Historical Traveler Reviews Intercontinental Hotels Berlin
5 Star excellence
Have just returned from 3 nights at the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin and everything about it was just fabulous - especially considering the price for a superior room of just 128 Euros per night, including breakfast! As noted by other correspondents the breakfast at the Inter' is amazing and will certainly set you up for the entire day. Our room was extremely comfortable with a whole host of mod con's including the swiveling TV module so, if the fancy takes you, you can watch TV whilst taking a bath. The staff were consistently helpful and polite and the Spa was a relaxing haven in which to unwind after a days sightseeing.
The Hotel is centrally based and I would have no hesitation in recommending it for a base to stay whilst visiting Berlin. As an aside , if you want to be entertained go and see the Blue Man Show at the Potstammer Platz Theatre - also highly reccomended.
Great situation, great hotel !
My wife and I spent a week's holiday here in August 2004 and booked at a superb room rate on the Intercontinental website.
A marvellous hotel, very central location, and a superb building with a cavernous entrance hall. We stayed in the newer of the two towers and had a wonderful room. A minor problem with the air-conditioning caused some noise on the first evening but this was fixed the next day. All the staff were most helpful, all spoke impeccable English but surprisingly the concierge staff seemed to be a bit unhelpful at times, possibly because they always seemd to be sending faxes and answering telephones.
Breakfasts are stunning with a huge range of hot and cold buffet, and the cocktail bar was a nice oasis in the evening. Perhaps too quiet for some, this being August.
I highly recommend this excellent hotel.
Good for trios/families
There were 3 of us in Berlin, myself, my teenaged daughter and her teen aged girlfriend. After being frustrated with trying to find connecting rooms or even same-floor rooms in Berlin we tried the Interconti (the Berlin nick-name) and found a great rate on a junior suite. The crescent shaped room was large and gave me a comfortable (!) roll-away around the corner from the giggling girls. We only needed one room instead of two rooms. I felt better having the girls close. They loved the hi-tech room and huge bath with a heated floor and 3-way marble shower. We all had enough space and privacy and the breakfast was outstanding - even in a city of great breakfast buffets! Add a location that was quiet but close to the center of the Ku'damm and this was a great place in Berlin. Highly recommended!
Very busy hotel
I've just come back from a convention at this hotel. My executive room was very modern, with a wonderful bathroom and a TV-column you can turn to either watch TV in the room or in the tub.
Breakfast service was a bit slow but assortment is good.
This hotel is very busy with a lot of conventions and many political visits. It is well situated near the Zoo and KaDeWe.
Very nice hotel
I just returned from three days here and want to recommend it. I normally use Le Meridian but they don't have one in Berlin so...plus I got three days for the price of two here via Expedia so it seemed worth a try.
Overall very impressed. Had a superior room on the 10th floor with a nice view of the Tiergarten. Room was spacious, with small lobby, dressing area, bathroom with separate shower & toilet, plus large bedroom with a good desk and chair under the big windows. Nice comfy sofa and easy chair also. Staff very always cheerful and helpful, good food, nice sauna/health area, good room service (they thought it great fun bringing this Englishman afternoon tea, I could tell!). Even the room broadband connection had a connection cable thoughtfully provided in the desk drawer.
The Tiergarten is around the back so handy if you are a jogger. The windows are nice and big, so a great room to work in and good blackout curtains too.
Minor gripes; pillows far too soft and there were only 2+1 spare for a kingsize bed; I wish I got the Club floor; the room was a smoking one; the daily fee for broadband at e20 was VERY HIGH!!
Apart from these very happy - have no hesitation recommending this hotel or using it again.
Did not want to go home!
I stayed here for 3 nights in a Junior Suite on the Club Floor. The room was huge: bedroom, living area and table at which 8 could dine. The bathroom was great, with lots of storage area, bath and large walk in shower. The view from the 8th floor was great. Luxury! Well worth the extra money. Standard rooms looked good also, with generous sized bathrooms.
The Club lounge was calm, with excellent service, and snacks throughout the day. Good choice at breakfast, and the staff will prepare meals at request. A good range of complimentary drinks.
Pool facilities, especially the impressive sauna (free to Club guests, EUR15 to others), are excellent.
I would go to Berlin just to stay in the hotel!
Going To Book Again Soon
Stayed first week of March. Superior rooms. I had double, associates had twin, same no-smoking floor. I had pleasant canal/open view. They had poor lobby rooftop view, but 2 beds. Rooms were clean, well furnished. Swivel-about TV gimmick thing amusing, but 59 multinational mostly news stations - YAWN!!. Bathrooms large. Room service good and V. cheap. Minibar expensive. Lobby huge, bar not cheap - expense account stuff. Car Ferry sort of duo nightly provided entertainment for the very drunk!. Breakfast amazing. Never eat same thing twice all week. Location Good. Not too far from subway. I liked this hotel very much, and fully intend to stay there again later this year. Berlin is transformed since last there - b4 wall came down.
Beware don't go for 2nd floor
Hotel has to towers, try to stay at the modern tower recently built.
The rooms in the old tower are relatively small and dark. Had junior suite which I cannot recommend (unless you have kids you want to keep separate at night) since its just two rooms with a wall in between with a door where the two small windows are. Room was on 2nd floor above the bar. Extremely noisy until 2 - 3 a.m. . Staff would not react when I complained about the noise. Nice swimming pool & spa though. Location is great - near Zoo.
Best IC there is.
This is finest InterContinental I have ever been, I have been to about 10. The Executive Room we got had a bathtub in the middle of the livingroom separated by a window, the furniture were top-notch, the layout of the room great and the room was very clean. We also tried the room service, and suprprise surprise, from A to Z the service personnel handled everything with 5-star quality and the food and dessert were brilliant and good value. Everyone was very friendly and smiling and they were always seeing that everything was fine. There is also a great fitness center in the premises, with gym, swimming, sauna, bar etc. The bar has also non-alcoholic, "fitness"-beverages. The lobby is worth seeing, too. There is lot of small lights on the ceiling, the floor shines and the front desk is very, very long (and straight.) The lounge bar was also decorated tastefully.
Well worth the money.
Simply one of the best hotel I have been!!

... point we had to venture outside. We walked from our apartment to the local underground station and were covered in snow by the time we got there. We headed for the East Side Gallery... It is a 1.3km stretch of the original Berlin Wall covered in murals both original from 1989 on the east side and the want to be's on the west side. The snow was still falling and the wind gusts were getting stronger so we did not spend much time at the wall. ...
... So they don't want to make a big deal of hitlers bunker. We walked around the huge building that was the Luftwaffe headquarters during the war. The place is massive yet somehow during the war it survived intact even considering it was a strategic war target. It fell on the east side of the wall so the soviets used it as their ministry of ministries. From here there is a section of the wall still remaining. We then went onto ...

On Monday we got up and went on the big 6 hour walking tour that basically covered everything in the city. We started at the Old New Synagogue and ended up back at the Brandenburg Gate. On the way we learnt about the kingdom of Prussia that dissolved at the end of WW1, a lot about the Nazis and soviets and how life was in East Berlin. We also saw the spot Hitler's bunker used to be (now ...
