I stay at Crowne Plaza brand hotels a lot, all over the world, but this was the first time at this Berlin CP. I had a really very good stay; the building itself is not too inspiring in terms of
looks, but the hotel is clean, in very good condition and run very well.
The central location near the Tiergarten and Kurfürstendamm was excellent. KaDeWe is just around the corner and there are several U-bahn stations nearby for easy and quick travel across Berlin.
The room was on the small side but well laid out and I particularly appreciated having enough power sockets available. The rooms and public areas were all very clean. My room at the 7th floor and at the rear of the hotel was very quiet. As a Spire member I perhaps ought to have been upgraded to a larger room.
I had dinner several times in the Wilson's restaurant and this was well above what you would expect in a typical hotel restaurant. Similarly, breakfast was good and indeed better and more varied than you usual get on the continent.
All the staff I came across were very good and eager to be helpful. Indeed, the hard working and friendly staff in this hotel are a big reason for its good score.
I also very much appreciated the excellent speed and reliability of the wireless Internet connection - too many other hotels still don't get this vital part of service right but here in the CP Berlin it was faultless and with great performance.
The air-conditioning is on the noisy side, but still ok.
I very much recommend this hotel and certainly would be more than happy to use it again on a future trip to Berlin. [Less]
