96 Hours at the Adlon Kempinski Berlin
Berlin in February, what does that mean? Exactly “Berlinale”. The Berlinale is one of the most important film festivals worldwide. So this means everybody who is interested in lifestyle, movies, food and hotels is going to Berlin. Of course the best way to stay in central Berlin is at the historical Hotel Adlon which is located on Unter den Linden, the main boulevard in the central middle district, at the Pariser Platz, directly opposite of the Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial.
After a warm welcome, the very nice receptionist showed us our room. Honestly, we have expected an “Executive Room”. However, we received one of the best suites I ever stayed in so far. This suite included a separate entrance hall, living room, bedroom and maybe the best of all: a wonderful bathroom with a steam shower.
The beds were one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. The only thing I could compare them to would be the clouds.
The view was breath taking. Multiple times during our stay we just couldn’t believe how beautiful it was because most people take pictures from the Brandenburg Gate in front of it. Ok why not. But we had the pleasure to live in a Brandenburg Gate Suite with view to the Brandenburg Gate. So every time we looked out of the window, we saw the tourists in front of the Brandenburg Gate taking pictures.
The SPA is like an oasis in the middle of Berlin. Nobody would expect to find a spa underground, beneath the historical hotel but this is the case. Every guest can enter the spa area through a separate elevator from the Rooms.
The spa offers a variety of saunas as well as steam baths, a Jacuzzi and a vast indoor pool. It is definitely a place to re-enter yourself and enjoy pure relaxation.
We would like to thank the Kempinski Hotel Adlon for the upgrade to a junior suite as well as the welcoming champagne. Our above written review hasn't been influenced.
