This Intercontinental Berlin is one of the best hotels to stay here in Germany, a little bit expensive but it can satisfy your needs. I recommend you to stay here because all of your needs to make your vacation glamorous, probably this is what you need and what you want. Not all of the hotels in Berlin offer such a service and other amenities such as internet access and other rooms. And its place is near at the market and historical places where you can take your tour much easy. It is also near at the airport so that you will never take a hard time finding this International Hotel.

This hotel has different themes in different wings. The other is modern, other is traditional. Pick your pleasure! Location can't be faulted. It is easily accessible from TXL airport, take an airport bus or taxi to the main railway station / city centre stop, and walk for 10 minutes or again, take a taxi which are reasonably priced in this wonderful country!
Unique Quality: Two different wings. Also a pool/spa with all the trimmings. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Service was one of the best we have encountered ever. ++++ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Rooms can be had for around 50 EUR per person (2 ppl sharing) so it is affordable. Weekends only. Rates go up in weekdays.
Directions: 10 minute walk from main station
I was there some time ago (about 1990/91 to be precise), so do not take this as a state of the art review! Indeed it may have been close to my first sampling of the Inter Continental brand. Anyway, it was great.
Definitely recommended, so long as you don't mind paying!
Unique Quality: Good location close to K'damm. Also close to the Tiergarten for jogging and recreation, to the Zoo, and to the Zoo station for transport.
I also remember the rooms and service were good, although like almost all luxury German hotels everything "feels" a bit more formal than it really needs to be. Mind you, better that than the other way, or the English/Scottish old fashioned, upper class crud.
I have long regarded the Intercontinental Berlin as one of the nicest hotels in the world. I just love the spacious entrance. I feel exhilarated just walking in.
Unique Quality: The saunas are wonderful. So is the service.
Stayed here for four days for a convention. Everything was organized perfect. The rooms are big, with a shower in the bath and a walk in closet in the bathroom. Breakfast is served in buffet style. The choice of food is so big it is impossible to have a taste of everything in one day.
There are a pool, a fitness center and several bars on the premises. The view on the top floor (14th) is beautiful at night.
Unique Quality: The room has some nice gadgets. The tv-closet can be turned so you can watch tv from the bath. There in a fast internet connection.
If you want a perfect stay in Berlin and you can afford it, this one of the best choices.
Directions: It is located next to the Zoo, near the Gedachtnis Kirche, Bahnhoff Zoo an the Kufurstendam.8,60
I arrived by train on the central staion, taxi to the hotel is € 8,60 (01-01-2007)
Builded in 1958 and renovated in 2003 - actualy a top Hotel in Berlin, specialized on meeting facilities (more than 5000sm)
Unique Quality: The "Hugo Restaurant" at the top Floor with an excellent overview on Berlin, east and west
I never had a dinner in this restaurant, but was invited by the sales manager Jan Frederick to take some pictures.
Next to this subliem restaurant you will find at the basement the Vitality Club - pool, sauna, fitness center. This FC is open day and night - frequently used by intercontinental visitors like the american Business man who like to destress from a Jet Lag.
The pool is open from 6am till 11pm, pool and fitness center is included in the price - so for free.
Generaly spoken and depending on your travel agent you can ask for different installed/equiped rooms - Classical installed or a more modern configuration like network facilities, sanitary facilities like a double shower system.
Directions: The inner city of Berlin - close to the Ku-damm, a shopping district, Tiergarten Park and excellent train/city tour bus/station combinations within walking distance.
We paid £200 for two nights and were not disappointed by this luxurious hotel that is part of a chain.
The building is situated next to the Zoo but our plans to visit it on the Sunday morning before our departure were ruined by rain and bitter May temperature.
We arrived with hand luggage only and felt somewhat out of place as we walked in next to guests who had stepped out of limousines, the doors of which were attended by the hotels' uniformed and white-gloved doormen.
The room was large and well equipped and our young daughter could not wait to get into the pool.
Our accommodation included a magnificent breakfast and it would be quicker to list what was not available than what was.
The staff were attentive polite and helpful and I would not hesitate to go there again.
Unique Quality: Superb breakfast, great facilities and excellent staff.
Directions: Next to the Zoo.
The InterContinental is such a famous feature of the city that the people in Berlin call it familiarly Interconti.
It actually stands out, because of its size (it has more than 500 rooms) and of its chequered colours.
The hotel has everything that can be expected from a top quality hotel, including indoors swimming pool, fitness centre, good restaurants and bars.
It is expensive, of course, but it is possible to save some money by taking advantage of the guaranteed lowest internet prices. The InterContinental Hotels Group has adopted this policy: you book a room in one of their hotels through the official website, then, if you can find any better offer on the internet, they guarantee to reduce accordingly the price they quoted to you.
Unique Quality: My partner and I spent four days in one of the Club rooms. They are located on the 7th and 8th floors. These rooms are very elegant, in a minimalist style, and have some unusual pieces of furniture that are movable, so you can adjust the TV in order to watch it from the bathtub, or change the position of the writing desk (which, incidentally, has power sockets and dataport).
Another privilege is the use of the Club Lounge, with a separate breakfast room, free bar, free business centre to make photocopies or send faxes, separate check-out.
Directions: Close to the famous Zoo
I've been advised to stay in either Alexanderplatz or Friederichstrasse when I am going there with my girlfriend for 3 nights in January.
Can anyone recommend a good hotel or guesthouse in either area? Our budget is about €40 per person per night. Our criteria would be that it is clean, friendly and in a safe area. Ideally with a bit of character but no so important as the other 3.
Thanks a billion in advance!
Hi there, I've been to BErlin many times and have to say that this is an excellent city to visit. As for accomodation, last time I stayed in the Intercontinental BErlin, it's a 5 star hotel that I was able to book for only $110 a night (per room). The point I'm geting to is that if your budget is 80 euros a night then you should be able to book something nice in the centre.
The intercontinental hotel was 3 minute walk from the ZOO subway/rail station and is in the west centre (if I'm not mistaken). Excellent location as far as I'm concerned. Anyhow, you can comute in Berlin very easily by Ubahn or Sbahn or even buses.
Check www.hotwire.com for hotel rates. they usually give you good rates. You simply choose location, #of starts and it gives you a bidding price. You then pay and get the name of the hotel after. I've had a 95% satisfcation with the site.
