You don’t automatically associate Berlin with luxury hotels and hospitality – perhaps that’s why it’s such a pleasure encountering the capital’s few exquisite hotels! But how’s it actually like staying at Berlin’s best (and most award-winning) hotel? Join us for 24 hours at The Regent.
Another side of Berlin
It’s hard to say no when you’re invited to stay at Berlin’s best hotel – and one of the best hotels in all of Germany! Regent Berlin has received several nominations and awards throughout the past couple of years (Forbes, Condé Nast etc.), and it’s not hard to see why. Located in Mitte – the center of Berlin – and over-looking the historical Gendarmenmarkt, Regent Berlin is an epitome of timeless luxury and impeccable service. It might not be true Berlin, but it’s refreshing to experience another side of this rough metropolis.
The hotel is in walking-distance to most attractions such as Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, and less than a 30 minute drive from Tegel Airport, which makes it an ideal basis for exploring the capital. But the best part is not the location – it’s the interior. After checking in to a so-called Deluxe Room (from €230 per night), I decided to simply stay in and enjoy the facilities of the hotel. Last-mentioned unfortunately doesn’t include a spa, which you might expect, but there is a sauna, a small gym and a wellness section with massages and beauty treatments on the menu. Accommodation wise, there are 156 rooms in total including 39 suites with French balconies.
Two Michelin stars and Martini’s
The absolute highlight of my stay was the award-winning restaurant, Fischer’s Fritz. Adorned with two Michelin stars, the kitchen creates everything from luxurious breakfast to afternoon tea and French-inspired gastronomy in the evening. And apparently, the signature Martini is quite legendary, too! Chef Christian Lohse is said to be one of Germany’s top chefs always in search of culinary perfection. The menu of the house is €105 whilst a Prestige menu includes either 4, 5 or 6 courses starting from €130.
Regent is a chain of hotels scattered all over the world, so if you prefer a small boutique hotel, it might not be for you. If you, like me, on the other hand, fancy the best service possible and elegant surroundings, there’s no better place to stay in Berlin!
