Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Elegant, classic hotel centrally located near the Brandenburg Gate
  • Luxurious rooms with four-poster canopy beds and fresh cut roses
  • Modern touches include free Wi-Fi and bedside control panel
  • Marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and heated floors
  • Indoor swimming pool
  • Modern fitness center
  • Adlon Day Spa offers full range of treatments
  • Several dining options, and 24-hour room service
  • Spacious, inviting lobby with plenty of seating

Cons

  • Restaurant is extremely pricey
  • Some complaints that the surrounding area isn't lively at night
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Hotel Adlon Kempinski is an elegant, classic hotel with a rich history. Its predecessor was one of the most popular hotels in Europe through World War II, hosting guests such as Charlie Chaplin and Josephine Baker. The original building was demolished, but after the fall of the Berlin Wall, a building inspired by the original was built on the same location near the Brandenburg Gate. This 382-room hotel still attracts A-list clientele -- this is where Michael Jackson dangled his baby son from a balcony in 2002. Luxurious rooms have heavy drapes, four-poster canopy beds, plush couches, and fresh cut roses. Marble bathrooms offer soaking tubs and heated floors. These inviting rooms, combined with the hotel's impressive amenities -- an indoor pool, full spa, fitness center, and variety of restaurants -- make this one of the best picks in Berlin.

 Location

Steps from the Brandenburg Gate

The location of the Hotel Adlon Kempinski is ideal for visitors -- right in the center of town and next to the Brandenburg Gate. It's within walking distance to popular sights such as the Holocaust Museum and Unter den Linden Boulevard, Berlin's historic tree-lined street. With direct connections to the railway, underground, tram, and city bus readily available, access to the entire city is a breeze. There are several good restaurants in the area and both the Reichstag and the Tiergarten are a short walk away.

Berlin is the capital and largest city in Germany best known for its lively nightlife (restaurants and bars stay open late), cafes, museums, palaces, street art, and numerous historic sights.
