I didn't like the hotel but only because I am not a lover of large 40 story hotels, however having said that it was situated close to the metro and public transport, shopping, coffee shops and restaurants

The rooms are very nice, breakfast exceptional but very expensive. You have to pay for internet, computer usage in the lobby, phone service. You also have to pay to go up and sit on the 20th floor sundeck. I did not like all the extra fees.

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz
We stayed at the Park Inn between the 20 and the 22 of September 2004. We had payed $99 per room per night and it was worth every dollar. We got the room at 10 in the morning although check in is much later. The room had been refurbished and included a shower and sink that was part of the room-very different and very stylish. The beds were big and very comfortable. There was a big desk and chairs and everything was harmonius and pleasant and very very clean. The view was absolutely superb from our room on the 18th floor.
It should be noted that the hotel has two kinds of rooms-we stayed in the business class.
Breakfast was nice although it was crowded (the hotel has almost a thousand rooms).
Location is superb: stores, restaurants and the train stations (with underground and trains) is right below. You can't get lost because the building is too high to miss.
We would go back any day.
Where have these people being staying?
I have stayed at the Park Inn before in 2000 and that's the reason I went back, it is a great location for going everywhere and the rooms were very nice. But on reading these reviews I wondered where on earth the other guests have been staying. We went in August 2004 for a weekend break and the room we had - on the 19th floor had just been refurbished, goodness me it was superb. The ensuite bathroom was something I would die for in my own house, a huge glass cubicle, flat screen tv, the beds were very comfortable, the whole decor was tastefully thought out. I would have no qualms about recommending this hotel again and again. I will definitely be back.

Amazing Views of East Meets West
We were expecting a standard Forte Posthouse typ hotel, and what we got was a view hard to beat and a great, if slighltly unusal room in a friendly and efficient hotel.
Facing out onto the TV Tower, we were so high up we could nearly see the Brandenberg Gate! But certainly Unter den Linden, and the Berliner Dom were in view.
Room was modern, clean, but please note that the en suite facilities should perhaps be called 'in roon' facilities! your washbasin is next to your bed, the shower is a screened off cubicle with frosted glass, and the toilet is only behind frosted glass door too! Not the best for privacy admittedly.
All in all, great hotel though for the price, and right on alexanderplatz so excellent for transport links.
Berlin is the most amazing city too!
Not what I was expecting!!!
I've just come back from a 2 night break staying at the Park Inn Hotel in the Alexanderplatz in Berlin.
A huge hotel, however despite the hotel having 37?? floors and over 1000 rooms, it was far from the concrete tower block that I had anticipated. The hotel is being re-furbished and our room was very modern and contempory with mini bar, safe, writing desk etc. Whilst the room was not massive (and I don't think I have stayed in a big hotel room in any city I have visited...) it was more than adequate. Breakfast was great too!!
I would recommend the Park Inn and will definately consider it again when I next plan to visit Berlin.
What a dump!
My husband, son and I stayed here for one night when hotel rooms were tough to find because a convention was in town. It was the single, worst hotel we've ever stayed in. The rooms that have not been renovated were clean, leftovers from the Communist nation. They had incredibly low ceilings, crazy floorboards, no modern amenities. Even worse, a drunk started knocking on our door in the middle of the night.
A great reasonably priced hotel in Berlin
We stayed at the Park Inn Alexanderplatz from July 2 through 8. It surpassed my expectaions for a reasonably-priced accomodation. The breakfast included with the price of the room was lavish and included scrambled eggs as well as cereal and meats of all types. The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. The location was excellent--we loved the walk from the hotel down the Unter Den Linden to the Brandenburg Gate. It took about 25 minutes. The hotel is right next to a large department store with a magnificent food hall and it is very close to the stations for both the S-bahn and the U-bahn. Given that we were traveling with an 8 year old, it was handy to have a Burger King right in the hotel lobby. I think this is a great spot in Berlin for the budget-minded.
Almost a great hotel!
Well, lets list the good things first-
The views from this high rise hotel are fantastic- we looked out on the TV tower, the Reichstag, cathedral, red town hall. Absolutely wonderful.
The room- decent size, very recently renovated, swish germanic furnishings, flat screen TVs etc
The location- the old eastern sector is so much more interesting than the west- and whilst Alexanderplatz may look a bit rough round the edges it had so much character! Alex also has one of the main stations (U,S & D bahn) and you get anywhere in the city very, very quickly.
The price- £60 a night for a 4 star room (including an all you can eat buffet breakfast)! You could easily have to pay twice that in london or New York.
The staff- vey, very friendly and helpful.
Now the bad-
On our final morning someone was able to get through our door and into our room- just as we were getting dressed! He didn't look like a hotel employee and anyway- we had left the "do not disturb" sign on the door. So, either-
A thief is walking around the hotel with a masterkey or...
The swipecard keys work on every door (if he was a guest simply walking into the wrong room)
Either way, this is a serious problem that needs to be sorted out immediately. Other than that, it was a great hotel.
Enjoy your stay in Berlin. It's a fantastic city.
Professional Service and Courtesy
I found the Park Inn to be functional and appealing. As I waited on other members of my travel party in the lobby area, the concierge approached me to see if he might be of assistance in any way, and the air was filled with Cuban music from the audio system. He was interested to assist in the purchace of symphony, ballet, or opera tickets, and also willing to give directions and advice about the transportation possibilities to any location.
I ate in the bar/restaurant on the main level one evening, which I don't normally do (I seldom eat at a hotel restaurant other than breakfast), and found the soup and service to be top-notch. The breakfast room was neat and spotless, with attractive place settings and individual pots of either tea or coffee arranged for guests almost immediately after seating.
The reception desk was always open any hour of the night or day, and several most pleasant service persons were behind the counter at all times. They were never rude or uninterested in my needs. Friendly even, at times. That is certainly refreshing. Late in the evening one can find snacks in the train station at AlexanderPlatz, and an inexpensive Internet cafe with long distance calling just beyond the train station and beneath the tower.
The U-Bahn is only steps away from the rear entrance to the hotel in the platz. During the day, various musicians wailed their tunes to the crowd and strummed their guitars for euros or trinkgeld. Several newspaper stands are in the platz or the train station. A large department store is immediately behind the hotel. Some interesting dog lovers gathered in the afternoons and casually chatted with each other. Although I didn't gamble at the onsite Casino, I managed to find some fun in Berlin. I felt that my week at the Park Inn was convenient, functional, comfortable, interesting, and welcoming.
A good hotel if room "luxury" is not your top criterion
My wife and I spent six nights at the Park (27th floor). The room we had was newly refurbished. It was small, and sparsely furnished, but quite functional. It was kept very neat and clean by the staff.The heating (we visited in March) was very comfortable, and the Park has the unusual feature of windows that open, allowing, via a space between frames, fresh air as you like. Don't know for sure, but it appeared that this might be the summer "air conditioning".The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, almost all speaking at least some English. The location is excellent with public transport a skip and a jump away. The Haekscheker Hof is withing walking distance, which provides a lot of dining and entertainment opportunities. Try "Thai Inside" (very close walk) if you like Thai food. Excellent!!
Two nights on the Alexanderplatz
My cousin, her 13 month old baby and I stayed at the Park Inn on the Alexanderplatz in Berlin March 20-22. Although our room was small it was more than adequate and smoke free. There was a multi-storied parking structure next door. Included in the room rate was the parking and a great buffet breakfast. If one wants fast food there is an entrance to Burger King from inside the hotel. We found the concierge very helpful telling us which U-bahn to catch for the places we needed to go to. He also sold us our U-bahn tickets. The U-bahn entrance is just across the Alexanderplatz from the hotel which is very convenient.

Arrived Berlin early evening and made a beeline for the hotel The Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz. With a long winded name like that you would expect something fancy and it was, forty stories high, and plastic faces on all the staff, not my sort of place at all, still it was all paid for so who was I to complain. …
Berlin is a very busy and enormous city. There is so much construction everywhere. The public transit system is great and pretty easy to use. We turned our rental car in early, because we decided not to drive to Prague int the Czech Republic. It was about a 4 hour drive and equally that long by train. I think the high speed train was 3 hours, but …
We got up early to get to our free tour in Berlin, and after our experience last night we knew how to get there on the S & U Bahns. We walked past a "Free Tibet" protest outside of the Chinese Embassy - one guy was getting hauled off by the Polizei - smart move buddy!

Here's a (not so) little story about my trip to Berlin. : ) As soon as Ingo told me he would let me stay in his flat in Berlin for free, I knew I'd have to go back. I was actually in Berlin about a year ago as one of my day trips from the Baltic Cruise I took with my family. Though I saw a lot, I knew that I could see much more if I spent more ...Berlin, Germany selenelove
Day 57 - GOOD MORNING, My head hurts. We packed our stuff as silent as possible, I figured we could drive a scooter through the room and the drunk girls wouldn't notice, I wanted to be nice to the Portlanders, and tried to sneak out unnoticed. We hopped a morning train to Berlin. In Berlin we will be meeting Jens. He is from Dusseldorf and met K...Berlin, Berlin, Germany tbassplayer
