The Hilton Berlin was the start point for our German Road trip (that page has links to all the hotels, restaurants and places visited).
The hotel isn’t that expensive, but is a proper five-star Hilton – it’s on a quiet street directly opposite the Cathedral.
I checked in two rooms, one as a Diamond (me) and one as a Gold HHonors Member – oddly the Gold was upgraded to a corner suite on the second floor and Diamond to a king room on the executive floor. I sneakily swapped room keys and took the suite. the suite was huge with a large lounge area, separate bedroom, bathroom and toilet. The bedroom felt a little small, but only because it was just a bedroom. The bathroom was also a standard size – all the space was given to the lounge area. But I’m not complaining.
The view from the window was pretty good.
The Executive Lounge was large, nicely decorated and had a good selection of drinks and hot/cold snacks.
As my Son wouldn’t arrive until 22:30, I went for a swim (spa is free for Diamond members) – I was able to wear my room bathrobe and slippers and take a dedicated elevator to the spa. The pool was pretty good and mostly empty at 21:00.
My Son arrived and ordered a burger from the lounge bar – it was quite expesnive at around 25 Euros, but was a good burger.
Breakfast in the first floor restaurant was excellent – sparkling wine included.
We really enjoyed our two night stay and would certainly stay again.
