A central location in Mitte -- the heart of Berlin -- close to historical attractions
The Ritz-Carlton is a good pick for visitors that want to stay in the center of Berlin. Mitte is the historical heart of Berlin and provides a great base for exploring the city. Most of the popular sights and political institutions are located within the Mitte district, especially around Unter den Linden, Berlin's primary tree-lined boulevard. Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, and the Topography of Terror are all within easy walking distance. For other areas of the city, there is a U-Bahn station right around the corner from the hotel.
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.
The 303-room Ritz-Carlton, located near Postdamer Platz, is one of the most luxurious hotels in Berlin. The rooms are gorgeous in a classically elegant way, featuring mahogany furniture, rich curtains, plush bedding, and massive marble bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and showers. Modern amenities include touch-screen controls and large flat-screen TVs. Wi-Fi is available, but it comes with a pesky additional fee. The hotel has plenty of amenities, including a large spa, indoor pool, sauna, and fitness center. There are also several dining and drinking options on-site, along with 24-hour room service.
