Berlin Marriott Hotel
Historical Traveler Reviews Koyo Inn Shingu
Nice hotel, prime location, friendly staff
We enjoyed three nights in a spacious junior suite and access
to the executive floor (10) where breakfast and all-day drinks and snacks
are served. The hotel is located on Potsdamer Platz within walking distance
of e.g. Brandenburger Tor and Checkpoint Charlie, Tiergarden and shops. Food quality and service was good but not perfect. The hotel made two mistakes during our stay (pre-ordered flowers not in room on arrival and delayed room cleaning until 6 pm on the third day) but corrected both to our satisfaction. For a 5 star experience we recommend Schlosshotel and its Vivaldi restaurant in Grunwald. Ole & Pia Bernth.
this was a great hotel!!!! The room was lovelly and spacious, we went for the King size room,and it was a very good size. bathrobes and slippers were also a plus! Bathroom was a decent size and spotlessly clean!! I have stayed in many Marriott Hotels across the world, and being honest have been disappointed with the standard and quality at some of them, this I have to say is one of the best I have stayed at.
Drinks at the bar were very cheap, I recommend the Cosmopolitan as being the best value for money. Breakfast was good not that cheap at 25 Euro per person, but a great selection!
Location wise as mentioned in previous posts, is fantastic. Tucked away for it to be quiet, but 30 secnd walk to the Platz and the impressive Sony Center.
Good price (compared to other european cities), good location and great quality
Great Location and a Great Hotel
Stayed for 2 nights in October, 2004. Very nice, clean, and new hotel in Potsdamer Platz. UBahn & SBahn are steps away, Sony Center is steps away, Brandenburg Tor is a 10 minute walk, you really can't beat the location. Rooms are spacious, very much American Marriott room space standards. Iron and ironing board in room is a plus. Hotel lobby is very spacious, always seats available even at this popular meeting point. Very friendly and efficient staff, security a real plus because you have to use your valid hotel room card to make the elevator work. Didn't use the health club, but my friend said it was adequate. Of course, you pay for all this...I paid 159 Euros/night (does not include breakfast) which is pricey for Berlin, but all in all, I would say it is worth it for the convenience. Berlin is very spread out and being able to save time is paramount when wanting to visit so many sites. Would definitely stay here again!
Perfection In Berlin
This was our first trip to Berlin and we decided to book the brand new Marriott.What a good decision.The room was perfect and the lounge area was as good as I have ever been in.The staff were helpfull and the prices at the bar were much less than I would expect from a true 5 star hotel in a major capital city.If you are going to Berlin then stay at this hotel.
The hotel is simply superb. The staff were excellent, very very friendly and helpful, from the cleaners right up to the manager.
The building itself is perfectly positioned, next to potsdamer platz and all the buzz and excitement from the bars, shops and restaurants, but just tucked up out of the way down a quiet road. Brandenburg gate and Reichstag is 10 mins away by foot. You can also easily walk to Frederichstrasse and it's chic shopping, checkpoint charlie and Unten den Linden. You really couldn't ask for a better location in Berlin.
The hotel itself is immaculate - what you would expect for a brand new hotel - very tastefully designed mixing contemporary and classic rather than going all out for the 'minimal designer boutique' look which is all the rage. A good move as it will age gracefully, where as I fear these designer hotels are going to look very cheap and nasty in 12 months. The rooms were good and big. We had a regular twin - both beds were double so my wife and I had one and my little girl had the other - meaning no roll-away bed was needed. Our room rate included access to the executive lounge on the top floor, where you ate breakfast in the morning with great views across Berlin. The lounge was open all day and you could have tea, coffee, soft drinks as well as beer and wine. In the evening they also had snacks, desserts and small dishes available (think chicken, feta cheese rolled in courgettes, bread, dips, chocolate mousse). All of this was included in the reasonable room rate!
If you are looking for a hotel in Berlin - make sure you check this one out. You won't be disappointed.
Great New Hotel in Potsdam Platz
Really good brand new hotel in one of Berlins' most architecturally exciting settings. Minutes from the Brandenberg Gate and the Reichstag, the hotel is well located. Although they had teething prolems with the elevators, the hotel is very slick and comfortable with great views from the higher floors.
Berlin Marriott is a great choice.
Stayed at the Berlin Marriott for a week in May. Beautiful, new hotel on a quiet, little street in the Potsdamer Platz area. Our room was spacious with two double beds, marble bathroom, and very clean. The best feature is the location. Many dining and shopping options in all price ranges. U-bahn and S-bahn stations across the street from the hotel. Within walking distance of many attractions. Not cheap, but a great value. We were very happy with our choice of the Berlin Marriott.
I stayed here for three days and enjoyed the stay very much. The location is excellent, right at the bustling new Potsdamer Platz with many restaurants and cinemas, in walking distance to Tiergarten, Brandenburger Tor, etc. There are excellent public transport connections as well. Luckily I got upgraded to a room on the executive level. If you are staying in a room on the executive level, you have access to a very nice lounge on the top floor with complimentary continental breakfast, hors d'oeuvres and dessert. You also have free internet access at three workstations in that lounge.
New Marriot Hotel, Berlin
My family stayed for four nights at the Berlin Marriot. It is a wonderful place to stay. The employee's went out of their way to help us. The hotel room service was excellent. The hotel restuarant is a bit on the pricey side for us, but we enjoyed eating in the bar/lounge. The pool and exercise room is very nice. Good equiptment. We would recommend this hotel to anyone that is wanting a little bit of America in Europe. The location can not be beat!!! We will return!
Still in its pre-opening phase, but already very good
Being a Berlin local, I had the privilege to try the Berlin Marriott in its pre-opening phase for a special low rate and am happy to state, that almost everything already runs very well. Nice rooms equipped with standard Marriott furnishings bring a piece of the USA to Europe. Very comfortable beds. Executive Lounge with panoramic views offers very good buffets in the mornings and evenings. Fine and unexpensive restaurant. Small, but well equipped health club with pool and men's and ladies's saunas. Best of all: the hotel's location directly at Potsdamer Platz with its mall, cinemas, restaurants, theatre.

A huge night was had last night at the Traditional German Restaurant. Plenty of singing and dancing and huge amounts of alcohol. It was very hard to surface this morning showing the reason that I didn't post very much information yesterday. Again today we joined a local guide for a drive along the Ku'Damm past the memorial Church. We continued …
We spent most of the day on the bus travelling from Krakow to Berlin. Approximately 600kms. Scenic drive with a few mandatory stops but nothing worth mentioning.
Each tour guide tells you of the history but there is a difference between how the Polish people and the German people tell the story. Despite which version is believed …
... stopped over at her place my backpack will be down to 10kg & the iPad mini. just the right amount for hiking! After having crossed the mountain range on Corse last year I really got hooked on walking my way to places. Not much time to do so under normal circumstances and in Japan it will only be one day hikes, but I am looking forward to it. Although, I will smuggle another traveler into the ...
... just like in Berlin. But they've given me free linen rental and free breakfasts yey! Stockholm feels like a really nice city, Berlin was so messed up, in the sense that its trying to have all these different identities - art, history, re development, tourism, as well as a place to live and work. The different identities are so strong in their own rights, it's like I couldn't gell with the place. Don't get me wrong, I think there's so much to Berlin, I'd have to go ...
... came out we headed off back down stairs, and she remember she forgot her wallet in the toilet stall. I ran up stairs no less than two minutes later, and her wallet was gone!! We spent the next half hour asking all the people who worked there, and looking around seeing if anyone had grabbed it. When we realized that it probably wasn't going to be found, I told Carmen to head outside and call home to get Visa's number and cancel her credit card. As the next hour was devoted to ...
