Beautiful art deco hotel
Amazingly renovated hotel in the heart of Berlin. Mall of Berlin is a 5 minute walk away. The lobby and rooms are very nice with modern touches.
Spacious rooms with views of Berlin. Wide breakfast selection and their croissants are to die for! The best of the best in Berlin!

We arrived into the marble-laden lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Berlin in the center of the German capital at Potzdamer Platz, to be welcomed by an enormous Christmas tree and gingerbread house that had been erected in celebration of the season.

The recent renovation - see below - has left the whole property gleaming, from the marble floors that run throughout to the ultra-shiny bedroom doors lining the warm, wide corridors. We were given a warm welcome at the front desk and offered a plate of German cookies.

Sugar cravings satisfied we headed up to our room on the tenth floor. We were given club level access which allowed us to enjoy drinks, snacks and even meals included in the price of the stay.

The hotel really oozes luxury from the moment you walk through the doors and are confronted by a giant sweeping marble staircase. The newly renovated curtain bar and gorgeously refurbished lounge area make for comfortable seating around the hotel’s lobby.

As I hinted at earlier the hotel has recently undergone a massive renovation which sees the rooms as some of the most luxurious in the city, coupling the timeless elegance of Art Deco with modern facilities like state of the art lighting and USB ports in every room.

The Art Deco theme runs throughout the hotel with solid lines of silver, black, gold and metal running in floor patterns and along walls, and the exterior of the hotel too was based on the Art Deco icon that is the Rockefeller Center in New York.

Everything is pleasing to the eye with no glaring colour clashes or designs. The hotel even smells great with a sweet floral aroma filling the air. After coming n from a long day of touring in sometimes bitterly cold temperatures there was a an enveloping sense of warmth and homeliness in the hotel, despite the big brand name.

Up in the bedroom the luxurious character of the hotel continues with soft shades of purple, grey and gold giving a solid ambience to the space. The bathroom, complete with huge mirrors and underfloor heating - again in Art Deco style - also has a warm and inviting feel. Pink and white marble runs throughout the bathroom giving it a sunny atmosphere on even the most dreary of Berlin winter days, of which we encountered several!

Guests on the tenth floor have access to the club lounge which offers breakfast, hours d’oeuvres / afternoon tea and then dinner snacks. It is one of the most comprehensive lounge offerings I have ever encountered with plenty of variety to satisfy even the most picky of palettes. We tried to have at least breakfast and evening snacks there most days, but it seemed to me that some people never ever left the place!

After a long day touring the capital, it was always relaxing to come back to the hotel. On an evening the Curtains bar provided a relaxing place to have a drink or a snack. On weekend evenings a pianist and lounge singer take to the stage to entertain drinkers. The bar is beautifully designed and not at all pretentious. The singer that I heard took popular songs and made them her own with her powerful yet soulful voice. It was a great way to spend an hour or so while snacking on a tasty burger or plate of “Party” nachos.

A couple of things slightly irked us during the day but these might seem persnickety given the overall high standard of the stay. The cleaning of the room was fine but empty or half empty bottles of soda were left instead of being cleared away... turndown request was also bare minimum and toiletries would not automatically be replaced. I had to request every single day extra towels to be brought and even when I saw the member of housekeeping in the corridor, they still tended to forget my request.

Sometimes offerings in the lounge were not topped up or replaced as often as they could have been. That said, the staff there were also only too happy to oblige and send downstairs for fresh portions of whatever was desired but although the lounge is self-service, the very fact staff are present in the room should see them welcoming guests and asking if they would like drinks immediately. Often there could be very long gaps before I would see a member of staff to help me, perhaps with a high chair or ordering an alcoholic or hot drink. That being said, these are small issues that can be easily worked upon.

The hotel’s location is also excellent: right opposite the Potsdamer Platz station and just a short distance from the Reichstag and the famous Brandenburg Gate. There could hardly be a more fitting place in which to spend your time in the fascinating city that is Berlin.

A great stay in Berlin
We chose the Ritz-Carlton for our New Year's week get-away to Berlin and were happy we did. The location made it easy to see the fireworks, our room was comfortable and well appointed, and the concierge service was extremely helpful. The breakfast buffet was well stocked with a good variety of treats, plus made to order items. The restaurant was still under renovation during our stay, but that was neither here nor there for us. We did have a couple of issues, the biggest being that when we asked for the sheets to be changed, they weren't...again, not a big deal. In short, the hotel is well located, well run, and a great place to call home as we went to the museums, symphony, and opera.

Description

Location
Right on bustling Potsdamer Platz, The Ritz-Carlton, is excellently placed for shopping, museums, nightlife and key attractions like the Holocaust Memorial and the Brandenburg Gate, both of which are in easy walking distance (around 10 minutes). There are malls, cinemas and museums all around (as well as bits of the original Berlin Wall right outside the hotel), and the impressive, feature-studded Tiergarten park is right next door

Style & character
The hotel’s distinctive skyscraper-style building fits perfectly into Potsdamer Platz’s NYC-esque cityscape. The interiors are classic Old Europe, with baroque chandeliers, marble staircases and Art Deco-inspired furnishings lending an aura of monied refinement throughout the public spaces and the rooms and suites.
Rooms are being slowly revamped from the top floors down with a cooler, more modern aesthetic of browns and beiges and slick modernist side tables and desks arranged by London’s GA Designs.

Service & facilities
Things run exceptionally smoothly here, thanks to a well-groomed, professionally-trained, veritable army of staff. Aside from the restaurant and bars, there’s a very comprehensive wellness area in the basement (with pool, whirlpool tub, sauna and fitness centre) and also a Club lounge on the 10th and 11th floors for guests seeking more privacy and the various associative perks (complimentary pressing of two garments per day, free tea or coffee with wake ups, several buffet options throughout the day).
Reception also offers a bevy of services, from limousine hire and dry cleaning, to restaurant and concert and restaurant recommendations and booking. Underground parking costs €5 per hour or €38 per day and there is a full-service business centre.

Rooms
The 303 guest rooms (including 40 suites and one apartment) mostly continue the classic, upscale décor, although they are slowly being refurbished from the top floors down with concessions to tasteful modernity.
The older rooms have soothing beiges and browns, Markus Luepertz watercolours on the walls and refined cherrywood furniture; the newer rooms have more modern furnishings, lighter, more restrained colours and slightly bolder artworks. All offer comforts like featherbeds, touchscreen bedside control panels, heated floors, fluffy robes and slippers, and Asprey toiletries in the spacious marble-tiled bathrooms.
All rooms also come with an honesty bar, daily free bottled water and in-room laptop safe, and most have views of either Potsdamer Platz or across the Tiergarten Park. Suites have additional space for families and business facilities as well as kitchenettes in some cases.

Food & drink
The effortlessly charming Brasserie Desbrosses, decorated in classic rustic French style, offers wonderfully relaxed service and upscale European food and whose locavore commitment stretches to mozzarella and ricotta from Italian water buffalos located in Kremmen, and fish from Brandenburg; the Sunday champagne brunch (unlimited champagne, lobsters, oysters) is justifiably popular with the well-heeled set.
You can find high-end drinks, cigars and occasional live music in the gentlemen's-club style Curtain Club lounge, but the Fragrances Bar, where all the cocktails are based on selected perfumes by renowned manufacturers, is a much more interesting place to spend an evening.
