Berlin was a real mixed bag. It is impossible to ignore it's history which dominated European and World affairs for a century. There is so much see and do regarding the events that occurred and reminders are everywhere. One of the most interesting vists we made was to a 'ghost subway station' called Norbahnhof. This station sat East of the Berlin …
... vegan cafe to have lunch. It was so yummy. At first marc was a little skeptical but I think he enjoyed it in the end. He is obsessed with cheese and milk so it's a little hard for him to do the vegan thing, but he is happy to try. The entire place was vegan. It was called vux cafe and was nicely furnished with bits and pieces of old furniture. It had high ceilings and lots of light and was just so comfortable. We each had a salad bagel with hommus and a ...

During the bus ride home I spent some time thinking about what a scary place the world can be, and how lucky and grateful I am for everything. I ended the day downstairs at Igel’s café, he is a real sweetie, and the food and wine were wonderful…an almost perfect day in Berlin.
Be well and happy my dears. Ciao,

... checking out the sights. Checkpoint Charlie was fascinating. Numerous information signs give the history if it all, and of course, the checkpoint is there with the American flag flying in the middle of Berlin. It was surprisingly emotional. Having heard about the Berlin Wall while growing up and then distinctly remembering when it came down and all that represented, I did tear up some. The kids even got into it.
We also went to the museum of ...
... wall through Berlin. Again, it was special to see all of this and we were impressed about Germany owning its history, especially since that wall was in full operation merely 25 years ago. During that night we also saw a section of the death strip. There were actually two parallel walls, one big one, a space of 50 - 100m and then another. The second signalled West but they were all built on Eastern ground (so the west would have no business interfering with it). The space ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Berlin Gendarmenmarkt
Great location and design at a reasonable price
Hard to beat the location -- both for dining options and proximity to the key sites. Room: beautiful and comfortable (though we did have an upgraded room so size was reasonable). Fitness and wellness area: gorgeous. Room service: provided by Restaurant Aigner (one of the best in Berlin) and delicious.
Only complaint -- lack of high-speed Internet access in the rooms. Yes, maybe if you have a European cell phone you can figure out how to sign up for the Vodafone service, but for this American it was too much of a challenge.
My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in this excellent hotel. First off the location couldn't be better you are within walking distance of many of the best attractions Berlin has to offer - Museum Island , The Reichstag , Checkpoint Charlie etc and on your doorstep are some of the city's best restaurants Vau , Borchardts and even the hotel's own Aigner is good.
A great choice
This is a fantastic hotel. My family stayed here for 3 nights in February 06 to celebrate my birthday and we all loved it. The rooms are spotless (with bed linen changed every day) and spacious. Breakfast is excellent (order one of their fruit juices) and keeps you going for most of the day. With its location just a few minutes from Unter den Linden, you have most of the sights within walking distance. And the staff is nice and friendly. If we visit Berlin again, we will definitely choose the same hotel.
I read the raving reviews about the Sofitel, so I booked a one-night-stay at this hotel. Knowing the superb Sofitel in Munich, I had high expectations. I booked a Deluxe Romm (King bed) at a reasonable rate via sofitel(-), but was quite dissapointed, once they showed me the room (6th floor). Very small, no working area and no bath-tub (although nice shower).
A very nice hotel
i spent 4 days at dorint and i enjoyed my vacation. the staff is so friendly,the rooms are not so big, but lighting system is so cool and also the bath is well furnished. the location is perfect to visit all the major berlin attractions, and the luxury shopping area of freidrichstrasse with la fayette and other fashion department stores is just around the corner. A very good choice!
Looking forward to a return trip
The décor in the rooms has to be seen to be believed. A ridiculous number of textures and colours vie for your attention but do work wonderfully together to create a sense of decadence. Make sure you get breakfast included in your deal - it's just great. An added bonus is the Dorint's proximity to the best bar in Berlin, Newton, and its sister restaurant, Lutter und Wegner.
Unique and Fun
I just went to Berlin for the first time and am delighted I chose this hotel. It is intimate yet full-service and in a great Mitte location. The rooms are quite stylish - try to stay on the fifth floor where you have a terrace. Breakfast is fabulous - certainly worth the money. Don't forget to check out the wellness room on the top level - talk about ultra cool! The only reason why I didn't give it the highest rating is because the service was a bit odd at times - not bad, just different. Nonetheless, I would certainly stay there again.
Great location and design! Minimalistic understatement that reflects intelligent luxury. Helpful and friendly stuff.
The views are spectacular. We were lucky to be upgraded to the room on the 5th floor where one of the solists of the Pet Shop Boys had stayed, as we learned later on from one of the linked articles on Berlin.
All the best shopping and restaurant options are just around the corner.
Nothing to complain about, which happens very rarely!
Nice rooms. Excellent bathrooms. Breakfast buffet is very expensive (€23), but worth it if you have a lot of time to spend on breakfast. Otherwise it is better to have breakfast delivered to your room. Nice fitnessroom and sauna.
Excellent hotel opposite the most beautiful square in Berlin. Rooms are fairly spacious, and very clean. Excellent breakfast and cool fitness center.
