Historical Traveller Reviews of Grand Hotel Esplanade
Fantastic hotelfrom Raymonderllo
I absolutely loved this hotel.
ok for the moneyfrom mariusbaa
The location is not too good, if you have to do business in Mitte. It is probably a 15min taxi ride from Brandenburger Tor.
The lobby looks like 1990s, a bit outdated but still ok.
The front desk personell was absolutely professional, nothing to complain about.
The room was located on the 5th floor, a regular room with an enormous window, 2 separate small beds, a desk and a small bathroom. No extra shower, which is a minus in my eyes.
The furniture was alright, pretty bright colors, all in ggod conditions.
The wellness area looks a bit like a 1980s YMCA, but it has all the spa amenities you need for a relaxing hour after work.
The bed waas too soft for my taste.
The breakfast was not too good for a 5star hotel, the buffet was small and the choice of food limited.
Overall, I probably would not stay there again, but it is clean, comfortable and for the rate I got still a bargain.

Nice hotel, terrrible stay...from Helga88
The problems started on the second day when we were accused of breaking the bathroom-door. This made the rest of our trip unpleasant as some of the staff were very rude and kept coming to the room asking questions in a very accusatory tone. It made me feel very uneasy.
The day of departure, we were refused to leave unless we left our home address and credit card number.
We have since received a letter of apology, as their further investigations revealed that we had nothing to do with the damaged door, but our stay in Berlin was ruined. I only remember how unwelcome this all made me feel and how I could'nt enjoy myself because og the staff's behaviour.
Hotel with the best cocktail bar in the world!from Ruthie01
We took a mid afternoon snack at Harry's cocktail bar (not cheap)but a very large and well presented club sandwich by a cheery waiter.
We were very impressed with the spa and used the facility every night, to ease the aching limbs! Be prepared to go naked in the sauna though ; 0 )
Harry's cocktail bar on Friday and Saturday nights is an unforgettable experience! Get there early to reserve a prime seat (be prepared to spend a little cash though!). The cocktail staff are all fantastic! They have a singer from Nottingham and he loves requests and sings a mean ‘Your Song’ by Elton John, so when your there make sure your request it and say ‘Hi’ from Rob and Ruth!
The concierge is worth consulting before a night out, but you have to press him to get you on VIP listings for clubs, the best bet is to consult him in the afternoon, whilst he still has time to make a few calls.
We requested a late check out on the Monday and the hotel allowed us to stay FOC till 3PM, which rounded off our holiday perfectly.
Enjoy Berlin it’s a wonderful city!
Excellent Locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
had a standard comfort zimmer, decent size, bed was disappointing. don't know if this is custom in germany, we booked a double bed, turned out to be two regular single beds placed together, with two SINGLE duvets.
Reception informed me all double rooms are like this and they do not have any double-bed duvets. Unbelievable for a so called 5 star hotel.
Rooms have no in room safe, which I find useful. the bathroom looked cheap, the toiletries provided was disappointing.
Breakfast was OK nothing special, and incredibly oily. pool facilities are ok, there is only one whirlpool for the whole hotel.
Location is OK, It’s beside a river, but you can't see it due to the trees, you can only see the construction site across the river. at least 20 minutes walk to anywhere, would have been nice to be close to some shops. Various buses stop near the hotel but the 100 bus is nearly always full at this stop and the U-bahn is a bit of a walk.
Overall despite what I have written I think this hotel was good value for us at 63 pounds inc breakfast from lastminute. But I wouldn't be willing to pay much more.
Top Local Tips for Berlin
Taxi fares to city centre from Berlin Schonefeld Our taxi fare cost around 30 Euros from Berlin Schonefeld out Tiergarten hotel.
U/S Bahn, busses. Get to know the public transport before you go, buy tickets for the complete holiday, they are good on the underground and the busses.
great little Italian at wonderful price The restaurant 12 Apostles off Savigny Platz is a little hard to find but worth the trip. We had a wonderful table overlooking a little side street filled with hustle and bustle . The food and wine were wonderful as was the service
