Very nice hotelfrom tallman
Grand Hotel in a great locationfrom redin63
Expensive but still good valuefrom Trooper29
Two-tiered booking systemfrom Fool_me_once
So keep this in mind if you choose to stay here: if, as you look for your room, you come to the end of a regular-looking hotel corridor, pass through a lounge, and into a narrow, dark and musty corridor with doorways just about your height and barely wide enough to fit your carry-on luggage ... well, you have been given a discount special! Turn around immediately and return to the front desk, where you will be charged an extra 30 Euros per night for a "renovated" room that, upon inspection, hasn't been renovated anytime in recent memory, but is at least cleaner and does not smell.
Our first room was very small, the upholstery and lampshades(!) were stained, the furniture desperately needed to be refinished, and it had a very strong, musty odour (mould perhaps?) At the front desk we were told that because they were fully booked, they could only offer us another room in the same grade, or a "renovated" room for an extra 30 Euros per night. (Fully booked? But they could still find a better room for an additional fee? I'm not sure that I follow that logic, but whatever.) After our overseas flight we really didn't feel like arguing, so we just paid the extra - no way to say now if the other room in the same grade would have been acceptable.
The second room, pictured here, was much better. It was larger, cleaner and updated (though the washroom was clearly not renovated, as I've noted in my pictures). I would have been perfectly happy if we had been offered this to begin with, and would have given the hotel a higher rating, but I consider our treatment unacceptable.
Having said that, I still ranked this hotel a 2 rather than a 1 because the breakfast buffet was fantastic, and the location was very convenient for sightseeing. The room service was also quite good, and the staff friendly and (for the most part) helpful.
This is a Westin???from willphillipson
An elegant hotelfrom leonardoWales
Room was adequate and well serviced- the only complaint was the lack of pillows.One chair in a double room does not make sense. The public areas were attractive, warm and welcoming.
ALL staff were friendly and helpful and made our trip very enjoyable.
The breakfast served would put many high class establishments to shame - choice, quality, comfort, presentation and service could not be faulted. After that, who needs lunch?
We will definitely be returning to Berlin and the Westin Grand
Lovely hotelfrom myreviewsIrishabroad
Wonderful Weekend at the Westinfrom buzzby
We arrived early Friday morning and 1 of our 2 rooms booked was ready for check in, which was very convenient. This was the Premium Deluxe Courtyard room. It is traditionally furnished with a queen size heavenly bed. The room was apx. 340 sq. ft. but big enough for a desk & chair and a comfortable club chair. The bathroom is small but adequate with good lighting, hair dryer, several mirrors and a make up mirror. It is certainly not a super deluxe bathroom but comfortable.
The lobby of the hotel is beautiful with a grand staircase and elegant atrium. The lobby bar has a grand piano and a pianist every night from 5:00 to about midnight. it's costly but a great place to relax for a drink and a cigar.
The staff was very responsive and friendly and the concierge took care of all our reservations and touring needs.
The second room we booked was a Grand deluxe room and was not to be ready until after 3:00 PM. However, we were told that we would be given a double upgrade to a junior suite. Also a traditionally furnished room. it had the same bathroom as the Premium room. This room was much larger with a separate living room, couch, desk & chair and club chair. The bedroom area had a king bed with a closet and dressing table. The room also faced the courtyard and it was very quiet which was great.
The pool & spa area are excellent with a hot tub, full bar for snacks, sauna, showers, infinity pool, etc.
Buffet breakfast was included in our rate and was outstanding. German breads are incredible. The cheese cart was an unusual breakfast treat as was the free flowing champagne, The cost of this buffet is 26 euros if it is not included in your rate. A la carte breakfast can be had at the lobby bar.
I would rate this hotel as an excellent 4* property.
WE LOVED IT.from NewZealand-7
