The Old Classic

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 16, 2008

Located perfectly on the Ku'damm, the Bristol meets every requirement for a 5 star hotel with every imaginable service offered. Over 300 rooms, with 50 suites, along with bars, spas, gyms, an arcade of very upscale stores, and Berlin's first indoor hotel pool (1952). Berlin's undisputed premier hotel before the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Bristol maintains an old world ambience. The plush low ceiling lobby with red leather seating, green marble floors and columns, stylish tables, and the famous Bristol Bar ( the bartender won best in Europe this year from Gault Millau) lead to an efficient desk with full-time concierge. The hallways are plush, the elevators modern, and the rooms small but soundproof with comfortable beds and adequate storage. The marble bathrooms are small as well and were undoubtedly state of the art 20 years ago. Some would call the hotel old-fashioned and reasonably stylish, but hardly distinguished. Of course, we also picked off a significantly discounted internet rate and certainly didn't warrant the best room in the house. Proserpina was less pleased, 5 stars or not - "dated". With the new hotels built in the Mitte district, this facility is no longer in the extreme upper echelon, so that significantly discounted rates off rack on the internet are easily available - search the internet and enjoy 5 stars for considerably less than many other similar class hotels.

The Kempinski family history goes back to 1862 with the establishment of a restaurant and wine store, expanding in the early 20th Century to hotel ownership. The properties were expropriated in 1939 and the family forced to emigrate. One of the very few family members who survived the war, Frederic Unger, opened this hotel in 1952 and the family has steadily increased their holdings of elite hotels over the intervening 55 years.

Very Nice

Great location in the Western part of Berlin near all of the shopping. Unfortunately I spent the majority of the time in the East part of Berlin where all of the history is. Next time I will stay at the Kempinski in that area

The Feel of Old Berlin: I love it!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 31, 2004

The Kempinski is an old tradtional hotel that is situated on the primary shopping and activity street of what used to be West Berlin. This is an excellent place for buisness and touring. The business services are excellent, the food is pretty good as Berlin food goes. (I've never had a great meal in Berlin and I have been there at least 25 times). If you like some tradition like I do, this is a good stop. I wil not rave about it, but I go back time and time again.

Unique Quality: Great location.

Great for business

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 14, 2004

Excuse, I didn't stay there, try to guess why? But my friend spent there two nights and... days in 2003 and he was very, very satisfied. No wonder, he didn't pay his hotel bill :-), he was on business there.
The building of the hotel didn't look very interesting for me to be honest. The locals called the hotel shortly "Kempi".

Unique Quality: Surely the price: over 300 € for "the cheapest" double room (with breakfast :-) and not per week but per night!

My friend told me that Kempinski was luxury hotel at great location in the heart of Berlin with great, great food and facilities for business meetings and... Albert Einstein lived there once.

Directions: At the corner of Kurfürstendamm and Fasanenstraße. More: click here

In the old tradition

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 28, 2004

In for two days on business. Great staff. Got things done right away when requested. Small rooms, but usual for Europe. Clean to a fault. Great location.

Unique Quality: Old fashioned service and style. Clerks don't have pierced lips, noses, eyebrows, or cheeks.

Directions: Center of the main drag.
