Swissotel Berlin Reviews
Excellent hotel at a great location Sep 27, 2011
This hotel is located in a very convenient and strategic location. It is in downtown Berlin, and is smacked in the middled of one of the upscale shopping street of Ku'damm.
It is a short distance by foot from the main station of bus and train, hence making it a very central location.
Swissotel has an unassumming exterior but a very nice interior in its reception area. For the rooms, I was given a quiet room on the 4th floor, which was a pretty large and bright room, with good firm mattress, and also a nice shower with bath tub as well. Although I was given a king sized bed, it came with 4 very soft and lumpy pillows. However this is really depended on whether you like it or not, but the hotel was very considerate and had a pillow menu, whereby you can choose different type of pillow, according to your own liking. For me, I chose the one with pine shavings which was firmer and came with a nice aromatic smell.
As in what is expected from a 5-star hotel, toiletries and large white fluffy towels were provided. There is also a steam iron and hair dryer as well as coffee making facilities and a small fridge. Of course, not forgetting a brand new LCD TV actually sits in the corner.
Wireless internet connection is good and fast but chargeable at Euro 5 for 30 minutes or Euro 10 for 120 minutes. There is also a choice to be charged by the minute.
In addition, just behind the concierge at the reception area, there is also a common PC, whereby hotel guests can suft the internet for free.
I especially like and enjoyed the breakfast buffet spread where there is a great selection available. There are quite a variety of breads, hard breads and croissants, condiments available as well. For hot foods, the usual scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages and my favourite, the meatballs!
The staffs are great, and service overall was excellent. If given a choice, I would certain stay at Swissotel on my next trip.
