For many, Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin is the best hotel in Berlin - period. This title is generally well-accepted when we take into account that this luxury hotel is located next to Brandenburg Gate, Berlin's most emblematic landmark, right at the beginning of Unter den Liden, among Berlin's most beautiful and prestigious avenues. The views enjoyed from Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin include Brandenburg Gate and Pariser Platz to the west and Unter den Linden to the east (west and east have a deeper meaning in Berlin rather than just saying left or right). Take Albert Einstein's suggestion (and ours too) and ask for a room facing Pariser Platz and the unmistakable Brandenburg Gate. In case you're unable to secure a room or suite with a view, book a table at Restaurant Quarré - weather permitting, a table outside will offer the best views. Learning about Adlon's rich history is like understanding Berlin over the past 100 years: this 5-star hotel operated as a militar hospital and was partially destroyed by a fire in 1945. In 1997, Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin reopened its doors and since then has been one of the best hotels in Berlin and Germany. Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin is exceptionally well-located in the Mitte district, near some of Berlin's most popular attractions such as The Holocaust Memorial, Reichstag and Checkpoint Charlie.

Choosing to stay at Rocco Forte Hotel De Rome isn't just for those looking for a luxury hotel in Berlin - staying here means witnessing first-hand Berlin's rich past. Apart from Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, Rocco Forte Hotel De Rome is the only Berlin Hotel occupying a historic building (it used to be a bank). The building itself, dating back to 1889, is a classical example of the Wilhelminian architecture of the Prussian times (luckily it was spared during the war bombings) and is situated in one of Mitte's most beautiful squares: Bebelplatz. Each of the 109 rooms and 36 suites of Hotel de Rome are impeccably done up in colourful tones and some have balconies with views onto 18th century St. Hedwig's Cathedral. As the temperatures start to rise and the sun shining, the seasonal Rooftop Terrace is the place to enjoy magical views of Berlin's most famous landmarks. Last but not least, De Rome Spa is the ideal place to relax or to recharge batteries - the 20-meter long indoor pool certainly caused an impression on us. To sum it up, Rocco Forte Hotel De Rome is a flawless 5-star hotel at the very heart of the Mitte district and a top hotel recommendation for your upcoming Berlin stay.

Speaking of Berlin's best hotels and skipping The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin would be just impossible. First things first: expect charming views onto Potsdamer Platz or Tiergarten Park from most of the hotel's traditionally elegant rooms. Service at The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin combines old fashioned luxury and modernity. Great position in Mitte (Tiergarten) neighbourhood, close to many coffee shops, restaurants and steps away from futuristic Sony Center (Sony's European headquarters).

Being one of Berlin's most upscale avenues, it comes as no surprise that there are several hotels around Kurfürstendamm. From all the hotels in this area, Hotel Zoo Berlin is the most famous one due to its rich history dating back to 1911, the year it opened its doors. This Berlin design hotel features rooms with interesting views onto Ku'damm (short for Kurfürstendamm) and the Protestant Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church. Room tip? Go with the Panorama catehory and the views are guaranteed.

With an exceptional location at the hearth of Mitte, Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin is a high-quality hotel with unobstructed Berlin Cathedral views. As if being surrounded by many of Berlin's top attractions wasn't enough, Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin has its own attraction: a somehow unexpected, large aquarium (25 metres tall) that leaves no one indifferent - some rooms face this one-of-a-kind aquarium directly (we're pretty sure you weren't expecting that to be your Berlin hotel view) as others face the splendorous Berlin Cathedral and the Spree River. A good thing about Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin is that many rooms come with private balconies, which is always a nice touch. The hotel is only a stroll away from Hackescher Markt’s fashionable shops and Museum Island.
