Berlin is a magnificent city. My sister-in-law Megan always has said how much she loves Berlin. I now understand, and we have only scratched the surface of Berlin. On the historical side, we saw so many sites. There is so much to see here and two days in nowhere near long enough. We visited the last 200 meters of the Berlin Wall. Interestingly, the …
... that I mentioned just above. The exhibit outside is extensive, going into precise detail about the different forms the Wall took on over the years, including an explanation of how they even destroyed a church in order to build it. There's way too much history for me to go into here and I highly recommend that you take a proper tour yourself and take as long as you need. The Documentation Centre was shut when I was there (always is on Mondays, apparently) and it was a blessing ...
... crazy 'you Australians' are which I was quite proud of.
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 ...
... them, we all have been partying all night for quite a few nights now and we're a little burnt out. We try to get on the metro but realized it's stopped running. We wind up seeing the same Italian couple we met on the metro ride to the wall again as we try to go home. We take a cab and go to bed. The next morning I'm supposed to wake up at 8 but I miss my alarm and run out of bed at 9 worried I may have missed meeting up with the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kempinski Hotel Bristol Berlin
I cannot praise this hotel enough. We got a great deal through Expedia. Hotel is opposite bus stop 109 from Tegel airport. Public areas are impressive and the attentiveness of staff is excellent. The room was on the street but well insulated from noise. The air cooling was just about OK (its was 32 degrees outside). Room was small but well appointed and there was a lovely bath. Toiletries were very nice. The street cafe attached to the hotel was great for people watching with some very tasy ice creams (Rhubarb was my favourite) and you can charge things to your room. The local drink (beer with fruit flavours) or as they say `with Schuss` was most appealing. The cocktail bar in the hotel was welcoming, with most cocktails about 12 euros. The whole hotel was very quiet. We didnt have breakfast in the hotel but found some great local places at half the price. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
This was my first visit to Berlin and I had expected slightly frosty service but I found the staff here excellent and very friendly. Perhaps it had something to do with being upgraded to a rather large suite on arriving! Prices were as expected for a five star hotel although I did baulk a bit at paying 10 euros for a gin and tonic in the bar. I booked a deal using the Kempinski website and got a good deal (42% of rack rate) so it's a good idea to shop around.
I have been to Berlin at least 8 times over the past 3 years. I love the place. I have stayed at different hotels everytime, mainly due to prices at the time. My fave hotel to date is Hotel AM Zoo, the room we had was large spacey and spotless (pity the neighbours were not a bit more respectful with their noise but still. My last visit I stayed at the Kempinski Bristol. The first person to speak to us on the way in was Roger Moore, I though hey if its good enough for 007 its good enough for us.
Excellent hotel with great deals. Very close to the Kudamm for shopping and the zoo. Train station is an easy 5 minute walk away. The pool is great for a city hotel and the staff is friendly.
Booked via internet for $114 US per night. Stayed 1. & 2. June 04. Nice room, good amenities; however, a few items missing at check in. Good service. VERY quiet, bar empty, sidewalk cafe nice. Great location for shopping, etc. Don't pay the rack rate or anything close.
Great service and price
Visited with my daughter just after Easter 2004. Booked through Expedia with flight at incredibly competitive price. The hotel is very centrally located for shopping (bus from Tegel airport stops right outside). Room was very comfortable with a really comfortable bed.
Perhaps the room was a little on the small side for a 5 star hotel.
Service was superb. Concierge obtained tickets for a sold out play with one day's notice.Swimming pool and sauna great too. Highly recommended.
We would stay again without hesitation.
Great hotel,great price
we stayed there a week in december 2003 we got a super deal on expedia..$79 dollars a night if i remember..for that price i would have been happy with much less...but the kempinski was beyond my expecations...1st off the staff were super friendly and helpful..the room was big and clean..even had bathrobes ready for you!..the place had a very cool,welcoming retro feel to it..felt like a grand hotel from the 30s..really loved it...super location too.right on main street close to everything...the only faults..admittedly minor..were that the room was a bit overheated...and the breakfast and restaurant was way overpriced..but that didnt matter anyway because there were tons of good places to eat nearby... all in all i loved the place,and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Excellent and helpful staff
I have stayed at the Kempinski Bristol on two occasions this year - during August and also mid-November. The rooms are nicely appointed and well soundproofed. The best thing is the staff - they are extremely helpful, and the whole place is nice and laid back for a five star hotel. Although it was not cheap, it was good value for money in a good location and I would recommend it to anyone.
Be careful at the Kempinski
This hotel was fine and is within a short walk from the train station. I want to warn you about taking a shower there though. We neither drink, nor take medications that would cause this...but the tub was so slippery that we both fell out of the tub. My husband took a bad spill onto the floor...my fall was broken by the shower curtain. When we were checking out, we told them what had happened but they ignored our statements. We felt they should take steps to insure it would not happen to anyone else.
We spend 3 night at the Bristol Kempinski the location was great, it made it easy to get around and see Berlin, we did not have the Breakfast which is to expensive, The Water in the room is 7.50 euro, take your own The first room was not very nice, I requested a other, however the staff was very friendly and helpful of getting tickets and info.
