We stayed here for Halloween weekend. 30th Oct - 02 Nov. The hotel is located right across the road from the central station in Berlin so it was perfect for us. We flew in to Schönefeld T5 from Manchester and got the train straight to hotel which was so easy and cheap instead of paying for taxis! We checked in and they took a €50 deposit which we weren’t aware of but it wasn’t a problem and I have received it back. Then we were asked if we wanted a room with a bath or a shower which I thought was a really nice touch to our check in. We chose shower and the room didn’t disappoint. The room was really nicely decorated, spacious, great view of the river and felt really luxurious. The beds were really comfortable apart from that they were separated in the middle which was slightly annoying but apart from that we slept really well; never heard any noise in the halls and the room has controls for the temperature which was nice. They did tell us the spa was still open but we didn’t get chance to have a look. We did want to have breakfast in the morning but it was really expensive €25 per person is just too much when they have a pret-a-manger and a Starbucks across the road. The tv worked well but didn’t have any English channels apart from the news channels. It would’ve been nice if they had Netflix as an option. They have a restaurant which we ate at on the Saturday which was lovely but slightly expensive and we really empty but I’m sure that was just because of Germany’s nearing lockdown. Overall it was a really nice stay and I would recommend this hotel because of it’s location and it’s lovely rooms. My favourite thing was definitely the bathroom, the rainfall shower was so relaxing. Perfect.
This hotel is located very central in Berlin. The rooms are super, we like the design, very minimalistic. The rooms are very clean, like rest of the hotel and no noice from streets, so good windows
The checkin was not super. The biggest minus on this trip was the breakfast. Last we stayed there, we had the best breakfast buffet we ever had.
This time because of COVID, the buffet was reduced a lot and we still had to pay 25 euro, it was not value for money. If we had known this, we would have gone to a cafe instead
The good: Hot and powerful shower.
Location, especially if you are getting the train to Berlin.
The bad: Small TV (40”), couldn’t stream to it, no connection console, difficult to connect a USB stick or HDMI cable because the wall bracket doesn’t move that much. Sky news and BBC news didn’t work, CNN was in and out. This was mentioned to the reception desk, I was told it was down to their supplier.
Beds were very soft.
The ugly: Breakfast. Some guests did wear masks some didn’t, some staff were wearing masks without their noses covered. I had to explain, in my bad German, how to fry an egg so that it was “over medium”. The bacon was the incinerated streaky stuff, I did ask (2 weeks before) if they could get some proper breakfast bacon (back bacon). They were unable to and said it was down to their supplier. Putting low tables in front of what would normally be the self selection buffet area creates a narrow corridor where guests have to queue and walk past before ordering their food. It’s difficult to see what you can have because it’s all set back behind these tables and there are 2 or 3 people who take your requests. I appreciate it’s difficult in these Covid times, but I’ve seen other hotels handle this much better.
There isn’t any hotel outdoor area where you get some fresh air, sit down and have a coffee or beer or whatever. The ground floor bar looked dark and uninviting.
Young staff with little sign of leadership from senior management. If there’s a problem, blame the supplier it’s not the fault of the Steigenberger.
Lastly, a suggestion for the Steigenberger: more soap is needed above the bathroom sink, either a larger dispenser or refilled more often, people are washing their hands more often and have to wash their fabric masks. I was having to use shower gel from the shower because we ran out.
