The plain vanilla exterior gives little indication of what lies within. Located practically across from the Berlin Exhibition grounds, nestled at a city lake, the Seehof is a gourmet's treat.
Fruitwood panelling, chandeliers and mirrors suggest a strong French influence. The covered plates that come out of the kitchen confirm that a master chef de cuisine is at work here. Excellent food at reasonable prices. The wine list is extensive - the desserts are mildly spectacular.
WIth marbled bathrooms and Regency decor the bedrooms, while not large, are certainly comfortable. Overall service is laid-back.
Unique Quality: The pool and solarium feel like a glass-enclosed extension of the lake outside. On fine days, a lake terrace dining room is the perfect location for a quietly elegant outdoor lunch.
Overall, the Seehof feels more like a country manor than a hotel near the heart of a metropolis. For that reason it books quickly at Berlin exhibit times.
Directions: Near the Witzleben S-Bahn stop. A very short walk from Messedamm/ICC.
In 2002 and 2003 I had to make several business trips to Berlin. During most of these I stayed at the Seehof, because it is so conveniently near to the ICC and Berlin Messe.
The hotel is not very big, and the rooms are smallish, but nicely decorated, with marble bathrooms.
I like very much the restaurant/breakfast room, with its romantic decorations, and the large windows with a view of the lake and of the Funkturm (a radio tower that dates back to 1929).
The hotel is normally full and applies full rates whenever there is a big event at the ICC, but at other times it is possible to get big discounts.
Unique Quality: The first time I went there it was because it's just 500 m away from the ICC. Afterwards, the first reason remained valid, but I also appreciated the other advantages of this location. Almost all the rooms face the lake Lietzensee, which is surrounded by a park. The restaurant has also a large terrace by the lake, which is very pleasant in the good season. Retiring here after the hustle and bustle of a busy day is great.
In addition, the Charlottenburg palace is just a 10 minutes' walk from the hotel.
Directions: By the Neue-Kantstrasse
