a ballroom, and there are four historical suites to choose from including one carved out from a bank manager’s former office.

If it all sounds wonderful and intriguing, just wait till you see it in person.
