Name: Waldorf Astoria Berlin
The Waldorf Astoria Berlin offers timeless elegance, classic style and a very luxurious stay with excellent facilities.
When ticking off European cities, make sure that you don’t ignore Berlin; with a truly fascinating recent history and a thriving art scene and some sensational modern architecture too, it’s a great destination for a weekend away soaking up some culture. For luxury and elegant retreat, with fabulous facilities and unparalleled service while you’re in Berlin, look no further than the Waldorf Astoria Berlin. It couldn’t be easier to get to Berlin from London, direct flights usually take about an hour and 50 minutes, though with British Airways the flight time is an hour and 40 into Tegel Airport, it is then only a 15-minute drive to the hotel.
The Waldorf Astoria Berlin is a graceful urban oasis; a beautiful Art Deco-styled building with panoramic city views. It is situated in the heart of Berlin’s City West, practically on the doorstep of Kurfuerstendamm, Berlin’s legendary, luxury shopping boulevard. The facilities are first-class and include only Guerlain Spa in Germany, a fitness centre, a range of excellent restaurants and lounges (more on those later), business facilities and even a vast, stunning ballroom. The hotel is ultra-elegant, the Art Deco nod continues inside and there is a modern, luxurious feel.
Rooms & Suites
There are 232 Guest Rooms, Suites and Apartments at the hotel and with 16 variations of rooms I’m certainly not going to list them all, but would point out that the suites are the highest in Berlin with panoramic city views! The facilities in all rooms include at a minimum a king-size or twin beds with 300 thread count sheets, a dining table, chaise longue, work desk, 40-inch LCD TV with Apple TV® technology, Nespresso coffee machine, air conditioning, minibar, safe, high speed internet access and a marble bathroom with exclusive cosmetic products. If your budget will allow, the Presidential Suite, Twin Ambassador Suite or the Twin Tower Suite are stunning suites built around those epic panoramic views of Berlin.
Restaurants & Bars
You’re in for a treat when dining at the Waldorf Astoria Berlin; all-day dining is available at Restaurant ROCA, signature drinks and light snacks at 1920s-themed Lang Bar, afternoon tea in the renowned Peacock Alley and high tea at the 15th floor Library Lounge. All are beautiful spaces in their own right, serving delectable cuisine and drinks with impeccable service.
Pool & Activities
The spa at the Waldorf Astoria Berlin is something a little special, the only Guerlain Spa in Germany, it offers a wide range of soothing body, face, and massage treatments and includes an indoor pool, thermal zone and a very well-equipped fitness centre that also offers yoga, personal training and Pilates. The signature treatment is the perfect indulgence after a cultural day out, Guerlain has developed ‘Beauty Revelation’ exclusively for Waldorf Astoria Berlin; you’ll leave refreshed and revitalised. You are well situated for exploring Berlin, the previously mentioned Kurfuerstendamm shopping boulevard is a must, in addition, there are some 50 theatres, three major opera houses, over 170 museums and countless galleries to amuse you; you’ll need that treatment after this lot! For an insight into the city’s history, walk along remnants of the Berlin Wall, visit Prussian royal palace and even stand in the room where the Holocaust was planned.
Try and get a room on one of the corners, those views are even better and don’t forget to spot the zoo, you can even see the animals sometimes!
To ensure a sophisticated stay with flawless service with you visit Berlin, look no further than the Waldorf Astoria Berlin.
